Despite being relatively new on the block, Ryan De La Cruz is already creating waves. Now he shares his latest video for new single ‘Know About Me’. Cruising around the city, we see Ryan and his ‘boys’ getting up to all kinds of mischief, with some seriously impressive back seat harmonies.

After receiving support from Radio 1Xtra and Radar Radio, the single is already gaining momentum. The video was directed by Bouha Kazmi, the man behind Zayn’s ‘Pillow Talk’ video. Kazmi apparently jumped on board after hearing about the concept behind the track and video. “We spent an afternoon rehearsing the roles and experimenting with different character nuances, but on a whole he sort of naturally embodies each of the characters in real life” Kazmi said about De La Cruz’ acting skills. “Ryan is very talented, sharp and hilarious to be around. Within the first few minutes of listening to him talk, gauging his personality and range, I quickly realised we were onto something special”.
