Ciara Wilson

Ciara Wilson dropped a music video for her new single "Level Up" on Tuesday. The dance track showcases the 32-year-old Seattle homemaker's skilled dance routines as she encourages young women to embrace their independence.

On the track's intro, Ciara says, "Okay, remember what I told you: be your own boss; love yourself; get up and dance; Level Up!"

Ciara's fans give the track a thumbs up. But the only complaint was the lack of melinated dancers in the video.

    The visuals are nice.
    I would have loved IamZoie in the video since they did the Friday Gallop.

  • shay2shaymd

    LOL. I'm with you. It's a NO for me too.

  • Rere

    All I like about the song is the video choreography?. I want Ciara to win in music, but it ain't gonna happen.

  • Soda

    Yes, workout video. No, song.

  • Rere

    ??? just dance, keep the music

  • Miss Thang

    Janet 2.0

  • Quitedeliteful

    This makes for a good exercise video. It might work in the club, I guess. Maybe it's a generational thing but two roses are about right...

  • free

    put your old navy workout gear and leg warmers on and tighten your abs with this new workout video from ci-error.

  • joel adams

    Wait a min.
    This IS 2018 right?
    Why I got flashbacks of 2001?

  • Logan Roberts

    I liked it on mute ?

  • Trace da Ace

    ummm......NO NO NO NO NO....plus I thought she "retired" from the music game and focusing on modeling now??? Somebody should tell her that the singing part....nah ma.....not your forte'.....hang it up love....

  • Trace da Ace

    lmao!!! damn..

  • Pitty Patty

    I like the message in the song. She definitely has leveled up since Future left her in labor at the hospital. She telling these young girls to ge their shyt together. I'm here for it.

    Plus she looks damn good!

  • hi-liter

    Welp, least she doesn't depend on her music to pay the bills anymore. She can use Russ's money to make flop music and videos.

  • Soda

    She telling these young girls to ge their shyt together.
    -------------------------------
    Is she really? This song is yummy, you want it in your tummy.

  • SpillyNillie

    The chile can dance, chile....

  • iWasteTime

    I wish she would play her strengths.
    A Dance workout stream or app, with routines for all ages and levels.
    Include the little ones too, show how dancing helps in all sports.

  • Pebbles

    Level up ! will be the new hood anthem

    I like the video, cici looked very well put together, the dancers ?? ?????? looked good & on point too . Lastly, the hook is catchy.

    It’s a ??

  • Miss Thang

    She's such a good dancer and performer, but this song is whackkkkkkk. Makes me sad because she has such potential as a performer!

  • Pitty Patty

    The overall message is good.

    Beyonce told the girls to get in formation at same time she said "when he fukk me good I take his ass to Red Lobster"

    Gotta put a lil candy in the medicine

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Ciara bout to make me fight her. I told that pretty bish she dont gotta do this no more. I'm not gonna lie I will fugg this song up in the gym tho. Be in the mirror twerking giving face and body.

  • Ni Ni

    *clutches imaginary pearls ?

  • ThisIsWhat43LooksLike

    Cackling ?(slaps knee)!!!

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    The gag is professional dancers dont make for good singers. There may be a few singers who can dance and perform but they are usually few and far between. You either get one or the other. Alot of the dancing singers do takes hours and hours of choreography.

  • Kemi

    I just need her to dance... she’s fierce with the dancing.

  • Coy little wink

    Not interested enough to watch...ill just read the comments

  • Dem Moore

    I like the message and the beat but she's singing to fast I couldn't drive to this I would drive right off the road.

  • Simone

    Her looks and dance skills don't match her music. She's visually stunning and flawless but the new music just isn't good. She needs new writers or producers or something. Kanye West? Mike Dean?

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Shes an excellent dancer who can carry a mild tune. It doesn't make for the best music. Videos and performances be lit but the music is just eh!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Said the same thang ... same thang chile ...Cierror ain't getting me https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c1425c997ed3319b16098cad0d4bebaabde80cd22860d557863b4ff2c949aed9.gif

  • SayWhatNow?

    Okay I've listened twice, Just because I keep hearing different songs. I hear Lucy Pear dance tonight and throw that ass in a circle.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    No thanks. She need to let it go.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    I loved Beyonce for this.

