Following an electrifying dance tribute for Janet Jackson at the 2015 BET Awards with Ciara and Tinashe, Jason Derulo releases the Syndrome-directed video for his next single “Cheyenne” inspired by the king of pop and Janet’s late brother Michael Jackson.
Produced by Ian Kirkpatrick and The Monsters & The Strangers, the 80’s-inspired track finds the Miami-native musing over a female vice. The “So You Think You Can Dance” judge gave a sneak peak of the upcoming video on Good Morning America where he revealed the inspiration behind the visual.
“I wanted to take it back to when music videos had a huge concept and a huge dance break. The video is kind of like The Haunting, Cheyenne is haunting my mind and she haunts me within the video.”
Derulo released his fourth studio album Everything Is 4 on June 2nd. Led by his fourth #1 single “Want To Want Me,” the 11-track album features appearances from Stevie Wonder, Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, Meghan Trainor, K. Michelle, Matoma and pop-songwriter Julia Michaels. Everything Is 4 is available for purchase on iTunes.
