Review: Jason Derulo – Want to Want You (Pop)

This review covers the pop track Jason Derulo – Want to Want You.

This track was released in 2015 as part of the album Everything is 4.

The main element of this track is definitely the vocals. In some parts of the track, the male vocals hit extremely high notes in a somewhat similar fashion to The Darkness – I Believe in a Thing Called Love. Sometimes hitting high notes works really well for the track, but in this case, it sounds a bit unnecessary to me.

Since the vocals are a big part of this track, the lyrics are also a big part of this track. Unfortunately, there is a certain word being used that makes me think of music The Back Street Boys. Personally, the lyrics got boring back when that band was popular and bringing lyrics like that back makes them become an instant cliche in my books. Generally, I thought the lyrics was ultimately unimaginative and sometimes confusing.

As for the rest of the track. I tried to hear something interesting within this track thought the instruments or percussion’s, but with no instrumental solo’s in this track, this track ends up having a problem trying to stand out. There is a generic chord at play and par for the course percussion’s going on. So, because of the generic sound, this track becomes less than memorable.

So, between vocals hitting weirdly high notes, lyrics that sometimes makes no sense and sometimes resembling boy bands of old, the main elements of this track become forgettable. Compounding this problem are generic instruments and standard percussion’s with absolutely no solo’s whatsoever. As a result, what little ground this track makes is erased by a thick coating of generic sounds. A mostly forgettable track.
