This is a pretty cool tidbit. Jordin Sparks is back on the Hot 100 this week, but NOT as a singer! According to The Hollywood Reporter, she is a co-writer of “The Way,” the debut single by Nickelodeon star, Ariana Grande.
The song was intended for Sparks to record herself, as she tells The Hollywood Reporter: “I wrote it with Sevyn Streeter, Sherrod Lambert and producer Harmony Samuels for my upcoming album. It was definitely written about my love, Jason [Derulo]. We had a blast writing it. Ariana’s team heard it and she loved it! So she cut it. She did an amazing job and she kills it live!”
Pretty awesome development for Jordin. Now she has to release new music of her own. It’s been too long. Check out “The Way” lyric video below:
