Since parting ways last year, former couple Future and Ciara have maintained a dignified silence as pertains to their break-up.
Instead, the once engaged pair – who have a son together – have tried to re-affix the focus on their respective new projects, ‘Jackie’ and ‘DS2.’
Currently on the promo trail for the latter, Future has used a new video diary, titled ‘Like I Never Left,’ to share his side of some of the conflict that led to the public parting.
His words below…
From 2.00 mark…
“I went to my fiancee at the time [Ciara] and I told her, ‘Man, let’s get back to working. Let’s get back to music.’ She was pregnant and she started working on the next album. Me and Mike [Will Made It] we finished the album before the album she just dropped, and she didn’t want us to be a part of it at first. I was like damn, we just came off a number one and you go straight to Dr. Luke and start working with him. You go right back to the pop lane after you get a little steam. We shouldn’t do that, we should just finish what we started and go back to that ‘Body Party’ lane… But she was like, ‘Nah, I want to record it this way.’ So me and Mike didn’t even get a chance to work on the last album [Jackie], even though we had a number 1. I thought that was a little weird. And we still in a relationship so it was like, she kind of threw me off.
At the same time, we were about to go and get married. She was like, we need to [choose] a date and go on and do it, and I’m like, ‘No. I’m not finna get married. I want to marry you but I can’t have no big wedding on E! News, I can’t have these media outlets cover my wedding… I’m not comfortable with where I’m at in my career, I’m not comfortable about compromising. Being the man that I am, I feel like my better judgment is to go back and record and make the music that I know the people want. I know they want the ratchet **** from me, I know they want me to say the most disrespectful **** it is because I came in like that. I gotta say some off the wall **** to get people’s attention. And I felt like I knew what I was doing. I said it, and then ****, I had to do it.”
