DMW 2015 confirms that Jason Derulo will kick off the first night of festival.
Dubai, United Arab Emirates – Dubai Music Week (DMW) 2015 has announced that award-
winning singer, songwriter and dancer Jason Derulo will take to the stage of its opening night on
Wednesday, September 23rd. Ellie Goulding has also been recently confirmed to perform on
Thursday, September 24th and Thirty Seconds to Mars on Friday, September 25th.
With over 50 million singles sold worldwide, two billion views on YouTube and one billion plays on
Spotify, fans could be forgiven for thinking that Derulo has been a long-time fixture of the music
industry. Yet after only six years since the hit debut single “Whatcha Say”, Jason Derulo has taken
the worldwide music industry by storm.
Early in his career, Derulo sealed a reputation as a talented wordsmith; showcased by his
extensive songwriting for artists like P. Diddy, Sean Kingston and Lil Wayne. This skill was later
cemented in 2011, when Derulo was honoured as ‘Songwriter of the Year’ at the BMI Pop Awards.
Derulo’s status as a true industry powerhouse can also be found in his commanding on-stage
presence, which often sees the star engaging in incredible feats of dance. This has culminated in
extensive world tours and sold out shows.
Showing no signs of slowing down, Derulo’s fourth and latest studio album “Everything is 4”
merges the pop, dance and urban sensibilities which have seen him recognised as a truly genre
defying artist. The album includes the global hit “Want To Want Me”, which quickly became the
most added track in the history of Top 40 Radio, shattering the previous record held by Justin
Timberlake. Dubai audiences can look forward to an exciting and energetic live performance,
punctuated by hit singles like “Whatcha Say”, “In My Head” and “Ridin’ Solo”. Follow Jason Derulo
