Video: Ciara – ‘Livin’ It Up’ + ‘Read My Lips’ [Snippets]

Ciara

To celebrate her release day, Ciara premiered two more video snippets for the Nicki Minaj-assisted “Livin It Up” and “Read My Lips” off her self-titled album. Just last week, she debuted the visuals for “DUI” and “Sophomore.”

“I did video snippets of many of the songs on the album for my fans so they can have the best experience of my music possible,” said CiCi. “I wanted my fans to see the music for the first time while they are also hearing it.”

Watch the fashionable clips, directed by Hannah Lux Davis, below.

    @cici queen, thats a far ass reach son. first off ciara isnt versatile enough to be better than rihanna. plus rihanna sings circles around ciara and rihanna cant sing so that should tell u alot about ciara.

    Anyway i went 3 different stores b4 i finally got my hard copy of CIARA…that sh*t knocks so hard in the car. While its nothing great or groundbreaking by anyones standards…its a nice little efford.

She is an r&b artist some im not expecting numbers like bey or ri but I really hope she does good numbers! She deserves it. She’s so underated and hard working. I wish her nothing but the best. #Csquad get super turnt up and BUY BUY BUUUUUUY the album!!!!!

    There is no denying CiCi is way more talented then RiRi, but I love them both♥!

    And is Ciara releasing videos for all the songs on her album?

    @♪►Muzzac◄♪, vocally no, dancing maybe #stay

    @Yea, EXACTLY!

    Nobody is touching Ciara in the dancing category but Rihanna is way more powerful vocally.

    @Fluid, Both of them are not that good at singing. They are all amazing Entertainers theaux.

    @♪►Muzzac◄♪, How is ciara WAY more talented than rihanna? lets break it.

    Better singer? Rihanna
    Better dancer? Ciara
    Most versatile? rihanna
    best style? rihanna
    best looks? rihanna
    best music? rihanna
    most entertainer? ciara (although i disagree)

    The only thing ciara does well is dance and entertain. her music is below average, her voice is below average. so i dont get it.

    kate Reply:

    @meme, best looks and best style is far from music if you make good music who cares you are ugly or… anyway ciara is more talanted. Janet Jackson doesnt have powerful voice like ciara. and voice is not talant

    [Reply]

    Just Sayin' Reply:

    @kate, You sound dumb. While image shouldn’t be the most important part, it does play a role in the music industry. Why is a voice not talent if they are singers? Rihanna my be inconsistent with her live vocals but she can sing, while ciara is a backup dancer with a mic!

    kate Reply:

    @meme, and ciara can wrte her own songs. riri?

    [Reply]

    fabienne Reply:

    @meme, lol lol YOUR COMMENT IS SO RIDICULOUS. THE TRUTH IS:
    BETTER SINGER – CIARA, REASON IS CIARA SINGS BETTER THAN RIHANNA EVEN WHILE SHE DANCES AT FULL SPEED, DOING THEM BOTH AT SAME TIME.

    MOST VERSATILE – CIARA, REASON IS CIARA EVEN SINGS REGGAE BETTER THAN A NATIVE CARIBBEAN LOL

    BEST LOOKS – CIARA, REASON IS, CIARA IS A NATURAL BEAUTY FLAWLESS HEAD TO TOE. SHE NEEDS NO MAKEUP OR PHOTOSHOPPIN. RIHANNA HAS A HUGE FOREHEAD, BALD HEADED, KNOBBY KNEES AND IS UGLY, WITH A NASTY EVIL PERSONALITY THAT MAKES HER SO SO UGLY TO EVERYONE BUT THE DEMON POSSESSED

    BEST MUSIC – CIARA, REASON IS, CIARA WITH A TENTH OF THE EXPOSURE, AND A TENTH OF THE PROMOTION DOLLARS SPENT ON RIHANNA STILL MANAGED TO BE A MAJOR CONTENDER AND INTERNATIONAL POP STAR

    CIARA SLAYS Reply:

