Iyaz Hopes to Collaborate With Green Day on Debut
With his hit single ‘Replay’ still topping the charts, Iyaz has been enjoying his newfound success. Recently, the singer — discovered by Sean Kingston — had the opportunity to go to his first VMAs, where he met the New Boyz, Katy Perry and more. But when the BoomBox asked Iyaz who he was most excited to meet that night, his response was a bit unexpected.
“Green Day,” Iyaz said. “They were standing right in front of me on the red carpet. I’m trying to get them on the album.”
The album Iyaz mentioned was his upcoming debut, scheduled for a 2010 release. Iyaz’s island pop is vastly different from Green Day’s alternative rock, but Iyaz remained confident in his plans. “It most definitely will happen,” Iyaz insisted. “Most definitely will happen. I want to switch it up. I want them to go island, and I’m gonna go Green Day.”
We hope Billy Joe Armstrong and Co. are listening. What do you think?
