Ciara Hits Back at Haters With ‘Shut Em Up’

It seems Ciara is tired of talking so she’s letting her work speak to the haters. In the brand new track titled “Shut ‘Em Up,” the R&B Princess croons about ignoring all of the Hollywood rumors and slamming the haters for continuing to go after her. “They say I’m Holly wood, they think that I’m too good…I’m just handling my business, where I’m living it really don’t make a difference,” Ciara croons in a part of the lyrics, adding, “I don’t have to respond to you, I don’t gotta prove nothing to you.” Ciara’s fourth studio album, “Basic Instinct” will drop on November 30, coincidentally, her rumored nemesis Keri Hilson is scheduled to drop her own record “No Boys Allowed” on the same day. A reported feud with Ciara and Keri Hilson came about in early 2009 after Hilson allegedly took aim at her on the “Turnin’ Me On” remix. Regarding the issue, Ciara recently told the Boom Box, “I’m so in a different space mentally I can’t even bring myself to do that. It’s not [important] to me. There’s just so much stuff to get out of life than that. There’s so much more for me to accomplish in my career. Personally, I’ve decided that it doesn’t make sense to do that.” “I’m very secure in my place and what I’ve done over the years,” she went on. “I’m just trying to be as successful as possible. I do believe that thinking about stuff like that and giving things like that energy — it can get in the way. It’s not necessary. That’s just my point of view.” Listen to Ciara’s “Shut ‘Em Up,” here on Singersroom. What do you think about Ciara and Keri Hilson releasing their albums on the same day?
