Product Description

2007 debut album from the youngest winner ever on American Idol. This self-titled debut features songs written and produced by the industry's hottest creative talents and features the first single 'Tattoo'.

Amazon.com

Liking Jordin Sparks, American Idol's season six winner, comes instinctively. How many 17-year-olds are as self-possessed, as big-smiling, as committed to having a good time and keeping it real? Probably none. Liking Sparks' music has been a different story for fans anticipating her debut CD, though. Her gut-busting Idol performance of "I (Who Have Nothing)" was possibly her only prime-time goosebump generator, yet she's seen an instant progression to diva-dom, as chronicled in reports that found her heading into the studio alongside pop/R&B heavy-hitters Bloodshy, Avant, the Underdogs, and others. Was it a little soon for the relatively green Sparks to be throwing off such big-league, beat-heavy sparks? Well, not hardly, it turns out. The ballads here--songs like "Next To You" and "Just For the Record"--reach out at times with overeager sincerity (forgivable!), but the funkier numbers--"Young and In Love" and the Prince-flecked "Shy Boy," especially--slam home her positives. Jordin may still be a juvie, but she's a bona fide pop star. She earns her props as convincingly here as she did on TV. --Tammy La Gorce

Customer Reviews

Jordin Sparks has a beautiful voice and is incredibly talented!
Corinne G-Rivas
This seems like it would not sound out of place on the most recent Britney Spears album.

First off, who knew a record company would put a girl on the cover with clothes on? Jordin Sparks on American Idol wasn't the best singer ... "Living on a Prayer" still causes night sweats, but what she had going for her was a killer personality. She was like your little/big sis who was just so eager and happy to learn and be there that you had to root for her on some level. And when she belted out Bassey's classic "I (Who Have Nothing)" with enough theatrical flair and pitch perfect notes that would make Mariah Carey pay attention you knew the girl had potential.

This album gives glimmers of that potential. She doesn't go for any power notes at all on this disc, on every track she gives just enough power to let you know that she's able to sing. What the disc is heavy on is R&B/Hip-hop created by today's top producers. It gives her album a current sound without the need to inspect the disc for trashy lyrics you don't want your kids to hear. The song "Young and in Love" is a great example. It's stuttery hand claps and cute ditty chorus will get stuck in your head the same way Britney's "Toxic" did not too long ago -- it's done by the same production team.

The first single "Tattoo" is done by the same producers who gave Beyonce her smash "Irreplaceable." It carries the same: acoustic guitar and drums. The shocker on the disc is duet with Chris Brown "No Air." To say that Sparks out sings him is an understatement, but there is a sugary sweetness to the song that'll work for parents and kids alike.

This is a teen/tween album -- and it should be. Sparks is only 17 and the youngest American Idol winner. It almost has everything her personality had but the album lacks any sort of power behind it. There aren't any show stopping tunes here. But I must give her credit for knowing her image and wanting to make something universal in a time when being a female singer means you can double as a suitcase girl on "Deal or No Deal."

I really like Jordin Sparks. She's young, fresh, gorgeous and bubbly, and most importantly for this review, she has an amazing voice.

She's also (at least when making this CD) only 17 years old, and I think that is the key to understanding and enjoying this album. The themes are growing up and learning about love, done in R&B-flavored pop. The songwriters and producers wisely gave Jordin material that she could identify with and sing about from experience, and I think Jordin did a great job of connecting with the feeling of the songs. I feel about 17 listening to the CD, which is not a bad thing - kind of nostalgiac. If you didn't like being 17, well...(sorry.)

Key tracks:
*No Air - Duet with Chris Brown, rumored to be the 2nd single. Nice interesting beat, strong melody, really catchy.
*Freeze - My favorite track, midtempo, a little different melody than you'd expect, interesting use of some vocal effects that don't overpower the song.
*Next To You - Traditional pop ballad but extremely well done.
*See My Side - Almost sounds like a lullaby - fragile melody and spare production make Jordin's vocals stand out, her voice is mainly in the higher range for the song which I think really reflects the sentiment of the lyrics.

There are a couple of Britney-ish electropop tracks that might've been added to grit up the album a little but in my opinion they don't work as well as the rest. My main criticism for the album is that while each song is nice on its own, taken all together (being mostly midtempo) they start to sound similar.

Overall, sweet and light pop that's still definitely enjoyable. I wouldn't mind kicking back and spending afternoons with this album. This is what Jordin should be singing at this point in her life. I do see the potential for great things here and will be looking forward to future music from her! (4/5)

What kind of album do you get when you give a 17-year-old powerhouse singer an assortment of catchy hooks and well-written lyrics? American Idol-winner Jordin Sparks' self-titled effort, that's what. Since wetting fans' appetites with the Stargate-produced "Tattoo" in August, Sparks is looking to inch her way into the pop music scene with her debut.

Although not every track on `Jordin Sparks' is worthy of the teen sensation's vocals, the vast majority are. Obviously, lead single "Tattoo" is a standout thanks to its masterful production, but where Sparks truly shines is the ballad "Permanent Monday." She uses her signature emotional vibrato and power notes on this Christina Aguilera-esque lovesick track. "Monday" could easily dominate the Adult Contemporary circuit if given the chance.

Where Sparks has the hottest potential hit on her hands is her duet with Chris Brown, "No Air." The production on "Air" is comparable to anything Timbaland could whip up, and the bridge is one of the busiest, most beautiful "disasters" ever heard because the two teens' vocals harmonize perfectly despite the complexity.

Another gem on `Sparks' is "Freeze," as its instrumentation bears a striking resemblance to Nelly Furtado's "Say It Right." Sparks offers an interesting scenario on "God Loves Ugly," as she takes a stand against discrimination against people not seen as "ideal-looking." The lyrics on "Ugly" are the best on the entire album, and really strikes a chord no matter what the listener thinks of their body type.

The album also provides a variety of Top 40-ready, catchy mid- to up-tempo tracks like "Now You Tell Me," "One Step At a Time," and "Just For the Record," which are all harmless and age-appropriate for Sparks.

It's not Jordin's fault
CLearly you don't know much about marketing and the music industry. A singer is as only as good as his/her writers, and if you have poor writing skills or a poor team of writers, you could be the most talented person but not do well thanks to the crappy writing.

What do you think of Jordin's CD?
I've been forcing myself to listen to it over and over again, hoping it will grow on me. I was really looking forward to hearing the Jordin we grew to love on AI, but it seems like she didn't show up to record this album, so we ended up with over-synthesized bubblegum pop. I like... Read More

Blake and Jordin
Don't really know Victor...all I know that if America will buy Britney Spear's new album they'll buy anything, but Jordin and Blake are collectively more talented combined. So...don't really know good luck to them both! I don't think there's any "rivalry competition" but I'd probably be... Read More
