"He's a lovely guy, and he makes very good music," John exclusively told Capital's showbiz reporter Kevin Hughes. "He's a great songwriter and he puts it into a modern way.

"He kind of craft songs and touches them with his absolute genius and seems to be smashing number one every time," he explained. "For me as well, there's so many EDM artists and dance artists out there but it's so nice to have somebody that really crafts their music and really cares about the songs."
