Jordin Sparks made her way to Ebro In The Morning on Hot 97 yesterday with Ebro, Laura Stylez and Peter Rosenberg, and had a few choice words for the ladies’ favorite rapper/singer when asked if she’d move on from Jason Derulo to him.

So Lira Galore, fear not – Jordin does NOT want your boo Drake!

“I’m probably the only girl in the world that’s not… I just don’t…” Jordin said in response to Drizzy. “You’re not turned on by Drake? He doesn’t do it for you,” Rosenberg replied. “No.”
