Sneak Peek: Ciara – ‘Sophomore’ (Video)

Published: Tuesday 2nd Jul 2013 by Rashad

Guess who turnt up on E! News tonight?

Yes, indeed, TGJ favorite Ciara already has her faithful #CSquad swooning over her latest Nicki Minaj-assisted video ‘I’m Out’, but despite being out only two days, Cici has prepared a series of follow-up visuals to turn the heat up on the buzz for her July 9th eponymous release.

Rumor has it, today’s ‘DUI’ teased video is just one of the five clips fans can expect to get a glimpse of in the coming days.  Up next?  ‘Sophomore’.  Get into it below:

Team EPIC is NOT playing behind the wheel of this promo machine.  With an artist of Ciara’s performance caliber, it is refreshing to see labels push an act whose definition of a live performance isn’t walking back and forth p-patting.

Roll on July 9th!

      Oh… Unbelievable…… My friend Kaly has just married to a handsome wealthy black man. They met through ~~~InterracìalFishès.Ćom~~A Serious interracial dating for black & white single seeking interracial relationships, friendships, dating ,love and more.. So, if you want to look for people with which you can date, you are at the right place.You can meet (lawyers,busy professionals, benefactors. models, celebrities, etc….)If you are single, perhaps you can have a try.xcvxc

    • Nivea July 3, 2013

  2. pat July 2, 2013

    Ci Ci and LA Reid are not playing… actually anxious to buy the album

    • #Hive July 2, 2013

      the album sounds like a bunch of r**** left overs tbh

      • FutureCIARA July 2, 2013

        Girl you wish,
        Ri could NEVAH!

        Why Stan for a b**** that gives 2 f**** about her followers, worships satan for fame and glory, and pats her tired dry puss on stage to see if its still working.


        Preorder on iTunes now!

      • Lovebird July 2, 2013


        No need to hate on Rihanna to elevate Ciara, Ciara is doing alright and so is Rihanna. No need to stoop to the low level of the Hive who hate on anyone who is a threat to their “King”.

      • SeeSeeCC July 3, 2013

        F****** lies. I listen to Rihanna’s music and this aint it. You tried it lol. Ciara’s music is more R&B/ghetto pop to be honest.

      • Ciara Snatched Heaxs Bald July 4, 2013

        And beyonce must sounds like cassie scraps

  3. @psychostoner_ July 2, 2013

    I bet rih wishes she stayed quiet on instagram coz ciara got some motivation and is slaying this s***, damn mmmm girl the visuals for this, choreo and style of I’m out vid not to mention that BET performance that made her relevant again, kudos ciara

  4. High July 2, 2013

    Should do “Read My Lips”. It’s a really nice song

    • Read My Lips!! NOW! July 2, 2013

      I SAID THAT!!! She really needs to release Super Turnt Up, Read My Lips & Overdose!!! Maybe Livin’ It Up..

      • Sean July 2, 2013

        Completely agree! Super Turnt Up, Read My Lips and Overdose. Best songs on the album. I do love Sophomore though.

  5. #Hive July 2, 2013

    Another video? bye gurl you trying way to hard.

    • LTM July 2, 2013

      How many videos did Beyonce do for the 4 era? Sit down hypocrite.

      • Lovebird July 2, 2013

        Honey, don’t stoop to his level, he’s just trolling.

      • Mark111 July 2, 2013

        Don’t forget about B-Day and I Am, lol.

    • RIRI SLAY July 2, 2013

    • wefoundlove2013 July 3, 2013


  6. mrmystyle July 2, 2013

    She’s on it this time around!!!

  7. ci slays me with her vids July 2, 2013

    Don’t fall for it navy or hive or csquad. Please!!!! And a lot of ppl may think that she shouldn’t be putting out so many vids but honesly they keep her interesting. I’m out has over 3million views just in one day!!! She was KINDA promoting over seas but now she doin it with the promo. Her album is on itunes top 10(main) just by pre-orders alone. Say what u want.. go cici love u

    • Ciara Snatched Heaxs Bald July 4, 2013

      Let them hate. They envy her because she has real raw talents and commends a stage. The fear anyone who has any slight chance of being better than beyawnsay or R**** that hate.

  8. Lovebird July 2, 2013

    Keep on pushing Cici, “Ciara” is currently #10 on iTunes based on pre-orders alone.

    Don’t give up, let the haters hate. Keep pushing, you deserve to come out on top this time around.

  9. Jay Jay July 2, 2013

    I just hope the promotion is consistent and her team can book her to the VMA’s and Ama’s etc. But in all serious I’m happy that epic and her team are being creative and they are pushing through for this record. Her album is #10 on iTunes main right which is huge since the album is not out until Next week.

