Jordyn Taylor is a successful American real estate agent, as well as a singer-songwriter and model. She became famous after it was revealed that she was the girlfriend of Trevor Noah, who is the current host of The Daily Show, shown on the Comedy Central network. However, there is a lot more to this interesting lady than just her romantic partner, and her short life is truly an amazing one.
A Music Career and Much More
Jordyn Taylor, also known as Jordy, was born on November 14, 1990 to Jason and Elayne Braff. Her Filipino parents were also parents to Jordy’s two brothers, Justin Taylor and Mikey Taylor. Jordy is the middle child, and all three siblings were raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Taylor’s ethnic background is a combination of Filipino, Austrian, Mexican, and Chinese, and her dark skin is one of her most attractive attributes.
Since she was a child, Jordyn Taylor has been fascinated by the music business. Her first exposure to the music industry came when she signed with Manta Productions, and she eventually released a song titled “Strong” on MySpace. She was only 15 years old when she signed with Manta.
Taylor has a song titled “Accessory,” which came out in 2009. In 2012 she released her debut album, which is self-titled, and her second album, called “Shine,” was released in 2013. She has had no other recordings since then.
Some of her songs are written and sung for Vincent Giuliano, Taylor’s boyfriend who was killed in a September 2011 car accident. Some of the songs she’s recorded include “It’s VEBENE” (2013), “Female Intuition” (2010), “Never Again” (2012), and “Set Me Free” (2013). Her songs are said to be quite moving.
Before she left the music business, Taylor wrote the soundtrack for the movie “Confessions of a Shopaholic,” and she has worked with musicians that include Darkchild, Fernando Garlbay, and RedOne.
Exploring New Avenues
Taylor has a presence on many social media outlets, including Instagram and Twitter. She has roughly 35,000 followers on the former and 14,000 on the latter. She also has a Facebook page. She is very close to her entire family and often posts pictures of them on her various online sites.
Since her last album, Taylor has enjoyed a successful modeling career, and her mixed ethnic background has made her a favorite for many types of modeling gigs. She currently is busy with a lot of those modeling gigs in the New York City area, which is where she is now based. Many of her gigs in the past have been for automobile manufacturers. At 5’ 7”, she is likely not one of the tallest models in the business today, but nonetheless, she has managed to stay busy.
With dark hair and dark eyes, not to mention her perfect figure, Taylor’s modeling career has been quite successful, being a popular figure at automotive shows for manufacturers such as RAM and others.
Trevor Noah’s Girlfriend
Although they have since split up, Taylor dated The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah for roughly four years, and the two were seen together at many red-carpet events during that time. No one knows why they broke up, but they have remained friends since the split because the breakup was amicable. While their relationship was in full swing, Taylor even visited his family in South Africa, which shows the relationship was quite serious at one point.
Even though Taylor and Noah are no longer together, Taylor still has photographs of him on her social media accounts, likely because they are still friends. Indeed, her many adventures shared with Noah during the time they were together were often the main topic of her Instagram and Twitter posts, which is something all of her followers looked forward to.
Despite her very multi-talented career, it is Taylor’s music that she seems to be most known for. In 2011, her song “Got My Prisila On,” written about a type of Japanese wig, hit number one in the Foreign Music category in Japan on iTunes. Most of her songs fit into the R&B category, and she has composed music with lyricist Jackie Boyz, who has also written for artists such as Madonna and Justin Bieber.
Taylor has also performed for a summer music festival for MTV in Japan, where she sang songs such as “Zushi Fes.” Although she has been signed with several recording companies since her stint with Manta, all of her music has achieved a good bit of success, which is one of the reasons her net worth is estimated to be roughly $2 million.
Back when she was working on an online music program on MySpace, she was interviewed by the country singer Carrie Underwood, and she has collaborated with some very well-known producers during her music career.
Attractive and very talented, Jordyn Taylor is not likely to disappear from the public eye anytime soon. Another thing is very clear – she has built up quite a resume, which should keep her busy for many years to come.
