Ciara is taking her heartbreak and putting it to a song….And she is putting her ex on blast on “I Bet,” the first single off her upcoming sixth album Jackie.
Ciara sings about t a lover who did her wrong, much like her ex-fiancé Future. The former couple, who has an eight-month-old son together, reportedly called off their engagement after rumors of Future’s infidelity.
According to Rap-Up.com Ciara sings:
“YOU KNOW THAT IT HURTS YOUR PRIDE / BUT YOU THOUGHT THE GRASS WAS GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE.”
She also credits herself for putting him on to that new (“You actin’ like you upgraded me, I upgraded you”) and calls out his new chick. “Is that your bitch over there givin’ me the ugly stare / The one with the silicone ass and the Brazilian hair,” sings CiCi.
But despite the past, she surprisingly still has love for him. “I’m singing this song ’cause I love you… Right now it’s killing me ’cause now I have to find someone else when all I wanted was you.”
While it comes from a personal place, Ciara hopes the raw and emotional song will resonate with others. “I imagine this song will be very meaningful for a lot of people. It is much bigger than any one person’s experience,” she tells Billboard.
I actually like this song. The lyrics, the delivery, and the shade. But let’s be clear CiCi is trying to capitalize on her breakup with Future, in the end she’s crying wolf, but everyone tried to tell her.. . Dude has 5 kids with different mothers and he is not even a Muslim or Mormon. Ci needs to come harder.. Hopefully this was just a preview…..
