Ciara Gets Subdued In Her “Speechless” Video

By: Becky Bain / September 29, 2010

Ciara keeps it simple in the video for her love jam “Speechless”, forgoing any sexual innuendo or pelvic gyrations apparent in her previous vids. The R&B singer actually reminds us of early Janet Jackson here (think “Again” or “Love Will Never Do”), especially with her oversized top and comfy jeans. It’s a safe video, for sure, but oh-so nice to look at. Watch below.

The clip is mostly shot in elegent black-and-white photgraphy, which goes hand and hand with the Basic Instinct single’s striking cover art.

Ciara — “Speechless”

Okay, we miss the hip thrusts. But there’s a time and place for that, and this dim, empty mansion with an incredible view is more suited to emoting, not unbridled booty-shakin’.
