Ciara Changes Album Title / iTunes Reveals Official Cover

Published: Monday 15th Apr 2013 by Sam

Ciara has gone on record to describe her fifth studio album as her most personal yet, and it seems she’s keen that reflects in its title.

Initially christened ‘One Woman Army’, as of one hour ago, iTunes now has the project simply listed as ‘Ciara’. The official artwork above was also included in the re-tooled listing which came binded with the confirmed tracklisting.

Taking to Instagram once the news begun doing the fan rounds, the dynamo performer posted a confirmation of sorts:

**************

It goes without saying that many will have much to say, yet we think the name change makes so much sense.

Put simply, the false-starts at the beginning of the project somewhat muddied the ‘One Woman Army’ name. So, from our vantage point, it’s smart that Cici is starting afresh with a new lead single (‘Body Party’) and ensuring this project is, at the very least, given a legitimate chance without being impacted by any drama associated with ‘OWA’.

  3. Steph April 15, 2013

    YASSSSSSSSSSSS! WERK CICI!

  4. Ugh! Really? April 15, 2013

    Um…no Sorry????

  5. Ugh! Really? April 15, 2013

    Has no one noticed she didn’t include ‘Sorry’ on the cd????

    • Ciara April 15, 2013

      that track listing had it’s own post yesterday.

    • RG2 April 15, 2013

      i caught on to that.

    • HOWYOULIKEIT April 15, 2013

      cause it flopped

    • social1 April 15, 2013

      I thought that was weird too, that “Sorry” and “Got Me Good”, didn’t make the final tracklist. And the cut she did with Rick Ross, called “Boy Outta Here”, didn’t make it either. Weird. Maybe they’ll be on the Deluxe version of the cd.

      • Ugh! Really? April 15, 2013

        I hope so!

  6. RG2 April 15, 2013

    Hot pic, but why change the title now? Just wondering thats all.

  7. Alex April 15, 2013

    What on earth?! ‘Ciara’ as the album title?! New artists that release their first LP use a self-title for their album! No wonder Ciara can’t be considered a credible artist. Ridiculous.

    • Music Soul Harmony April 15, 2013

      EXACTLY. 9 years into the game and she self-titles it. This is what I have been saying about not evolving into her artistry. SMH. One woman army was a start in the right path.

    • MAZ April 15, 2013

      what about ‘Janet’, ‘Aaliyah’, ‘Britney’ etc….STFU…It fits perf. Like she’s reintroducing herself.

      • Music Soul Harmony April 15, 2013

        You have a point but those artists weren’t flopping at that point in their careers either. She’s reintroducing herself with ten tracks?? Mmmkay….She better hope that helps.

      • Mark111 April 15, 2013

        @Mazm Right?! These haters knows nothing. I think it’s fitting and like the ladies you named, those were they’re most personal albums.

  8. Sleazy April 15, 2013

    Werk b****!!!!!!!! Its simple Yet fierce and not a mess and to busy…. And its suits the title well “CIARA”

  9. Tisha April 15, 2013

    I liked One Woman Army better because it expressed what she’s been through in her career and how she hasn’t given up and still fights. Ciara…color me bored.

    I’m not totally feeling the album artwork either but I will give her my support if the music is good, she has shown how much she’ll work when the time comes.

    • Music Soul Harmony April 15, 2013

      It was a fresh unique and original idea. No one was doing a title like that and she abandons it. SMH.

  10. Sharon needles April 15, 2013

    Omg I actually love it its plain Yet her presents changes the whole vibe and making it pop!

  11. MAZ April 15, 2013

    Great Album cover. Glad she changed the name. The direction of the album changed since she first announced it. ‘Ciara’ is much better than ‘One Woman Army’. Also people complaining about 10 tracks. Stfu. Why would she waste her money putting more tracks on there when no one is going to buy it. Wish her well. I’ll certainly be buying it.

  12. Queenriah April 15, 2013

    I love it! I’m glad its just her and not another Over thinked messy weird looking album cover to “stand out” and the artist thinking its creative when its a damn mess

  13. Music Soul Harmony April 15, 2013

    So I’m assuming she’s become so blacklisted in the industry, she got to refresh ppl’s memory about her name and her brand. How sad honestly. At least the cover is nice tho but it’s really starting to look like she’s giving up on her creative pursuits and reducing herself more and more. I’m just done. She came a long way for THIS. Smh.

  14. Navy Sailor!!! April 15, 2013

    BEST OF LUCK TO HER 🙂

  15. Yes April 15, 2013

    Yes I agree OWA has been in the air for a year now new tittle was needed !

