UK musician, John Newman, stopped by to chat with JJ about his recent stardom in the United States and how he became such a success. He dished that he originally planned on being a mechanic, but had a career change at the young age of 16 when he decided to study music instead.

JJ also got the scoop on the singer’s latest music video for his hit, "Love Me Again," that has reached 74 million views on YouTube. Newman told JJ that he set the video in a pool hall because he wanted it to be a less glamorous version of Romeo and Juliet.

Newman also shared with JJ what it was like to perform on The Late Night Show with Jimmy Fallon.
