Ciara Covers Beyonce’s ‘Diva’

Published: Sunday 28th Dec 2008 by Sam

Keeping the momentum going in the run-up to the release of her new ‘Fantasy Ride’ project, Ciara has interestingly enough put her own unique spin on Beyonce’s ‘Diva’. Put simply, the cut, which is featured on Ciara’s ‘Fantasy Ride’ mixtape, sounds great. Similar to her take on Janet’s ‘Feedback’, Ci’s slant on the track injects new life into the already hot club banger. Bring on Ciara’s new album! Her official first single ‘Never Ever’ is set to debut within the next few days.

    Better than Bee’s. Did better than Janet’s.

    I still want to hear her own hit, and not a an improvement on remixes.

  2. Anonymous December 28, 2008

    I like the version by Ciara. It sounds good to me. I did not like the version by Beyonce, even though the beat is great. This type of song is not for a person in her class as i see her (Beyonce, that is). This type of song is more suited for Ciara because she is like a ghetto queen. Sorry if that term offends anyone. It is not meant to be a disrespectful thing only an observation.

    Beyoncé version is way better!

  5. mims December 28, 2008

    honestly, it sounds like there’s something missing in the song. i didn’t feel the ‘umph’ in her voice. i found beyonce’s one more interesting because of how well it goes with the beat.

    nonetheless, it is not a bad take on bey’s version, which i still think is better.

  6. Nick December 28, 2008

    I agree wth person above me, I mean it jst dnt grab me like Beyonce's version, I LOVE SUM CiCi, BUT BEYONCE SLAYED ALL THE WOMEN ON THIS SONG, its cute tho, a remix wth MISSY & LIL KIM would b hottttt tho–

  7. Anonymous December 28, 2008

    WTF IS THAT……that is the worst remix i have ever heard CiCi hop on WTF…her voice dont even match the beat like that and all the damn haters that be sayin Bee always jocking Ciara IT SEEMS TO ME that CiCi decided to return the favor by jocking Bee….and badly if she dont get her flat ass vocals off this track, her album should’ve stayed unreleased!!!! ugh

    Beyonce version of Diva is way way better than Ciara. Ciara I hope u not letting 50 get to ur head. Because just like him, how many can’t stand him because he tries to beef with everybody. I hope that u not trying to do the same. I respect u as an artist that can dance good on stage and get the crowd hype up. But u are no where near Beyonce level. U like on a rihanna level. U still got alot to learn child. What happen to u being all humble and sweet when u first came out, now u want to be all hardcore. I had like ur music when u first came out, but now I’m not really enjoying ur music like it used to be. It just seems as if that 50 is putting u up to do things that are very sneaky. But we as fans or others can see rite through u. Give ur fans ur hit new music, not these remix hits, this shows just how a female artist falls off.

    Are people really saying this is better than Beyonce’s? hmmm, her Feedback was great, but this sounded like it could have been any random girl from youtube.

  11. Anonymous December 28, 2008

    Beyonce version is better than this shitty version. Ciara should’ve left this song alone. CiCi really need to stop remixing everybody songs. Honestly, girl make ur music and remix ur music not other singers music. This remix rite here is wikedy wack. I’m not hating, I’m just going to keep it real. I agree with the comment up top. This is just how female artist fall off.

    Well I think any artist can’t make an original song that was a MISS into a HIT anyday! So yeah, this kinda song was NOT meant for Beyonce. Ugh, it’s so lame, I knew some1 would come with the “A Milli” knock off, and it had to be Beyonce… Not a surprise!

    And yes Ciara or now your callin yourself C, go get tah working on yo own shizzY!

    Both versions sound good, but I prefer Beyonce’s version. Beyonce’s version had more attitude. Ciara’s voice seems too soft, light, or sweet for this type of song IMO.

  15. Anonymous December 28, 2008

    She just killed Beyonce. The song is garbage to begin with but Ciara’s version is listenable.

