Jordin Sparks shows off a little leg during her performance on Today at Rockefeller Center in New York City on Thursday morning (August 27).
The 25-year-old singer performed “They Don’t Give” off her new album, Right Here, Right Now.
“I’m coming into my own as a woman, artistically. I had to experience love and pain, doubt and fear and all of that stuff, and I feel I was able to put it all in a record,” Jordin dished to Extra the day before.
She added, “I use my voice in a different way, it’s a little softer, I get to use my falsetto in some songs, there’s some vibey songs, turn up songs, some get ready to go to the club songs.”
Jordin Sparks stops by Extra to chat about her new music in Times Square, New York City on Tuesday afternoon (August 25).
The 25-year-old singer chatted earlier with Billboard about her tracks on her new album, Right Here, Right Now.
“‘It Ain’t You.’ DJ Mustard had the beat, and Ty Dolla Sign had already written a song to it, but I was like, ‘There’s no way that I can say these lyrics!’” Jordin dished about the ‘most turned up track’ on the record. “So we rewrote the verses and left the chorus. It’s my response to all those songs that are dissing me as a woman.”
She added about the most sentimental, “’11:11.’ It was inspired by my mom always texting me ‘Make a wish’ at 11:11 in the morning or at night. It’s really sweet when somebody’s thinking of you like that.”
Jordin Sparks shows off her pearly whites during her Right Here, Right Now album signing held at Century 21 Downtown in New York City on Friday afternoon (August 21).
Earlier in the day, the 25-year-old stopped by Bandier for a fun fitness class before more album promo duties.
Speaking with EW, Jordin revealed that one day, you may hear a country album from her!
“I love country music,” she shared. “One day I will do a country album—I will. The timing will just have to be right.”
While we’ll have to wait for a full album, Jordin has already teamed up with Thomas Rhett for a duet called “Playing With Fire”.
“The song itself is beautiful. It’s called ‘Playing With Fire’ and it’s a ballad that’s just so great.” She recorded her parts with Rhett in the studio in Nashville, and received a surprise visitor during the session. “Reba [McEntire] walked in when I was doing my part! She listened to it—that was actually pretty nerve-wrecking, having someone like her listen to your song when it isn’t even finished—but she loved it. I can’t wait for people to hear it.”
Jordin Sparks shines in the spotlight while performing songs from her new album Right Here, Right Now on the Honda Stage at the iHeartRadio Theater earlier this summer in Los Angeles.
For the event, which was broadcast last night (Thursday, August 20), the 25-year-old singer kicked off the night right with her unreleased new track, “Right Here, Right Now”.
“It’s been a long journey so I can’t help but be emotional. So, all I can say is, I’m just grateful to put out this album that I’m extremely proud of & happy you’ll FINALLY be able to hear it. I love you all. I hope you love #RightHereRightNow when you get it! Enjoy! Thank you from the top of my heart,” Jordin wrote on Instagram later that night, thanking her fans.
Jordin is also pictured at her album signing event at the Claim it! Truck parked in front of the Apollo Theater in New York City.
“He’s a great guy. He makes me smile every single day,” Jordin dished to People. “He’s just very low-key and down to Earth as well. We don’t have to always worry about getting up and getting ready or feeling like we have to.”
She added, “He really likes pizza. So I’ve been eating a lot of pizza lately.” So cute!
