  • Artist: Jason Derulo
  • Track: Make It Up As We Go
  • Feat. Rick Ross
  • Producer: The Fliptones
  • Album: Future History

Damn, a lot can change in a month; though Jason Derulo's last single, featured in early August, found him serenading a woman in hopes she'd become his "It Girl," the arrangement evidently didn't pan out as he'd hoped, and on his newest promo record the Beluga Heights crooner is singing a decidedly different tune. No longer quite so eager to slap a label on love, the artist suggests to his latest romantic interest: "Why don't we Make It Up as We Go?" Of course, as he goes on to reveal over Fliptones' dancefloor-ready synth boardwork, his concern isn't so much labels per se, but making sure there are: "no strings attached." Whether or not you find Derulo's propositions persuasive, you've got to admire his commitment to musical method acting; as he explains in this YouTube vlog, his verses were largely improvised in a state of acute intoxication. Acting as wingman on the back, guest emcee Ricky Rozay makes sure everyone knows who's "the one with the dough" is (Hint: it's Ross). So, Booth readers, was this jam as good for you as it was for me? If you dug it for real, you can purchase the record on iTunes now--or, for those who prefer to wait for the full package, you'll be able to cop J.D.'s second album, Future History, on Sept. 27.
