Jordin Sparks is opening up about her decision to release the diss track about her ex-boyfriend Jason Derulo, "How Bout Now."  

In a new interview with E! News, the singer admits she was "nervous" about including the song on her recent mixtape because of the specific references made to their relationship. She told E!, "I was nervous to put it out there because no one had ever heard me like this before."

She also explained to E!:

"Every day was different and every day something new came out [during writing and recording sessions], and that day I was having one of those days where I was like, 'I'm just going to do it and I want my fans to hear this side of me. They need to hear it.' My fans wanted to hear something but at the same time it wasn't really planned and I just went into the studio and whatever came out, came out." 

Now, Jordin says she's "probably in the best place [she's] been in years." And as for dating, she says she's focusing on her careers and doesn't "have time for distractions like that."
