Jordin Sparks Makes A ‘Wish’ With ’11:11′

Though it seems that she's been busier making waves onscreen than in the studio as of late, we can't forget the voice that brought Jordin Sparks into the public consciousness when she was introduced to the world on American Idol. And to be sure that we don't, the singer actress released a freebie for her fans yesterday with "11:11 (Wish)." The track, penned by hot songwriter Elijah Blake and produced by the incomparable Salaam Remi, finds Jordin making a wish at 11:11. But instead of wishing for something trivial, she instead wishes that the object of her affection reciprocated the love that she feels. Jordin's airy vocal here perfectly captures the infatuation she expresses as the haunting production that Salaam provides underscores the slight moodiness of the lyrics nicely. While it's not clear if "11:11" is a taste of what's to come from Jordin's expected third album, it's a nice (and much more grown-up) showing from the singer. Stream the slow jam below and then tell us if you enjoy this more sultry side of Jordin.
