“Now I dream of finding the person I want to share my life with, man or woman.”

Jaehn, who also reached Number Two on the Official UK Singles Chart in 2015 with a remix cover of Chaka Khan's 'Ain't Nobody (Loves Me Better)', added that his rural upbringing had hindered his journey towards accepting his sexuality.

““As a teenager, that influences you. And when you realize that you also find guys attractive, that can make you unsure," he said.
