New Song: Ciara – ‘Love, Sex & Magic (ft. Justin Timberlake)’

New Song: Ciara - 'Love, Sex & Magic (ft. Justin Timberlake)'
Though the release date of Ciara’s ‘Fantasy Ride’ LP is a still a few months away (April 7th), more new material from the set continues to surface – this time, a collaboration with label-mate Justin Timberlake called ‘Love, Sex & Magic’. The funk-inspired cut, which was also produced by Timberlake, may sound familiar, as his demo version of the track was making the rounds on the ‘net a late last year. Put simply, about the song, I’m liking this one – although it does feel like something, which I can’t put my finger on is missing.
Interestingly, this is set to be the next single from ‘Fantasy Ride’, with CiCi and Justin filming the video today(!) in New York with Diane Martel who was at the directorial helm of ‘Promise’ and ‘Like A Boy.’
As CiCi’s current single  ‘Never Ever’ continues to struggle on the charts, we want to know…
Do you think ‘Love, Sex & Magic’ will save ‘Fantasy Ride’?

Hit or Miss?

    how is never ever struggling? never ever is on the rnb charts and climbing. it’s bubling under on hot 100 in it’s 3rd week with no ads from crossover. it’s debuted on the charts in sweden and germany. promise didn’t move that fast. but i guess bc her label didn’t buy downloads the next week for a record breaking jump like others get, it’s considered to be struggling. that’s okay she’ll keep her $$ instead of using it to buy singles.

    this song at first i was like wtf. then i gave it 3 listens with good quality (not this youtube), and i get it. this is going to you guys in the uk and europe. this is the crossover record.

    where beyonce released both her single. ci just released hers a month apart. one for urban and one for pop.

    it’s hot

    the record isn’t the final version. that’s what you can’t put your finger on. when you people stop leaking songs and wait then you will be able to give a good review

    The Answer is: NO.

    This album is not gonna sell like the previous…

    It’s a shame cos she’s a hotty but these singles don’t stand out at all!

    It’s sounds like it’s from his FutureSex/Lovesound CD. It sounds a lot like one of the songs on there, but I don’t remember the name. Besides High Price, and Turntables (thanks a lot, Chris B, now she can’t release that), everything else has been average or boring. This song is dead.

    Yes. this is what she needed

    The song kinda sounds like Rihanna’s song “Sexuality”.

    All I can say is ewww. That beat…she know that was not meant for her. WAY to Poppy for a Ciara track, I can’t believe that! Makes the collabo. seem extremely forced. It would have been nice to hear them do something more along the lines of Michale Jackson/Janet Jackson’s “Scream.” From them two, it would be CRAZY HOT!

    She is really trying for this ‘Fantasy Ride’ album. It is time, if they are seriously filming the 2nd single’s video, for a speedy release to scrap the whole ‘Fantasy Ride’ idea, and start from the bottom up again.

    She needs to lose her ego, get back with Jazze Pha, Lil Jon, Missy Elliott, and create a damn near carbon copy of her ‘Goodies’ album, cuz the recent stuff is whack, especially “Go Girl.”

    Music fans (not Ciara fans, or stans as many of you call them) WANT THE OLD CIARA BACK!

    Response to the 1st poster.

    I hope that Ciara, isn’t planing on releasing this single to Pop/Top 40 radio formats.

    Cause you know ppl will say she’s copying Beyonce’s current method, sadly, they will!

    But it may be a smart move with her since NOTHING is sticking with the ‘Fantasy Ride’ album, and I would say “Never, Ever” is having little to moderate success, not that’s it’s completely tanking as “Go Girl” did.

    I like this song, and I like Ciara. I hope this song does better than her previous singles on the charts. The song does sound like a song that would be on Justin Timberlake’s last album. I love Justin’s last album, so of course I would love this song too. It sounds like a Justin Timberlake’s song than Ciara’s song.

    So i take it that “Love S** Magic” will be released worldwide and “Never Ever” will be released on the USA???

  19. Mark February 20, 2009

    i hope LOVE S** MAGIC only gets released in europe
    cause the song is sh**!am very sad for that as i was expecting an ultimate club banger from some of the greatest entertainers of our generation.AGAIN!THIS IS A MISS.I dont know what Ciara is thinking.Song she releases as singles,can not be a hit,even if you are Beyonce,Britney or Justin & Rihanna even.Ciara really needs to come up with killer songs that are radio friendly to restore her career!

  20. Anonymous February 20, 2009

    why sooo many damn videos and no album out yet?
    first it was go girl and then never ever and now this wack track! the truth of the matter is Ciara can not sing and does not know how to evolve. She does the same dance steps and unfortunately she is just too wide in the shoulders and too tall to be the next Janet Jackson.

  21. Anonymous February 20, 2009

    i just got one question for the ‘girls’ (f*** are included)

    Ok, i clock tees all day…literally all day!!
    what i don’t understand is where does this “wide in the shoulders” stuff come from? because i can’t see it.

    and im the type of person that would, you understand what i’m saying. her shoulders seem tuna.
    if anything, her jaw is alittle too defined.
    but sweety, fish come in all different shapes and sizes….

    back to the song, i don’t like it.
    but im excited for her album

  22. Anonymous February 20, 2009

    This song is cheap

    Its like a big joke they should od stick to go girl

  23. trustarboy February 20, 2009

    MISS, the version with JT alone sounds better…but I hope her album does well.

