Cruz recently signed up with Bieber, Usher and Carly Rae Jepsen’s manager Scooter Braun and the track boasts an impressive producer in the form of Rodney Jerkins, who’s worked with basically anyone who’s anyone, including Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Beyoncé, Destiny’s Child and Britney Spears.
