Jason Derulo – Talk Dirty

image

Over the past year, Jason Derulo has teased us with singles from Talk Dirty and the time has finally come that we can get our hands on the full album. From beginning to end, this album is filled with hits and features some killer collaborations with 2 Chainz, Snoop Dogg, & Tyga just to name a few. For those of you with a love for sweet dance beats (like myself), this is your candy. Choreographers everywhere will be anxious to create some great moves & performances to this album.

Not to be overlooked, there are some beautiful R&B ballads on here as well, including “Vertigo”, sung with girlfriend Jordin Sparks. Derulo has been quoted to say that this is a very honest album and the lyrics do not lie. While being a very entertaining album, there is a vulnerabilty and realness that can be felt when listening to the words to songs like “Marry Me”. This album proves that Derulo is a very talented young man and will be around for a long time.

One thing that I definitely appreciate about this album is that his voice does not sound overproduced or edited. It has a very real, live feel to it, almost as if he went into the studio, recorded the vocal tracks and told them to skip out on the after effects. With all the overpolished music out there today, its really refreshing to see a younger artist that doesn’t use technology as a crutch for his career. I would love to see a live acoustic album to focus on the true beauty and natural talent of his voice.

With the release of Talk Dirty, hopefully that means there will be a supporting tour announced soon and we can get a first hand feel of how great these songs are live. One thing is for sure, this album will be on all of my summer playlists.
