BHbeat intervews Jason Derulo.
Derulo will embark upon his biggest ever UK tour when he returns to the UK in February. The eight-date arena tour will include his largest London show to date when he plays Wembley Arena on 1st March, plus a night at the BIC Windsor Hall on Tuesday 28th February 2012.
Having recently scored his second UK #1 single with ‘Don’t Wanna Go Home’ and another Top 10 hit with the follow-up single ‘It Girl’, Jason Derulo’s eagerly anticipated second album ‘Future History’ is out now.
Both ‘Don’t Wanna Go Home’ and ‘It Girl’ feature on ‘Future History’ which represents a definitive progression in Jason Derulo’s sound with greater eclectism than ever before with the production expertise of The Fliptones, J.R. Rotem, Frank E, The Dream and Eman.
On this album I just wanted to be me, explains Derulo, who wrote all of the songs on the album either by himself or in collaboration with top names like Kara Dioguardi, The Dream and Claude Kelly. The new batch of songs reflects a newfound maturity in Derulos personality as well as the music that hes eager to share with his fans. I was 19 before and now Im 21 and Ive really kind of found myself, he says. So you can hear a whole new person, a new being almost.
Jason Derulo is now established as one of the world’s biggest pop stars having sold 17 million singles globally (1.8 million of which were in the UK) and a million copies of his debut album.
