In my opinion, Ciara is a great artist. Her songs like ‘1,2, Step,’ ‘Goodies,’ and ‘Like You’ topped the charts, and can still make people get up to dance and sing today.
After 17 years in the music industry, and 7 studio albums, she has left her mark, but continues to do more. As a singer, dancer, actress, model, activist, philanthropist, and most importantly, mother, Ciara is always working in one way or another. She is motivated and a hard worker. In an interview, Ciara said that she writes down her goals and does not stop until she achieves them, something she did before her debut album, Goodies, and continues to do now.
“The goals she wrote were threefold. First, she’d get discovered. Next, she’d sign a deal, make an album, and sell 3 to 4 million copies. Which she did. “I signed my first label at 16-years-old,” Ciara recounts, “put out my first album at 19, and I sold, not just 3 to 4, but 5 million records.” (Ciara’s 2004 debut, Goodies, included three number one hits: “Goodies,” “1, 2 Step,” and “Oh.”) “My third goal,” Ciara continues, “was to have longevity. It’s been 13 years since my first album release.”-Fiona Duncan, Harpers Bazaar, 2017.
Ciara is a beautiful, intelligent, and talented Black woman that came into the music industry in 2002, took it by storm, and has no plans to leave it anytime soon.
