In my head (Jason Derulo) (black)

This song is R&B/pop/rock fusion, and the result is not bad at all, quite catchy too. It's become really famous in Britain (#1 in March, 2010), the USA and Australia, and it might also hit other countries too easily.

You can sing to the karaoke version here.

This is the story of a man who sees a girl in a club (a disco) and starts to have wild fantasies about her. Everything is happening only in his imagination, but in his head, he approaches the girl and seduces her by telling her he can be the best lover in the world, better than any of the other guys in the club. He’s the best and he’ll show her the summit of ecstasy. She accepts to leave with him... but everything was just in his head. At the end of the video, when they are going out of the club together hand in hand, suddenly we come back to reality and see Jason in his car, waiting for her to come out. When he approaches her she just says “haven’t we met before?”, which means that they met in the disco earlier in the night but he didn’t have the courage to talk to her, so all his self-confidence, his image of a sex-machine and all that, is just pure fantasy, it’s all in his head.

At the beginning of the song and at the end, we can hear a fragment of Jason Derulo’s previous hit, “Whatcha say” (you can see the video under the LINKS tab here).