  16. julian kang December 28, 2008

    THIS IS WAY BETTER THAN BEYONCE’s!
    this song fits CiCi… and she would have a hit with this… Beyonce seems so much annoying with this song.

  17. antertain December 28, 2008

    Not better than Bee’s BUT i hope more females Jump on the banwagon and have various remixes like what happened with “A Milli”

    Cici being playful and i like her personality. Hope her track with Jeezy is fire

    Ciara is actually from the hood so she has more grit to her version. Not a fan of the original song but this was good.

  25. T December 28, 2008

Beyonce have Jay z ciara go after 50 nonsense, beyonce have sasha now ciara have super c. beyonce do diva she do diva . what next. single ladies remix. I know her ass won’t touch the “I AM” cd,because she would not be able to hold a not from those songs

  30. Anonymous December 28, 2008

    First she did Feedback and now Diva!!??!? This just proves that Ciara’s tryna take everybody else’s ideas and put her stank on it and it smells like s***! Ciara ain’t a diva no matter how hard she tries. And the whole comic strip thing was totally yanked from Christina Aguilera…That’s why she delayed her album, once she found out what Christina was doing with the whole comic thing, she wanted to do it too.

  33. you already know December 28, 2008

    PERSONALLY I DIDN’T LIKE EITHER ONE OF THEM H***. BEYACKI IS TO DAMN OLD TO BE SINGING S*** LIKE THIS. HER ASS IS ALMOST 30 SO TRY SINGING S*** IN YOUR AGE GROUP. CIARA’S ASS DIDN’T HAVE THE VOICE OR THE RANGE TO PULL THE SONG OFF. SHE ISN’T A SINGER AND Y’ALL KNOW THAT. BUT IF I SEE A DANCE TO IT WITH CIARA I WOULD DEF GIVE IT TO CIARA. WE ALL KNOW HER ASS CAN MOVE.

    CIARA ALSO JACKED FEEDBACK AND DID NOT DO A GOOD JOB AT IT. GUESS SHE’S MAD CUS BEY’S BOY SONG WAS BETTER THAN HERS. SORRY CICI

    CiCi is Ciara’s alter-ego? LMAO. Since when?

    –anyways, this is a mess. I mean, she is in no position to ask “Where yo’ boss at?” Where is your boss at Ciara? It’s taking your BOSS forever to put out that album.

    Oh yeah Mrs. Carter version is WHACK! Comapre both of their 1:25-45 secs of the track and tell me Ciaras aint better! ( Cause thats all Ci did)
    Her effortlessly Flow, and high airy vocals is so SOOTHING and PLeasing Yet hard. CONGRATS CICI! You killed it!
    A Mega hit and Better then she did on Feedback Remix!

  42. Anonymous December 28, 2008

    Ciara killed that song but in a very bad way. Honey leave that to Beyonce because we already know you aint a diva in no way shape or form. These other singers don’t have that effortless swag like Bey that’s why Ciara could never pull something like this off. Go work on your own album that should have been released and leave other people already made songs alone with them terrible sounding vocals.

  43. Really? December 28, 2008

    This version is so lame. If you jack another’s swagga, you have to go full out. And Ciara doesn’t. Although, I’ll give her some credit for finally copying someone besides Janet.

  44. The Truth! December 28, 2008

    Beyonce stop blogging on the site really its sad!
    Dont be mad Ciara flows better then you and her little 2 secs of her song RIPS your whole Diva song. LOL
    Ci stans LOVE it, Anti-Bey Stans LOVE IT, 1st Listeners LOVE it!

    Cici is a fool for doing this. she is a late artist and she know’s better than to release her album while Beyonce is slaying the scene. I thought she would be above mixtapes but i guess the late queens have to do something to keep them occupied. her voice doesnt even match the song, nor is she a diva. and she need to give t-pain the boot, all the tracks i’ve heard have been late just like t-pain’s style. yack!!

