Background and release

He also shares his favorite lyric consists of: "One of my favorite lyrics is the ’105 is the number that comes to my head when I think of all the years I want to be with you. It’s one of those things you want to wake up next to that person forever so 105 is the number that I thought of".
The music video to "Marry Me" was released on Derulo's YouTube account on September 23, 2013. The video also features Jordin Sparks who appeared on the video because of how Derulo had dedicated to her. The music video also premiered on BET's 106 & Park the same day. In the video, Derulo can be seen buying a ring and also waking up with Sparks and also they can be seen by the piano while Sparks lays on top and Derulo singing to her. Then, other scenes include the two of them relaxing in a bath tub, watching a movie film, eating and fighting with flour. The two people that played the older version of Derulo and Sparks were Derulo's grandparents.
Karen Lanza of Popcruch said Derulo "has simultaneously granted the world its next top wedding tune and given girlfriend Jordin Sparks good reason to go shopping for a fancy white gown" and called it an "upbeat love song" Arjanwrites.com praised Jason vocals and writing skill in the song stating "Marry Me" neatly shows off Derulo's vocal chops and poignant songwriting savvy. It's a heartfelt, hook laden and soaring melodic ballad with a proper stomp that drives home the key message of the song."