  • Ni Ni

    She needs to market this to grown women. I didnt watch a full minute, but she should have worn a track suit like the other dancers instead of having her cooch and azz out. I can't take anyone serious when your legs all gapped open in front of the camera.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Because her vocal range hasn't improved in 17 years.

  • Renee26

    Ci Ci did that!! She looks amazing!!

  • Bashi22

    I think Ciara should focus on coming out with some products house hold, cosmetic, furniture or start up company.

  • Applebum

    Sounds like a duplication of a few songs.
    Sounds like a Beyonce upgrade you song.
    Sounds like a Love & hip hop reality star’s single. Something Joseline would put out.

    What an easy way out. Level up level up level up level up level up? That’s the chorus?

    I’m good love, enjoy.

  • Renee26

    You hear me! I was popping it right along with em ?

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Ciara sounds awful

  • Renee26

    I agree 100%

  • MookieFly

    This could be a workout video if you mute it. I wouldnt be able to keep up with her ass, but I'll lose weight trying.

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    Ciara fuked up when she didn't take advantage of Beyoncé pregnancy. IMO Ciara can give a Bey a run for her money on choreography. CeeCee can move too. I would love to see a performance showdown between CeeCee and Beyoncé.......P.S how the fuk does the computer automatically put a ' over the e in Beyoncé automatically?????

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    The way I just holleredddd!! LMFAOOOOOO Do I need to call security to escort you out the building??

  • Rayne

    This is workout music. I love Ciara. ...but it’s gonna be a no dawg.

  • Coy little wink

    Why not just be a mom and housewife for a while? I'm over celebrity product pushing and consumerism...

  • Wreckognize Game

    She is pretty and can dance.

  • Rayne

    That’s a helluva combination lmao ??

  • Renee26

    Ummm I liked looking at her snatched body
    Plus she has to stand out from the dancers as the star

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Beyonce is a singer who can perform. Ciara is a performer who can sing. You see what I did there. They have the ability to do both but there are major strengths and weaknesses with both of them.

  • Ang

    Welll, I like how coordinated and in sync the dancers are. I'm sure that took a lot of time and effort. That commendable. Ciara is a good dancers and she worked hard. I could listen to this on the treadmill. ?

  • Ni Ni

    Coulda stood out in a black track suit or something else to me. Everybody wants to be a clone, oh well ...

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    True. I'm not a fan of either one but they both have stage presence. I would love to see a competition between the two of them tho.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    OK!!!! Cant help it!!

  • Ang

    ITA. That's the perfect way to describe both of them. The only good thing for people like Ciara who...let's just say aren't as gifted in the vocal department...is that Beyoncé has decided to stop singing and just talk on her songs for some reason. Beyoncé is basically creating a level playing field for people shouldn't be on her level talent wise. So I do think Ciara missed an opportunity. But, then again during that time she was getting her real life in order. She has a good marriage with a man who loves her and her child. So maybe she's the one really winning in the long run. ?

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    This is all so true!!! Love your outlook on this!!!

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    That would be dope. Beyonce would be petty and start really singing tho, so Ciara at that point would have to start stripping LOLOLOL

  • Vegas1989

    You made me bust out laughing. I had to just get up and leave...I thought it was a workout video myself. I'm with you. I like Ciara, but she did a Jay-Z and recycled some of her dance moves as he recycles his beats and lyrics....I see Randy Jackson saying, "That's going to be a no for me dawg."...LOL

  • KcoolMuziq

    What happened to Ciara's modeling career with IMG Models?

  • Ang

    LMBO ??

  • KcoolMuziq

    NEVER no one compares to Janet.

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    Again, Not a fan of either so I really cant judge the music. So is Beyoncé a better singer without auto tunes? A lot of folks say Bey voice isn't that good without help. I don't know because I only hear what's on the radio. I don't buy music at all.

  • Vegas1989

    I'm done. Break Time....Fooling with you and your comment. I'm suppose to be sitting up a meeting...I busted out laughing because of you...Now I have to go take a break....Somebody go get me a Kit Kat Bar....

  • Miss Thang

    "Lucy Pear dance tonight and throw that ass in a circle"

    how, Sway??? lmaoooooo my brain can't even comprehend this combo.

  • BingBangBoom

    I love Ci - Ci. She is a pure example of never giving up on what you love. Despite low album sales over the years she keeps pushing. True artist in her own right. I'm sure the label wants 2003 - 05 Ciara back. Those were her biggest years. Like it or not she did impact the game.

