Ciara Announces New Single & Album Title

Published: Thursday 31st May 2012 by Sam

Following a lengthy spell of silence and suspicion, R&B star Ciara has lifted the curtain on the title of her 5th studio album.

The moment, which also saw the singer gift the world the title of the project’s lead single too, came during an MTV press run today for new movie ‘That’s My Boy’ – the Adam Sandler comedy the 26 year old cameo’s in.

Array

What are you waiting for? The goodies (cheesy we know) await after the jump!

In the event you didn’t get that, Ci’s revealed that her Epic Records debut has been christened:

‘One Woman Army’

…while the single is titled…

‘Sweat’

And there, folks, you have it!

The ‘One Woman Army’ “era” is officially underway. And by the sound of the praise we keep hearing heaped on the finished project from our trusty insiders, many will be saluting Ms. Harris very soon. We -quite literally-can’t wait!

    Can’t wait!!! Hopefully she can make a huge comeback; she’s talented!

    • EBONY CLAWS May 31, 2012

      She’s gonna show them b****** how to DANCE correctly!!! Show them how to flex yo sweaty muscles, instead of POPPING P**** **high5s with Rihanna**

    • MISHKA May 31, 2012

      ABOUT TIME, CICI !!!!

  2. Ciara is Our Queen May 31, 2012

    Yes so excited. Ciara is coming back to snatch! Go Cici Go Cici Go

    • mobwife May 31, 2012

      Good I am so happy to see her making her way back into the game! I’m tired of the notion we can only have one person singing and dancing! It’s sickening how the game in this CONTROLLED MEDIA / MUSIC INDUSTRY has become so warped. Ppl can’t appreciate other acts because they stan for this one or that one. Just enjoy good music & cut the crap!

      • umm May 31, 2012

        yes! you said it all!

  3. Tami May 31, 2012

    This album will be her second biggest behind Goodies. It won’t start off as well as the Evolution sales wise, but after the campaign is done she will outsell it. The album is HOT. LA Reid did not give her any demos as she was apart of creating every single song and the bridge of sound on this album is perfect.

  4. Lala23 May 31, 2012

    YASSS CIARA!

    AND MIGHT I ADD……SHE LOOKS GORGEOUS IN THIS INTERVIEW……

    OOOOWWWWW!

    #OWA #SWEAT

  5. Beyonce’s Weave May 31, 2012

    Well she is working with LA Reid so I’m expecting a good project. If she was working with a mediocre record label like Universal Republic, then I would have something to itch about. Good luck Ciara.

  6. Fiercebxtch May 31, 2012

    Finally something.!!! I won’t get too excited yet until
    I hear the 1st single & see how things start out… but
    I really hope she gets the promo & airplay she needs.
    I’ve always loved her songs. 🙂

  7. mona May 31, 2012

    It’s about damn time!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can’t wait

  8. KIMBERLY May 31, 2012

    I am on for ciara. I think that she is talented and needs to be more recognized and the katty perry and others need to go. Ciara can put on a show. she is great and deserves the great comeback. I just hope her voice is stronger.

    I strongly believe that she will do great. go cici

  9. EBONY CLAWS May 31, 2012

    Your ass is gonna be jamming to it all summer long, do you know that??

  10. KnowlesFentyHarris May 31, 2012

    I think everybody is rooting for her this go round. I wana see her succeed again

  11. Marcus May 31, 2012

    LA Reid does not always come through. He gets on my nerves.

    • Ciara is Our Queen May 31, 2012

      He was with her during Goodies. Nough said

  12. diva May 31, 2012

    YAY! Perfect timing. Please show these folk that figure skating leotards, mary janes, hair fans for the white girl wigs, and over singing stolen songs is not being the best performer in the world…its being the best annoying, attention sloring and fastest-aging performer ever! Cant wait to see a real performer again. Go CC!

    • Ciara is Our Queen May 31, 2012

      Perfectly said!

