Jason Derülo - In My Head

"In My Head" is a song performed by American R&B singer Jason Derülo as the second single released from his self-titled debut album, Jason Derülo. It was first released via digital download on December 9, 2009.

"In My Head" debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at #63 on the week ending December 26, 2009. It has since become Jason's second song to reach the top 10, at #8. The song peaked at #2 on the Canadian Hot 100 on the issue dated March 13, 2010, becoming his second top 3 single in Canada. It also debuted in Australia on the official ARIA Singles Chart at #1 and it is the only song (so far) to debut in Australia in 2010. It also debuted at #1 on the UK Singles Chart making it his first #1 and second consecutive top three hit there. In the same week, "In My Head" also became Derülo's second consecutive #1 UK R&B Chart hit. The song entered the Irish Singles Chart at number 3 on February 25th 2010 making it his highest charting single so for in that country.

The song's official remix has a heavier R&B sound, and features American rapper Nicki Minaj. Derülo performed the song on the ninth season of American Idol. You can listen to the remix below.

Listen to it here:

The music video was filmed in late December of 2009 and released on January 23, 2010 via YouTube. The video begins in the parking lot of a convenience store, with Derülo leaning on a car with some friends when he eventually spots the female lead leaving the store. Derülo is staring at her (with his debut single "Whatcha Say" playing in the background), and eventually he goes up and talks to her and starts singing to her. The video is an extensive dancing video with Derülo dancing near the car with the female lead, in the occasional breakaways, and far more extensively with two male dancers during the bridge of the song. The music video occasionally breaks away to Derülo's silhouette dancing in the fog. Eventually the girl he is dreaming about has joined him. In the end it is revealed that the entire music video was all in Derülo's head and the beginning scene is shown again with the female lead exiting the store as she did at the beginning of the video. As with the beginning, "Whatcha Say" is also played in the end. You can watch it below.
