Ciara Offers Update On 7th Studio Album

Published: Monday 18th Apr 2016 by Sam

For many, the number 7 signifies perfection; and for R&B siren Ciara it’s the route she’s she’s taking for her next studio album.

All eyes are on the stage blazer’s upcoming project for a number of reasons.

One of the main being that it’ll serve as her first offering after departing Epic Records earlier this year.

There’s no word yet on which label the project will arrive on, but CiCi is beginning to spill on the set. Albeit slowly.

See what we mean…

Speaking to ABC Radio while promoting her Billboard Music Awards hosting duties, the 30-year-old said of her new LP:

“I’m taking my time with it, I’m super, super excited about this project. You know, I really want to make sure that its truly my best yet, and also I want to take my time. I won’t say where I’m at with it but I’m super happy with how it’s going.”

When pushed for details pertaining to the sound of the songs she’s cooking up, newly engaged CiCi said:

 “Lots of good songs, that’s all I’m going to tell you,” she says. “I ain’t gonna tell you too much right now.”

As for when the album will arrive, she concluded:

“You know darling, you’ll have to wait and see”


While Ms. Harris didn’t offer much, it is warming to know the album is progressing well.

It goes without saying that the ‘Jackie’ album was polarizing and that its accompanying campaign was (all sorts of) brief.

Fingers crossed her next swing of the bat proves more fruitful.

From a media standpoint, she hasn’t had this much goodwill in the longest. She’ll need to capitalise on it briskly and swiftly.

      Bye Tyler!

    • A&R April 18, 2016

      Sometimes I read comments on here and can’t believe there are ppl in this world so damn funny. Pahahahaha this is wrong but so funny! Y’all must learn how to chill. Pahahaha

  5. that guy April 18, 2016

    Who keeps investing money in this girl? She is the female Chris brown. Little vocals and people tire of the dancers. Girl bye. Real singers in 2016 only.

    Not some dancer with water weak vocals with songs that mean nothing

    • Brokepeopletalkthemostshit April 19, 2016

      It never seems to amaze me….
      If there is anyone who can produce real music in 2016 I aint heard it yet but for sure she got a unique voice and nobody can dance like her. These days MF using Auto tunes and singing rapping all sounding alike. Everytime i turn on the radio im not hearing s*** diffrent so give her a chance maybe she will surprise us. Hopefully!

  6. BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 April 18, 2016

    She couldn’t say much about anything because she doesn’t have a label. So at this point she must be finding this album HERSELF in hopes that she will find a label once it’s complete. Or she will go independent! All shade aside I always commended Ciara for her inner fighter and never stopping music just because her sales are not commercially successful! Now only if Ashanti would stop being a Instagram thirst trap/model and get her ass back out there!

  7. #JACKIE April 18, 2016

    This album will SLAY! Ciara has a story to tell and y’all are soooo pressed over her label situation. Look at the first f***** ass b**** who commented.?

    • HailBeysus April 18, 2016


      • #JACKIE April 18, 2016

        F** I will seethe over you when Formation cracks the hot 100. So you might as well dig your grave now because that will never happen kii.

      • HailBeysus April 18, 2016

        Your seething sis ???

    • LmfaoHoe April 18, 2016

      Jackie I believe you on that, but she need to leave that pop bs alone and stay true to R&B such as the sound she had with Body Party not DLWML.

      • #JACKIE April 18, 2016

        Ciara is versatile and can do many styles. She shouldn’t just stick to R&B if she doesn’t want to.

    • Lea April 19, 2016

      Lmao, girl and what story is that?

  8. LmfaoHoe April 18, 2016

    I love Cici, God knows I do but idk. She keeps disappointing me. She know damn well Overdose should’ve been a single after Body Party. She’s a force on the stage but never tour like arenas and s***. For someone who highly looks up to MJ, Janet, and Aaliyah I would think she be slaying beside Bey and Riri on the charts and worldwide. I need her to be apart of the visual field and crank up some real HITS that’ll be consider classic and have everyone on their feet.

  9. BOOBIE April 18, 2016

    7th album? No shade her music cute or whatever but how does she keep getting album releases? Her albums can’t even go copper. But slay girl slay.

  10. Molly April 18, 2016

    Good luck Queen

  11. smh April 18, 2016

    Lmao…why don’t she just make one tape of an interview and play it for all interviews. She says the same thing for every album she puts out. “this will be my best album”. she says it for every album and they don’t sell. In order for an album to do will she has to have…….FANS!!!!

    Don’t we go through this same rabbit hole everytime time, yet she flops every time. He Squad will swear up and down that this is it, but they won’t buy. What sad is that she pissed off the guy that gave her the only hit in how many years?

    • iamDawnCe April 19, 2016

      So which guy was this, because “I Bet” which was released LAST year (2015) was her 1st PLATINUM hit in like the past 6 years or so…

  21. truthtea April 18, 2016

    For those of you neurotic Beyhive, Beyonce’s streak won’t last for long! She’ll be 40 in a few years and the same that happened to J.Lo, Janet, Mariah, and even Madonna when they hit 40, will happen to Bey.

    • Molly April 18, 2016

      The pests are worried about Ciara but has Formation charted yet? Lol

    • Danny Bey April 18, 2016

      Y’all said the same when she turned 30. What y’all are failing (or better, denying) to realize is that Beyoncé gets better and bigger the older she gets. Her relevancy and her impact has never been as high before as it is now and that’s why she’s so different from the rest, including the names you mentioned. Only Beyoncé can sell out tours in minutes with no new album. Only Beyoncé can sell out a fashion line in minutes based off of her name alone. Only Beyoncé can cause racial raucous across the nation based off of a song that wasn’t released for sale. Selling millions of records doesn’t solely make you an icon or legend. Your talent and impact does and that’s Beyoncé is Queen. When will y’all learn.

