Jason Derulo Teaches TMZ Photog's Dad How to Do the 'Slidin' Dance

Jason Derulo's new single, "Slidin''' could become the dance song of the summer, and Jason not only showed us his moves, he taught our TMZ photog's dad how to get his groove on, at LAX!!!

Jason arrived at the airport early Friday, and said he has high hopes for his new song ... a song he says is about happiness in a troubled time for America and the world.

He's hoping the dance will catch fire, and even solicited a normie a few days ago to bust a move in his music video.

So, that got our photog thinking ... his parents had just arrived from Australia and were standing 5 feet from Jason. So, our guy asked JD if he'd show his dad how to do the "Slidin'" . .. and Jason more than obliged.

The video is hilarious, and Jason could not have been more awesome. Speaking of awesome, Pete Cotton has moves!!!

biography, best songs, interesting facts

Jason Derulo (Jason Derulo)

He managed so much by his thirty years that it seems incredible. Winner of prestigious awards, dancer, singer, author of super popular songs, judge of prestigious television shows - today Jason occupies a worthy place on the musical Olympus, one of the ten most famous performers of pop-hip-hop musical compositions. Jason Derulo (English spelling of the name - Jason Derulo) belongs to a new generation of performers. They received their musical education not on the streets and in underground passages, but in prestigious schools and academies. These guys can do almost everything: sing, dance, do high ballet jumps, play a variety of musical instruments. Work occupies their thoughts 24 hours a day. Possessing an incredible capacity for work, they quickly adopted the best from their idols (Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Stevie Wonder) and themselves became a role model for young performers.

Brief Biography

Jason Derulo was born in the sunny city of Miami, created for relaxation and recreation, in a strong and friendly family. The city, which mixed many cultures, has become fertile ground for young talent. While schoolchildren were just beginning to learn to read, Derulo (then his last name was spelled Desrouleaux) came up with his first song. At 16, he became an aspiring composer, composing hits for rappers: Diddy, Pitbull, Birdman and others.

According to Derulo himself, he realized very early what he wanted to become and began to work tirelessly on his career. He was little attracted to teenage parties and the study of school subjects, but he was irresistibly attracted to everything related to dance and music. This earlier start gave excellent results. Steadily moving towards his goal, the young performer becomes famous at the age of 20. Young Jason not only improves his plasticity, voice and demeanor on stage. He received his musical education at the School of the Performing Arts, then at the Dillard Center for the Arts in Fort Lauderdale. He is awarded a diploma of higher education at the New York Academy of Music and Drama.


Until the age of 20, Jason was known as a composer and wrote songs for other artists (mainly rappers). But then he managed to compose a hit, which it was a pity to give into the wrong hands. And Jason sang it himself. The single "Whatcha Say" took him to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 in 2009. It was after this song that the name Derulo was recognized not only by the American musical party, but by the whole world.

Since then, Jason has not taken breaks in his career, every year he overcomes new levels, winning prestigious awards, receiving high-profile titles. In 2011 he was named "composer of the year". 4 times his compositions won the top lines of the charts, and 11 of his singles got into the top ten. Throughout his career, Jason has won the BMI Pop Awards 5 times. He is recognized not only in his native country, but also on the other side of the ocean. Evidence of this is the international awards that the singer receives with enviable regularity. Among them are prestigious awards MTV Video Music, MTV Europe Music, MOBO - and others

The number of those who listen to it on the radio is, according to rough estimates, 20 million people. Approximately the same audience follows his life and work in social networks. He has a Youtube channel (more than 2 billion views), Twitter and Facebook accounts, an Instagram page, and an official website where you can see the schedule of upcoming concerts. The number of streams on Spotify has exceeded one billion.

The secret of success

Everyone knows that Americans are workaholics. But even the inhabitants of the North American continent Derulo impresses with its efficiency. He manages to write songs, record videos, take part in various shows, act in films and tour actively. The only thing that, apparently, the star does not have enough time for is his personal life. Jason has not yet started a family. His girl-friends list consists of only two names: Jordin Sparks (ex-girlfriend) and Daphne Joy (current girlfriend).

Today Jason is in excellent creative and physical shape. The owner of a plastic, flexible, strong body and a lyrical voice (tenor) - he is a model for young dancers, musicians, performers. All continents welcome the talented singer. The list of upcoming tours includes Argentina, Brazil, Ireland, Germany, the Netherlands, France. In 2016 he visited Moscow.

In September 2011, a second collection entitled "Future History" followed. In 2012, the singer had a forced break due to a serious injury to the cervical vertebrae.

The last studio album called "777" appeared in 2018.

Best songs

A touching story that a man is wrong has resonated in the hearts of millions of people. The dramatic manner and sincerity of the performance appealed to fans of quivering love stories. This is a song about the fact that a man did not immediately see his only one in his beloved, but realized the mistake. "Let me come back," he sings. In his eyes, true suffering - that is what bribed the listeners so much. "What are you going to say?" - the unfaithful lover asks the girl. What can you say here? Everyone has the right to make a mistake.

"Whatcha Say" (listen)

"Swalla". The new single was released on March 3, 2017. Clockwork song with sexual overtones is woven from hints and double meanings. Jason sings against the backdrop of sexy dancers, expensive cars, outrageous images. The call - "Move" ("Shimmi yay") - is the leitmotif of the song. What kind of movement is meant - sexual, physical, creative? Interpret as you wish.

"Swalla" (listen)

Colors. The composition appeared in February 2018 on the singer's official Youtube channel. It is this song that should become the anthem of the World Cup, which will be held in Russia this summer. A very politically correct composition about the equality of people, about the happiness that every participant of a grandiose event feels, about pride in their national flag. “It's wonderful,” Derulo sings, “that people are uniting. We are all champions."

"Colors" (listen)

Jason Derulo about music and career

In an interview, the performer is friendly, reserved, and laconic. He does not talk about politics, fashion, cars. All he is interested in is music. The singer reveals the inner world in his compositions and considers it unnecessary to add anything else. He says that the secret of his success is very simple, because he is doing what he loves.

"I'm not doing this for the numbers, not for the chart positions... I love making music, I love being in the studio, I love my fans, and I just want to write good songs and make better music, on what I can, until the end of my days. That's what matters most to me."

Almost every day on stage, every week - concerts in a new country. When asked about competition from younger performers, he simply shrugs his shoulders. “Music has a place for everyone. The main thing is talent. The difficult schedule seems to only give Jason extra energy. With each of his actions Derulo emphasizes a simple idea: in order to be successful, you must not stop - you must always move forward.
