Jordin Sparks - Right Here Right Now
Jordin Sparks is back on the music frontier with some music that sparks and excites in many ways.
Her latest album, "Right here, Right now" kicks off on a high with the bounce-to-this "Work from home" featuring B.O.B, and the high powered and claps inspired "1000" featuring J-Doe, helping her bask in some hip-hop inspired beats, and club glory, thus augmenting her make-me-move creds. The vibrant title-track that has some ragga tinged lines excites in a special way.
2Chainz backs her up as they "Double tap" on the mellifluous and paced number that rubs ones emotions the right way. The magnanimous and fresh "Boyz in the hood" has this moving bassline that drives the amazingly driven and inspired track, and will touch your inner parts of your musical soul in a rocking way.
She takes it down a notch and showcases her vocal strength with the powered "Silhouette", "They don't give", and the effective "Left....right" that hits from all sides in the gentlest elatedly way possible. The persuasive and perspicuous "Tell him that I love him" doesn't need anybody to refer its clear message. Sung so well (check out the high notes), it just has the right effect that will strike the point home with less effort.
"Casual Love" has never sounded so gently. Shaggy makes an appearance to help guide this reggae sprinted track, and yes, they bring on the heat. Elijah Blake is featured on "Unhappy", as if to heal the pain on the track that sounds inspired. It so does away with the pain thanks to its spirited delivery.
"11:11" is smooth, gentle, emotive and oh so lovely, and you will not get enough of "100 years" that is worth its weight in gold. 'A 100 years is not enough time with you' goes the sincere track that is convincing and has honesty written all over it.
Jordin clocks the miles on "It ain't you" that is meant to move the body and the heart. Yeah "this one is for all my ladies" she bold states on the remarkable and exuberant track. Review by Mandla Motau
