About Jacob Sartorius
Jacob Sartorius, whose real name is Rolf Jacob Sartorius, is an American internet personality, singer, and songwriter that rose to fame using his social media accounts. In the mid-2010s, he uploaded comedic videos of himself on Vine as well as lip-syncing videos on TikTok and musical.ly that gathered millions of views and followers. As a singer, Jacob has released four extended plays that secured a recording deal with the label RCA Records.
How Did Jacob Sartorius Get So Rich?
What makes the social media superstar so rich is the fact that he began his music career when he was just gaining a lot of attention online. In the summer of 2016, after posting multiple lip-syncing videos on TikTok, Jacob became one of the quickest rising stars on Musical.ly. By early August, he had more than eight million followers, making him one of the top stars on the app. Around the same time, he was able to sign a deal with the label T3 Music Group and create his first song. His debut single titled “Sweatshirt” was released in May and peaked at number 90 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Around the same time, he embarked on his very first mini-tour. In July and October, he released two additional singles called “Hit or Miss” and “All Of My Friends”. A few months later, in January 2017, he released his debut extended play – “The Last Text”. The project was able to land in various charts in more than six countries around the world. His quick rise to fame in the music industry also helped him land a recording deal with the label RCA Records that is reportedly worth $1 million. With the label, he quickly produced and released his first major-label project – his second EP “Left Me Hanging”.
Why is he so famous?
Jacob Sartorius is famous because of the many videos that he uploaded on social media platforms such as Vine, YouTube, and TikTok. He was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma on October 2, 2002. Sartorius was adopted shortly after his birth because his biological parents were unable to take care of him. He was raised by his adoptive parents in Reston, Virginia. When he was seven years old, interested in music, Rolf began singing whilst also acting in high school musicals through which he discovered his true love for performing.
At first, he attended the Flint High School (based in Oakton, Virginia) before he was homeschooled. In 2014, when he was eleven years old, he created his channel on Vine and began uploading his very first video. The video aims to spread the message about anti-bullying and quickly went viral, helping his name rise to stardom. Throughout the rest of the year, he continued to create and publish content on Vine that helped him maintain a large social media following. He also joined the app Musical.ly and that’s how his online fame took off.
What Makes Him So Successful?
The triumph of the “Sweatshirt” singer comes from his ability to maintain a large following on all of his social media accounts all while releasing music. After picking up some momentum with his first two projects, one released through T3MG and one through RCA Records, he spent the next two years doing the same. After Vine was defunct, he switched his attention to the video-sharing platform YouTube, where he uploads all of his songs. Presently, his channel has over 3 million subscribers and his videos gathered more than 364 million views in total.
In 2016, it was announced that the social media mogul had filmed a documentary that will premiere in September. The biography film is called ”Life of Jacob” and it consists of five episodes. It focuses on the young artist’s life and his rise to popularity. Overall, the documentary created with a budget of $100.000 was able to amass no more than $250.000 in the box office and was met with rather negative reviews. Apart from the biography, in the past few years, Jacob Sartorius has appeared in several award ceremonies and television specials such as “Entertainment Tonight Canada”, and the “2019 Teen Choice Awards”.
Jacob Sartorius is only eighteen years old and already has more than 30 million followers on all of his social media accounts. The social media personality turned singer-songwriter began posting videos as a way to “escape reality” in the mid-2010s and quickly caught the attention of his fans thanks to his comedy and lip-syncing videos.
