The first artist signed to Warner Bros. Records' joint venture with multi-platinum songwriter and producer J.R. Rotem's label Beluga Heights, Derulo has quickly established himself as one of the breakout stars of 2010. With the triple-platinum "Whatcha Say" (which spent four consecutive weeks atop the Pop chart), and the platinum "In My Head," Derulo became the first male solo artist to score consecutive No. 1's on Billboard's Pop Songs radio airplay chart in the chart's 17-year-history with his first two entries. "Whatcha Say," which climbed to No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100, Rhythmic, and Pop charts, has sold five million copies, while Derulo's second single, "In My Head," has sold more than three million copies, both worldwide, to date. The new single, "Ridin' Solo," is quickly approaching one million units sold, is No. 4 on the iTunes Top Singles chart, and is heading toward the Top 10 at Top 40 radio, while its accompanying video has earned 12 million views on YouTube. Derulo has sold more than eight million singles and 600,000 albums worldwide.
So far this year, Derulo has performed on American Idol, The View, Lopez Tonight, and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Collectively, his videos have racked up more than 175 million views on YouTube, making Derulo the channel's 20th Most Viewed Musician of all time.
In late January, Derulo wrapped up a six-week stint on the road with Lady Gaga on her sold-out "Monster Ball" tour of North America, which included four shows at New York City's famed Radio City Music Hall. This summer, Derulo will hit the road as support for Black Eyed Peas in Canada in July, appear at the Summer Sonic Festival in Japan in August, and perform several dates in Europe, including England's V Festival, before hitting the road for a headlining U.S. tour at the end of September and Australia and New Zealand in November.
