Taylor Swift is partially responsible for one of Universal Music Group’s newest acts!
Christian Owens, now known by his artist name Owenn, danced for the 31-year-old folklore singer-songwriter on the Reputation Tour, and co-starred in the “Lover” music video in 2019.
As it turns out, Taylor helped behind-the-scenes to make sure he got a meeting with record label executives for a potential deal.
Find out what happened…
“We had a whole bunch of label meetings. Taylor Swift was a huge co-sign and help…a lot of people don’t know. She actually contacted the head of Republic herself on my behalf, which was kind of crazy. I get to the meeting. They were like ‘Yo, why is Taylor Swift so adamant about us signing you? We want to see you perform!’” Christian explained during a live stream on Instagram.
Taylor Swift also just unveiled something exciting for Swifties.
Check out Owenn‘s debut single “Baby Girl” inside!
