New Taio Cruz Single!
MEGA-PLATINUM SINGER-SONGWRITER TAIO CRUZ RELEASES “HANGOVER” (FEATURING FLO RIDA)
AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY ON iTUNES
“HANGOVER” LEAD SINGLE ON CRUZ’S HIGHLY ANTICIPATED NEW ALBUM,
TY.O, OUT DECEMBER 6TH ON MERCURY RECORDS
(October 3, 2011 – New York, NY) – Mega-platinum-selling singer-songwriter TAIO CRUZ has released “Hangover (feat. Flo Rida),” the first single from his much-anticipated upcoming album, TY.O, out December 6th on Mercury Records. The song is being serviced to radio today and available exclusively on the iTunes Store beginning tomorrow, October 4th.
“Hangover (feat. Flo Rida)” sees Taio re-teaming with hit producer Dr. Luke (Katy Perry, Pitbull) for the first time since the duo co-produced Taio’s No. 1 blockbuster hit “Dynamite,” which sold more than 5 million singles and won three Billboard Music Awards, including “Top Pop Song,” “Top Digital Song” and “Top Hot 100 Song.” “Dynamite” appears on Taio’s acclaimed Mercury debut ROKSTARR and holds the distinction of being the most successful selling single in Island Def Jam history.
“Hangover” features additional production by Cirkut (Ke$ha), was mixed by Grammy winner Serban Ghenea (Usher, Britney Spears, Black Eyed Peas) and features a guest appearance by Flo Rida. Taio is shooting a video for “Hangover (feat. Flo Rida)” in Los Angeles this week with director Martin Weisz (Daughtry, P Diddy, Brandy).
“Hangover (feat. Flo Rida)” follows a year in which Taio sold 10 million singles in the U.S. and stood alone as the only artist to have two tracks on the iTunes Year-End Top 10: “Dynamite” and “Break Your Heart” (featuring Ludacris). “Break Your Heart” went triple-platinum and rocketed to No. 1 in the US, UK, Ireland, Norway and Sweden and made history with the biggest-ever jump to No. 1 by a Billboard chart newcomer. Taio maintained momentum by scoring his third No. 1 from ROKSTARR with “Higher,” then wrote and recorded the theme song (“Telling The World”) for the Fox animated film Rio, teamed with Coca-Cola for their “Perfect Harmony” program and co-penned Jennifer Lopez’s “I’m Into You.” He also co-wrote and sang on David Guetta’s previous single, “Little Bad Girl” (which also featured Ludacris) and wrote Guetta’s new single, “Without You” featuring Usher. Taio recently performed in Central Park as part of the “Good Morning America” Summer Concert Series, where he was awarded a plaque for single sales exceeding 10 million copies.
Taio Cruz is the first and only UK male solo artist to place two tracks in the Top 10 of Billboard’s year-end Hot 100. He’s also the first and only UK male solo artist to have two consecutive No. 1 singles in the U.S., and is YouTube’s most-viewed UK artist of all time, with over 100 million combined views.
