Justin Timberlake Has a New Protege Esmee

Justin Timberlake has just signed the first artist to his label Tennman Records. Her name is Esmee Denters, and her voice will blow you away!

Esmee recently hit the studio to record her first single with Justin and Polow Da Don. But she had an interesting journey to get her where she is today.

Esmee was working as a waitress when she decided to post herself singing some of her favorite artists’ songs on YouTube. She would sing favorites from Beyonce, Natasha Bedingfield, and Alicia Keys, and soon racked up 21 million views. One of those views, luckily enough, was Justin Timberlake.

He signed Esmee, and began executive producing and co-producing most of her debut album. Several notable industry people have also collaborated on it, like Polow Da Don, Stargate, OneRepublic’s Ryan Teddy, and Toby Gad.
