Maybe If Blake Lewis And Ryan Tedder Did Sex, Jordin Sparks' Album Would Sell Better?

Well, you never know! Billboard reports that Jordin Sparks' self-titled album has entered the chart at #10 after selling 119,000 copies -- the lowest entry and sales figures for any American Idol winner yet. Meanwhile, after the holiday weekend, the High School Musical 2 soundtrack jumped from #14 to #6, and is now the year's best-selling album.

At any rate, as the title of this post suggests, Ryan Tedder and Blake Lewis would make one fine pairing. Here's a clip of the two blond foxes in the studio working on Blake's album, Audio Day Dream (out Tuesday), this past summer. And, hey, Steph Jones in the middle can watch.

    I really want to like Jordin more, but her CD just isn't that great. I am surprised it didn't do better; but I think that it is the music industry's fault. You rarely hear about something coming out unless you really comb the web. Let us know you are releasing a CD, and we will buy it! There is so much that comes out each week, how are we expected to keep track of everyone?!

    As for Blake... well, that beat boxing just sucks to me. Sorry, I had to say it! (especially because he can actually sing!)

    Hmmm, i like about 40% of Jordin's album, but you're right, those sales figures are disappointing on a 2nd week McFly chart placing level. I'm still eager for Blake though. he can snuggle next to shayne on my cd rack. How come Frapps leaks months early yet no Blake L yet??

    I usually don't disagree with Duane, but I love the beatboxing. Blake's the whole enchilada...vocals, showmanship, and he's not too bad to look at, either. And I'd ALSO buy the video with Blake and Ryan. It wouldn't be high class, but damn it'd be fun!

    Obligatory "yay Blake" comment here!

    Oh wait, I guess there actually is Blake news--his official site is now up and running! Which would be more exciting if there were more than five pictures of him on it, but I'll take what I can get. The video--not that video, the music video--comes out two days after the album does, on December 6. Why? I don't know...

    Jordin's "One Step At A Time" is great! So pop.

    I'm still in love with Blake. Seeing him on that album cover's bringing back all those happy memories now!

    I'm not sure who will be the lesser of two evils - Justin Timberlame or Blake Lewis.... And I'm afraid to find out

    I feel bad for Jordin! The album overall is not that bad--No Air and Shy Boy are pretty good. I'd have pegged her to sell more than Fantasia or Taylor, tho.

    Blake's CD is coming out next week and I've not heard much buzz about it since those tracks leaked. He's sure to sell more than Jordin did. Poor girl...

    Personally, I though Blake would have outshone Jordin by this point, but "Break Another" (Blake's single) hasn't really gone anywhere, and while Jordin's album kinda tanked (so far), her single's almost in the Top 10. Crazy Idol shit.

    I would rather poke something in my eye and ear than listen to that damned beatboxing anymore. When he started doing in the video, I swear to god my eye started to involuntarily twitch. We get it. You can beatbox....so what? In recorded music, we have machines do that...

    Sorry...not buying it. EVER

    I am in love with both albums!

    Jordin's has so much diversity while Blake's is so fresh to the ears.

    I wish both the best!!

    Oh, Chris R and Ryan makes a better couple. ;)
