Talk Dirty is the reissue of American recording artist Jason Derulo's third studio album, Tattoos (2013). The collection was released solely in the United States, after Tattoos was only released as a 5-track EP in the country. Released seven months after the original, the full-length album features seven songs from the international album as well as four newly recorded songs and was released by Warner Bros. Records on April 15, 2014. For the new material, Derulo worked with past collaborator Ricky Reed, as well as Jim Beanz, Timbaland, Sam Sumser, Chloe Angelides, Cirkut and DJ Mustard. New songs incorporate the same elements of pop, R&B and hip hop styles previously seen in the original album. Talk Dirty features new collaborations with rappers Kid Ink, Snoop Dogg and Tyga.
A new single "Wiggle" featuring American hip hop recording artist Snoop Dogg is scheduled for release as the fourth from the re-issue, and is currently awaiting release. The single's accompanying music video was shot on April 14, 2014 with director Colin Tilley. Talk Dirty has been promoted during the Tattoos World Tour, as well as live performances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Dancing With the Stars and the 2014 Billboard Music Awards. A Target-exclusive edition of the album featuring 2 bonus tracks from Tattoos, was released simultaneously alongside the eleven-track standard edition, while internationally, all of the newly recorded material was included on the Special edition of Tattoos.
Upon its release, Talk Dirty received generally mixed reviews from music critics, with many criticizing the overtly sexual themes and lyrics throughout the album, while others praised his vocal growth in some songs. Talk Dirty officially debuted at number four on the US Billboard 200 albums chart with 44,000 copies sold in its first week, 10,000 more than predicted, becoming Derulo's first top five album and highest charting album in the US to date, beating his debut album Jason Derulo by 1,000 copies.
