Top 20 Sneak Peek: Jason Derulo, “Don’t Wanna Go Home”


Jason Derulo‘s “Don’t Wanna Go Home” premieres online on Wednesday in advance of its appearance on VH1’s Top 20 Countdown Saturday at 9 a.m. ET/PT, but we (and our MTV siblings) have an exclusive thirty-second sneak peek, which you can see above!

“Don’t Wanna Go Home,” the lead single off Derulo’s forthcoming Future History, samples the 2009 remix of Robin S.‘s early-nineties house classic “Show Me Love,” while lyrically riffing on Harry Belafonte’s “Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)”—namely “daylight comes, and we don’t wanna go home.” Written out, it sounds like an unworkable combination, but Derulo pulls it off! I mean, he is the the guy who wrote a hit single around the “Dear Sister” break, so it shouldn’t really be surprising.

In this video sneak, Derulo leaves behind his fellow partiers, all far more exhausted than he, and, in the steamy, under-ventilated warehouse that serves as the club, finds a dance partner, thus avoiding the awkwardness of being the guy who still wants to party when your friends have all gone to bed, not to mention initiating a choreographed courtship. We’re excited to see the rest of the clip at on Wednesday and on the Top 20 Countdown on Saturday morning.
