Video: Jordin Sparks - Battlefield

There hasn't been much of a fanfare to announce that Jordin "not Jordan" Sparks's amazing new single, Battlefield, is out this week. But it is. And it's amazing... If by amazing you mean "sounds like an 80s power ballad with the saxophone solo edited out".

As part of the underwhelming "will-this-do" marketing campaign, the video was only officially released on Tuesday. It scores an early point by putting Jordin in an actual field (do you see?). But it completely misses the opportunity to include: A battle; Jordin dressed in armour; Men and women running at each other with spears; Harrier jump jets flying overhead; a full-scale recreation of the Normandy landings; a voice-over by Laurence Olivier; a nuclear "event"; that scene from the end of Blackadder Goes Forth; a Pat Benatar cameo.

Watch it if you must.
