In the span of 18 months, Jason Derulo has gone from being a songwriter behind hits for Lil Wayne, R&B singer Cassie and girl-group Danity Kane to topping the pop charts all over the world, himself.
With the No. 1 hit “Whatcha Say” and Top 10 spots with “Ridin’ Solo” and “In My Head” to his credit, the Miami native has been working hard to please his now-growing international audience.
“I feel like this is an incredible beginning for me,” he says. “This has been one of the most special years of my life.”
After opening slots on world tours for Black Eyed Peas and Lady Gaga, Derulo says he’s ready to take the spotlight with his new tour. By the way, he just celebrated his 21st birthday. But Derulo’s plans seem to be less about finally being able to get into bars and more about making his headlining show into an event.
“It’s exciting to build something from the ground up. It’s going to be totally different than any of my shows before,”?he says. “An hour-and-a-half of my music and high energy dance. It’s an extravaganza. And it’s constantly changing with every city I go to.”
