PRESS RELEASE
It’s a testament to Ciara’s fearlessness. As anticipation for her new album continues to build, she’s changed its name. The album formerly known as "One Woman Army" is now "Ciara", which will be available for pre-order on iTunes April 16th and be released on July 9th.

“I started working on this record more than a year ago, and since then, I have found my creative clarity on the direction I wanted to go in”. It was almost a whole surge of fresh energy, and I pushed myself to be even more creative,” Ciara explains. “I’m more open to change. I’m learning so much of about myself, and I’ve become really comfortable and free. This album goes beyond my music. "This time it's about taking a new journey with me".

“In the past, I’ve masked my emotions,” she continues. “Now I’m embracing them. I’m running towards my fears and the things that would usually make me uncomfortable -- I’m in tune with what’s happening to me, and I’m not afraid of expressing myself.”

Ciara’s most recent single, “Body Party,” is a celebration of who Ciara’s become. She’s confident – and clearly, she’s having fun. “‘Body Party’ is about being sensual in any way you want to be, whether you’re kicking it with your friends, dancing and having a good time or getting personal with your boo,” Ciara says.

Ciara co-wrote “Body Party” with artist and songwriter, Future and produced by Mike WiLL Made-It. The song was an immediate success -- the media praised the track as “seductive,” “sultry” and a “slow jam banger,” and Ciara’s fans responded. On the day of release, the song went Top 5 on the R&B Itunes chart, before the song and video even hit radio airwaves.

Premiering on Vevo and BET’s 106 and Park on April 22nd, the eagerly awaited video for “Body Party” was directed by Director X (Jay Z, Usher, David Guetta) and shot in Atlanta, Ciara’s hometown. “It’s been so many years since I’ve done a video in Atlanta,” Ciara says. “That alone was refreshing, but went beyond that. We captured the spirit of the song and the feeling of having a body party. It’s the perfect combination of fun and sensuality.

NEW CIARA! Finalmente! :D :D :D

I could not ask for a better surprise after waking up from a zombie nightmare! I hope the album won't be filled with female empowerment songs though. That's my first thought. Finally CiCi! I've missed you a lot! :D

I'm very excited for this new era. Ci has always worked so hard and she deserves to be successful again. Really hoping this is the album that puts her back in the spotlight.

I also hope she'll gain some new fans and become more popular than she's been during the last 2 eras. But for me, Ciara has always been about great music. But in order to keep receiving that, I suppose she needs some more success this time around.

Me too. No Run The World (Girls) for me thanks! :oops: :lol: Or atleast she has to keep that to a minimum...

I'm not surprised though, as i predicted this title some weeks ago, and it was the title c-squard has expected for a few weeks.. :lol:

I'm worried she will go pretty pop this era too, because many people on cici-boards seems to want that. But hopefully she will stay true to her roots, and still manage to bring something fresh that doesn't allinate her Urban-fans :wink:

An interview with Ali Tamposi! She said that her, Livvi and Ciara were pretty much locked in a studio for 2 weeks and made loads of songs that'll make CiCi's album

After all the flopping she's still trending now and then, plus never seem to disappear completely. She's a star allright! I've always felt inspired by her determination and humble side - considering all she's been through it's inspiring to see her still optimistic and working hard.

I feel like CiCi has the ability to make a classic ground-breaking R&B record ala "Aaliyah" (2001). She let us down last time, after a very promising Fantasy Ride... 5th time lucky?
