Watch British-Brazilian Cruz cruise about in posh BMW cars with Travie McCoy in his new instant dance club classic ‘Higher.’
Cruz, whose song ‘Dynamite’ was one of the most popular songs of the year, spoke to MTV News about writing songs for the teen popstar Justin Bieber.
Cruz saidd: “[Justin] is a big deal. I don’t want to disappoint his fans. They can be angry little 12-year-olds. He’s fun. He’s young, so we’ll keep it in the right arena; just fun, young pop music.”
Don’t miss Taio Cruz performing John Lennon’s “Imagine” in Times Square on New Year’s Eve; the song is usually played over a loudspeaker just before midnight, this year Cruz will be the first musician to perform it live.
“I tried not to mess with it too much because it’s such a classic song and so many people love it,” the R&B star said.
“I didn’t want to make a dance version or a crazy up-tempo remix-sounding thing that people would absolutely kill me for.”
