According to the singer–songwriter, working together on Euphoria’s second season helped jumpstart their relationship.

‘In those moments, your relationship is accelerated because you’re so vulnerable with someone, immediately. Which usually takes a long time,’ he explained.

‘Some people fall in love, like, f***ing months after they meet, or years after. We developed an attraction — it shipped it up so fast. We just really got to know each other so quickly,’ he added.

The Babydoll singer joined the cast of the hit HBO series in the second season, which premiered in January and he is confirmed to return for the show’s third season.
