Single Review: Ciara, ‘Dance Like We’re Making Love’

ciara-singaporeCiara is back with a new single titled ‘Dance Like We’re Making Love’ off her forthcoming sixth studio album, Jackie. Based off the first single, ‘I Bet,’ I expect a few more heart wrenching tracks after her public breakup with ex-fiance and baby father, Future. As for a follow-up single to that track this one is nothing but good vibes.

There’s nothing better than a feel good track and this is definitely one. I love the music and the lyrics are sleek and sexy, but not too much. It’s great to twist and work words to have a particular meaning, but not be vulgar. This song does that. She sings about dancing with her partner and hint here and hint there, but nothing explicit. It’s way more toned down than ‘Body Party.’

Vocally she sounds great as she’s not straining to reach any high notes. There’s been times when she’s sang certain notes and it was a raspy high pitch, but the alto sound works well for her. I really love how she sounds on this track and the hook is amazing. A hook is what makes the song catchy and is likely what you’ll likely remember as a listener. For me I can’t get the hook out of my head. It’s simple, but the way she sings it and stretches out the word “love” adds to the catchiness of it.

The music was not overpowering and again I can’t stress how good of a vibe it was. This is definitely a track that’s on my current rotation and a sure favorite. There’s not many current songs that I can listen to on rotation, but this one is amazing. The video for this is what I’m looking most forward to. She could do the story line vibe or keep the simple silhouette and dance around. Either way, I’m excited to see it. Kudos to Ciara on this one. I hope it makes its way to the airwaves sooner rather than later.

I’m looking forward to Ciara’s upcoming album as opposed to her last self-titled effort. The problem with that album was that ‘Body Party’ had put such high standards on the project along with her public relationship to Future that anything released after that didn’t match that buzz. Her relationship really overshadowed her album, but her she is with another buzz worthy single, a breakup that can lead to great music, and a beautiful baby boy. Her album drops this Monday (5/4) so I can’t wait to hear what’s next.
