Jordin Sparks you’ve been missed. The 23-year-old American Idol winner is back and with a slammin’ new track. If you like Ariana Grande’s “The Way,” you’ll love “Skipping A Beat.” It’s a bit more urban yet still has the same great pop sensibility. The infectious mid-tempo track is the perfect vehicle to reintroduce Sparks back to mainstream radio.
As an aside, did you know Sparks co-wrote Grande’s Top 10 hit, but label issues prevented her from releasing it. Everything happens for a reason as they say. “The Way” introduced us to Mariah Carey’s heir apparent and allowed Jordin to improve on that track.
I was hoping Jordin would release “Before It Breaks” first. She duets with boyfriend Jason Derulo on that track. While we wait for that potential gem, check out “Skipping A Beat” below. You’ll find yourself humming the hook instantly.
