My only issue with Ciara is her current bf, the rapper Future, has kids with other women already. She's too young and doesn't have kids so I think it's silly for her to be messing with someone sloppy like Future.

|by another poster than OP||reply 9||07/13/2013|
She is so phenomenally talented it's a wonder she's not up there with Rihanna and Beyonce, but rumor has it she was a LOT to deal with in her heyday and burned a ton of bridges with very powerful people.
The Basic Instinct CD was a public embarrassment where she went explicitly against her label and they pulled ALL promo support.
She's having moderate success with this new "era" and LA Reid had to pull every string in the book to do it.
Body Party has hit #25 on the hot 100 (very good for a pure R&B song these days) and with more of a push the single will go gold.
The CD is debuting with around 70k sales, which is not amazing, but not a complete embarrassment either.
The CD itself is nice. It's pleasant enough with a lot of catchy songs. She's not where she was, but she's not completely over, either.
She's been around for so long you forget she's only 27.
And there's nobody around right now that can dance as well as her. NOBODY.
|by another poster than OP||reply 10||07/13/2013|
I think both Rihanna and Ciara are 2 of the better looking under 30 girls in hollwyood now. What I like more about Ciara is A) she's not a crazy druggie (as far as we know) and B) she is a great dancer. She can move better than Beyonce and MUCH better than Rihanna
love this pic
|by another poster than OP||reply 11||07/13/2013|
Yes, she's a great dancer. Doesn't she claim that she isn't a trained dancer? I find that hard to believe.
|by another poster than OP||reply 12||07/13/2013|
Ciara said she was a cheerleader in high school. That would make her flexible.
She does glam and casual chic well.
|by another poster than OP||reply 13||07/13/2013|
She's a perfect example of the manufacture of stars. It's more about whose team is better than who is more talented. (Beyoncé is the Queen of that shit.)
I do like Rihanna's songs because her songwriting/production is good, but if her voice wasn't conducive to autotune she wouldn't be where she is.
She's not that pretty after a few years of hard living and beautiful women are not rare anymore.
|by another poster than OP||reply 14||07/13/2013|
She's been compared to Janet ever since she debuted. She always gives props to Janet for being her #1 inspiration, and she recently said on either the Today show or GMA that Janet is the one artist she'd like to collaborate with.

R15 true. Ciara is the best dancer of her age group. Even though others such as Beyonce and Britney were influenced by Janet in their choreography, it's Ciara who goes out of her way to announce it.

Ciara is far more talented vocally and as a dancer than Rihanna but Riri can put over a song really well, and that's part of why she has so many hits. (Producers arethe main reason, though, with her looks another.)

R25 it's not a short answer lol. It started last year on twitter after Ciara appeared on Fashion Police. It also happened again a few months ago when Ciara started promoting "Body Party" and the press kept asking her about Rihanna.

[quote]Ciara is far more talented vocally and as a dancer than Rihanna
As a dancer, hell yeah, but as a singer, no. Ciara pretty much only has one tone to her register. Rihanna is not the best singer, but given the right track she can belt (i.e. "Diamonds", "We Found Love", "Only Girl In The World", "What Now").
|by another poster than OP||reply 30||07/16/2013|
So Ciara's album will debut at #2, which is really the best they could have hoped for because unfortunately for her, Jay Z also decided to drop his album last week. Clearly she's not a flop like some of her detractors were saying was going to happen.
R30 Rihanna does have a "louder" voice than Ciara but it's by no means pretty. Rihanna has a weird tone. I actually don't think Ciara and Rihanna would be capable of singing each other's songs because their voices are that different and limited.
|by another poster than OP||reply 31||07/17/2013|
I bought her album, party out of pity and I knew someone who worked on her songs. It's well-produced and has good tunes. Sometimes I think the songs tend too much to sex stuff.

R32 ooh any gossip on her from that acquaintance of yours? Or did he not deal directly with her? I'm curious if he has any thoughts on Ciara. Also, I've only heard "Sorry", "Body Party" and "I'm Out". Are any of the other tracks on there standouts?
|by another poster than OP||reply 34||07/17/2013|
|by another poster than OP||reply 35||07/17/2013|
a good week for Ciara indeed: her album debuts at #2 behind Jay-Z, "Body Party" climbs even higher on the hot 100 to #22 and her next single "I'm Out" bumps up to #44 in it's 2nd week after being released.
|by another poster than OP||reply 36||07/18/2013|
r34, there are much, MUCH better songs on that CD than "I'm Out."
Super Turnt Up is CLASSIC Ciara. I think it should be a 3rd single. DUI, Overdose, and Livin It Up (also w/Nicki) are good songs, too.
|by another poster than OP||reply 37||07/18/2013|
I'm not feeling "I'm Out". I like the idea of a positive break up song but the beat and vocals don't sound good to me. Minaj of course doesn't help matters.

