Jalebi Baby (feat. Tesher)

by Syd Briscoe

Jason Derulo: “Jalebi Baby (feat. Tesher)” - 3 mins 33s

Jason Derulo may be known mainly for announcing himself at the beginning of each and every song he puts out (and doesn't disappoint here), but this fun promo for 'Jalebi Baby' has more to offer than just meme potential. The track features Indian-Canadian singer Tesher, whose vocals offer a steadying base to Derulo's flashier trills.

Director Gil Green's promo feels almost nostalgic - a colourful affair bookended by snippets of narrative which establish the singers as waiters competing over the affections of a diner. Interesting choreography from Jeremy Kenyel Strong and Divya Jethwani blends American and Indian influences to good effect too, establishing the singers as a watchable "Bollywood-Hollywood duo".
