Miami dance machine Jason Derulo releases the 5th installment of his Vlog sessions prepping fans for ‘Future History‘ – his soon to be released sophomore set on Warner Bros. Records (September 27). Per request, the session sees Derulo lend fans a stripped down version of his hit ‘Ridin’ Solo’. And by ‘solo’, he probably meant ‘with autotune on mute’.
How did Derulo do with a lack of backing track? You be the judge after the jump:
While the riffs and runs should just slow down, this was an otherwise fairly solid showing from Derulo (whom we think would probably sound so much better if he’d stop trying so hard and just sing). It seems as if word of his earlier, less aurally pleasing performances got back to him and now he is on a quest to prove he can sing. And, like most, in the process he ends up sounding bad in a whole new way.
Here’s hoping the singer finds the happy medium in vocals between murder and miming (aka overdone and not done at all).
