You’re not the only one who stays up all night binge-watching old Johnny Orlando videos!

The 17-year-old artist (whose next single “See You” finally drops tonight at midnight!) has been singing on social media for nearly a decade — and so, naturally, sometimes he finds himself taking a walk down memory lane and taking a look at his classic YouTube covers from early on. Hey, we definitely don’t blame him! Eight-year-old Johnny is too cute to resist.

But during a recent interview, the talented teen told us that he both loves and hates watching those throwback videos, because while it’s cool to see how far he’s come as a singer, he also can’t help but cringe looking back:

“Sometimes, I can only take it for so long though until I’m like, ‘This is weird. I have to stop doing this.’ I remember making those covers and being like, ‘Oh, this one’s my best one yet. I’m so pumped to put this out.’ It’s cool to see the progression. I feel like I’m going to appreciate that when I’m super old!”
