Jason Derulo Thinks That 'Everything Is 4' Is His Greatest Work
"I have so many different dimensions as a person, as we all do," he tells Radio.com. "This album is a package. It's not about one tune. It's about taking the whole entire masterpiece if you will."
Derulo compares the album to a painting, explaining that you wouldn't just take a chunk off the left corner to represent the painting, you instead look at the entire work as a whole.
"During the writing of this album I wanted to make sure that I was being true to myself and explaining the stories of my life and in turn I would be explaining the stories of other people's lives," he says. "You can find yourself in my stories because we go through very similar things."
Tracks like current single "Want To Want Me" and the accompanying music video for the song further describe these stories. "It's the age old story of wanting the person that you want so badly to want you back the same way. It's told in a very sexy way," he says with a smile. "It's very steamy, and it talks about how that obsession feels very vividly."
For his 11-track album, Derulo invited guests along as well, including Meghan Trainor on "Painkiller." A friend with "an amazing spirit," Derulo says the "All About That Bass" singer exemplifies the concept of being humble. Read more here.
