Taio Cruz: Certified “Rokstarr”

Taio Cruz, whose carrier single “Break Your Heart” crashed into the UK and US Charts at no. 1 and now invading the Philippine charts , firmly establishing the 26 year-old Londoner as a genuine solo artist in his own right, has his hugely anticipated second album, ”ROKSTARR”.

Special guests on the album will include superhot rising US star Ke$ha and Tinchy Stryder. Written, produced and arranged by the multi-talented Cruz the ten track set also features “Dirty Picture”, “I’ll Never Love Again”, “No Other One” and a bonus track “Feel Again “.

Although “Break Your Heart” is his first solo release this year, Taio has already enjoyed an extremely productive and successful 2009. As well as completing work on “Rokstarr”, the follow up to the 150,000 selling debut album “Departure”, Taio has been writing and producing for Cheryl Cole’s feverishly anticipated new record.

“Break Your Heart” is Taio’s first solo release since exploding onto the South East Asia scene with the massive chart smashers ”Dirty Picture” and “Dynamite”. The critical and commercial success of the singles and album quickly established Cruz as one of the most exciting British artists to emerge in recent years. In the last two years Taio’s writing and production skills have been enlisted by among others Leona Lewis, Usher, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Pussycat Dolls, JLS, Anastacia, Alexandra Burke and many more, while Simon Cowell called Departure “one of the best albums of 2008”.

The success of the number 1 single, whose video has now received an astonishing 1.3 million views on Youtube, and the imminent release of the new album, offers further proof, if proof were needed, that in Taio Cruz, the UK has its very own top–drawer artist/songwriter/producer who can stand shoulder to shoulder with the best that American pop has to offer.

Taio Cruz’ latest album Rokstarr is now available in all Astroplus, Astrovision, Fully Booked, Music One, O Music & Video, Odyssey Music & Video and SM Music Box stores nationwide.
