Singapore singer-songwriter JJ Lin will join the big league. Megastar was signed by the United Talent Agency (UTA), one of Hollywood’s largest talent agencies.
UTA represents him in the United States and Europe, and his own company, JFJ Productions, continues to represent him elsewhere.
In an Instagram post on Wednesday (April 28th), UTA said: “Famous artists have reached over 121 billion streams on music streaming platforms around the world and have won nearly 400 music awards across Asia.”
Other celebrities represented by UTA include singer Dolly Parton, American band Jonas Brothers, actor Harrison Ford, actress Jessica Alba, and director Wes Anderson.
Taiwan-based 40-year-old Lin posted the news on Instagram with the caption “I’m happy to be part of the UTA family.”

After working in the Mandopop scene for 18 years, he released his first English album, Like You Do, last month.
Last week he released a British duet, Bedroom, with British singer Anne-Marie.
Prolific songwriter Lin has written over 100 songs for other artists, many of which are hits. He has previously worked with musicians such as Hans Zimmer, Jason Mraz, Ayumi Hamasaki, Steve Aoki and Jackson Wang.
He is widely popular in Asia, and the 66 shows of the 2018 and 2019 Sanctuary World Tour sold out within 10 minutes of the ticket’s release.
