Ciara is all set to drop her next studio album “Ciara” next month, and a lot of pressure appears to be placed on the singer to somehow manage to make the album her official comeback to the music game considering her last two albums didn’t perform so well commercially. And things don’t look so bleak for Ciara this time around because her most recent single “Body Party” is a smash hit, especially on the R&B charts. In fact, the single made it on the top 30 Billboard Hot 100 chart, and Ciara hasn’t had that kind of reaction to any of her singles in years. So while things seem to be looking up and her pre-sale numbers for the album look stellar on iTunes, Ciara still understands final numbers could still go in a direction she doesn’t want them to. In a recent interview with the Huffington Post, the singer claims she has decided to no longer worry about whether or not her album will flop when asked about it potentially not doing well:
“More than anything, I wanted people to feel something — and that’s how I feel when I listen to this album. I actually listen to this album, as a fan, and I haven’t actually listened to my music in years. After completing an album, I don’t like listening to it until I have to prepare for performances, but this album I can put on from time-to-time and mode out to it.
“I feel really good. I can rest my eyes knowing I put my all into [this album]. I had the most fun I’ve ever had making an album. I’m having fun.I’m living my life right now for me. That feels really good.”
