The Miramar, Florida native, 30, shared a clip of his shootaround session with friends on social media, as he made the bet with a pal at his home in Southern California’s San Fernando Valley amid the coronavirus lockdown.
In the clip, which was scored to the song 2 Seater by YBN Nahmir featuring G Eazy & Offset, Derulo held up an electric razor as he announced what was at stake in the competition.
‘I’m tired of this man running his mouth: the loser … has to shave their eyebrow off – first one to miss!’ the Talk Dirty vocalist said in the clip.
When the competition began, Derulo hoisted a long range shot that went in, while his friend – clad in a Michael Jordan throwback jersey – answered him with a fadeaway jumper.
The friends again traded shots, with the Whatcha Say artist again showing off his shooting skills in drilling another long range shot.
But three times was not the charm for the If I’m Lucky singer, whose third attempt bounced off the rim, dooming his eyebrow.
Derulo wasted little time in making good on his wager, grabbing the razor while staring straight into the camera as he took the electric razor to his lefty eyebrow.
The In My Head performer, speaking to Forbes Tuesday, said that ‘it’s been a lot of fun’ to slow things down a bit as he’s normally ‘used to being on the road all the time.’
He’s also expanded his fan base with an active Tik Tok account that has more than 16 million followers. He told the outlet that spontaneity is a key to his success on the social media platform.
‘I don’t take it too seriously,’ he said. ‘If I’m learning a dance, I’ll learn into two minutes and shoot it in the third.’
