Hot Video Alert: Jason Derülo - Don't Wanna Go Home
"Don't Wanna Go Home" was written by Derülo and co-written and produced by The Fliptones (Chaz William and David Delazyn). It's the lead single taken from Derülo's upcoming sophomore set, Future History, due this September on Beluga Heights/Warner Brothers Records. The song really has no excuse NOT to be a summer hit here in America and throughout Europe, featuring a sample of international club smash "Show Me Love," by Robin S. The song gets a little hokey with it's incorporation of "Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)" but I can let it slide. The Fliptones' production turn it into a modern dancefloor filler, hitting all the right notes. According to an interview Derülo gave to MTV, the song was meant to allow fans to escape their problems, pain and other hardships. Released just in time for spring/summer, I think Jason Derülo has the right idea. The question is, can he compete with Taio Cruz? The two artists are pretty much doing the same kind of music and right now Taio is pretty big over here. I guess only time will tell.
