Singer/songwriter Jason Derulo’s Talk Dirty video featuring hip-hop recording artist 2 Chainz is nominated for Best Pop Video and Best Choreography at MTV’s 2014 Video Music Awards. The video was directed by Colin Tilley.
The song was risk for Derulo. Producer Ricky Reed originally made the song for rapper Missy Elliott who, let’s face it, isn’t afraid to sing anything. (She’s featured on a remix.) During an interview with Digital Spy, Derulo said he knew his fans would think Talk Dirty was “shocking” and “out there.” But he released the single with success. P.S. The hands you see on the album cover belong to Derulo’s girlfriend Jordin Sparks of American Idol.
