"Whatcha Say" is the debut single by American recording artist Jason Derulo and the first single released from his self-titled debut album. It was produced by J. R. Rotem with additional production by German producer Fuego and heavily samples the song "Hide and Seek" by Imogen Heap.[1] "Whatcha Say" topped the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in the United States.

Derulo recorded a new French-English version with French Guiana singer Fanny J. A new music video has also been released.[2]

Reception[edit]

"Whatcha Say" received mixed reviews. Glenn Gamboa of Newsday wrote: "For fans of Imogen Heap's "Hide and Seek", the new Jason Derulo single "Whatcha Say" – which liberally samples from the song and even uses Heap's chorus as his own chorus – may be hard to swallow. But Derulo weaves easily in and out of Heap's parts and matches his autotuned vocals to hers pretty well to craft a catchy, if derivative, little number."[3] Upon its November 2009 UK release, noted R&B writer Pete Lewis of 'Blues & Soul' described the single as "Blending pounding beats and Derulo's rich, soulful vocals with an instantly-infectious pop hook sampled from alternative/indie songstress Imogen Heap".[4]

Promotion[edit]

"Whatcha Say" was performed live by Derulo on Thanksgiving Day in Philadelphia for the 90th anniversary of the 6abc IKEA Thanksgiving Day Parade. The song was featured in Ben Affleck's film The Town. The song was also featured on the popular teen show, Gossip Girl, in the episode "Treasure of Serena Madre", which premiered on December 30, 2009.

Music video[edit]

The music video was released as the free video of the week on iTunes on October 27, 2009. In the music video, Derulo is seen cuddling on the couch inside a home penetrated by sunny lights with his love interest, and later on during the video, he is outside her door, waiting impatiently for her to forgive him, and begging her to let him in, which follows the lyrics in his song, "So let me in, give me another chance..." The music video premiered on Monday, November 16 on MTV's AMTV. A music video was also released for the acoustic version, which features J. R. Rotem playing the piano.[5]
