R&B artist Iyaz performs his reggae-infused hits at Wigley's Bar & Grill on March 12.

Keidran Jones, better known by his stage name Iyaz, stops by Abbotsford this month on his first Canadian tour.

The 23-year-old singer from the British Virgin Islands released his multi-platinum single Replay in July 2009, which soared to No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 1 in the United Kingdom and Australia. His debut album by the same name featured other hits like Solo and So Big.

Hip-hop artist Sean Kingston discovered Iyaz through his MySpace page in 2008 and recommended him to producer J.R. Rotem, who has worked with artists like 50 Cent, Britney Spears and Rick Ross. Iyaz later signed a recording contract with Time is Money/Beluga Heights, a new label partnership with Warner Bros. Records.

Iyaz will release his sophomore album this summer featuring his new song Last Forever with Grammy-winning producer and DJ David Guetta.

He performs his reggae-infused R&B hits at Wigley Bar & Grill, 3600 Townline Rd., on March 12. Joining him on stage will be B.C. hip-hop artist Zane Gold and Misha Q.

Tickets are $25 at Wigley’s Bar & Grill, Airfare Lounge or the Fido store at 32330 South Fraser Way. Call the ticket hotline at 604-832-4007 for more details.
