The latest chapter in the continuing phenomenal success of Jason Derulo’s ‘Tattoos’ album starts with the June 30 release of the single ‘Wiggle’ on Beluga Heights/Warner Bros Records.
Initially featured on the new Deluxe Edition format ‘Tattoos’, the track features a very special guest appearance courtesy of the inimitable Snoop Dogg.
Produced by Wallpaper along with Axident, ‘Wiggle’ is a cheeky, immediately memorable, heavily rhythmic groove in which Jason Derulo’s famous vocal gift is complemented by a typically smooth rap by Snoop Dogg.
“It’s one of the most fun records you’ve ever heard in your life,” said Jason. “It’s the most excited I’ve been about a song I wrote in my entire career.” The accompanying video will be launched soon, but a taster is already available with the official behind the scenes video which can be seen HERE.
‘Wiggle’ has already been praised in the States, notably by Perez Hilton who commented: “It’s insanely addictive! The song is so sexy! A big hit!”
Jason Derulo’s recent single ‘Trumpets’ passed 450,000 UK sales, which together with the phenomenal sales of ‘Talk Dirty’ (#1 with 530,000 sales to date) and ‘The Other Side’ (#2, 400,000 sales), means that the sales of tracks taken from his current album ‘Tattoos’ has now exceeded a million.
Jason Derulo has become a major chart sensation since he first burst onto the scene in 2009 with his debut track ‘Whatcha Say’. After three chart-topping singles (‘In My Head’, ‘Don’t Wanna Go Home’ and ‘Talk Dirty’) and a further five Top 5 hits, he has now sold over 3.5 million singles in the UK alone. His continuing success on these shores is also demonstrated by his Top 10 airplay hits, three Top 10 albums which are approaching sales of 500,000 and 1.4 million unique UK fans across Twitter and Facebook.
His superstar status is also soaring internationally too. His recent singles have hit the upper reaches of the charts across Europe, at home in the States, as well as Canada, Australia and New Zealand with worldwide sales now standing at 26 million singles and 1.2 million albums. His YouTube channel has been viewed 880 million times, while his combined Facebook and Twitter following now exceeds an audience of 17 million people.
