A talentless "artist" from the British Virgin
Islands, "discovered" via MySpace
by Sean Kingston.
His first single, titled "Replay" is very
cliché and easily forgettable. Too ignorant to note that an iPod
does not have a "replay" function
(it is known as "repeat"), Iyaz's debut single
relates a girl he has recently met with
a melody he cannot rid his mind
of (and thus a comparison to said non-existent "replay" function
of an Apple iPod). Furthermore, a brand name-drop
such as that of an iPod was not entirely necessary; a generic
"mp3 player" would
have sufficed in the situation.
The aforementioned single also
makes use of the term shawty
, almost as if to be "hip" or "fresh." Note how these two latter terms are as (if not, more) dated than
the former, which
speaks volumes about how desperate Iyaz must have been
in the search for potential listeners.tl;dr
an awful artist.
"Iyaz? What's that, a portmanteau of iPad and Yaz, the birth
"No... it's a singer. But close enough."
