It's no surprise that Jordin Sparks was new to Shannon's electro classic "Let the Music Play" - after all, she was born years after the 1983 track was a top ten smash on Billboard's Hot 100. But now the 19-year old "American Idol" winner, whose self-titled 2007 debut went platinum, is growing up and branching out from the soulful jams that put her on the map. Sparks' latest, "Battlefield," is released this week, and the first single "S.O.S. (Let The Music Play)," which reworks Shannon's track, finds the the young singer venturing out onto the dancefloor. Exclusively right here on Billboard.com, listen to a special remix of the song by Matt Pendergast.