    • jjenn May 31, 2012

      AGREEED!!!

    • Oh Please May 31, 2012

      BUT YOU TAKE ALL THAT AWAY SHE CAN JUST SING IN A MICROPHONE AND STILL ENTERTAIN ( WHAT A SINGER IS, NOT JUST DANCING). AND WE ALL KNOW CIARA CAN’T DO THAT EVERYONE KNOW’S IF CIARA IS NOT DANCING SHE’S PRETTY MUCH USELESS *SHRUG*

  13. Truth May 31, 2012

    LMAO! Whoever said Ciara is coming to slay……. Is delusional as f***

  14. KING#15 May 31, 2012

    EXCITED I REALLY WANT TO SEE AND HEAR EVERYTHING THIS ERA…..

    I HOPE SHE GETS AWARD SHOW SLOTS AS WELL #C-SQUAD

  15. carl May 31, 2012

    Ah when I saw this my heart skipped a beat! – she’s coming

  16. Bubbly May 31, 2012

    Yes! Can’t wait to hear the track 🙂

  17. LIKE A GOODIES SURGEON!!!!!! May 31, 2012

    Csquad STAND UP!!!!!!!!

  18. RoyalKev May 31, 2012

    I have purchased every single Ciara album(except for the 1st one) and it won’t be any different this time. I can bank on Ciara having great quality music! She’s always delivered. I’m glad she’s getting another to show what she’s got.

    http://www.thepagewithroyalkev.com

  19. John92 May 31, 2012

    im excited! hopefully she will find a way to make a comeback with quality music and creative music videos like she did in the past

  20. Sleazy May 31, 2012

    One woman Army Yesssss mother! Sweat sounds Amazing I can’t wait

  21. mkigz May 31, 2012

    Ciara is glowing in that MTV video. Damn she looks good and I am very very excited about the new project. I have bought all 4 albums and I have been a fan of her’s since 2005 (when I first actually heard a cici record that summer -goodies). I have a feeling that ‘Sweat’ might be an urban song. If that is the case then im hoping the second song will be a mixture of Pop/R&B, so that she has songs that cater to two audiences. I could also see her doing a record that has a dance sound to it. Either way im gonna be still supporting her no matter what sound her music is

  22. modjo May 31, 2012

    honestly i don see ciara as a comeback for this year , too bad although i like her music

  23. Mya May 31, 2012

    Her music is going to sound just like rihanna, usher and chris brown.

    • JustMe May 31, 2012

      i might be anticipating it, but deep down inside I have a feeling that u r right…

    • Ciara is Our Queen May 31, 2012

      Well had you been paying attention on twitter, you would know the producers for this album said it wont sound like anything on the radio. So…

      • Failure 03 May 31, 2012

        what producers say don’t always go a long way. Look at Usher’s new album, Climax was amazing and Lemme See as well, but Scream sounds like everything on the radio. Can’t always trust PR.

  24. Nicki May 31, 2012

    I do like ciara, but she’s not going to have some huge comeback like everyone is thinking. One Woman Army? I dont know about that. Andshe suppose to have a song with rick ross comimg out. She might pull in kelly rowland numbers.

  25. -_- May 31, 2012

    I don’t see it for her 🙁 I really do hope I’m wrong though!!!

  26. Siberian Prince May 31, 2012

    Yess its about time! Why are people writing her of before they even hear the first single? This is the perfect time for Ciara to release music. The only other people on the radio rite now are Nicki, Chris B, and Rihanna? Yea Ciara is comin to slay

  27. June May 31, 2012

    I dont see it for her, ciara doesnt have a strong fan base, and dont blame it on jive for not promoting her. Even if they didnt promote her properly, she still would of sold well with her last two flops. One woman army sounds lame and sweat is going to be ride #2 but this time watch her video be just like rihanna but with her same tired moves. Trying to fit in with blind hair. Rihanna wannabe.

