Hot Shot: Ciara Unveils New Single Cover Artwork

Published: Tuesday 13th Jan 2015 by Rashad

We bet the C-squad collectively got all their lives when stageblazer Ciara took to Instagram tonight to unveil the cover art to her new single ‘I Bet.’  Due later this month, the single will kick off the singer’s 6th LP and follow her critically acclaimed 2013 self-titled set.

As we get excited for the next “Ci”-era, see your way down below to peep the cover art for her forthcoming single:


Set to list collaborations with Dr. Luke, Diane Warren, Polow Da Don, and Harmony Samuels, Ci recently spoke about the yet-titled, spring 2015-due project via her featured appearance in ‘L’Uomo Vogue.’

“It will be an authentic album, real. I talk openly and honestly about my emotions as a woman, mother, about my ambitions, but also my vulnerability, my happy moments and my sad moments.”

        Body Party >>>>>>>>>>>>>> I Bet

        I want CiCi to win, but that song is safe, bland and forgettable. With new albums coming from Rihanna, Brandy, Janet and Beyonce, this is the beSt she had to offer?

  2. BeyRihLiyah January 13, 2015

    she looks refreshed in the cover art (that’s all I got) #FLOP4 is coming 🙂 Billboard chart position prediction:128 on the bubbling under chart

    • FutureCIARA January 13, 2015


      • BeyRihLiyah January 13, 2015

        when Ciara can see a gold or platinum album 🙂 Aaliyah has a better chance at coming back alive than ci-nigggga having a gold or platinum album

      • FutureCIARA January 13, 2015

        Ashes to ashes, Dust to DUST…

      • BeyRihLiyah January 13, 2015

        YAWN she’s dead and still slays your fave remember that’s your fave’s fave 🙂

      • FutureCIARA January 13, 2015

        Girl boo, Aaliyah is stanning from the grave…… BYE

      • BeyRihLiyah January 13, 2015

        Ciara’s career is buried next to Aaliyah’s grave 🙂 2004-2007

      • FutureCIARA January 13, 2015

        Girl @ the self drag…..

      • BeyRihLiyah January 13, 2015

        the self drag is Ciara actually thinks he has a career / relevancy

      • FutureCIARA January 13, 2015

        But shes got you talking!! LMAO, Name all in yo mouf… Have a seat ho

      • BeyRihLiyah January 13, 2015

        can Ciara even afford a seat? we all know she got fired from the dollar general store

      • FutureCIARA January 13, 2015

        Hunny you are trying way to hard at your punch-lines… and your reads are flopping!

        Spend some more time under Mark111’s/LBs/Rosies nutsack and atleast try to learn from them….
        Atleast I respect their dragging most the time.. You just look bloody pathetic! And reaching far too high!

    • AJ January 14, 2015

      There’s only 25 positions on the bubbling under (max chat let position, 125)

  3. tasha January 13, 2015

    Yaaass!! I also heard through the grape vine that the second single off the Album is called “Full Moon” and will feature Chris Brown and production by Rodney Jerkins…. Hope it’s true but anyways, I’m soooo ready for Cici to slay!!! Hope missy is on the album too!

    • FutureCIARA January 13, 2015

      ……… HAWNY!!!!!!!!

  4. BeyRihLiyah January 13, 2015

    #R8 / home soundtrack will overshadow anything flopara releases this year #R8 is coming

  5. Nicki Is Queen January 13, 2015

    I can’t wait to hear what she has too offer..

    • BeyRihLiyah January 13, 2015

      the same flop garbage she’s been releasing

      • Nicki Is Queen January 13, 2015

        I liked her last album was good too bad she keeps flopping

    • BeyRihLiyah January 13, 2015

      @nickisqueen even onika couldn’t save flop-ara last era

    • LB January 13, 2015

      Did Nicki’s ghost writer help you type that?

  6. tits mcgee January 13, 2015

    If she had an album full of songs like the original ‘living it up’, I would be in. Ciara sounds best to me, in up-mid tempo songs.

    Hi energy songs and videos, would push her forward.

    She has done the slow r +b songs to death.

    I wanna hear straight pop music and I slow jam on the album.

    Time to showcase herself differently, if she wants the general pop, to dig her again.

  7. Luxxury January 13, 2015

    Nothing to see here folks!!! She will release 20 “buzz singles” until one catches on, then finally release her album in December which will sell 55k first week, 98k total and 125k WW.

    • Defjam January 13, 2015


  8. metzo January 13, 2015

    I’m ready for the Slayage!! Come thru Ci

    • FutureCIARA January 13, 2015

      STAN BABY!!


      • metzo January 13, 2015

        I miss y’all too!!! Fr Fr. Twitter is too much distraction for me these days. Needa slow down lol

      • FutureCIARA January 13, 2015

        I understand, Come back when your ready boo!

