Derulo promises his fans an exciting year
JASON Derulo will release a new album this year and has promised his fans he has a number of exciting numbers in the offing.
The 27-year-old US singer – whose last release was 2015’s Everything is 4 – is this year preparing for the release of his fifth album, which he has been working on at his home, and he has promised fans a number of exciting collaborations.
He told Billboard magazine: “I’ve been recording at my house, and it has been a much more comfortable experience.
“I’m excited to share with you all my ups, downs, highs and my lows.
“Also, I got to work with a lot of amazing artists. This year is ours.
“I’m looking forward to a fresh start (in the new year). There was so much negativity in the world in 2016. We can start fresh, putting love first.
“We can’t let our nation be run by racism, greed and abhorrence.”
However, Jason revealed he also planned to take some time out for himself this year, following his split from Daphne Joy in August after six months of dating.
He said: “Life is short, so I want to experience as much as I can before and share those moments with the people I love.”
Meanwhile, it was likely that one of the collaborators on Jason’s new album could be Scottish DJ Calvin Harris.
He previously revealed the pair were keen to work on music together once they could find some time in both of their busy schedules.
Derulo said: “We’ve been in contact and Calvin and I are interested in working together. However, it’s just finding the right time and the right song. We both have busy schedules.”
The pair were introduced by their mutual friend DJ Hardwell, who has previously worked with both the artists on separate occasions.
Derulo said: “Hardwell and I did Follow Me, and I love the whole EDM (electronic dance music) vibe.”