    • Music Soul Harmony April 15, 2013

      It hasn’t been a year yet if she only announced it in the fall.

  16. JuanR April 15, 2013

    I don’t really like a self titled albums. Maybe if it’s your first album… that’s ok.

  17. Cici wat now? April 15, 2013

    Ummm…i may support cici and her movement but
    I can’t deal with this. I feel like over the past year up till
    Now I’m confused I think a lot of her fans r confused. How
    U gon change the title of the album that u been promoted
    For the pass 3 interviews. Idk. I want Cici to be on top of
    The charts and make a permanent comeback but this
    Is quite depressing for me as well as for other Ciara fans.

    • Beyheaven April 15, 2013

      I don’t understand Ciara needs your support but instead you guys b#&$% and complain. She is doing all she can. Stop complaining and buy this damn album. F#$& the name change it really doesn’t matter. What fan goes on a blog and talks about thier fave?

  18. Jay Jay April 15, 2013

    I actually prefer the album called Ciara rather than One woman army. I even said when she announced “one woman army” that the album should of been just “Ciara”. I just don’t see any straight men buying an album called one woman army, just sounds it has a one specific audience. I just hope and pray Overdose gets full single treatment

    SN – I wanted more than 10 tracks but that’s normal nowadays so I’m not surprised.

    • Navy Sailor!!! April 15, 2013

      Straight men aren’t gonna buy a Ciara cd regardless…

    • Music Soul Harmony April 15, 2013

      Some guys like that tough women image though. And I don’t think a lot of straight guys are gonna buy it anyways esp when she left Sweat off the album with 2 chainz.

  19. HOTSTUFF April 15, 2013

    CHANGING THE ALBUM TITLE ?? LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOO THIS HEAUX STILL TRYING ? #THESTRUGGLE

    • rh April 15, 2013

      shut up dumb b**** damn.

  20. the voice April 15, 2013

    * sigh*

    Ok Ciara… thanks for that….now get off the internet and do some SHOWS to promote ur ish in person with ur fans…..

    and I hope SORRY is on the CD girl.

    • i slay April 15, 2013

      sorry didnt make he cut cause it flooped.

  21. DSTROCK April 15, 2013

    At least ‘Overdose’ made the cut. There’s still hope yet!

  22. christinastherealtalent April 15, 2013

    im waiting for Kelly Rowland to change her album title….i still havent connected with “talk a good game”

  23. HOTSTUFF April 15, 2013

    IN THE MEANWHILE…..THAT RIHANNA REIGN JUST WONT LET UP #DEAL

    • Girl please April 15, 2013

      The very same one that cancelled ANOTHER show…

  24. Suicide Blonde April 15, 2013

    I liked the old title ‘One Man Army’ but good for him, he should do whatever it makes him happy, you go boy.

    • Music Soul Harmony April 15, 2013

      b**** shut up. That shade is not even cute. Try again. #tired

      • Music Soul Harmony April 15, 2013

        also you can’t talk about someone looking like a man when you are a grandonna stan looking like a female albino version of the HULK. Kii.

      • DOSSOME April 15, 2013

        DEAD

      • Suicide Blonde April 15, 2013

        Are you talking about Madonna, you know she’s a shemale, everybody knows that but Ciaro is a man…I really like him, i wish Ciaro the best.

  25. POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) April 15, 2013

    OMG , so CIARA now Read My Comments In Here ?!! 😯

    I think I should behave then !!

    I LOVE the Album Cover and i wish she has her “JANET” moment now that she had this album named “CIARA” .

    I love the new changes !!

  26. Jay Jay April 15, 2013

    I’m still buying the album I’m sure it’s going to be better than Basic instinct. And I want ciara to win I can care less if she sells 3000, or 300,000 first week. Shade her all you want but at least she’s trying to do her best and she’s a millionaire and have accomplished a lot. What have some of y’all accomplished?

  27. DOSSOME April 15, 2013

    Good luck…you’ll need it

  28. Letruth April 15, 2013

    I feel like shes going to announce that she is going to release two albums. Shes recorded so much music. And Ciara is a good title because the album is fully her vision and shes in control.

  29. Lovebird (I’m legit) April 15, 2013

    Absolute mess, the album is about 2 months away from release and she changes the title now. This girl is clueless, but anyway I’m just happy I get to have the mastered for iTunes versions of living it up and overdose, can’t wait.

    • DOSSOME April 15, 2013

      If OVERDOSE doesn’t get single treatment,and with adequate promo……..then she should just forget it

  30. WHUT April 15, 2013

    WHERE’S THE FOSSIL POST SAMANTHA W****!!!!!!!!!!

    AHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAhAHA!!!!!!!!!

