It's been six long years since Jordin Sparks' last album was released. Luckily for fans, the American Idol singer, who is currently a brand ambassador for NFL Women’s Apparel, is planning on releasing her third studio album some time this year!

Jordin recently went through a very public breakup with Jason Derulo and the details were extremely heartbreaking. Instead of wallowing in self-pity, the singer decided to stay busy and focus on her new music – everything that she's been through since her last album release will be in her music.

"This July will be six years and I’ve grown a lot since I was 19 when Battlefield came out," she EXCLUSIVELY tells us. "I just turned 25, so that gap is such a huge time to grow. I’ve learned so much, I’ve been through a bunch of different things."

"I’ve changed and learned a lot. I’ve been writing a lot more. I guess I would say it’s just growth, but also at this time in my life right now, I just want to have fun! I just want my fans to have fun with me. And I want them to dance to it. When the [more upbeat] songs come on, I want them to just be like 'OMG this is my song!'"

We seriously can't wait to hear what she's been working on!
