Get to Know Iyaz, Justin Bieber's New Tour Mate
Oops. Guess the cat's out of the bag now.
Not familiar with Iyaz's music? Then here's the deets on this emerging star. Sean Kingston, who's also on tour with the Biebs this summer, discovered Iyaz on MySpace. His single "Replay" was released in the Spring, and his full album will come out in August.
He's been buds with Bieber for a little while now. "The VMAs were over and everyone was leaving to go outside and he's short, so everyone starting to crowd around and coming in on him," Iyaz explains about his first run-in with JB at the MTV Video Music Awards last year.
"I'm not much taller than him, but I just started pushing people off him," he says. "I didn't even know who these people were. And after that we've just been cool. We talk all the time."
As for other celeb pals? He can name drop Miley Cyrus, too. Iyaz will appear on an August episode of Hannah Montana, and recorded a song with the Disney queen that will be released around the same time as the show's finale.
