"Replay" is the debut single from British Virgin Islands recording artist Iyaz. It is the first single released from his debut album of the same name, which was released on 8 June 2010.

The single entered at the top of the UK Singles Chart, where it remained for three weeks until it was knocked off the summit by "Fireflies" by Owl City. Internationally, the single also topped the charts in Australia, Israel and Switzerland and peaked within the top ten of the charts in many countries, including Finland, France and the United States. The combined figure of the official music video and prequel video on YouTube is about 119 million views.

Song information[edit]

Iyaz co-wrote "Replay" with fellow singers and labelmates Sean Kingston (left) and Jason Derulo (right).

Beluga Heights label-mates Sean Kingston, Jason Derülo, and Iyaz himself all co-wrote the song together, along with label owner J.R. Rotem and songwriting duo Planet VI (known as Rock City at the time). Rotem also produced the track and credits himself at the beginning of the song via his signature "J-J-J-J-J.R." sample. The remix version with Flo Rida however, says, "BELUGA HEIGHTS" like in Jason Derülo's second single, "In my Head". Also, this is the second song that Jason Derülo, Kingston, and Rotem have co-written together, the first being Derülo's own debut single, "Whatcha Say".

Music video[edit]

The official music video features Iyaz wearing headphones and listening to music on a beach. Other various scenes feature Iyaz singing with a background of the British Virgin Islands' flag, and partying on the beach during the night. The video was directed by Rock Jacobs. A prequel video was also filmed that features the full-length beach scenes with Iyaz and his love interest.
