Listen to Jordin Sparks upcoming single “Tattoo” at AOL Music.
Blake Lewis, the beat-boxing runner-up to Jordin Sparks on the sixth season of American Idol has been signed to 19 Recordings/Arista Records. He is already recording an album with producers from JR Rotem to Sean Kingston, due to be released at the end of the year.
Clive Davis says of Lewis, “Blake has a strong music sensibility and knows who he is and what his music should represent. His collaborators are all knocked out by him.”
Blake has already recorded at least 8 songs, and I’m hearing that the stuff is GREAT. Blake will release his album sometime in November.
ETA: Original press release from Arista, pulled from comments.
I’ll have more on Chris and Jordin’s tunes later today…
