Iyaz Got His iPod Stuck on “Replay”

Every now and then, tracks appear on the charts that are sticky and you end up singing them when and where you least expect it. “Replay” has become a worldwide hit in Australia, New Zealand and Canada. As with many debutants these days, Iyaz was discovered on MySpace by none other than Sean Kingston. He’s known for another sticky hit – “Beautiful Girl,” a hit back in May 2007. “Replay” was produced by the same man behind Jason Derulo’s “Whatcha Say” and Leona Lewis’ “Better in Time” – J.R. Rotem. His breakthrough came in 2001 when he co-wrote and produced the track “Fancy” on Destiny’s Child’s Survivor album. Listen to the original version of “Replay” on the WelcheMusic vol.1 compilation and a Jason Nevins remix on vol.2.
