From “American Idol” to a household name, singer Jordin Sparks, 24, looks amazing in spite of a highly-publicized split from her longtime boyfriend, Jason Derulo, 25. On her new album, Right Here, Right Now, due for release in Spring 2015, she tells fans to expect “fun really base-heavy R&B songs and power-ballads.”
TV and radio personality Angela Yee hosted an intimate chat with Sparks during a live-taping to air on a special on BET.com. The chat between Jordin and Angela touched on several topics ranging from Jordin’s beginnings, experience in the music business, love for sports, how her father has played a major role in inspiring her, 2015 resolutions and the infamous breakup.
The conversation also touched on Jordin’s most recent music project “#ByeFelicia,” detailing her hiatus from music for the past five years, signing with Louder Than Life/Sony Music, why she’s moved to a more R&B sound, how she has evolved as an artist, and her favorite tracks from the mixtape.
