"'Sparkle' came at a moment where I was actually pretty unsure with what was happening in my career. My label was going through a transition and people were let go. Then I parted ways with my management and then I had some things personally going on. It just felt like everything was starting to not work out all at once. I was like, 'This is it? Five years and that's it?'" -- Jordin Sparks
