"Pay close attention," Jason Derulo says just before he shows us his go-to dance move. 'The Other Side' crooner stopped by the PopCrush office to play a game of Pop the Question. He throws darts… and answers silly questions. The end result? We find out a lot more about Jason Derulo than he probably planned on sharing.
Pop the Question
Big Time Rush member Kendall Schmidt, who's also out promoting his side project / passion Heffron Drive, recently stopped by the PopCrush headquarters in New York City. While we had the pleasure of chatting with Kendall, 22, about his upcoming BTR album, his Heffron Drive music and more, the highlight of his visit had to be Pop the Question.
It's amazing the success pop / hip-hop duo Timeflies have garnered remixing hits by Kesha, Taylor Swift and even 'The Little Mermaid' for their weekly 'Timeflies Tuesdays' YouTube segments. But producer Rob "Rez" Resnick and singer / rapper Cal Shapiro were always ones to experiment -- especially when it came to freestyle and covers.
You may remember Il Volo when they made their U.S. debut performing on 'American Idol' a few years back… Now the pop-opera trio are busy traveling the world (literally) promoting their recently released sophomore album 'We Are Love,' a mix of contemporary hits mixed with Italian classics.
We were lucky enough to have the trio of teenagers -- Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto, and Gianluca Ginoble -- visit the PopCrush offices while they were in the States to take on a game of Pop the Question.
To say 15-year-old Becky G is fierce is an understatement. If you've seen her 'Otis' cover, then you most likely went "bananas" over it like big-time producer and songwriter Dr. Luke did. Now signed to Luke's label, Becky has collaborated with Cody Simpson ('Wish U Were Here'), Cher Lloyd ('Oath'), and is fervently working on her debut EP while continuing to do covers, like her confident spits over Kesha's hit 'Die Young'.
British invasion is in full swing, and the next artist to breakthrough in the U.S. are svelte girl-group the Saturdays. Last month they made a trip to the States to partake in New York Fashion week, walk the red carpet at the MTV VMAs, and ink a deal with Island Def Jam. But they also visited the PopCrush office to talk about their upcoming U.S. debut album and their next single, as well as try their aim in a game of Pop the Question.
Cher Lloyd has been all over the place promoting her 'Sticks + Stones' LP, officially released in the U.S. on Oct. 2, and when she recently visited PopCrush during an N.Y.C. visit, she was more than happy to partake in a game of Pop the Question! After the beautiful 'Want U Back' hit maker discussed her debut LP with us, she launched darts at our balloon questions, sometimes having better aim than others.
Marcus Canty may have gotten his big break on 'X Factor,' but he's quickly on his way to establishing himself as a bonafide R&B star. The super suave and equally as funny crooner recently stopped by the PopCrush office to discuss his forthcoming EP, slated for release on Oct. 30, and the upcoming season of 'X Factor.' He also partook in a game of Pop the Question, showing off some serious dart skills and answering some embarrassing questions for our enjoyment.
