Ciara is the second coming of Janet Jackson. Period
Ciara has much to celebrate on her 27th birthday. Throughout her tumultuous fantasy ride of a career, the Atlanta beaut has not only unearthed the fountain of youth, but she hasn’t compromised her integrity for pop stardom. Delivering intensive choreography through cinematic visuals has been a consistent gift from her, and its worthy of celebration.
Teaming up with Joseph Kahn for One Woman Army’s latest visual installment, “Got Me Good,” proved favorable for the electrifying performer. The video sees Ciara strolling down a desert road, both on feet and in her Jeep, with a mysterious dancer. Soon after, she’s joined by crews of dancers for some duck-face-inducing footwork, crisp choreo and signature Jackson moves.
Despite her consistency as a performer, the catchy dance anthem will most likely underperform on the charts. Like the high-octane “Sweat” and sultry “Sorry,” “Got Me Good” is what we’ve come to expect from Ciara (see “Lose Control” and “Work”). In order to progress as an artist, quite frankly, she will need to experiment with a more inventive, yet broader, sound.
Should Ciara’s lack of lyrical depth and usage of innovative instrumentation yield abhorrence? Certainly not. There isn’t a single active entertainer that can execute what she does, as effortless as she does.

Bonus+Update: Ciara gave an awesome performance of “Sorry” and “Got Me Good” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.
