New York, New York –19 Recordings/Jive Records artist Jordin Sparks is set to release her new single “I Am Woman”. AOL Music exclusively premiered the up-tempo track May 5th and the song will be blasted to pop radio today. The single will also be available at iTunes May 10. The Grammy-nominated singer will perform her “I Am Woman” single on American Idol May 12.
“‘I Am Woman’ is exactly what it means,” Jordin explains about the song title. “I just turned 21, I’m breaking out and the world is my canvas! The song is for me and all the young women who are discovering who they are and are proud of it!” “I Am Woman” was produced and co-written by hit-making producer Ryan Tedder (of the group One Republic) who also produced her Top 10 pop hit “Battlefield” from her 2009 sophomore effort of the same title.
Post-Idol, Jordin’s star has continued to rise. She’s received rave album and concert reviews and has established herself as an accomplished, popular singer in her own right. Jordin’s self-titled platinum 2007 album debut spawned three Top 5 hits on the Pop Singles charts – including “Tattoo,” the Grammy-nominated “No Air” and “One Step At A Time.” Her released singles (including those from her sophomore album) combined have sold over eleven million tracks and ringtones cumulatively.
The 21-year old Glendale, AZ native is also currently featured on the African Cat soundtrack on the song entitled “The World I Knew” and will also join as a special guest on the New Kids on the Block/Backstreet Boys North American summer tour beginning May 25.
