Jason Derulo ‘wiggles’ his way to the top with new album

April 29, 2014

When 24-year old Miami Native Jason Derulo released his new album “Talk Dirty” on April 15th, there was at least three songs that were already ingrained in the world’s minds. His singles “Talk Dirty”, ‘The Other Side”, and “Marry Me” are the ear-worms that have made their marks on the charts in the past couple months due to their catchy beats and lyrics. The album tracklist is as follows:

1. Talk Dirty (Feat. 2 Chainz)
2. Wiggle (Feat. Snoop Dogg)
3. Trumpets
4. Bubblegum (Feat. Tyga)
5. Vertigo (Feat. Jordin Sparks)
6. Kama Sutra (Feat. Kid Ink)
7. Zipper
8. The Other Side
9. With The Lights On
10. Stupid Love
11. Marry Me

The songs “Wiggle” and “Zipper” are nothing but sexual. Even though every track is sprinkled with this vibe, these songs made me a little uncomfortable. The same sound was present on “Bubblegum”, although the beat is similar to “Talk Dirty”. “Trumpets” is romantic and cute, showcasing Derulo’s range of vocal abilities when he reaches the high notes in the chorus. “Vertigo” is noticeably the only slow song, but it seems as if Derulo’s voice was made for ballads with the song’s honest lyrics and nice blend of melodies from Jordin Sparks. “Kama Sutra” and “With The Lights On” are club songs in every sense of the word, but Kid Ink’s voice almost matches Derulo’s, making it a nice addition since the contrast between the two voices wasn’t so great. “Stupid Love” is slower than most of the other tracks, but it’s a necessary variation showing that Derulo is capable of changing his music with ease.


Derulo released his third studio album, Tattoos, in 2013. With his EP consisting of only 5 songs at first, this new re-release is available only in the United States and features six new songs. “Talk Dirty” debuted at number 4 and has maintained that spot on the Billboard 200 and beat his first album titled, “Jason Derulo”, in sales by 1,000 copies.

If you’ve listened to the album already or are thinking about giving it a try, tweet us your thoughts @weknowthedj.