    • Oh Please May 31, 2012

      THANK YOU WITHOUT A BIG FANBASE SHE WON’T SELL VERY WELL, UNLESS SOME MIRACLE HAPPENS AND SHE GET’S A BIGGER FANBASE THEN.

  28. nicki May 31, 2012

    She doesnt look right with blonde hair, she should try light brown. Her skin tone is too dark.

  29. TresChic May 31, 2012

    Really hope this time is successful, she works hard and deserves it.

  30. prettigurlrockD May 31, 2012

    OMG. YES!!! HURRY UP.

  31. CIARA STAN 21 May 31, 2012

    I AM SEIZURING ON THE FLOOR! TOO F****** EPIC!

    • commanderofthedancefloor May 31, 2012

      i wil say that album title gives me life “One Woman Army” it just sounds amazing, i am definetly checking for ciara.

  32. Ciara’s Prince May 31, 2012

    Smh at those who say she doesn’t have a big fanbase while yet she is the most trended artist world wide on twitter.Ciara & her One Woman Army #CSquad ain’t playing games this era. Its time Cici Reclaim her Throne!!!!

    • Oh Please May 31, 2012

      BEING MOST TRENDED ON TWITTER WOULD BE NUMBER 1 NOT THE 3RD OR 4TH MOST TRENDING TOPIC SMH

  33. Mark May 31, 2012

    Lol what throne did she ever have? All she is, is the queen of dancing because the b**** cant sing. If she want to be a dancer release excersise dvds then.

    • Oh Please May 31, 2012

      WELL JANET IS QUEEN, AALIYAH PRINCESS , AND THEN THEIR’S CIARA

  34. okkk May 31, 2012

    Excited about this!!

  35. CiFan May 31, 2012

    I’m excited for Ciara 😀 😀 she is so sweet . However she has a tendency to ramble.
    Also I really cannot get into Andy Samberg’s actual personality,
    He is such a d***** bag,

  36. kayla May 31, 2012

    good luck CiCi..hope we get the “goodies” vibe.

  37. zzz May 31, 2012

    i love her, jlo ,rihanna thoes r my girls

  38. Kyle May 31, 2012

    I’ve been a Ciara fan literally since DAY ONE so why stop now? I will always support her and news like this really excites me. Her last two projects were commercial failures and she suffered a lot of ridicule from that but I admire the fact that this woman just keeps pushing and does what she loves. Mad respect to you Ci Ci! Can’t wait for new music!!!!!

  39. D May 31, 2012

    According to industry insiders,she’s taking no prisoners this time around.They have all had nothing but good things to say.Things feel different this time around.I’ve been a fan since 05 and she has never been this tight lipped about anything.Also J.Lo has had a phenomenal year since getting back with L.A. So i believe Ciara will have great success.She and everyone around her knows this is her last chance.With that being said,they know their is no room for error or mediocrity so why would they leave room for it?They wouldnt and they wont.If you knew it was your last chance at something you would do the same.The album has been done.It seems like now theyre planning and about to rollout an extensive campaign and they want to do it correctly.She has the talent,the drive and the work ethic.This will be the comeback era.Believe it or not but people miss Ciara and are looking for a breath of fresh air.

  40. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) May 31, 2012

    YAAAAAASSSSSS

    Those titles man!! Epicness. She does know how to pick a title, that’s for sure!! I cannot wait for this. She’d better bring those summer smashes!

  41. LAX May 31, 2012

    I HAVE A GOOD FEELING SHE GOING TO SLAY AND HER ALBUM GOING TO DO VERY WELL AND EVERYONE WANTS HER BACK…..I HOPE L.A REID PROMOTES THE S*** OUT OF HER…..

    time for her to go on every show and perform and promote her album……..no more pushback ……..no more pushback for videos and all…that what messing her up because all her albums were really good but not enough money was put into her to promote

    • Oh Please May 31, 2012

      YEAH PROMOTING IS GREAT, BUT WHAT ABOUT PEOPLE GOING OUT TO BUY THE ALBUM. SURE SOME PEOPLE MAY BUY THE SINGLE BUT WILL SHE SELL A GOOD AMOUNT OF ALBUMS? THAT’S THE QUESTION.

