Taio Cruz - Break Your Heart (Casette Remix)

"From Carole King to Timbaland, and Pharrell Williams to Smokey Robinson, there's a great tradition of r'n'b songwriters and producers stepping out of the shadows to become stars in their own right. A new name is about to be added to that illustrious list, as a joint venture between Universal Records in the UK and Motown in the US presents Taio Cruz. This precocious 23 year-old has already cut a swathe through the upper echelons of the American music industry. After Dallas Austin picked him out as "the new Babyface", Taio worked with Jazze Pha and Rich Harrison - writing for Usher, Mya and Britney Spears - and was set to become part of Tricky's currently all-conquering Red Zone operation (that's not Tricky the Bristolian maverick, but Tricky the US super-producer behind Rihanna's "Umbrella") when his own solo career began to take off. In the last couple of months Taio's transatlantic work has continued with the London wunderkind writing & producing with Esseme, the first signing to Justin Timberlake's new label. Taio was also chosen to write and produce the debut single, "Let Me See Dat", for exciting new Island / Def Jam US artist Vawn as well as several additional tracks for Vawn's forthcoming album. In addition Mr. Cruz has also been working with Mark Ronson protégé Daniel Merriweather on his debut album." Full article available at
