Here’s Jason Derulo, re-purposing both the chord progression as well as the unabashedly cheesy inspirational vibe of Irene Cara’s “Flashdance… What a Feeling” for “The Sky’s the Limit”, the great fifth single from his self-titled debut album. Track-by-track, Jason Derulo is one of the most likeable pop records of the year. As its promotional sticker states “9 songs. 9 hits.” Here’s further proof. Although the album’s fourth single – the hypothetical love-(and marriage)-at-first-sight ballad “What If” – has so far missed the charts here in the U.S., “The Sky Is the Limit” is already taking off in Europe.
