Looking great is the best revenge!!! Right?
Ciara isn’t the only R&B singer following that train of thought. Jordin Sparks is also flaunting her body to show what her ex is missing. The American Idol Season 6 winner just dropped the music video for her new single “Double Tap” and she looks fantastic.
The 2Chainz-assisted track is off her well-received #ByeFelicia mixtape and will also be featured on her forthcoming third studio album, Right Here, Right Now.
The urban scorcher has been described as somewhat of an Instagram anthem. The Dabs-directed music video plays on that by showing the 25-year-old singer on the social media app taking plenty of selfies hoping her admirers ‘double tap‘ her photos. Check out the clip below.
“For me in the song, the girl is talking to the guy saying, ‘I know you stalk my page. I know you look at the photos. I know that you don’t like them. I bet you’re not going to like that picture, but I know you like me,’” Sparks told Yahoo Music about the song.
“But then you can take it another way as well, like you’re in a relationship with someone,” she added. “Say we’re sitting next to each other. Say we’re together, right? I’m scrolling through my phone, and I hover over a picture of a really hot guy, and you’re like, ‘I know you’re not about to tap that picture. I know you’re not about to double-tap that picture in front of me.’”
Are original new Yuletide tracks from Kelly Clarkson, Leona Lewis or Ariana Grande not doing the trick? Perhaps, this holiday anthem by Jordin Sparks will get you in the Christmas spirit.
Inspired by the best feelings of the holidays, “This is My Wish” is a simple, joyful reminder that peace is the greatest gift of all. The American Idol Season 6 winner is joined by The Young People’s Chorus of New York City on the track. To honor the occasion, Glade is donating $150,000 to Toys for Tots. If you like the joyous single, you can download it for free.
Holy sexpot Jordin Sparks. Not only has the American Idol Season 6 winner grown up to become a very beautiful woman physically, but musically as well. Based on these two new tracks, her days pining over some crush on some peppy little beat are long gone. Girlfriend is giving me slinky soulful bedroom music. Weeeerk. Must be all that time she’s spending in the bedroom with Jason Derulo.
Both the following gems are produced by Salaam Remi. “Chocolate Brown Eyes” surfaced several weeks ago and is lifted of his One: In The Chamber album which features collaborations from Ne-Yo, Stephen Marley, Akon and more. I’m not sure what “11:11 (Wish)” is for, but thankful it debuted yesterday. I’m definitely feeling this creative direction Jordin’s taking. It sounds fantastic on the 23-year-old. Give both tracks a listen below.
Both Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo feature duets with each other on their upcoming albums. While the American Idol Season 6 winner teased “Before It Breaks” weeks ago, it’s Derulo’s Tattoos duet that’s surfaced in full first. It’s clear Jason is smitten with Jordin. His current official single “Marry Me” is about how he imagines proposing to his girlfriend in the future. Now, he’s making beautiful music with her. The two definitely have chemistry in and out of the recording studio.
“Vertigo” isn’t what you’d expect from Jason’s typical dance-oriented fare. Instead, it’s on the simpler side with very minimal production. Even though I’m sometimes dead inside, I’m a sucker for slow-tempo duets. So this one is right up my alley. Give it a listen below.
How romantic would it be to have someone write a song about you? And not in a Taylor Swift bitter ex-girlfriend kind of way, because that would suck. Rather, have one telling the world just how fantastic you are. Jordin Sparks is lucky to have not only have someone so in love with her, but also have a guy who’s a talented songwriter.
Even though Jason Derulo and Sparks aren’t engaged (yet), the R&B singer debuted a new track where he declares his love to the woman he loves and how he imagines his wedding proposal will be with the American Idol Season 6 winner. “We’ll forever be in love, so there ain’t no need to rush,” Derulo tells his lady. “But one day I wont be able to ask you loud enough. I’ll say, ‘Will you marry me?’” “Marry Me” is the second cut from his upcoming effort, Tattoos. Give the romantic track a listen below.
American Idol alums Jennifer Hudson and Jordin Sparks, along with Anthony Mackie headline The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete, but the gritty film is all about its young two newcomers. Skylan Brooks (Mister) and Ethan Dizon (Pete) are left to fend for themselves when their prostitute drug-addicted mom heads to the slammer. The boys received the strongest praise and response when the George Tillman, Jr-directed flick premiered at Sundance earlier this year.
The film also features new music by Alicia Keys. It will be in theaters in limited release starting October 11. Seeing Hudson all tatted up is definitely a far cry from her Dreamgirls days. Check out the trailer below.
Is there anything Kerry Washington can’t do? The woman is not only a talented actress, but has impeccable fashion sense and gorgeous to boot. Now we find out she has a pretty decent singing voice as well.
The 36-year-old Scandal star rose up to a karaoke challenge brought forth by Jordin Sparks. The Season 6 American Idol winner suggested they duet on “A Whole New World” from Aladdin since Washington is a hardcore Disney fan. These two need to head to a recording studio together immediately. Check out their impromptu sing-a-long-below. Side note: Is anyone else super excited for Scandal to return? I need my Gladiator fix.
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.
