Tattoos is the third studio album by American recording artist Jason Derulo. The album was released on September 20, 2013 through Beluga Heights Records and Warner Bros. Records and its affiliated record labels. Incorporating a base core of R&B, pop music and electronic dance music, Derulo wanted the album to be "totally different" from his previous albums and show the growth in his writing and his overall performance saying "there are so many twists and turns on the album... It's important when someone thinks they've figured you out to flip them". A deluxe edition of the album featuring 3 bonus tracks, was released simultaneously alongside the eleven-track standard edition, which will only be made available in some European and Oceania countries.

Derulo co-wrote every song on the album, also calling upon the likes of RedOne, Ricky Reed, DJ Frank E, Jonas Jeberg and Martin Johnson as well as others, to handle production for the album. In total Derulo had written over 300 songs and recorded between 100 to 120 songs for the album over a one year period. Amongst those included are collaborations with rappers 2 Chainz, The Game and Pitbull, in addition to his long time girlfriend Jordin Sparks who features on a song called "Vertigo". Occasionally the album dips into other genres such adult contemporary and soul music.

Tattoos was promoted with live renditions of the album's songs during The Tattoos World Tour. The album was also preceded by the release of the lead single, a Joshua "Ammo" Coleman and Martin Johnson production called "The Other Side", which peaked at number two on the UK Singles Chart. A second single, "Talk Dirty", featuring American hip hop artist 2 Chainz, was released on August 2, 2013, it has since topped the charts in the United Kingdom and 13 other countries. Follow-up singles "Marry Me" was released a month before the album and reached the top-ten in Australia and top-twenty in New Zealand, whilst "Trumpets" was released in November 2013, peaking at number one in Australia and on the UK R&B singles chart. "Stupid Love" was released on March 24, 2014, as the fifth overall single and is currently impacting charts.

Upon its release, the album received generally mixed reviews from music critics, some noting that the album helped Derulo bring out his more "sensitive side" compared to previous his work. Tattoos debuted at number five on the Australian Albums Chart and the UK Albums Chart, where it became his highest charting album in that country. Only a five track Extended Play under the same title, was released in the United States, while the full length repackaged version of the album was released on April 15, 2014 under the new title, Talk Dirty. During that same week, a special edition of Tattoos was released in the UK and Australia, featuring all of the newly recorded material from Talk Dirty in addition to the original album.

Background[edit]

"It's a step up and I'm ready. It's important that people don't expect what I give them. It was a main goal of mine to mix up the sounds. There are so many twists and turns on the album... It's important when someone thinks they've figured you out to flip them."

— Jason Derulo, on the album.[1]

During rehearsals for his then upcoming "Future History World Tour" in January 2011, Derulo was practicing a stunt when he fell and broke his C2 vertebrae – leaving him in a neck brace for six months and forcing him to cancel his first headlining tour.[2] "I was not able to dance, I couldn't even really bop my head. It's the simple things that you take for granted — not being able to perform for that amount of time, and also knowing that it could be gone in an instant." said Jason during an interview.[3] "I wouldn't change the accident for anything because I've grown so much from it," Jason admits.[2] Derulo then decided to channel all of this creative energy into studio time, on writing and recording his third album. He had written over 300 songs, recorded between 100 to 120 of those songs for the album and had to narrow them down to 12.[4] A very difficult process for him as he states "I wanted to be sure that the album was a roller coaster ride, that every single song was totally different from the last... I wanted to be sure this album was far different from that one, to make sure that the growth was present. I'm 23 now. I really wanted this album to be a direct representation of who I am. I didn't want to hide anything. This album, I wanted to tell a story.[5]

In the U.S. Tattoos was only released as a 5-track extended play (EP); a full-length U.S.-exclusive version of the album titled Talk Dirty was released on April 15, 2014.[6] The new songs on the album include new collaboration with rappers Kid Ink, Snoop Dogg and Tyga while the albums production was handled by Timbaland, The Cataracs, Ammo, Jon Bellion, DJ Mustard, Martin Johnson, RedOne, and Wallpaper. The album includes all of the singles released from the international album including "Marry Me", "Talk Dirty" featuring 2 Chainz, "Stupid Love", "Trumpets" and "The Other Side" as well as the duet with his girlfriend Jordin Sparks on "Vertigo" and four additional newly recorded songs.[7]

Album title and artwork[edit]

On July 23, 2013 Derulo announced the title of third studio album would be Tattoos. The title of the album was inspired by the months of rehabilitation during the recording process after he injured his neck while preparing for his tour.[8][9] In an interview with Access Hollywood Live when speaking of the album's title Derulo said:

"Life altering experiences are like tattoos stuck to you for life... Some are more painful than others, some may be ugly, so we wish we could undo them. Some may be so beautiful that we want to share them with the world. But, they’re all part of the art that makes you who you are."[10]

On August 8, 2013, just over a month away from its US release, shortly after his performance on America’s Got Talent, Derulo revealed the album's official artwork.[11] The artwork is an illustration of Jason which shows a profile of his face, with designs shaved into his hair and the album's title written in ink on the side of his neck against a yellow shaded background.[9] The Japanese edition is titled Tattoos on My Heart.[12] The U.S. edition of the album will be titled Talk Dirty after the single of the same name and will include a brand new track list only for the U.S.[13]

Release and promotion[edit]

