Jordin Sparks' honey, Jason Derulo, is known for singing his own name in songs, and the trend has caught on with friends and fans of the "In My Head" singer.

"Sometimes, you know, just being with people or friends they come and they go, 'Hi, Jason Derulo.' They say his full name, instead of just, 'Hi, Jason.' And they say it to me too -- even when he's not with me. They're like (sings), 'How's Jason Derulo?'" Jordin told Access Hollywood Live's Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Thursday.

Jordin and Jason have been linked for about a year now and the former "American Idol" champ explained how their romance blossomed.

"We actually did a show together in the Bahamas last year and he had like this space in the club afterwards and so we went there and he asked me where I was going afterwards and we were both in LA, so I went to his rehearsal and then rehearsal turned into dinner and dinner into the studio and it's been great ever since," she said.

Earlier this year, Jordin's film debut came out - "Sparkle" - in which she co-starred with Whitney Houston, and Jordin, a spokesperson for Excedrin's "Managing Migraines" campaign, said she had a blast working with the legend.

"She was just so incredible and she had this like inner strength and inner peace about her. She would just walk around and she was so kind to everyone and she just wanted to see us all shine," Jordin said. "The experience I had with her, she was just on top of her game. Just absolutely incredible."
