We’re counting down the days until our Winter 2019 issue featuring Jacob Sartorius hits newsstands on December 18th!
At 16 years old, the packed-with-positivity “Hooked on a Feeling” singer is on a mission — along with his nearly 10-million strong army of Sartorians — to share his story one song at a time. And after dropping bop after bop (including his most recent EP “Better With You“), he’s proving just how far believing in yourself can get you.
Tag along for a behind-the-scenes look at his photoshoot for our most recent cover feature, and keep scrolling for a handful of all-access on-set secrets!
What he did:
In between poses, the talented teen scrolled through his Instagram feed, shared childhood memories with the crew (did you know he grew up on the same small-town street as In Real Life’s Michael Conor and used to play him in one-on-one basketball?!) and showed off his freestyle rap skills.
What he listened to:
Jacob played DJ for the day and blasted some of his current faves through the studio speakers: from Madison Beer and Shawn Mendes and everyone in between. He even jammed out to his very own “Problems,” which had just dropped earlier that morning!
What he ate:
To refuel during a long day of shooting, Jacob chowed down on his go-to Chick-fil-A order (nuggets, a spicy chicken sandwich, and lots and lots of waffle fries) before snacking on a big bag of Hot Cheetos.
What he wore:
Along with a handful of stylish looks, the 16-year-old singer sported his signature black nail polish—and even discovered that the color appears blue under certain lights on set!
