Calm Down hitmaker Rema, has been announced as one of the guest artiste on Jason Derulo’s upcoming Nu King album, expected to go live on February 16, 2024.

Other top acts like Michael Bublé, Meghan Trainor, French Montana, Tesher, Nicki Minaj, and lead vocalist of Maroon 5, Adam Levine, were also announced in a previous Instagram post as guest features.

Rema, who has been successful on all fronts in 2023, previously collaborated with Jason Derulo on his Ayo Girl track which has over 7 million YouTube views. The Wiggle hitmaker also featured recently Nigerian talent Bayanni on the remix of the song Ta Ta Ta.

The tracklist for Extend Play (EP) has not been revealed, but Jason has asked his fans to pre-save or order the album. He also announced the Nu King World Tour on Instagram, eyeing destinations like Stockholm, Oslo, Copenhagen, Paris, throughout February and March 2024.

Jason Derulo recently dropped the cover art for the album, wearing a crown of thorns (depicting Jesus Christ), which has been condemned by some of his followers as sacrilege.

In October 2023, Jason teamed up with Meghan Trainor on the brand new single Hands on Me, which sampled Ben. E. Kings’s Stand By Me hit. The official video for Hands on Me has so far reached 3.4 million views on YouTube.

Jason also responded to a sexual harassment lawsuit against him on X (twitter) describing them as “completely false and hurtful.”

“I wouldn’t normally comment, but these claims are completely false and hurtful. I stand against all forms of harassment, and I remain supportive of anybody following their dreams. I’ve always strived to live my life in a positively impactful way, and that’s why I sit here before you deeply offended, by these defamatory claims. God bless,” he wrote in October.

Rema recently released a video for his song titled DND but is yet to make his presence felt in 2024 as the celebrated ‘Prince of Afrobeats’, as the year is relatively young.
