September 28 marks 15 years since the 2004 release of Ciara's debut album, Goodies, and the songs that skyrocketed her into superstardom.
The songstress sat down to discuss the album, the breakout tracks and becoming the first woman to take on the Crunk 'n' B genre spearheaded by Lil Jon. "What Lil Jon did was historic for music, because he came in with the fresh sound and he went against the grain of what traditional pop was at that time period," she explained. "And I was the first girl to do it. So I was really proud of that and will forever be proud of it."
Of the title track, Ciara said she was in a fast food restaurant in Atlanta the first time she heard it on the radio, remembering that it was a moment in which "my dream came true in every way I could have imagined and more."
