The R&B song and dance queen dropped a new video for her single, Thinking Bout You. Thus showing us how to ‘Level Up’ with her epic dance moves and killer body. This video is a playful video as she is playing around the room while she waits on a date that arrives at the end of the video. Although we don’t see who the mystery man is. We are sure we all know that Mr. Russell Wilson may be the guy. The cutest part is hearing Issa Rae call and tease Cici about her date. Take a look at the video below!
There seems to be a misconception in the black community that a girl can’t mature and “Level Up.” Hit R&B singer, dancer, and model Ciara has been the subject of criticism as of late. As early 2000s rapper Slim Thug took to radio air waves dishing his opinion on how Ciara can’t truly be happy with Russell Wilson because she is accustomed to thugs, and bad boys and Russell Wilson is well…a square. Here is the video of what the rapper spit out about the talented songstress and her marriage.
But what is seeming to be so troubling is how black men can’t accept the fact that somebody accepted Ciara for the woman that she is. Along with her child. Yes! A single black man married, a single black mother and made her a wife. They also had a child of their own. What Future didn’t see in her Russell did and now they have a beautiful family together. What woman hasn’t made poor dating choices throughout her life. She went from a girl to a woman. God forbid she matures into a “grown woman” status. Hence, the title to her new hit song, “Level Up.”
Ciara seems to be a subject of criticism since the beginning of her career. She has been talked about simply due to her height, and not being born a full blown woman which was soon debunked. But what we can’t figure out is why she needs to be labeled as “damaged goods,” just because Future (Ciara’s ex and son’s father) deemed her unworthy although he has several children of his own. It seems like Future is the one who needs to think about his own future with all the kids he’s making. Besides why would Ciara need to be with Russell solely because of his cash when she is making her own just fine. It seems to us that when ever people are happy there will always be haters waiting to throw salt in the game. Russell Wilson may be what other bad boys consider ‘simp’ but only if they knew these are the men that real women truly want. Not the smooth talking, future faking, baby momma having, trail of babies everywhere with no future guys.
Ciara wanted a man with a ‘future,’ and she finally got one is what it seems like and now that she is glowing and leveling up in life everyone has something to say. Well, Cici go ahead and be happy with you and yours.
Ok people!!! It’s here again. The 2016 Billboard Awards are airing this weekend!!! Leading the pack are The Weekend with 19 nominations, Justin Bieber with 16, Fetty Wap and Drake tie with 11 nominations and Adele and Taylor Swift with 8. I’m rooting for my girl Adele!! HELLO FROM THE OTHER SIIIIDDDDEEEE!!!! Yasssss! And of course my future husband Drake, duh lol…performances by the Biebs, Rihanna, DNCE, Nick Jonas and so much more. You know that imma have ALL the details for you tomorrow night!
“Goodies,” and “Body Party,” pop and R&B singer Ciara has in my opinion truly upgraded. She went from Atlanta based rapper, Future, who is the father of her son to now Football star, Russell Wilson. And when I say, “upgrade” I don’t mean this in terms of looks,(Future is quite an attractive guy) I mean in terms of respect for her as we all could tell. He says cheating had nothing to do with their relationship but instead they grew a part and wanted to make “other decisions.”
Now Ciara has grown and moved on, via the song, “I Bet,” she is now abstaining from sex with new beau Russell Wilson and someone (Future) sounds pretty upset about it, stating, “He may be just saying it to say it, God didn’t tell me that. God didn’t tell me to wait.”
Okay, we get it, you guys didn’t wait. But why put her new relationship on blast? Sounds childish and immature, Sounds a little bitter, “I Bet.”
