Jason Derulo - Want To Want Me

So where did this come from? I mean, I hardly ever post tracks by mainstream U.S. artists anymore, mostly because I think most of them kind of suck. But then I hear this song from Jason Derulo of all people, and every last second of it screams Summer Anthem. It's actually pretty impressive that Derulo has been able to maintain his star power for a pretty long while, even if it is with crap like Talk Dirty. It's more impressive still that he decided to release something so unabashedly old-school pop when he could have just rehashed what's made him successful over the past few years. Want To Want Me is a propulsive, singalong dance song that borrows from Prince and Michael Jackson and every other great funk/dance artist of seventies onward. In that way, it's nearly a pastiche. But pastiche or not, it's that damn catchy chorus that kills each time. I'm surprised at how much I love it.
