Jason Derulo Wrote a Song with Stevie Wonder & Keith Urban & It’s Not Bad: Listen

Jason Derulo, Stevie Wonder and Keith Urban walk into a bar.

Nah, this isn’t the start to a joke: it’s Derulo’s new song “Broke” and its featured guest list. And boy, is it a weird one.

Not that weird, in this case, is a bad thing, but it’s certainly unlike anything Derulo’s released from his upcoming new album so far. Think of “Broke” as a mashup between Derulo’s usual pop-inflected R&B, the post-chorus melody usually supplied by something like a trumpet or saxophone replaced by a harmonica—that’s where Wonder comes in, adding a quick solo toward the end.

As for the Urban element? Along with what sounds to be backing vocals, there’s underlying banjo and acoustic guitar that gives “Broke” the country music touch.
