Jason Derulo appeared on Ellen this week (from afar). They talked about his flourishing relationship and how the pandemic and quarantine fueled it. Plus Jason talks about his latest video collaborations with The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Will Smith, and his new remix with BTS. My favorite part of the interview, though, was finding out WHY he sings his name in songs. He stopped for a little while, but revived the habit this year in songs “Savage Love” and “Take You Dancing.”

Watch the video to see why he does it. For instant gratification, start watching at 04:11:

Do I believe that reason for singing his name at the beginning? I’m not sure. Am I mad about it? Nah.

Will I still sing his name with him at the beginning of songs? Oh, hell yeah.
