Jordin Sparks Announces New Single “Red Sangria”
EDIT: The post has been updated with Jordin’s “Red Sangria.” Check out the banger below.
Well, here’s some good news! Jordin Sparks is returning to the music scene on July 31 with a new single called “Red Sangria.” The American Idol winner used the hashtag #JS4, so I guess we’re finally getting the long-awaited followup to 2015’s Right Here Right Now. (The title track was a bop). Where has she been? Doing real-life things like getting married and having a baby. Jordin took the first step towards a comeback in 2019 by releasing a joint EP with Elijah Blake called 1990 Forever and then dropped a pretty, R&B ballad called “Unknown” earlier this year.
From the snippet of “Red Sangria,” it sounds like the 30-year-old is about to drop a banger. Fingers crossed that the song takes off because R&B/pop is a better place with Jordin in it. Her self-titled debut album ranks as one of the better post-Idol offerings in the franchise’s history (“Tattoo” and “No Air” are ’00s classics), while “Battlefield” — the song — stands out as one of Ryan Tedder’s best ballads along with Beyoncé’s “Halo,” Leona Lewis’ “Bleeding Love” and Kelly Clarkson’s “Already Gone.” See her announcement post below.
