‘Israeli fans can expect my concert to be a non-stop party,” said American pop sensation Jason Derulo. He was answering questions from The Jerusalem Post ahead of his first show in Israel, on April 14 at Live Park in Rishon Lezion.

Derulo burst onto the scene in 2009 with the triple-platinum single “Watcha Say” and since then, the singer/dancer with the six-pack abs has been going strong.

His current tour is in support of his new album, Everything is 4, which like everything else the 26-year-old hit maker has done has turned to gold.

Among Derulo’s collaborations have been Snoop Dog and Israeli favorite sons Balkan Beat Box, whose “Hermetico” was used as a sample for Derulo’s hit “Talk Dirty to Me.”

“I love music of all types from all over the world. When we discovered Balkan Beat Box, it just felt right,” explains Derulo when asked why he was inspired to use an Israeli track in his song.

Although Israel has become fair game for attacks by boycott proponents, Derulo said that the primary form of communication from artists should be through music.

“Music is a great way for artists to express themselves. But when speaking on world issues, artists need to be sure to be educated on a topic before trying to influence anyone. I want to use music for good, to make people smile, laugh, dance, create good energy,” says Derulo.



He admitted he had never visited Israel before, but was expecting to travel the country with stops in Jerusalem, the Dead Sea and Tel Aviv.

“But,” he says, “As long as I see my fans, I will be happy. They are so important to me and I’m going to be there for them. I can’t wait to meet my fans in Israel and put on a show that they will never forget!” For more information on the concert visit www.jdlive.co.il.
