It’s been announced that R&B singer Ciara will release her sixth studio album later in 2015, but critics find it hard to believe that this will actually happen. When she first came on the scene back in late 2004 with the release of her first album, “Goodies,” she was hot stuff. She managed to become one of the hottest performers of the year and subsequent years with hit songs such as “1,2 Step,” and “Goodies,” and her album performed really well. The sweet girl from Austin, Texas who traveled and worked as a model much of her young life was paving her way in the music industry and it seemed that nothing would get in her way. She collaborated with big named artists such as Missy Elliot, and she was on fire. It seemed that Ciara’s albums were about to become the biggest thing in the new millennium.
It wasn’t until her second studio album “Ciara: The Evolution,” was released in 2006, however, that she saw the number one spot on the charts. The album killed; her fans loved it and critics had nothing but good vibes surrounding her musical talents and efforts. Unfortunately, it all went downhill from there for the singer. She rode high on her second album, but her third was delayed a number of times and wasn’t released until almost a year after it was originally scheduled. Her fourth and fifth albums were not well received and her fifth had a number of songs removed from the track list after they failed to perform. So you can see why there is a bit of doubt that album number six is going to do any better. We’re hoping, though, that after becoming a mother and making some life changes that she’s got a little bit more ambition to make sure this one takes off.
