Trumpets by Jason Derulo
“Trumpets” is the fourth released of Jason Derulo’s recent studio album “Tattoos”. The song was released at the end of August 2014 exclusively in Europe, New Zeeland and Australia, while in USA was launched in November 2013, following “Marry Me”.
“Trumpets” debuts with a common habituate of a young couple: he is watching TV, when she appears in the bedroom dressed extremely sensual, but their intimate moments are ruined by the imaginary trumpets singing in his head, embodied by an exuberant marching band invading their bedroom. The crowded band is in fact the expression of Jason Derulo’s feelings for his girlfriend, being present in all their essential moments.
Instead of getting angry by this inconvenient, she seems to even enjoy the noisy interference, in the end of the video being shown as dancing along with the marching band.
Whether they are in the car or in a night club, the trumpets would accompany Jason Derulo’s gestures to his girlfriend, such as an embrace or a kiss. The artist attempts to chase away the annoying marching band, but he ends dancing on the feverish rhythm of the trumpets in his head.
Contagiously, everybody dances in the end of video, suggesting that trumpets are the link between people, including the couple, as well as passersby, attracted by the sound of the musical instruments.
“Trumpets” is one of the videos, displaying a static Jason Derulo, who dances less, comparing with “Talk Dirty”. In the end of “Trumpets”, he performs an unconventional break dance, jumping on the car’s hood or hanging on the stairs of a block, according to the rhythm proposed by the “symphony” in his head.
“Trumpets”, similarly to the majority of Jason Derulo’s songs, was written by the artist, in association with Jon Bellion, also responsible for its production. Jon Bellion has previously written songs for Kanye West and Eminem. The song is a mixture of R&B, pop and hip hop, ironically mentioning the performance of Coldplay, Kanye West and Katty Perry.
On the other hand, the irony is completed by a focused expression of his own personality, Jason Derulo’s bedroom is decorated exclusively with his pictures and not a single picture of his partner in the video or any other person essential to him.
The video accompanying “Trumpets” was released on November 2013, Jason Derulo’s involving into its creation as director, with the help of Colin Tilley, previously having directed “Breathing”, “The Other Side” or “Talk Dirty”.
