Ciara Better Than ‘Ever’ on New Single

ciara_wrestler.jpg

Rihanna and Beyoncé may have owned 2008, but 2009 is all about Ciara. The R&B hottie gave you a taste of her new album with the T-Pain-produced “Go Girl,” but she’s saved the best for next year.

Rap-Up.com has exclusively learned that Ciara has chosen “Never Ever” featuring fellow ATLien Young Jeezy as the next single from her third LP Fantasy Ride. The track was co-produced by Polow Da Don (“Promise”) and Elvis “BlacElvis” Williams (Beyoncé’s “Ego”) and will be released to radio in early ’09, while the album will follow in spring.

Fantasy Ride is the follow-up to 2006′s Ciara: The Evolution, which debuted at No. 1 and spawned the hit singles “Promise,” “Like a Boy,” and “Can’t Leave ‘Em Alone” featuring 50 Cent.

    I\’M ROOTING FOR YOU!

  5. that bitch

    ^^^^^^^^^that shit is not funny u lame ass ho, u wack as fuck 4 that, pathetic coward

  6. TERRELL

    In the words of CiCi, “I am the original and you ain’t got that swagger I’m the sh sh shit”!

    Ciara I love u and will continue in 09 baby bring the hits again

  7. Otty88

    ^^^^First of all I\’m a dude and if I was not telling the truth you would not be mad at me!
    Come seriously ciara is only famous in the US. And that bothers me, because she has mass crossover appeal. She just needs to get out of her comfort zone. This is her thirth album, this is the album that should make her the worlwide superstar( A La Rihanna), she is able to become.

    Why do you think Kelly Rowland is right now recording here in europe?
    Because she too has the potential to be big star(athough she\’s already quite big here) and she realized it.

    Ciara is my girl and I see bigger things for her.
    I hope she sees that too!

  8. Otty88

    There’s only so much time that she wants to sell a million copies of her album in the status, that could be 6 million worlwide!

  9. cocoabean

    Goodies made number 1 in the UK dumbass…

    and everybody i know in my city has heard of CiCi and has copped both her albums so chill your bean…

  10. Clay

    Otto, the only reason Kelly Rowland is recording in Europe is because “Work” surpassed all expectations by becoming a hit single there. The song still flopped in the US!

  11. Beeyah

    Ciara > Kelly Rowland

  12. cocoabean

    and the only reason Work “worked” out in Europe and the UK was because of the Freemasons remix which has the dance/euro pop style that the European market is accustomed to…

    Otherwise Kelly would have flopped the same way she did in the US…

  13. Dominicano

    DO THE DAMN THING CIARA!!!!!!

  14. D

    SOME OF YOU PEOPLE ARE CRAZY evolution went platnum in 4 weeks so cut all the bull. all her albums have gone platnum. and she\’s won every award in the US musically related. hate on haters.

    thanks for the update rapup.

  15. Jazmine

  22. Bootz

    Ima say it like this Ciara is the truth…point blank, shes got style, swagg, she doesnt have to try very hard, shes gone multi platinum…Beyonce is cute…she added Fierce to Sasha so she can win over the gay crowd, but Ciara is crossing over hard with the house music dats gonna make her 3rd album…Tru Ciara fans wont have to say much, Go Girl is hot, but her goal was to show everybody her new look, this nu single, is to show everybody that she is back…plain and simple, she bout to take yall on a Fantasy Ride. And on a lighter note, some of the shyt yall heard are promos, u really think shes gonna just let yall hear her entire album now, so yall can judge it b4 it drops?. I know yall see shes smarter than that, shes so fuccin in da game, dat people have to make rumors about her, she aint have to take off ten pounds of clothes and make up a rumor to get fame, she earned the fame….watch her work.

