The music video for Miller's latest single, "First Flight Home," has already racked up more than 1 million views on YouTube and for good reason. Not only is his easy, breezy "hip-pop" super catchy, but the 21-year-old is easy on the eyes, too. Just ask his 680K+ Instagram followers…

ET caught up with Jake at Lucky Strike in Hollywood, where fans lined up for a chance to bowl and snap selfies with the singer/rapper. Jake tells us he's just trying to make "positive, uplifting music."

Before he was signed to Warner Bros. Records, the Miami-born Miller got his start the new school way -- by posting original songs to YouTube. He previously released two independent EPs, 2012's Spotlight and 2013's Us Against Them, selling more than 33,000 albums and peaking at No. 5 on the Billboard Rap chart.
