Philip George changes the channel when his songs come on the radio.
The 'Wish You Were Mine' hitmaker has admitted that while he loves knowing his songs are getting air time, he's heard them so many times that he often opts for another channel if they get played.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "It sounds really bad but I heart it so much - and I do still get weirded out by it - but it's almost become normal to me. It's weird because you hear your songs all the time. 'Wish You Were Mine' for instance, if that gets played on the radio, I always seem to turn over the channel because I've heard it that many times."
The 22-year-old DJ - whose debut single entered the UK charts at Number 2 and remained there for three weeks - also confessed that although he'd love to become as successful as 'Summer' hitmaker Calvin Harris, the Scottish star's level of fame "scares the life" out of him.
He explained: "Seeing Calvin Harris you just think, 'Wow'. He's such a legend and so big and so well respected as well and so genuine. He doesn't ever make a fool of himself or anything like that. He's such a great role model but at the same time I don't think I'd ever want to be as big as him. Nowhere near as big as him. His actual status scares the life out of me to be honest with you, it really does.
"I think he's so big that ... I'd love to be able to get to that point where you're respected and people know who you are if you say your name but I think you just want to be at that respect level with the public and other DJs as well."
Philip's new single 'Alone No More', featuring Anton Powers, is out tomorrow (02.09.15).