This album news is great for CiCi. People had pretty much written her off, but if not for Jay Z, she would have had a #1 pop album.
|by another poster than OP||reply 39||07/18/2013|
I find it odd her label didn't pick a different week when no one "big" was releasing anything. Clearly she was never going to beat Jay Z but she would have stood a chance against other recent releases.

glad to see she's back on track.

R41 Ciara came out just after the time in music when it the "street glam" style peaked for girls. It had crossed over to pop and Ciara's timing was perfect. That trend is over and I think that's why she disappeared for a bit. Rihanna started doing the edgy thing and Beyonce was able to imitate any style successfully. At least for now, Ciara has proven her career is not dead.
RIP to Amerie, Brandy, Mya, Teairra Mari, Cassie and the others of the late 90s and first decade of 2000s generation though. I know Brandy started before that but she was still big 10 years ago.

[quote]Ciara came out just after the time in music when it the "street glam" style peaked for girls
Very true r42. I think Ciara did that style best. She shouldve just focused on being an "urban" artist. Her pop is just way too bland.
I also think she couldve done a better job with the classic sample from Ghost Town DJs. Every time I hear Body Party it just makes me want to listen to the original version of the song which bumps way better.
|by another poster than OP||reply 43||07/19/2013|
R43 I get your point but I think Ciara and the producers were going for a super slow joint. My Boo is a bit too fast for slow sexy dancing.
|by another poster than OP||reply 44||07/20/2013|
My friend who worked with her said she was quiet yet kind/friendly, very nervous about the album, knew how to do basically everything in the studio unlike other girls who just sit there while the guys twist knobs. She pitched her voice up on several tracks ala Madonna "Holiday/Borderline" etc. to sound younger.
|by another poster than OP||reply 45||07/20/2013|
R45 thanks for the info. Good to hear that Ciara is not stupid or lazy when it comes to recording songs. When you say "pitched her voice up" do you mean Ciara sang in a higher key, or she had them alter her voice with the computer?
|by another poster than OP||reply 46||07/20/2013|
She should definitely stop turning up in that fake group that kim Kardashian tries to pass off as her clique of friends (Kelly Rowland, Serena Williams, Lala Vasquez, that Gastineau, etc.) That is not a good look for Ciara. Kelly and Ciara are way, way above that Dlist mess.
|by another poster than OP||reply 47||07/20/2013|

I saw more of Aailyah in Ciara than others she was compared to, especially with her association with Missy. "Oh" is absolutely incredible, one of the best records of the 00s.

R61 - "Oh" is one of the weirdest, most effective pop songs ever written. You've really never heard anything like it then nor since. It was kind of "Crunk" but not really. It was a bizarre song that was wonderful and strange in the best way possible.
I remember it being on the radio every 20 minutes with the Gwen Stefani bananas song.
|by another poster than OP||reply 63||07/27/2013|
I somehow think Beyonce is in a different category to hasbeens Brandy and Monica! Struggling? wtf.
If Ciara can come back, who knows who can. These days there's reality TV and all sorts of routes back in for ex-stars and D-listers. Tamar Braxton got a hit!

R64 you're missing the point. Beyonce is the biggest star of her age group (early 30s). Her last album was a flop and she's having a hard time picking songs she's satisfied with for the upcoming album.
Brandy and Monica were HUGE until the rise of Beyonce. They're all in the same age group though. They haven't had real hits in years either. Amerie was never the top r&b chick so it's unlikely she'll ever strike it big either. None of them are D-list though.
As for Ciara, she's still young enough, that's why her comeback worked. She only had 1 flop of an album. If she were 5 years older, her comeback probably wouldn't have been successful.
Now Tamar Braxton was D-list but she's quickly rising her status. She's definitely C now and might work her way up to B if she picks a better single ("The One" sucks).