  24. Anonymous February 20, 2009

    Not rlly my cuo of Tea, but it might garner some air play wit the pop crowd. Which who she really needs to work wit if she’s trying to stay relevant.
    When people say she’s the new era Janet it really shows in this song, I could see her singing on this track

    So sick of Justin Timberfake in all the sisters video! Why is there a need for him to appear in all the top selling black female artists, Let some contraversy happen and Justin fake a*** will abandon them all. There are plenty of black r/b artist that can actually sing way better that Justin. So sick of him!

  27. Anonymous February 20, 2009

    U know what? I’m not a fan of Justin so Ciara already lost major points with me there. But why feel the need to keep having Justin on your video when he was already featured with Madonna, Rhianna and Beyonce? We saw what happened to Janet. Ciara is really losing fans. Sad day in music when another artist needs another artist to save the album from flopping. It’s not even about Justin being white more of the fact that why is she using him when alreay been featured on everyelse videos. It is the same repititive bull***. T-Pain was on everybody ish, but you still manage to flop with the single GO GIRL. What makes her think this bland-subpar-at-best single will work? CIARA STEP UP YOUR GAME I WANT THE OLD CIARA BACK!

  28. Anonymous February 20, 2009

    U KNOW WHAT? I want Ciara to srapped this album. Just throw it away in the trash can and start over again. Every artist is allowed crappy album. I’ll will wait but don’t ask me to buy this crappy ish. Due to the problem arising in the economy I just can’t afford to buy CRAP. We are in a recession get your ish together…(I’ll be damned if I buy some ish. I don’t care if it happens to be my favorite artist. I’m putting money in your pocket when I buy cds. I’m not gaining anything.) lol

    Am liking this one,…

    This album is gonna tank and i’ll tell you why.

    “High Price” was the original first single but got cancelled cus it leaked early – well so what it was a hot single.
    “go girl” was a load of trash from none other than t pain (trash pain) so of course it would fail.
    “never ever” is actually not bad although its not really lead single material. her label should be promoting it properly…. BET and MTV performances would help as well as some EU/UK promotion.
    “love and s** and magic” is an awful single and terirble second choice. its just not very ciara and to release it so soon after the “never ever” guarentees its failure.

    “Im On” or “Echo (ft Young Jeezy)” should have been released instead.

    another day, another recyled track for ciara….

    first “never ever” (recycled from love in the club) and now this trash.

    rather unsuprisingly leona lewis, beyonce and esmee denters who are all working with justin timberlake turned this single down first!!!!

  32. Anonymous February 21, 2009

    Sounds very Janet like… he did the same beat with Janet on Take me now…!

  33. Anonymous February 22, 2009

    JT didn’t offer this song to Beyonce, Leona, or Esmee (who doesn’t even have the power to turn anything down.)

    Justin wrote the song for Ciara. He produced 5 tracks for Ciara.

    sounds very like Ciara and Justin did this together!
    This song is amazing! Finally Ciara bringing us back to the dance floors!!!

  35. Anonymous February 23, 2009

    well first and foremost Ciara is not washed up, never has been and never will be. Get over Goodies, stop looking for her to do da same shyt, cuz when she put out the same shyt, yall gone be like “oh this sounds Goodies…oh this sound like Get Up…man this is Like A Boy all over again” and blah to fuccin blah. Shes doing something brand new and im proud of her. Im a big Ciara fan so Ive heared everything that shes done, plus more. Im glad shes taking a new route, its fantasy ride, a 3 disc cd with 3 different moods, so you think you know what your getting from her, but you have no idea. Its good she stopped in the middle instead of making a another slow song [which wasnt bad at all] or making an extreme fast song. Stop expecting the same stuff, cuz yall know yall dont wanna hear another 1,2 step, or another Promise, cuz itll give yall a reason to just complain about it. This song is hot, its crossover and of course you know, her vidoes are never a disappointment cuz shes creative and shes with JT on top of that?. Man yall dont know a thing about music, get yall money together because fantasy ride is gonna open alot of eyes and ears.

    I can’t wait for Cici to bring this album out. She has a hardcore fanbase that would buy 2 of the same album. Beyonce does not own the business. You can not grow as an artist without changing it up. Look at all of the really big artist out today like Kanye, Lil wayne, Rihanna, and Beyonce all had to change from previous years. Never ever and her new song are doing fine. The only reason why there not moving really fast is because she hasn’t started promo until this week. It hurts that Cici is going to own 2009 doesn’t it haters. Awwww

  37. Anonymous February 24, 2009

    Ciara is trying to give us a taste of fantasy ride that is why we have sooo many songs and videos and no album. Album out May 19 so she can promote! Shut up and be glad and artist is trying to do something different instead of following everybody else.
