Jason Derulo slides into Metaverse with TerraZero

Written By Simon Mwebaze

If you have watched Jason Derulo‘s music videos, then you were probably amazed by his dance moves. Besides his music videos being upbeat, entertaining, and catchy, his flips, break dancing, and slides keep you glued.

This time around, rather than slide across your screen, Jason will be sliding into the Metaverse. This is all thanks to a collaboration between TerraZero and Atlantic Records.

The collaboration will go live in Decentraland on June 29. It will feature a recreation of Jason’s “Slidin” music video’s music.

TerraZero has built an experience to premier the video, which will give fans a chance to stylize the environment themselves, and it will give away an exclusive Metaverse pool party to one lucky fan and their friends.

“I would’ve given anything for this kind of connection with my idols growing up,” Derulo says. “The Metaverse, and how people can come together to experience something special. … This is definitely the future of the Internet–the way TerraZero is doing it and what we made together. I’ve always been a gamer at heart, which has always found its way into how I’ve written my music, and cultivated my career. Being an avatar in the Metaverse and connecting with people directly is a new way to show who I am beyond the screen and speakers. It’s super real in a very unreal way.”

What makes this cooler is that Derulo will uniquely take part. He will join in on the fun using his avatar. More so, toward the premier, he will be popping up in different locations across Decentraland.

“Jason is fantastically talented, and an amazing artist to work with–but when he goes on tour, Jason can only perform to the crowd that’s before him. In the Metaverse, we want to bring a global crowd to artists like Jason Derulo,” CEO of TerraZero Technologies Dan Reitzik said. “Why play to just 20,000 people in an arena when you can play to 20,000,000 in the Metaverse?”

What makes this special is it presents new kinds of interactions and stories. It helps merge figures like Jason Derulo from the real world with infinitely open-ended stories and moments that would never be possible, let alone interactive and social, in any other way, in any other medium.
