As required for any BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge visit, a cover of a current hit must be performed. Little Mix chose to take on Jason Derulo’s massive hit, “Want To Want Me.” And it didn’t disappoint.

The performance starts off with some wicked harmonies from the ladies before kicking into high gear with an unexpected mashup with Whitney Houston’s iconic “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” Are you kidding? If that wasn’t enough, a gospel choir is thrown in the mix.

The British quartet also gave a killer acoustic performance of their current single “Black Magic.” Congrats go out to the girls for scoring their third UK chart-topper. Hopefully, the catchy pop track does well stateside as well. Check out both performances below. Their vocals are on point.

It’s no secret that Jason Derulo looks to Michael Jackson for inspiration. From his dance moves to his style, you can certainly tell the King of Pop had a major influence on Derulo growing up.

The “Cheyenne” visual is definitely inspired by The Gloved One’s “Ghost” and “Thriller” clips. Just compare the dance scenes with zombie backup dancers. The 25-year-old finds himself trapped in a haunted mansion being a tormented by a creepy Ring-looking like chick. Check out the Syndrome-directed vid below.

The Rhythm Nation came out in full force to honor Janet Jackson at the 2015 BET Awards.

Tinashe, Jason Derulo and Ciara performed a killer dance tribute for the 49-year-old entertainer. The trio seamlessly executed iconic choreography from Janet’s “Pleasure Principle,” “All For You,” “If,” and “Rhythm Nation” music videos. This video is a must-watch for any JJ fan.

In addition to the dance tribute, the BET Awards bestowed Ms. Jackson with the Ultimate Icon: Music Dance Visual Award. Her longtime friends and producers Terry Lewis and Jimmy Jam presented it.

“We began a fantastic journey with a friend we celebrate tonight. She came to us a young woman with a lot to say and boy did she say it. She is Ms. Janet Jackson,” Lewis said. Jimmy Jam added, “At the time there were few women demanding respect and sounding so funky doing it. Janet’s music and her vocal expressions were empowering innovative and provocative.”

Though Janet didn’t perform, much to the dismay of the audience, she took to the stage to accept her award.

“Twenty-five years ago, we created Rhythm Nation hoping the world would be a better place. But today there’s even more to be done.” She added, “To all the fans,” she said, “I’ve missed you so much and I love you so much.”

I’m so ecstatic that the “No Sleeep” singer is back. Can’t wait for her new album to drop. Until that hits online, check out the dance tribute after the jump.

With a new gig as a panelist on So You Think You Can Dance, Jason Derulo spends most of his time on the West Coast these days. The “Want to Want Me” singer already has a home in LA which he shelled out $3.5 million for. Naturally, the 25-year-old wants to unload his home in Coconut Creek (45 min from Miami).

The country club estate spans 10,637 square feet, boasting 7 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms. Though the exterior has a Mediterranean feel, it features a lavish modern vibe inside. The amenities include an oversized pool with a waterfall, dance studio and personal gym. It’s clear Derulo spent lots of time in the latter. Dude has a bangin’ body.

The property is on the market for a cool $2.9 million. Check out pics of his Florida home below.

Everything Is 4 drops in just a few days on June 2. Ahead of its official release, Jason Derulo decided to stream his fourth studio album in its entirety. Bold and wise move.

“The album is the story of my life told so vividly that I feel that everyone can see themselves in these stories. It signifies maturation, growth and evolution,” Jason Derulo tells People. He adds, “I am confident that anyone who listens will come away thrilled with the quality of the songs.”

Though the album is packed with high-profile collaborations from the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Meghan Trainor, Keith Urban, K. Michelle and Stevie Wonder, it’s his most low-key duet that I enjoyed the most. “Trade Hearts” featuring singer-songwriter Julia Michaels is killer.

After quickly listening to the album, I’m pretty confident that either “Cheyenne” or “Get Ugly” will be his next single after his smash, “Want to Want Me,” begins to die down. I’m leaning towards the latter as his official follow-up. Give his entire album a listen below.

With Jennifer Lopez in tow, I fully expected a hard-hitting club anthem. I pictured the two throwing down some sexy choreography for the music video. Instead, Jason Derulo’s duet with the American Idol judge is a breezy summery island-tinged track. It doesn’t exactly scream smash hit, but is solid album filler.

Try Me” is the latest buzz countdown single off Derulo’s upcoming fourth studio album, Everything Is 4. Of the tracks debuted so far, the J. Lo-assisted number falls in the middle. Nothing great, but not awful either. It’s perfect to listen to while relaxing by the pool. Give it a listen below.

Jason Derulo’s forthcoming studio album, Everything Is 4, boasts some high-profile collaborations including K. Michelle, Meaghan Trainor, Jennifer Lopez and more. The first of the collabos to surface features Keith Urban and Stevie Wonder. An odd pairing to say the least, but it works in an oddly awkward way.

The reason why it works is due to the fact Urban and Wonder only contribute by playing the banjo and harmonica respectively. The country-infused track about having mo money and mo problems is a fun listen. Will it get an official release? Probably not, but it’s nice seeing Derulo experiment with a new sound.

Give “Broke” a listen below. Apparently, it’s not all about the Benjamins. I beg to differ ;)

Everything Is 4 doesn’t drop for another month, but fans now know what to look forward to. Jason Derulo unveiled the tracklist for his fourth studio album which features some notable collaborations. The roster includes K. Michelle, Keith Urban, Stevie Wonder, Meaghan Trainor, Jennifer Lopez and more. The Trainor-assisted track is the one that has piqued my interest the most. Rumor has it that it’s a dance concoction.

Earlier this week, the 25-year-old R&B singer shared another buzz single. “Cheyenne” is a 1980s-tinged mid-tempo track that could’ve easily been recorded by Michael Jackson during that decade. The bassline is sick and so is his falsetto.

Even though, Derulo scored the one-two punch of “Wiggle” and “Talk Dirty” off his last album, I think Everything Is 4 will yield more hits. The infectious “Want to Want Me” is still generating heat and has the potential to top the charts. Check out “Cheyenne” below, along with his LP’s tracklist.