  50. Rob [YKYDAW] December 29, 2008

    The truth you an CiCi need to sit the hell down gurl like really LOL. First of all what kind of diva gets her album pushed back to Neveruary. I stan for both Ci CI and Beyonce but both versions in MY opinion was awkward just Beyonces was less poison than Cicis… i mean really CICI w/e you call this talk singing… needs to stop stay in your lane and “phone s**” sing your damn song. And whoever talks about Kelly rowland popping on this joint needs to stop too divas don’t get kicked out of their country for bad sales.

  51. Rob [YKYDAW] December 29, 2008

    But to be honest… I think CiCi is one self hating beyotch cause really her management sucks (FIRE THEM!)- go girl was a hot song… just not catchy i hated the single till i saw the video. and to all you CiCi stans STOP your not helping her she needs to know the truth you supporting her through all the s*** she does (aka nude mag cover…. saying 09 is hers) when you KNOW the 60% of the leaked songs were garbage. she probably leaks them herself and prays some hoodrat says “this s*** is tighter than riyawna” but comes and sees shes associated with garbage. Yes i know shes playing around with the track but its come to a point wheres shes just flat out a JOKE almost Khia Level,

  52. Anonymous December 29, 2008

    ok 1st of all she sounds absolutly DREADFUL!!! and she kinda disappointed me, i thought she was gonna come harder then that. i dont know wut Ciera’s deal is but she’s really feelin herself these days, not that thats a bad thing, shes definitly hott…but she needs go hard or go home!

    Ciara verses are miles better then Bey’s the flow is no question better then Bey’s. The length and production of the song on Bey’s is way better thus it made the album and is a single. Which you would expect from an artist. Looks like Ci just had some fun with this not a lot of time and its better then bey’s that sad!

  62. Anonymous December 29, 2008

    Ciara did what she was suppose to do with the track and give it some fresh air and she kilt the track in a good way…. Its not better than Bey’s because Ciara stepped in another lane and rapped. So singing and rapping aint no competition From a rapping perspective she clowned on the track especially the last verse, Im Far From Boogie But Im A Diva.. Get Em Ci….. I Love Ciaras Version…

  63. Anonymous December 29, 2008

    it wasn’t made to compete with beyonce or outshine her…it was just a damn freestyle! just like chris brown or ne-yo or anybody else doin a freestyle to AMillie! No different!

    *Cough* why is ppl saying that she is stealing from her and stuff? umm if you didnt check Halo the video the water scene…geez ppl these day ppl cop each others sometimes its normal its not like the world is gonna end. Like Jamie said she is only having some fun and its for a mixtape thats what some people do cover tracks and change them around. To me when she covered this track it probly means she likes the track Diva from Bee so stop hating.

    to the person that said that kelly rowland shouldnt get on the track is outta their mind…i love bey and she is the s*** but face it kelly is about the only b**** in the industry that can give bey a run for her money when it come to performing and everything that bey is talking about on that track kelly can relate to it so please….name on artist that can jump on stage dance…i mean really give it their all and still stay on key….nobody but beyonce and kelly!!!! get wit it

    oh and yea cici w/e u want to call urself please sit down somewhere…someone that says that “they are a bigger star than beyonce” lmao thats really funny to me lmao please….should not be puting any songs out that sounds like this hot ass mess…wtf was u thinking??? u sound like a ghetto mess and u really showed how u cant sing…really cant sing like really cant sing….u should of thought before you leaked this and try to get ur label to release that damn ablum like the posts above me….”divas dont get their albums pushed back” lmao

    Their Both great, but Ciara is the “Hood” chick. So her version is a lil better. Thats what i think. but they both did their thang. I think it also has to do with the hype around Ciara finally giving us the official single.

    Not really a comparison its just a damn mixtape…….yall act like the gurl called beyonce out……..I tolerate ciara’s version cuz her flow is sick…..the song is a hot ghetto mess..and the meaning is dumb……..heres an insight real quick

    Ciara’s is much better, much more listenable. Also, Ciara has A LOT of her own songs. So she wants to try something different, it doesn’t mean she doesn’t own her own style. A style which, I might add, is infinitely better than Beyonce’s.
