The singer also explained the concept behind “I’m Out”: “As opposed to be down about a break-up, you celebrate what your future can be. You get excited about yourself. It’s about ladies going out, having a good time and being confident in the fact that you said ‘I’m out!’”
She also touched on the use of the n-word in her music, explaining: “As an entertainer you have fun, and it’s also about the context it’s used in because I’m an African-American woman. So I can identify with that word in different ways. In my case, I can have fun because I know where I’m coming from with it.” The interview ended on a lighter note, with Ciara doing her best Bon Qui Qui impersonation.
