Epic RecordsCiara can’t stop gushing about her next studio album, Jackie.
In an interview with Women’s Wear Daily, the singer revealed details about her upcoming effort. “I named the album after my mom, because I see the world through her eyes now that I’m a mom,” Ciara says. “It’s my best body of work. I’m in the most clear place in my life, and that pours into the music. I kept it small and tight in terms of producers; I wanted it to sound consistent. I worked with Dr. Luke, Polow da Don, Harmony Samuels and a few other producers.”
Ci Ci also spoke about the video for “I Bet,” which was filmed in New York City last Friday. “I did things I’ve always wanted to do in the video, style-wise and performance-wise,” she says of the upcoming visual. “I had a vision!”
Ciara says that raising her son Future Zahir Wilburn, who just turned 9 months old and is now crawling, has given her new inspiration.
“Oh, my goodness. It’s changed my life, period. My son is the greatest, sweetest gift God has given me. The word responsibility has a whole new meaning,” she explains. “My son arriving has changed how I keep pushing myself as a woman — and a businesswoman. I’m like, ‘Baby’s gotta eat!’ I hustle even harder; I have a clearer purpose in life.”
Jackie arrives this spring.
