Ciara Brings Her ‘One Woman Army’ to ‘106 & Park’

Ciara

With her CSquad cheering in the audience, Ciara stopped by “106 & Park” to drop off her video for “Sorry” and chat about her upcoming album One Woman Army, due this winter. Although it was New York Fashion Week, the stylish singer had to skip out because she has been rehearsing for her next music video.

She spoke about showcasing a more vulnerable side on the follow-up to 2010’s Basic Instinct. “One Woman Army really represents me as a woman and where I am right now,” said CiCi. “It represents my necessity to be strong, it represents my strength, my journey of things that I’ve experienced along the way, personally and professionally. I’m very vulnerable on the record, but I felt it was necessary to do it. This is exactly where I am in my life, so I thought why not share my life through my music? There’s nothing better than that.”

Her longtime mentor L.A. Reid has been instrumental in her new sound. “This is very special because he’s always believed in me, he’s always understood who I was as an artist and musically he’s just such a genius,” said Ciara, who is now signed to Reid on Epic Records.

    @PopMaster, you say this On every site? Why you so obsessed tho? What you mean she has no growth? She went from goodies » to the evolution (much more mature sound and vocals improved) then she had fantasy ride “She had a blend of RnB pop even an Urban Opera single (high price)…. What do you mean No growth Goodies » Promise » Love sex magic » Ride » Sorry there is growth… While we on with rihanna Ciara music has much more artistry and substance!!! And she writes and Co produces her music No growth bitch your ass knows her new single is flawless now you don’t know how to get her down seat shall be given

    sorry but i STRONGLY DISAGREE…rihanna has songs like firebomb, p.s. (still not over you) wait your turn, and man down…those are just a few of her songs that show not only artistry but substance…ciara’s music is actually quite faint and boring actually…name one song that is actually a good example of “artistry”

    ciara has the worst fans. They claim how her stuff is so hott and refreshing but do not go out and support her. I was such a big fan of hers when she first came out but her music has sound the same and boring since then…all her dance records sound alike and all her slower jams sound alike. On “sorry”, her vocals were VERY VERY weak on the prechorus and although the song was different for her approach it still fell flat sound wise.

    im not a hater, im just sick of FAKE fans that can’t keep it real about their artist

    Despite wtf y’all yellin Ciara has shown soo much growth! This song is a hit! This is real R&B! Yall just hating cause she actually stuck to something more of her style, she’s stayin true to her self, nd delivering what she knows her real fans want. That R&B side that she’s amazing with
    yall were expectin pop, nd got a good ass r&b hit
    she released this song at a perfect time. Nd this song sounds like promise a lil bit, but the topic is wayyy different. GREAT JOB CIARA, IM A FAN ND I LOVE YOUR MUSIC, ND WILL CONTINUE TO SUPPORT U! I’LL RIDE WITH #CSQUAD! Rhianna nd Beyonce have choreographers, Ciara is her own choreographer! Haha don’t be hatin cause Ciara raw with er shit.

    This is it!She’s back!To the people who’s saying all her stuff sounds the same and theirs no growth,nothing on Basic Instinct or Fantasy Ride sounds like this.Fantasy Ride was so different and I liked it but clearly there has been growth.For those talking about artistry an substance lets listen to “Found Myself”,”The Title”,”So Hard”,”My Love” and those are just a couple to name a few…Which she all wrote or co wrote so substance and artistry wise Ciara is the same level as Rihanna if we were just talking the music.

    Just to get this out stop calling her a flop. Basic Instinct was her only flop album which her true fans still got.
