This, and other banal moments of mild OCD, with Jason Derulo. “When you sing your name on a track 4 or 5 times to make the demons go away!”
FUN FACT: Jason Derulo fractured his neck in early 2012, forcing him to cancel his world tour. He’s been working on his new record while in a neck brace. Meanwhile, he still has 3 weeks left in his brace, and a month of rehab after that.

Young Money Cash Money Limp Booyah? There’s no such thing as a half-hearted booyah. Actually, there’s no such thing as booyah in popular vernacular since 1999. Don’t try to bring back booyah, Fred.
FUN FACT: We’re still waiting on a studio quality rip of that new Limp Bizkit (featuring Lil Wayne) song that was promised to us weeks ago.
