Ciara‘s comeback is close.
Yesterday, the struggling songstress released the official artwork for her new ballad single “Sorry”. There’s no release date for the song yet, but that’s okay, because we’ve got a new CiCi song called “Livin’ It Up” to tide us over until “Sorry” sneaks out.
Much like the fantastic “Overdose”, “Livin’ It Up” is a return to the pop Ciara of Fantasy Ride. It’s a carefree summer jam with island influences, but not in the whole generic Rihanna wannabe kind of way. It’s fresh and fun, bursting with breezy synths and warm guitar riffs. CiCi also sounds pretty solid, with a richer and more full-bodied vocal than her usual sugary-sweet cooing.
“Livin’ It Up” comes to us via an Epic Records playlist released exclusively through Cosmopolitan. Although the majority of the tracks on the playlist are singles, there’s no word on whether “Livin’ It Up” is one too. What we do know is that Ciara’s got two music videos in the works, one for “Sorry”, and another for an as-yet-untitled track. If “Sorry” turns out to be total urban balladry, I wouldn’t be surprised to see CiCi take the multi-format approach and drop a poppier song for top forty audiences.
Are you excited for CiCi’s comeback, or are you still pressed over the whole “Sweat” debacle?
