Jason Derulo is starting off 2016 on a happy note!
After E! News exclusively confirmed the singer was dating Daphne Joy, the couple just so happened to ring in the New Year together near Miami. So, did the two have a good time?
"I'm just enjoying life," Jason told E! News before taking the stage at the 2016 People's Choice Awards Wednesday night. "I don't want to talk too much about it, but I'm definitely enjoying life right now."
The pictures on Instagram certainly echoed that sentiment. Over the weekend, the singer shared a couple's shot with the caption, "Happy New Years from South Beach #BaeWatch #NoTypo @DaphneJoy." His girl added, "#BaeWatch with my baby."
While fans may love the pair together, their eyes also likely don't mind the 26-year-old's impressive abs. Whether on vacation or teasing his new single "Naked," Jason can't help but show off his figure. So what's his secret? A lot of hard work!
"It's all about taking in calories for fuel and not pleasure. I like to enjoy myself but I think of food more as fuel than a party," he explained to E! News. "For the most part, I've stopped dieting and it's more about a lifestyle."
He continued, "It's all about a balance lifestyle but I do eat a high protein, very low-carb. Very rarely will I have a piece of bread. I also work out three times a day sometimes."

Perhaps those abs will be on display when the singer takes to the stage for Wednesday's star-studded award show. Jason along with Shawn Mendes are scheduled to perform at the annual telecast where the winners are picked by the people at home.
"I'm doing a mashup with ‘Get Ugly' and ‘Want to Want Me,'" he teased to E! News. "From a performance perspective, you can expect a lot of energy, tons of dancing. I'm really going to push the envelope dance wise. It's definitely a lost art."
The 2016 People's Choice Awards air Wednesday night at 9 p.m. only on CBS.
