Jason Derulo - Don’t Wanna Go Home

Posted 5 years ago
Producer:
The Fliptones
Album:
Future History

It’s practically a law of pop physics that, when an urban-music heavyweight has a hit using a particular sample, other artists and producers will jump on the source material, hoping to secure their own piece of the action. Even so, I assumed Harry Belafonte’s Banana Boat Song, previously flipped by Bangladesh on Weezy‘s 6’7” was too eccentric a selection to inspire another smash. Guess I was (potentially) wrong. On Don’t Wanna Go Home, the lead single off Jason Derulo‘s forthcoming sophomore set, the Beluga Heights/Warner Bros singer and production crew The Fliptones pair Belafonte’s “Day-o…” chorus with a scorching groove drawn from Robin S’ ‘93 dance classic, Show Me Love, in hopes of striking club-pop gold. While the premise is relatively boilerplate – Derulo’s at the local spot, enjoying the company of fine females and he doesn’t wanna leave – the record’s energy is palpable, and I see no reason why it shouldn’t have the club jumping “from the windows, to the walls.” (to quote Derulo quoting Lil Jon). If you this think single is more than the sum of its parts, keep it locked for all the latest on Future History, which has yet to receive a release date.
