Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson repositioning Black Rock musician on Instagram


In an age where we’re still so connected through social media, we never know exactly who might be seeing something we post online.

For a 31-year-old Black Rock based musician Andrew Angus, that person was actor and former wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

“[There was] my face slap in the middle of ‘The Rock’s’ Instagram page with 231 million subscribers at the time, ”Angus said. “I’m lying on this hotel bed panicking. It was wild.

Angus, who goes by the stage name Drew Angus, talks about his cover of “Happy Together” of Turtles which he posted on his Instagram. It ended up being reposted on Johnson’s Instagram account. The video shows Angus serenading a bottle of Teremana Tequila, Johnson’s tequila company, with a cover of the iconic song.

“When you drink your ‘mana, you magically sing as well as @drewangusmusic !,” Johnson wrote with the re-post.

Johnson’s post has since garnered 1.5 million views and 248,000 likes within a week of its initial post.

“It was amazing to have something [happen to me] that I thought was kind of a joke, ”Angus said.

Angus was in his hotel room outside Myrtle Beach when he received a message that Johnson had reposted his video. “The day before, there was more activity on my Instagram than I was used to. We couldn’t figure it out, ”Angus said. “I see more real activity [and] real people excited about my music. “

Angus revealed that he targeted “The Rock” and Teremana Tequila on social media. He had previously received a repost from Teremana and said he didn’t expect much after that.

Since Johnson’s repost, Angus’ Instagram has reached over a million accounts and continues to grow.

“It couldn’t have happened at a better time,” Angus added.

On April 30, just three days after Johnson’s post, the Westport native released his latest single, “Made to Love You.”

The song, produced by Grammy Award-winning Mikhail Pivovarov and written by Angus and co-author Matt Giella, will be the first dance song at Angus’ best friend’s wedding.

“Made to Love You” will also have its first music video on May 7th. The unique music video was directed by Connecticut native Shari Goldenberg and was choreographed by New York ballet dancers Silken Kelly and Jonatan Lujan.

Along with the new single and new music video, Angus is preparing a new album for release in late 2021 and, depending on COVID restrictions, will be touring with the singer-songwriter from Louisiana. Marc Broussard in November.
