BURBANK, CA–(Marketwire – March 15, 2010) – “In My Head,” the latest single from red-hot
pop sensation Jason Derulo, has been certified platinum by the Recording
Industry Association of America for having sold more than one million
digital downloads. The track is the second single from the singer and
songwriter’s self-titled debut album, which debuted at No. 4 on the Digital
Albums chart (selling 17,583 downloads in its first week) and No. 11 on the
Billboard Top 200 Album chart.
Derulo, the first artist signed to Warner Bros. Records’ joint venture with
multi-platinum songwriter and producer J.R. Rotem’s label Beluga Heights,
wrote or co-wrote each track on the album, which was produced by Rotem, who
has also worked with Rihanna, Leona Lewis, Rick Ross, and many others.
The Miami native has already seen his star ascend with the blockbuster
success of “Whatcha Say,” which quickly climbed to No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot
100, Rhythmic, and Pop charts and remained atop the Pop chart for four
consecutive weeks, making Derulo one of two new artists who debuted in 2009
to go to No. 1 at all three formats with a debut single. “Whatcha Say,”
which climbed to No. 2 on the iTunes singles chart, has sold four million
copies worldwide, including three million in the U.S., and has been
certified double-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.
Derulo performed “In My Head” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on March 4th and
will appear on George Lopez’s Lopez Tonight on TBS on March 15th.
