New Mixtape: Jordin Sparks – ‘#ByeFelicia’


Jordin Sparks sheds her good girl image on her first mixtape #ByeFelicia, presented by L.A. Leakers. The “American Idol” champ explores new territory on the nine tracks, her first project since 2009′s Battlefield.

She calls out the Instagram stalkers on “Double Tap” featuring 2 Chainz and takes shots at her ex-boyfriend Jason Derulo on her remix to Drake’s “How Bout Now.”

“There’s a little part of me in every single [track],” said Jordin. “But because it’s been so long and because I’ve been working so long, it has been kind of like a perfectionist mentality. Life is too short. This stuff is great. I feel good about it. I’m confident in it, I love what it’s saying, and I think people will be able to relate to that.”

Rap-Up TV: Jason Derulo Readies ‘Talk Dirty’ Album

With his 2 Chainz-assisted single “Talk Dirty” closing in on No. 1, Jason Derulo is capitalizing on its success with an album of the same name. Fresh off the stage at Power 106′s “Valentine’s Crush” concert in L.A., a shirtless Jason shared details about Talk Dirty, the full-length U.S. version of last year’s EP Tattoos, which will arrive on April 15.

“When I was making this album, I wanted to go in and experiment and do something that was just totally different and off the wall,” he told Rap-Up TV.

The album will include “Vertigo,” a sultry collaboration with girlfriend Jordin Sparks, which also appeared on his EP.

For Valentine’s Day, the 24-year-old heartthrob surprised his lady by booking a hotel suite and filling it with 10,000 orange roses.

“She was shocked,” said Jason, who bought Jordin a BMW for Christmas. “I was shocked when I came in the room too ’cause I ain’t never seen 10,000 flowers in the room like that, so it was kinda crazy.”

So is his next gift an engagement ring? “When that time is right,” he laughed.
