Miami-born Jason Derulo has ruled the airwaves this year with three hit singles – “Whatcha Say,” “In My Head” and “Ridin’ Solo” – from his self-titled debut album. The 20-year-old singer, songwriter, dancer and actor became the first male solo artist to score consecutive No. 1’s on Billboard’s pop songs radio airplay chart in the chart’s 17-year history with his first two entries. His third single, “Ridin’ Solo,” quickly reached platinum status, while its accompanying video has already garnered 12 million views online. Derulo has sold more than 8 million singles and 600,000 albums worldwide, and was nominated for three TEEN CHOICE Awards.
