Jason Derulo Drops ‘The Other Side,’ Teams Up With Jordin Sparks

Jason Derulo may be singing about his real-life girlfriend Jordin Sparks in his new single “The Other Side,” but that doesn’t mean things are always fireworks for the couple. In fact, it’s quite the opposite when they’re in the studio together.

“We kind of butt heads in the studio, a little bit,” Derulo told MTV News. “We kind of work differently and we’re very used to being in the studio, but being in the studio our way. So you know, it could get kind of ugly in there sometimes but we made it happen. It’s a beautiful thing. We did a few songs together; one will be on her album, one will be on mine.”

While Sparks isn’t featured on the track, the couple are working on a song on his forthcoming album.

The Other Side” was released Tuesday (April 16) and is the first single off Derulo’s upcoming album, due out later this year. The club-heavy song paints the picture of falling for someone.

“In the beginning I never thought it would be you/When we were chillin’ smiling in the photo booth/But we got closer ’til you were eating off my spoon/And coming over and we would talk all afternoon,” he sings.

It’s been a little bit since Derulo has been in the spotlight, following a neck injury. While preparing for his 2012 tour, Derulo performed an acrobatic move and landed on his head, which resulted in him fracturing one of his vertebra and postponing his tour and album. And by the looks of his Twitter, he’s both excited and nervous about coming back.

Derulo’s most recent album was 2011’s Future History.