  42. Lisa May 31, 2012

    Finally we get to see some real dancing and entertainment, welcome back Ciara!

    • Oh Please May 31, 2012

      WHOA WHAT ABOUT SINGING? I MEAN SHE IS A SINGER( NOT REALLY BUT), NOT A PROFESSIONAL DANCER. SMH

  43. Bey Fan May 31, 2012

    Good luck Ciara…..

    I’ll hold all excitement until we get a snippet or something…

    I will say that I am looking forward to her videos. Her videos be straight fiyah…

    Now as far as her slaying…. ummm when has she ever slayed??? Not hating…serious question

    • Yes Ciara is back May 31, 2012

      More than you know

      • Oh Please May 31, 2012

        LIESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

  44. POP ROYALTY ( Révolution) May 31, 2012

    don’t expect much tbh , but i will check for her 🙂

  45. MB92 May 31, 2012

    OOOOOHHHHH SOMETIMES, I GET A GOOD FEELING YEEEAAH…. LOL i got a good feeling about this one

  46. WHYBhi5 May 31, 2012

    Shucks, steups, there is a speech delay with this clip that I dont like. Anyway, CiCi will SLAY, capital S L A Y with this new album. I know it! Its gonna be a banger for sure. What I dont know is if Sweat which look to be uptempo, if its dance or what CiCi have been known for. I’ll wait impatiently and see what L.A. brings for CiCi.

  47. Bones May 31, 2012

    I don’t mean to be rude, but Ciara is not a vocalist…she’s a dancer and should open a dance agency or be like Laurie Ann Gibson and choreograph. I stopped checkin for her after her dreadful performance of “Away in a Manger” for Christmas at the White House back when Bush was in office. As much as this site drags Rihanna’s vocals, you are very contradictory when it comes to Ciara.

  48. An0thrDream May 31, 2012

    WOW!!! I CANNOT WAIT!!!

    Ciara has a stand-alone performer quite literallly IS a One Woman Army

    Im extrememly curious what sweat will look and sound like– this is gonna be EPIC

  49. chris_scott18 May 31, 2012

    Lmao at “Cameo” its always shade in a ciara post she has a legit “Role” in this movie.. Anyway

    Words Can’t explain the Excitement Rushing through my Body.. I read a tweet yesterday saying that “I wouldn’t dare call ciara a Flop, because These days its mostly the Labels that Are flops not the ARTIST”…. An that is so f****** true if ciara had big Management behind her for the last 2 like she did the 1st 2 Albums She would Still be on TOP TOP.. Ahh I can’t wait for this new single.. everybody knows that ciara is the the Best performer Alive

    • Yes Ciara is back May 31, 2012

      PREACH!!! Let these ignorant mofos know how the industry really works.

  50. IKNOWTHETRUTH May 31, 2012

    I’M SORRY BUT WE’VE SEEN THIS ALL BEFORE. I’M EXCITED BUT TO A POINT. TWO FLOPTASTIC ALBUMS AND WE’RE SUPPOSED TO BE UP IN ARMS ABOUT THIS? NO. I THOUGHT ‘BASIC INSTINCT’ WAS A GREAT TITLE AND HAD A GREAT LEAD SINGLE AND VIDEO WHEN IT FIRST CAME OUT AND I FEEL THE SAME ABOUT THIS BUT THE BALL DROPPED ON THAT ALBUM AND THE BALL COULDN’T ROLL ON ‘FANTASY RIDE’ SO LET’S HOPE L.A. REID IS GOING TO PUT WORK BEHIND HER INSTEAD OF THAT STUPID X-FACTOR SHOW. I HOPE SHE DOES MORE THAN CHANT IN HER PERFORMANCES NOW AND THAT HER THIN VOCALS ARE A LITTLE THICKER BECAUSE THIS HAS A VOICE AS THING AS FEATHERS.

