Jordin Sparks’ new album, Right Here, Right Now, is due out in May. And yes, it will include a couple of songs inspired by her breakup with Jason Derulo.”Everybody takes experiences from their personal life and puts it in there because that’s how you get the real emotion, that’s how you get the real story,” Jordin tells E! News. “That’s how that one fan that is laying in her room puts on your record and she cries with you because she feels it with you …I’ve always drawn from personal experiences to sing songs.”
While the breakup-inspired songs might have come from a painful place, Jordin’s latest single, “Double Tap,” was inspired by something not nearly as heavy…”So you double-tap to ‘like’ a picture, so there are a couple of ways you could take it,” Jordin explains. “For me, in the song, I take it as a girl knowing that there’s a guy looking at her pictures, but he won’t like them because he doesn’t want her to know. And she’s like ‘I bet you’re not going to double-tap that picture.'”
“Double Tap” is available on iTunes now.
