Three months after winning American Idol 6, Jordin Sparks has signed a record deal with Jive Records, a division of Sony BMG, in conjunction with Simon Cowell’s 19Recordings. For the past decade, Jive has represented Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears, whose fanbase was in line with where Jordin’s will likely be.
“American Idol has truly been a life altering experience,” Jordin said. “Signing with 19Recordings/Jive and Barry Weiss and his great team is hopefully the beginning of another dream opportunity for me to deliver the kind of meaningful music I love. I can’t wait to share this next chapter of my story with all the fans that have supported me so far.”
Jordin’s first single, Tattoo, will debut on August 27th, with a November release date set for the album.
