Ciara Speaks on Studio Sessions, L.A. Reid

Published: Wednesday 20th Jul 2011 by Rashad

Though killing stages on the nationwide Radio Malibu Boom Station Invasion Concert, R&B princess Ciara wasn’t too busy to stop and divulge information about the happenings of her career.  The ‘Get Up’ singer is said to be gearing up for recording sessions as well as a move to new label home Epic Records.

See what else the ‘Promise’ singer is expecting in the near future after the jump:

Via BoomBox:

Q: Who have you been in the studio with recently?

A:  Well, you know what, I’ll just say this: I’ve been vibing and really having a fun time by getting to see what’s out there. I just have to say that I’m so excited about the things that are happening. Sooner or later I really will be able to tell my fans exactly what is happening. There’s things I’ve been saying so I can’t wait to share those things with my fans.

I do want team Ciara to know and all of my fans to know that things have been really exciting and I can’t wait to let them know more.

Q:  There are reports that L.A. Reid joined Epic Label Group and that you were going to be an artist under his roster. Can you confirm that?

A:  I don’t even know what you’re talking about [laughs]. Nah, I’m totally just playing. I think you have to ask L.A. kinda what’s going on. I can’t really comment on what’s happening and the system. I cant really say too much. I dont really know too much about the breakdown of everything.

Q:  When you perform, what song do you feel grabs the most attention?

A:  ‘1, 2 Step.’ And oh, ‘Ride,’ of course. It’s always amazing for me to see my fans in Africa singing ‘Ride,’ because it’s a slow record. Normally, dance records are easier to digest, universally. Of course, I have more records to do, but ‘1, 2 Step’ goes down as one of my biggest songs. What’s crazy is that ‘Goodies’ sat at No. 1 longer then ‘1, 2 Step’ did. It just seems to be one that when I do it, every time, people go crazy.

Q:  Recently you’ve been in the news for attending the wedding of your friend, R&B singer Monica. Another friend of yours, Kim Kardashian, is set to wed as well. How do you feel at this point in your life being 25 and possibly taking a similar step soon?

A:   The way that I look at it, I’m so lost in the zone right now of what I’m doing that when that happens in my life, I believe that it’ll happen at the perfect time. You can’t put a time marker on anything like that and you can’t say exactly when you want to do it; it just kinda falls in place. That’s something I definitely look forward to because in my career, you do sacrifice a lot by just putting so much time and effort into it, but I do believe when that moment happens it’s going to be amazing. I have a whole breakdown of how I see it. I’m not rushing the idea of it.

    Please leave the “B” word off this post please. The “B” word is out on it’s own no comparisons whatsoever. Stop please. Ciara has too much to prove right now and is not quarter way yet. First she have to figure out whether or not she wants to sing, dance or both,,and she will be ok.

  16. YUPPITSME July 20, 2011

    -Imma give her 1 more chance & that’s it! Come on now Ciara, “Get It Right.”-Thx.

  17. YOOSONDALOOSE July 20, 2011

    She is amazing!
    I Love Ciara!
    I hope the reports are true!
    I want her to get a good deal with L.A. Reid!

  18. liSA July 20, 2011

    YEAH SHE GETTING BACK WITH L.A REID, HE WAS THE ONE WHO SIGNED HER FROM THE BEGINNING NOW SHE CAN GO GET IT AGAIN BECAUSE SHE IS NO LONGER WITH THAT JIVE COMPANY, THAT’S A BLESSING!

  19. LISA July 20, 2011

    YEAH I’M GLAD FOR HER, SHE GOT AWAY FROM THAT JIVE COMPANY AND GOING BACK TO HER ROOTS SO WE CAN GET THAT REAL ENTERTAINMENT AND GOOD SONGS FROM HER AGAIN!

  20. Istan4goodmusic July 20, 2011

    Ciara looks SO BEAUTIFUL in the picture. I wish her the best success. I can’t til her new single emerges so we can have a fresh face and new sound besides Blahonce bombarding us!

  21. dale_23 July 20, 2011

    I, FOR ONE, AM GLAD SHE’S UST TAKING THINGS EASY AND LETTING EVERYTHING FALL IN PLACE.

    SHE’S DOING NATIONWIDE & INTERNATIONAL TOURS, STACKING THAT PAPER, AND BELIEVING THAT GOD WILL HANDLE THE REST. NO BETTER WAY TO GO ABOUT IT IF U ASK ME.

    JIVE WAS IN IT FOR THE MONEY INSTEAD OF THE ARTISTRY..”IF IT AINT POP, IT AINT WORTH IT” SHOULD BE THEIR MOTTO. BUT NOW SHE’S BACK UNDER A FAMILIAR FACE, HE CAN GIVE HER THE ATTENTION AND DIRECTION SHE NEEDS WITH THI S NEW ALBUM.

    I’M EXCITED.

  26. Fantasy Ride July 20, 2011

    CiCi’s gonna bring it

  27. Princebarbietv July 20, 2011

    That picture! Ready for the new music.

  28. Mykey July 20, 2011

    Haters gonna hate. When It comes to music & dancing. Ciara has it. She just needs the right people to back her up. I smell a comeback!

  29. OKAYWHATSUP……SHUTUP July 20, 2011

    I truly believe that this generation is so screwed up that real talent always get the most hated comments. If Ciara would have came out when Nicki Drake and Lady Gaga came out she would be the hottest RNB entertainer right now. She had a horrible team POINTBLAKEPERIOD. I bought her last two albums and the only REASON it didn’t do good bc her markerting team DID NOT MARKET HER!!! If she would have dropped High Price, Dance With Me, Like a Surgeon and Echo her Fantasy album would have sold. And if she would have dropped I Run It, Yeah I Know, and You Can Get It her Basic Instincts album would have sold. There’s only so much she can do as an artist to sell her music and we all know she did not have the team. Now that she is back with LA Reid watch her claim her spot. Remember Usher went thru the same thing and look what happen to him when he went back to his roots!

  30. OKAYWHATSUP……SHUTUP July 20, 2011

    POINTBLANKPERIOD my bad typing too fast

  31. devon July 20, 2011

    First!..I’m gonna say I was obessed with ciara from the first time I heard goodies in 2004. I have her dance dvd , I bought all four albums and have every magazine all the to her first cover with vibe vixen!….I also have all Beyonce albums, live dvd’s. Went to her concert at the. WYNN IN LAS VEGAS , which also was recoreded onto a dvd in which I bought. With that I’m just saying I’m not biased!…but every album beyonce takes a lil from here & there & really doesn’t have a sound of her own(no shade)…when Queen Beyonce came out with Diva & all of the uptempo songz on Sasha fierce I felt she swaggerjaked ciaras urban dancing style…yeah
    A lot of people can sing & dance but they do basic chereography, Nothing special that anyone else could not do. NO matter what!!!!!!one thing I can give CICI credit on is she has her own dancing stlye & no female of our generation is up to par as far as her performances.

  32. ArtistK July 21, 2011

    CIARA WILL ROCK THE CHARTS AGAIN AND TAKE OVER POP MUSIC! BABY JANET!

  33. nice_gurl July 21, 2011

    We need some new hits from her and I want her to do more R&B style.

  34. anna July 21, 2011

    go ciciiiiiiiii

  35. therealest July 21, 2011
