Album Cover: Jason Derulo – ‘Tattoos’

Tattoos

Jason Derulo shows off his neck tats on the illustrated cover of his third album Tattoos. Due September 24, the project features the pop hit “The Other Side” and 2 Chainz-assisted single “Talk Dirty.”

The title of the album was inspired by the months of rehabilitation during the recording process after he suffered a freak accident while preparing for his tour.

“Life altering experiences are like tattoos stuck to you for life,” said the Miami singer. “Some are more painful than others, some may be ugly so we wish we could undo them. Some may be so beautiful that we want to share them with the world. But they’re all part of the art that makes you who you are.

Jason showed off his slick moves while performing “The Other Side” on last night’s episode of “America’s Got Talent.” Watch his dance-heavy set below.
