New Song: Jason Derulo – ‘It Girl’

Published: Wednesday 3rd Aug 2011 by Sam

With Jason Derulo‘s sophomore set ‘Future History’ LP due in stores next month, the 21 year old (…) wastes no time following-up its chart-topping lead single the project’s second single ‘It Girl’.

Take a listen to the track, which premiered moments ago, below…

For all the rightful critique we level at Mr Derulo’s performances, his musical offerings -truth be told- aren’t half bad. A point drilled home further with this his latest effort. Is it groundbreaking? No. Yet, what Forever 21 does serve up with this is a wholly radio-ready midtempo – which neither riles nor offends. If anything, the lack of discernible auto-tune (a staple on one too many of his songs) is somewhat refreshing.

Still, it begs the question: with Chris Brown back in full swing, does Jason pose a legitimate chart threat. Or can they co-exist?

    Honestly, this is not a bad song, but he really can’t sing at all.His voice really destroys the song for me.Even a half-decent American Idol bootcamp singer could pull this song off, but he can’t.
    And the fact that he thinks he’s SOOO good kills me : ‘Future History’, “you’re more important than a Grammy Award”.SIT

  9. KD August 3, 2011

    Yawn but we know that the single buying population (you know the ones with a ADD) will absolutely lap this boring, uninspired insipid mess up. SMH

  10. HaYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYy August 3, 2011

    heard this song a million times before
    i mean that as its not original and has been done before

  11. Madonnalover August 3, 2011

    He cant sing, but his tone is if not the same, very similar to chris browns?
    Please.
    He has a voice, but it’s weak. This song is not my cup of tea but jason always does good on the charts so……

  12. MISHKA August 3, 2011

    Still, it begs the question: with Chris Brown back in full swing, does Jason pose a legitimate chart threat. Or can they co-exist?

    Sam, please stop it. There’s enough room for anybody who can get some radio airplay. Let JD do his damn thang.

  13. Madonnalover August 3, 2011

    Oh, and another thing, dosent this song remind you of that s*** filled big time rush “boyfriend” mess?

  14. rihanna is the best! You will deal August 3, 2011

    He’s f****** cute and I love his voice. He and rihanna should do a song together!

  15. rihanna is the best! You will deal August 3, 2011

    Madonnalover you crazy! He can sing! Delusional ppl.

  16. rihanna is the best! You will deal August 3, 2011

    I don’t get why everyone is hating. He can sing better than justin bieber.

  17. rihanna is the best! You will deal August 3, 2011

    @Madonnalover Madonna can’t sing. Sit.

  18. Madonnalover August 3, 2011

    @rihanna……
    I never said he couldnt sweets.

  19. Madonnalover August 3, 2011

    @rihanna….
    Why are you bringing up momma pop? Im not even gonna defend her, its not even worth it. STFU, I didnt even come for jason, I said he could sing and he had a voice, I was actually defending him, so you can take this ——> /_ .

  20. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) August 3, 2011

    Why are people acting like Jason is a chart force???The only country where Jason did well is the UK (even JLS and ‘The Wanted’ do well there).

  21. lol August 3, 2011

    rihanna is the best! You will deal
    thank you JD is hittin higher notes than most of their favs

    i also think Jason and Rihanna would sound nice on a song together they both have those island accents

  22. Madonnalover August 3, 2011

    @ASAP
    Oh COME on……jason has had a number one on the U.S. hot 100 and also a top ten there with “watcha say” and “in my head”, along with the succesful singles in the UK. ALSO, his single from his new album, “Dont Wanna Go Home” peaked at number 14 in the u.s. which is pretty damn good as well.

  23. lol August 3, 2011

    @ASAP (As Sincere As Possible)
    Jason Derulo does well in all markets dont wanna go home was in the top ten of itunes in almost countries s*** ireland , denmark,us, uk , australia and etc

    so sit down and shut up

  24. Madonnalover August 3, 2011

    Also, youre acting like the UK dosent count towards being succesful on the charts? Jason has the potential to make history, almost any single he puts out charts well there, SO………

  25. Chile Please!! August 3, 2011

    He is so Kitty Kat K***! Work b****!

  26. Madonnalover August 3, 2011

    @LOL
    Yes hunny. This person is either a certified hater or just dosent want to give credit where credit is due. Jason is not just a “UK force”, he has WORLDWIDE appeal.

