Nicki Minaj To Feature On Ciara’s ‘Livin’ It Up’

Published: Sunday 9th Jun 2013 by David

They’re rarely spotted out in public together, but it seems Nicki Minaj and Ciara have developed quite the friendship in recent months.

For, after Ciara lent her skills to the Rapper’s 2012 EP ‘The Re-Up’ and Minaj featured on her 2013 cut ‘I’m Out’, it has now emerged that the pair collaborated again on Ciara‘s feel good jam ‘Livin’ It Up‘, lifted from hew new LP ‘Ciara’.

In a track list uploaded to Amazon Germany, Minaj was confirmed as the featuring act on the song- which is now available to listen to here.

Marking their latest collaborative effort together, the Rapper’s contribution to the cut comes after she confirmed she was to feature on ‘Ciara‘ on more than one song…the first being ‘Out‘ and the second being what we know is ‘Livin‘.

No doubt one of the strongest jams to come from the ‘Promise’ belle in some time, the euphoric nature of the cut has us all too excited for its potential as a single…but do hope Minaj ditches the aggression she usually serves up to deliver a cute, fun and feminine feel for her verse.

    I love how the two flops are so supportive of each other to bad they’ll never reach King Beys level.

      At least my favs are releasing music, where’s Beyonce’s single??? Also no one is a bigger FLOP than Solange Knowles. Is True certified triple trash bag yet?

    What’s the point of buying the album when majority of those songs are out already

    • Navy Sailor June 9, 2013

      Exactly. We’ve heard 6/11 tracks. Well you might as well say 7 since the BP Remix is probably nothing more than an extra rap verse. What a mess.

    • BEY&CI June 9, 2013


      • Navy Sailor June 9, 2013

        It’s the truth sweetheart. Body Party, Sophomore, I’m out, LIU, Overdose and Super Turnt Up are all available on YouTube. I could see if she had 14 or 15 tracks (minus the BP REmix), but 7/11?! Come on now!

    • Hive June 9, 2013

      Yea not a smart move on her part.

    • lexi June 10, 2013

      Exactly, i think she should release it as a mixtape and do some shows to get people hype. Then go back into the studio for a new album.

  3. Navy Sailor June 9, 2013

    I actually like that song. Sophomore is hot too. It reminds me of classic ’05 Ciara.

  4. nicko June 9, 2013

    idgaf bout ciara, when the tracks comes out, im only going to listen to Nicki’s verse and btw, why does her album only have 12 tracks ? :/

    • BEY&CI June 9, 2013


  5. YOOSONDALOOSE June 9, 2013

    I dont think Nicki will bring anything, to an already decent track, I think she will take away from it. Just my opinion.

    • nicko June 9, 2013

      no, she’ll bring life to the track, like she did with ‘Im Out’.

      • Queen Barb June 9, 2013


    • opd2 June 9, 2013

      YOOSONDALOOSE Why haters like you never like to see unity.

      • YOOSONDALOOSE June 10, 2013

        Its not that, I thought Ciara brought so much to Im Legit and I think Nicki really did a great job on Im Out, they both did well together on those songs, but this song is completely different in terms of genre and I just think that Ci did a good job on her own and that Nicki’s verse wont add anything to the song.

        But Im not going to deny that their previous songs together dont work well.

  6. Lovebird June 9, 2013


    Kelly FLOPBitch must be seething right now, hey Kelly, seeing that Dirty Flop Laundry is not charting, you might as well apply for a job as Blue’s baby sitter. I see your sucked off Simon Cowell to book a gig on Flop Factor (American Idol and The Voice are better).

    Cici is coming for wigs, the only RnB/Urban diva who’ll still be intact is Alicia Off-Keys, the rest are going to be shown the door. Slay Cici Slay.

  12. ciaralover June 9, 2013

    I loooooove ciara, but I hope she does not put out any more songs off the album… uhhh, let us buy it!!

  13. HOTSTUFF June 9, 2013

    a concentration of flopiness, too much for me to deal with BUT LIVIN UP is hot i always liked that song! i don’t know why shes not giving it the single treatment…

  14. RiRi Bad June 9, 2013

    11 songs for an album that was supposed to be out last year you coulda atleast gave the girls 15 songs just for waiting so long.

