The first single, Battlefields has received huge reviews and is currently sitting in the top 10 on charts across the world. Quick facts on the album:
* “To me, the title ‘Battlefield’ is about strength and perseverance,” Jordin explains about the album and song title.
* “Things can go from good to bad in an instant, it could be family, friendship or work; and my favorite line in the song is, ‘you better go and get your armor’, because it’s telling you to be prepared for that time so that you can overcome it.”
On the album Jordin says, “I think the range of songs and topics on the entire album are ultimately about strength in life, love and in staying true to yourself.”
The 19-year old has called on several heavyweight producers in the industry including Dr. Luke, T-Pain, Ryan Tedder of One Republic fame and Stargate to name a few.
