Jordin Sparks, winner of the 6th season of American Idol, returns to the music scene with this epic (Ryan Tedder, obviously) song that is describe by Popjustice as a “monolithic Ryan Tedder R&B extended metaphor rock power ballad”. Her debut album had some great non-idol-ic moments (Shy Boy, Freeze, Overcome, See My Side and No Air), but I won’t say that I was excited about her new single. I read the raving reviews, so I took a listen, and I loved it. Highly recommended. Get it before it goes “mainstream” and loses its feel.
