I think it's safe to say that I'm a Derulo fan. U see, the thing is that his self titled debut belongs to the very selective list of albums that I could listen to back to back from the very first time I heard it. Others on that list include O (Omarion), Just Like Me (Keyshia Cole) and Because Of You (Ne-Yo). To me it's important that an album tells a story from beginning to end. Usually that means taking you through the different stages of a love story (often gone wrong). But the thing about Jason Derulo was that it expressed deep emotional feelings in a light and chit-chat-level way. I loved that. And the (auto-tune)sound and dance-ready feel were perfect.
