American Idol season 6 winner Jordin Sparks dropped her new single “Unknown” a few weeks ago. The ballad is her first new song in four years. The singer also dropped a video on Instagram alongside her thoughts about what the song means to her in these “trying times.” Check it out below.
Music has always helped me through trying times in my life & I wrote this song with @jdoddwadd back in February based off of my own experiences…but it’s taken on a whole new meaning these past few weeks. I hope you can close your eyes and let this song take you where you need to go and release. Cry, scream, hug someone you love (if you can), thank God for another day…know that we’ll get through this together.
@_danaisaiah and I marched yesterday in Hollywood. It was so beautiful to see the people from every walk of life come together and rise in solidarity with and for the black community.
Sending so much love to those who feel the burden and heavy weight of what’s been going on. Use it to propel yourself forward in action. SPEAK UP FOR WHATS RIGHT EVEN IF YOUR VOICE SHAKES. It seems strange to mention, but if you’ve been touched by this song, it’s available everywhere. Nothing else to say but I hope it helps heal. ?? #amplifymelanatedvoices
