Jason Derulo, 'The Other Side' -- New Song

Published: May 22, 2013

Jason Derulo has released the first single from his upcoming third studio album. ''The Other Side'' was reportedly written about his girlfriend Jordin Sparks.

The 23-year-old pop star is well known for hits such as ''Whatcha Say'' and ''Ridin Solo.'' Like those songs, ''The Other Side'' is upbeat and includes memorable, sing-along hooks. The song also has a dance and club vibe to it, helped out by the production of Ammo. Although the song can be adapted as a party song, ''The Other Side'' was very personal to Derulo who was feeling thankful after a near-death experience. He told MTV, "I feel like I''m a different person. I''m a little more grown-up, and my music will always match that. So it''s a Jason Derulo that is a little more sleek, a little more refined." The track received its joyful and energetic feel from the experience and was also inspired by Sparks. The lyrics specifically discuss a friendship that turns into a relationship, which resembles Derulo''s and Sparks'' real-life relationship. Derulo sings, "This could be perfect, but we won''t know unless we try. I know you''re nervous, so just sit back and let me drive."

Derulo and Sparks have reportedly been collaborating on new material that may be on Derulo''s upcoming record. The still-unitlted record is scheduled to be released sometime in the summer. Take a trip to ''The Other Side'' with Jason Derulo right now on AOL Radio''s station.
