Ciara

Ciara Wilson dropped the full video for her latest single "Dose", which is the follow-up to her #1 iTunes hit "Level Up”.

Ciara tapped Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms to appear in her music video, which features Ciara and her dancers wearing one legged unitards, a marching band, and a young dancer named Jayla.

Ciara and Jayla

On the inspirational "Dose," Ciara encourages her fans to "get back up again when you fall." The dance beat, produced by Darkchild, goes hard. Unfortunately Ciara's weak vocals serve as a distraction from the upbeat track and visual.

    Just looking at the stills for the video & thinking ciara, like her other singer colleagues , should give up recording etc & see if they can raise their children to be of any productive use or position in society.
    Aging starlets are seen. But I guess I should just enjoy watching them play themselves. .. & the younger wannabes follow suit ? ...

  • ohdearme

    Club music.

  • MsVAllDay

    I like it!!! I definitely see this being on my gym playlist!

  • Lady_Elle

    I like the video!
    We will see this choreography at a lot of the HBCU games!
    It is CLEAN, There is a message, you can hear the words...
    The little girl is not the typical look (LHLS).
    Many shades of black women.
    I like it!

  • Junkanoo

    This video came up in my YouTube feed this morning and surprisingly I checked it out. Ciara looks great, I liked the dance moves now the beat was alright and her singing not the strongest but over all not bad.

  • KcoolMuziq
  • Kanyade

    its good. needed more lighting in that dark gym.

  • hottlanta

    They just arrested someone for the bomb.

  • BingBangBoom

    I LOVED IT! These dance squads and teams are going to f*ck it up to this song.. They need more videos like this for these kids to dance to. Good for you Ciara and Today is Friday and payday so I am living my BEST LIFE. Two roses are better than none.

  • the guest

    Keep rising Ciara!

    I just have to say it, because it needs to be said, Future is the stupidest man alive. Any man that deceives, misleads, abuses and uses women then live their life like a deadbeat dad is stupid and I am not a fan of using the word stupid. It's so beautiful to see Ciara and her baby boy overcome.

  • OvertheMississippi

    It wouldn't hurt my feelings one bit if I never saw or heard from Ciara, Janet, Mariah, Mary J., and J. Lo. ever again!!!! Bow out gracefully. Same with old lady MaDonna.

  • WhoKnew

    Agreed. It showed up on my phone last night so I checked it out. My thoughts are the same.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Happy 33rd (belated--yesterday) birthday Ciara!!!!

  • FukkFolks2018

    AMEN! You better speak

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    I like it. So gladly she's back. We really needed her. Music had gotten so stagnant

  • BingBangBoom

    You said that... She a strong black lady!

  • bemetoo

    ciara still has youth so I don't mine her trying to put out music..she just can't sing

  • bemetoo

    her and Monica need to make up

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    They were beefing??

  • Coy little wink

    You mean Rihanna?

  • FukkFolks2018

    Both

  • ThisIsWhat43LooksLike

    The lady can dance!! Body on point, hair looking fierce and she is killing it?????
    #WeSeeYouCiCi ?

  • FukkFolks2018

    Not real public like. Monica posted a wedding pic for her anni few years back and tagged in all her bridesmaids. Except Ciara. Of course Black social media called into question immed. Then the rumor started, bc not sure how true it is...that they had fallen out bc Mo knew Future was cheating and didnt tell Ciara or some mess.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    I like the woman Ci has become and growing to be... I dig her style and the example she is setting... #TEAMCI!

  • iWasteTime

    Not even Dark Child
    Dancing is cool though

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    No they don't...Ci Ci is doing just fine with her circle. Let Monica stay hood with Tiny and 'em...BYE!

  • rockstar2142

    Why should they bow out when they still got it.

  • bemetoo

    damn...monica just seems like whoever is from atl she supporting

  • bemetoo

    lol naw riri ain't fawking with her

  • bemetoo

    yea all over future side chicks

  • rockstar2142

    Cici doesn’t get enough credit for her dancing. I think she is the best of this generation.????