    Proud of you ciara!!! And the record is amazing. All songs are great no fillers

  10. JARED (WHITE DUDE) July 2, 2013

    Oh Ciara…

    *Plays “Janet Jackson’s: Son Of A Gun, So Excited & All Nite” videos*

    Good luck however.

  11. Kisses down low July 2, 2013

    Another cheap video…. Oh

    • LTM July 2, 2013

      Because Kisses Down Low was such a high quality video.

    • RIRI SLAY July 2, 2013

      kisses down low was the cheapestt video in history, like the shop from 99cent store b**** byeee

  12. LTM July 2, 2013

    Im honestly impressed with how her team is handling this era. I thought she was doomed after Sorry, Got Me Good, and Sweat failed to launch but her team acted quick with Body Party. I hope this album sells well, its been her most organized and well executed era she’s had since The Evolution. Out of all of the songs to leak, Sophmore has been one of my favs so Im excited to see what she has cooked up for us.

  13. ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) July 2, 2013

    I’m buying this album, period. She’s going hard with this promo and I respect that! I could’ve done without the DUI song/video but she again is keeping her name in the headlines, which is what she needs this era good or bad. #WorkEthic

  14. CiCi__slay_slay July 2, 2013

    Ciara is more than talented she just was too Boring! She had “it” But not stratospheric Star power she will regain her popularity and welcomed back in to stardom by continuing to show her strengths but she will never become as “huge” as Bey or Rih, but it wont be from lack of trying!!!!!

  15. Navy Sailor July 2, 2013

    I’ve actually liked Sophomore since last summer 🙂

  16. BAM MA’AM July 2, 2013

    Is it just me. Or Ciara can’t sing for s***? He voice lacks range and tone

    • Lovebird July 2, 2013

      Doesn’t matter, she is a performer and visual artist, she slays the stage on and off it.

      There are many artists out today who are successful and yet cannot sing a note to save their life, the difference between them and her is Ciara actually has TALENT.

    • BAM MA’AM July 2, 2013

      Sophomore is a catchy tune tho.. that”ll do good on the urban formats.

  17. Slayty Perry (Killer Queen) July 2, 2013

    So Ciara finally realized that working was the key to success and not being a lazy ass socialite. Good for her. She’s been working hard to get people’s attention and now she’s got it. She had me checking after Sorry and I just might be sold.

  18. Monstarebel July 2, 2013

    Omg i love this song Ciara omg navy please support cici this era shes really trying we should all give this album a chance

  19. ci slays me with her vids July 2, 2013

    • Monstarebel July 2, 2013

    • heart July 3, 2013

      Baby baby baby…do u really think E! Is Gonna Push Her Album Sales Up!! THEY DO THAT WITH EVERY ARTIST!! & EVERY ARTIST GOES ON KIMMEL FOR A PRE ALBUM INTERVIEW!! Lmao…lets not make this FLOP seem Special honey….okay 🙂

  20. Lovebird July 2, 2013

    OMG “Ciara” has jumped to #9 on iTunes based on pre-orders alone. Thank you guys, keep on pre-ordering, it’s Cici’s time.

    Keep pushing Cici, keep on pushing.

  22. navy nick July 2, 2013

  23. Troll July 2, 2013

    She is giving me rated r era

    • ADMIT IT July 3, 2013

      Exactly, I thought i was the only one seeing this…She said F it lol ..Rih’s looks and visuals are working for her so i’ll just copy it

  24. the best dancer July 2, 2013

    They are doing a pretty good job. Their only problem is that she has been touring. She didnt even do qny summer festivals

    I wish her look tho

  25. ratedxxx(tic toc) July 2, 2013

    is she going to do a beyonce and release the majority of your songs as singles, so one of them could become a hit?

    we saw how that worked for beyonce on her last album…

    ciara I’m rooting for you..even though I like rihanna more than you, I actually believe that you have talent…

    is it a good idea to release all these songs as singles?

    well we will see how she does, when her album comes out

  26. holy hive July 2, 2013

    I can’t with all these bandwagon Ciara stans like @Monstarebel & @Lovebird you two have to be the fakest coons on here tbh after her album flops they’ll go back to diss this t*****… Smh where the real b******?

    And Ciara all this promo still wont get you pass 60k first week flop h**.

    • ADMIT IT July 3, 2013

      I agree

  27. holy hive July 2, 2013

    Bandwagon Navy stans for anyone before their album drops then when it flops they go back to dissing

  28. BAM BAM July 2, 2013

    In all honesty, her music career…it’s pretty much over now and this is coming from someone who loves Ciara. However, she can still have a career via modelling, television, and maybe movies.

  29. Cali July 2, 2013

    Go girl!

  30. Lovebird July 2, 2013

    Read my lips

  31. LA LA July 2, 2013

    Idk necessarily if this is a good marketing plan.
    It may just be videos that she’ll virally put out hence the low budget look of the two videos that she showed sneak peak of. But I think she needs to let I’m Out (Which In my opinion, is a sh*t song but good video) to get consumers to pay attention to that song and than release the other video afterwards, I say give it a month.

