We’re hitting repeat on this Brit's hot tune Stay with Me off his acclaimed debut album, In the Lonely Hour.

- The 22-year-old got his big break after appearing on British electro-rockers Disclosure’s track Latch. Soon after, he was featured on Naughty Boy’s La La La, which earned him his first No 1 spot on the UK charts.

- Family ties! He’s a third cousin of British songbird Lily Allen and her brother, Game of Thrones star Alfie Allen.

- He admits he’s a hopeless romantic and that most of his debut album is inspired by someone he “fell in love with last year”, but who “didn't love me back”.&

- He suffers from severe obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). “I have really bad OCD and it's getting worse. I have to check taps before I leave the house to make sure I’ve checked everything in case it floods,” he says.

- In 2009 his mom, Kate Cassidy, got fired from her job because her company claimed she was spending too much time on Sam's career. Ouch!

- He’s a massive fan of Beyoncé and cites her as one of his influences.

- He’s also a huge Modern Family fan. “I just think Cam [Eric Stonestreet] is the best thing I've ever seen in my entire life.”
