Jason Derulo & Michael Bublé Bring The Heat With New Single ‘Spicy Margarita’
Jason Derulo and Michael Bublé are bringing the heat on National Spicy Margarita Day with fiery new track, Spicy Margarita, available now via Atlantic Records. You can watch the song’s official lyric video below.
The surefire hit features samples from Dean Martin’s iconic Sway, which Bublé famously covered on his debut studio album over 20 years ago. Bublé’s version of Sway has amassed more than 415 million global streams to date.
The first-ever musical collaboration from the two chart-topping international icons, Spicy Margarita follows Bublé’s recent appearance on the premiere episode of Derulo’s new podcast series, On The Road, co-hosted by Sincere Show and available now via all leading podcast providers.
Derulo says, “Michael’s music has been a major part of my life. So, I played him Spicy Margarita, and he jumped on it immediately. He asked, ‘Is it okay if me and my guys add some orchestration?’ I was like, ‘Hell fucking yeah!’ His version was unbelievable. It was exactly what I envisioned. It has a Latin feel with a little Brazilian funk. I’m really excited for everyone to hear it.”
Buble adds, “The roots of what I do and what I love – the standards, the Great American Songbook – fit so perfectly with everything Jason is creating musically. Mixing the old school standards with a more modern pop sound was only a matter of time, and I knew if anyone was going to get it, it would be Jason. Right away I was excited, and then I listened to the demo and was blown away. I’m thrilled for everyone to finally hear ‘Spicy Margarita’ and hope you love it as much as we do.”
Spicy Margarita kicks off what looks to be another busy year for the indefatigable Derulo. The chart-topping sensation is to unveil the curtain on his 27-song project Nu King on February 16. The project will include his previously-release hit singles and new music.
Last year saw a non-stop series of releases from the industrious superstar including his acclaimed collaboration with fellow multi-platinum global superstar Meghan Trainor, Hands On Me (Feat. Meghan Trainor).
The track – which was teased across social media by both artists, and showcased by Derulo with a spectacular live performance on NBC’s America’s Got Talent – was met by critical applause from the likes of American Songwriter, which raved, “Derulo has made a career of consistently switching up his sonic direction. Both artists seem in their element on this nostalgic song.” The fun video also featured superstar socialite + business woman, Paris Hilton, and paid homage to and celebrated the 20th anniversary of the hit reality show, The Simple Life, in which Hilton co-starred alongside her best friend Nicole Richie.
With his Nu King album slated to release on 15 February, Derulo is set to embark on the “Nu King World Tour,” with dates in Portugal, Kazakhstan, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, France, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Belgium, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Italy, Switzerland, and Spain slated through June 2024.
