After a brief hiatus from the spotlight, R&B star Ciara is set to launch another assault on the charts with new single ‘Ride’. Confirmed to be the first official release from the singer’s as yet untitled fourth studio LP, it’s also been revealed that long-time collaborator Ludacris will feature on the record.
What’s more, it appears the 24 year old’s spell of silence wasn’t spent being idle; the album – which has been in production since summer last year -is as good as completed, with the video for ‘Ride’ set to be shot in the next few days. Yes…days! Fans can expect to hear the Tricky Stewart/ The-Dream produced song anytime within the next few weeks.
Exciting stuff! As one of those who feel Ms. Harris got the short end of the stick with her ‘Fantasy Ride’ project, I’m particularly eager to see her succeed this go round – granted the material is up-to-par. Sources close to the project allude to Ciara taking it back to her grittier days, which I’m pretty indifferent about, considering I’ve enjoyed both her earlier and more recent (Pop-oriented) offerings. Fingers crossed she comes out swinging!
