­­­­Jason Derulo set to Talk Dirty at Sumfest


Montego Bay, St. James; Reggae Sumfest adds a touch of sensual pop with American recording star Jason Derulo for the 22nd staging of the Festival at Catherine Hall, Montego Bay from July 13 – 19, 2014.

Set for International Night I, Friday, July 18, Derulo is no amateur in the entertainment scene.  The artiste has been in the business since the age of 16, having started his career as a producer and writer for acts such as Danity Kane, Sean Kingston, Lil Wayne, Cassidy, Iyaz and Lady Gaga. As a singer he is known for hits such as Talk Dirty, Ridin Solo, In My Head and Whatcha Say (#1 single in America upon release).

According to Executive Producer of Summerfest Productions, Johnny Gourzong, following dynamic performances from artistes such as Usher, Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj and Flo Rida, Derulo was a natural choice to be on the festival stage. “We have received overwhelming requests for Jason, so we are pleased to announce his confirmation on our line up. It’s going to be another great show this year.”


With the release of Derulo's third international album, Tattoos in September 2013 and his third U.S album Talk Dirty in April 2014, Derulo has not only chart toppers to share with his Jamaican fans, but also a slew of new music.

Born to Haitian parents in Florida, do not be surprised if Derulo comes back to his Caribbean roots during his Reggae Sumfest performance, which will mark his first appearance in Jamaica. Known for his energetic style of performing and having professional experience as a dancer and actor, Derulo is a performer at all levels. The artiste is also a fan of Jamaican music which he says he grew up listening to at home.

Reggae Sumfest will be staged from July 13 – 19 with a Beach Party on Sunday, July 13 at Aquasol Beach, the All White Party on Tuesday, July 15 at Pier 1 and stage shows from Thursday to Saturday at Catherine Hall. The festival will feature some of the greatest local and international performers. With the announcement of Busy Signal, Chronixx, Jah Cure, Beenie Man, Sanchez, Bounty Killer, I-Octane, Assassin, Mr. Vegas, Aidonia, Bugle, Nature, Spice, Alkaline, to complement the headliners, Wiz Khalifa, Sean Paul, Tessanne Chin, and Freddie McGregor anticipation is already frenetic for the 22nd staging of the show. Sponsors for this year’s festival include, Digicel, Iberostar, Secrets Resorts and Spa, Pepsi, Jamaica Tourist Board, and more.
