Since the release of 2010's "Basic Instinct," Ciara has become noticeably more comfortable in her own skin. The singer is ready to let us in on her fifth studio album, "One Woman Army," starting with her latest single, "Body Party."
Ciara slows it down on the Mike WiLL Made It-produced song, exclusively premiered on The Juice. "My body is your party, baby/ Nobody's invited but you baby/ I can do it slow now, tell me what you want," she seductively croons.
Aside from the infuence of Ghost Town DJ's "My Boo," what makes the single sweeter? Ciara has teamed up with her boyfriend, Future, for "Body Party." The rapper, who co-wrote the song with his main squeeze and Mike WiLL, can be heard throughout with his "ooh's" and ad-libs. "If you listen closely, you can [hear him]," she told The Juice while giggling.
"Let's just say that this record came out of a very sincere place," Ciara says of working with Future. "I think when things just organically feel right, naturally good things come from it."
"He' s such an amazing, creative person," she continues. "I can be very creatively expressive myself, but there's nothing like being able to work with someone that can bring a new flavor. What I like about [working with] him, it's almost like I got to learn more things about myself."
"One Woman Army," to be released in June, will feature production by Rodney Jerkins, The Underdogs, Rock City, Mike WiLL Made It and feature Nicki Minaj and Rick Ross, as well as a wholly content singer at its center.
"I can't avoid being inspired by what's going on in my life. To be honest, I'm in a very happy place," Ciara says.
