Jason Derulo Drops New Song ‘Colors’ Inspired by 2018 FIFA World Cup


Once again, the music and sports have merged, with U.S. pop star Jason Derulo releasing the Coca-Cola-sponsored anthem for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, “Colors,” via Warner Bros. Records.

“Colors,» written by Derulo, showcases the excitement that greets the arrival of the world’s biggest soccer tournament. “Through my years of travel, I’ve been able to see the beauty in our cultural differences and I wrote ‘Colors’ to celebrate that diversity and be a part of the amazing energy that sports fans around the world give to their teams,” Jason Derulo says in a press statement.

Ricardo Fort, vice president of Global Sports Partnerships at The Coca-Cola Company, adds, “We believe that music and soccer are intrinsically linked by the passions they evoke. We are excited to welcome Jason to the team, and can’t wait to bring this upbeat anthem to the world ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup™.”

This year, the 2018 FIFA World Cup will take place in Russia from June 14 to July 15. Listen to “Colors” below.

Jason Derulo’s “Tip Toe” Video Is A Sexy, Choreography-Filled Adventure


Jason Derulo returned with a hook-filled banger called “Tip Toe” in early November. The third single (after “Swalla” and “If I’m Lucky”) from his upcoming 777 album got off to a flying start, racking up close to 25 million streams on Spotify in its first month. Those numbers will only grow with the arrival of the sexy, choreography-filled video. The clip begins with the 28-year-old dancing in a jungle (I’m pretty sure they used the same set as Pitbull’s recent video) surrounded by women in leopard costumes.

From there, our hero heads to Japan where he turns up with a group of geishas. That’s when French Montana appears for a cameo and the collaborators pose next to near-naked women in body paint. It will be interesting to see if the visual is as warmly embraced as “Swalla,” which YouTube recently named the 8th most-watched music video of 2017. It certainly has all the right elements. Jason will, no doubt, perform the song on his 777 World Tour, which kicks off in Barcelona on February 26, 2018. Watch up top.

Jason Derulo & French Montana’s “Tip Toe” Is Insanely Danceable


Jason Derulo continues his club takeover on the French Montana-assisted “Tip Toe.” Released today (November 10), the track is the third single from his forthcoming album, 777, and it is another fierce dance floor anthem. Unlike his introspective musings on “If I’m Lucky,” his latest is all about getting up close and personal with a lover.

“Hold tight when you tiptoe. Shake something when you tiptoe. Don’t brace when you push that back. Left, right, do it just like that,” he commands on the infectious chorus. French Montana’s verse feels a little stale, but it fits nicely over the simmering production. Although the release is not as instant as “Talk Dirty” or “Wiggle,” the hitmaker likely has another club hit on his hands.

“Tip Toe” follows “Swalla” and “If I’m Lucky” from the LP. The project’s lead single struggled to take off on pop radio, but it became a solid streaming hit. Despite receiving a Michael Jackson-inspired music video, the second single floundered on the charts. Hopefully his latest offering will turn things around. Listen to Jason’s latest fiery bop below!

Jason Derulo Dances Through Heartache In His “If I’m Lucky” Lyric Video


Jason Derulo is dancing through heartbreak in the lyric video for “If I’m Lucky.” Released today (September 1), it’s the second single from his forthcoming album 777, and it features writing from Justin Tranter and production from Mattman & Robin. The track finds the hitmaker looking for closure in a relationship where the feelings are still raw. “Who are you to say, that I didn’t love you?” he asks a former lover over a racing beat.

In an interview with Billboard, the 27-year-old explained that although the song was inspired by a breakup it was anything but a heartbroken anthem. “It comes from past relationships that you think most things are good, but for some reason or another, things just don’t work out,” he explained adding that “Hopefully that situation can pan out in the next life.” Pulling inspiration from Michael Jackson, the accompanying lyric video sees Derulo giving his best zombie impression as he and a horde of dancers deliver tight choreography in a large studio. Between his unsettling blue contacts and some intense makeup applications, the video is simultaneously fierce and disturbing.

“If I’m Lucky” follows “Swalla,” which featured Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolls $ign. The Caribbean-infused banger struggled at pop radio but became a streaming sensation and party staple. With a more traditional pop track on his hands, it is clear that Jason’s new album will be an eclectic mix. Check out the track’s dance-heavy lyric video up top.
