Ranking ‘American Idol’ Winner Jordin Sparks’ Best Songs
Before Jordin Sparks stepped into the Dancing With The Stars ballroom, she had an interesting music career. Let’s revisit some of her hit tracks, from solo releases to song collaborations.
This song was created when the youngest American Idol winner teamed up with an international pop superstar. “Celebrate” is Jordin Sparks’ iconic duet with Whitney Houston, released in 2012. Apparently, this is the last song that Houston recorded before her unfortunate demise, making this more meaningful and emotional for Sparks.
9. “Double Tap”
“Double Tap” is Sparks’ first song on her 2015 album, Right Here Right Now. This track featured 2 Chainz, who added a cool touch with his rap verses. This release has a notable Janet Jackson vibe.
8. “Next To You”
People who are tempted to upgrade their relationship to the next level definitely resonate with “Next To You.” Sparks released this track back in 2007 but its lyrics remains to be undying for some.
7. “I Am Woman”
“I Am Woman” is perhaps Sparks’ own take to women empowerment. This dance-pop song is surely electrifying for females who seek to embody confidence like a real girl boss.
6.”Art of Love”
Sparks created “Art of Love” with fellow talent show winner, Guy Sebastian. This track was released in 2009 and peaked in Australian and New Zealand Music Charts.
As the title track to Sparks’ 2009 album, “Battlefield” is arguably one of her most popular releases ever. Its snazzy electro-pop vibe quickly became a jam, prompting people to emote with its beats. This sensational track peaked at number 10 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and was a hit in Canadian Music Charts rising to number five.
4. “This is My Now”
There is no way that we could forget “This Is My Now” in Sparks’ best songs of all time. This liberating song is her first official single, written by Scott Krippayne and Jeff Peabody. Remarkably, Sparks sang this song in her final performance on American Idol.
3. One Step at a Time
As the third and final single of Jordin Sparks, this song makes a great advice for people who rush into love. This 2009 hit rose to number 17 in US Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at number two in New Zealand Music Charts.
“Tattoo” is Sparks’ first track in her self-titled album. Released in 2007, “Tattoo” peaked at number eight in US Billboard Hot 100. Outside America, this song attracted a lot of fans, consequently adding to Sparks’ global hits.
1. “No Air”
Throughout Sparks’ career, “No Air” was the track that reached the highest ranking among her song releases. This song featured Chris Brown’s impeccable vocals, perfectly blending with Sparks’ tone. “No Air” was number three on the US Billboard Hot 100, number one in New Zealand and UK Music Charts.
