Derulo has sold more than 40 million records worldwide and amassed more than 1.2 billion views on his YouTube Channel. His last single, “Wiggle,” is his eighth song to reach the Top 10 on the Top 40 format and his ninth single to sell at least one million copies. Derulo’s single, “Talk Dirty” (ft. 2 Chainz), is his most successful track to date, having sold more than six million singles worldwide. The music video for it has garnered more than 200 million views on YouTube.
Derulo’s career started when he was 16 years old and began writing hits for the likes of Lil Wayne, Pitbull, Diddy, Sean Kingston, Cassie and Danity Kane. Now 24 years old, the Miami native has since received nods from the Teen Choice Awards, the MTV Europe Music Awards, the MOBO Awards and the BMI Pop Awards. His career-defining hits include “Whatcha Say,” “In My Head,” “Ridin’ Solo,” “Don’t Wanna Go Home” and “It Girl.” After suffering a catastrophic neck injury in 2012, Derulo released his comeback record, “The Other Side,” in 2013. It became radio’s No. 1 most-added record of the year.