  51. Sleazy May 31, 2012

    I’m a HUGE ciara fan I’m not ecpecting adele sales! I want PROGRESS she could sell 2mil WW will be fine next album she can Go harder I just want progress! Ciara is amazing she is humble sweet But don’t mess with her she will go IN! She is soooo talented and she kills me everytime she performs Kill is a MURDERER on stage! I have a great feeling she will get success whether its minor or huge! I belive in you cici Haters keep on hating you got nothing to do with your life anyway Keep it up H***

  52. TP May 31, 2012

    I cant wait! I saw her live last year and she isdef one of the best performers out there. Her voice has improved and she sang live without getting winded. Shes very underrated and makes quality music without having to sing about “sucking her cockiness”.

  53. D May 31, 2012

    The ball didn’t roll on Fantasy Ride huh? But it did very well internationally and Love, S**, Magic was a BB top 10…Yeah ummmm…Have a SEAT!

  54. commanderofthedancefloor May 31, 2012

    One Woman Army is such an amazing album title, i am looking forward to this album, this could be the begining of cicis comeback, which i have missed because there is not enough black women being recognized, we have beyonce, rihanna, and alicia keys we need more than that!!

    • Mischief May 31, 2012

      ” One woman army ” is a great album title!!!! Its refreshing from all the numbers as titles! I’m excited for this project! “Sweat” sounds great Pop rnb mix would be awesome

  55. sammie May 31, 2012

    ciara is definately bringing it down with this new album

  56. Auntie_Jackie May 31, 2012

    She’s actually not a bad singer. She’s doesn’t have the strongest voice, but she can carry a tune, and she sounds pleasant (not like a bleating goat. Sorry Navy). She can dance her ass off, there is no denying that.

    She’s a star. Period. I’m excited to see her back and focused on her career with a label that will support her.

  57. Todd May 31, 2012

    why do all these ppl have the same avatar? anyway,good luck C !

    • Todd May 31, 2012

      😀 got it now 😀

  58. Tran May 31, 2012

    Yes Ciara… Bayybyyy i been waiting for you b****, you better bring it. This b**** dancing gives me life!!!!! The queen is back.

  59. Lisa May 31, 2012

    I can’t wait to see the video, Ciara gives fire when she performs!

  60. JER May 31, 2012

    i can’t. Don’t talk about your new single’s name, just DROP it already. Ciara better come hard. Last I checked the Hot 100 was extremely competitive. Even Rihanna is getting held off the Top10 by b****** and she always flies in there. Ciara you better come girl and LA REID, honety. You better wait a minute til the song get some airplay before you send it to iTunes. Don’t send that s*** to iTunes on a Friday either or I’m comin for your bald head

  61. Saxon_Minaj May 31, 2012

    Oooooo my god i just cant wait <3<3<3<3<3

  62. BigTeam Ciara May 31, 2012

    One Woman Army I like it yass yass

  63. danny b May 31, 2012

    I do like Ciara and love her music/talent/performance..and I cant WAIT for this project… but you all need to stop saying and making outlandish predictions like “This album is gonna slay!” “This will be her second biggest after Goodies!” “She’s gonna slay the charts!” etc etc. I want CiCi to succeed as much as the next guy.. But dont jinx the album when all youve gotten are some titles. Cuz if it flops (not saying it will) fans like that are the ones that make her and the album look bad by hyping it up before anything even happens. You havent even heard the damn single yet and already saying “this is her biggest album since Goodies”…what sense does that make? Thats exactly what happened with Fantasy Ride & Basic Instinct (which i loved!) but you guys need to just chill let everything take its place and let the album do what its gonna do.

