Jason Derulo lifts the veil on ‘Nu King’ his first album since 2015

Written by on February 16, 2024

Chart-topping sensation Jason Derulo officially kicks off a new era with Nu King. The 27-song project is available to stream now via Atlantic Records. As his boldest body of work yet, he collates a handful of fan favorites such as “Acapulco,” “Slow Low,” “Swalla,” “Lifestyle” [feat. Adam Levine], “Love Not War” [feat. Nuka], and more alongside various newly recorded anthems. The project received a special gold plaque upon release from Atlantic Records.

Indicative of his expansive vision, Jason has written and co-directed a 20-minute short film entitled A Dance With Shadows, set to roll out this month. The film will consist of visuals for “Spicy Margarita,” “U + I,” “Mad Love” [feat. YoungBoy Never Broke Again], and “Favorite Song.” Akin to a dark Marvel film steeped in its own otherworldly gangster lore, the action-packed visual moves at the speed of the music highlighted by moments of intrigue, betrayal, seduction, romance, and nonstop twists and turns.

“Nu King is the culmination of my career so far. It’s been nine years since my last full-length, and a lot has happened. I never stopped making music though. A lot of those songs didn’t have a proper home, so I made a place for them. The newer songs are just a piece of my life at the moment. Combining everything, the entire album has a cinematic feel. For the title, King is my son’s name. You can go further, and this is a crowning moment I’m really proud of. 2023 was a preparation year; 2024 is a year of celebrating all of the hard work I’ve put in and what I’ve built.” – Jason Derulo

Derulo is set to embark on the “Nu King World Tour,” beginning on February 22, with dates in Portugal, Kazakhstan, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, France, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Belgium, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Italy, Switzerland, and Spain slated through June 2024.