  29. James

    I can\’t wait….but seriously hope thers no more push backs and for all the leaked tracks, she should release a EP on itunes if she was smart

  30. BO86

    While I like Ciara and am not biased against her, I think it is premature and incorrect to say that 2009 is Ciara’s year. I’ve heard her new released songs and the leaked songs along with ‘Go Girl’ featuring T-Pain, and they were sub-par at best. Her album has been pushed back to get her better songs, which i think is a great move because the competition is fierce for ’09. Beyonce is just getting started with her singles, and as we ALL know, we’ll be hearing them ’til the year 2020.haha Britney just released her second single a couple of weeks ago and has many more singles to release(“Kill the Lights” is NUTS Danja hopped on to produce that track). Christina is recording an album in’09, as is Rihanna. So ’09 can go to any one of them. Ciara may have a hit single in 2009, for her sake i hope so, but with her against those ladies, she might be big in the RnB/Hip-Hop charts, but won’t stand a chance against artists that appeal to everyone/all radio stations. Not to put her down, she’s had some good singles, but I’m just being realistic. People said the same thing about 2008 being Ashanti’s year…..we ALL know how that turned out. Is 2009 Ciara’s year? Absolutely not.

  31. Bourbon

    ^^^^How can you say it’s not her year when she hasn’t even released her single and worse still 2009 hasn’t even arrived.
    Premature hating?
    Just stop!

  32. Joseph

    09 is ABSOLUTELY ciara\’s year, dont be scared ya\’ll, she\’s gon kill em with her singles off fantasy ride – christina aguilera.. she\’s hot but dont really see her doin much, britney spears hype will die down by then, and when ciara explodes on the scene, rihanna\’s camp are goin to be second guessin themselves because ciara\’s got the voice, stage presence, and INCREDIBLE entertainin skills that some of these other chicks dont have. N how you gon\’ put ashanti on ciara\’s plane? ciara can do twice as much as her – FANTASY RIDE 09!

  33. BO86

    BOURBON,

    If you had fully read and understood my previous comment, then you would have known better than to call me out and say that I was \’hating\’. I JUST said that i liked some of her songs, but was weary about the success of her next album judging by the newest material that she, herself put out to be on this album. This is what is so annoying about you and some other people who are writing on this page: Not everybody who has a different opinion than you is a \’hater\’. I understand being a fan and sticking with an artist through thick and thin, BUT perfect music CAN NOT be put out all the time. She has some hits and she has some misses. She had a MISS with her songs w/Luda and T-Pain (Go Girl was better than high price), but you would be delusional to say that it was a knock out hit. Just because people don\’t believe that everything she utters turns to Platinum does not make me a hater, it makes me smart. I love Beyonce and Rihanna as well, but to say that I love everything that they put out would be a lie. Ciara gets no special treatment just because she is Ciara. If Beyonce put out \’Go Girl\’ as a single, i would call her out and say she could do better. Bottom line, I\’m calling it like I see it, and you dont like it. relax, take a deep breath, and enjoy your day. See? Now you made me school you on some things and now you look stupid….

    What did you learn…..

  34. On My Grind in 2009!

    it\’s funny how riri and bey never get a day off in the world hateration.

    I enjoy cici\’s music as much as i do rihanna\’s and beyonce\’s. However I refuse to agree with those who feel that 2009 is ciara\’s year!!!

    2009 belongs to whomever has the hottest song next year, no one knows who that will be. It might be ciara, bey, riri, or it could be someone else who hasn\’t even come out yet..

    I agree with BO86, it\’s way to early to be calling a year for a particular artist.. Lets discuss who\’s year was 2008!!!

    **Rockin\’ That Shit** -TheDream!

  35. Deontae

    who cares Ciara is the owner of 09 we let Beyonce have 08 in the final quarter and we let RiRi bring them hits (even though she isn\\\’t that talented)! Ciara will own 09 and Fantasy Ride will sell triple platinuum like Goodies and Evolution! She is just the best!

  36. dale23

    wow….can’t wait. we already know Ciara, Elvis Williams, and Polow made magic back in ’06 with “Promise”. And “Bang It Up” & “Get Up Remix” was the sh**! You can tell when producers put on for the artists that they show favoritism with and Polow clearly saves his best stuff for her!
