Dynamite by Taio Cruz was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, September 4, 2010 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This was co-written by Taio Cruz with Bonnie McKee and Max Martin, and produced by Dr. Luke and Benny Blanco. The "aaayyy-oh" in the chorus was originally a placeholder. Max Martin would hash out vocal melodies by singing nonsense words that would be replaced later. On "Dynamite," they decided to leave part of it in. Benny Blanco first got the idea for the song when he was on a treadmill. The songwriter/producer recalled to Artist Direct that he "recorded it on the little Dictaphone on my brother's cell phone." This won Top Hot 100 Song, Top Digital Song and Top Pop Song at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards. The winners were chosen for their popularity, based both on chart performances and internet activity.
