Taio Cruz’s drinking music
Taio Cruz created his latest single ‘Hangover’ to honour drinkers who get “completely smashed” in Ibiza.
The ‘Higher’ hitmaker was inspired to write a track celebrating the party lifestyle after a visit to the Spanish Island – famous for its dance music club scene – and seeing the effects too much alcohol had on people first hand.
He said: “‘Hangover’ was inspired by me being in Ibiza this year. We had a whole week of going out and it being crazy, even though I didn’t actually get drunk myself, but everyone around me was getting completely smashed. I felt like, ‘We need to create an anthem for them. That would be fun.’
“I have to be honest: I really don’t drink that much. I really don’t. Seriously, I don’t.”
Despite insisting he doesn’t like to drink very often, the 28-year-old producer and singer once had a “crazy evening” where two girls jumped on his back while he was serving drinks behind a bar.
He added to MTV: “I have had the odd occasion where it’s gotten a bit crazy, and it’s always in Ibiza. For me, I think my craziest moment was in Ibiza at a bar with a couple girls on me, piggybacked whilst behind the bar making drinks. I remember that was a bit of a crazy evening.”
