Jordan Sparks Set To Release Album After Jason Derulo Split
They say looking good is the best revenge. Well, for Jordin Sparks, sounding good is the best revenge. (Who are we kidding? She looks amazing!)
Jordin’s personal life became the subject of the spotlight recently when her relationship ended with her boyfriend, singer Jason Derulo, but the songstress is more focused on her professional life, and we’re so excited — Jordin is releasing a brand new album!
We told you that Jordin would be writing, after her breakup, and now, Jordin EXCLUSIVELY confirms to HollywoodLife.com that her new album is expected to drop by the end of this year.
“I am working on new music,” she tells us. “The crazy thing is…I’ve actually been working on it for months, but I didn’t want to say ‘music is coming,’ and then have this extended period of time where it didn’t come. I’ve literally been in the studio for months and now, at this point, we’re in the homestretch. Our plan is to have music out by the end of this year. It’s coming soon.”
Right now, she’s finding directors for music videos, choosing the first look and figuring out what she wants to call the album, plus she’d love to collaborate with some big names including Nicki Minaj, Big Sean, T-Pain and T.I.
“I’ve got these fun really base-heavy R&B songs…and then I have my power-ballads,” Jordin reveals.
Jordin Sparks: ‘I’m Finally Able To Have Fun’
Everyone is wondering if Jason will be an inspiration for Jason’s new music, and Jordin tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that she looked to all of her life experiences.
“The inspiration was definitely just the stuff that I went through with my label and my personal life and my personal growth in dealing with loss in the family, dealing with all types of things, and also just additions — my mom just got married, my brother had a baby, he got married — just huge milestones have been happening so I’ve been really inspired by all of that.”
“As musicians, for us, our form of therapy is writing and being able to express ourselves in that way,” she reveals. “I do yoga and I work out and do other stuff, too, but music, it’s just got such a special place, and for other people, they can feel what you’re feeling and sometimes, they’re going through the same thing you are and it helps them through times. If I touch one person, I’m good. And I love being able to have the opportunity to touch more than that so if I can just keep touching people and helping them through stuff without even realizing it, I’ve done my job because that’s all I’ve ever wanted to do is tell stories and touch people.”
“These songs…I’m very connected to them,” Jordin says.
She adds that while she has always sang her heart out, after her most recent experience, she’s “really going to sing!” (You go, girl!) “I’m just having fun. I’m finally able to have fun and have a good time.”
Jordin Sparks: ‘My Life, I’m So Blessed’
We love seeing Jordin in such a good place, and we asked her where she envisions herself in five years, after all of her life experiences.
“I would definitely hope to still be singing and acting and doing all of that,” she tells HollywoodLife.com. “I’ll always have my voice, I’ll always be able to dive into somebody else’s life, as long as people will have me. I just want to be happy. I just want to be in a good place. I want my family to be healthy. I want to be healthy. I just want to continue being able to tell stories and touch people. I know it might sound really cliche, but what else is there that I could have? My life, I’m so blessed. I couldn’t ask for anything more. I get to sing for my job, my family is healthy, everybody’s happy. I just hope it continues.”
Keep your head up, Jordin! You are such an inspiration.
