"If I'm Lucky" is a song by American singer and songwriter Jason Derulo. It was released on September 1, 2017[3], as the second single from his upcoming fifth album 2Sides[1]. The song was written by Derulo and Justin Tranter, while the production was handled by Mattman & Robin.[4]

Background and release[edit]

While talking about the song in an interview with Billboard, Derulo said; "I love the emotional feeling bursting. The effect of the echo, it kind of sounds like I’m in an empty room. I think it sounds like nothing else I write. It’s an emotional song that you can dance to. And the subject matter I think is really cool, it’s one that has never been talked about -- having a love that fails in this life, but it was a love that was so good that maybe the love will work in the next life.".[5] The official lyric video for "If I'm Lucky" was uploaded to Derulo's YouTube channel on September 1, 2017.[2] It was inspired by Michael Jackson's "Thriller" music video and features Derulo dancing with zombie dancers.[2]

Music video[edit]

On September 20, 2017, the trailer of the music video was uploaded to Derulo's YouTube channel.[6] The full video premiered on September 22.[7]

Live performances[edit]

Derulo performed the song live for the first time on the Good Morning America show on September 1, 2017 and later performed it on Sounds Like Friday Night on October 27, 2017.[5]
