I purchased this cd as I absolutely loved the single "Ridin' Solo". I was expecting to get a cd that had perhaps one or two good songs on it if I was lucky. Much to my surprise I love every song on this cd. The other reviewers have covered the songs well, so I won't go into that. All I can say if you are a fan of the few Jason Derulo songs you hear on the radio you will definitely enjoy this cd. There's lots of good dance music here.

**Originally posted on "#1 Hits From Another Planet" - 3/2/10**

As soon as Chris Brown's Forever hit it big, I knew that the same swooshy, synthy r&b sound would be ubiquitous in years to come. Now Jason Derulo's made an entire album of the stuff, and despite being pretty concise compared to other albums of this genre, it's certainly a mixed bag.

1. Whatcha Say - It's hard to accurately review this, since so much (aka: the best part) is borrowed from the Imogen Heap song. Without the lengthy sample, this would be pretty boring. Luckily, the hook transforms this into something better. Annoyingly, this begins the trend of Jason singing his name over the beginning of almost every track. 8/10

2. Ridin' Solo - Autotune to the max! Beyond that, though, the uptempo hook is ridiculously catchy. The verses less so. His voice sounds so strange here, but it gets high marks for that chorus. 7/10

3. In My Head - The second single, and one of the strongest tracks on the album. It's derivative in so many ways and sounds like so much already out there, but the melody is dangerously catchy. 8/10

4. The Sky's The Limit - This adheres to that Forever sound I mentioned earlier. Swooping atmospheric synths build up to a chorus that should be stronger than it is. Still, I'm happy to see another reasonably strong uptempo. 7/10

5. What If - Beginning with a ridiculously dramatic spoken intro, this is where the album takes a potentially dangerous turn into the banal. It's an average r&b ballad with one catchy bit in the chorus. Otherwise, completely forgettable and too overproduced for its own good. 5/10

6. Love Hangover - Thankfully, we're back to uptempo territory here. This is really pretty fantastic... probably my favorite track on the album.

When I first saw Jason Desrouleax (he changed the spelling of his name to make it more pronounceable), I dubbed him Chris Brown, Jr. Then when "Whatcha Say" became a #1 hit, I figured it was only because people didn't realize the chorus is built upon a sample that urban audiences aren't familiar with (in this case, Imogen Heap's "Hide and Seek"). But "Whatcha Say" isn't a bad song or anything; even so, you'd think his label wouldn't wait almost a full year to release his self-titled debut album (especially since it only has nine songs on it).

There are other good songs on here, like "Love Hangover", "Fallen" and "The Sky's the Limit". But the album might not quite be accessible to everyone because Jason has the kind of voice that sounds like he's using auto-tune, but he isn't. This makes a few of the songs sound the same after a while -- in fact, the only song that really breaks things up is the final one, "Blind". All in all, though, Jason's album is still worth checking out.

"Whatcha Say" put Jason on the map. With its slick video and catchy lyrics, I was hoping that he would be the next Big thing. There seems to be something missing here. At only 9 tracks or 40 minutes nearly all the songs try to play on the formula of Whatcha Say , but none come close to making an equal impact. Why did the record company not include "Part Time Lover" or "Cyber Love" Ft Mims on the cd? Both tracks have been viewed more than 200,000 times on Youtube and reveal a more edgier and different side. This album is in need of different genres not just all mid-tempo r'n'b which doesn't make him stand out from an already competitive crowd like Ne-Yo, Usher, etc.

I would have given this CD a 5 star rating but only gave it a 4. The only reason I did not give it a 5 is because it only has 9 songs on it. Every song is great with a catchy hook. I listen to it over and over. I especially love In My Head, What If, and Blinded. But all are very good. The CD would have been so much better if there were more songs. Jason reminds me of a combination of Chris Brown, Neyo and Usher. He is the whole package and wow can he dance too. The price on Amazon through CD Imports is only $7.99, which is really a great price. I will look forward to Jason's next CD.

I first of Jason Derulo somewhere in the past four years. Whatcha Say I heard on the radio, but I didn't know who he was. Derulo was bigger than I thought, with four singles charting on the Billboard Hot 100, three of them in the top 10.

I'm no stranger to pop music, which this is more geared towards than r&b. Jason has some great vocals, but at first listen, you will probably think none of the songs are as good as whatcha say, which is the first song. These are second and third listens. It's not a throwaway album, the singing really captures the feel of what Jason wanted.

If it is club music, it's more about finding a girl and dancing with her than it is nasty sex. But it is about being a playa of sorts.

1) Whatcha Say- The first single. It blew up summer 2009, but there was no album that year. If I would have heard the song that year, I'd say where's the release? I've reviewed darker music like Drake, but this is real sunny. The singing is real good. One of the best songs on the cd. 5 out of 5

2) Ridin' Solo- The third single. There's no stellar hook that captures you this time. If you have the patience, you'll find a strong track. It's a ridin' song, but it's apparent this isn't hard music. If you have stronger morals and are into pop, this one will fit you. The verses are great. 5 out of 5

3) In My Head- The second single. Jason Derulo picks the pace back up. It's real catchy, as much as whatcha say. Check this song out if you're new to Jason Derulo besides whatcha say. The singing is infectious. 5 out of 5

4) The Sky's the Limit- The fifth single. It didn't make it to US radio. Real on point singing. The hook is reeaal good. This could go for the clubs. It's more about a certain girl. Jason knows how to make songs for couples.
