Ciara Ready To ‘Ride’ With New Single

Published: Monday 29th Mar 2010 by Sam

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!

  8. JayCred March 29, 2010

    Here’s hoping this ‘ride’ is almost smoother lol.

    Pretty excited, Fantasy Ride was good but it was a disaster overall.

  9. Gucci March 29, 2010

    I really miss the old dancing, crunk Ciara. i’m hoping she can channel that into her new album because the last one was just not cohesive.

    Love her though 🙂

  10. Love S** Magic March 29, 2010

    Yes Ciara!!!!!!! Bring on the summer bangers!!

    *booty hops out*

  11. XYZ March 29, 2010

  14. Nicky22 March 29, 2010

    GO CICI !!!!

    I’M ROOTING FOR YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HOPE SHE BRINGS THE FIRE.

    YES, FANTASY RIDE WAS A DECENT ALBUM , BUT SHE CAME OUT WITH POOR CHOICE OF SINGLES!!!! WORK SHOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN RELEASED!!!!!!!!!

    NOW THIS IS WHAT I WANT FROM CICI:

    A NEW LOOK
    NEW DANCE MOVES ( THE SPLITS ARE GETTING PLAYED)
    HOT HOT SOUND (NERVOUS SINCE HIGH PRICE WASNT ALL THAT)
    A NEW STYLIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. GETITIN March 29, 2010

    I’m excited to hear new Ciara music, but you are WAYYY off saying Ciara got the short end of the stick with Fantasy Ride. That album was just plain awful, and didn’t sell for a reason.

    I hope she goes back to the type of music from The Evolution. That cd was one of my faves back then

  16. Nicky22 March 29, 2010

  21. Delroy March 29, 2010

    hearing that she is going back 2 the goodies days, i for one have to say that im looking forward to hearing the tracks. i wasn’t a fan of fantasy ride tbh, it was lacking compared to her 2nd LP, which i thought was one of the best LPS that i bought in the 00’s. i’m glad to her that she is hooking up wit Luda one of my fav artists High-price was one of the biggest joints for me on the pop flop album, i wasn’t that much of a fan of it cos it was 2 mainstream. I like the Ciara who likes to go hard, and i want to see that again.

    “Chris Brown is allegedly struggling to find a venue for his birthday party – because of his attack on Rihanna last year.

    The disgraced R&B singer is hoping to hold a major birthday bash when he turns 21 in May – but club owners are unwilling to rent their venues out to him – in fear that it will ruin their reputation with Rihanna.

    According to reports, Brown has attempted to find a club to hold his celebrations in Miami, New York and Los Angeles – but has so far had no luck.

    “(Some club promoters) don’t want to mess up their relationship, or their potential relationship, with Rihanna,” a source told PageSix.”

    LMAO

  23. imready March 29, 2010

    IM READY TO RIDE FOR CI BABY !

    EVERY TIME SHE REALEASES AN ALBUM HER STANS SAY THAT IS GOING TO BE A SMASH, THIS 2 HIT WONDER B**** CAN GO HOME

  31. Carl March 29, 2010

    2 hit wonder? try 8 top 10s and 11 top 20 hits. Stay mad. #YOUBEENAFAN

  32. AuntJackie March 29, 2010

    I feel like Ciara’s time might have passed as a singer/entertainer. She’s doing so well with modeling, why not stick with that? I love her dancing to bits, and we’ll see if she can get another ‘Promise’ type of record (in terms of the longevity and quality of the song)……..now THAT was a fire song. Good luck to her!

  33. March 29, 2010

    co-sign everything aunt jackie said.

    she’s a hell of a dancer and she’s doing good with her modeling but i don’t see her being that successful on a singing tip

    she’s be a beast of a choreographer, though

  34. James March 29, 2010

    OH MY GOSH!!

    YES CIARA!!

