Ciara invites you to go behind the velvet rope in the sensual video for “Body Party,” the first single off her self-titled album. In the X-directed clip, she goes over to a house party, where she meets Future. The Atlanta rapper can’t keep his eyes off her as she dances with her girls in a scene reminiscent of Janet Jackson’s “That’s the Way Love Goes.”
She heads outside and Future follows, introducing himself while daydreaming about their future together. In the dream sequence, CiCi performs a sexy striptease for her man by the fireplace.
He comes back to reality and tells her that she will soon be his (“They don’t call me the Future for no reason”). While she remains coy to his face, she is sprung. “He reads,” says CiCi when he walks away.
Nicki Minaj took to Twitter to praise the video. “BIIIIIIIITTTTTTCCCCCHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! U DID DOT!!!!!!!!” she tweeted. “@ciara im finna practice that handstand backflip shit fo my secret man! LMFAOOOOOOOO.”
The visuals were shot in Ciara’s hometown of Atlanta and include cameos from Ludacris, Trinidad James, and Jazze Pha.
