Jordin Sparks Takes Shots at Ex-Boyfriend Jason Derulo in New Track
By Meredith B. Kile
In a newly-released remix of Drake's "How Bout Now," Jordin Sparks is taking some shots at her ex, singer Jason Derulo.
Many of the lyrics stay true to Drake's original track, including the chorus, "'Cause I'm up right now, and you suck right now," but Sparks has inserted some very personal anecdotes that are undoubtedly about her relationship with Derulo.
"Remember when you broke your neck and I had to wash your back for ya," Sparks sings, referencing Derulo's tour rehearsal accident in 2012, when he shattered his C-2 vertebrae and was nearly paralyzed.
The 24-year-old American Idol alum has been in the public eye longer than Derulo -- whose first hit single "Whatcha Say" debuted in 2009 -- and seems to think that her ex's recent success changed him.
"Once you blew up, head got big and you started changing," she sings. "Can't believe all the things that you started sayin', like I'm with you for your fame and your name, what?"