    @meme, Rihanna style is NOT BETTER THAN CIARA,! Rihanna may be more main stream, nd I repeat she can not sing better than ciara.. Are u serious?? I’m sorry but have u not seem that video of Rihanna tryin to sing hero?? Ijs. Versatile, nd look either. Ciara shits on Rihanna with everything she does. I’m a certified, die heart ciara fan, nd I kno music very well, ciara has a lot of GREAT songs, Rihanna’s are just catchy, very voice sounds the same. Ciara’s not a puppet like Rihanna she’s stayin true to her self nd her craft, nd most importantly her fans.. U dont see her on stage disrespecting her fans nd hittin them in the head with microphones..

    fancy Reply:

    @Nuny, She’s not smart enough to want to learn to do things the right way, so she resorts to spreading internet lies, sitting on her lazy azz instead of rehearsing, and hiring other people to write her music and make all her money.

    I wonder if skank rihanna has ever been in a real Christian church???

    People are comparing Ciara and Rihanna in so many different categories but I think what it all comes down to is their passion for their craft and Ciara takes the cake on that one all day, everyday. Yes, her album sales suck and she hasn’t had a hit on the Hot 100 in years but you can tell she loves what she does and she does it well. Meanwhile, Rihanna just shakes her ass and titties on stage and songwriters and producers just hand her songs to sing on her tour bus because they know ROC Nation will pay them thousands. The younger generation will NEVER UNDERSTAND. Ciara’s struggle is a HONEST STRUGGLE. GET EM’ CICI!!!

    @Kyle, LOL check the credits of her albums, Rihanna does co write just as much as ciara, beyonce, katy, etc……but I agree that Rih isn’t always present on stage.

    @Kyle, The only black people that buy rihanna music are american haters desperate for their ilk to take over the american music scene. Talent is not what they care about

    Ciara came back will force.
    people should stop comparing Rihanna and Nicki Minaj to others, those two came and met Beyonce,Ciara etc in the game,but she has much they have achieve in the short time they been around. Rihanna is great for wat she does,so is Ciara.

    Livin’ It Up was so much better without Nicki. The album is really great, I hope she does great numbers.

    Warning! About to go in! Firstly, this a Ciara post why the comparison’s between her and RiRi? Are you Ciara fans/stans that insecure about your fav or is Rihanna just a complete threat? Secondly, Neither one of them are more vocally talented than the next but however, RiRi transcends globally with her liberal personality and dynamic versatility within music, unique vocals (accent), and daring iconic image just to be clear! Yes, RiRi lacks when it comes to live performances (dancing).

    Apart from CiCi’s sexy beauty, the artistic factor than causes her to be appealing is being an incredible almost iconic live entertainer (dancing) and reminiscent Janet like style of singing. However, CiCi lacks the vocal capacity and versatility appealing factor to crossover internationally because she’s categorised as RnB/crunk artist if there’s such a genre!

    When comes to this post, her music is good not great but a good listen! However, these vid’ snippets lack lustre especially the livin’ it up which could’ve been a more summer-filled video which could’ve showcase her beauty. “Read My Lips” song is nice again nothing special but a good listen! The vid’ is pretty but looks like it might be one frame shot the entire vid’ assuming!

    @#ShadeThrown, they are video SNIPPETS. something simple for the fans to see and to promote the album. they arent meant to be all extravagant because THEY ARE NOT OFFICIAL VIDEOS. and if you heard her new album you would definitely see that she has some crossover hits on her hand.

    #ShadeThrown Reply:

    @IG: ClothezMinded_, That’s my point! Maybe if her snippets were extravagant, they would transcend greater than just snippets of her Boy-Meet-Girl type of swag!

    Ciara’s new cd is dope! I love “Livin it up” but I really wish she didnt have Nicki on it. It’s so much better without her!!

    Honestly, I like Rihanna & Ciara so I really dont understand why it’s so hard for people to enjoy both of their music. If you like one or the other this album is definitely worth listening too.
