Taylor Dayne and her unit at Bentley Bay

Pop singer-songwriter Taylor Dayne just paid $1.2 million for a condo at Bentley Bay in South Beach.

Dayne, best known for her hit song “Tell It to My Heart,” bought unit 1602, a two-bedroom plus den, three-bathroom bayfront condo at 520 West Avenue.

Samuel R. Picciotto, who paid $645,000 for the condo in 2011, sold the 1,929-square-foot unit to Dayne for about $622 per foot. The unit hit the market in April, with three price reductions to $1.3 million in August, according to Realtor.com.

Oliver Davis of the Live Work Play Miami Group at Keller Williams represented the seller. Joonok (June) Yang of Miami Investment Realty brought the buyer.

The condo is outfitted with marble floors, floor-to-ceiling windows with electric blinds, and has a terrace that runs the length of the unit, according to the listing.

Born Leslie Wunderman, Dayne’s career has spanned three decades and has included 17 hit singles, three Grammy Nominations, an American Music Award, and over 75 million albums sold worldwide. Among her other hit singles are “Love Will Lead You Back”, “Prove Your Love”, and “I’ll Always Love You.” Dayne, also an actress, recently kicked off her 30th Anniversary Tour in the Design District last month as part of Gloria and Emilio Estefan’s “Palm Court Performance Series.”

Built in 2004, the two-tower Bentley Bay was developed by Ricardo Olivier. It underwent $1.5 million in renovations in 2016.

Nearby, at Fifth Street and Alton Road, Russell Galbut’s Crescent Heights is proposing a controversial residential tower.  That project will go before the Miami Beach commission on Wednesday.
