New Video: Ciara – ‘Dose’

Published: Monday 22nd Oct 2018 by Sam

Ciara journeys back her hometown of Atlanta for the video for ‘Dose’ – the latest taste of her seventh studio album.

Boasting a pep rally theme, the dance-heavy clip sees CiCi take to the streets for a high-octane performance – backed by a troop of dancers.

Excited fans even get in on the action.

Check out the visual after the jump…

Not what we were expecting, but we’re liking how Mrs Wilson is keeping the masses on their toes.

She’s feeding folk with new music and visuals with such frequency, all the while operating on a less is more M-O. So much so that we’re left to anticipate her next move rather than predict it.

That said, we’re interested to see what she’s building to.

‘Level Up’ was a mega-moment and the material that’s followed has been fire too. That Grape Juice attended Ciara’s listening session in London and the music incoming also sounds hot as well. However, it’s yet to be confirmed whether an album or EP (or something else) the end-goal?

In any case, we’re enjoying the ride. What are…

Your thoughts?

    This was dope. I like that Ciara isn’t making the same music as everyone else. I’m tired of sleepy moody R&B.

  2. Jackx October 22, 2018

    Sad we didn’t get a the freak me video, that song is way better.

  3. Meme October 22, 2018

    Oh no mam. This song needs to go. I don’t understand why they didn’t push Freak more. I am not here for this dated sounding dark child mess

      I like this song a lot. The song is classic Ciara. Is this song current? No but i still like it though.

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️B October 22, 2018

        I remember back in the 2000’s when they said Ciara was a hermaphrodite.. fast forward to now and she’s one of the most gorgeous women in the biz! How dare they try and slander Cici by calling her a hermaphrodite when we have REAL live hermaphrodite bitçhès like TROLLMINE! ??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️??

      • Rasputia Lattimore is ANNOYED of trash demon FAKE JasMAN aka GAY TRASHmane BEGGING to Eat Her Box & Impersonating Her & talking to her EVERY DAMN DAY October 22, 2018

None of the men with sick d|cks want u no more cause u got A I Ds and they got H|V so they don’t want to speed up their viruses. Go away u vile demon. Just like sick men don’t want u sane and clean women like me don’t want to talk to ur ugly ass either.

    • MusicJunkiee October 22, 2018

      Very Outdated !! Meme Always Comes With The Accurate Comment lol Cici Has Had So Many Chances ! It’s Obvious She Doesn’t Have An Ear For Music At All . Everything She’s Been Releasing Would Be Popping In 06 . She Needs A Balad , A Deep Balad or Another Promise Something Melodic !

      • Bam October 22, 2018

        No she’s tried that a billion times over.

  4. pat October 22, 2018

    SOOOO ATLAnTA….luv it

  5. Jermany October 22, 2018

    This isn’t the official video, it’s the pop rally. She said on IG that the official video is getting released soon.

    • Rasputia Lattimore is ANNOYED of trash demon FAKE JasMAN aka GAY TRASHmane BEGGING to Eat Her Box & Impersonating Her & talking to her EVERY DAMN DAY October 22, 2018

      NOBODY said it was an official video but it certainly is a video! Are we supposed to pretend like this is not a music video?

      • Jay Jay October 22, 2018

        TGJ made it sound like it was the official video

  6. Section8DaGreat October 22, 2018

    She is so corny. So she performed in front of a crowd to show off? BYE!

  7. Aretha Franklin October 22, 2018

    Ciara, Ciara, ciara…. I’m sorry girl but everything about this was whack from the song, to the dancing. Real HBCU majorettes would hit those counts HARD. CiCi’s dancing isn’t as good as it used to be, or maybe she isn’t a strong dancer as I once thought… next single please.

    • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. October 22, 2018

      @Aretha.. – I like your comment. It was truthful, informative and funny all at the same time.

  8. DC October 22, 2018

    Third flop she’s over

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️B October 22, 2018

      They’ve been saying that for like 10 years now sis. Literally

      • KillMonger Was Right (Tyler) October 22, 2018

        That’s probably because she’s been flopping for 10 years….

