Video: Ciara – ‘Basic Instinct (U Got Me)’

Ciara

Ciara is back in the Trap and reminding her detractors that she’s still the “Same Old Chic” in the viral video for “Basic Instinct (U Got Me).” The street anthem is a formal introduction to her fourth album Basic Instinct.

CiCi admits to going Hollywood for a minute, but is coming back to stake her claim. “I got a lil’ too prissy/ I didn’t expect ya’ll bitches to try to get me/ U got me,” she raps in the expletive-filled clip featuring The-Dream.

She will unveil a glossier image when the video for her first single “Ride” premieres Wednesday.

    This is fly.. but for some reason she’ll never be on the “international superstar” level. Her vocal range is limited and her content is played out. She can dance though. But not sing and dance at the same time.. many can’t do that, actually.

Ciara is not beating round the bush, straight to the point”. i am sold on Ciaras new album. Shes commin so hard now.

    [Reply]

  28. Creat1ve

    It’s nice to see the grimy Ciara we all love and enjoy! She really went down and dirty and didn’t beat around the bush with this. Of course the song isn’t the hottest thing on the planet, but it’s a promo release, to get everyone amped up, and for me this is one hell of a promo!

    [Reply]

  29. U GOT ME!!!

    WHAT??? CI CI. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Dont hurt em too hard now damnn. She called out keri’s ass. When asked u already kno she aint gonna deny it cause she keeps it 100. Keri u thought u were gonna get away with a slide. think again smh.

  46. elchica

    Th rapping was cool but i don’t like how the edited her voice on the rap parts and the raps were to long…the singing should have been longer cuz she killed that! But I like the song, love the video this is going to have ppl talking and running they mouths lol

    GO HEAD CIARA! I don’t think it’s about Keri or one person in particular though…besides 50 cent lol

    [Reply]

  47. Babygirl

    SHE’S BACK!

    [Reply]

  48. elchica

    It seems to just be a song about everyone dragging her name through the dirt and she is still standing and coming back stronger than ever going back to her basic instincts!

    The dancing was on point seriously what female singer/entertainer can handle her? She gives professional dancers a run for their money! She should have just done one scene for the entire video of her dancing lol

    WOW!!! Im feelin the adrenaline with this song! AHA

    Ciara is coming crazy, you see the intensity?

    Ride, Speechless, and this promo song are incredible tracks. Im glad she’s staying true to herself and going back to that hard/crunk/sexy ciara the world fell in love with. Fantasy Ride was awesome but I fell in love with the girl that stood out from all the other pop divas. Ciara’s always had her own lane that no other girl could touch, glad she’s found it again!

    [Reply]

  63. Kyle

    Lol this is interesting. I really respect her direction with this. You can tell she’s definitely trying to get across to her fans. I’m not really into it but CiCi is going hard and I love her style. Can’t wait for the album!!!

  65. CRAZY!!!

    @AnothrDream i know exactly what u mean. This song is very intense. The beat alone is an adrenaline rush. If ciara has songs on her basic instinct album that have beats like this im most definately buying the album.

    [Reply]

  66. KNUCK

    IT’S NOT A DISS TRACK ENTIRELY!! IT’S JUST A SONG TO REFLECT ON HER PAST ERA – MUSIC, HOS DISSIN, WANNABES COMIN FOR HER LANE, 50 CENT!!!!! Y’ALL TOO BASIC!!! IT’S HOTT!!!

    AND R&B CHICKS DON’T EVEN DO DISS RECORDS WHERE THEY JUST GET IN THE STUDIO AND RAP OVER SOME OLD ASS BEAT!! TIMING IS EVERYTHING. THIS WOULDN’T HAVE FIT IN WITH HER IMAGE LAST ERA DUMBASSES

    [Reply]

  67. LOVER BEE

    Ciara was a fierce b¥t€h in that video! I love her & I’m eagerly anticipating her newest CD! She is reviving r&b cuz everyone found a career in pop music, but Ciara is as everybody is saying BACK!!

    [Reply]

  68. BEAST

    Yall need to hear the original version of this song. Ciara went in on Keri. She toned it down for this version but the original goes so much harder. Major props to Tricky Stewart for producing such a MONSTER cause producers gonna need to step there game up after hearing this.

    The more I watch it the more I like it. The way the video is directed is awesome, definitely adds a gritty tone to it. I love the end of the song too where she does more singing. I can’t wait until she announces a release date for “Basic Instinct.” Hopefully it will come out in July. June is already packed with album releases.

    @Brandon – About the “international superstar” thing, I know that at least she’s known here in Japan and has made appearances on television, etc. and it’s not strange for me to see her videos playing on the outdoor big screen televisions that broadcast videos. Japan stay knowing what’s going on in the Western music scene. Same with Korea and the Philippines, etc. That’s international.

  100. tell'em

    This is just okay at best. I hope she comes harder because “Speechless” is the only noteable record I’ve heard from this album so far. The double digit fanbase she has on her is not going to make her relevant in the mass market, forget a blog or forum.
