Album Review: Ciara – ‘Jackie’

In recent history, Ciara‘s personal life has superseded her musical career–and for obvious reasons. Nearly a year after announcing her engagement to hip-hop artist, Future, the singer shockingly called off the anticipated wedding, followed by rumors of infidelity on the rapper’s part. She even graced the cover of Brides magazine, donning a wedding dress she would ultimately never get the chance to wear. As most artists do when met with personal strife, Cici put her public breakup on wax with her first single “I Bet.” It gave listeners a glimpse into what the singer thought of the betrayal from the… Continue Reading

Ciara Performs Acoustic Versions of ‘Overdose,’ ‘Read My Lips’ and ‘DUI’

Ciara stopped by The GRAMMYs to perform acoustic versions of “Overdose,” “Read My Lips” and “DUI” – all from her self-titled album, Ciara. CiCi slows it down with a live band and background singers to give a new spin on her studio records. Considering Ciara’s trademark for dancing, it’s sometimes refreshing to see her slow it down with just her and a microphone. Check out the performances below. “Overdose” “Read My Lips” “DUI” Despite sounding slightly pitchy on overdose (and the terrible background singers), Ciara did a pretty good job! DUI especially compliments her voice.  —@MRGERRENALIST

Ciara’s Album Scores No. 2 Spot on Billboard 200 Chart

Call it a comeback! Ciara’s self-titled fifth studio album, Ciara, debuted at no. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart, a significant jump from her 2010 album, Basic Instinct, which debuted at a embarrassing no. 44.
