Cruz control

Last year, I briefly turned my attention to quite-good British soul hopeful Taio Cruz [look here]. Amazingly, despite the clout and influence I carry with the UK's record buying public, his two singles tanked outside the top 20.

Undeterred, Mr Cruz is back with a new record in which he's decided to stop trying soul music and do a dance "number" instead. Anything to boost the profile, eh kids?

Come On Girl is categorically quite good. It owes a large debt to Justin Timberlake's My Love and those tacky Freemasons remixes that Beyonce seems so keen on. But it only really comes into its own when Cruz steps aside to let foxy rapper-for-hire Luciana do her thing.

"You want to take a bite? Come whet my appetite," sounding like she could probably devour Taio in one mouthful.

According Taio's Myspace blog, anticipation for his new album Departure is so feverish that its March 17th release date has been moved all the way forward to March 10th.

Imagine that.