    • Nicki Is queen January 13, 2015

      When u coming back metzo!

      • metzo January 13, 2015

        Idk girl :/

  9. MISHKA January 13, 2015

    Come thru Ci-tch!

  10. Mark111 January 13, 2015

    “It will be an authentic album, real. I talk openly and honestly about my emotions as a woman, mother, about my ambitions, but also my vulnerability, my happy moments and my sad moments.”

    She said that about the last album. Her and Monica always say their projects will be personal and deep, yet we never hear it. I AM rooting for her, because Ciara is a rare talent that only comes around every 10 to 20 years (Janet & Aaliyah). But if this is a buzz single and if they’re going to trow 99 singles to see what stick, I’m over it. Ciara and her team (if she even have one) never plan an era out. R&B is hear and urban is in, so there’s no reason she shouldn’t have success this time around when other girls like Tinashe, Sevyn, Akio and those tv h*** are doing ok numbers.

    • BeyRihLiyah January 13, 2015

      the pop crowd don’t wont her and the r&b/ hip hop crowd don’t want her she should just get a job at her local library

    • FutureCIARA January 13, 2015

      Thank you for your respectable comment.

      • ORA January 13, 2015

        Aaliyah and Brandy >>> FLOPnica

    • Defjam January 13, 2015

      You are so jealous of Monica because she always slays Aaliyah

      • BeyRihLiyah January 13, 2015

        monica slaying what? not with them over certified albums

      • Defjam January 13, 2015

        In sales and vocal talent oooops

      • BeyRihLiyah January 14, 2015

        please monica sales where over shipped /over certified if she was outselling Aaliyah than why is her sales lower than both Aaliyah and brandy album sales both Aaliyah and brandy sold over 8 million in the u.s. while monica sold like 5 million shouldn’t her sales be up their with Aaliyah and brandy 🙂 and monica’s voice is annoying she screams and whines and she still don’t have any control over her voice 🙂

      • Brian310 January 15, 2015

        Well go and check Aaliyahs star spangled banner at age 16 and then go and look at Monica version at 35 and tell me who did it better

  11. Realest January 13, 2015

    I’m ready for some new Cici, she always makes good music even if the last couple albums haven’t performed up to standard. I was just listening to “read my lips” in the gym today.

    Side note: it’s the same pressed heauxs breaking their ankles to run into people’s post and hate/be negative. Shows a lot about what their life is NOT (successful).

    Bring it on Cici

  12. Mark111 January 13, 2015

    But I would crack da F up if Rihanna drops a single on the same day again. Remember Sorry and Diamonds dropped the same day. We all know who won that “battel”. #Clearly

    • BeyRihLiyah January 13, 2015


  13. Rosie January 13, 2015

    Who produced this (the single, not the 5 listed as album producers)? She needs to come back with something fresh and exciting like she did with Local Party last year.

    • Rosie January 13, 2015

      Correction, Local Party was released almost two years ago. Oops.

    • BeyRihLiyah January 13, 2015

      *correction: local clinic party

      • FutureCIARA January 13, 2015

        You are really bothered, Girl give your keyboard a rest…

    • FutureCIARA January 13, 2015

      Ms.Thing POPara is coming! Dont you worry yourself West Coast….

  14. FutureCIARA January 13, 2015

    The Navy swarmed in here to throw it, Yet their fave is busy THROWING her pusss, to anybody who will have it in Hollywood….
    (i.e Leonardo DiCaprio)

    • Mark111 January 13, 2015

      Ciara had more men then Rihanna and was left with a kid. Who’s the hooker?

      • FutureCIARA January 13, 2015

        Here we go with this delusion again……

    • BeyRihLiyah January 13, 2015

      but do Ciara even have a puss was she fuckinggggg future or was future fuckingggg her? 🙂 #R8 is coming

      • FutureCIARA January 13, 2015

        LMAO Pathetic….

        No time for trolls

      • Mark111 January 13, 2015

        oop! He is from Atlanta.

    • LB January 13, 2015

      And Ciara is the one who is a baby momma -> _/

  15. LB January 13, 2015

    I will admit, Ciara may be a FLOP but I enjoy her albums, “Ciara” is one of the albums I enjoyed listening to last year (overdose, read my lips, sophomore, DUI, Sorry, Body Party, Livin’ it up) and FLOP, s** and magic is still my jam so I’d be lying if I didn’t say I wasn’t looking forward to this.

    Having said that, I think it is time Ciara did something else outside music. She’s got some sort of fashion thing I see going for her, she might shine there tbh.

    It’s a shame considering how talented she is.

