Last night, Ciara destroyed the BET Awards stage with her performance of current singles, “I’m Out” and “Body Party,” receiving a standing ovation at the end. Ciara also premiered the video for the single “I’m Out”, which features a monster verse from Nicki Minaj. And, the video does not disappoint. Drawing inspiration from Michael Jackson’s “Scream,” Nicki and Ciara synchronize twerk in one scene, while Ciara and her dancers do splits and dance like there’s no tomorrow in another. There’s also plenty of high fashion moments. Check out the crazy video below:
Epic video! One thing you can’t take away from Ciara, she’s an amazing performer: both on-stage, and in her videos. She never disappoints when it comes to her craft; it’s usually just that her label doesn’t promote her properly. But now, with Epic Records, Ciara is back to where she should have been in 2009, on top. “Body Party” is currently #1 on urban radio, and after last night’s performance, it will be gaining even more airplay, and digital downloads, making it push even higher than its already top 40 Billboard Hot 100 position.
Ciara’s self-titled 5th album is due out next week, July 9th. To promote the album, Ciara will be doing Chelsea Lately and Jimmy Kimmel tomorrow, followed by Good Morning America, Jimmy Fallon, Live with Kelly & Michael, and The Wendy Williams Show in the coming week. Her album release week, July 8th – July 12th, Ciara will be performing EVERY SINGLE DAY on BET’s 106 & Park. Now THIS is how you do promo!
