MP3: Ciara – “Livin’ It Up”

August 20, 2012 1 comment

After the poor reception to her intended first single, “Sweat,” it seems Ciara has gone back to the drawing board. The Atlanta songstress has decided to revisit her pop aspirations with a new track. Titled “Livin’ It Up,” the breezy midtempo sees Ci bragging about “living life to the fullest” and “breaking all the rules.”

Check out the new track below:

Ciara – Livin’ It Up

The song isn’t bad, but it certainly isn’t what I expected to hear from Ciara. It’s obvious her team has gone into damage control and is desperately chasing a hit, and this song has that potential. But I’m curious about the direction of her album as she certainly needs to bring the fire if she hopes to rebound with this album. Here’s hoping this single sticks so we can get some live performances.
