"In My Head" is a song performed by American R&B singer Jason Derulo as the second single released from his self-titled debut album. It was first released via digital download on December 10, 2009. It topped the charts in Australia, Poland and the United Kingdom, and peaked within the top ten of the charts in several other countries. The song's official remix has a heavier R&B sound, and features Trinidadian rapper Nicki Minaj.[4] Derulo performed the song on the ninth season of American Idol.

Background[edit]

Jason has stated that "In My Head" was chosen to be released as the second single from the album to show the other side of his debut album. The song is electro-influenced, and has a heavier rock feel than the R&B and electronica-influenced "Whatcha Say", Derulo has stated that the album displays both sides, so "In My Head" was released to introduce his fans to electronic side of the record. The official remix features Nicki Minaj and was released on March 11, 2010. The song was originally titled "In My Bed", but Derulo and Kelly changed this to "In My Head" at the last minute.[5]

Music video[edit]

The music video was filmed in late December 2009 and released on January 23, 2010 via YouTube. The video begins in the parking lot of a convenience store, with Derulo leaning on a car with some friends when he eventually spots the female lead leaving the store. Derulo 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 Derulo 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 Derulo'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 Derulo'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.
