Quite a bit has changed since the release of Ciara’s last album. She got engaged to rapper Future, had a baby and broke off that engagement (not necessarily in that order). Now, the new mom is prepared to release a new album titled, Jackie, which she says is named after her mother.
“On this album, I think that it’s important for people to really feel me,” the 29-year-old told HipHollywood. “I titled that album after my mom because I can now see the world through her eyes.”
After the release of her first single, “I Bet,” which addresses her unfortunate split from Future, fans realized that she would be opening up a lot more on this album than she has on previous projects.
“I just feel so many different things now with life,” she continued. “As a woman, I feel a whole different confidence. I feel a need to express. I feel like us women want to express with each other. I talk to so many women and a lot of my friends about real things and I want to be able to share that through my music because I think that’s what the world wants.”
“The world needs music. The world needs, I think, realness…It’s important to me that I get to be true and express myself exactly how I want to as an artist.”
While she admits that her debut album has always been her favorite, the singer boldly proclaimed that Jackie will be her best work to date.
Are you looking forward to Cici’s upcoming release?
