Jordin Sparks recently talked about her new flame and her new album. According to the singer, at 25, she is still figuring a lot of things out, but she is at her happiest “right here right now.”

Speaking with E news, Sparks shared that her new album is finally going to be released soon, which she had been working on for the past six years. She said that over that span of time, it is not only her music that grew and developed, she personally undergone “a growth spurt” where she learned a lot of herself. She said the new album would showcase how much she matured from 19 to 25-years old. "Nineteen to 25 is a pretty big growth spurt and I've been able to grow, learn, and experiment with different parts of my voice, and I feel like people will really get to hear that on this album,” she said. 

Despite still trying to figure things out, she also shared how happy she is at her current state - with a new boyfriend and an upcoming album. She said that people at their 20s is at the stage of figuring themselves out, and she is not exempted from this.  She talked about her new boyfriend, rapper Sage the Gemini and shared that she felt cherished by him. “He cherishes me, he just makes me feel so loved, and I feel like that's how anybody would feel in a relationship,” Sparks shared. This does not mean they do not have their ups and downs, considering they are both busy artists. Sparks however, credited their determination to make things work as well as the power of technology for their still ongoing sweet relationship. She said as long as something is desired, one will do everything to get it, explaining how she and Sage fly back and forth just to visit each other on their off days. 

While she can certainly belt out tunes, considering she won “American Idol” eight years ago, Sparks shared that the songs in her new album “Right Here Right Now,” are going to be much better now because she can actually feel what she is singing. She said on her previous album, all she did was emote the songs she was signing. Now that she had a lot of experiences of love, she can sing them better.

It can be remembered that Sparks dated Jason DeRulo for three years before calling it quits on September 2014. Interestingly, DeRulo himself recently talked of their relationship and said he does not regret a thing. The “Want to Want Me” singer told Du Jour magazine that he was in that relationship “for a reason” so there is nothing to feel sad about. He however admitted that it feels good for him to be alone right now.
