If anybody knows what sounds like it's a hit, it's hitmaker Pharrell Williams. The latest case in point? Miami-bred singer Cris Cab, who has already racked up a million views of his videos (including a recent cover of Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow") on Youtube and just released his first EP, Forward, on June 7.

"I knew from the moment he grabbed his guitar and sang that first note that with the proper nurturing, that kid had it. He is merely warming up.”" says Williams. "This kid is just getting started."

The clip grabs footage from Cris' Miami tour kickoff earlier this month and shows just what Williams is talking about. For more on Cris, visit