  27. Jay August 3, 2011

    He has more hit singles than chris brown so singles wise, yes he does kinda pose a threat to him. even though jason sucks as an artist.

  28. King Makers August 3, 2011

    Truth is, NO ONE CANE BE BREEZY!

    even that (CHRIS BROWN) name is unique on its own

    Breezy is not just any kind of singer, he is a super talented Dancer

    Jason reminds me of Neyo when he attempts to dance

    Chris is loved not only because of his career, but cos his name is CHRIS BREEZY!

    Just like Michael Jackson, or Usher, or R kelly etc

    Jason is a decent singer, but NAH! its teambreezy for life!

  29. jamir21:rih,gaga,brit,mimi,nicki,mike,and bey ! August 3, 2011

    Why is he still singing !? He is a flop….i dont like this song at all !!!!!

  30. Madonnalover August 3, 2011

    @Kingmakers
    But this isnt about him. Its about jason.

  31. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) August 3, 2011

    For God’s sake, I didn’t say he was a flop.I said he is not a huge chart force.And I was talking about this era.I know that he had hits last year.And yes, the UK is the 4th biggest market and it counts a lot, but if it was the ONLY one that counted then ‘JLS’ would be considered chart phenomenons.

    Btw, people use the phrase ‘SHUT UP’ quite loosley.It’s a blog and you don’t know me like that, so hold it and be polite.

  32. Madonnalover August 3, 2011

    THIS era, his first single “Dont Wanna Go Home” charted at #11 on the pop songs chart (U.S.) and entered at #92 on the billboard U.S. 100 and PEAKED #14 so…..

    Mind you, thats just his FIRST single released.

  33. King Makers August 3, 2011

    @JAY: OI BROV, DO YOUR RESEARCH B4 TO MINIMISE THE SH*T U BE CHATTING ON THIS BLOG
    NO! HE DOESN’T HAVE MORE HIT SINGLES THAN BREEZY I BET YOU ARE FROM A CORNER IN NORTHAMPTON! WHERE UK REPRESENTS THE WORLD

    BREEZY IS MONUMENTAL => NOT JUST AN ARTIST LIKE JASON

    I BET YOU’D BUY A TICKET TO SEE BREEZY B4 YOU EVEN THING OF JASON DESPITE HIS UK 1#S

    I KNOW YOU HATE BREEZY BUT …..NAH!!! NOT JASON=> TRY SOMEONE ELSE

  34. King Makers August 3, 2011

    @MADONNALOVE:

    I DON’T WANNA DISS JASON HONESTLY

    BUT DON’T WANNA GO HOME IS A MARSH SAMPLE!

    TO MAKE IT WORSE, HIS DANCE MOVES WAS FROM CHRIS AND USHER

    I HATE IT WHEN SOMEONE IS NOT ORIGINAL=> THAT JUST PUT ME OFF FINALLY

    THE UK WILL BUY ANYTHING THATS WHY TRASH LIKE LMFAO COULD TOP THE CHART & STAY THERE FOR WEEKS

    NOT SAYING HE ISN’T TALENTED, BUT NOT NEAR ENOUGH TO COMPARE HIM TO BREEZY.

    CHRIS CAME CLOSE DESPITE HIS SET BACKS WHICH IS ALOT MORE THAN “GOOD” KID JASON.

    IS JASON AN RNB SINGER OF A POP SINGER? HIS AUDIENCE ARE IN UK.

  35. MadonnaLover August 3, 2011

    @kingmakers
    And chris and usher got their moves from MJ so, are they original? NO.
    I hate when people do that, they try and put chris, usher, and other dancers on a pedestal calling them original when really they ARENT. Jason is a cool dancer, may not be as good as others but he’s still a good one. Dont compare him to chris, usher, etc when it comes to the dancing department. It’s not a crime to dance that way.

    Also, the UK does not just buy anything. His music is just popular there. Jason was not just at the top of the charts there, many other countries bought his music, and he got success in those countries (ireland, canada) as well.

    Also, Jason did not have to make a comeback. He’s already been popular, and he has the potential to keep up with chris, his first singles’ success proves that so……

  36. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) August 3, 2011

    I agree with all that @MADONNALOVER.I never said he’s a flop, I didn’t even say he’s underperforming, I just said he’s not a huge chart force.Nothing more, nothing less

  37. CURLY SUE August 3, 2011

    OH……………………

  38. King Makers August 3, 2011

    @MADONNALOVE:

    OH DIDN’T KNOW MJ DID THE DOGGIE OR COULD CRUMP!

