What's the story?
There's a reason why Jordin Sparks won the American Idol title: She's a talented singer with a lot of passion. Unfortunately, most of that passion is missing in TATTOO, the first single off her first album. The lyrics tell of love and longing, with words that are fine for any age.
Is it any good?
The generic synthesized background beat and random yelping seem odd and out of place against Sparks' pleasant-enough voice, making the song just fall flat. And lyrics like "You're on my heart just like a tattoo/Just like a tattoo/I'll always have you" just add to the blah factor. Let's hope the rest of her album allows this songstress to live up to her potential.
