TalentX Entertainment totes itself as the lead creative partner in the social media world. The company has attracted a lineup of A-list influencers and earlier this year, the company brought together six of TikTok’s leading influencers in a Bel Air mansion dubbed Sway LA to tantalize fans by collaborating on content.
