May 6, 2014 at 3:58 AM (PT)
JASON DERULO knows his recent hit single "Talk Dirty" is risqué but he's not worried about it, reports the ASSOCIATED PRESS.
DERULO said, "I try to be conscious of offending anybody, but not that much. I really just try to do my thing and of course there is going to be backlash on every song that I do, so I don't worry myself too much on that. People saying things like objectifying women. I'm like, what are you even talking about?"
He went on to say, "Talk Dirty" has dominated pop radio and the song has peaked at #3 on the BILLBOARD HOT 100 CHART. It has sold 3.2 million tracks and features lyrics like "But your booty don't need explaining' and 'First-class seat on my lap girl." I wasn't surprised that it would hit mainstream. I think in 2014, things you know, are getting more and more free and liberal. I'm comfortable with talking about what my life is and things that I go through."
The "Talk Dirty" album is DERULO's first to feature guest stars which include Hip-Hop's SNOOP DOGG, 2 CHAINZ, PITBULL, TYGA and KID INK.
DERULO who co-wrote BIRDMAN's "Bossy" said, "Most people don't know my background, but when I first started writing songs for other people it for hip-hop artists. The world knew me as a pop artist when I first came out in music, which is cool you know. I think I'm the first black male artist to actually come out first as a pop artist."
