The Truth About Music

Harris’ Song of the Week: “Break Your Heart” by Taio Cruz (Feat. Ludacris)

A few days ago I heard this song on the radio. All I was able to catch before it ended was that it featured Ludacris and that I loved it. This Tuesday, I was happy to find it waiting on the homepage of the iTunes Store where it was the #1 song on their charts!! I knew it was good when I first heard it, I didn’t know it was that good.

The song itself begins with a racing electro verse with Ludacris rapping over it before breaking into the true verse with Taio Cruz doing his thing. Cruz’s album “Rokstarr” was released back in October of 2009 and although it saw some movement on the U.K. charts, it never caught on in America. After the remix by Ludacris, the song raced to #1 after one week.

What makes songs like this great is that they are feel good, upbeat, and fun hip-hop songs. Ludacris bounces back from a disaster of a collaboration with Justin Bieber (“Baby“). Additionally, this song has the potential to introduce American audiences to Cruz. Only time will tell if this song will stick around but from where I sit, this song could be huge!! Check out the song on YouTube below the fold.
