Excuse Jason Derulo while he kisses the sky. The 26-year-old Miami native has already amassed 11 platinum hits over the course of his career, so it’s only natural that he’d want to pull those singles together on a new compilation album, Platinum, which dropped today (July 29). And he has included the new song “Kiss the Sky” along with the tracks most of his fans already know.
The upbeat song has a light funk feel to it thanks to the roving bass line and the way it starts and stops on the verses. “Cuz I believe we can fly now/ Spread your wings and kiss the sky,” Derulo sings in falsetto on the chorus. In the bridge he borrows from a popular musical euphemism and sings about “funking” all the ladies.
“Kiss the Sky” will also appear in the new animated film Storks starring Jennifer Aniston and Andy Samberg. Storks will hit theaters September 23.
