He’s the cutie behind the track Memory, featuring Chris Brown. Here’s more on the Here with You singer, whose debut album is due out later this year.

- The 25-year-old’s full name is Asher Monroe Book. He was born in Arlington, a small town in Virginia, America, and has two siblings.

- Thanks to those killer good looks he’s featured in fashion campaigns for US retailer Macy’s and designer Tommy Hilfiger.

- Before becoming a singer, Asher was an actor and had roles in The Mentalist and the movie Fame, among others. “Acting is a lot of fun. I enjoy every moment and at the same time can support myself and put food on the table for my family,” he says.

- He counts legendary Elton John as his mentor. The British pop star often gives him advice about music and Asher says his debut album was influenced by Elton.

- Asher loves sharing motivational messages on social media. Here’s one of his posts: “Life will never pass you by if you commit to one thing a day that makes you happy.”

- He’s addicted to energy and vitamin drinks and believes they make him sleep better (er, really?).

- It seems there’s no special lady in the singer’s life – but you may have to compete with his dog! Asher is mad about his Tibetan mastiff, Bear, and often shares cute snaps of them together on Instagram.
