New music and the first video from her forthcoming album called “Battlefields”, it’s Jordin Sparks- Battlefield. Looking beautiful is Jordin and as for the song… I like it. Perfect soulful pop sound that we’ve come to expect from her. She’s here to stay, no doubt in my mind. I loved her first, self-titled album
It’s all systems go for American Idol: season six winner Jordin Sparks, who will release her second album “Battlefields on the 21st of July. This week the lead single and title-track “Battlefield” is the No.1 “most added single” at pop radio, according to industry monitoring service Mediabase. The song was premiered on American Idol recently.
Says Jordin on the title of the album: “To me, the title ‘Battlefield’ is about strength and perseverance. 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.”
“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.” With this album, Sparks has enlisted the help of a whole heap of talented producers including fellow label-mate T-Pain, Ryan Tedder of One Republic, Stargate, and others. The “Battlefield” video was directed by Philip Andelman and recently wrapped shooting in California. So stay tuned for that one.
Since winning the sixth season of American Idol back in 2007, she’s received rave album and concert reviews, been nominated for a Grammy and enjoyed three top 5 hits from here album including “Tattoo, “No Air” (a duet with Chris Brown) and “One Step At A Time.” She’s also going to be touring North America with The Jonas Brothers, which kicks off in Dallas on June 20th.
Just on a side note though, it really annoys me when these artists say their touring the world and yet they generally land up going to only two continents. Um they need to realise that in addition to North America and Europe, there are other continents IN THE WORLD including Africa, South America and Asia among others. Visiting a few other parts of the world too would constitute to a world tour. Same applies to Britney and others. Anyways that’s what I feel.
Stay tuned for more updates on Jordin soon 🙂