    I CAN POINT OUT AREAS IN THAT DANCE VIDEO THAT JASON LIFTED CHRIS & USHER’S MOVES

    THESE MOVES BY THE WAY DO NOT BELONG TO MICHAEL JACKSON

    MOST OF THEM CAME FOR “DJ GOT US FALLING IN LOVE” BY USHER

    THE REST WAS FROM “CRAWL” BY CHRIS BROWN

    “POINT OF CORRECTION, BREEZY’S COME BACK ISN’T MUSICAL, ITS POLITICAL.”

    I WONDER IF HE CAN SURVIVE CONTINUOUS MEDIA BACLASH& ATTACH, HYPOCRISY, RACISM, FEMINISM, AND STILL BE AS SUCCESSFUL AS HE IS TODAY?!!!!

    BREEZY WHEN THROUGH ALL THAT AND CAME OUT RIGHT AT THE TOP!

    CHAMPION, YEAH 3X, BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE, AND NEXT TO YOU HAVE ALL BEEN TOP 5 &10 THIS YEAR ON THE UK CHARTS NOT TO TALK ABOUT, DEUCES, NO BS, LOOK AT ME NOW, (which peaked at 1# on the RnB charts for 7-8 weeks, 1# on rap charts 10-11 weeks 6# on the hot 100) she ain’t you & my last)

    with 6 BET awards under his belt & a potential 3 VMA soon, I’d say, Jason is a baby in this game

    BREEZY HAS ALWAYS BEEN A CLASS A PERFORMER & NO AWARD SHOW WAS COMPLETE WITHOUT HIM.

    EVEN HIS GRAFFITI SCOOPED UP 2 GRAMMY NODS

    JASON DON’T HAVE A SIGNATURE ANYTHING IN THE INDUSTRY YET=> EXCEPT “HIS NAME JASON DERULO” @ THE BEGINNING OF EVERY SONG

    YES HE HAS BEEN HAVING SUCCESS IN THE UK BUT BREEZY HAVING SUCCESS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE ATLANTIC B4 AND AFTER 2009.

    although Jason Derulo hasn’t had any problems with the industry yet thats why people are listening to his music, but if he does and still manages to come right back at the top like Breezy, then yeah i’d respect him. BUT RIGHT NOW, HE IS STILL A BUBBLE GUM ARTIST LIKE BIEBER.

  39. Sam has a small ego (queenbey) August 3, 2011

    @KING MAKERS- Cosign

  40. Kisses August 3, 2011

    Sam will type down anything to start a stan war…ugh! Chris will continue to do him, with or without Jason, and you will deal 😀

  41. MadonnaLover August 3, 2011

    @kingmakers
    Girl BYE. Jason does not CRUMP or dougie often. ALSO, chris brown didnt make up those moves either, so the point youre trying to make FAILS.

    The rest of your arguement is just……not worth my response.

  42. King Makers August 3, 2011

    thanks @SAM HAS A SMALL ……..

    Am not even saying that an artist need to have problems in order to gain respect

    its good to be good, its even better to be great but Breezy is AMAZING!

    Jason hasn’t been that long in the industry yet so we’d see how he performs

    but my advice to him is, he needs to find a brand quick and stop copying

    thats why Neyo & Trey couldn’t beat Chris when they both had the chance

    something unique that stands out about you amongst many, is your brand

    Jason is still a baby in the game (not in age), yet rewarded just like the biebers of the world.

  43. kody3x August 3, 2011

    of course sam had to bring up cb

  44. kody3x August 3, 2011

    @jay wtf is wrong with you how does derulo has more hits than chris brown derulo only had like 2 hits and they were in the period when chris brown was blackballed even now chris has way mores hits dumbass

  45. King Makers August 3, 2011

    @MADONNALOVE:

    JASON HAS COPIED JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE => “IN MY HEAD VIDEO” stricking resemblance to “LIKE I LOVE YOU” & NOW “DONT WANNA GO HOME” looks like “DJ GOT US FALLING” by Usher with Breezy’s dance moves.

    there are so many underground dance and moves you can lift and make you own. BUT DON’T COPY OTHERS KNOWN FOR PARTICULAR DANCE MOVES.

