During a press conference in Manila, Jessica Sanchez, dropped a few details about her upcoming album. The American Idol runner-up is in the Philippines to perform a Valentines Day concert on Wednesday, with special guest, fellow season 11 alum, Colton Dixon. Read on for more!
The singer said to look out for a track called “Definitely,” which she plans to perform when she returns to American Idol this season. Could the tune be the first single off of her debut album? She told reporters gathered at a press conference on Monday to expect the first single in February with the album–which she has finished recording–to be released in May.
Jessica’s debut album will feature collaborations with songwriter/producer Harvey Mason Jr. (Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown, Britney Spears, and Jennifer Hudson), artists Ne-Yo and Mary J. Blige, and Toby Gad (Beyoncé, Fergie, Alicia Keys, and Kelly Clarkson).
On her album, which will have a “youthful” vibe, Jessica says, “It’s weird to sing about things that I’ve never experienced in my life. Here in the new album which is already finished, I get to be more myself. The album will be more radio-friendly and will be youthful.”
“It will show the more fun, more pop side of me. While there are a couple of ballads, it’s mostly all about music you can move and dance to,” she added.
Jessica is also looking forward to her guest starring role on Glee. “I never acted before, but I’m sure it will be a fun experience. And I’m really looking forward to it,” she said.
