Life and career

He was born into a musical family and grew up on Tortola in the British Virgin Islands.[2] Iyaz studied digital recording in college and recorded music. Island Girls found radio success in the Caribbean.[2] Sean Kingston found Iyaz through his MySpace page back in 2008. When Iyaz first saw the messages from Kingston in his MySpace inbox, he didn't believe it was really him and ignored the messages. But after receiving three more messages, Iyaz thought he'd better respond [3] and later signed a recording contract with Time Is Money/Beluga Heights, a record label owned by Warner Bros. Records. Kingston introduced him to producer J. R. Rotem. "Replay" was released as his first single. It received No. 1 on the iTunes British Download Chart.[2] He also took part in "We Are The World 25 for Haiti."
