Ciara Preps New Album With The Dream & Tricky Stewert

Ciara has been keeping a very very VERY low profile lately. Rumored to be working on a re-release for Fantasy Ride, but it has been exclusively revealed that Ciara is working on a NEW album. And is set to be released early next year and it's been produced by The Dream & Tricky Stewert. Peep the report from below..

Christopher “Tricky” Stewart and his songwriting partner The-Dream have been secretly spending the summer in the studio producing the entire follow-up to Ciara’s Fantasy Ride. Stewart broke the news to in an exclusive interview. “We’re doing the whole project,” he reveals. “We’re pretty good into it at this point. We’re about 14 songs deep right now.”

The 23-year-old ATLien relocated to the West Coast to work on the album with Tricky and Dream, who crafted “High Price” and “Like a Surgeon” off this year’s Fantasy Ride. “She came out to L.A. to work with us. We’re out here making this record ’cause it feels good and the vibe is good,” says the Grammy-winning producer.

The as-yet-untitled effort will feature danceable tracks that have become Ciara’s signature. “This record obviously is gonna have tempo to it, but I think it’s gonna have even more substance than the last record,” Tricky discloses. “She dances and we always want to bring out what she does that other people don’t.”

Although Fantasy Ride boasted collaborations with a who’s who of the industry including Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown, and Ludacris, the “Love Sex Magic” singer will be riding solo this time. “This album we wanted to take a few steps back and make it more about her, so the only feature is Dream. But the features that we do on this record will be remixes.”

The hitmaker even shared a couple song titles with “I love ‘Speechless.’ I love this record called ‘Gifted.’ Those are two of my favorites. ‘Speechless’ is the record with her and Dream together.”

While there’s still the possibility of a release by the end of the year, it’s looking like 2010 will mark Super C’s return. “It’s a little up in the air, but there’s a chance that it might come this year. That was the goal, but at the same time, we didn’t want to rush anything. I think it’s looking more like a next year thing.”

Ciara is pulling out all the stops to make this her best work yet. “Right now, she’s on her grind, coming back, trying to make a better album than she made last time and get back to that mark where everybody knew that she was in the top tier of the female business.”

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, shall we call it a comeback? Is it even remotely possible to reprise one self after such a FAILURE of an album? It's possibly. Especially if it's work by The Dream & Tricky! 14 songs DEEP! That's pretty amazing progress. I see this time around she's pulling a Beyonce & Jordin Sparks to have no features on the album. Can she do it on her own? I think she still needs a little assisitance which is why The Dream is featured on one of the songs and I'm sure that will be released as a single. I'm almost positive it will be the 1st single to get her back on track. I like Ciara as an artist, this last CD just wasn't it. I enjoyed "Goodies" & "The Evolution", but this last one just wasn't it. Seems like everyone is running to The Dream for recovery after album failure. Mariah did it, now Ciara is doing it. lol. But it doesn't work for everyone. Wishing Ciara the best.


  1. I'm really feeling that they can put her back on track after her last two albums didn't do so well, this is going to be the album make or break her career, she betta go hard.

  2. ooops dont let me friend read that. He tried to go hard on me, I had to put him in his place! Basicaly told me fantasy ride wasnt a flop so sop going hard. I was boy, Ciara was in a "FANTASY" of her own, rode that "RIDE" by herself and CRASHED!
