Taio Cruz AMA 2010

Taio Cruz at the American Music Awards 2010

Taio Cruz.

He is an English singer, songwriter and music producer. In 2008 he released his debut album Departure. Written, arranged and produced by himself, it achieved initial success in the United Kingdom and earned him a MOBO (Music of Black Origin) AWARD nomination.

In June 2010, he released his follow up album Rokstarr, which includes his UK and U.S. #1 single "Break Your Heart" and the second single "Dynamite" which reached number two in the Unted States, number one in England, Australia Belgium, Canada, Ireland and New Zealand, and top ten in most other countries. In 2010-2011 he teamed up with Travie Mccoy and released "Higher." In the past, he did the original version with Kylie Minogue.

On 1 September 2009, Cruz launched the brand Rokstarr; the fashion and accessories brand has a focus on sunglasses. Musicians such as Kanye West, Shontelle, and Keri Hilson have been seen wearing them. Speaking in October to R&B writer Pete Lewis, Cruz stated: "There's a load of US celebrities that are all rocking the sunglasses already – Kid Cudi, Justin Timberlake, Kanye West... Then in the UK we have The Saturdays, JLS, Daniel Merriweather – who've all been twittering and writing on their blogs how much they love them. So yeah, it's definitely my new album 'Rokstarr' and the fashion brand that are my two main focuses at the moment."

Meanwhile, speaking again to Lewis in April 2010, Cruz revealed: "We're currently looking to expand the brand and possibly go into things like watches. I've also got a new subsidiary of Rokstarr called 'Rok By Rokstarr'. And we've just started doing things like jeans and T-shirts, and stuff that more of the fans of Taio Cruz can buy. Because with Rokstarr in itself being so expensive, a lot of the kids out there who want to buy Rokstarr things can't. So we're bringing in stuff that's a little bit more High Street and more affordable." Down below is a list of Taio Cruz songs:
