New Song: Jason Derulo – ‘The Other Side’ {New Single}

Jason Derulo journey’s to ‘The Other Side’ on the lead single from his third studio album.

The high-octane cut was premiered on the On Air With Ryan Seacrest show moments ago. Yet, as ever, That Grape Juice has your first online listen.

Take a trip with 22-year-old Derulo after the jump…

As an act many are eager to bracket into R&B territory, Derulo’s outright embrace of Urban-EDM-Pop is likely to see his name greeted with both glee and groans in equal measure. Put simply, ‘The Other Side’ sees the singer in familiar musical territory; as such, if one enjoyed his output previously, they’ll likely like this. If they didn’t, his latest offering is one he could have kept (along with the others).

What do we think of the cut? While we’ve yet to hear a Derulo song that moved our spirit (this included, though ‘In My Head’ and ‘Breathing’ came close), we continue to applaud his ballsy-ness for serving up consistent Pop product in a market that almost demands that men of his hue can only do Urban to be taken seriously – critically and commercially.

 Your thoughts?

    Hideous. I expected it to be awful, and he didn’t disappoint. He’s like a faux-decaf black male version of Ke$ha.

    LOL! Stop acting like Jason went outside of the box by doing this now very stale brand of EDM trash. Usher, Neyo, LMFAO, Taio Cruz, Flo Rida and Chris Brown all desperately did it too. Derulo is hardly being a-typical or venturing to the left with this unlistenable nonsense. He’s just following a trend, but apparently missed the memo that many are jumping off this euro-dance train now.

    Usher Do it Better 🙄

    Jason must not have much expectation for himself and his fans, because his “get drunk” lyric is really lame and overused. It’s like he doesn’t try to write anything else for a lead single. “Don’t Wanna Go Home” was the same thing – a girl passing out drunk in his lap. He’s trying too hard to get club play and he probably doesn’t even frequent one. If I pay any attention to him this year, it will be for the dancing and choreography; nothing more.

    Oh well, good luck w/that I guess.

    I’m not even here to hate on “Da Hell No” 🙂

    I will just say that there is nothing catchy or captivating about this song and I actually love EDM – Club Music…….TUTM, Beautiful People, WFL, Don’t Wake Me Up! I’m not sure what the issue is with this dude? He has had a door open wide as he was pegged to be Chris Brown’s replacement a few years back and has had some success on the Single’s Chart scene!

    Perhaps he and Jordan Sparks will do a No Air type song…..wait, no they want….I still love that song and it’s her biggest hit to date! 🙂

    Considering the fact that he’s not an album seller, I don’t mind him doing Pop music only.

    But usually he comes out with a very strong first single each time, and this new single didn’t wow me at all.
