Warner Bros artist Mr. Radio, aka Jason Derulo, has set another milestone with “Want To Want Me” becoming the most added track in the history of Top 40 radio, besting the records of pop royalty such as Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Madonna and Katy Perry. Shattering the previous record held by Justin Timberlake at 126, Derulo’s “Want To Want Me” was added to 156 monitored pop stations, making it the biggest Top 40 US radio launch ever.
Released in early March, the ’80s-inspired pop tune, “Want To Want Me” was produced by Grammy-nominated producer, Ian Kirkpatrick, and written by Kirkpatrick, Sam Martin, Lindy Robbins, Mitch Allan and Derulo himself.
“I still can’t believe this ride. I couldn’t walk two years ago and now I am breaking records.”
No stranger to success, Jason dominated radio as the most played male artist in 2014. After the recent release of his new infectious single “Want To Want Me,” the triple threat, singer, songwriter, and dancer, Jason Derulo is already proving to be unstoppable in 2015.
In addition to breaking records, Jason is taking an unconventional approach to releasing his new music video through the extremely popular social app, Tinder. Jason states, “I wanted to find a new unique way to launch my video. I know my fans are tapped into social networking so what better way to launch my video for ‘Want To Want Me’ than through one of the fastest rising social networking apps, Tinder. I see this app as the wave of the future. I know my fans will swipe right.”
Jason Derulo will appear on The Meredith Vieira Show tomorrow, Tuesday, March 24, 2015 on NBC.
