Great deals on musical instruments

Jason Derulo has agreed to work with JLS on their new album.

The 'Whatcha Say' singer was introduced to the British boy band - consisting of Aston Merrygold, Marvin Humes, Jonathan 'JB' Gill and Oritse Williams - on a recent trip to London and was so impressed with their "catchy" sound, he has agreed to pen some tracks for their next LP.

He told BANG Showbiz: "I went to a JLS concert and it was pretty cool. I got to meet them - nice guys.

"They wanna collaborate on some songwriting for their next project. So I'm going to write some tunes for them, absolutely. I'm looking forward to it."

Discussing what he likes about the boys' music - which includes the hit singles 'Beat Again', 'Everybody in Love' and 'One Shot' - he added: "I think it's really smooth. It's pretty catchy. It's easy to listen to."

Jason has agreed to help JLS break the US charts too but thinks he would need to alter their pop sound slightly when they cross the pond.

He said: "American taste is a little different. I think I would like to explore a few things with them. Just get into the studio and just kind of switch it up a bit."
