Sure, there's been a slew of dudes cranking out Euro-style, electro-tinged pop as of late, including Jay Sean, Iyaz, Jason Derulo, Taio Cruz and Travis Garland, but that doesn't mean there's not room for one more!
Enter Tino Coury, a 21-year-old Pittsburgh native who is blowing up the pop scene with his debut Top 40 single, "Diary," and it's sexed-up video. The clip has already garnered over 600,000 views on YouTube and the track has hit No. 16 on the Billboard Hot Dance Play chart.
"Shooting the video for 'Diary' was an experience I'll never forget!" Coury tells UsMagazine.com. "Watching how the story came together on screen was so exciting. From all the long nights working in the studio, to ending up in a huge house in Beverly Hills actually making the video, was just a dream come true. I had such a great time working with [director] Roman White. He's the best! He and I really clicked and had the chemistry you need to make an amazing video. His crew was incredible too."
So who's Coury's mysterious video vixen? "She was actually a friend of a friend," the single Coury tells Us. "I called her up one day before the shoot and she ended up being a perfect fit!"
