WBLI Summer Jam
Jason Derulo is an American R&B singer and songwriter from Miami, Florida. His music, often a mishmash of R&B, pop and dance music, has brought him widespread fame all over the US. He is also a dancer and a choreographer who has been a part of the music world since 2006. He has also collaborated and played music with some big names like Jordin Sparks. A mind blowing thirty million of his singles have been sold since 2009. Five of his tracks, In My Head, The Other Side, Talk Dirty, Whatcha Say and Ridin' Solo have even gone on to rank in the Top 5 on the charts
Derulo, a headliner at the WBLI Summer Jam, began his career as a producer for a number of artists, as well as a songwriter for the likes of Diddy, Lil Wayne and Birdman. He was then signed by Beluga Heights, which was acquired by the Warner Music Group. That led to the release of his first song in 2009. It was a big hit that sold over five million copies and earned a triple platinum certification from the RIAA. It also ranked at the top spot in the US and other countries like New Zealand. He has released four albums so far, with his latest being 2014's Talk Dirty.
