Video: Jason Derulo – ‘Don’t Wanna Go Home’

Jason Derulo

Daylight comes, but Jason Derulo doesn’t want to go home in the video for the first single from his sophomore album Future Sounds, due in September. While his friends are passed out from the night before, the R&B singer ignites a warehouse with his electrifying moves, causing the water sprinklers to go off. Melody Thornton makes a cameo, dancing alongside him.

“The kid is so hardworking,” wrote the former Pussycat Doll. “He had an injured ankle and still killed the choreography, danced around all day and gave interviews. He is so deserving of all his success, trust me!”

Derulo explained his vision to Rap-Up TV. “I wrote the video treatment and [director] Rich Lee took my treatment and expanded upon it and elaborated on it, but it’s really special,” he said. “It’s a high-energy dance video, more dancing than anybody’s ever seen me do thus far, yet very sexy.”

    @40aintthenew20, You do know Chris Brown’s from VA right? Not that I second that Jason+Rihanna thing because truthfully I thought (and still do, kinda) think he’s a queen…

    @Um.Well.Sure., Actually I just re-read your comment and I just don’t know what it is that you are trying to say. Are you saying Jason is a fruit or Chris? Either way help me out cus it doesn’t make sense. However Chris who I am defending ain’t no fruit and actually I don’t believe Jason is either so what does the va have to do with it? You might be saying something nice I don’t know.

    @um well sure, Oh I get it because I said California king. That’s cause he lives and has lived in California for a few years now dummie. It’s called a subliminal message in a song so that it shoots over people’s head like yours. I think she is singing to him which is my opinion and I’m keeping it.

    @40aintthenew20, When I see Jason DeRulo, I see gay. As a bi-sexual person myself, I tend to know a homosexual when I see one. Secondly, I was just stating that Chris is from VA and even though he lives in CA doesn’t mean he’s going to claim being a “CA King”. I agree this song has SOME reference to Chris but not all, just like alot of HIS songs refer to her in some way.

    @40aintthenew20, Well I will give you the Jason thing cus you being bi-sexual yes you would know better than me and s/o to you for your honesty on that. I never said that Chris didn’t sing about Rihanna though. I like them both and it is what it is. However I was a bit harsh with the dummie thing and I apologize. I was trying to get away from someone getting on my nerves when I jumped on this blog so please forgive me. Stay blessed.

    @um well sure the above message was for you lol. Everybody hitting me up talking about I didn’t know you was bi. I don’t see anything wrong with it but it ain’t me haha.

    Wack.com He isn’t as good of a singer as Chris Brown nor as good of a singer/songwriter either. The video was okay, but Derulo is FAR from being an R&B singer. Dark skin don’t make you an R&B singer he is purely POP! Justin Beiber has nothing to be worried about.

    Don’t care for the song too much. The only reason i’m watching this music video was because Melody Thornton is featured in it! :)

    It’s pretty mediocre. Both the track and the music video. It’s just nothing no one has ever done before. I’ll definitely listen to this song, but I’m sure I will be sick of it after two weeks. :-)

    Heather, Justin Bieber couldn’t do anything this dude did in that video. From the singing to the dancing. With that being said, the song is still mediocre.

    @Heminem,
    That blonde girl is amazing! She’s so good. She needs to be in every video, like Nicki Minaj is appearing in every song, this girl needs to be in every video. So talented! Love watching her dance. :)

    I love how Jason DeRulo consistently copies other artists hard work and mix it into some auto-tuned bs beat to make people think he did it. Start being original and make your own music.

    so good to see Melanie Thornton dancing on her own, and that blond chick is hitting it! aren’t they the pussycat dolls dancers? not sure but she’s really good isn’t she? she’s from the RighThere video, now Jason DeRulo and the lastest is Pittbull feat. Marc Anthony Rain Over Me. I just saw Jason’s video now and recognized her! The music does have that party flavor to it.

    That was rather loevly!! A little constructive criticism, love: I heard one chord a bit off during Bad Romance, and the left hand could have been a bit more interesting. But I only say things like that to the best players I hear You are extremely talented and this was gorgeous.
