"Break Your Heart" Video Review

Taio Cruz is out with the video to his new single "Break Your Heart", the first release from the British pop/R&B singer-songwriterís upcoming second album titled "Rokstarr" on Island/Universal.

The song was written and produced by Cruz and Fraser T Smith. Speaking of the song's lyrical background, Cruz told R&B writer Pete Lewis of Blues & Soul: "Its about breaking a girl's heart, but in a way that's kinda not on purpose. It's more that I'm just a single guy, trying to BE single and trying to REMAIN single. And sometimes, when you are in that place, you get girls who wanna be a part of what you're about - but, because you're not really ready for a relationship, those girls can end up being heartbroken. So what I'm basically saying is 'I might just break your heart. But I'm only gonna break your heart if you come through this way right now'."

"Break Your Heart" was originally penned for Cheryl Cole. The R&B star said that he wrote two songs for Cole's debut solo album, but her record label did not contact him about the tracks. "I wrote a couple of songs for Cheryl Cole, and 'Break Your Heart' was one of them, 'Stand Up' was another one, which is on her album, but we sent both of the songs to her record label and we didn't really hear back from them", Cruz told MTV News. "We just thought if they're not going to get back to us, we'll just carry on moving so I took it back, and changed the verses and made it work for a guy and then put it out." Cruz also added that the label got back to him after they had listened to a track but the song had already been sent to radio and would have been difficult to get back.

According to the song's other co-writer Fraser T Smith in an interview with HitQuarters, "Break Your Heart" was rejected because Polydor label boss Ferdy Unger-Hamilton felt it was too similar to "Heartbreaker".

The original music video was filmed in Marbella, Spain with new parts filmed in Miami in February 2010 to include model Nadya Nepomnyashaya and Ludacris.
