If you haven’t noticed, Jordin Sparks is all grown up and so is her music. HipHollywood caught up with the 25 year-old singer to talk about her forthcoming album Right Here Right Now and her new single “Double Tap” feat. 2 Chainz.
“I wish I could say I wrote “Double Tap” but I didn’t. I heard the song and I was like I have to sing this song,” explained Sparks of the track that plays off the Instagram term ‘double tap’. “It’s so right now and what a lot of girls are experiencing. Like I know you like me and you’re just going to stalk my page and you’re not going to like any of my pictures. … but it’s all in good fun.”
And fun is exactly what Sparks is having with her new music after a 6-year break. Now she’s signed to hit-maker Salaam Remi’s Sony Music imprint, and she couldn’t be more excited.
“The sound of the music is stuff I like to listen to in the car, more rhythmic R&B type stuff,” explained the former American Idol winner. “I would call this music ‘pretty music with a bump to it’ I guess.”
But if you think Sparks is singing all about her ex-boyfriend Jason Derulo, think again.
“I was recording before the break-up, during the break-up and after, so I have love songs on there, I’ve got my songs where I was feeling some type of way, I’ve got my sad songs and really sexy vibey songs as well, so theres a big mix on the record.”
In the meantime you can get Sparks’ single “Double Tap” on iTunes now.
