‘Somebody call the doctor…’
They wished, hoped and prayed it and today…they received it.
That’s right, almost a year after a first hearing a snippet from the number, today saw Ciara announced ‘Overdose‘ as the third single to be pulled from her R&B #1 album ‘Ciara‘.
Releasing its artwork to Just Jared.Com, the Grammy winning chart sensation strikes a provocative pose with an unidentified male on the cover, sure to raise many an eyebrow and erect a fresh buzz around the Pop single- penned by Ali Tamposi, Livvi Franc and Cici herself!
With this song being just what the commercial Dr. ordered, we can’t wait to see how its release pushes sales of its supporting album, which already birthed the Top 40 hit that is ‘Body Party’.
However, we do have one concern. This, being its music video. For, as we’re sure the folk over at Epic will agree, ‘Overdose’ has the potential to being this era’s biggest hit and – if pushed hard enough- one of her most celebrated hits to date.
It’s for this reason, that we’re desperately hoping its video serves ‘moments’ in abundance, boasting cinematography breathtaking enough to pull in the kind of views she’ll need to score another Top 40 entry- in the event its digital sales don’t hit their intended target.
Sure, while it’d be naive to assume the visual’s set to receive a Gaga esque budget, there’s no reason it can’t pack the ‘GIF ready slayage’ that’d literally see it promote itself on forums and Tumblr pages , and give Joe Public an incentive to both play and purchase it!
Not sure what we mean by ‘moments’ or ‘GIF ready slayage’? Cop a gander below…
For, it’s moments like these that are needed to capture the essence of the act when montages are being created for tour interludes and major TV appearances (see X Factor intros). Both of which, fans hope to see Cici serve a whole lot of in the months to follow.
