19-year-old Jason Derulo knows his life’s work will be in music, and he already has an extensive résumé to prove it – in addition to writing for such prominent artists as Lil’ Wanye and Kat DeLuna, he also writes and performs his own material. On his new single, Algebra, he responds to the haters who didn’t believe in his star potential. Fliptones gives the young Miami singer/songwriter a polyphonic production on which he flexes his lyrical muscles. “They say, ‘Become a doctor,’ I don’t have the patience/ The road less traveled is the one that I’ll be taking.” Derulo’s Future History will be released next year.