  • AmericanDream

    ‘Level up’

    Man , how I hate that term! But I guess when you got saved by some quarterback who got $31,000,000 signing bonus and $61,000,000 guaranteed, you can croon about ‘level up’

  • AmericanDream

    Same thing that happened to her singing career

  • January Jones

    Exactly

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    ??? hunny that’s putting it real light

  • Owww76

    Song is TRASH! She refuses to evolve musically and that is why she keeps dropping these bricks! Nothing she makes stands apart. Try again Ci-error!

  • Owww76

    LMFAOOOOOO!

  • Owww76

    You got that right when mama is still out here 52 years old killing the stage. Ci-error will never have that longevity. After that second CD is when her music career started declining and nothing but bricks since.

  • Miss Thang

    Ciara is reductive of Janet, just like Britney was, and even Beyonce. But no one wants to give Janet credit for the influence she has on modern performers.

  • Waya Hedia

    f o r m u l a

  • Miss Thang

    My computer doesn't put an accent over Beyonce's name. I remember when Beyonce first came out and there was no accent over the e lol she added that I guess to seem more sophisticated or exotic in some way.

  • Kayke

    Good gym song. I dig it.

  • Miss Thang

    Paula Abdul, Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, etc. There's a long list of dancers who can't really sing but have good music. Ciara needs better producers and songwriters.

  • KcoolMuziq

    True! But she’s finally getting the recognition she rightfully deserves this year with two awards and another one coming up.

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    Maybe its just on SR website. I thought I was trippin but every time I type her name the ' is over the e. I have a very common feminine name that has a e in it but no ' over it.... I just found that peculiar.

  • Rayne

    ????

  • missmiami305

    She should just seek out a deal for a family oriented reality show.

  • taurus_32

    She can’t sing ?????Never could

  • SayWhatNow?

    Lmao, okay when she stated singing, that was the same tune as dance tonight just different words, and then that damn chorus had the same beat as go best friend go best friend throw that ass in a circle lol. I swear lol

  • SayWhatNow?

    If I knew how to up load stuff I would show you. The song goes 5, 4, 321 fuck it up.

  • SayWhatNow?

    But that's what I heard lmao

  • Rayne

    Lmfaooo cause I went back and tried to hear it too ???

  • Beverly Johnson

    I don't care what song she come out with, nothing will be better than Ride with Luda, so personally for me she'll never grow. Sorry!!!!

  • TheThrowbackBeauty

    My little cousin loves it. She’s 5. It’s a no for me dawg.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I hate this chick as a sanger. But I wont deny Ciara one of the best female dancers to come along since Damita Jo.

  • Nik

    I'm not a fan but this was a nice little surprise. I won't add it to my playlist, though. The dancing was great.

  • fasho

    This is the f%ck it up challenge song and she is just saying level up.

  • Nik

    LMBO! Play it safe, love.

  • leapyearpisces

    Indeed, and my homegirl that lives in ATL met her, and said she is SUPER tall....like taller than she appears in pictures.....in my next life I want some gams...and not TREE TRUNKS with cankles. LOLOLOLOLOL

  • Simone

    I am a Ciara! But I hated it.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    It's a cute song but not for her age group, IMO. Love the dancing though. She can dance her a** off.

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    CITY GIRLS!!!!!!!!!
    Loves them.

  • Tay Gee

    Great Job Cici!! Ciara loves to dance, so why not make a dance track? Makes sense to me, it's not about if it appeals to a younger or older audience... It's a dance track, it appeals to dancers. #period #dancetrack #getemcici

  • roy

    I know the song is called, “Level Up” but the video was a, “Step Down”. Ciara dont attempt a comeback until your 110 percent ready. We’re rooting for you. #butdontwasteourtime

  • Tiff J

    Promise is my fav video of Ciara's. For this video, they shouldn't have less dancers & spent more of the budget on lighting.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    I actually dig it...she stayed in her lane

  • Owww76

    LOL! I remember when she first came out i was like who the hell is this singing like Pebbles Flintstone! I was surprised she lasted this long.

  • Owww76

    Yes say that again, I cant stand when people say she's the new Janet. I am like have you ever listened to janet's vastly diverse catalog. That is what i've always loved about her she has been doing so many different genres. No one is on her level with music like that.

