Jason Derulo’s “Whatcha Say” Refreshes Imogen Heap’s “Hide and Seek”

Some fans of Imogen Heap’s 2005 song “Hide and Seek” will undoubtedly want to pull their hair out when they hear this new single from Jason DeRulo called “Whatcha Say,” which lifts Imogen for the chorus.

Personally, I think it’s a brilliant use of the sample, and since “Hide and Seek” was never a mass appeal radio hit, there are millions of people for whom this will be something entirely new.

Love it or hate it, you’re going to have a hard time avoiding “Whatcha Say,” as it’s catching fire very rapidly. Already #5 on the iTunes Top 100!
