    I was excited about this album but now I’m a little scared because those snippets does me no justice. I’ll still give this a chance tho, I’m gonna be pissed if I’m wasting my money Ci!

    • I support great music April 29, 2015

      Holyshit this album is giving me a life!!! I need #DLWML music video now!!! #Slayara #May4th

    • Julian April 29, 2015

      Wow, she’s really gone full pop with this album, huh? I’m on the fence, but I think it’s gonna be good. I loved the snippets she posted on Instagram and I love “I Bet” and “DLWML”. Go Cici!

  2. BeyRihLiyah April 29, 2015

    tracks 4,5,7,8,9,10 and 13 sound good or should I say promising the rest of the album sound like total GARBAGE

  3. JustABeyHive April 29, 2015

    I’m here for Ciara this era!! She really deserves to be successful! The album seems like a great album #buyingit Go CiCi

    • Tyler Makaveli April 29, 2015

      She needs to come hard this era. Its a must.

  4. Rozer (Natalie La Rose Stan) April 29, 2015

    Is it just me or does this release feel pre-mature? She’s dropping an album without fully releasing a second single. There hasn’t been alot of promo or hype going into this album either. It feels too soon. I feel like they could’ve done more with I Bet but the promo came late. I hope Jackie does well though.

    • Rihboy April 29, 2015

      She is promoting. She went to the White House with Russell last night, she dropped snippets all of last week, mini vids on her Instagram, bet gigs, and more. Now this her latest act is leaking the album. Soon the album will be on YouTube. As much hype this sight gave her this era, as well as her team; I was expecting some solid cuts. She has like two and a potential out of 16 songs. Basic instinct tease?

      • maurice April 29, 2015

        in promo, we’re talking about performing at mtv movie awards last month, STRONG press tour, not just two interviews, one being on breakfast club. I don’t know, I hope the album does well, but her label are not putting their efforts in promoting this the way they should.

        I live in London, and I’ve not seen one TV promo from Ciara.

  5. Rozer (Natalie La Rose Stan) April 29, 2015

    Dance Like Were Making Love is pure fire though! She needs a video asap!

    • Barb-wire April 29, 2015

      Your fave is weird looking, and that avi? Gurl it’s scary as hell.

  6. ronnoc April 29, 2015

    I might actually give Ciara my money for this album.. can’t believe I’m considering it but she has been impressing the fuxk out of me lately. I’m feeling it

  7. Rihboy April 29, 2015

    Omg. A Pop travesty. The only thing that designated with me as a potential was kiss and tell. Everything else sounds like a Nichole scherizgner/Jlo/ Janet rip off. This leak was strategied! She went to that dinner with Russell yesterday. Now she leaking? Someone’s preorder numbers must be unimpressive. I will purchase kiss and tell tho. It’s the only snippet that had me at hello.

    • Rihboy April 29, 2015

      *resignated *strAtergized

  8. #TeamTinashe Stan April 29, 2015

    Some of the songs sound very identical to some past songs from different artists.
    “Stuck On You” sounds like 112’s “Dance With Me” but I won’t give that much LIFE into that yet.
    “That’s How I’m Feelin” sounds like another Pop infused with “1, 2 Step”.
    “All Good” sounds like the year 2000 R&B Jams. I dig it! Single worthy.
    “One Woman Army” is obviously a leftover track and sounds like Chris Brown’s “Turn Up The Music”
    Still need to hear the full thang but I’ll just say I am not really impressed (for now) but I will give Ciara my first ever big compliment regarding the vocals on “Kiss & Tell” and “Only One”. It was interesting.

    • AdeleBey April 29, 2015

      omfg i swore i thought the 5th track sounded familiar. FLOP. album sounds trash not buying this shitt

  9. Chris cage April 29, 2015

    All my soldiers MARCH! #may4 #b****

  10. CherylSoldierr April 29, 2015

    Death at the same pressed individuals writing novels. One can’t get their fave on any chart WW or past 30k and the other is steam pressed from their faves flopping trash singles. Screaming. Slay Ci, the snippets sound good.

    • Rihboy April 29, 2015

      The only thing this album slays is your faves existence. Other than that these basic songs are quite comical and misleading. This album is worst than her last. So now she is classified as disco/funk. Something is funky alright. Flop! I just posted this post on Instagram to see what my fellow followers had to say. The few that purchased tickets to her show are recanting and are underwhelmed!! Lls. I love this moment.

      • CherylSoldierr April 29, 2015

        Girl I’m screaming. You’re so much of a fan that you copied and pasted that lame a$$ novel to multiple social media platforms. You’re steam pressed sis. Get your fave to release something of quality because she is literally the definition of trash right now. That’s the kii.

      • Rihboy April 29, 2015

        Multiple. No boo just Instagram to give my opinion on it. It’s terrible and you guys know it. Her only saving grace now is bad ass visuals. I’m not moved by any of it. Dated to mediocre. Lastly don’t worry about my fave. we are focused on the one in the spotlight promoting this mess.

  11. AJ April 29, 2015

    The second single should have been released two weeks ago. The Joe Jonas remix of I Bet is not required. That said, the album sounds good. It’s her most consistent album since her debut and its the best she’s ever sounded vocally. Sonically, it’s her best album since Fantasy Ride if not before then.

  12. Soldier Of Love. April 29, 2015

    I’ve heard “Jackie (BMF)” and the preview sounds nothing like that, the song is on YouTube and sounds so much better. 1. 2) These snippets aren’t really doing her any justice, honestly. Ultimately, I’m excited for this project. I agree, it’s kinda iffy, but I love and I’ve always supported Ciara, and something in her confidence tells me that she has tricks up her sleeve and I’m ready.