  • Owww76

    Bout time give her the flowers now rightfully so!!

  • therealkym

    I love Beyonce but Ciara has her beat she can dance her ass off! She's killin B. With the right grooming...she can be on Janet Jackson's level, when she was in her prime!

  • therealkym

    Yes, that's her gift! She's an EXCELLENT dancer

  • cusp_23

    Yeah... a lot of her music has a nursery rhyme/cheerleader-esque vibe to it. It sounds like something your local high school squad would create. A lot of artists are obsessed with being credited as the songwriter, however, they sabotage their ability to have a strong catalog of music. And if you don’t have a strong catalog, then ppl aren’t going to buy your music nor pay money to see you on tour. Folks are so obsessed with cutting corners and making money that they’re actually losing money cause they keep creating garbage ass music. File Ashanti under this dilemma as well. Another artist who insists on writing their own crappy music and then wonder why they have next to no fans who are willing to buy/stream/or see them on tour. These artists need to find a balance and start paying people who can actually write and produce hits. Instead of insisting on putting out nursery rhymed garbage

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    This happened to TLC back in the day. They shot a music video in a theater in Atlanta. All day shoot, big budget, lots of extras. Then we got word weeks later that the video was too dark. ? I won't embarrass the director by naming him, but LaFace Records fired him and hired a new director to reshoot.

  • cusp_23

    Me too!!! ?I will NEVER forget when her debut album Goodies came out, and my cousin was bumping the cd. I was like this girl cannot sing wtf?!

  • cusp_23

    Yep. A regular one-hit-wonder.

  • cusp_23

    Lmao! That career was bought and paid for. Nobody wants to pay $9 for her album, who the hell is going to pay to see her stand around with deer in headlights expression in expensive ass clothes?

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    First cd was everythang and I loved body party. I still root for her tho...I quit sometime umm ago tho..

  • cusp_23

    Damn ??

  • pure_rachet

    This song is so terrible!!!! Dancers did the damn thang though.

  • cusp_23

    Ciara act like she don’t need money cause nobody is paying to hear or see her. Maybe Russ’s money is long like that ?????

  • cusp_23

    She’s too cheap to pay for it and wants credited as a writer. Problem is, her ass only knows cheerleading jingles, and basic beats.

  • cusp_23

    Lol sad but true

  • leapyearpisces

    With their raunchy tails!!!! LOLOLOLOL. I love me a raunchy spokesperson for my raunchy side. LOLOLOL

    Yes you have a good point but we live in an area that is pushing women financial independence. They make it seem like a stay at home mother is lazy. This I'm independent era 21th century ladies want to be a boss resume read as such Mother, Singer, Dancer, Entrepreneur, wife , homemaker ect.

    according to reports, he is supposed to be credited for her using a "sample". hell she just changed the words.

    People use samples all the time. I'm sure he got paid.

  • MSGREENMINUSTHEENVY

    I like it!

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    This is pretty common in music. People take the beat and sound and just change the words. Like the time Ma$e and them remade "Jealous Girl" by New Edition and changed it into "Jealous Guy" lol

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    It's called using a sample. Have we forgotten how the music industry works? lol

  • Dahl

    Yup

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    Sadly, most of her age group are not as in shape as her lol Many can't get into dance music over age 30 because they are tired, lazy and possibly overweight.

  • soldierwoman89

    Thank you!

  • Juliaquan C Spain

    Horrible.....

  • Miami8981

    I remember very vividly when Ciara had lost her damned mind and was about to marry Past. She had been fitted for her wedding dress and everything. Then she found out he was still having sex with all his baby mamas and their play cousins too and that she was not his future. I saw her on TV doing an interview and right in the middle of the interview she began crying and she said to the interviewer "I don't know what's wrong with me and why I keep crying". It was obvious because the next day she announced her engagement was off.

    This is my point. Ciara is in a different place now in her life. I'm happy for her. She's stronger and more confident and has definitely upped her game by marrying UP and making serious business moves so I get the "Level Up" theme. Here's the reason why I did not like the video. I don't club so I have to ask do people really dance off of music that fast in the club? Secondly, my back was hurting after watching all that humping and twerking. Lastly, Ciara will never be a singer. She is a dancer so there is just no good reason or excuse why she should continue to try to sing. I cringe when I hear her attempt to sing. And my back is still hurting.

