Singer/Songwriter Sparkle makes her return to music after a 10 year hiatus &
and why her song "So Bad" makes her feel so good...
CHICAGO, IL - R&B songstress, Sparkle made her triumphant return to the R&B
world with the filming of her new music video, “So Bad” that is sure to
recapture the hearts of her legion of fans. Sparkle on set beams with excitement
as she films her first music video in over 10 years. Sparkle burst onto the
music scene in a HUGE way under the musical guidance of R. Kelly in 1998 with
the smash hit, “Be Careful” that spent six consecutive weeks at #1 on the Hot
R&B Airplay charts.
Be Careful was followed by a string of other hits that same year that
catapulted Sparkle to R&B stardom. Fast forwarding to 2012, Sparkle wants to let
all her fans know that the single “So Bad” makes her feel the complete opposite,
so good in fact! Sparkle’s in a creative place in her life again musically and
sees nothing but positive things on the horizon so the track shouldn’t mislead
listeners to think life isn’t great for Sparkle because in fact it is. “It’s an
upbeat track with a funky beat to it. It is definitely some of my best work and
I couldn’t be more proud of what I have accomplished with this single” Sparkle
says in an interview.
Much like any artist in today’s music industry, controversy has plagued
Sparkle’s career but that same controversy wasn’t enough to keep Sparkle from
doing what she loves most. She’s focused on what made her fans fall in love with
her initially and that’s music. On the set of “So Bad” everyone felt the
positive energy from Sparkle and her unrelentless desire to give the absolute
best work possible. Many may wonder, what took Sparkle ten years to jump back on
the music scene but timing is everything. “The time was right and we had an
amazing catalogue of music to share with the world, so I got the wheels rolling
again, says Sparkle.
Soon to hit the promotional trail to speak with media and do interviews, Sparkle
is very optimistic about a smooth transition back into the hearts of millions.
Fans have been very loyal since the last project and Sparkle hasn’t taken that
loyalty for granted. She dedicates this album to those hardcore fans that stood
by her during the difficult times. For a listen at “So Bad” go to her on twitter
