Jason Derulo made his latest album for ''selfish reasons''.
The American singer released his reissued third album 'Talk Dirty' this week, after a career set back when he suffered a neck injury onstage in 2012 and he thinks his new record helped his recovery.
He told the US edition of OK! Magazine: ''I think it's [the album] more of a representation of who I am as a person.
''I love to have a good time. I made this album for selfish reasons. I was trying to get myself out of a rut so I wasn't doing it for anyone else, it was me just trying to get myself out of a dark place because of the injury I had.
''It wasn't about writing a hit album, it wasn't about writing a hit song, but it was about making myself feel good and in the end I got an album that you can get to know me better on. That's what I'm excited about. A lot of people have heard the hit songs but who is Jason Derulo?''
He said: ''Everything happened organically. Like with the song 'Wiggle' I was like, 'It would be so dope if Snoop was on the track.'
''Then I saw him at the All-Star game and I was like, 'I have this track I want you to hear.' He was like, 'Oh, man, this is crazy. I'll send it back to you within 48 hours.' It all happens differently.''
Discussing working with Jordin, he revealed the pair recorded six different songs before they settled on the track 'Vertigo'.
''When I wrote 'Vertigo' I knew it was it. It's just us and the piano so the emotion really comes to life.''
