EXCLUSIVE: Guess who's headlining Dubai Music Week? Find out here!
Dubai Music Week is getting closer and Ahlan! can reveal another act to join the exciting concert series. Joining Ellie Goulding and 30 Seconds to Mars is none other than.... JASON DERUUUULO!
Jason will be performing in Dubai on Wednesday 23 September, officially kicking off Dubai Music Week.
With over 50 million singles sold worldwide, two billion views on YouTube and one billion plays on Spotify, fans could be forgiven for thinking that Derulo has been a long-term fixture of the music industry. Yet after only six years since the hit debut single Whatcha Say, Jason has taken the worldwide music industry by storm.
Early in his career, Derulo sealed a reputation as a talented wordsmith, showcased by his extensive songwriting for artists like Puff Daddy, Sean Kingston and Lil Wayne. This skill was later cemented in 2011, when Derulo was honoured as 'Songwriter of the Year' at the BMI Pop Awards.
Derulo's status as a true industry powerhouse can also be found in his commanding on-stage presence, which often sees the star engaging in incredible feats of dance. This has culminated in extensive world tours and sold out shows.
Ellie Goulding has also been recently confirmed to perform on Thursday 24 September with Jared Leto leading Thirty Seconds to Mars on Friday 25 September 25.
The festival, which provides a platform for music fans to interact with local and international celebrities and musicians, will announce its final act for the Arabic night, celebrity speaker sessions and master classes soon.