  13. sleazy April 29, 2015

    this album slays hahahaha haters yesssss ciara yesss claim dat crown yessss bish

  14. Tyler Makaveli April 29, 2015

    “Dance Like We’re Making Love” is the s***!!! She needs to release that track or “Give Me Love” as her 2nd single.

  15. Debs ???? April 29, 2015

    Love ciara but this isn’t the comeback album.Was hoping cici would come through this time but there’s only about 3 songs I’d have on repeat ????

  16. LB April 29, 2015

    Sounds decent but not good enough to make me crack the piggy bank, cannot wait to hear it on Spotify. Anyway good luck Ciara, I really want to see you have success this era.

  17. knock on norwood April 29, 2015

    Give me love
    Fly

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Different sound from her last album, but she’s got solid material on here. A grower for some, feels like a summer album. I can always count on my girl Ciara to come through with some bopping tunes!

    • Lake Erie April 29, 2015

      Yes, I agree. Definitely a different sound from her last album.

  18. Royalkev April 29, 2015

    Nice blend of Pop, R&B and Dance! I didn’t like the first 2 tracks and ‘Fly’, but I can get with Ci on the rest of this album. She slayed me with that song @4:32!

    • Royalkev April 29, 2015

      … Can’t get off that track! This BETTER BE single #3!!!!!

      • Royalkev April 29, 2015

        May 4th where at you at!

  19. Jay April 29, 2015

    Can we all agree that vocally she has improved SO much!!!? I’m really loving this album already. Granted, snippets never do any justice, but from what we do hear, this album could be a winner. There are definitely some great single worthy tracks going on (still bitter that Overdose never became a single). I’m really looking forward to this!!

    Not as much as I am “Pretty Girls” though.

    • !yea April 29, 2015

      Studio magic…. I need to hear her live.

  20. Chillin April 29, 2015

    Great work Cici! I was worried at the first track..i was like oh boy..not this hood sh*t again..but the album has some great tracks..Go head Cici!! And why are people saying she deserves success…She is already successfull

  21. RihYonce April 29, 2015

    I’m loving this album !! I’m just ready for a video for “Dance like we’re making love “

  22. Bey Advocate April 29, 2015

    Based off “I Bet” and the new lovely single “DLWML” I thought she was going to give us some nice R&B with a few ratchet tracks but it’s so POP….

  23. xedos April 29, 2015

    She will be lucky if she would more than the last album. I just don’t understand what this girl hears when she’s in the studio

  24. moe April 29, 2015

    guys im a huge fan of :

    1- JLO

    2- Rihanna

    3- recently after hearing this album , im a ciara Fan . I Bet is really great

  25. G.U.Y April 29, 2015

    this will flop worse than ciara. atleast her last album had a “hit” song

  26. TheElusiveLamb April 29, 2015

    I love the new direction of this album. I can’t wait to get my autographed copy!

  27. HELL NO April 29, 2015

    I will be buying this for sure. “Ciara” was all over the place in my opinion, but “Jackie” reminds me of the reason I liked her during her peak years. I liked every track that I heard.

  28. !yea April 29, 2015

    Sorry but she sounds like an artist who has missed the mark! She stillll sound like she is trying to find some kind of sound to identify with like a debut act. What is so personal about a generic dance album that should have come out years ago? We are moving away from edm now and I think she should have been a step ahead. Come out with something fresh and maybe throw in a couple edm. But she trys soooo damn hard to BITE Janet’s s** appeal but It does not come off s*** at all… She just saying words wihout really connecting. That bmf song sounds goofy….She just seems lost. I am wondering at this point how she stays signed, whats REALLY going on here? Because this sounds every bit of flop worthy.

  29. Mark111 April 29, 2015

    The I Bet remix with Joe sounds pretty good, maybe she should had released that vs the dance and TI versions.
    .
    well it is spring, so the dance sound fits, it just I feel like Dr. R*** gave her left over J lo, Kesha and Britney beats instead of really getting down and bringing something fresh.
    .
    I don’t think labels care for sales anymore, since 99% of artist flops now. But at least try to get a platinum single out of this.

    • Miss Jones April 29, 2015

      You were so right btw!! She went from R&B to 2011 pop when ratchet is in! like UUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGHHHHH!! Get it together!!

    • Uknowdakid April 29, 2015

      I agree labels aren’t focus on album sales like the use to they would rather get singles look at the majority of artist that released something in the last year albums sales didn’t match up with singles success

  30. Miss Jones April 29, 2015

    This album should have been released May 4, 2011. It sounds like a time capsule to me right now, but I’m still going to buy it because it’s Ciara. I support my girls, but my oh my I expected so much better from someone with SO much potential.

  31. naima April 29, 2015

    It s like a left over from JLO s Aka album.

  32. Dante April 29, 2015

    If she’s smart she will release Give Me Love as a single in June and let it be one of the huge pop summer anthems this year.

  33. WHO ME? WHO YOU, CHILE? HA HA HA! (QUEEN SLAYANNA) April 29, 2015

    Honey bun, “Dance Like We’re Making Love” is giving me Janet’s “Come On Get Up” teas! I’m purchasing this album. It’s already said and done! Ciara, the Hot 100 is ready for your next (and comeback) top 10 single. Go ahead and get baby Future a full-time babysitter because your career is gonna skyrocket again for sure.

  34. You wanna love it right better then my funky money May 1, 2015

    Nice track list song and I wish Ciara princess all the best in her career may 4 is coming pretty soon can’t wait for the album come out go cici
