It's officially spring and summer is just around the corner. You know what that means: It's beach season!
Jordin Sparks obviously got the memo. She surfaced over the Easter weekend looking svelte in a throwback bikini. The songstress joined her main man, Jason Derulo, in Vegas as he hosted the grand opening party for TAO Beach, according to E! News.
The hot couple, who has been going strong for nearly three years, partied the weekend away and had plenty to celebrate. In addition to what Derulo called "kicking off summertime right" at TAO Beach, the duo wished Sparks' father (former NFL player, Phillippi Sparks) a happy birthday over a fancy dinner at TAO Asian Bistro, and danced the night away at the "Talk Dirty" singer's official album release party at TAO Nightclub.
Sparks posted a selfie on Instagram explaining the story behind the unique bikini she sported to the TAO Beach kick-off. "This bathing suit is Pan Dulce from the mid 90's," she wrote. "My parents owned a tanning salon for a bit & when they closed it, I kept all the extra suits. They didn't fit me then but they sure do now!"
This isn't the first time Sparks has posted a bikini pic on social media, but this time around, she is definitely feeling the self-love. "For me, this was HUGE," she said of walking the red carpet scantily clad. "I'm still learning more about my health and body confidence every day. I always want to keep growing! Some of the pics might look crazy & that's okay... I've come a long way from where I was! I love my life! I love who I am & who I'm becoming!!!"
The American Idol winner is most likely referring to her very public weight loss over the past several years. After her Idol Season 6 victory, Sparks was inspired to shed weight and announced in August 2012 that she had lost 50 pounds. "I knew I had a long road ahead of me," she said. "I was barely working out and my diet was a mess."
Whatever the "Battlefield" singer is doing is working. She's got it going on!
