Jason Derulo Essentials
The man born Jason Joel Desrouleaux has been penning hits since he was a teenager. He might be the only musician equally at home with Disney pop princesses and Dirty South trap rappers. The tunes on this playlist touch pop, R&B, and club music without leaning too hard in one direction. As a vocalist, Derulo can translate the urgency of teenage romance, then turn around and get down and dirty in the club with Snoop Dogg and 2 Chainz. Even the album cuts show the sparkle of newly-minted hits.
