Talk tropey to me

  • Auto-Tune: He uses it in a majority of his songs, most noticeable in "Whatcha Say", though it's become much less noticeable as of recently.
  • Big Beautiful Woman: "Wiggle" encourages women to shake their "big fat butts".
  • Bigger Is Better in Bed: From "Talk Dirty":
    "Our conversations ain't long, but you know what is."
  • Genre Throwback: "Want to Want Me" incorporates some elements of funky 80s synthpop.
  • Intercourse with You: Many songs revolve around his sexual prowess. In particular, "In My Head", "Wiggle", "Trumpets", "Want to Want Me", and "Talk Dirty".
  • Mr. Fanservice: It would be easier to list the music videos where he doesn't take his shirt off at some point.
  • Sampling: The chorus of "Whatcha Say" samples from Imogen Heap's "Hide and Seek".
  • Self-Titled Album: His debut album from 2010.
  • Sexophone: "Talk Dirty" features this, even though the girls in the video are clearly playing trumpets.
  • Signed with a Kiss: Each verse of "Talk Dirty" has a line about his passport being "stamped" with lipstick; essentially saying each kiss mark is a partner he had while traveling the world.
    I got lipstick stamps on my passport
    I think I need a new one
  • Singer Name Drop: He says his name at the beginning of pretty much every song.
