The 'Don't Wanna Go Home' singer says he is "fitter than ever" after training for a year to get his fitness back.

Jason Derulo says he wanted to take things to "the next level" with his return to music this year, as well as saying his neck fracture in early 2012 helped make him into a "better man".

The 'It Girl' singer says he doesn't regret the injury, which led to the cancellation of his 'Future History' tour, and says he made sure he rehearsed and trained heavily to get into the best shape of his lire ready for his comeback.

"I wanted to take it to the next level, so I was training like crazy. I'd have eight-hour rehearsals," Jason told Daily Star this week. "Day after day I was rehearsing like crazy and eventually I got it. 

I'm fitter than ever," he revealed. "It was the opposite of what you think somebody should do a year after suffering a neck fracture. 

"But I wanted to show how someone can have something like that and carry on," Jason explained. "I'm coming off a huge- life-changing experience.

"I wouldn't have traded the experience for the world, it made me a better man," he added.