  15. rihanna is BIGGER THN BEYONCE EVER WAS June 9, 2013

    OK. If Ciara does flop. What do u think will happen? Let’s have honest answers plase and keep it cute.

    • Queen Brit Brit June 9, 2013

      Nothing because even if she does flop by typical standards she’ll slay every other urban female act.

  16. Markell June 9, 2013

    that’s what’s up. seeing how Nicki LAAAAAID “I’m Out” hopefully she’ll do the same on this one…

  17. HOTSTUFF June 9, 2013

    livin’ up was written by Wynter Gordon. Does that make Ciara a puppet Sam ? bias ass fool.

    • Kitty June 9, 2013

      And who is getting credit for all the songs R**** did voice over work on? It damn sure ain’t Riherps.

    • LeviLovesCiara June 9, 2013

      Unlike Rihanna, Ciara co-writes most of her songs including Livin It Up.

      • Likica June 10, 2013

        So does Rihanna, check Rated R, Unapologetic credits. She co-wrote some songs on other albums as well.

  18. RIHKING June 9, 2013

    Will flop no doubt.

  19. I Swear to tell the honest truth! * Places hand on a stack of 4CLOSURE CDS* June 9, 2013

    WHen Flops unite!

  20. RDK June 9, 2013

    i,ll def be supporting,ill be buying her album.

  21. BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare June 9, 2013

    I LOVE that song! Sorry, this song does not need Nicki.

  22. NΛVI June 9, 2013

    lol is it me or they doing a watch the throne version..cause Nicki is practically featured on half of the album plus almost all the songs have already been the time the album is realease..there’s only like 2 songs left to hear. this era..scratch that..this is not an era..more like an attempt. IS A MESS! and why is ciara featuring herself on her own album *scratches head* this boggles my mind, idgi.

  23. EveRyder June 9, 2013

    Oh hellllll no ciara. Why u getting dis wack fake b**** to mess up a good ass song like livin it up. Why r the hell y’all ciara stans and haters mad about her releasing all of these songs from her album tho. Don’t act like this album is not gonna get leaked like all the rest of them. If u a real fan u will continue to buy and if u not going to buy stfu and have a good day. I’m rooting for u Cici.

    • k June 9, 2013

      f-ckoff b**** hatin b****,nicki and Cici go well together,you need to acept that.

  24. Queen Brit Brit June 9, 2013

    Ugh why? Living It Up is hot by itself, Nicki is not needed or wanted. There’s no need for another collab with her on the album. Ciara is doing nothing to prove that she doesn’t need features to get hits. Besides, we all want Overdose as the next single after Im Out.

    • _} June 9, 2013

      QUEEN BRIT BRIT Nicki not wanted are needed you say,i didn’t know cici fans was that ok,i might keep my 2 dollars and 13 dollars in my pocket then if the disrespect towards nicki keeps up,because i don’t see why i most support a artist whos fans is dissing nicki for no reason f-ck that,there is going to be two version of the song so i don’t see the prob.Alicia had tree version of girls on fire and one of them had nicki on it,and she did very well i liked all tree version was good so i don’t see the prob.

    • HeadBarbInTheCharge June 9, 2013

      Ciara’s flop ass should be grateful that nicki even worked with her bum!!!!

      • _} June 10, 2013

        HEADBARBINTHECHARGE i have nothing gains Cici because in my opinion she and Nicki works very well together,but the C squad is getting c-cky and disrespectful toward Nicki,i don’t know were all this is coming from and i don’t like it…it.s like they don’t love to see unity they rather drama and other f-ckry..on the other hand i hope this don’t cost probs between Nicki and Cici because of some over zelous stans who feels hatin is the way to go,because i really don’t like that not needed not wanted talk,and i know others feel the same way i do.

  25. HeadBarbInTheCharge June 9, 2013

    The Csquad wants to shade the queen now? Nickis verse made I’m Out which would have been a lackluster song HOT!!! Straight bars were spit b****** and she will do the same for the other flop s***. Yall h*** are disrespectful

  26. eric June 9, 2013

    Out of everything I’ve heard so far from this project, “Livin It Up” is the most different and most interesting direction for Ciara.
