Ciara Keeping New Album Under Wraps

Ciara and Tricky Stewart

If you’re wondering why you haven’t heard much about Ciara’s new album, that’s because she doesn’t want you to. Tricky Stewart says the project is strictly confidential for now.

While Tricky spilled details exclusively to Rap-Up.com about the disc last year, Ciara is keeping a tight lid on revealing too much information. Her last album Fantasy Ride suffered from numerous leaks prior to its release and she wants to make sure everything is in place before making an official announcement.

“Her album is a launch that’s got to be kept secret right now,” the super-producer, hot off his Song of the Year Grammy win for Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It),” told Rap-Up.com at his pre-Grammy party last week.

However, he did reiterate that he is executive producing her fourth effort with The-Dream and fans should be excited for what’s in store. “I did the whole album; it’s amazing. If you like Tricky and Dream, you’ll definitely like this.”

    I think this will be ciaras best album, working with one producer is always the best thing cause u will bring out that sound that people will remember and love and will want again. You cant go wrong when tricky and the dream producing your whole album u are bound to have hits on there. Looking very foward to this!

    I’m glad she is having it kept under wraps but I really hope that this album is more of a feel of her than tricky and the dream because things like “I did the whole album; it’s amazing. If you like Tricky and Dream, you’ll definitely like this.” Scares me because is this a Trick/Dream album or a Ciara album?….We can wait to see but part of the success of Goodies and Evolution was due to us getting a feel of Ciara and who she is every songs she put work in whether in production or writing hope she does the same with this one!

  13. Aocollgeboi

    Yes that will be good if their isn’t no leaks caused fantasy ride was leaked a year before it came out

    [Reply]

    drtash Reply:

    @Aocollgeboi, EXACTLY..that’s why her last record flopped….because it leaked A YEAR before it was released. I personally loved Fantasy ride esp. Kiss my swag and WORK.but that leakage ruined album sales permanently. Hope this time management do a better job of protecting her music.

  15. Yes yes

    I don’t want a tricky/dream album either. I want a regular Ciara album with no slutastic lyrics. that sex sells stuff doesn’t work for her. I hope she isn’t on that hoe stuff because that is mostly what dream does.

    idk.. because I didn’t even like that they did most of MAriah’s album.. these people don’t understnd that Dream/Tricky gets so old..

    I liked ciara’s stuff with Danja more on “Fantasy Ride”.. stop letting ONE PERSON DO YOUR WHOLE ALBUM PEOPLE.

THIS IS HER ALBUM NOT THERES!! & YESS CIARA NEEDS HER LUV & DANCE MUSIC IN THERE BECAUSE SHES NOT ALWAYS ABOUT THE SEX SEX SEX! WE NEED A MIX!!….& UMMM TO THE DUMBASS WHO SAID LOVE SEX MAGIC WAS NOT A HIT!! THAT’S THE BIGGEST HIT OF CIARAS CAREER!! IT DID BETTER AROUND THE WORLD!! & STILL MANAGED TO BE TOP TEN IN THE U.S!! SOO PLEASE WITH THAT! DO UR HOMEWORK BEFORE U COMMENT!!…I’M GLAD SHES KEEPING THIS UNDER HUSH!

  28. ITSME!

    EVERYONE CALM DOWN TRICKY AND THE DREAM ARE BOTH VERY VERSITILE….THE ONLY REASON WHY ALL OF THE DREAM SONGS SOUND THE SAME IS BECAUSE HE’S NOT A “STRONG” SINGER AND HER RELIES ON CATCHY LYRICS AND CONSISTENCY WITH HIS BEATS…THATS HIS STYLE WHEN RECORDING 4 HIMSELF…BUT CIARA CAN SANG AND DANCE SHE HAS A DIFF STYLE…LET’S NOT 4GET HE DID SINGLE LADIES…..

    I personally cant wait for ciara to come back this year! After hearing her on luda’s remix and more then convinced she’s ready to take the lead.

    She’s def.one of the only solo african american female artist that can hold her own. I Love her ambition!

  35. 10 is ciaras

    That’s one thing, she is so determined, even after all shes been through. Most people wouldn’t do that. She inspires me whenever i have troubles. I love u C. Now, shes about to shut these other chicks down. Sorry, but do you think Beyonce would grind like ciara if this stuff happened to her, no. She took abrake after video phone failed. And ciara kept it, she aint fall off the earth lik Brooke Valentine or others that came out in 04. New decade, new promises. Shes about to get her crown back ,and with her own swag in the process. Get it cici

    For All Ya’ll Talking How “Fantasy Ride” Flop, It Only Flopped For 2 Reasons: 1.Because “Never Ever” which featured Young Jeezy(He Didn’t Make Any Sense Of What The Song Was Talking About) Was The First Single, and A Smooth R&B/Hip-Hop Ballad, and We All Know It Should’ve Been A Crunk First Single Instead Of A Soft Ballad, But I Still Loved It. And Last 2.She Kept Chris Brown On The Album, After The Whole Rihanna Incident, and Took Rihanna Off The Album… When Her, and Rihanna’s “Tears Fall” or “Tears Will Fall” Song Could’ve Been Her Biggest Hit, But Naw She Wanted To Keep Chris Brown, You See How His Album Just Flopped, and Rihanna Album Just Went Platinum… I Hope She Have Lady GaGa, Missy Elliott, or Nicki Minaj On The Album, Now That Will Be Hott… Especially With Lady GaGa, The Hottest Album Ever!!!, I Definelty Can’t Wait.
