"Trumpets" is a song by recording artist Jason Derulo, released as the fourth single in Australia, New Zealand and the European market and third single in the UK, from his third studio album, Tattoos (2013). The song was written by Derulo (under his real name Jason Desrouleaux) and Jon Bellion, who also handled the production.

Although the song wasn't released as a single in the United States at the time, it was included on the US version of the album, Talk Dirty (2014). "Trumpets" was released in the US as the fifth single from Talk Dirty[2] and has since peaked at number 14 on the US Billboard Hot 100. It was sent to US pop and rhythmic radio on August 19, 2014.[3]

Background[edit]

Following the release of "Marry Me" as the third single from his album Tattoos in the US and some international markets, "Trumpets" was released as the fourth overall single from the album to the UK and European territories. "Trumpets" was written by Jason Desrouleaux and Jon Bellion who also handled the production.[4] The song was recorded by Vince Watson at Atlantic Studios in Hollywood, California.[4] with additional recordings by Josh Collins and Juan P. Negrete.[4] It was mixed by Roberto "Tito" Vazquez at Plush recording Studios in Orlando Florida.[4] It was mastered by Tom Coyne at sterling Sound in New York.[4]

Composition[edit]

"Trumpets" is a midtempo pop and R&B song written in the key of C major,[5] that runs for a duration of three minutes and thirty seven seconds and was written by Jason Derulo and Jon Bellion, who also handled the song's production.[6] Lyrically the song is about being so in love with and infatuated with someone that every time you're together, trumpets blast through your head, as heard in the lyrics "Every time that you get undressed/ I hear symphonies in my head."[7] It also states how various features of Jason's girlfriend remind him of other songs by other artists, including Coldplay (her eyes— possibly a reference to "Green Eyes"), Katy Perry (her bra— possibly a reference to "California Gurls", in the video for which Perry dons a distinctive cream-shooting bra) and Kanye West (her rear— possibly a reference to the 2 Chainz and Kanye West single "Birthday Song", which features many lyrics about "booty").

Music video[edit]

On October 11, 2013, the official lyric video for the song premiered on Derulo's official YouTube channel, after which he tweeted '#trumpets #tattoos' with a link to the video, to help promote the songs release.[8] The music video for "Trumpets" made its world premiere online through Derulo's official YouTube channel on November 3, 2013.[9] The video depicts Jason attempting to have sex with a young woman. Just as she takes off her clothes, he is bombarded by the sound of instruments and a marching band bursts into his bedroom.[7][10][11] The music video was directed by Jason Derulo as his directorial debut alongside Colin Tilley who has directed many of Derulo's previous videos and was produced by Jamee Ranta.[12] Derulo got backlash for the video from his record label for directing the video saying "it wasn't the right move or look, because I directed it." states Derulo.[12] He worked on it with Collin Tilley and got pictures in the background, singing the lyrics along with him.[12]

Live performances[edit]

Derulo performed "Trumpets" live for the first time in the UK on BBC Radio 1 1Xtra special performance in the Live Lounge.[13] He also performed the song at the Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball on December 8, 2013, along with his debut single "Whatcha Say", "The Other Side", "In My Head" and "Talk Dirty".[14] Derulo made his first televised performance of the song during a promotional tour in the UK on The Paul O'Grady Show on December 10, 2013.[15] Derulo also performed this track on New Years Day for the Dick Clark post show. On July 4, 2014, Derulo performed it on Good Morning America as part of its Summer Concert Series.[16] He performed the song during the MDA Show of Strength that aired on August 31, 2014, but was taped in May 2014.

Release and artwork[edit]

The artwork for the single features several of the same trumpet seen in Derulo's CGI neck tattoo on the album cover of Tattoos. On November 7, the single was first released in the UK. It was added to the playlist of British urban contemporary station BBC Radio 1Xtra.[17] It has since been released to many international territories while "Talk Dirty" was released in the US as the third single.[18]
