After the 2015 release of her sixth studio album, Jackie, which included the RIAA Platinum certified single, “I Bet,” Cici is finally gearing up for the rollout of her next album.
Yesterday, she dropped her new single, “Level Up,” along with its music video. The song samples Dj Telly Tellz’s “Fuck It Up Challenge.” Standing apart from the R&B and pop mixture that was prevalent on the tracks from Jackie, “Level Up” is a return to the infectious dance-inspired sound that made Ciara famous. The track is Ciara’s first release under her new label, Warner Bros. Records, after leaving Epic Records back in 2016.
The video was both directed and choreographed by the famous Parris Goebel from New Zealand. Additionally, the video features New Zealand’s female hip-hop dance crew, ReQuest.
Take a peek at the stunning visual below:
Wow, she really slayed that choreography!
We think that she delivered and the track fits Ciara’s trademark dance style perfectly. Hopefully, her partnership with Warner Bros. will prove to be more successful than her stint with Epic. If Cici plays her cards right, “Level Up” may be the formula she needs to achieve the success of her last Top 40 hit, “Body Party.”