Beyonce is going the way of Janet Jackson ten years ago.
Janet went through the same exact thing with Virgin that Beyonce is going through with Columbia. The act becomes so huge they outgrow the confines of a label, but the label is how they get to the masses. So the act ends up falling off. Janet fizzled after she stopped working with Jam & Lewis, Beyonce is fizzling in her post Mathew years.
A new pop queen will emerge soon enough. Ciara needs to just stick to booty music. Thats what we need Ciara!

Yessss! Ciara's next single will be "Overdose". That really should have been her second album. We'll never know if the label execs simply dropped the ball by assuming having Nicki Minaj's name on the track "I'm Out" would ensure that it does well, or if perhaps Minaj had brokered a guarantee that they would release it as the second single but that song sucked. There are much better songs on the album, including Overdose.

The record company slipped when they didn't release OVERDOSE as the follow-up single to BODY PARTY. It is a vastly superior song to the Nicki Minaj travesty I'M OUT. Pop radio would have eaten it up. They've finally released it, but it may be a case of too little, too late.
|by another poster than OP||reply 87||11/10/2013|
R87 totally agreed. "Overdose" is a very catchy song, but no one cares now. If they had released it on the heels of "Body Party", Ciara would be officially back.
I wonder if Nicki Minaj had some sort of deal in which they required Ciara's label to release "I'm Out" as the second single? It wouldn't surprise me if deals like that exist in the music industry. That song was horrible and totally ruined the momentum Ciara was gaining.
|by another poster than OP||reply 88||11/10/2013|
So true, R88. And if they wanted to go with a track that featured Nicki, then they should have dropped the outstanding LIVIN' IT UP as the second single. She's featured prominently after the second verse of that song. Anything other than I'M OUT would have been good.
|by another poster than OP||reply 89||11/10/2013|
She also has struck me as having weak management. She should have been all the place with acting/modeling gigs. She had a brief role on "The Game" last season. Her management just never seems to get that gig or song to take her over.
|by another poster than OP||reply 90||11/10/2013|
Definitely agree. Rihanna's extracurricular activities outside music has actually helped her music to sell more. We see her face everywhere. Ciara is a beautiful girl too and should have done the same thing.
1 more thing to note-Ciara is signed to Epic Records, headed by LA Reid. He likely has a hand in picking singles. The "I'm Out" debacle probably is his fault. He was on point 20 years ago, but his time is up and he needs to go.
|by another poster than OP||reply 91||11/10/2013|
I just fucking CAN'T! Now Future is saying he's marrying Ciara because she gets along well with his baby mommas, kids and his mother.
Ciara WHY CHEAPEN YOURSELF? She's not a fucking groupie ho. She has had more fame and success than Future. Why date down like that? I guarantee these 2 won't be together forever. She'll simply be baby momma #4. Pathetic.
|by another poster than OP||reply 92||11/11/2013|
Wendy Williams read Ciara and Future for their engagement a couple of weeks ago. I can't help but think about Kandi when I hear this dude has multiple baby mommmas. I guess this would be more acceptable if Future didn't have kids.
r91, now that I know LA probably has a hand in her music right now, it all makes sense. He has been killing careers, BIG names, for the last several years. I would avoid him like the plague if I had any say as the artist. Ciara needs to stick to urban style music. She is ok at pop, but it was the hood that put her on. She is going to flop until she goes back to her roots.
|by another poster than OP||reply 93||11/11/2013|
R93 if she is pregnant, her career is over anyway. She can't do "mommy music" and she's not far from 30.
Unfortunately it appears she'll be known more in the future for being baby momma #4 to Future than anything she did before that.
|by another poster than OP||reply 94||11/11/2013|
Ciara easily the best-dressed celeb at the AMAs. She blew the competition away. Too bad this isn't translating into music sales. She should do a performance of "Overdose" on a late night show or something.
|by another poster than OP||reply 95||11/27/2013|
her first record was so amazing. missy elliott produced songs on it. the second album was allright but that was around the time she found out the man that she was gonna marry was a down low type of guy and that the marriage would be in paper only leading to her to be more emphasizing on her sexuality than not. body party is a return to form
|by another poster than OP||reply 96||11/27/2013|
R96, you're right. Ciara was the IT girl in that summer when "Oh" was out. She's been around a long time, but as others said I think she has weak management. She's very talented in dancing and music production work. Her voice is pleasant. Nicki shouldn't have been on the album twice...it's kinda a kiss of death. See MDNA.
|by another poster than OP||reply 97||11/29/2013|
Count me as one who thinks that Ciara should've had a much, MUCH bigger career than she's had but y'all know she had a reputation as a complete and utter bitch back in her heyday, right?
I remember Sandra Rose spilled all her tea in the "Ciara Diaries" series of blog posts around 2003-4. Ciara was apparently livid when Beyonce and Rihanna REALLY started blowing up in a mainstream way. Apparently she was so jealous of them she couldn't think and went through dozens of staff/management because she just wasn't happening like them. She has a horrible reputation in the industry, which is why her career was effectively killed.
The Fantasy Ride CD was the beginning of the end. Around that time R&B really was on the way out and her label (rightly) thought she had what it takes to be a major popstar so they started pushing her in that direction but she didn't want to. Somehow she wanted to be a major mainstream popstar but still sing R&B stuff. The single with JT did well but the album flopped.
Also don't forget that weird period in which she became a tabloid celebrity being photographed with the likes of the Kardashians. The girl has poor management and no plan.
She became known as a pain to deal with. The "Basic Instinct" record was her idea to again go back to the crunk n b stuff but she had ZERO label support and was dropped. Ciara is not the superstar she deserves to be because Ciara is hardheaded and completely miscalculated where music was trending. There is not an R&B chick out there that is doing more than 100k first week (most only do 65-80) so I have no idea why she was so invested in that genre.
Body Party was a nice little moment and is effectively the highest selling R&B single of the year, but Ciara is over. Even though she's rebuilt her bridges and cleaned up her act professionally, the moment for her to cross that bridge into true pop superstardom is gone. And the choice of the awful, devoid of a hook "I'm Out" as a second single killed the chance of the Ciara CD to become even a modest by R&B standards hit. There will be no third single or video. She's over.
And I'm someone who used to be a superfan.
|by another poster than OP||reply 98||11/30/2013|
She was labeled The Next Janet Jackson when she first came out. She has all the ingredients to carry that title, but weak management is her problem. Her latest CD is filled with potential hits.

