Having had his latest single, "Talk Dirty," chart on Billboard's coveted Top 10 singles list for the last three months (and counting!), Jason Derulo knows a thing or two about hit songs to make fans groove. Heading into summer, Us Weekly asked Derulo, who duets with longtime girlfriend Jordin Sparks on his album's "Vertigo," to share his idea of the ultimate summer party, beach or road trip playlist.
"Partition" by Beyonce: "I like it because I know all the girls are going to run to the dance floor and wiggle to it. It is crazy to drive to that one, too. The song turns up the [energy] level! The beat surges forward and it is perfect for hitting the open road. Just drive carefully!"
"La La La" by Naughty Boy featuring Sam Smith: "This song has a hot Drum 'N Bass sound that is blowing up overseas. I travel so much and I see how big it is getting that I know it is going to explode in the U.S. People all around the world go crazy for 'La La La.' It is a wicked sound."
"Stoner" by Young Thug featuring Wale: "It's a feel good record and goes hard in the club."
"Wiggle" by Jason Derulo: "'Talk Dirty' has a crazy energy, but when I play "Wiggle" at clubs and appearances it is a different, wild energy I have never seen before. When I recently sang [the lyric] 'you know what to do with that big fat butt,' people in Las Vegas [at an appearance] were dancing and shaking. People go nuts and I know it will be a song of the summer."
"Turn Down For What" by DJ Snake & Lil Jon – "The energy works to get you there [on road trips]. If you are dreading the final miles, just play it and it will get you there in a flash."
