Jason Derulo to perform at the State Fair

A new act for the Great New York State Fair is announced.

Pop music performer Jason Derulo will take the Chevy Court stage at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, August 22.

His latest single, "Talk Dirty", (featuring 2 Chainz) is his most successful song to date with 5 million sold worldwide and over 190 million views on YouTube.

Jason Derulo's career began when he was 16, writing hit songs for Lil' Wayne, Pitbull, Diddy, Sean Kingston, Cassie, and Danity Kane.

After releasing some hit singles, Jason Derulo suffered a severe neck injury and had to rehabilitate himself both mentally and physically.

His comeback record "The Other Side" set Derulo on a new and re-energized path.
