His 2009 American debut single, “Down,” featuring Lil Wayne, topped the “Billboard Hot 100,” followed by several hit songs, including “Do You Remember” and “Hit the Lights.” 

 

Derulo was selected as 2011 “Songwriter of the Year” for “In My Head,” “Ridin’ Solo,” “Watcha Say” and “Replay” by the Broadcast Music Incorporated (BMI) Pop Music Awards. He also won the 2011 “50 Most Performed Songs of the Year” BMI Award for his song, “Replay.” 

We the Kings is a pop-punk band formed in 2000 from Bradenton, Fla., and is currently signed to the record label S-Curve Records. The group released their self-titled full-length debut album in 2007. Since this time, the band has since completed a variety of tours and released a new album this summer titled “Sunshine State of Mind.” We the Kings also host its own miniature series of Webisodes, “The King’s Carriage,” detailing life on their tour bus.
