While Ciara continues to ready her eagerly awaited new LP ‘Basic Instinct’, a new cut from the set has surfaced in the form of ‘Shut Em Up’. As its title suggests, the song is an emphatic response to ‘the haters’.
Take a listen after the jump…
With it’s hard-hitting, tribal-inspired production, ‘Shut Em Up’ sees Ciara in familiar club-destined territory. However, where the track truly succeeds is in its unveiled lyrical directness. Ms. Harris’ addressing of the much cited suggestion that she went “Hollywood”, among other critiques, garnishes – what quite easily could be just another club cut – with a layer of honesty and authenticity. If it’s the “true” Ciara fans have been awaiting, here she is. Great track.
