HOT SONG

 

Can someone please find Jordin Sparks a good song to sing? Her new single "I Am Woman" (Jive) is such a letdown. No, it's not a remake of the Helen Reddy anthem, despite what the title suggests. And it's not a remake of Kelly Clarkson's "Miss Independent," as the music would suggest. Instead, it's a pale, noisy approximation of them both, with a bit of Beyoncé's "Run the World (Girls)" thrown in. Someone help an Idol out.

-- Glenn Gamboa