  • FukkFolks2018

    Agree.

  • Miss Thang

    "just bored with older women struggling to be what they aren't"

    how is she doing that in this video?

  • Miss Thang

    i love watching those dance teams on YouTube.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    No disrespect to Ciara, but if I'm talking bout level up...I ain't doing it in no dimly lit gym. She looks beautiful tho?

  • rockstar2142

    Her & riri made up I believe

  • Pebbles

    I enjoyed it!

  • Tiff J

    Cici has always been the same... consistent. She came out dancing, she's still dancing. So she's not trying to be anything that she's not. Now if she came out in a gown, trying to sing big love ballots, then I could agree with you.

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    Am I the only person who thinks she should stick to choreography and definitely modeling. She can dance her azz off and the camera loves her! But she needs to stop singing in that whiny azz voice it's annoying, It was annoying back when it was Janet Jackson doing it and its still annoying because Ci-errah sounds just like her to me. Stop with the singing Ma, please!!

  • Tiff J

    Agree that they could've used more lighting, but I enjoyed the video. I was waiting for the street scenes though. She teased them dancing in the streets on IG. I was waiting for them to bust out of the gym and hit the street. I thought the gym scene was practice for the street scenes.

  • Fire & Ice

    Ciara's body ?? ?? ?

  • Sassie

    Love CiCi....HATE the song and the beat.....

  • Alicia.Ashe

    One of the ladies dancing with her I follow on Instagram. She’s from Miami and teaches girls dance love her. supa_blackgirl is her name on Instagram.

  • Satin Panther

    Naw apparently Monica did some snake chit, got Ciara out there in ATL looking stupid and kept her in the dark about certain chit including something that went down with Future but she still tried to call herself a "friend."

  • JENNYJONES1

    KEYSHIA LANCE BOTTOM MUST NOT WANT TO GET RE-ELECTED AS ATLANTA MAYOR WITH THAT FAMU SHIRT ON IN A MUSIC VIDEO. LOL!!!!........JENNY JONES!!!

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Idk how Monica gets a pass all the time. Everyone's always raving about she is best friends with everybody and she is so nice, kind and all these things. But I get dirty vibes from her, I cant help it, always felt that way ever since her and Brandys beef.

  • JENNYJONES1

    I DISAGREE B/C THAT'S ALL SHE GETS CREDIT FOR BESIDES HER BODY B/C HER VOCALS AND LYRICS ARE WEAK & HORRIBLE. SHE ACTUALLY IS THE CLONED (FAKE) JANET JACKSON ESP 10 YRS AGO. THEY BOTH CAN DANCE LIKE CRAZY, AWESOME BODIES, FASHION KILLERS, SPEAK SOFTLY, HAD BABIES BY WACK NEGROS AND NEITHER CAN SING........JENNY JONES!!!!

  • Satin Panther

    Monica is HOOD and you can tell by the men she dated in the past C-Murder, Rocco etc except for Shannon. I used to know this guy that worked in the studio in ATL that knew Monica way back in the day and he said the same chit and that she would curse yo a$$ out in a hot minute but had to portray a certain good girl image like Brandy was doing until Brandy looked stupid lying about being married when she was preggo with her daughter to not look like she had a child out of wedlock. But anyway I look at both of them broads side ways sometimes but the industry always try to pin black women who are peers against each other. They both came out at the same time singing POP/R&B so it was like they were competing.

  • Judge Mental Will

    #1 on itunes ?? Sandra please stop saying that! It tickles my fancy. 1 rose? You been unimpressed lately, not a surprise because music not the same anymore.

  • gellie

    I actually love Ciara. But I have NEVER been a fan of her vocals. I still root for her, though.

  • free

    did you see her show when it was on? i really liked it.

  • Keyshia Ray

    ?

  • free

    nothing new or innovative from ci-error. it gave me bey and janet and richard simmons. she would kill the workout video genre but she prolly think she's too good for that.

  • Coy little wink

    A billionaire is wack to you? Interesting...

