The dude in Taylor Swift’s “Lover” music video

Everyone in the world knows Taylor Swift‘s new album “Lover” is out. And along with it, a new video for the title track, “Lover.”


The views are rising at a rate of 4.8 million views a day. That’s 200k per hour. That’s over 3,000 views every minute. Craziness.

But after watching the video, you might be wondering, who’s this guy playing the part of Taylor’s lover?

His name is Christian Owens. And no, it’s not this Christian Owens. There’s a good article here about his history with Taylor and other acts like Beyonce and Normani.

In the video, Taylor and Christian are playing board games, one which is a teaser for another song of hers called “Cruel Summer.” Some of the lyrics are here on this board game, and on a mural painted in NYC before the album was released.


Thanks for stopping by!