Speaking of 00s R&B singers, I wish Blue Cantrell would come back. She didn't sound like any of the smooth, small-voiced singers of the time.
I read she got into drugs. Hopefully they didn't take her voice a la Whitney.
|by another poster than OP||reply 100||11/30/2013|
"Overdose" has hit-potential, but I think it's too late now. If that had been the single released after "Body Party" I'm sure it would have done well. Now, no one cares.
R100 Blu Cantrell is a nice talent but she is crazy as fuck. It's also rumored Beyonce's team had her blacklisted after Blu called out Beyonce about 10 years ago.
|by another poster than OP||reply 101||11/30/2013|
My aunt works at a hotel and said that Blu Cantrell once stayed there and was a great tipper.

R102 when was that? 10 years ago? Blu is probably broke now. I mean she did that celebrity circus show a few years ago lmao

How does she still have a record deal after such mediocre sales from her albums and singles? People who have sold way more have been dropped, yet she keeps on recording somehow.
|by another poster than OP||reply 113||03/29/2014|
I read recently that she had started work on a new album but I'm sure the pregnancy has delayed that. I wouldn't be surprised if this either takes a couple more years to be released, or the project is totally scrapped.
"Body Party" did really well though. Her career would have been better last year if the second single had been chosen more carefully. "I'm Out" was so stupid. It's clear "Overdose" would have been a hit.
|by another poster than OP||reply 114||03/29/2014|

I'm not feeling the new song, but she looks great as usual.
r130 I agree. She started out as a very pretty girl with a down south "urban" edge, I remember everyone used to compare her to Aaliyah. Pop is just not working out for her.

OMG body party is barely a gay song. I remember hearing about it on DL in this post that said it was basically a gay anthem, so I finally listened to it. It was...not a gay anthem. Suggestive lyrics, OK. But it was kind of quiet, outdated looking, no one liner lyrics like Bey, no campy video to accompany it. Bet You Still Love Me is much better-video is Fosse/a little silly.Song more catchy. Love Ciara though!
PS they were mean to her on Entertainment Tonight. She was at an education fundraiser and they said "Ciara is a heavy promoter of education although she never went to college herself". It sounded so petty. ET is always doing this type of passive aggressive BS.

R156 yes Ciara is a better dancer than Beyonce.

