INTERVIEW: Ciara Talks Boyfriend Future, “Body Party” Music Video, New Album & More!
Grammy Award winning artist Ciara stopped by Music Choice to chat with me about her “Body Party” music video (released today!), new self-titled album Ciara (out July 9th!), and lots more… you won’t want to miss the 26:30 mark where “CiCi” teaches me her famous “Ride” dance moves!
About her boyfriend, Future, and what she looks for in a man:
“I like someone who’s confident and someone who knows what they want and isn’t afraid of expressing that. I like someone who likes to have a good time. [Future] is a man — and you know what that is right away when you see it. There’s nothing like when a man is just simply being a man and shows up that way.”
About her new self-titled album:
“["Ciara"] ended up being the best title for this album in particular. The One Woman Army hasn’t gone away; I want my fans to know that. It’s now just a part of the whole movement and journey that is me. It’s a solid combination of R&B and pop. More than anything, I want you to feel something. I want you to feel authenticity, where I come from as a person.
