Singer Jason Derulo has given his latest hit ‘The Other Side’ an acoustic, guitar-driven makeover with an assist from YouTuber Tyler Ward.
The synthy dance pop song is taken down a notch, musically. It’s stripped down to its most base and laid bare in its most raw form.
The acoustic version is warm and fuzzy as a duet. The incredibly romantic lyrics take center stage in this version — they didn’t quite as much in the original. But the song’s just-won’t-quit melody asserts itself in both versions.
It’s a testament to the quality of the songwriting when it can be reimagined with layered harmonies and slowed down, all the while retaining the same level of impact.
In this video, Jason sings and dances. It’s interesting to watch his moves during a slowed down rendition of his song. Tyler strums. It’s simply amazing!