  16. Miss Kenya January 13, 2015

    Why y’all keep putting black women against eachother? Why not uplift and start supporting black artists. Y’all can’t see what they’re trying to do in mainstream media by white washing as much as possible in hip hop and r&b music but y’all rather tear black artists down talking about how their album sales will flop. ENOUGH

    • Mark111 January 13, 2015

      Shut up, the pop girls are put up against each other for decades. Britney vs XXtina, Katy vs Gags, Miley vs Wholeana, Nsync vs Wackstreet Boys and so on. I do agree we need to support, but there’s nothing wrong with competition.

  17. LB January 13, 2015

    Notice how quiet the barbs have been lately? I guess they need help from their ghost writers to throw that stale tired shade of theirs.

  18. #TeamTinashe Stan (What Is There To Lose?) January 13, 2015

    I’m not interested in Ciara anymore due to the lack of vocal improvements since her first album but I hope she does well this time around. She needs to reclaim her spot from the Migos and Rae Sremmurds. No need for hate.
    HASHTAG: #NoHate

    • BeyRihLiyah January 13, 2015

      no matter what Ciara will more than #17k Flopquarius still hasn’t sold 30k

        Ciara is the queen of the flops but she will do more than 17k first week and she will see 100k In overall sales even if it takes her a year to see 100k 🙂 tunafish stans cant say anything about flopping

  19. NENE January 13, 2015

    We all know she is on the top 5 list of flops in music.

  20. datreddone23 January 13, 2015

    Congrats Rih on Billboard naming We Found Love thee top song of this decade!

  21. #TeamTinashe Stan (What Is There To Lose?) January 13, 2015

    If Nicki Minaj and Future couldn’t save the 10 years veterans wasteland career as in CiWhorehouse. What makes you think a single…. by herself is going to redeem her? LMFAO!!
    Carry on. 😀

    • Jhenè Aiko Stan January 14, 2015

      How is a Tinashe stan shading Ciara?? Tinashe is riding in the lane that Ciara rode before her. Not to mention that even with a hit like 2 On and multiple feature songs, Aquarious’ sales to date cannot match Basic Instinct’s first week sales.

  22. TheElusiveLamb January 13, 2015

    I’m here for it Cici. I just really want Ciara to reach her prime in music. TBH Cici should have had the Aquarius album and Tinashe (newbie) should be the one doing I’m Out and etc. Ciara needs a The Velvet Rope era will beneficial promo. She is very pretty, can dance her ass OFF, and has good (not great) music. I think she can win if her team treats this era right. The single cover is definitely a step in the right direction.

    • BeyRihLiyah January 13, 2015

      but why did I have bliss on repeat yesterday the rainbow era>>>>>>>

      • TheElusiveLamb January 14, 2015

        Lol. I LOVE that song. I like the Rainbow era. It’s cute. She’s unbelievably GORGEOUS in that era, but not her best vocally or even artistically.

  23. Cierror January 13, 2015

    Lol this will be a repeat of her Ciara album, her fans will hype her up, she will flop, and her fans will disappear again. Where is FutureCiara person though? Lol

    • LB January 13, 2015


  24. Slay_Hive January 13, 2015

    Good for her. Can’t wait to hear what she has to offer this time around.

  25. #TeamTinashe Stan (What Is There To Lose?) January 13, 2015

    @Beyrihliyah is STILL lurking to troll comments to help TGJ’s site. Lmao. “Kentucky Fried Chicken” still hasn’t called you in for work?
    HASHTAG: #NoJobHavingAss 🙂
    From this point forward I’m ignoring you because you don’t excite me.

  26. LB January 13, 2015

    Anyway, I heard EPIC is upping Ciara’s budget this time around, expect to see her on tour in coffee houses and Chinese restaurants…can’t wait.

  27. Defjam January 13, 2015

    This will be yet another flop under her belt. Flop
    Album #4 is on the way. Cierror is played out

  28. Rosie January 13, 2015

    This post kinda blew up a little since I left.
    Off-topic since I know you generic pop stanning gays don’t care but has anyone else realized how s***** these music festival lineups are this year? First Coachella and now Bonnaroo. If that’s how it’s going to look at that new fest an hour away from me then mess.

    • Mark111 January 13, 2015

      They became mainstream now.

      • Rosie January 14, 2015

        IA. The North American fests are trying way too hard to appeal to typical high school wannabes who stan for trash like Bastille and Calvin Harris and are only there to look cool and do drugs, whereas neglecting the indie crowds that made them in the first place. The worst thing is these fests keep selling out faster than ever. Coachella only took 45 minutes this year.
        Governors Ball is the only decent American lineup so far this year. Some of the European fests will probably slay as usual, though.

  29. LB January 13, 2015

    Off topic though, Sam/David, I didn’t get an answer, is it true Cheryl Cole’s “Only Human” album hasn’t crossed the 30K mark months after release?

    • Mark111 January 13, 2015

      Oh lawd! Where is that stain? I haven’t seen it in a while.

