Ciara Gets Subdued In Her “Speechless” Video

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’.
