Hot Shots: Ciara Hits Beverly Hills For Dinner / Enlists Elijah Blake For ‘One Woman Army’?

ciara future that grape juice Hot Shots: Ciara Hits Beverly Hills For Dinner / Enlists Elijah Blake For One Woman Army?

Peep these pics of ‘Like A Surgeon’ stunner Ciara, on her way out of Mastros Steakhouse in Beverly Hills last night.

Joined by her reported boyfriend Future, the Givenchy beauty was snapped on her way out of the restaurant as she made her way to her car, arm in arm with the ‘Love Song’ Rapper.

Her sighting comes months before the launch of her hotly anticipated  ‘One Woman Army’ studio album, which will feature contributions from ‘No Hush‘ gem Wynter Gordon and Roc Nation priority, Elijah Blake.

More below…


ciara future mastros 1 Hot Shots: Ciara Hits Beverly Hills For Dinner / Enlists Elijah Blake For One Woman Army?

Set for release later on this year, a number of reports indicate that Blake has indeed signed onto aid in crafting the project, after penning the Reggae jam ‘No Love Allowed‘ for Rihanna and the R&B smash hit ‘Climax‘, recorded by ‘The Voice‘s Usher.

Marking her first collaboration with the singer/songwriter, Ciara’s work with Elijah follows the release of a snippet pulled from a cut named ‘Overdose‘, a cut set to feature on the EPIC album.

Love it.

With LA Reid in her corner, we can’t wait for the launch of the ‘OWA’ era and the material much of the world can’t wait to get its hands on.

Of course, while we hope to hear cuts akin to ‘Wake Up’ on the release, we also hope the campaign sees Cici established as a premium Pop act, carving a precise lane between Pop, Hip Hop & R&B- using Top 40 singles like ‘Overdose’ to push the rest of the project.

In short, in what might be a strange suggestion to make, we could easily see Ci becoming the ‘Urban’ alternative to the likes of Katy Perry , if her aesthetic and general ‘All American-ness’ is played to her full advantage in the months leading to the LP’s release.

Peep our interview with Elijah here!

    Let’s face it, Ciara AKA CERROR, doesn’t have crossover appeal. Even many of her fans are now saying that she has officially disappointed them. CERROR is untalented for 1, and 2, she doesn’t have a good ear for music. I just watched the clip of the video for this single “got me good” and it’s embarrassing. She looks like a skinny tranny with muscles trying to be like Michael Jackson and the c****** toughing is stank. LOL, b**** is still living in the past and this cover is so cliché. She will never find her own identity. now she is desperate fuking for tracks hahaha

      Does she need to appeal to WHITE FOLKS in order to enjoy success in the music industry? Some folks need to wake the f*ck up and stop looking for others to VALIDATE THEIR EXISTENCE……

      She just needs to release a solid CD fo h core audience & that’s all and let the rest of he world will catch up….

        She’s had a #1 single and Album , though… And a grammy? Is that not crossover appeal? She needs to release “Livin’ it Up” or “Overdose” she’s trying to reintroduce herself to the hip-hop crowd first..

    Well Ciara lost me after The Evolution. I do not know WHERE she was going, but she lost her crowd after. I don’t think there is any hope for Ciara at this point. She had a formula and she should have stuck with it. When she “evolved”, she should have shown us something different. She became too Hollywood. I wish her much success but she cannot compete against Rihanna, GaGa, Beyonce, and the rest. Their teams are much more powerful.

        She has sold 27 + million albums because she was awarded by her label for 100 million records worldwide last year, 25 million albums and 75 million singles and that was before Unapologetic era started. So she is at 27.3 million albums right now (considering that Unapologetic has sold 2.3+ so far). Beyonce has yet to cross 25 million albums though.

      Anyways, if she had that promo and videos for Livin’ It Up and Overdose instead Sorry and Got Me Good, she could had some radio hits…
      I just hope next single sticks and she can release the damn album already… We are playing with dates and buzz singles since last summer! I love you Cici, but you need better single choices!

    Wait! People are mad that other artists record dance music tacks but it’s okay for Ciara? Come on now really? I am not feeling overdose and I only like the video for her 1st release! I wish she would get back with ….what’s his name…..Jazzy Pha who cafted a sound for her with “My Goddies” and a few other songs on her 1st CD. She needs to get back to that sound and feel. It was hers and she played her part well! If she does not, I dont hold much hope for her new project even with LA Reids arrogant, disgusting ass in her corner!

    You Ciara stans always have a billion excuses. Just admit that no one has been checking for your girl since 2006. She can’t sing, her songs are juvenile & pointless and no one cares about her dancing anymore. Her, Ashanti, Keri Hilson, Keyshia Cole, Monica & Brandy should go on tour. They should have enough fans to fill a Burger King. :-D

    Ciara’s career is over. The fact that this is her THIRD album IN A ROW that got pushed back to when-the-f***-ever should speak volumes. Not to mention the buzz or viral of whatever you want to call them singles that came and went. She is obviously not a priority at her new label. She should just give up trying to reignite her singing career and become a dance instructor, or judge a “America’s Best Dance Crew” type show. No shade, just being realistic.
