Jessica Sanchez Talks Upcoming Album

Jessica Sanchez on American Idol 2012

American Idol Season 11 runner-up Jessica Sanchez is in The Philippines with fellow alum Colton Dixon this week for a Valentine’s Day concert and during a press event, the songbird revealed some more details about her upcoming album.

Jessica has said that what was saw on American Idol wasn’t exactly who she really was as an artist. She promises that her album is 100 percent Jessica Sanchez.

“It’s weird to sing about things that I’ve never experienced in my life,” Jessica said referring to the covers she had to do on Idol. “Here in the new album which is already finished, I get to be more myself. The album will be more radio-friendly and will be youthful.”

And she says the album isn’t just ballads, which she caught some criticism from during last season’s American Idol.

“It will show the more fun, more pop side of me,” Jessica said. “While there are a couple of ballads, it’s mostly all about music you can move and dance to.”
