People Who Are Addicted To Music
Confidence is a fatal weapon; the fearlessness it conceives makes one invincible, even to one’s worst enemy. Ciara is one who exudes confidence beyond her strut. The singer stepped on to the scene close to 10 years ago with the Petey Pablo-assisted “Goodies” — a song that teases her lady bits (and with an accompanying video which showcased her signature sensual and angular dancing).
Ciara followed up with “Promise,” the lead single off her sophomore album “Ciara: The Evolution,” which certified the singer as possessing the appealing combination of demureness and sensuality, from behind the mic to in front of flickering lights.
With every album, Ciara has gotten closer to becoming her true self. Ultimately strengthening her talents, Ciara’s self-titled fifth studio album finds the singer at her best: when she’s at her most confident. The album, her strongest and most concise since her debut, sees Ciara flourishing in mostly bass-heavy, slinky soundscapes (courtesy of Mike Will Made It, Soundz, Darkchild) that fit her vocal range. But she explores new territory (flirting with dance on her best “Ciara” song, “Overdose”), taking off her cool when rapping (“Super Turnt Up”) and using a new love for inspiration (hi Future.)