    The SHOW is COMPLETE and the B**** PERFORMED NAWT ONE NEW SONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    NAWT ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    LAWDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAhAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!

    DISASTROUSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  31. MaZ April 15, 2013

    10 tracks album looks short! Wish it would have at least 12 tracks. Looks like she has created with Future a whole new album. Sad we couldn’t hear more of One Woman Army. I do understand her point starting new and fresh.

    • DOSSOME April 15, 2013

      Most artists do 10 tracks these days..

  32. Antonio April 15, 2013

    I like the title chanqe tbh. One Woman Army wasn’t bad but the singqles she dropped didn’t really resonate with an “one woman army” especially Sweat and GMG, even though Iiked those sonqs, they were basic af and typical Ciara sonqs. I think she chanqed the title to her name to make ppl remember who she is and the 10 sonqs she’s selected seem good imo. Body Party has been great reviews from critics unlike Sweat, GMG and Sorry which all got mixed reviews. Overdose and Livin’ It Up were refiews by critics and magazines last year and got amazinq reviews. DUI, I’m Out, Read My Lips and Sophomore all sound good too. I kinda had a feelinq she was gonna start a whole album campaign/marketing strategy cuss at the beginninq of the year, she completely stopped mentioninq Sorry and GMG. She just needs to start promotinq the album like crazy. Hit up 106, Wendy Williams, Ellen, The View, Letterman, Leno, Fallon, Kimmel, Lopez, Conan, GMA, Kelly & Michael, Today Show, do some promotional concerts where she previews sonqs on the albums and stay active on Twiiter, IG and FB and stay active in the summer because even if Body Party doesn’t do extremely well, she can definitely drop 2 hot summer sinqles

  33. Mark111 April 15, 2013

    Good move, that what happen to the last two, they were dragged out so long that no one cared. This is a whole new album, OWM just didn’t workout. BUT, what she should do is release OWA as a mixtape, like TODAY! (it should’ve been a mixtape from the start. You see what Cassie doing (it’s not gonna work for her) but you see.

  34. Tyree April 15, 2013

    I love it the new album title makes more sense then some dum ass one women army !! & I’m to excited for read my lips , overdose , sophomore , where you go & I’m glad she left sorry behind & got me good because Its like she started the new movement over Yess !!!!

  35. HOTSTUFF April 15, 2013

    i dont like ciara because her voice is limited, shes just a glorified dancer, shes not creative her videos are the same boring s*** etc… however ive just listened to “living it up” and it is GREAT !!! what is this flop waiting on to release it ?!

    • NΛVI April 15, 2013

      dose everything that comes out your mouth always gotta be so negative..would it kill you to overlook the bad and try to see the good in other atistt, smh at some of my fellow navi members.

      • HOTSTUFF April 15, 2013

        only puh-lease i don’t like ciara & i wont fake it….most of the artists TJG stans for i dont like thats the reason most of my comments are negative.

        But i do see the good in those artists below, so i will only have positive to say:

        i like janet, madonna, mariah, Lana, michael jackson, toni braxton, katy perry, adele, bruno mars, Aaliyah…

    • Neigh-Neigh Leakes April 15, 2013

      “…her voice is limited”
      Says the Rihanna stan?

    • DOSSOME April 15, 2013

      Is it possible to give constructive criticism without bordering on HATE…some of you are just the worst…sigh

      • HOTSTUFF April 15, 2013

        whatever b**** HOTSTUFF will not be sugar coating anything concerning ciara so suck it up and deal with it.

  36. NΛVI April 15, 2013

    OMg this shot is on point, this look promising. Giving me Janet tease. With the right material and team, Ciara can actually make it huge. YES YES Overdose and Living it up make the cut!!

  37. DOSSOME April 15, 2013

    YEAR OF THE WOMAN to TALK A GOOD GAME…ONE WOMAN ARMY to CIARA.I don’t quite get it.If they had already titled their albums a year prior,then i assumed they knew the direction they were taking with their music #IJS

    • POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) April 15, 2013

      i see your point.

  38. Cici wat now? April 15, 2013

    I guess… But I still feel a certain way about all of this
    She needs a better team and she also needs to fire
    Her manager and get a new one because this era is
    F*cked up. 10 songs come on she couldve at least gave
    The fans 13 like what happened to all those songs she recorded
    Late nights in the studio. I don’t understand b****.

  39. Neigh-Neigh Leakes April 15, 2013

    Hmmm.
    I won’t be buying because her singles just haven’t been doing it for me but goodluck to you Cici.
    When you can finally hop off of Future’s johnson and put everything into your career is when I’ll support you again.
    Wish her the best with this era though.

