On Thursday, the singer joined Nick Jonas and Warner Bros. Records executive Mike Elizondo for the GRAMMY Foundation’s annual summer camp (held at USC), where they answered questions by high school students from all across the country. Though Chance was discovered on YouTube just one year ago, he’s learned the ropes by taking a page straight out of the Justin Bieber guidebook.
“Justin’s an amazing guy,” Chance told The Hollywood Reporter. “I’ve met him a couple times and he’s a good friend, but [our music] is very different.”

“He told me to stick to my family and stick to God,” Chance said. “Very good words to live by.”

Chance, whose debut (via Ellen DeGeneres‘ eleveneleven Records) hits stores on August 2, also detailed his favorite experience of the past year.
“I think my favorite moment has been just simply touring,” he admitted. “I love being on the road and being able to see how the hard work in the studio really pays off. And just being able to shake hands with the fans, it means a lot.”
