From The Vault: Ciara – ‘Go Girl’

Published: Sunday 29th Aug 2010 by Sam


Lifted from the International version of Ciara’s ill-fated ‘Fantasy Ride’, this week’s classic From The Vault clip is 2008’s ‘Go Girl’. A sassy pro-female anthem, the song’s accompanying video demanded an equally hard-hitting video – which Ciara and director Melina delivered with ten-fold.

Criminally underrated, the video stands as one of the R&B stars best (despite ironically performing worst). From its futuristic Robo-diva nod, to the ironic spin on the female in the workplace, to the killer choreography, it boasts all the features of an engaging, entertaining and, above all, cracking video! Ciara, we salute you…

    Salute! This is my favorite Ciara video. It’s almost as good as Like A Boy and the forever classic Promise video. Ciara is the queen of dance videos.

  5. ADE August 29, 2010

  13. Carmello August 29, 2010

    Go girl was one of the best videos of 2008. The chair split and the sliding on the floor was so creative and hot. I love this artistic Ciara.

  14. Tiff August 29, 2010

    I liked this song when it came out. I dont know why it flopped so damn hard.

  15. BENJAMIN August 29, 2010

    This was one of the best videos of 2008, I was very pissed when she had shelved her album another 7 months after this, only to get the lukewarm poptube “Never Ever.” I think by this time we started to see the laziness of her record label, and it is still lazier than ever.

  16. Jazybelle August 29, 2010

    I hope she would not flop this time cuz Ciara can dance circles around every single b**** in the industry she’s a beast.

  17. Yan August 29, 2010

    this video/song is amazing. one of Ciara’s best work.

  18. Teflon Boy August 29, 2010

    Yes, this is one of the best videos of recent memory. Funny, I had to have a watch of it recently…, just goes hard from top to bottom. I agree she’s mad masc in the metal outfit but I think that works for her in a Grace Jones kinda way, because the thing she has that separates her from Aaliyah and maybe even Janet is the slight androgeny she has going on that although initially a negative she’s instead built into her repertoire and made it a unique feature of her act. I like that because it pulls her into her own lane.

    Anyway, this video is flawless IMO. Alos, it really goes with the robotically programmed style of the song, her voice really fits with T-Pain’s tightly vacuumed shout-outs. I personally would love to write and perform a song like this. For me this was a step in the right direction for Ciara that unfortunately the masses didn’t buy into.

  19. Soulful Roses August 29, 2010

    I still love this song. 🙂
    And I know Cicis’ going to do well this time around. #TEAMCIARA

  20. WHY?? August 29, 2010

    @TEFLON BOY
    Please don’t compare her to Aaliyah an d ESPECIALLY NOT Janet. C’mon this vid was aight nun major. I do think the song is quite good though.
    I mean yall are overdoing it. It was nothing earth-shattering (i.e. songs like Whitney’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody”, Janet’s “Rhythm Nation”, Michael’s “Beat It”, Madonna’s “Dress You Up”, Billy Idol’s “White Wedding” Beyonce’s “Irreplaceable” Rihanna’s “Umbrella” Gaga’s “Bad Romance” CB’s “With You”, or even her own “Promise” etc.) It was just alright. REAL mediocre nothing compared to none of the songs/videos above. Just saying i want Ciara to be as eager as she once was

  21. CIARADABESS August 29, 2010

    Also BEYAKA and Lady Gaga copied Ciara Go girl in her Sweet dreams and Paparazzi music video.

    Of course her fans will never admit it.

  22. Dave August 29, 2010

    I liked the video. I’m not gonna say the Choreo was killer, but it was nice

  23. DION-ISH August 29, 2010

    DID HE CALL THIS A CLASSIC?!?!?

    WHHJSFJHFHJ #DIES …I Cant.

  24. Joseph August 29, 2010

    *Takes hat off* This is a classic video

    too bad it performed as bad as it did

    I wouldnt even get mad if she jumped off a table and landed in the splits in another video of hers, not enough ppl saw that.

  25. Sistah Souljer August 29, 2010

    ^^^ LOL!! That aerial split move was hot.

    Nobody else could do that, they just can’t.

    Ciara runs circles around these chicks with the moves.

  26. Teflon Boy August 29, 2010

    @WHY…, Lol don’t make the mistake of thinkin I think she is comparable to either Aaliyah nor Janet in terms of talent because in two words ‘she isn’t’…, but what offers that they don’t is her natural androgeny, that’s more the point I was making.

  27. ciarastanforlife August 30, 2010

    ATTENTION!!! CIARA WILL SUCCEED THIS TIMEE AROUND SO U HATERS MIGHT AS WELL COMMITT SUICIDE LMAOOO AN THIS IS ONE OF CIARAS BEST VIDEOS….. BASIC INSTINCT ON THE WAY, REQUEST GIMME DAT AN SPEECHLESS

  30. AMAZING CiCi August 30, 2010

    Go girl is such an absolutely amazing piece of work. It is a real pity that Ciara and TPain were not shot to super star status for this work. Instead they shove cartoon characters like nicki and riri down our throats and still wonder why music isnt selling.

    The MOST amazing thing about ciara is that she doesnt need huge numbers of dancers, fancy robots, or outlandish costumes to make the BEST videos on the planet. It is always her ALONE with her few dancers and a male support. That shows REAL talent

  31. True Blue August 30, 2010

    That was indeed a hot vid, even though I wasn’t a huge fan of the song.

  32. ciara has NEVER flopped August 30, 2010

    I paid $27.95 for Fantasy Ride, while other CDs were selling for $9 to $17. HER MUSIC COMPANY IS OVERPRICING FOR HER WORK, DURING THIS RECESSION WHILE SMART MUSIC COMPANIES ARE REDUCING THE PRICE OF CDs.

    Her music was being heavily bootlegged in the black community which is her PRIME MARKET BECAUSE THEY REFUSE TO MARKET HER UNDER A POP LABEL TO ALLOW HER TO REACH A LARGER AUDIENCE. she needs a new record label.

    Justin Bieber only sells for $8/copy at walmart.

  33. ThePleasurePrincipal August 30, 2010

    If you paid over $15 for a CD, you’ve been gipped, hoodwinked, and bamboozled; Ciara’s ‘Go Girl’ was one of my favorite songs from her besides ‘Goodies’ she deserves success cause she’s definitely putting in the work…

    If you already have or can carry a handbag, many things are called, but most of the names inseparable from the bag is hot . From the earliest days of the fashionable woman had China Knock Off Handbags illustrate his sense of style and fashion with age and so does the trend of fashion and design handbags.
