Most of your faves are involved with TIDAL. But what is it, exactly?

Get ready, #CSquad! Ciara laid low throughout 2014, but now the entertainer is ready to take over this year with new music. She revealed the cover art to Jackie, her forthcoming sixth studio LP, today (March 31) on Instagram.

The photo finds CiCi channeling her inner Janet Jackson, as she is shown topless while rocking ripped blue jeans and flowing dark locks. The artwork was shot by Francesco Carrozzini, with the creative director being Vogue Italia editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani.

As for the tour? It will mark the singer’s first one in six years! The first round kicks off on May 3 in Chicago, and hits cities like Boston, NYC and Miami before wrapping up on May 31 in San Francisco. More dates will be added soon.

“I Bet” is the first taste we’e received of Ciara’s upcoming LP thus far, which has caused some unexpected controversy — courtesy of Jermaine Dupri. Look out for Jackie when it releases this May via Epic Records, and it is also available for pre-order on Ciara’s official website. View the tour dates, along with the full Jackie album art, down below!