    Truth is, Justin, Usher & Chris always pays homage to MJ so if Jason wants to copy them, he should also pay homage to them. “AND YOU CAN NEVER BE BIGGER THAN AN ARTIST YOU PAY HOMAGE TO”

    Anyways, am not hatin on Jason I just think its wrong or perhaps too early to compare him to Breezy.

  46. lol August 3, 2011

    @King Makers

    1 You dont seem to be and avid fan of jason derulo so why are you here ?

    2 Sam brought Chris Brown name up so why you commin so hard at the commenters

    3 chris brown has yet to originate ANY dance moves all his s*** is mj + cali swag distrct + crump a.k.a crump creator cat eyez old moves

    4 i am sick and tired off them same redundant ass essays about the rise and pitfalls of chris brown yall sound like yall talkin bout martin luther king or some s*** girl/boy wipe your weepin eyes and get the f*** over it

    5 “in my head” video was a TRIBUTE to Justin Timberlake Jason already confirmed this talk what you know

    Oh yea then show me his awards.

  48. kody3x August 3, 2011

    @lol are you even a fan of chris brown

  49. Amy August 3, 2011

    This song is simply dreedful. This is the second song from his pending CD in which he has used profanity. I wonder why he doesn’t receive the same criticism others in his class receive?

  50. SMOKEY August 3, 2011

    If Jason is so damn great then show me his awards and nob”s for his hit singles

  51. Amy August 3, 2011

    @ LOL,

    If I heard this guy and Rihanna on a song together I would kill myself. I can’t believe you put them in the same sentence. I’m not a big Rihanna fan but this guy is twelve paces behind her.

  52. Legendtina4life August 3, 2011

    More generic auto tune crap from him. No suprise.

    To the people saying hes a world wide forcce, his album went gold in 3 countries, non of them were the U.S. And based off his performance at the TeenChoice Awards, I’d say hes talentless. I watched to see if is good live and he was horrible. Barely into the choreo and he was out of breathe and off key. And his style was completely ripped from MJ, Usher, Justin, and Chris.

  53. lol August 3, 2011

    @kody3x
    yes absolutely imma chris brown fan . I brought FAME just because im liked the songs LAME and All back if i like some thing or some one i support them end of story i just cant get with the memo that in order to be Teambreezy you have to practicaly shade every other male artist besides mj just to lift chris brown up ya feel me?

  54. lol August 3, 2011

    @Amy
    every arist curses . as long as he doesnt say “n**** this n**** that” im cool with it

  55. Slaydele, Slay$ha, & R.I.P Amy Slayhouse(Slaying from Heaven) August 3, 2011

    If you were to look up the definition of basic b****, yoou’d find a picture of Jason Derulo.

  56. SelenaFabulousGomezFan August 3, 2011

    He should release more nude photos 😉

  57. Beyonce Is Gorgeous August 3, 2011

    Jason Is Sexyyyyyyyyy!!!!! Yes Sir!!!! Keep Preserving Your S***!!!! Lmao

  58. Dane August 3, 2011

    ..nice!
    ..Jason Derulo is my fave male singer, while Toni Braxton is my favorite female singer.. #trivia 🙂

  59. rihanna is the best! You will deal August 3, 2011

    Madonna lover, your comment said he can’t sing. Thanks for correcting it if you’re changing your mind and yes I threw shade at ur fave cuz she can’t sing. Bye.

  60. nice_gurl August 4, 2011

    This song is quite a nice, relaxed song. I like it and he didn’t use as much auto-tune this time which is nice.

    Yes hunny. This person is either a certified hater or just dosent want to give credit where credit is due. Jason is not just a “UK force”, he has WORLDWIDE appeal.

    —————————————————————————–

    Oh the LIES!! I seriously cannot! Now I see why you are ALWAYS taking shots at Chris, you are stuck up Jason’s lame ass! The only think you can do is talk about his single accomplishments! LMAO! That’s all his lame ass has is SINGLE success! He is not on CB’s level and he will never be!

    A person who stans for MANdonna having the audacity to talk about someone’s singing abilities! The f****** nerve…….

    When Jason’s lame ass gets a gets a Grammy for best vocal performance or ANYTHING for that matter then you can talk, until then STFU!

    The fact of the matter is Chris Brown >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Jason! In EVERY way!

  62. nikita August 20, 2011

    stole that tune from big time rush’s “boyfriend”!!