  35. Italo March 29, 2010

    Goooooooo Cici

  36. JAROD March 29, 2010

    HELL YEAH CIARA GON COME OUT SWINGING SHE ABOUT TO PUT THESE B****** IN A COMA YEAAAH!!!!!!!!!!!!

  37. PAPARAZZI 4423 March 29, 2010

    I DON’T KNOW WHY DO PEOPLE LIE TO THEMSELVES

  38. iD0ND0 March 29, 2010

    its funny how this site d***-rides for ciara as if she didnt release 4 singles only to flop worldwide. So much money was wasted on that last effort, but still yall manage to anticipate her next “assault” on the charts. HA! please. && i love how she coincidentally waits til a certain singer takes a break to release new s***. Ciara should wait a lil while longer becuz there’s a second “certain singer” riding a #1 spot right now, a feat she hasn’t seen since “1, 2 Step”. Ci-ERROR

  39. PAPARAZZI 4423 March 29, 2010

    I LIKE CIARA BUT I KNOW A LOT OF MONEY WAS WASTE ON HER LAST ALBUM BUT I SEEN THAT FLOP COMING AND HOW CAN THESE FANS BE SO SURE THAT SHE’S NOT GOING TO FLOP THIS TIME WHEN SHE WAS OUTSOLD BY CHRISETTE MICHELLE.

  40. Music Lover March 29, 2010

    It’s Ciara’s year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  41. Dat_Boi_Get_Em March 29, 2010

    LETS “RIDE” ON THEM CICI… I BEEN HUNGRY FOR THE FIRST SINGLE AND IN JUST A FEW WEEKS I WILL GET MY MEAL. LETS GO!!!

  42. PAPARAZZI 4423 March 29, 2010

    NO IT NOT STOP LYING

  43. PAPARAZZI 4423 March 29, 2010

    IT’S GOING TO BE SO FUNNY WHEN HER FIRST WEEK SALES COME OUT

  44. TTB March 29, 2010

    I’m so happy for this s***, but i kinda tired of her and luda why not try someone else

  45. divawithatwist March 29, 2010

    I hope with this short break she has taken some singing lessons and not still singing with a soft whisper of a voice. Her dancing skills are on point but sshe can cut out the splits. Sorry but vocally Rhianna has her beat by far. Dancing/Stage present Ciara has Rhianna on lock.

  46. PAPARAZZI 4423 March 29, 2010

    WHY NOT DO A SINGLE WITH NO FEAT POOR THING I STILL CAN’T WAIT FOR HER FIRST WEEK SALES I’M GON LAUGH LIKE CRAZY

  47. suppa cc March 29, 2010

    the main reason cc flop the first time is because all the leaks
    work leaked
    keep dancin on me leaked
    echo leaked
    im on leaked
    ciara to the stage leaked
    hight price leaked
    lovers things leaked

  48. Gumaro March 29, 2010

    CIARA YES!! I loved the wish for her to come out swinging! I just envisioned all these haters tryna hold her down and then she just whaling on em!

    SLAY SLAY SLAY!!

  49. Dave March 29, 2010

    @ the Rihanna stans, girl bye! Ciara can sing & dance, watch her promise, my love, Never Ever from her release party vocals, sit, she can hold her own. Anyway, I CAN’T F***** WAIT!! But, I thought this album had no features except for the remixes. But, blah… Luda & her do have great chemistry, I hope it’s more SOLO TRACKS THOU!

  50. 12345 March 29, 2010

    “Ciara fans…REAL fans…Dont need to hate on anyone, this is a CIARA POST not a nobody else post.” Too bad there are only 5 fans

  59. Rob March 30, 2010

    I will have to wait and see but the main thing is her image. People liked Ciara when she had the tomboy style and was thicker – now thats she trying to do high fashion and skinny her masculine features are more pronounced and we lost interest even though the music was ok. Pop b****** got to look good and have good music its sad but true.

  60. Mg March 30, 2010

    Go back into the studio cici this sucks!