  • Keyshia Ray

    Agree with Mariah,Janet unless she doing her old stuff,Jennifer Lopez lol and Ciara.

  • JazzyBossyJen

    Well didn’t look like she was trying to hard..She just made a nice dance track. Difference between her a Janet is she has a repertoire of no. 1 hit songs, that had the masses whispering and dancing to all day..

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    That's exactly what I was thinking like ummmmm!!!

  • dontgetblocked

    A video with black people needs bright lighting. I love the one legged bodysuit. What did that little girl have on and why was she there? Why was the mayor there? I enjoyed the marching band. Finally, the song sucked.

  • Coy little wink
  • Navybeans95

    ...that one leg out is everything...yess boo

  • OfficialDime

    She wants to be Janet so bad it must be annoying AF to Janet. She even tries to sound like her & who wants to do that??? STALKER....Finally the Michael Jackson sounding knock song by Dark Child SUCKS!!

  • Strappyheels

    Song was ok!!
    She sounded better than I’ve ever heard.

    Sorry, but Beyoncé was definitely the inspiration for this.

    Cierror body is gorgeous!!

  • Strappyheels

    She competing with Beyoncé!!???

  • Strappyheels

    She should forget about singing though

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    LMFAOOO!!!!

  • free

    the little girl was on instagram or facebook or one of them places dancing her lil tail off and it was shared many times due to her self-confidence and technique so i guess ci-error is featuring her on the video. not sure how or why keisha got dragged into it.

  • Applebum

    No sex appeal from this person. And I hate when they put kids in their phuckery. ?

  • Strappyheels

    ?????

  • hottlanta

    Why folks gotta keep bringing up future he has moved on as well. How would u feel if folks keep bringing up an ex n u have moved on. Then if her r russell got divorced folks would be passing out all ova the place. It just a relationship dayumm. It is not that big of a deal. She can lose russell like the rest of us who lose men who made us soooooo happy. The average person that divorces doesnt have fist fights or arguments.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    No. I didn’t know she had one, mad I missed it.

  • free

    google "step it up" on lifetime.

  • Keyshia Ray

    Not a Beyonce fan however she is not even on her level.

  • Strappyheels

    NOT at all!!

  • Anonymouse

    So Ciara was just what... an innocent doe in the woods? Women can’t have it both ways. You also have a responsibility to not put yourself in a position to be deceived, misled, abused and used.

  • Miss3rdWard

    I think Ciara has fans, but it's def not the over 30 crowd that she got started with. As a new "dance mom", I know she is definitely loved by the dance girls all over the internet and in my corner of the universe, so there's that. Plus, she doesn't need the money. I think she's cool. She'll never be a legit star like Beyonce, but she has her niche and if she likes it, I love it. The song is okay, not terrible.

  • Jay Blossom

    Ciara is doing positive things. She is promoting endorphins in people to celebrate by exercising. Her message is efficient and not toxic. Good vibes and energy to kids also.

  • ALLMINE?

    Is that beyonces band?

  • ALLMINE?

    How many chances does one singer deserve? Who funds her career?

  • ALLMINE?

    Terrible singing voice?.. shes made some of the worst music I've ever heard..

  • T Willis

    I like that Ciara gave shine to some of the performers. The dancing was good, but umm, some of those dancers didn’t have the the right body to be gyrating in a half legged onesie. More specifically, the red bone chick. I swear I was seeing cellulite and an untoned flabby @$$ bouncing up and down. Not a good look ma.

    And I chuckled at the entire performance being in a gymnasium. Only because Ciara’s music is so comparable to anthem-like nursery rhymes that cheerleaders perform at football games (note: she’s a former cheerleader - and I think captain of her cheer squad - which explains so much about her music/lyrics).

  • T Willis

    I remember (during the emergence of popular urban blogs) when sites were reporting that she was being dropped from at least two record labels. I remember her getting dropped when that Basic album came out. Then I remember her being excited about a new label, only to get dropped again (Body Party album?) ... and then she was geeked about some other label that signed her lol. I think she knew marrying well was her only hope, because I don’t think there’s going to be another major label waiting to sign her. If this album flops, or underperforms in any way, we’ll hear about her and Russell starting their own music label - or she’ll announce plans to go independent. Then her career will look like Ashanti’s. Performing at high school graduations.