  • Zedian Queen

    I actually LOVE it...why am I surprised!

  • kennedy220

    lol ummm it was cleared so not a rip off....I mean the old school used to remake songs the same year and month..lol..plus I'm not sure Ciara writes and produces her own

  • kennedy220

    I like it!!!! I don't understand why Ciara never surpassed her main competition Brittney Spears...I can't think of one Brit song I like or dance routine

  • speakinmymind

    ...tired, lazy and overweight is exactly right.????

  • Mark mcharm

    This song is horrible ?i can't get jiggy with this sh..

  • Mark mcharm

    Because Ciara thinks she is on Janet Jacksons level and makes crappy music, Britney Spears knows her lane and her audience grew up with her.

  • hottlanta

    She did a special grinding dance for Future when she met him. I saw she did a special grinding video dance for Russell recently and I am sure Bow Wow got one as well. So when she dances in front of her man it ain't nothing special she has done it before. She don't need to level up she needs to changer her own love game or she is gonna end up with the same results

  • bemetoo

    not a fan but sounds better than what beyonce released

  • kennedy campbell

    All opinion but i think Brit’s music sucks and she thinks she’s Janet Jackson lol. But in reality it’s all marketing and radio play on pop stations. I’m sure a lot of them think they are Janet If they admire her

  • taurus_32

    wat song??? asking fo a friend of a friend

  • Choppituph

    Its a cool track!! Im surprised that so many people are ragging on Ciara's vocals. Janet J. built her WHOLE career with same vocal talent. And!!!Ciara is naturally talented in dance vs. Paula getting JJ's two step together. IJS

  • Cali

    I remember very vividly when Ciara had lost her damned mind and was about to marry Past.

    LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

  • Cali

    Love Bey too AND Janet, but Ciara has Bey in the dance area and dare I say...Janet too. Exiting now lol

  • Isignedup4this

    Did you forget B. Spears is ‘white’ lol. That’s the token. She was the new generation madonna. Not as edgy but no vocals and more smoke and mirror. The timing was good and so many wanna bes followed. Everybody knows Ms Auguilera killed Brit vocally but somehow Brit always stayed on top.

  • Isignedup4this

    I love it as well. I’m super surprised. The choreography was everything. The only person this tightly choreographed is Chris Brown. This was a super dope yet simple video and the record feels fun.

  • Isignedup4this

    I concur. I’m surprised I liked the energy behind and the song and the choreography was killa. I see lots of dance challenges about to happen.

  • Solstice

    Yes I agree about Chris Brown. He is truly multitalented!! They can both dance the hell out of the floor!

  • Malcom Flex

    Poor man's Beyonce/Janet Jackson. But she didn't get the memo. The star should be flashy in the red and her background dancers should fade into the background wearing black.

  • cusp_23

    No comparison whatsoever lol. It’s more accurate to compare Ciara’s career to Paula Abdul than to Janet Jackson. Paula has like a handful of hits and faded to black. Janet actuallly had 10 albums that charted well and were hit records by the time she was Ciara’s age. Hell, she was in her PRIME success at Ciara’s age. Ciara’s last hit was like 10 years ago.

  • cusp_23

    Brit was a better performer & had a likability factor that played well to the middle America market (the biggest consumer market). Christina was too edgy and and anti (similar in a lot of ways to Rihanna), but the bases that they needed her to appeal to just never caught on. But talent had nothing to do with Brits success. She was a cute girl with a sexy image

    You’re crazy lol everyone loved Britney in the late 90s early 2000s, INCLUDING Beyonce who tried to mimic her performances and success, but could never overtake her. But Britney had middle America AND black American cause she mimic Janet Jackson performances and worshipped her/Michael. And the girls music, during that period, was dope! Britney had black writers and producers, her music was good lol.

    You are correct stating that Janet’s career pales in comparison to Ciara’s. But my point was vocally they are the same. Neither can really sing. However Ciara could out dance Janet on her worst day. Even if Janet was in her prime. Janet’s already famous family ties propelled her music ventures effortlessly. I love Janet tho! She is a true entertainer!

