Taio Cruz has landed back on planet pop with a hearty thud, via his new single ‘Do What You Like’, the first to be lifted from his upcoming fourth studio album. And there’s no doubt he’ll be hoping the new track will explode at retailers across the world a little like… well ‘Dynamite’. But is it up to the task?
The ’80s influences here are evident from the moment you press ‘play’ and to that end, it feels a little derivative. But what it may lack in originality, it more than makes up for in the feel-good stakes, with some seriously sexy falsetto choruses, a light, airy beat and refined retro synths.
Add in the totally chic clip and you’ve got a track that’s just ready to blow.
