Ciara Goodies | Ciara Hip Hop
She graduated from Riverdale High School in Riverdale, Georgia in 2003. She was signed by LaFace Records executive, L.A. Reid, whom she was introduced to by Jazze Pha. Ciara started production on her debut album later that year. She wrote a demo with record producer, Sean Garrett in early 2004 , which came to the attention of Lil Jon and became her debut single “Goodies”. Later Lil Jon stated that he knew it would be big seeing how it sounded similar to Usher’s international hit, “Yeah!.
On September 28, 2004 she released her debut album Goodies. The album was performed the first time at number three on the U.S. Billboard 200, selling 124,750 copies in its initial week and topped the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. After the release of the album, she was hailed as the “First Lady of Crunk&B”.
Goodies had a seventy-one-week run on the Billboard 200, and on October 10, 2006 it was certified three times-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America . As of June 2010 the album has sold nearly 3 million copies in the United States . Charting at twenty-two on the Canadian Albums Chart, the album was certified Platinum by the Canadian Recording Industry Association. It charted at twenty-six on the UK Albums Chart, and spent twenty weeks on the chart. By British Phonographic Industry it was certified Silver, remaining to be Ciara’s sole certified album in the UK.
On June 8, 2004 Goodies’ lead single, the title track, featuring Petey Pablo, was released. Conceived as a crunk female counterpart to Usher’s “Yeah!”, the lyrical content goes against the grain, speaking of abstinence, rejecting advances because “the goodies will stay in the jar.”
Critics hailed it as an “anthem of the summer” and one of the best singles of the year, complementing its dance-feel and beat, and the irony of the “clever” lyrics. The single performed well worldwide, topping the charts in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom, and charting in the top ten of other charts, receiving Platinum certification in the United States. “1, 2 Step” featuring Missy Elliott was released as the album’s second single.
The song peaked in the top ten of many countries, topping the charts in Canada, and went on to become Platinum or Gold in many countries. “Oh” featuring Ludacris was released as the third single on March 5, 2005. The song performed well worldwide, appearing in the top ten of seven charts, and certified either Platinum or Gold in multiple regions.
Following the success of the album, Ciara released a CD/DVD entitled Goodies: The Videos & More in the United States on July 12, 2005 which featured remixes to “1, 2 Step” and “Oh”, as well as two new songs. The release was certified platinum in the United States.

Ciara and Future were engaged in October 2013 but ended the engagement in August 2014. Together they have a son Future Zahir Wilburn who was born on May 19, 2014.Ciara and future son
She is known for her often “breathy soprano” vocals. After the release of her debut single “Goodies”, she was referred to as the Princess of Crunk&B. Allison Stewart of The Washington Post commented that she has a “reedy, agile voice, capable of conveying the only three emotions (sexy, sassy, sad) an R&B singer needs.
Randall Roberts of the Los Angeles Times said that she “has been the most synthetic of the R&B divas over the past decade, an electro-leaning vocalist whose instrumental palate has heavily favored stark 808 beats, sassy and seductive vocal lines.”
During reviewing her second album Ciara: The Evolution, Jody Rosen of Entertainment Weekly wrote: “Ciara’s comfort with rave-inspired beats sets her apart from Cassie, Amerie, Rihanna, and other would-Beyoncés…singing is nimble throughout: She whispers, coos, wails, and reels off speedy syncopations worthy of Beyoncé herself.”
Fantasy Ride her third album, saw the singer showcasing a new pop and dance direction. Her music is generally contemporary R&B, but it also incorporates other genres including hip hop, crunk, dance-pop, electropop and funk. Critics have described her singles “Goodies”, “1, 2 Step”, “Get Up”, and “Go Girl” as club bangers.
MTO NEWS earlier reported that Ciara and husband Russell Wilson are pregnant again. This was just a rumor. While Ciara isn’t likely pregnant now, she has stated that she desires to give son Future Zahir, and daughter Sienna Princess, a younger brother or sister after she gets off the road.
She stands at a height of 1.7m.