  • cusp_23

    Lol and Paula could out dance Janet in her prime too lol, she was also a limited singer with no star power and no personality —->Ciara. All that choreography and limited singing hasn’t done anything for Ciara’s career, nor has it expanded her fan base. At Ciara’s age Janet was releasing Design of a Decade. Repeat. At Ciara’s age Janet released Design of a decade. This woman had so many damn hits by her 10th year in the industry she could fill a whole damn album AND spunned new hits. And let’s not forget the biggest albums/performances that came next lol. Ciara had a playbook on performing BECAUSE of Janet. Ciara doesn’t have the charisma or the talent to create a genre of music and dance that could inspire future generations the way that Janet did. It’s easier to say Ciara is a better dancer when Janet is the one that create the playbook for her to get on her level and build on it. Girl, you crazy and bias lol

    Ok so it was cleared that still does not take away from the fact that it is a mediocre version of another song ! Your going to remake a song give it a new twist don’t just regurgitate the same bs that already been done! If she does not write or produce her own she needs better people around her

  • ViolettaBliss

    Using a sample is different than just rehashing an old song ! I don’t here any bit of difference ! WEAK

  • kennedy campbell

    Lol true . She’s a sprite..and actual vocal talent i think was on its way out during this time with the start of her. Actually that had been brewing but to be fair people that can barely sing (as fans) need someone to look up to as well lol

  • kennedy campbell

    I guess she was a better performer although i thought it was too cheerleader. I can’t stand Xtinas singing voice. That’s not to say she can’t sing her ass off though. It’s funny though thinking about it she was the Rihanna Of edgy back then

  • kennedy campbell

    Lol I’m not crazy. I just have to like your singing voice in order to pay attention or the music behind the voice. In my eyes destiny child and Beyonce were underrated back then compared to her. I remember thinking these girls have better singing voices and songs than Brit and aren’t going anywhere. So i see where marketing, the write skin, and pop music will get you. Reminds me of madonna and Cindy Lauper a little... Cindy was the better singer and Madonna with her filler voice killed her

  • kennedy campbell

    Ok so you’re not from the old school where songs were remade and almost sounded the same. Either way i see no problem with it because i don’t really know the original. There will always be people that like the remakes better whether the song has a twist or regurgitated. I like a few Xtina songs but wished someone else sang them because i can’t stabd her singing voice . There’s a market for almost anything

  • ALLMINE?

    Her singing voice/tone is terrible.. omg

  • ALLMINE?

    Janet has some of the best slow jams of all time.. not everyone has to be a gospel singer.

    It's too juvenile for me but I love Ciara so I really hoped my children would like it. They don't. I'm so disappointed. Ciara just doesn't have an ear for what's hot. And what dignified black woman makes a video full of pale women in 2018? She just seems out of touch.

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    She keeps working with pop producers hoping to become the next Ariana Grande. No matter how many flops she puts out, she keeps sticking to that formula. It's crazy at this point.

  • oshh16

    Twenty Foreplay off Design off a Decade still my joint!
    Trying to compare Ciara to Janet is a fail and an insult to Janet.

  • Junkanoo

    The beat isn't bad the problem is the lyrics don't tell a story its just a bunch of random words thrown together the lyrics should paint a picture without repeating the same words

  • Monica Mackey

    I like it... I love the dancing, lyrics and message

  • Nnenna Ogbonna

    J.R Rotem produced...
    Sample from DJ Telly Tellz
    Choregraphed by Parri$ who used her Samoan dance crew Request that are comprised of 6 dance crews who have won the World Hip Hop Dance championship 3 times...What isn't there to like! It's a fun dance song...lol

  • Vixen

    I like Beyoncé but I keep telling people if It wasn’t for Brittney Spears having them babies and depression which halted her career, Beyoncé would have never gained that much success. Her team saw an opening and jumped on it.

  • Vixen

    Chris and Ciara did their thing when they danced together at an awards show...I Knew Rihanna was pissed when’s Ciara was dancing on Chris the way that she was cause Rhi Rhi can’t dance.

  • cusp_23

    Yup

  • Owww76

    It really is, because janet's catalog is so vast! She covers so many different genres that Ci-error could only dream about. That is the thing Janet constantly reinvented with each project, each CD didnt sound like the last. Ci-error still stuck on that Gimme That fast pop sounding ish and it just sounds kiddie coming from her being that she has been out for so long.

    I wish the the lyrics were better it's basically F!ck it up the remix ft Ciara
