Jason Derulo Early Life And Career Beginning
Jason Joel Desrouleaux came into the world on September 21st, 1989 in the city of Miramar in the state of Florida. Both of his parents were born in Haiti. His real name is actually spelled Jason Derulo, but he performs under the stage name Jason Derulo, which is a phonetic spelling of his real name.
He began making his own music at a young age, singing and writing songs, and he wrote his first song when he was eight years old. While he was still a teenager, he wrote songs for other artists, including the song “Bossy,” which was recorded by the New Orleans-based rapper Birdman.
During the early stages of Derulo’s career, he wrote songs for a number of artists, including Diddy, Danity Kane, Donnie Klang, Sean Kingston, Casses, and Lil Wayne. He did this while working at Cash Money Records as a songwriter and producer.
He improved his abilities as a singer and dancer by attending performing arts schools such as The American Musical and Dramatic Academy. He also participated in stage productions of “Ragtime” and “Smokey Joe’s Café.” Derulo was discovered by music producer J.R. Rotem after appearing on the musical television show “Showtime at the Apollo” and winning the grand prize on the season finale of 2006 for his performance there.
Rotem took him on as an artist for his record label, Beluga Heights Records, which would later become a division of Warner Bros. Records.
On August 4, 2009, Derulo released her first single, titled “Whatcha Say.” The track was produced by Rotem with contributions from Fuego, and it heavily samples the song “Hide and Seek” by Imogen Heap.
Rotem also contributed to the production of the track. The song made its first appearance on the Billboard Hot 100 chart at position 54 in late August of 2009, and it eventually reached the top spot on the chart in November.
After receiving favourable feedback for the single, he immediately began working on his debut album and on December 8, 2009, he issued his second single, titled “In My Head.” On the Billboard Hot 100, “In My Head” made its debut at position No. 63 and reached its highest position at No. 5.
On March 2, 2010, his self-titled album, “Jason Derulo,” was made available for purchase. He promoted the album by performing as the opening act for Lady Gaga’s 2009-2010 The Monster Ball Tour, which resulted in the album charting in the top ten albums in both the UK and Irish Albums Charts. “Ridin’ Solo,” the third single taken from the album, was released on April 26, 2010, and reached its highest position on the Billboard Hot 100 at number nine.
During this time period, Derulo also appeared on the song “Turn It Up” alongside Will Roush, Stat Quo, and Young Buck, and he worked with the singer Pixie Lott from the United Kingdom on her song “Coming Home.”
The second studio album by Jason Derulo, titled “Future History,” was released on September 27, 2011. Its lead single, “Don’t Wanna Go Home,” reached number one in the United Kingdom and number five in Australia respectively.
It was originally planned that he would promote the album with an eight-day tour of the United Kingdom in February 2012; however, on January 3, he broke one of his vertebraes while practising, which caused the tour to be cancelled.
After suffering an injury, he made his comeback on the March 28, 2012 episode of the American music competition show “American Idol.” During the show, he announced a new project in which he would invite fans to assist him in completing the lyrics for a new song that would be titled “Undefeated.” Coca-Cola and the television show “American Idol” worked together on the project as part of a partnership.
Fans would need to submit their own lyrics in order to participate, and once those lyrics were posted, fans would vote on which ones they liked best. In addition, Derulo gave his first performance since recovering from his injury on the eleventh season finale of “American Idol.”
In the first season of the Australian dance talent show “Everybody Dance Now,” which aired in August 2012, Derulo was one of the dance masters, along with Kelly Rowland. Despite this, the show was pulled from the air due to low ratings shortly after it had only aired four episodes.
Together with his manager Frank Harris, he is a co-owner of the record label Future History, which made its first signing in July 2012 with the Australian singer-songwriter Arlene Zelina.
On April 23, 2013, Derulo issued the single “The Other Side,” which eventually reached its highest position on the Billboard Hot 100 at number 18 overall. The following day, September 24, 2013, he released his third studio album, titled “Tattoos.”
The second single from the album, titled “Talk Dirty,” was released on July 27, 2013, and reached its highest position of No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. After that, on April 15, 2014, he released a new album that was renamed “Talk Dirty” and contained 7 songs that were previously released on the album “Tattoo” as well as 4 songs that were newly recorded.
