Mackenzie Sol has released the video for his latest track Taken.

Written by iconic songwriter Diane Warren and produced by Steve Manovski (Sigala, Nile Rodgers, Noah Cyrus, Calum Scott), Taken comes off the back of Sol’s UK national tour with Bars and Melody.


Taken was originally recorded by Nathan Sykes, formerly of The Wanted, as a B-side for the deluxe edition of his debut solo album Unfinished Business. Sol has put his own spin on the track giving it a more uptempo and infectious feel.

Diane Warren said, “When I heard Mackenzie I knew he would be the one to make ‘Taken’ a smash and I know I will be proven right.”

Warren has written hits for some of the biggest stars in the world including Rihanna and Aerosmith.

Only 17-years-old, Sol made his worldwide debut with upbeat pop track Laugh. The response to the track led to content deals with Awesomeness TV and and a correspondent stint for Radio Disney. Sol was also a headlining act on the 2017 Boys of Summer U.S. tour.

Originally from Northern England, Sol now resides in Los Angeles. He auditioned for The X-Factor in the Uk when he was just four years old. After that he studied at the world-renowned Royal Ballet School in London.

The video for his viral hit My Name picked up more than 6 million YouTube views and 340,000 streams on Spotify despite Sol having no traditional promotion. He is now signed with a U.S. based management team and joined the roster of The Hana Road Music Group.
