R&B singer Jason Derulo still bears boyish charm in Tattoos ballad “Marry Me,” but he takes time to list his more grown-up aims from the very start: “105 is the number that comes to my head when I think of all the years I want be with you.”
Reminiscent of Bruno Mars‘ “Just the Way You Are,” “Marry Me” finds that Derulo cannot propose just yet — he’s waiting for when he gets his money right, as he should. Still, he sounds elated. When claps and swelling strings enter, “Marry Me” turns into a stadium-sized ballad, as if to help match Derulo’s earnest sentiments like this one: “One day I won’t be able to ask loud enough.”
Hear “Marry Me,” or why Jordin Sparks is blushing right now, after the jump.
