“Throughout my career, I’ve always tried to find new and creative ways to interact with my fans and technology has always been at the center of that philosophy,” says Derulo. “I have been watching and investing in the web3 space for a while now and seeing the impact it’s had on fostering communities had my mind racing. That’s why I’m incredibly excited for this Decentraland experience to be able to hang out with my fans in real time and experience the music video in a new way. Shout out TerraZero for architecting the space. I’m excited for you all to experience it.”
Directed by Michael Garcia, the visual is not far from Jason’s usual formula – fun, captivating and high-spirited. “When me and Jason spoke, we both knew this song needed a video big enough to match the song. Something sleek, sexy and screams summer…We are both really excited with the result!”
“Slidin’ (Ft. Kodak Black)” is available now via Atlantic Records at all DSPs and streaming services HERE. An official dance video – which sees Derulo challenge his fans with his own version of the electric slide – is streaming HERE. Produced by Jason Evigan, Jason Derulo, Lionel Crasta, Bluf & Smile High, “Slidin’” has all the energy and enthusiasm of a surefire smash, given extra heat from chart-topping rapper Kodak Black.
