Jason Derulo Promises Honest and Emotional Album
Radio.com sat down with Derulo to get the inside scoop of what fans can expect from his new release. He was rather forthcoming with how forthcoming his album was. "I'm very, very honest on this album," he told Radio.com. "I'm very open. Some songs on the album are difficult to listen to at times. There is a very emotional part of the album."
After a neck injury that forced him to take a break from music, Derulo is thankful for the success of "The Other Side." "Especially after the rough year that I had, to have this comeback was really crazy. To hear my stuff on the radio was like hearing my stuff on the radio for the first time all over again," he confessed. "Same butterflies, same nerves. I think that's the human element of this whole thing. Having that feeling keeps me grounded, keeps me humble and keeps me pushing further."
Derulo is pushing himself further on his forthcoming release. He had written over 300 songs and had to narrow them down to 12, a process that was difficult. "I wanted to be sure that the album was a roller coaster ride, that every single song was totally different from the last," he explained. "My first album was written when I was 19-years-old. I wanted to be sure this album was far different from that one, to make sure that the growth was present. I'm 23 now. I really wanted this album to be a direct representation of who I am. I didn't want to hide anything. This album, I wanted to tell a story." He also made a surprising revelation.
