'Idol 6' champ Jordin Sparks' debut album drops, has a "personal feel"


By Christopher Rocchio, 11/20/2007 

Jordin Sparks' self-titled debut album hits the shelves today, and it apparently contains a few tracks that are personal to the American Idol sixth-season champ.

"I co-wrote a song called 'Freeze' and there's another song called 'Worth the Wait' that I co-wrote," Sparks told OK! Weekly.

"Those two are very personal to me because 'Freeze' is about freezing the moment and memorizing every detail and trying to remember everything about that time, which really applies to what I'm going through because everything has gone by so fast and I can't remember some of the stuff that I've done," she continued.  "'Worth the Wait' is about when that one person comes it's worth it. I'm glad you waited for me and I waited for you. That song's really personal too."

The 17-year-old Glendale, AZ native -- who was the youngest Idol winner in the show's history -- said she was able to work-in her commitment to abstinence as part of the songwriting collaboration process for "Wait for You."

"I did take a stand to remain pure until I was married," she told OK!.  "They were like, 'What do you want to write about?' and I was like, 'Can we write about that, but not so in-your-face?' It's about a girl saying, 'Wait for me. It'll be worth it. Wait until I'm ready.' It's a pretty song. I'm really glad I got it on there."

Sparks said remaining abstinent until married isn't difficult because she just keeps "thinking how great it's going to be to give my heart fully to that one guy once he comes along, instead of handing my heart in pieces to different guys."

"It makes sense to me. It's very important to me," Sparks told OK!.  "I didn't date before the show -- and I still haven't been on my first date yet anyway -- so I don't really know what I'm missing. I'm like, 'It's okay,' and I feel like it's important for me and how I feel about myself to just remain that way."

With her debut album on the shelves, Sparks is looking forward to whatever her career in the music industry -- as well as life -- throws at her.

"I hope I will have been successful, sold a couple million records, maybe have a couple Grammys, have a really loving boyfriend or family, depending on what happens," she told OK!.  "I don't know! I want to be happy in five to 10 years."
