While the couple is still in the early stages of their relationship, the source continued to say that the “Skin of My Teeth” singer is excited to go with the flow. “She would love to see this relationship continue to grow but doesn’t want to put too much pressure on things. She is loving every minute of the journey and can’t wait to see where things go,” they said.

Another insider gave some details about how their relationship began and eventually bloomed into a romance. “They met at the start of the year through music, he’s been producing and writing for her and at first it was just a friendship but then it turned into more,” they said. “She’s become friends with all of his friends too and they have a lot of fun together.”
