CiCi is back on the block, and honey it is hot. Overnight, Ciara dropped her latest single and video “Level Up.” In the video Ciara brought that old thing back. She gave us intensive choreography, throughout the entire video.
The video was produced by Ciara herself, and Parris Goebel, also known as Parri$. Dancers featured in the video were the ReQuest Dance Crew.
This is Ciara’s first single since her 2015 “Jackie” album.
Credit was given to DJ Telly Tellz, alongside his viral track “F#ck It Up” that came out back in 2015. The “F#ck It Up” song became viral after a challenge was started. It is still pretty relevant on today.
The title of the song is so clever, some may even think it is referenced to how CiCi really feels about her new life. Back in January CiCi took to her Instagram to repost a video clip from John Gray’s sermon; “He who finds a wife.”
According to Gray’s sermon, too many women want to be married, but yet are walking in the spirit of ‘girlfriend.’ After reposting the repost from Gray’s sermon, Ciara when on to make a separate post saying, “I was once that girls wanting to be loved a certain way but making all the wrong choices. I found myself at my lowest moment. I was a single mom sitting at home, and I then realized that the perfect love I was looking for was how God loves me, how he wants me to be loved, and who he was calling me to be as a mom and a woman… That’s when I realized married or not married… I needed to love myself. #LevelUp”
In Ciara’s new song, she came in with a hot verse saying:
Them old mistakes are gone, I won’t do them no more
That’s old news, there’s new news, I done did that before
I turned them into something, my comeback on one hunnid’
Less talking, more action, you just gon’ CiCi coming
I just keep elevating, no losses, just upgrading
My lessons, made blessings, I turned that into money
Thank God I never settled, this view is so much better
I’m chilling, I’m winning, like on another level
It is quite clear that CiCi did not want anyone to misinterpret her message about leveling up. She has leveled up her life in that past year. Married to NFL player Russell Wilson, had a beautiful baby girl, and now a hot single with a hot body.
Ciara has yet to give out a release date for her album, however it is safe to say that Ciara is back.
