Ciara has announced an official release date for her upcoming album.
The singer took to Twitter to spread the good word, tweeting last night, “RT RT!! BASIC INSTINCT ALBUM RELEASE DATE!!!! AUGUST 24!!”
After her last album Fantasy Ride underperformed, her fans are hoping she comes out with something really hot this time. Let the Dream tell it, this is her last shot.
The producer, who wrote CiCi’s whole album, told Parlour Magazine, “You only get so many times to, and I won’t say fail, but not achieve. There’s an expectation of where Ciara should be in her career.”
While those comments had the web, most especially Ciara fans, up in arms, he went on to clarify that she lost her way creatively, but that he and Tricky Stewart have gotten her back on the right path with Basic Instinct. They set the tone for the album with its lead single, “Ride.”
The remix for “Ride,” featuring Andre 3000, is now available for download on iTunes.
