One thing we learned very quickly during our sitdown with fleet-footed crooner Jason Derulo is that he wasn’t going to let the neck fracture he sustained early on in 2012 slow him down — or keep him from doing a headstand in the just-released video for new single “The Other Side.” Another surprising bit of info we picked up: Jason says “The Other Side” was inspired by the bass lines in both Madonna‘s “Like A Virgin” and Michael Jackson‘s “Billie Jean.”
As for his upcoming third LP, Derulo tells Idolator he logged studio time with hit-makers like Dr. Luke and RedOne, and the album also has other artists featuring on a few songs — a first for Jason.
But let’s not give too much away just yet. We’ll let the singer tell you all about it himself, in the video above.
“The Other Side” is available on iTunes now. Jason Derulo’s yet-to-be-titled third album is due out later this year.
