On 21st September 1989, Jason Joel Desouleaux (Jason Derulo) was born in Miami city of Florida. Among three siblings, Jason is the youngest child of his Haitian parents. Since his early age, he has had a knack for music and began singing when he was just a child.
Can you believe he was just 8 when he started playing with words to craft his own songs? Sounds incredible – right?
During his teens, Jason embarked on his musical journey and went to learn musical theater in New York City. Being a songwriter, Jason wrote many songs for others, which includes the song Bossy for the New Orleans-based rapper – Birdman.
He has also written for Diddy, Donnie Klang, Lil Wayne, and Grant Goan during the early musical career.
As we have mentioned. Jason started his career as a songwriter from a very early age. Apart from that he built his career in the television industry and built a great acting career.
To enhance his singing and dancing skills, he joined the American Musical and Dramatic Academy. He made public appearances in the theater performances of Smokey Joe’s Café and Ragtime.

On 4th August 2009, Jason dropped his famous debut single Whatcha Say. In combination with Fuego, the track was composed by Rotem and resembles the song Hide and Seek sung by Imogen Heap.
It made way to the Billboard Hot 100 in late August – it debuted at the 54th position. The song peaked at 1st place in November.
This single fuelled his journey. Over 500 million digital downloads were sold, giving him an RIAA validation of triple platinum, thereby making him jump on the bandwagon as other successful singers.
Following the optimistic reviews, Jason started working on a debut album and launched his 2nd single In My Head on 8th December 2009. Oh yeah, Jason stole our hearts through his songs.
Even this made its place on the Billboard Hot 100 at 63rd position, eventually peaking at number 5.
Finally came the great event of his life: the release of his debut album. The album chartered in the Irish and UK Album Charts in the top 10 albums, containing both his hit songs of the previous year.
Even after receiving thousands of mixed reviews, the album became an instant hit and sold nearly 43,000 copies in the very first week.
His album received public appreciation when he promoted it as an opening act for the popular Lady Gaga in The Monster Ball Tour in 2009-2010.