  22. Cinnamon Girl April 18, 2016

    That’s right, Cici. Keep it pushing. OAN, I’m not trying to be a Debbie Downer but in this interview she didn’t seem geeked about her upcoming wedding to Russell. I hope there’s not trouble in paradise. He’s still posting photos of her on his Instagram

    I really like Ciara, always have since ‘Promise’, but I’m just getting tired of her saying the same thing about each new project (“I’m making sure it’s my best yet”, “I’m super excited about this project”). It’s starting to feel like each album is lacking an identity, she describes every one the same way lately!

    I could be wrong, but I think Ciara’s approaching making music the wrong way now. She seems to be focusing on the performance end and not developing a sound that’s more melodic first. ‘Gimme Dat’, ‘Sweat’, ‘I’m Out’, even ‘I’m Legit’ (which was the best effort out of these string of songs) isn’t material that stick with people! I think Ciara should concentrate on the music being sweeter and more melodious (whether it’s uptempo or mid-tempo) and then marry this with a dance routine that compliments the music! Janet comes to mind with ‘I Get Lonely’ (the choreography is perfect for that song) and this is what I want for Cici! She seems to win more often when she slides into a catchy mid-tempo or sings about more personal things (‘Ride’, ‘Body Party’, ‘I Bet’). I really think it’s time to piece together a complete ALBUM that’s listenable and not mull over these hard singles that she believes will birth something explosive on stage. I I don’t mind the dance tracks, but Ciara is getting to militant with her sound and I think she strikes gold when she softens it up (in her case).

    • RihNavy April 18, 2016

      Back to her greeting dropped? Back to her completing her transition? Back to her barebacking Russell BROKE? Back to barely promoting and having children out of wedlock to stay relevant?

        Up out my replies bih. You’re obsessed.

    • RihNavy April 18, 2016

      Obsessed is my favorite Beyoncé movie? Yes, yes it is. I’m obsessed with relevance. Where is your fave’s movie or relevance? Find it and then address me.

  33. Danzou April 18, 2016

    Ok look yall…*deep sigh*
    I have defended Ciara tooth and nail for years now. I absolutely love her with all my soul. I do. But I’m tired of her letting me down because I want to see her win I really do. However she keeps selling herself short. You don’t see Beyoncé doing full throttle choreography because it isn’t her strength. Ciara needs to stop attempting to prove vocal ability and stick to what got her here.

  34. Danzou April 18, 2016

    My biggest problem with her is that she only makes videos for singles. She needs to be VISUAL. Vocal capabilities are not get strong suit. I love her but I’m being honest. Rihanna is not a vocalist neither however she STICKS TO HER STRENGTHS. The world fell in love with Ciara and she was worldwide top seller for two albums straight then she abandoned her craft. We need her to make super catchy music with great choreography because I KNOW that’s what she’s good for. I mean look at Taylor Swift or Katy Perry. They’re terrible singers. But they’re visually stunning artists with great writers and producers on their team.

  42. toeknee April 18, 2016

    You can tell she’s making up s h i t. She could not give a straight answer & its wasn’t a suspense thing, she just don’t have absolutely nothing cooked up. Talking abt taking her time bish find a label first.

  43. **** April 18, 2016

  44. cocobutta April 19, 2016

    All shade aside the woman is talented but she’s not pushing her full potential and that’s the frustration.

    Single choices must be better and songs where she can kill a routine full tilt.

    One woman Army is the one I really wanted as that was the one to break her back on her true level. Strong stage presence counts for a lot and we don’t get enough of hers at the highest level.

  45. King B April 19, 2016

    At least she has a Grammy. You know an award that not everyone can get.

  46. Coolness April 19, 2016

    I root for her but I’m sick of Ciara spewing the same thing evey time she’s about to release an album. It’s like clockwork now; Ciara announces album, Ciara says album will be her best yet only for it to have two or three standout tracks while the rest are filler, Ciara doesn’t promote album and when she does it’s often by way of the wrong singles or outlets and lastly, Ciara abandons album campaign before it can even properly take off.

  47. Bish Bye April 19, 2016

    RihNavy is responsible for the trolls accounts. He’s pretending to be close to the Hive to turn on them as revenge for being dragged into complete isolation. bookmark me.

  48. WordsWithSam April 19, 2016

    ‘Ciara’ was a great album with several bangers and slow burn jams on it. Her management and promotion has always been iffy. ‘Jackie’ was a step back, musically, for me. But she’s in a real rebuilding phase with this relationship (staged or not), hosting and TV gigs, ad campaigns and sponsorships. Maybe not top-tier stuff she’s attaching her name to, but she’s slowly rebuilding awareness.

    Hopefully she can deliver with this next album. 1 or 2 charting singles could do wonders and some videos with real choreography! ‘I Bet’ and ‘Dance Like Were Making Love’ we’re beautiful videos, but she’s at her best when she’s destroying the dance floor.

  49. iamDawnCe April 19, 2016

    I mean, do y’all really think she’s working on this album though? Cause I don’t. I’m Anxious for it, but I feel like she’s living life and getting inspired. If she is, she’s in the beginning stages. I’m not expecting this album anytime soon. But this timing plus the Essence festival is kinda perfect. They better have an efficient promo campaign in store!

  50. Tran uk anti bloper honioey love but it okay girl April 20, 2016

    Would like to see her work with Chris brown or Tinashe or Britney spears or Brandy
