    If you sing a pop-dance song, you better learn how to dance for the live performance!!

    Sis, not when you stan for Local Tweedy. The only place she can book stages are at ITV shows and if she’s lucky The Voice. Do you think she could ever book Glastonbury let alone a US talk show with that wafer thin voice of hers? Oh no the f*** she could not, so sit.

    She looks cute but seriously looks like a Rihanna/Beyonce hybrid anyways the song is weak & the vocals mediocre.

    How on Earth does a Ciara fan call anyone’s vocal performance mediocre???? Lmao Rita has a wider vocal range and soul to her voice. She has power. Ciara cant even whisper on key. Embarrassing!

    Ciara doesn’t have the strongest vocals but she makes up for that with her amazing dancing Ritas vocals are just basic and her dance skills are non existent oh and she lacks stage presence.

    Excuse me? I’m not a Ciara stan but please. Whora over here sounds like she’s about to damage her vocal chords in the song.

    That salamander needs to sit, Ciara will do more iconic things

    Rita Slays Replied:

    Lmao!! Ciara has no vocals at all. They don’t exists. And have a stadium of seats with that dancing excuse. The b*tch got signed to sing, not dance. I don’t care how well she can dance, she can’t sing worth a damn and that’s all that matters. Shed be better off as a back up dancer for Beyonce or someone.

    Great performance! I was a little worried last year when her performances kinda fell off vocally but this just shows that when she’s back session her voice is on point. I Will Never Let You Down is at #82 on US iTunes and rising steadily. I have a good feeling about this song! I just wish Roc Nation would’ve waited till today to release the video. Streaming would’ve helped her chart well. I see radio picking up on it soon though.

    I don’t see how she looks like Rihanna here. I get Beyonce because of the hair and skin tone, but that’s a reach. Rita has had her hair like that since last year.

    By the way, why did August Alsina outsell your fave with ONE local single? Shouldn’t you be ashamed that Ciara has ten years in the game and her new album sold less than someone who most of the gp don’t even know about?

    1. Wannabehannna actually did work the f*** out of that song and I’m kinda sorta here for it.
    2. I’m sure TGJ are giving their biased asses high fives for making this s*** happen cos nobody knew who she was until you decided to force feed her to us. So yay for you I f****** guess.

    Why are you guys seeing anything wrong with what TGJ did for Rita? They did it for Miguel and nobody said anything then.

    Because Miguel had it together from the jump so all they did was push him out there to more people which was good of them if i’m being totally fair.

    Rita’s first single wasn’t even out and they were on here acting like she was the second coming of Tivo but now I see this was the plan all along.

    Yeah Sam did help to break Miguel but Miguel deserved it, Rita does not because she has everything handed to her on a platter, magazine covers, movies, endorsements etc.

    Miguel had potential so this is different and when he started they gave him the Splash where he proved that he could sing, the way they did it with Rita is different but it’s obvs worked so I’m not mad at em.

    Good for her and everything but there are so many better people who deserve the TGJ platform and they don’t get it. Mila J and Tinashe are miles better than Rita and BabymamaAra but do they get ANY love here?

    Don’t worry about Ciara or even Rita when your faves can’t even their own threads on any of the major blogs I use. I can’t even.

    Sorry Sam & David “I will Never Let You Down” will never be a Hit. Forget it. That song will be like #MH370 that Malaysia are still serching for. Hope they find It. And let’s have little hope cus it won’t even make a top 20.

    Im sorry but i hope for her sake these were not pre recorded vocals because it was terrible! It sounded like she talk sang all the way through! The bridge was tragic! I must have clicked on the wrong video! Im just not hearing anything good! If this is what she considers promoting, iwnlyd will remain her biggest flop in history