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️B October 22, 2018

        People don’t get to flop for ten years, the music industry DOES NOT work like that. If she was TRULY a flop she would have been gone a loooooong time ago. She’s lucrative somewhere

      • Rasputia Lattimore is ANNOYED of trash demon FAKE JasMAN aka GAY TRASHmane BEGGING to Eat Her Box & Impersonating Her & talking to her EVERY DAMN DAY October 22, 2018

        Shut up TRASHmane. He is right and you are wrong. STOP arguing with commenters tranny and go back to the tranny street corner where u belong ho!

  9. Jhud productions October 22, 2018

    No no and no, look at artist like K Michelle, Fantasia, jazmine Sullivan, letoya, kelly Rowland, vivian green, keri hilson, Estelle, ciara, Jennifer Hudson, keyshia cole, monica, brandy who are all struggling as rb artist, we done let beyonce Rihanna. Nicki brainwash us so bad that we will accept any kind of music, from them and make it hot, but when the Lesser rb girls put out the same kind of content, we bash them, out of rih and Bey, fantasia is technically the next artist who can book a stage and almost sell out, I mean jill Scott, erykah, ledesi and k Michelle tours as well we have to start opening our minds up and really listen. and we must get these wack radio program directors who lost us listen to this garbage on the radio, I blame future migos, juice world, travis scott and many more for corrupting us, why you think it’s so much hatred and killing in our communities. We dont have that love on the radio anymore, all we see at these award shows winning and performing is beyonce Rihanna, nicki, mary j blige and now cardi, it was a time where it was a tie between artist at the Grammys and two people one a grammy, but they cover s h I t like that up so we dont know

    • Bam October 22, 2018

      Agree with most of this.

    • Justme October 22, 2018

      Well all the ones you named have been putting out trash.. sorry not sorry. They are missing something bey. And riri have and that is a ear for music.. knowing when something doesn’t sound dated. I’ll add Mya, Tamar, and janet Jackson in there too of the rnb girls who have an ear for music. The ones you named not so much.

      • Bam October 22, 2018

        Beyoncé’s music is VERY hit or miss yet people go crazy for it simply because of the person it’s coming from. And those people listed in the original post have put out fire singles only for them to be ignored. I don’t blame people who like migos, future, etc for the decline of female and male r&b but I do blame radio programmers who won’t even give legit R&b a chance anymore unless it’s got a trap sound or trap undertones.

    • Haterz Gon’ Hate October 22, 2018

      BRAVO – Someone taking SENSE. HOW are we bashing this woman when we have Future, Quavo and Migos etc flooding the airwaves with the same two beat mindless auto tune crap? Everyone is entitled to their taste but people who love music – R&B music – know the difference. These radio station programmers out here feeding us this crap day in day out and stragling R&B in favour of this drone Autotune mess. If you hate this song fine – but you’re part of the reason R&B ain’t getting support no more.

  10. Ricko October 22, 2018

    She did great. Made it so relatable and will get some attention. I’m glad she is ok with her lane and her success.

  11. RihSlayedBey October 22, 2018

    Another flop…. her music sucks….

  12. DanYiel Iman October 22, 2018

    I’m all in for Ciara she does what she does WELL!!??

    • Meme October 22, 2018

      Really? But yet you always on here talking about Rihanna who sings mountains around Ciara.

      • Bravo!! October 22, 2018


  13. Brian October 22, 2018

    I actually really like this visual. Its very different but keeps you interested all the way through and it feels very authentic!

    Well done!

  14. Aj October 22, 2018

    She waited too long for the video… there’s no buzz for the song and it hasn’t been picked up by radio

  15. Dior October 22, 2018

    Just Givin Some Pep Rally Vibes On Edgewood In ATL. We just gettin started. Official Video Coming Soon ?? #DOSE

    • Jermany October 22, 2018

      Exactly she clearly stated that! Not the official video she is building buzz!

  16. IG @mixedboy October 22, 2018

    I like Ciara but seems the timing is always off. Didn’t this song come out like weeks ago?