  40. alessandro April 15, 2013

    • CCFan007 April 15, 2013

      wow -___- boy stawp! She already said that sweat will not be on this album.

    • XXX April 16, 2013

      honestly…it doesn’t matter… most of the people to not listen to cds anymore…so if you’ll buy it on itunes, buy “sorry” and “got me good”, too and put them onto the list…it’s not like they were not released

  42. NΛVI April 15, 2013

    There’s probably a deluxe version, who knows.

  43. mc the place to be!! April 15, 2013

    i like it i love her boots! thank god overdose made the cut!

  44. CCFan007 April 15, 2013

    The album artwork is DOPE! Definitely her best to date 🙂

  45. Caramelboi April 15, 2013

    Ciara miss gurl I am rooting for u to win and to reach the top like u once were. I am really feeling the album cover to,but u had a lot of buzz going for u for this album from the owa movement, the unveiling of the sorry cover and song to the got me good premiering of the song and video the same time and perform on jimmy kimmel and the little jumbotron in nyc to body party single,and being on the scene all happy and in love with future to ur killer performances on television. Also the way u revealed ur tracklisting of only 10 damn songs? I can’t deal with u rite now….why the name change?? Why. No sorry? Where the rick ross feature song? What now how r u gonna keep ur harrdcorre

  46. Caramelboi April 15, 2013

  47. Caramelboi April 15, 2013

    I am still gonna support u cici bcuz u gonna need it,but I was dissapointed like ur hardcore fans bcuz u need to win. Don’t drop the ball like brandy and xtina did with there good albums which I still supported.

  48. jamelisyours April 15, 2013

    i’m lost yet completely understand it. Yes, OWA had some setbacks and I was thinking at some point she should have a self-titled album but One Woman Army is an amazing title that’s gone to waste. Also, I loved the song OWA but I really hope Only One makes the deluxe if there is one because we been waiting way too long for 10 tracks!!! OH and I just don’t believe thats the cover…she would have her “Ciara font” i can only assume but idk at this point.

  49. udontknowme April 15, 2013

    I LOVE IT! PRE-ORDER IT GUYS!;)

  50. XXX April 16, 2013

    Love the Cover. But 10 tracks? Come on…Sorry and Got me Good were nice songs. Hopefully she puts them on the Deluxe Edition.

    I did like the title “One Woman Army”. But to be honest, who cares? If she does not start promoting it the right way it’ll flop anyway…

    She is trying to get the success Kelly had with “Motivation”. But Kelly is by far more known than Ciara and still lives from Destiny’s Child. Ciara needs two singles…One for the main pop audience and one for the rnb audience.

    I always thought Ciara is the perfect act to make a double disc. One with nice uptempo bangers and pop songs and one with more s*** songs like “Promise”. If that was promoted the right way she could have been on top.

    But instead she is always releasing the same song with a different title…Body Party sounds like Promise, Sweat sounds like Work, sounds like Got me Good, sounds like Get Right and so on…

    She needs a theme and stop trying to act like she’s still ghetto

  51. XXX April 16, 2013

    And by the way…A song featuring you?! On your album of about ten songs?

    You can put a song fet. you on a deluxe edition as a bonus track (except it’s like a f****** producer feat. you, so you’re the only one singing on it nonetheless)

    With that being said, I think a song with Diplo/Major Lazer and Ciara would be hot.

    Girl, try something new. I can imagine your voice on some indie/electronic midtempo number, too. a little diversification never hurts. ask rihanna, that’s why she’s that famous in the first place…

  52. Dev April 16, 2013

    That is one badass album cover! If Ciara could sing and deliver music as good as this cover is, i’d buy 2000 covers, make a bed outta it and get to work.

  53. JER April 16, 2013

    I hate mirror image and multiple image pose covers. Pick ONE picture and ONE pose. This basic s*** makes it look like you couldn’t decide which angel you wanted C-error’s busted manface to look. Ch…flip it, flop it, raise the contrast, apply 300 filters and it’s still C-error manface.

  54. Miko April 16, 2013

    She needs to release “Overdose” as a first single from this album… Not because I love this track soo much 😀 but it’s sure top10 hit.

  55. LTM April 16, 2013

    I don’t like the album title being just Ciara(maybe iTunes got it wrong?) but I can care less. Im just mad that Sorry isn’t on the list because it’s one of Ciara’s best singles. I also don’t like how short the album is. People will be less willing to buy a full album that only has 10 songs, especially if they already brought one on iTunes.

    And I’m still confused as to why Overdose hasn’t been released when fans haters and casual listeners alike agree it needs to be a single.