  • devonia

    I agree 100%

  • Wreckognize Game

    Question to the Roses.. Do you think Ciara would have sold more tickets than Ashanti if she was chosen as a replacement for Teyana?

  • LoveLies79

    Your comment made laugh so much ???? I was thinking the same thing!

  • Zedian Queen

    Hater. Rihanna cant sing...Janet cant sing yet they are BIG. WHY you ask, becacuse they have stage presence and can perform live and entertain. Can you do that? SMH

  • Zedian Queen

    Beyonce stole alot of her moves from other artist. Go watch Tina Turner, and no BEY will never be micheal or tina but she tries to emulate. Everyone copies one another DUUUUH its been like that since the beginning of time but yall wanna act like Beyonce doesnt copy...miss me with that Beyonce worshiping BS

  • Tell the truth

    Thick is in ? Stop body shaming

  • ALLMINE?

    Her singing "Tone" Is terrible. Janet has a great tone so does Rihanna and sade..

  • Zedian Queen

    sounds like its all a matter of personal opinion.

  • Tell the truth

    This is ? I love her vibe ??

  • Dahl

    Of course ? Ashanti can’t sing OR dance...

  • Dahl

    I like it

  • 1BlueStar

    6 seconds in and i said "nah..."

  • Logan Roberts

    I've been a fan of Ciara's since Goodies ?

  • Cali

    There is a reason CiCi promoted other body types than her toned-fit physique, stop the negativity please, they all look happy and loving life

  • gntory

    Beyonce w/a band, now Ciara w/one. Ciara will never get ahead by copying other artists...

  • gntory

    I totally agree!! W/the band & Cierror’s hair, if definitely has Beyonce all over it! Cierror just can’t find it in her spirit to be original...

  • roy

    I didnt like it ??! It was low budget, not thrilling, and filled with dance moves that everyone has seen before. I didnt even like the song.
    #istillthinkyourtalentedcici

  • leapyearpisces

    Man, this chick just having fun and wanting to spread her good energy. I'm sure she knows that she doesn't make Grammy awarding music, and I don't think she is trying to. She is living her best life and just wants to share the love.

  • Mom
  • VM

    Nice salute to the track and field legend and still the fastest woman of all time Flo-Jo.

  • JENNYJONES1

    JAMES DEBARGE IS WACK DON'T FORGET JANET WAS MARRIED B4 AND HAD A SECRET CHILD AND HER NEW HUSBAND IS CRAZY EVEN IF HIS 'FATHER' IS A BILLIONAIRE WHICH IS WHY SHE'S DIVORCING HIM. MONEY DOESN'T MAKE U A GREAT PERSON JUST LOOK AT SO CALL BILLIONAIRE DONALD TRUMP .........JENNY JONES!!!!

  • Queen B

    Im too hyped on the song but i love the positive messages

  • What???

    There’s nothing like finding a sucka to take care of another man’s sperm walkin around the house. I guess that’s what she means by level up.

  • missmiami305

    Just can’t get into her music. Level Up was a yawn and I assume this is too. All of her music sounds the same. Very one dimensional......Cici ain’t fooling me.

  • Malcom Flex

    2 roses out of 5. More watered down Beyonce.

  • Diva_woman

    I’m so proud of this girl like I know her lol

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    I like it...I can dance to it, clean to it and ride to it. Ciara knows how to stay in her lane and she looks damn good too

  • Chapter29Chick

    Ciara and i share the same bday, 10/25 ouuuhhhh [in my cardi b voice] , i feel like i understand her music on a different level, level up is both my daughter & i's favorite, being a scorpio/libra makes you want to motivate and inspire others to be the best version of themselves.

  • Chapter29Chick

    Totally agreed, Ciara is underrated by a bunch of underrated people