  64. Richnblack11(beyonce keep em mad) May 31, 2012

    Yass CICI we are checking for you babe…..I will say she is the best dancer in the game….show them how we do it in the ATL

  65. Reality101 May 31, 2012

    For those that say Ciara cannot sing are delusional. You may not like her voice, or the way that she sings…but the chick can def sing. I heard her years ago in the studio w one of my friends cutting records for “Evolution”. Personally, I LOVE her voice. Her control and tone are like none other. I have been a certified Stan ever since…I love the way she rides the beat. Just listen to her vocal on Never Ever! Could u imagine a powerhouse vocalist singing that?! Lol The Christmas special played Ciara…not only was her microphone off but so was the audio so all u heard was the off key choir and a raspy Ciara singing in the distance…whoever her manager was (can’t remember her name) was fired soon after…so glad the b******* is behind her! #onewomanarmy #teamCi

    • Oh Please May 31, 2012

      You no darn well Ciara can’t sing, she doesn’t even have range and every note she sings sounds the same. You know who can sing is Aaliyah(Bless her soul) she may not been a powerhouse vocalist but she has range and go high, mid-tone, and low. If you think I’m bullshitting go look at some of Aaliyah’s performances on youtube especially ( The One I Gave My Heart To). That’s what i call being able to sing without having a powerful voice.

  66. Black Barbie Doll May 31, 2012

    Haters Gon’ Hate. Stans will Stan.
    BUT CIARA IS STILL THE QUEEN. and YOU HATERS WILL BE IN FRONT OF THE TV OR SCREEN when her new single/video premieres so why hate ??
    Ciara is the truth. she’s one of the last real FEMALE entertainers besides Beyonce’ left in this game ! im so ready for her ! she better come HARD AS F*** tho

    • gia May 31, 2012

      You’re right, the only females that should be called entertainers/performers is Beyonce and Ciara they’re the only ones that can do some damage on stage.

      Beyonce Queen of Pop/R&B

      Ciara Queen of R&B/Hip Hop

  67. D.Strock May 31, 2012

    I am so beyond hyped for this. It’s unimaginable

  68. nando May 31, 2012

    i hope is none of that booty crunk music-soo 2004! she needs to get with the program and make music thats going sell!!! dance/hip hop-modern music! i really love ciara and i feel she is one of the few that are REALLY talented but i always feel like she goes the wrong direction with her music. when she came out with Justin Timberlake it was diferent and sounded like money!! she needs to step out of her comfort zone..I wish her the best!

  69. TruegeminiErock May 31, 2012

    The B**** is BACK!!!!!!

  70. coco May 31, 2012

    Oh ciara i can’t wait mami…it is your time and f the haters cuz they can die, and nobody can take ur blessings away…only God giveth

  71. MB92 June 1, 2012

    SHE BEEN GONE FOR TOO LONG NA NA NA NA NOW SHE’S BACK

  72. james June 4, 2012

    I honestly can’t even predict how this album will perform. Sweat could be a Pop song, could be an Urban song, could be a combination of the two so who knows. To the people calling Ciara a flop, let’s just be 100% real for a minute. Ciara did NOT have a lot of control over Fantasy Ride and Basic Instinct. They were NOT promoted and they both leaked months before they released and the singles did NOT perform well, so why wouldn’t they flop. Rihanna getting ready ro release the 5th single off TT and its only sold 850K and Rihanna, promoted TF out of that album and WTF and WHYB were both huge hits, that’s not a lot, especially considering how Rihanna is one of the top 5 female artists out now. Nicki is one of the biggest, if not the biggest flop of the year. She had one of the promo campaigns I’ve seen in yearsfor PFRR: Grammys, American Idol, Superbowl, every major talk show, radio station and magazine had Nicki and the first two singles peaked in the top 10 before the album was released and its only sold 485K in 2 months, now that’s a flop. Ciara just revealed the album title and first single name 2 days ago, so I’m pretty sure over the next wk or so, were gonna start hearing about the album. But what I’m most shocked about is that we’ve yet to get a leaked song this era so obviously Ciara and LA Reid are doing something great work this era
