Jason Derulo + Jordin Sparks Working on Music Together
We love this! Super cute couple Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks are teaming up together not just in love, but also in the studio. The duo are recording a few duets together for one another’s upcoming albums. However, despite being so sweet together it gives us a toothache, things got a little sour for the pair in the studio.
“We kind of butt heads in the studio, a little bit,” Derulo chuckled to MTV News. “We kind of work differently and we’re very used to being in the studio, but being in the studio our way,” he explained. “So you know, it could get kind of ugly in there sometimes but we made it happen. It’s a beautiful thing. We did a few songs together; one will be on her album, one will be on mine.”
Derulo added that part of why they butted heads is actually because they’re so similar “I’m a perfectionist, but more importantly, I’m a control freak in what I want things to sound like, and she’s the same way,” he said. “It’s just that. I mean we made it happen. In the end, it’s not like crazy anger or anything like that.”
Part of the studio stress may have just been from Derulo’s anxiety to record, because he was set back in a big way when he had that brutal neck injury.
“I’ve been working on my album for about a year ago and I really wanted to make sure the material was ready and that I came back different and better than before,” he said. “I came off of a near-death experience, and it really helped me to grow up and change up a little bit. I feel like I’m a different person. I’m a little more grown-up, and my music will always match that,” he promised. “So it’s a Jason Derulo that is a little more sleek, a little more refined. The album has a full range of just all kinds of different material. You know there’s super-emotional love songs and there’s crazy party records, all having to do with what I’ve been going through for the past year.”
But some things won’t change. Derulo says of his upcoming video for ‘The Other Side': “You’re going to see a lot of hot sexiness and some dancing.”
