Recently, Ciara took to her Instagram account to share some exciting news.
The “I Bet” songstress uploaded a video that showcased a clip from her latest music video for “Thinking Bout You,” with her name written in bright neon lights over the top.
“So excited to announce I’m performing “Thinkin Bout You” LIVE for the first time at the @BBMAs, Wednesday, May 1 on NBC. #BBMAs!! (There’s no emoji for my feelings!! Aahh!:) #LetsGetIt,” she captioned the upload.
The new single is taken from her seventh studio album, Beauty Marks, which will release next month. To promote the album, Cici has created a movement for her fans to join in on. She wants them to join her in the “#BeautyMarks” journey and upload their rawest selfies to her website. This movement was kickstarted after she posted a “vulnerable” selfie to her page, which showed the star posing makeup and extension-free, per The Inquisitr.
So far, Ciara has released six studio albums — Goodies, Ciara: The Evolution, Fantasy Ride, Basic Instinct, Ciara, and Jackie.
The album cover for her upcoming release is a work of art. Ciara appears to be covered in body paint and completely nude, which The Inquisitr recently revealed. The album will consist of 11 tracks and includes collaborations with Macklemore, Tekno, and Kelly Rowland.
