Jun 2, 2015Occasionally, the more ambitious nature of Everything Is 4 reveals some of Derulo's weaknesses, like his insistence on indulging straight R&B (which feels basic compared to the unique mode of genre-bending he usually works in), but stretching musically also leads to arguably the most exciting moment here, the funk rave-up of album-closer "X2CU."

Derulo can make your "Talk Dirty" with a lot of style, maybe it's her record most luxurious. Never underestimate someone who can make your better, like Derulo's do.… Expand

He was a star who was trying a little too hard.
On his fourth album "Everything Is 4" (Warner Bros.), though, Derulo has hit his stride, easing back on all the sexy talk while still piling on the pop hooks.

Derulo has also expanded his musical palette on "Everything Is 4," especially brushing off his Michael Jackson-inspired falsetto on the unstoppable "Love Me Down" and its "Off the Wall"-inspired funk guitar. The likable "Want to Want Me" is a breezy summertime jam that leans more pop than R&B, an earworm that embeds immediately. On "X2CU," Derulo cozies up to "Delirious"-era Prince, while he cleverly coins a new kind of date, the "I just want my ex to see you" kind.
Derulo's artistic growth has also helped him land some impressive new collaborators. On "Broke," where he decides that Biggie was right about "Mo' money, mo' problems," Derulo lands Stevie Wonder to sing background vocals and play harmonica, while Keith Urban delivers some acoustic blues guitar riffs. On "Try Me," he teams with Jennifer Lopez for a cool mix of an old-school pop duet and of-the-moment, Latin-tinged production, while "Painkiller," his duet with Meghan Trainor, is another winner.
But it's the slow-burning ballad "Trade Hearts," where he lets newcomer Julia Michaels shine, where Derulo truly shows off his new skills, offering restraint and a surprising depth of emotion.
"Everything Is 4" is a grand new start to the next, even bigger phase of Derulo's career, one where he can just let his music speak for itself.… Expand

The bestDelusion, i'm always kind voting him because i always hope in a improvement, but this time he do a step back from his previous album. The best songs of the album are "Want to Want Me" and "Love Me Down" are f*cking identical, they're good disco songs. Another good track is "Cheyenne", it's original for his electro-funk beats. the rest of the album is badly produced and boring.

This is why his albums always sell a lot less of his singles.
A method to avoid this? Put in it some famous artists:
K. Michelle? She tries to make it better.
Meghan Trainor? Hell no.
Steve Wonder and Keith Urban? Useless.
Jennifer Lopez? She actually sounds a bit more fresh than usual.
Julia Michaels, who is probably the less know featured artist in "Everything is 4", gave the most appreciable contribute.
The worst songs are 'Pull Up' and 'X2CU' (even if the end is OK). The other are slightly less despicable.
Is it catchy? Yes, it is. Has he a nice ass? Yes, he has. Is this album worth it to listen? No, unless you are a bored dumb blonde girl.
The thing that baffles me the most are the 16 producers. The production sounds remedied and disappointingly mediocre. Since when Danja produces so cheesy?… Expand
