Ciara is back ya’ll and looking better than ever.
In the star’s first music video since giving birth to her son Future Zahir and enduring a painful breakup, CiCi dances with herself in a ballerina inspired visual for her new track, “I Bet.”
It is often said that looking good is the best revenge after a nasty split … well Future, eat your heart out. In the five minute video, a stunning Ciara shows off her flawless legs and sexy dance moves in several cleavage baring ensembles.
On the track, which was released in January, the 29-year-old sings about her failed relationship with ex-finacé, Future.
HipHollywood caught up with the star last month during the Essence Black Women in Music event to talk about why she wanted to sing about her split on her forthcoming album, Jackie. “I just feel so many different things now with life and as a woman I feel a whole different confidence and I feel a need to express,” she said.
She added, “I think we need realness … it’s important to me that I get to express myself exactly how I want to as an artist.”

Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!
Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.
In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.
“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”
What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.
“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”
Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
