Lauv sat down with Mo Bounce to talk about his amazing song "I Like Me Better," but we ended up learning so much more about this up and coming singer-songwriter. He's known for penning heart wrenching songs you can't help but love, however, he's still just a normal 22-year-old guy at heart. Here's a list of everything we learned about Lauv that you should definitely know, too!

While talking with Mo Bounce, Lauv revealed the real meaning behind his stage name. It turns out Lauv means lion in Latvian. 

2) His Sign

3) Lauv's real name
