Yesterday on April 11, 2014, OK! Magazine hosted Jason Derulo's "Talk Dirty" album release party. The intimate party was held at meatpacking hotspot Up & Down. Guests were able to enjoy Jason Derulo branded red hot candy and cell phone cases. Waitresses served guests the Red Bull infused "Wiggle" cocktail named after one of his songs on his album.
Derulo's "Talk Dirty" album is scheduled to be released this Tuesday April 15, 2014 on Warner Bros. Records. Derulo's track "Talk Dirty" featuring 2 Chainz has been a smash and is all over the radio and the clubs. On April 7, Jason hosted a similar party and his girlfriend Jordin Sparks joined him at 1OAK in West Hollywood.
Derulo arrived around to Up & Down last night around 10 p.m.. DJ Papo was on the turntables getting the crowd hyped up for Jason. Jason took time to say a few words about each track. He told guests during the listening, "It was not me trying to go in the studio and make a hit record. It was not me trying to make a hit album, it was literally me trying to get out of this dark space that I was in. You know what I'm saying? I was supposed to go on this world tour and it got canceled because of the injury, so I turned to music like I always do and in turn music saved my life again."
Jason continued, "The album is called 'Talk Dirty' and I think this album will display who I am as a human being because it was for selfish reasons that I made the album in the first place, it was not for anybody else ... me just wanting to get myself out of the rut I was in. So you will get to know the other part of Jason Derulo that you've never met before. I have to say that I'm excited to play for you the part of the album that you've never heard before. You've heard a few records off the album of course: 'The Other Side,' 'Mary me,' 'Talk Dirty.' Those records are all successful records because of the amazing fans across the world."
We really enjoyed listening to Jason's album. It is full of club bangers and great guest features. "Wiggle" featuring Snoop is definitely a highlight. We also really liked "Vertigo" which is sweet duet between Jason and Jordin. He started ad libbing to it live and throughout the listening he was dancing up a storm. Notables that we spotted included NUE Agency CEO Jesse Kirshbaum, writer and social media expert Natalie Zfat, Atlantic Records artist Kendall, Aton Ben-Horin (Director of Global A&R at Warner Music Group) and Jeff Fenster (Executive Vice President of A&R at Warner Bros. Records).