    • #TeamTinashe Stan October 22, 2018

      And a weeks is being “Off”?

  17. Slave4u October 22, 2018

    Get it CiCi , Queen

  18. #TeamTinashe Stan October 22, 2018

    Idk about this but I want black female singers to WIN! I’m tired of the industry just accepting two dominant black female artists under the JAY Z umbrella..

    Why dont her fans support her?
    She’s really good at what she does and should be big with Beyonce & Rihanna tbh. She’s a solid performer too. She has had some blame on that over the years for doing wack music but now she is picking up where she left off….. 2006 vibes!!

    • Nate October 22, 2018

      Well most her fans now are reaching 30 now. So lyrics like, “imma hit you with a dose” or “yummy in my tummy” is not going to work. I love Ciara on stage, but these songs are too high school.

      • Bam October 22, 2018

        Yet Riri can sing the word “work” six times before she gets to the next word and Beyoncé puts out sh*t like Apeshi+.
        People in their early 30s late 20s are supporting Migos and other dumb sh*+ so the hate for “yummy in your tummy” and “hit you with a dose” are hypocritical.
        Put simply it’s all on radio programmers if they started blasting Dose or Level up on rotation none stop people would be claiming they love the song and it’s so fresh. People are sheep and radio is still the number one way people consume music.

      • Rasputia Lattimore is ANNOYED of trash demon FAKE JasMAN aka GAY TRASHmane BEGGING to Eat Her Box & Impersonating Her & talking to her EVERY DAMN DAY October 22, 2018

        Bam the reason Ciara’s songs sound high school is not just the lyrics but the production. Dose and Level Up sound like songs from 10 to 12 years ago. She should have made those songs back then. Now what she needs is another ‘Promise’, ‘Ride’, and ‘Freak Me’. Those kind of songs would put her back on charts and on the radio. Ella Mai gets radio play. If Ciara wants radio play she needs radio friendly songs ie songs that work well mixing in with other songs on radio playlists. Dope is a great song but it is too urban for pop radio and too dated for black radio so that’s that. Same goes for Level Up, although the video for that song brought on viewers it was only going to sizzle a little and then vanish which is what happened. Freak Me was her best bet but she did not promote it.

    • Beygr8 October 22, 2018

      She barely has fans. The C-Squad is nearing extinction. People like the socialite Ciara, not the artist because she has no true artistry.

      • Chris17 October 22, 2018

        But level up went platinum and has over 100 million views sooooo

  19. eric October 22, 2018

    Ready for a different style and a big change in the choreography.

  20. ~The Arcade~ October 22, 2018

    -__________- ugh, looks like behind the scenes you’ll find on her youtube channel

    • Chris17 October 22, 2018

      That’s because it is lol

  21. g October 22, 2018

    Yall need to report with accuracy ! THIS IS NOT THE OFFICIAL VIDEO!!!!!! This is just a promo. She is doing music her way. Im glad she isnt doing the same narrow minded delivery you sheep are use to

    • Jermany October 22, 2018

    Ciara was right there front row and center watching Beyonce at Coachella. Ciara has convinced herself that she is being original. She has had a bad habit of trying to be like Rihanna (google Ciara short haircut and Rihanna stylist) and Beyonce. She has her own cool lane, but refuses to get in it. Now, here she is trying to go back to Atlanta and rally up all of the black kids with a HBCU marching band and the same crew neck top and blonde kinky wig? Wasn’t she wearing black hair in Level Up video? C’mon Ciara, this song sounds awful. Pop is not your lane. Yes the dancing is cute, but Darkchild and Ciara should be ashamed at trying to dig up a reject Destiny Child’s Loose my Breath unfinished beat from the early 2000s. Very underwhelming. 🙁

  23. Khyle October 22, 2018

    Very creative and unique it’s not just a visual she making a movement And having fun with it. I think Ci on to something. Make the world dance again!

  24. Not your man October 22, 2018


  25. Are you kidding me? October 23, 2018

    I like the HBCU Marching Band Homecoming vibe, but the choreography was wack.
