Read: Ciara Shares Details On New Album, Marriage, & More With #Legend Mag

Published: Tuesday 4th Oct 2016 by Rashad

As we reported here, Ciara is offering no shortage of slayage for the October 2016 edition of Hong Kong’s #Legend magazine.

Showing off a slew of stunning poses, the singer/songwriter donned Balmain, Versace, Givenchy, and other top named designers for the sizzling spread which also sees her dish on motherhood, marriage, and, of course, music.

Keen to know the ‘1, 2 Step’ singer’s latest steps toward releasing her 7th studio album?  Find out below:


ON HER NEW ALBUM: “Well, I’m making an album. That’s really exciting, it’s something I’m taking my time on. I want to make sure that I put myself in every part of it, all my creative thoughts, feelings, everything on this album. But I can’t say where I am in the process right now. I don’t want to mark a specific point but what’s important is that it will be something for the fans, whom I’m very grateful for. I’m not at a place where I’m ready to share the creative details because I want it to be special for my fans when I do share it. I want it to be exciting when it’s time for me to share it. I can’t wait for that day to come.”

ON CURRENT MUSICAL TASTE: “I’m into old-school tunes. I have been loving the Bee Gees. I’ve been loving Diana Ross. I love Bruno Mars, when he sings live, he’s amazing. I go between old school and new, really. It depends on the day. When I feel like an old soul, I love old school but I also do love Drake. Yeah, Bruno Mars and Drake are some of my favorite artists from this generation.”

ON HER WEDDING TO RUSSELL WILSON: “It was honestly so beautiful and I really felt like I was in a fairy tale. It was everything I hoped for. Everything I could have hoped for, dreamed of, happened on that day. It was memorable. We spent two days with all the people that we love, your family and your close friends. I’m definitely still floating, it’s only three months ago and it’s crazy how time goes by.”


ON MOTHERHOOD: “Motherhood, oh my gosh, it’s one of the best jobs in life. My family, my son and my husband, those are the things that keep me grounded and centred and there’s no better feeling than coming back and seeing him smile after a long day. You put him in a bath, you put him in bed, read a book, those moments are great to end the day and keeps life in perspective because all your child wants from you is love. They don’t care about a lot of the things we care about anyway. Being a mom is part of what motivates me in my every day life.”

ON IMG MODELS PARTNERSHIP: “I’ve been fortunate over the years; I’ve had really cool collaborations and been part of cool campaigns. I’ve been blessed to have friends that I’ve met in the fashion world. It’s been an inspiring adventure. The exciting thing about the partnership with IMG is that I can. The ultimate goal is to do more. As an entertainer, fashion and music go hand in hand. There’s no one better than IMG to do that. I want to pose more in fashion shoots and do more cool fashion partnerships.

ON HER ASPIRATIONS: “It’s always been my intention to have my own clothing line. That’s one of my goals. It’s all about timing and making sure I have everything set up, but I’ve definitely always had a goal to have my own line and to be successful with it.”

    Make sure you get a feature from the vocal bible BRANDY

  4. Jay Jay October 4, 2016

    I really hope her next album is more R&B / Urban with a couple pop cuts.

    I would love for Cici to launch her own clothing line, cosmetics, and fragrances.

    Where’s TGJ staff “renewed musical advice” for Ciara? You did one on Christiana and Usher for not being musically relevant. I hope she goes back to her old sound, “Oh, Promise, Ride”.

    I want CiCi to do an full out R&B album ! No pop tart songs. CiCi can really make a comeback if she goes back to her roots as long as she keeps it fresh

    I’m really excited for the new direction Ciara will bring! I think she can do whatever she wants. Some people expect her to do what’s current but Ciara is an artist that deserves to grow. I need diversity from this new album too because her last album “Jackie” showed a little of that. But she needs to be more creative and set trends. I want her to be comfortable with who she is as an artist.

    I think Epic and Reid were stifling her growth.. ever since parting with them she stays booke.I hope the rumours of her signing to Interscope are true.

  13. Paulo October 5, 2016

    flawless looks and YESSS @ that clothing line, way overdue! I hope the next album is less divided into Dance numbers and R&B numbers and a bit more cohesive. I would love if she tried doing new Disco like the names she’s mentioned.

  14. Chile Please!!! October 5, 2016

    No shade, but she needs to quit making music & just be a cute choreographer/model & call it a day….obviously music ain’t her “Shugg”!

  15. B&B October 5, 2016

    Ciara bring the hood back on this new cd, straight no chaser plz. Give me vocal growth and s*** sensuality plzzzzzzzz…. And videos on par with “dance like we’re making love” that was ur best video I have ever seen. Much love!