      • LB January 13, 2015

        Probably drowning in stacks of unsold Only Human albums, I can’t at the pure FLOP that is that project

    • Rosie January 13, 2015

      Just checked my good friend UKMix, OH is at 52K as of last week.
      Charts week-by-week:
      Current midweeks: 150

      • LB January 14, 2015

        NOT #150 LMAO, only 52K….at this rate it won’t even go UK gold, wait, what is UK Silver, 60K right? LMAO

      • Rosie January 14, 2015

        #150 in January is like selling 500-1K a week, so she probably will be waiting until late February/March to scan silver.
        So her stan was lying all along. iT was saying it already scanned silver last month while trying to drag my fave for selling ~200K with none of the hits or constant/weekly X-Factor promo

      • LB January 14, 2015

        So wait, Rosie, are you telling me after 10 weeks of X factor, 2 #1s and endless promo, it is not even UK Silver months after release? LMAO, I cannot

      • Rosie January 14, 2015

        2 months and still not silver, no, will probably sell 65-70K max.
        Yet it thinks it has room to drag every time I comment.

      • CherylSoldierr January 14, 2015

        Hey b!tches I’m here. Its at 57k rosie. Get the receipts right. Silver by the end of the month. But why are you obsessing over cheryl hun? She still got 2 number one hits + 800k records sold this era. The kii is that’s more than drunk del rey in the us + UK.

      • CherylSoldierr January 14, 2015

        And fagbird, LIST the promo please. 3 tv performances since June, 2 radio interviews. You f*** stay trying it. Her album is promoted on X factor every week. I thought I told your a$$ that when you tried that drag 4 months ago. Shakira, usher, christina, jessie, jlo, ie all your faves had similar results. So why is cheryl different? Dumb f**.

      • Dem Lessers January 14, 2015

        Ooop, I was about to add my 2 pence but I see this is going to get messy.

      • CherylSoldierr January 14, 2015


      • Rosie January 14, 2015

        Wow, you would think with all those people buying her singles and 10 straight weeks of promo on the second most watched show in the entire UK, Chav’s album would’ve outsold Lana, the so-called “Tumblr artist” who had no promo sans Glastonbury and no hit singles. The self-drag. You make it so easy to scalp Chav.

  30. ORA January 13, 2015

    Hellz no nobodys gonna buy per usual. She may get a top 30 hit out of it doe

  31. Paulo January 14, 2015

    Like I was saying on the Harmony interview before you kookoos deleted it… *sighs* I’m interested to see if Harmony pushed her vocally like he usually does on his tracks. I’m interested, CiCi. You betta bring it

  32. Rosie January 14, 2015

    Also Zooey Deschanelegend is pregnant, death at more people caring about her future flawless and perfectly dressed child than her twin’s Super Bowl halftime.

  33. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) January 14, 2015

    No one can deny the fact that Ciara is just gorgeous! Yeah her albums might have done poorly in the past but she’s still got $$$, banging a*s body and a beautiful baby.

  34. Paulo January 14, 2015

    And I know there ain’t no stupid people coming for Monica of all people… especially not a Rita Ora stan. These kids are so used to stanning for lessors they got zero respect for a true vocalist smh

    • ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) January 14, 2015

      Hhm., it’s cute. I see this more as a promo single than an official one tho..

  35. Paulo January 14, 2015

    Oh wow. I’m all for her dragging Flopvaydius publicly but this song as a lead single… no. No no no.

  36. Keri Krew Kween January 14, 2015

    Ciara needs to push this single! Drop the video quick, serve it to radio, and do what she does best: perform.

  37. Jhenè Aiko Stan January 14, 2015

    I like this, it has mainstream appeal to it. Her vocals have improved too. This can be a hit if she pushes it properly. Her last era was a mess and had a rocky start. Hopefully this one will go better

  38. FutureCIARA January 14, 2015

    The single will exceed expectations!

  39. Dem Lessers January 14, 2015

    I like the promo pictures, except the single cover. Though it’s always nice to wake up to some out-dated R&B I hope this time she limits it to 1 buzz single that won’t even make the deluxe edition of the album. Release the Dr. Luke tune and stop playing like you played with Overdose and Living It Up.

  40. CherylSoldierr January 14, 2015

    Is west coast certified or something Bc idk why she’s mentioning my fave now. Did she finally realize lana is a FLOP after her fave finally admits to scrapping UV. And she called gaga a flop. I’m CRYING. And not loose bottoms usual obsessed trolling a$$ bringing up cheryl yet AGAIN though he imported and paid international shipping for her last album. The two flip flopping trolls, top commenters on thatgrapejuice. They’re winning. Kii

    • Rosie January 14, 2015

      Is clinging to F*** all you have left now? Don’t even call Lana a flop again when Chav can’t even go Silver during the f****** holiday season.
