With the help of YouTube and TikTok, Jayden Bartels has suddenly become a star in recent years. At only 15, she became known as an actress, singer, composer and dancer. One of the exciting opportunities that Bartels has recently been given appears in a clip for Taylor Swift.
When the video was dropped, the young star hit social media to gush out of how much she loved being part of it. To crown his happiness, Swift responded with a comment that made Bartels day.
Jayden Bartels climbs to glory
For someone so young, Bartels has been around for a while. As a child, she was represented as a model and dancer. She appeared in a number of commercials and was even seen in an episode of Dance moms in 2016.
That same year, she found the platform that would make her famous, musical. She posted a clip that went viral, which made her an overnight sensation. Musical.ly has since merged with TikTok, where Bartels has 7.5 million followers.
Bartels’ expertise in social media was an important factor in his meteoric rise. She is a prolific producer of content, making videos of her music, dances, chats and even pranks. In addition to her legendary TikTok, she drew 3 million followers on Instagram and 700,000 subscribers on YouTube.
Taylor Swift wanted that kind of talent for his new video
Swift made the clip for her new song “The Man”, and it was the first time she tried to stage. It made the project even more important to her and she thought a lot about how she wanted to approach it.
As she had done with many of her previous videos, she wanted to include cameos of famous people. While many of the people she chose were well-established stars, like Katy Perry, Swift also wanted to include people who would reach a younger audience. She contacted three young artists who had made a name for themselves on platforms such as TikTok: Loren Gray, Dominic Toliver and Jayden Bartels.
With the participation of these social media phenomena in the project, it caught the attention of the younger crowd. On top of that, their help promoting the video on the social media sites that made them famous has boosted her even more. The directorial debut of Swift and the daring new song were a success.
The two stars connected on Twitter
The day the video was released, Bartels posted a photo of her and Swift since the shooting. It’s hard to recognize Swift as she wore her makeup from the video, which turned her into a very convincing man. Bartels was enthusiastic and grateful when he remembered the experience, saying it was one of his best days.
She didn’t seem to expect Swift to respond, but the singer surprised her. Swift left a comment on the post, saying, “Every time I see you in the video, I smile just because you were so good and so great to be with you. Thank you very much for being part of it !!! ”
Swift was not always easy to get along with other celebrities. Her quarrels with Katy Perry and Kanye West are an example of the problems she has encountered in the past. But it seems she doesn’t let the old drama keep her from encouraging the next generation of stars. If her comforting exchange with Bartels is any indication, Swift is focused on the future and brings young artists with her.
