Iyaz inspired by Miley

Pop star Iyaz admits to loving Miley Cyrus' music and writes his chart topping songs on ''spur of the moment.''
Great deals on musical instruments

Iyaz has said that is inspired by Miley Cyrus.

The 'Solo' singer has said that he enjoys listening to the `Hannah Montana' star's music and a whole host of other pop stars' songs.

When questioned about his musical taste , he told ilikemusic.com: "Miley Cyrus. I like her song 'When I Look At You'. A load of Drake. I'm still listening to some Michael Jackson stuff. Chris Brown. Lady GaGa, of course. A little bit of everything. Green Day for sure."

Iyaz- whose real name Keidran Jones- had instant chart success with his first single 'Reply' going top five in both the UK and US - also admitted he never sits down to write songs and most of his material is penned on the "spur of the moment".

He added: "Most of my songs are spur of the moment stuff. I have to be in the mood. Or if I do have a little idea I'll record it onto my phone and wait until I get back into the studio."

The singer was spotted by music maker Sean Kingston over MySpace and still takes tips from the 'Beautiful Girls' star.

He said: "Sleep when you die. No-one's going to work harder for you than yourself, so you've got to always go out there and put your best foot forward at all times."
