The singer-songwriter, who is currently No1 in the Official UK Singles Chart with Don’t Wanna Go Home, confessed to MTV that he turned down the role of Jimi Hendrix in a forthcoming biopic as he wants to dedicate more of his time to films in the near future.
Speaking of his decision to reject the opportunity to play Hendrix, Derulo explained: “Future History is my main focus right now, it’s the greatest accomplishment of my life so far.”
“I really wanted to make sure it gets the exposure it deserves. It has to be heard by everybody. After this album, I will dive full-throttle into movies for a while. I will ultimately take a break from music.”
Jason added: “I just really want to continue on the same intensity of work ethic, I don’t want to slow now. I’m 21-year’s old and I feel like this era and a few years to come are my prime years, so I want to utilise them.”