"Body Party" was her first single in years to get major radio airplay & rotation
|by another poster than OP||reply 160||05/22/2015|
r152 Brandy and Monica are still pretty hot in the R&B scene. Brandy's song "Put It Down" had huge potential to be a big hit, but it was wasted potential.
All of the hot female artists out right now seem to look up to Brandy. I think she's fine.
|by another poster than OP||reply 161||05/22/2015|
R161 who are you kidding? Brandy can't buy a hit if she tried. Her last album and singles all flopped even though the material wasn't that bad. Monica has had trouble as well.
Ciara's "Body Party" was a big r&b hit and a moderate crossover hit.
R&B in general is struggling, especially with the female recording acts. Only Tinashe had that 1 hit last year but has since flopped.
|by another poster than OP||reply 162||05/22/2015|
r162 Two Eleven outsold both of Ciara's recent efforts, and Brandy had a long break and less hits. So Brandy is still able to outsell Ciara's horrible record sales even with odds against her. ;)
By the way, hot current artists out right now like Ariana Grande, Jessie J, and Rihanna have all stated they look up to Brandy and she inspires them. Her legacy in the industry is real.
|by another poster than OP||reply 163||05/22/2015|
All of R& B'sales are anemic. Seven Streeter, Tinashe, Dej Loaf, Janelle, K. Michelle, Tamar are making a dent but they only sell a few thousand. Its the weak talent. Nobody wants to buy albums from thin, reedy voiced singers. Hopefully big voices will make a comback

r145 Ciara is incredibly calculating. She has been obsessed with being part of a power couple for years. Sadly for her taste in men is abominable - 50 cent, Bow Wow, Future and now this odd looking dweeb. Plus she never really had that X factor thing that marks her out.
|by another poster than OP||reply 167||05/22/2015|
I do think though that if Ciara stays with Wilson, she has a chance at winning over the sizable amount of female football viewers which could lead to another crossover hit. There is a chance at that but it's small.
|by another poster than OP||reply 168||05/22/2015|
r168, gurl you better strategize for this heifer! It'll take that and little help from Jesus for this child to get a crossover hit.

it's weird though because the music video for "I Bet" has over 38 million views on youtube which is a lot for a song that didn't crack the top 30. It's like people have an interest in her but don't feel like buying her music.

Ciara is really pretty. She looks better than Beyonce and Rihanna IMO
|by another poster than OP||reply 171||05/24/2015|
R164 Agreed on that. Janelle Monae is actually great though but squanders her mainstream appeal by not selling sex enough and picking bad single choices. Her voice is good, but she's no Lauryn Hill. I, too, am sick of this 'whisper queen' shit and want big voices back.
|by another poster than OP||reply 172||05/24/2015|
Janelle's new video "Yoga" is pretty sexy for her.
IMO Ciara should've stuck to the more urban R&B. She basically had her own little lane. Body Party was a return to that style which is why it was so well received. She is getting older and better do what she does best. At any moment the industry powers can find some pretty black 18 year old fresh out of high school and make her the next thing, just like they did with Ciara.
|by another poster than OP||reply 173||05/24/2015|
R173 You're right, I wish I liked "Yoga" more as a song though. It may be a little late to transition into a sultry R&B sex symbol, and given the dismal quality product the genre has been pumping out lately, i'd rather one of its few creative (if not original) voices not sell out just to have a last crack at reaching the masses. But we shall see!
Yep, Ciara was better off doing stuff like "Lose Control". I feel worse for the flailing career of Keri Hilson though, they both get crap online but at least she had a few jams.

Ciara is on the reality competition show "I Can Do That" which starts airing this week on NBC.

I think Future is very handsome with a good face and good, smooth skin. The hair is fine-he would look good with a lot of styles. I don't find him hot because he has NO body though and his personality is a turnoff. I can't stand hetero men who are mitches. He also has at least 4 kids with 4 different women. No way can he be there for all his kids all the time (cue Iyanla when she did that special last fall lol). Why is he mad that Russell is acting fatherly towards Future Jr? If he could be in a relationship and stay with the woman after having a baby, he wouldn't have to worry about other men swooping in and assuming the role for him. Russell Wilson is too xtian for me, but his character is a lot more respectable than Future's.

I can't at TI weighing in saying he'd "go off" on Ciara if she brought a new man around his child so soon. Why don't these men understand that when you have multiple baby mamas, you can't be there for each child all that much. If Future's only kid was with Ciara, then I'd be siding with him. The fact he has 4 kids by 4 women AND he's still trying to make his flopulous rapping career pop off means he's not seeing each kid as much as she should. Why is Ciara wrong for bringing a real man around her child who will see him on a consistent basis? Future shouldn't have had so many kids by different women if he didn't want this to happen.
