Taio Cruz is definitely making a name for himself here in the U.S. and I couldn’t be happier. His debut album Rokstarr entered the Billboard 200 at #8 and his second single “Dynamite” entered the Hot 100 at #26 (his first single, “Break Your Heart” is still doing well at #6). Check out this live performance of his new single on Jimmy Kimmel Live on June 10th. It’s especially great to see Cruz doing so well without the support of a mainstream guest vocalist/rapper like Ludacris. Given that the rapper was added to the track for the U.S. release of Cruz’s first single, I was somewhat worried that the track was doing well BECAUSE of the rapper, but this goes to prove that Cruz is indeed succeeding all on his own. Well done Mr. Cruz.
