"Battlefield" was Jordin Sparks debut single off of her sophomore album of the same name.
The song was released in May of 2009 and eventually it went all the way to #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #6 on the Pop Songs chart. "Battlefield" reaching the Top 10 helped Jordin set a record, Wikipedia states, "...making Sparks the only American Idol contestant to have her first five singles reach the top 20 in the United States."
Battlefield, the album, peaked at #7 on Billboard 200 chart.
Jordin Sparks was the winner of the 6th season of American Idol. She was only 17 when she won and still remains the youngest winner ever. The runner up from season six was Blake Lewis. Remember him?
According to Wikipedia, "Battlefield" was originally meant for Christina Aguilera and then it was shopped around to Rihanna and Chris Brown as a duet. Rihanna and Chris Brown had a very public falling out and their relationship fell apart. Then the song was given to Jordin Sparks.
