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 2010s 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.
