"Come On Girl" is a song written and produced by Taio Cruz, featuring a guest vocal from singer Luciana. It is the third single from his album Departure. It was his biggest hit to date, peaking at number five in the UK Singles Chart, outperforming both of his previous top 30 UK hits, until his 2009 hit "Break Your Heart", which peaked at number one. The single features the B-side "Can't Say Go", written and produced by Cruz himself.

Background[edit]

Speaking in February 2008 to R&B writer Pete Lewis of the award-winning Blues & Soul, Cruz explained the reasons for the single's club influence: "Because lately I've been going to clubs where they play a lot of electro, it's definitely got a bit of that vibe in there. But, while some people might associate that driving beat with house and dance music, I've also noticed how Timbaland's latest productions on Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears have these new beats with a four-to-the-floor drum pattern too. So, because I think that's where R&B is going, I basically went in that direction while adding an English techno edge that the Americans wouldn't even know about."[1] The music video features Cruz in a very slow car chase. Luciana also makes a guest appearance in the video.[2]
