R&B singer Ciara is set to drop a new album this summer and even though she’s got lots of new music to talk about, lately she’s been making headlines more so for her relationship with Future and beef with Rihanna. Ciara also just confirmed that she has changed the name of her upcoming album from One Woman Army to Ciara, and she’s even decided against putting two of her recent singles “Sorry” and “Got Me Good” on the album. The singer is doing lots of press to promote the album and she recently stopped by Hot 97 to chat it up about her new music, Future, Rihanna. and Beyonce.

On why she decided to go public with her relationship with Future and be more open about the romance, she says:

“I felt comfortable in this situation. I feel like you have to be comfortable because when you do step outside, you put yourself in a situation for everyone to have an opinion.”


On her ongoing beef with Rihanna, Ciara seems to feel that it’s not enough brown girls doing music for them to be beefing with one another. She says:

“I don’t know what she’s on. Whatever she’s on, she can have it. I’m so cool, I’m so in my zone right now. It’s not that many of us doing what we do. It shouldn’t be anything but love. I feel like all of us and what we do is different anyway, so I could’t understand what the need to create drama would be, but I wish her well.”


And when it comes to beefing with brown girls on top of the music game, Ciara seems to think Beyonce should be respected by all of her peers because she works so hard for her success:

“I have a lot of respect for Beyoncé. I think she’s just an amazing performer. She’s a beast. She’s worked hard to be where she is right now and she deserves all the respect.”


Ciara also explains again why she has decided to change the name of her upcoming album:

“As we were moving along, I started to take a different creative turn. I found some new inspiration along the way, so the One Woman Army movement still exists and it’s still a part of who I am because it represents my strength and my struggles and my journey. However, the best way for me to title the record at the time period or at this moment was simply Ciara.”


Ciara’s album is set to drop July 9. Check out the interview below:

      Right! She even had the balls to go up against Rihanna’s ratchet azz. I might have to support her this time around.

          The navy? Why are y’all even still on duty when your fave can’t even tour without canceling shows every month?

    It’s not a good sign that she has to talk about other people in her interviews. She better have a couple of hits on this album or it’s a wrap for her career. I am hoping she does well though.

      LA Reid is going to make sure he will earn a good ROI with Ciara & Future.
