On Friday, it was announced that Jason Derulo and Jawsh 685 had made it to the top of the UK singles chart with their single "Savage Love (Laxed - Siren Beat)", the song of which had become extremely popular on the video streaming app, TikTok. The app has really taken over when it comes to the chart, with many of the songs being used becoming successful. This track has quite a bit of controversial drama surrounding it as Jawsh 685 originally released the track, titled "Laxed (Siren Beat)", instrumentally, which is the track that became popular on TikTok; and, he later reached out to a variety of well-known stars, to remix the track, one of whom was Jason Derulo - who leaked his version in the hopes of being the one to release the official remix. I guess it worked in his favour and, regardless, the song became a hit.

I always forget how incredible Jason Derulo's voice is until he releases a new song, he's such a diverse artist and extremely versatile and it's great to hear him showcasing his vocal prowess on this track. Instrumentally, it's addicting, and it's no surprise that this blew up on TikTok, but Jason Derulo's vocals certainly make the song.

There's not a whole lot going on in the music video, we're in an era where quarantine videos are the norm, and I'm sure there's been plenty of music videos in the past that are absolutely brilliant and still could be done under the same restrictions as we have right now. I was hoping this would've been a lot better, especially since the song was planned to become a success. We just watch Jason Derulo in the studio, singing the song and grooving to the beat. I don't really have a lot to comment on, in some of the scenes he is shirtless, but throughout you can tell how much he likes this song, and that's what really matters... I just wish there was more to this, it really is quite forgettable.
