Crunk&B Queen Ciara is consistently slept on, even though she has got to be one of- if not THE- best female performer out there right now. Part of the problem, other than people perceiving her voice as being "weak" (which I don't agree with), has to be the inconsistent material she keeps coming with.
This era seems to be the most unfocused to date, with the dancing Diva grasping at previous sounds to try and regain relevance. It's a strategy that clearly isn't working! CiCi needs to stop looking backwards for inspiration and instead be pushing forwards, setting new trends with her music and choreography, because she is more than capable of leading.
I know that reads like a rant and that it's unfair to tack it on to the great performances of I'm Out and Body Party, but I don't post enough on Ciara- entirely my fault- to have been able to note my thoughts elsewhere. Still, she brought the Goodies to the stage last night and even if she was lipping (the vocal sounded way too consistent), I can't hate because that choreography was on point!
