Ciara Says She’s Already Working On Her Sixth Album

By: Sam Lansky / December 23, 2013

Call ‘em, Cici. After her fifth studio album, this year’s Ciara, turned out to be the best of Ciara‘s career (and then underperformed outrageously), the R&B siren is already back in the studio cooking up her upcoming sixth LP — as she admitted in a cover story with Genlux (?) magazine.

“I’m in the process of making my new album,” she said. “My inspiration is life and reality. It’s important to express myself musically. I am so connected to who I am now, and I want to share pieces of myself through my songs. It’s like having a conversation with the world.”

There’s no rhyme or reason to why Ciara wasn’t a massive album — it was packed with radio candy, the critics adored it (see how many best-of-year lists “Body Party” is making), she promoted it efficiently, and I’d even argue that the spare, sultry R&B vibe of tracks like “Sophomore” and “DUI” bears much in common with some of the best tracks on Beyonce. Yup, I said it.

Here’s hoping that her next effort brings CiCi some justice.
