Biography

With an effortless blend of a silky smooth voice with the spice only the street can provide, the music of Taitano has developed into a universal sound that will make its way into clubs, cars and most definitely bedrooms.

"I like to sing grown folks music," Taitano says. "I been doing this since I was born so it’s just a part of me." Although the current trend is to jump into hip-hop and look for the one-hit magic, Taitano is focused on making sure crooners keep their place in real R & B music. His first single Can’t Let It Go showcases his soulful sound, highlights his wisdom in life and relationships through his writing, and his depth of ability. "I’m all about making relatable soulful music that comes from the heart." Don’t mistake Taitano’s sound for whiny, sappy-type music though. Although the beats are on the ballad side, his lyrics have a healthy dose of street that keeps his sound edgy and his message with a bit of a bite, which is understandable from the road he’s traveled to get to this point.

"I was born in Guam into a military family. We moved to Oklahoma and that’s where I fell in love with R & B music. Even though we traveled a lot, I connected with R & B and always will." Taitano’s track Game Over is a sizzling reminder that while romance is good, not everything goes as planned and sometimes tough choices have to be made. Game Over is one of the best examples of how a peanut butter-smooth dish can have a venomous bite. "I write everything from what I know and what I go through," Taitano says. "I was in love with this girl. I thought she was the one. We were together for awhile, talking about a future, marriage, kids, the whole nine yards. Next thing I know, she leaves me for another guy out of nowhere. She still thought she could get me back, so I told her through this song that the game was over."

Taitano’s song writing uses simple words, but expresses a depth of feeling that young and old can relate to because it is so honest. "I’m not gonna use any difficult words or else there would be a lot of people who wouldn’t know what I’m talking about. I may use simple words, but its not about what you say, its about how you say it." Many artist spend years trying to find themselves in their music, Taitano doesn’t have that problem — he just needs an opportunity to get his skills showcased on a broader scale. "I’ve always performed at local spots," he says. "And every time people love it. And that’s really all I want. I know that if I get a chance to let people hear what I can do, they’ll love me."

Taitano is currently working on a variety of projects and looking forward to big things this year. "Hopefully, this year will be a big one. I have to pay my dues and continue to work. My focus is establishing a growing fan base, doing that that I feel certain that my CD will be successful. Possibly better opportunities may present itself. I know it will take some time, but that’s my goal."

Lyrics

Can't let it go

Written By: TaitanO

Now it might sound crazy
even though you played me
and I have moved on with my lady
I might regret what I'm saying
but this is in inside me
and I just cant deny it
I just cant let it go.
Even though we had problems
and we never solved them
I think of you often
Its starting to be a problem
no matter how much I try
This feeling just wont die
I just cant let it go.

I know its been some time since I've seen your face
always knew that we had something that could not be replaced but
I had to move along I had to keep it strong
had to cope with the fact that you the one that did me wrong
Its when I find someone that treats me like I'm everything
so I did the same and gave that woman everything
I thought that it was done that's why I moved it on
but then i saw your face and then those feeling came all over.

What did she do to me
I don't even know
Why is it killing it me
I don't even know
Tell me what we should do
I don't even know
Well Tai what do you know
Just cant let it go Yeah

Now it might sound crazy
even though you played me
and I have moved on with my lady
I might regret what I'm saying
but this is in inside me
and I just cant deny it
I just cant let it go.
Even though we had problems
and we never solved them
I think of you often
Its starting to be a problem
no matter how much I try
This feeling just wont die
I just cant let it go.

I toss and turn in bed at night because I just cant sleep
I cant believe I'm letting this get the best of me
damn girl you did me wrong kept me in pain so long
I keep telling myself that should be the reason
That I should let you go and fail that you even exist
Then I have flashbacks of all the moments we kissed
Then what the hell is wrong I just cant keep it strong
If this keep going me and mine aint going to last long.

What did she do to me
I don't even know
Why is it killing it me
I don't even know
Tell me what we should do
I don't even know
Well Tai what do you know
Just cant let it go Yeah

Now it might sound crazy
even though you played me
and I have moved on with my lady
I might regret what I'm saying
but this is in inside me
and I just cant deny it
I just cant let it go.
Even though we had problems
and we never solved them
I think of you often
Its starting to be a problem
no matter how much I try
This feeling just wont die
I just cant let it go.

Game Over

Written By: TaitanO

Verse:

How dare you go do me wrong had me
Had me thinking what we had was strong
Could have sworn that you were the one
But this whole time you lead me on
Can’t believe that I was such a fool
Would have done most anything for you
The way you played girl me it wasn’t cool
So I guess to hell with you

Hook:

At first you had me thinking that it was gravy
I would be your man and you would be my baby
Then you ditch me had me going all crazy
Why you do it baby why you leave me baby
I was willing to give you everything
For you happiness I’d do anything
You open my eyes and you helped me see
You so stupid baby game over baby

Verse:

I could tell that things was starting to change
Cause when I was up in it
it didn’t feel the same
sometimes I feel like I’m the one blame
but you still didn’t have to run no game
Now its too late to apologize
Aint got no time to hear your foolish lies
I got to delete you out my life
Baby it’s your loss but still I wonder why

Hook:

At first you had me thinking that it was gravy
I would be your man and you would be my baby
Then you ditch me had me going all crazy
Why you do it baby why you leave me baby

For you happiness I’d do anything
You open my eyes and you helped me see
You so stupid baby game over baby

Verse:

Don’t think that you are going to have another chance at Lo
Cause Im moving on
Moving on babe good bye babe so long babe
I think its best that you get your stuff together up and go
Cause its over babe
Move on babe its over babe game over babe

Hook: x2

At first you had me thinking that it was gravy

Then you ditch me had me going all crazy
Why you do it baby why you leave me baby

You open my eyes and you helped me see
You so stupid baby game over baby

Call on me

Written By: TaitanO

Verse:

Don’t understand if he does you wrong,
why you stayed with him so long
And plus he keeps on with his creepin round.
You should tell him get gone.
See what you need in your life is a man
who would never back out of your plans
And if you goin through so real tough times,
he’ll be there to hold your hand

Hook:

You don’t have to be alone.
You don’t have to feel like you’re on your own
All you gotta do is pick up the phone.
Call on me when you’re in need
You know that he aint the one.
Why don’t you just tell him to get gone
And girl when you ready to move on
girl you need to be with me

Verse:

The way your man is actin so wack.
No one should ever treat you like that
And since you know you can do better,
just up and leave his dumb ass
And if you think maybe we meant to be,
hop in the ride and roll with me
And if you getting nervous baby don’t
cause I ain’t never gon leave. No no baby

Hook:

You don’t have to be alone.
You don’t have to feel like you’re on your own
All you gotta do is pick up the phone.
Call on me when you’re in need
You know that he aint the one.
Why don’t you just tell him to get gone
And girl when you ready to move on
girl you need to be with me

Bridge:

Love me in a special way
What more can I say
Love me now
Love me in a special way
What more can I say
Love me now

Hook:

You don’t have to be alone.
You don’t have to feel like you’re on your own
All you gotta do is pick up the phone.
Call on me when you’re in need
You know that he aint the one.
Why don’t you just tell him to get gone
And girl when you ready to move on

So baby take all of your clothes and hop up in the bed

Ill have screaming like my number one fan
So tonight were gonna get it poppin
