The fourth studio album for singer, Jason Derulo, comes out on June 2nd. The album, "Everything is 4" has been released through MTV to allow fans an early stream.

The follow-up of last year's "Talk Dirty" album, has a handful of well known guest singers such as Stevie Wonder, Jennifer Lopez, and Meghan Trainor, sometimes more than one per track.

The album starts off with Derulo's catchy, radio-hit single "Want To Want Me." The next two songs after that, "Cheyenne" and "Get Ugly," were released early. Both of which are typical in sound and lyrics for Derulo.

"Pull Up," is also very much reminisce of previous songs, like "Talk Dirty" and "Wiggle." In which the song is constructed with a lot of portions without lyrics that will effectively be for Derulo to show off some sweet dance moves.

"Love Me Down," sounds very much like a continuation of "Want To Want Me."

Track five, "Love Like That" is the beginning of the songs that feature guest singers. Within each song, Derulo borrows aspects of music the guest artist is known for. This particular song features K. Michelle, an R&B artist, that fits well with Derulo's R&B side. "Painkiller," has Meghan Trainor on it.

The sound is a very nice meeting point between Derulo's sound and Trainor's pop sound. Especially at the hook, the song sounds almost like espionage.

"Broke," the song featuring Stevie Wonder and Keith Urban, is like blue-grass meets that dub-step drop, with Stevie jamming on his harmonica. It doesn't sound appealing but this unusual match up is one of the best songs on the album.

Jennifer Lopez and Matoma are featured on the eighth track, "Try Me." The song as more of an island feel the choice of instruments and placement of back-up vocals. "Trade Hearts" is the last song with a guest star, Julia Michaels .

This song is much slower than the others on the album and focuses more on the singers' voices. So there are a lot of high notes and harmonies between both Derulo and Michaels, who sound very nice together.

The last song on the album is "X2CU." The song speeds things back up, so the listener isn't left in that spontaneous slow song. This song is about sleeping with someone as a rebound but they end up being real sexy and all you want is to rub it in you ex's face that you've upgraded and are doing fine.

It's a really fun song, music-wise as well. There's not much to write home about with the tracks that feature Derulo alone. They're all catchy and worth listening to but the best part of the album are the features.
