Jason Derulo has effectively taken over radio in the past two years with his infectious hits, including the horn-heavy “Talk Dirty (feat. 2 Chainz)” and last year’s “Wiggle.” Will 2015 also be Derulo’s year? We’re about to find out.

Today, the singer dropped his brand new single “Want To Want Me,” which was produced by Ian Kirkpatrick. The smooth, falsetto-filled pop number is a fairly big departure from the more club-friendly vibe of “Talk Dirty” and “Wiggle,” relying on sing-along friendly melodies rather than supplying horn blasts and beat drops as hooks. “If you want me girl, you got me/There’s nothing I wouldn’t do just to get up next to you,” the crooner promises.

The promo grind for the new single is also just getting started: He’ll be performing the song at the 2015 iHeart Radio Music Awards on March 29.

It’s an intriguing sonic switch-up, but will it work for Derulo? Listen to “Want To Want Me” below, and let us know in the comments.