    WHo knows she probably is taking the Beyonce “B Day” route with making music video for every song on the album but she should push those afterwards the album drops.

  32. LOVE B DREAMER July 2, 2013

    Sadly,Yes this b****** music career is WACK AF . You just can’t flop 3 and expect a miracle….

  33. LOVE B DREAMER July 2, 2013

    Beyonce racks up her second No. 1 on The Billboard 200 with “B’Day,” bypassing her best one-week sum by more than 220,000 copies. The Columbia set moved a whopping 541,000 units in its first week, acc


    • mymie July 3, 2013

      b**** go talk about beyonce somewhere else!!!

      • haha July 3, 2013


  34. B****** ARE A MESS July 2, 2013

    I wish Ciara the best, and i will indeed buy the album..But i see her album doing around 82,000, and although that is an improvement from her last album it still not great! She should release Overdose, or living it up! I think those singles will be a big commercial success but she setting herself up so far smh…

  35. HoneychildPlease July 2, 2013

    I want CICI to win so bad!!!!!!! I will be purchasing my hard copy as soon as it comes out!! Please don’t bootleg the album people BUY it!!!

  36. Mark111 July 2, 2013

    CIARA!!!!! This girl is doing it! She’s taking notes from 50 Cent and Beyonce and dropping a vid for every song and I’m not even mad! I like Bey, Rih and Ci and the other fan base need to let Ciara have this moment. Rihanna and Beyonce are on tour, Rihanna had an album last November and might even have another one this November, Bey isn’t releasing anything anytime soon, so don’t hate and let Ciara have her shine. What I don’t understand is why can’t people like all three or everyone, I don’t limit myself to one artist or sound, if you do, not only are you missing out of great music, but being bitter. Competition is a great thing. Maybe that’s why Rihanna is so lazy at shows and Beyonce just put anything on an album cause there’s no competition. I remember in the 90’s when Whitney, Mariah, Toni, Brandy, Usher, Genuwine, Aaliyah, Monica, Janet and MJ were keeping each other on their toes and THAT’T why music was so good back then.

    • haha July 3, 2013

      B**** SHUT THE F*** UP

  37. TheHive July 3, 2013

    YESSSSS AGREED!!!! Chile It was soo many people dissing her but now they wanna jump on her bangwagon.. Ciara is an OK artist, to me she still making the same sound everytime. And that B.E.T performance was not all that. It was ok not breathtaking and them vocals did NOT improve cause it sound like she inhaled helium!

  38. Brazilian Beyonce!!! July 3, 2013

    USA #beyhive please support Ciara!! I want her to do 100-200k first. Once the album is released here I’m buying it physically and I’m about to pre order it on itunes. This is her big comeback… Hive don’t hate on ciara she’s very talented and she’s a hardworker. She deserves this shine!!
    #CSquad make her debut no #1 US 200!!

  39. Brazilian Beyonce!!! July 3, 2013

    I’ve been loving everything she has released!
    Sorry,Got me Good,Body Party, I’m out! She’s dope

  40. Y.B. July 3, 2013

    Do any of you dummies read? These are not actual previews for official full length music videos. Instead of offering a standing album preview, they are short visuals to aid the album snippets.

    Reading is fundamental.

  41. ha July 3, 2013

    Ciara’s music is so wack. Seriously, she should’ve jus been a dancer

    • TruthSpeaker July 3, 2013

      your laughs are so wack. seriously, you should have just been a giggle.

  42. IDK July 3, 2013

    So happy for her. Cant wait until the 9th.

  43. Todd July 3, 2013


  44. wefoundlove2013 July 3, 2013


  45. TruthSpeaker July 3, 2013

    she’s on the Beyonka Promo special. You know, where they record the vids to all of the singles ahead of the album release and drop each vid to the fans to build up hype. F*** RiRi, Cici is coming for Beyonka with this album! I bet she’ll sit her ass down too. Can’t wait for Beyonka’s fall from the top! It will be epic! It will be bigger than Mimi & Brit Brit’s breakdowns! It will REDEFINE THE MUSIC BIZ!

  46. ,. July 3, 2013

    she doing her thing,i am def going to support when than cd is out.

  47. bland July 3, 2013

    Kelly Rowland needs to take notes that’s what you call come back

  48. KINGBEY July 3, 2013

    she Finally putting every thing on lock … she gonna have good sells with this album

  49. Truth tella July 3, 2013

    I never buy albums and I think I’m going to buy Ciara’s on iTUnes. I’m probably being influenced by illumanti mind control, but this chick Is f****** HUSTLING to promote her s***, and plus she seems sweet and kind and deserving of success.
