It’s been over two years since Miami dance machine Jason Derulo first announced his fifth studio album, ‘2Sides’ (originally titled ‘777’).
Introduced by the top 30 hit, 2017’s ‘Swalla’ (featuring Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign), the project has seen a number of singles lifted in its support over the months to follow (see: ‘If I’m Lucky,’ ‘Tip Toe,’ ‘MamaCita,’ and more) – but no parent album has surfaced.
That may be set to change with the release of new single, ‘Too Hot.’ A summery, island inspired jam that samples Chaka Demus & Pliers’ “Murder She Wrote,” the song sees Derulo croon:
“You came to the club in the taxi, but I’m sure you’d prefer the Rolls,” he sings. “So we could get changed in the backseat, because it’s summertime and you know it’s too hot for clothes.”
Hear it in full inside:
No word on when the cut’s music video is set to be delivered, but as fans await word on its premiere they will be pleased to know the 29-year-old has been keeping quite the busy schedule. In addition to putting the final touches on his new album, Derulo’s set to promote his role in the forthcoming film adaptation of the legendary Broadway play ‘Cats’ (which also stars Jennifer Hudson, Taylor Swift, and more).
After its December 20th release, Jason will focus his attention on the movie, ‘Spinning Gold.’ There, he’s been cast to portray R&B legend Ron Isley.
