I am loving this song for one thing and one thing only: the chorus. It’s so catchy! Completely constructed for radio airplay, which is why it’s so catchy. I never really LOVED “Break Your Heart” - I thought it was an ok song & it still managed to go #1 on the Hot 100. I think “Dynamite” is a way better song and yet it probably won’t make it to #1 on the Hot 100. My only problem with “Dynamite” is that the verses are IDENTICAL to David Guetta’s “Sexy Bitch” - listen to them and you will hear it. The song was produced by Dr. Luke & Benny Blanco & serves as the 2nd single from Cruz’s sophomore album, Rokstarr.
“Mike and I were friends. As a producer, it is hard for me to be close to the people I work with. For some reason I stay close friends to the women I have recorded (no hanky-panky) however the guys…I think they treat me like I am a drill Sargent in the Army. Mike was not like that. He was always warm and friendly . Out of the whole band, I was most close to him. I like to think that when we die our spirits just move on to a better place. I imagine Mike and Layne still playing music but now with people like Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon etc. I will think of Mike and miss him until the day I die. After that I will produce him again!” - Dave Jerden (AIC Producer)
