Jordin Sparks has dropped some great music in 2013 but we’re still no closer to her official comeback single. At least the American Idol winner is helping us through the drought with gorgeous buzz tracks like “Chocolate Brown Eyes” and “11:11 (Wish)”, which she shared with fans today (November 11) via Twitter.
The thoughtful, emotion-charged Salaam Remi production begins with Jordin declaring: “It’s 11:11 and the world is winding down” before getting deep into her feelings with lyrics like “I wish I was perfect enough for you, I wish I was flawless just like you”.
“11:11 (Wish)” is further proof that the 23-year-old means business this time around. The minimal R&B route is a great fit for her sublime vocals and she’s finally working with collaborators that understand her talent.
