That Grape Juice’s Top 5: Underrated Ciara Music Videos

Published: Thursday 24th Jun 2021 by Sam

For as many seismic moments as Ciara has delivered over the course of her illustrious career, there have been a number that have flown under the radar.

We’re not here to wallow in the minutia of “why.” Instead, we’re celebrating the rare gems that continue to shine – even if they didn’t garner the appreciation they deserved at the point of release.

Join us below as we countdown That Grape Juice’s Top 5: Underrated Ciara Music Videos…

5. Sorry

Ciara is, of course, synonymous with dancing, but she’s also a skilled storyteller both lyrically and visually.

Case in point this slick Christopher Sims-directed video, which manages to fuse narrative, movement, and beauty all at once.


4. Gimme Dat

You know you’re in for a treat when you’re greeted by a backend 30 seconds into this fireball of energy.

With CiCi being a seasoned dancer, this choreo-driven video saw her wow with military-like precision and agility. She’s long listed Janet Jackson as one of her primary influences, which is apt because much of the movement in this clip is very evocative of ‘Rhythm Nation.’


3. I’m Out (ft. Nicki Minaj)

Skilled performers like Ciara are well equipped to deliver no matter how sparse or plentiful their backdrop. Still, there’s nothing quite like seeing showstoppers electrify on sets befitting of their talent.

This big-budget affair saw Mrs Wilson show up and show out – from the fierce choreography to the looks to the chemistry with Nicki. A gem.


2. Go Girl

Jumping from the table into a split? Ciara played approximately no games with this criminally underrated video. Re-watching this reminds that CiCi was making viral videos before viral videos were a thing.

We’d love to see her re-engage with this sound and futuristic aesthetic.


1. Dance Like We’re Making Love

It’s the everything for us.

All at once, this watches like a music video, a movie, and a commercial.

Directed by Dave Meyers, the clip evokes an air of opulence, sensuality, and mystery.

What’s more, while CiCi is renowned for street dance this skewed more technical – incorporating ballroom with her trademark flair. Some of the best elements are embedded in the intricacy of the movement.

This was evolution in motion and serves as one of her career-best videos.

    Gimme Dat will always be cringe to me. All the stepping and sound overlays really killed it for me. You barely hear the song because of all the stepping. The did way too much.

    Sorry video and song was slept on. Still so good.

  3. Pat June 24, 2021

    Most her videos r slept on

  4. BigVid June 24, 2021

    Go girl should have been a bigger hit! That video man

    • citygirl June 24, 2021

      soooo good omg. i literally remember the access granted!

    • Le le June 24, 2021

      Exactly. Go girl was that song

  5. 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) June 24, 2021

    Not just the music videos, all songs were flopped hard 💅🏿C error ain’t Beyoncé & Rihanna but she touched Janet’s dancing level 🤳🏿

    • MissyA June 24, 2021

      She might have flopped but im sure you make guys flop harder 🍆

    • Tori June 24, 2021

      You sound stupid! I like Ciara, but she comes nowhere close to Janet’s dance level. Janet serves intricate choreography. Ciara showed she couldn’t do it when she tributes Janet at the BET Awards with IF. Her arm movement on the breakdown bridge was horrible!!

      • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) June 25, 2021

        Not sure how u sound stupid, when its a message with no sound. You stupid ho-e

    Remember when she lost video of the year (like a boy) to Beyoncé’s Irreplaceable?…that’s when I knew the BET awards were full of sh*+ and up Beyoncé’s ass. They Never wanted her (or any female) to give any competition to Beyoncé for the black crowd, and that’s not Beys fault or at least I don’t think it is. Even Rihanna had to go pop first, and become an undeniable name before crossing over into the R&b lane. Ciara just got stuck fighting it seems…she put out work worthy of note (seriously u can’t tell me her Like a boy song and video didn’t influence Beyoncé’s If I were a boy) yet media kept trying to force her down on a Christina milian, Brooke Valentine here today gone tomorrow level. Sad.

    • Diabetes UNBOTHERED June 24, 2021

      If I were a boy and like a boy both being shot in Black & White was highly coincidental. They have nothing in common. And video of the year always went to the most impactful song/video. Ciaras downfall was realesing weak material thus eventually losing her audience. Bey is the better Entertainer & I personally think Normani might just be a stronger dancer too.

      • S H A D I S M June 24, 2021

        What’s entertaining about Beyoncé? No, really, what?

      • Tori June 24, 2021

        Girl if you don’t shut your hunpty dumpty no neck whale of an a s s up and get off Bey’s d I c k! She shouldn’t have won video of the year! She’s talented but extremely overrated. Her album sales don’t match the hype.

      Bam, I truly appreciate you for your comment, well said.

  7. Birdie June 24, 2021

    The hermaphrodite rumors really KILLED CiErrors career. She was never the same after that.

  8. citygirl June 24, 2021

    my birthday twin never misses.

  9. Clarks0o00ñ June 24, 2021

    Remember that viral twèrking video that gay boy made of I’m out.

    That dude had such a fat àss .
    I have never seen an àss move like that.

    Ciara even performed with him on stage.

    Damn, that was a long time. 😩

  10. Teyana Sailor June 24, 2021

    I just got done watching DANCING LIKE WE’RE MAKING LOVE

    Can we show our appreciation for EVAPORA- IZA AND CIARA

  11. Lmfao_Hoe June 24, 2021

    I’m still upset she paid Overdose dust and no video after Body Party like girl what were you and the team thinking?, I’m Out could’ve came out later on honestly as it merely was done because Nicki was still blazing her features at the time but Overdose had the potential to set s*** off from dance floors, clubs, and live performances. ‘

    Aslo unrelated but her song CRUSH is highly underrated too.

  12. missmeka1987 June 24, 2021

    I’m Out video is my favorite..

  13. Bravo! June 24, 2021

    I always felt like the video for go girl was a video for the BHive. Ciara wanted the massive to know she can dance in heels as well

  14. Le le June 24, 2021

    I was just thinking about ride fr ludicrous not too long ago. Such a good one. It definitely deserved more.

  15. True Tea June 25, 2021

  16. 4Real June 25, 2021