The album's official date was revealed on July 22, 2013. following the release of "The Other Side" Jason went on a promo tour to promote the single including guest appearances on Chelsea Lately and Good Morning America. On May 7, 2013 Jason performed the song live on the sixteenth season of Dancing with the Stars.[14] He also performed the song live on the 8th season of America's Got Talent on August 7, 2013.[15] He also sang the song with cover singer Tyler Ward and in a trio with Keke Palmer and Max Schneider. They later posted the videos on YouTube. Derulo performed "Talk Dirty" for the first time at the House of Blues in Orlando in conjunction with 102 JAMZ's Presents Hook Up #4. where he also performed an acoustic cover of "The Other Side".[16] he also performed the track at the iHeart Radio Live Coca-Cola Summer Concert Series in July 2013.[17] Derulo is heading to Australia on a promotional tour, during which he will perform on the Sunrise morning show and perform on The X Factor Australia among other yet to be confirmed performances.[18] While the full length album will be released to international territories in 2013, Derulo said, "I know the fans they wanted something here (In the US) and I wanted to give the fans at least something other than just the single. So I'm doing the EP and then the album will come out shortly after that."[19] The album contains an 11 track standard edition as well as a 14 track deluxe edition including 3 bonus tracks.[20] The album's official standard edition track listing was released on August 26, 2013 along with the release of the album's third single "Marry Me".[21]

Upon release, Tattoos has received generally mixed reviews. According to Metacritic, where they assign a weighted average score out of 100 to ratings and reviews from selected mainstream critics, the album received an average of 49, based on 4 reviews.[49] Marian Tuin from the Examiner, called the album "a therapeutic expression through songwriting." Digital Spy's, Robert Copsey summarised that Tattoos "may not be particularly bold or daring, but it's packed with enough hooks, singalong choruses and dancefloor-grabbing moments to make it a thoroughly enjoyable listen", rating the album 3 stars out of 5.[51] Caroline Sullivan from The Guardian, Also rating it 3 stars out of a possible 5, praised the album as a whole for its "clubby hooks." Sullivan went on to say that Derulo, as with his previous 2 albums, hasn't quite "figured out what to do about his innate romanticism", calling the album "a battle between the lover in him and the priapic Lothario."[53]

Rachel Keigley from the Sonoma State Star said Tattoos helps bring out Derulo's more "sensitive side" compared to previous his work stating "His songs come from the heart and it is evident he put his soul into each lyric." She noted that although at times Derulo reoccurring use of auto-tuning is definitely evident in this album as with his previous efforts, she praised his "his constant use of auto-tuning" which is a "style that Derulo uses to make his voice sound unique." Keigly concluded by saying that Tattoos "is filled with many hits that are catchy and will leave it’s audience with a euphoric feeling." [55] In writing for SoulHead, Yvorn Aswad agreed that during this time in the music industry "where electronic beats and auto-tuned voices are more tyrant than king, Derulo somehow manages to pull off those devices without weighing down the album. Instead he produces music that is auditory fun!." Aswad called the album "bubblegum" and "airy" saying "It passes through your ear like an ephemeral substance, elucidating moments of audio bliss. And it works!." Giving the album a B+ rating Aswad summarized that the album "exemplifies Derulo’s joie de vivre, making for a pleasant listening experience!."[56][57]

John Calvert of the UK magazine Fact gave the album its most negative review, giving it a 1 out of a possible 5 star rating. Calvert called Tattoos a "disjointed hotchpotch of incompatible tones, styles and sentiment – a product of today’s collectivised producer system whereby long-players are constructed like playlists. A gallery of trending white noise pop tropes blur into one, merging then with the equally anonymous presence that is the nondescript Derulo."[52] In writing for PopMatters, Brent Faulkner had a more positive to mixed review of the album, rating the album a 6 out of 10, summarizing that the Tattoos "is a pleasant album with some bright moments as well as some average ones. One of the pitfalls of modern pop is consistently sounding distinct and fresh, something that Derülo is a victim of. Essentially, Derülo hits enough jump shots to win the game, but he could’ve played better down the stretch."[54]

AllMusic's Andy Kellman said that Tattoos wasn't necessarily more serious than his two preceding albums Jason Derulo (2009) and Future History (2011), however said that it is "a little heavier on songs regarding monogamy." He described the album as hardly "one a step forward", as most of the albums content covers a variety of songs about "devotion and settling down" there is still plenty of space for "content about short-term relationships."[50] Reviewing the EP released in the United States, Dimas Sanfiorenzo had a positive review, stating the songs are "pretty enjoyable" but that it's "nothing groundbreaking".[58]

Commercial performance[edit]

On October 5, 2013, Tattoos opened on the UK official Albums Chart at number five, besting previous album Future History (2011) by two chart positions.[59] However, on the UK R&B Albums Chart, Tattoos failed to match Future History's peak position of number one, only managing to debut at number two.[60] As a result, it became Derulo's second highest charting album in the UK to date.[61] In Australia, Tattoos debuted on the ARIA top 40 albums chart at number five; it became Derulo's third top-ten album, and second top five.[62]

Tattoos also debuted in the top twenty in several other countries, including New Zealand, where it debuted at number ten;[63] Norway, where it debuted at number seven;[64] Ireland, where it debuted at number fourteen;[65] and Switzerland, where it debuted at number thirteen.[66] It also debuted outside the top ten on German albums chart at number 25.[67]
