Imagine being a teenager and having one of the world's most famous musicians include your music in a curated playlist alongside her influences, colleagues, and other faves? That's exactly what happened to 19-year-old Carlie Hanson, who has more than once been featured in Taylor Swift's personally-curated, much-awaited playlists.

“Everything that happens to us is just part of a story we’ll tell someday," writes Taylor as she described her latest one, Playlist by ME!, featured on Apple Music. "These songs are the soundtrack to my story at the moment. I love this playlist for kitchen dance parties, long drives home, sun-soaked reflection, or aggressive bopping. All songs have been loved and appreciated by ME!”

But while Taylor's playlist definitely helped Carlie gain more fans, she was definitely recognized on her own merit. The music video for Carlie's "Back In My Arms," Taylor's chosen track, already has over 2.5 million views as of writing:

Her previous single, "Only One," was also featured in Taylor's 2017 Apple Music playlist Taylor Swift's Favorite Songs.

On September 27, Carlie Hanson performed an intimate gig in Manila during Warner Night, a media showcase held in Pioneer in Mandaluyong. She performed her top songs with electric energy fit for a full-blown concert. "You guys already know me?" she said in disbelief, as it's her first time in the country and already the guests were singing along to her songs.

"We believe Carlie is the next big thing in music because there’s no one currently like her around. She’s still so young but she’s already an amazing songwriter and performer. Her energy is fresh and she is very real and relatable too and all these reflect on her music. No surprise, Taylor Swift is already a huge fan," says Vicky Malong, marketing manager of Warner Music Philippines.
