Listen to Jordin Sparks fall in love on her new track, “Skipping A Beat.”
Jordin Sparks is mad in love with her beau, Jason Derulo, and it sounds like all of those googly eyed feelings have made their way on to her brand-new jam, “Skipping A Beat.” Now, we must admit that Jordin’s “Battlefield” was one of our favorite songs of 2009 (maybe 2010, too), so anything post-”Battefield” is gonna have to work very hard to win our approval. And while we still miiiiight still pick “Battlefield” over “Skipping A Beat,” that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate Jordin’s ode to Jason, who, by the way, is said to have dedicated his song “The Other Side” to Jord.
Listen to Jordin Sparks’ “Skipping A Beat” after the jump.
Set to a simple, vaguely old-school ’90s R&B track, Jordin’s “Skipping A Beat” sees the “American Idol” winner singing about her man, and how she’s 24/7 ride or die: “You’re my lover, you’re my friend, you’re my gangsta.” While we totally appreciate the ultra-romantic lyrics and that catchy “humming” hook, we’re not entirely convinced that this is Jordin’s most progressive offering to date. (We’re loyal to 2009 like that.) But whatever — Jordin did recently post an adorable Instagram video of her serenading Jason, so we’ll just have to take back what we said! “Skipping A Beat”/ Jordin + Jason 4ever!
