In the latest installment of ARTISTdirect.com's See the Music series, international pop superstar Taio Cruz reveals the meaning behind his new smash hit single "Hangover," which features rapper Flo Rida.
Cruz admits that song was penned not for himself, but someone else! He says, "Funny enough, as per usual, I wrote it for somebody else."
But that's not the sole irony of "Hangover." Cruz is not a drinker, and therein lies the depth of meaning behind this clubalicious jam! The singer says he was out partying with friends and got inspired. He says, "It's quite funny, I don't drink myself. It's not a true story [about me] but about everyone who goes out and goes crazy, and has an incredible party. You wake up remembering the night before, with a mild headache. I thought it was fun and I thought it really tracks the way those people live." Capturing the essence of a hangover in a pop song? Love it! Tons of people will raise their glasses in the club when this starts roaring through the speakers.
