Jordin Sparks Previews New Urban Material

In recent times, Jordin Sparks has made headlines more for her romantic life than her music. And by no fault of her own.

Record label drama has seen the American Idol winner take a hiatus of sorts from the charts and focus instead on what she was able to do freely – act.

Now, with the worst behind her, the 24-year-old is re-affixing her attention on music.

This week saw the vocal powerhouse showcase material from her forthcoming album and we must say that we’re surprised.

Renowned for her markedly Pop skew, Sparks appears to have made a 180º turn and is this time aiming for the clubs.

See what we mean below…

Very DJ Mustard flavoured, right? Yay or nay?

    It’ll flop no one checks for Jordin and its no shade she’s just boring as an artist. Im glad Jason dumped her flop ass.

    • The troll under the bridge October 24, 2014

      Your just a hater b****…..where’s your man Molly…..silence…… You sour slag

      • Molly October 24, 2014

        Sour about what sweetie?

    • Terry October 24, 2014

      Jason can sold singles that were about Jordin.
      He is annoying as hell and is trying to please white folks.
      I don’t think he even have a plat. Album.

    • Aaron October 24, 2014

      How are you gonna say no shade then call someone a flop ass? Jordin isn’t boring. I just think she was 17 when she started and was searching for her sound. I think with the right material she could have a top 40 hit. She’s only 24, still young enough to do it. You can’t deny that she doesn’t have a great voice. She just needs the right material.

    Looking forward, I like her.

    Lennox responded, “I was being asked about Beyoncé in the context of feminism, and I was thinking at the time about very impactful feminists that have dedicated their lives to the movement of liberating women and supporting women at the grass roots, and I was saying, ‘well that’s one end of the spectrum, and then you have the other end of the spectrum.'” Sheesh!

    She continued, “Listen, twerking is not feminism. Thats what I’m referring to. It’s not—it’s not liberating, it’s not empowering. It’s a sexual thing that you’re doing on a stage; it doesn’t empower you. That’s my feeling about it.”

    kiii pothang

    *plays “Tattoo” on full blast*

  8. teairra mari stan October 24, 2014

    Teairra Mari slays this pig

    • Terry October 24, 2014

      Who?

    • Aaron October 24, 2014

      Just when I thought I had heard it all…

  9. eric October 24, 2014

    I remember hearing Jordin on Alicia’s As I Am tour and her live voice was much better than her studio voice. If she can make this new sound work without forcing an image to go with it, then I think she’ll do just fine.

  10. Tasha October 24, 2014

    she did a song called “Chocolate Brown Eyes” and she sounds SO MUCH like Aaliyah. The runs, the tone, EVERYTHING. I wish she would stick to that true RNB sound and show her range but I also hope she does her signature pop songs similar to tatto and battlefield just so she can get her feat wet again and chart. Kinda glad she’s doing music… It wasn’t the label who stopped her it was Jason. He wanted her to be a ride or die and give up her career for him that’s why she stopped doing music and travels with him everywhere. She gave up herself to support him and i respect that but now I’m ready for new music!!

    • Citi October 24, 2014

      Funny u say that ! If you watch her sing the last song in the movie “sparkle” you do hear Aaliyah tones in her voice. I was watching it last night and remembered how Aaliyah was supposed to be in the movie and how similar her and Jordin sound when belting.

  11. Adam October 24, 2014

    Yes new music! There is not enough girls in RnB/urban area nowadays
    Also I love the fact that she can do Pop and Urban

  12. truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) October 24, 2014

    Interesting. Bring it on

  13. Dem Lessors October 24, 2014

    I’m feeling it, I prefer her over Kelly Clarkson and any other American Idol contestants. That being said they’re all flops, they need to end that show.

    • dee October 24, 2014

      Fantasia isnt a flop she sold 3 million records and thats more than jordin sparks so please but jordin is amazing

      • Dem Lessors October 24, 2014

        I like Fantasia but I can’t remember any of her catalogue, same for JHud only that Spotlight song.

    • BossChick October 24, 2014

      Kelly is much more talented and respected then your fave. Oh yeah and she can still get platinum albums and Grammys after 11 years. Carrie Underwood also slays your fave in talent and CURRENT sales and accolades. Fantasia is doing the damn thing in the urban community and also has more talent than your fave. Her current album outsold Britney Jean also. Phillip Phillips too!!!!

      • Dem Lessors October 24, 2014

        Yawn @ people bringing up Britney Jean sales, when it is just one album out if her 16 year solo career. Plus saying that those AI artists are more “respected” is a matter of personal opinion. They all had a shortcut to fame with that show, they didn’t have to travel state to state doing multiple interviews and performances promoting themselves for years. I had to search up this Carrie Underwood woman as well seeing as she’s a local artist with a country music as a gimmick.

      • SMH October 25, 2014

        Britney has more than one album that flopped.

      • SMH October 25, 2014

        Stop it. Britney has more than one album that flopped. And right now Carrie Underwood is a far bigger seller and far more relevant than Britney. Nice try tho.

  14. Renzo October 24, 2014

    I’m not convinced. This isn’t the lane for her. Her voice will probably sound good over a slower knock but this isn’t it. Jordin is cute and bubbly and her music should reflect that. I’m not saying do some Korny Perry mess, but something bubbler like early 2000s Mariah…

  15. Igu21yeah October 24, 2014

    Jordin Sparks is a DIVA!
    You guys like it OR NOT haha Try to due better than her so. ohhh… U CAN’T. 😀

    I CAN’T WAIT TO HEAR HER NEW MUSIC! SO EXCITED ABOUT ALL THIS COMING!

    JORDIN GONNA HIT! ♥

  16. #BuyArtpop October 24, 2014

    slay Jordin sis. Played dis clip about 50 times.
    Can’t wait until preorders r out.
    Miss Sparks serving sexiness aswell

  17. Impact October 24, 2014

    I’m sick of the word “urban.” It’s either R&B or Hip Hop. Kill that corny watered down “urban” tag. What the f*** is that is even supposed to mean anyway?

  18. TheElusiveLamb October 24, 2014

    If she does it, I hope it’s just singles. I would love to hear ballads from her. I also hope she doesn’t try force her new image on us, and it comes off natural and s***.

  19. MISHKA October 24, 2014

    I used to love Jason and Jordin together but it was about dang time that love story ended so she could stop wasting her best years playing wifey.

    Unless Ne-Yo is the one writing those urban songs for her, I suggest she sticks to pop songs like “Battlefield”.

    Chris Brown should invite her to his upcoming tour, we need a new live version of “No Air”

    You won American Idol Jordin, you belong to the main stage with the other divas. Focus on your career, and get those hits and awards.

  20. Beychild October 24, 2014

    Some of Yall want her to keep doing that kiddy pop s*** !
    She is 24 let her do her s***. Plus half the stuff on pop radios nowadays is a bit crappy.
    Also she worked with great producers including Sage the Gemini

  21. FutureCIARA October 25, 2014

    She looks sooo old in that pic!

  22. #idontseeher October 25, 2014

    Jordin is very pretty and a sweet girl but this is really not her at all… like ew, it sounds fake, she needs to just stick to what works for her. I also feel she doesn’t know who she is as an artist. HOTMESS… sorry love, but get you sh*t together, stop trynna be rihanna or beyonce, we already have those.

    • Araic! October 26, 2014

      Why everyone compare girls that try an upbeat route to Rihanna and Beyonce? Even Tinashe and Ariana were compared to them.
      Yes she is sweet but she tried this style before with SOS and other songs
      It’s nothing new to her. At least she is not miley twerking everything and doing wild things
