Jason Derulo, 'Talk Dirty
It has been a minute since “Whatcha Say” had this music enthusiast excited about new pop/R&B artist Jason Derülo.

Derülo’s self-titled debut EP had some good tracks on it, specifically “Whatcha Say” with its Imogen Heap sample and the sick “Riding Solo”. When Derülo released his proper full-length debut, Future History, I found myself a bit overwhelmed. Perhaps it’s the biases I have towards pop- and electro-oriented R&B, or perhaps its was just some of the material was average. Still, I was able to get ...
