Jason Derulo is an American singer, songwriter, dancer, and actor. Since 2009, he had sold over 30 million singles as a solo recording artist. “Wiggle”, “Talk Dirty”, “In My Head”, and “Whatcha Say” is among his most popular tracks.
He was born on September 21st, 1989 in Miami as Jason Joel Desrouleaux. When he was a baby, he was born to a Haitian mother and father. Desrouleaux began singing as a tiny child and developed a love for music from an early age. When he was eight years old, he began dabbling in the language of songwriting.
While still a teenager, Desrouleaux moved to New York City to pursue a degree in musical theatre performance at the prestigious Tisch School of the Arts. Lil Wayne and Grant Goan are among the many artists that have worked with him as a songwriter during the course of his career so far.
Initially, Jason Derulo was a songwriter. A singer’s dream came true for him after signing with the little Beluga Heights label, which ultimately became part of the Warner Music Group.
In 2009, he released his first single, “Whatcha Say.”
After debuting at number 54 on the Billboard Hot 100, the song went on to become the number one hit. The song was certified triple platinum by the RIAA after selling over five million digital downloads, establishing his career as a successful vocalist.
It was in 2010 that Derulo launched his debut album, which included both of the singles he had released in 2009. In spite of the fact that critics gave it a mixed reaction, the film was a big commercial success, selling 43,000 copies in its first week alone.
His sophomore effort, ‘Future History,’ was released in 2011. Derulo was also the album’s executive producer, and the album’s lead song, ‘Don’t Wanna Go Home,’ was produced by him. The album made it into the top ten in Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom, despite not being as economically successful as its predecessors.
In 2014, he became the most-played male artist on the radio, with nine singles reaching the Top 40 chart. Reissued as ‘Talk Dirty’ in the same year as its original release, his album ‘Tattoos,’ the re-titled album debuted at number four on the US Billboard 200 albums chart, selling 44,000 copies in its first week.
Jason Derulo has a net worth of $16 million as of July 2022.
Since his debut in 2009, Jason Derulo has grown to be a household figure in the music industry. His four studio albums since then have earned him an estimated $194,000 from the album Talk Dirty, $189,000 from the album Tattoos, $232,000 from the album Future History, and $572,000 from his self-titled Jason Derulo album from sales alone.
The fact that Derulo has over 33.9 million monthly Spotify listeners in addition to his record sales bodes well for his future earnings from the popular streaming service and royalties from his hit tracks. It is well-known that tours are the most lucrative source of money for any artist, and Derulo has done more than five tours, including two world tours, however exact details in terms of revenue are unclear.
After calling it quits due to artistic disagreements, he was signed to Warner Bros. Records for over a decade. It’s safe to say that Derulo gained a tidy sum of money during those eleven years thanks to the acclaim his albums and music have gotten. He has a contract with Atlantic Records at the moment.
Jason Derulo’s Acting Career
Derulo has dabbled with acting as well as appearing in reality shows. On September 28, 2016, he appeared in an episode of the Fox series “Lethal Weapon.” On the other hand, Rum Tum Tugger is a character he portrays in the film adaptation of the musical “Cats” in 2019.
Derulo and Jordin Sparks were together for three years before they broke up in September of that year. Since then, he’s been linked to a slew of celebrities, including models Daphne Joy and Ragon Miller.
