New Music: Jordin Sparks 'They Don't Give'
Jordin Sparks announced recently that she would be dropping a new song from 'Right Here Right Now,' each week, before its release. This week, Jordin Sparks released 'They Don't Give,' which was produced by Babyface.
Each week, I've become more appealed to 'Right Here Right Now,' as the singer continues to release promising numbers from the album. Based upon Jordin's weekly releases, this is certainly a favorite of mine.
I loved that Sparks worked with Babyface, as they are few producers in the industry who contain a unique sound. (Back then, it was easy to determine who produced a particular song, as each producer had its own sound) Babyface captures a nostalgic sound for 'They Don't Give.' along with a current feel (like his work from 'Love, Marriage, & Divorce.') They are a few producers who can capture a raw sound for a love ballad, so I think the production is very beautiful.
Jordin Sparks sounds angelic, and I love the bridge. She sounds very passionate, as she sings. Also, did anyone else think she sounded like Monica when she sings, "About Love," during the outro of the song? Well done Jordin! Hopefully, Jordin continues to experiment with an R&B sound, as it suits the singer well vocally. She's definitely convinced me to purchase the album, which is scheduled for release on August 21st (ugh, why so close to 'back to school' though?)
