Ciara is revealing her hurt and new outlook on life in her newly released single, "I Bet," from her forthcoming album, Jackie.
On the mid-tempo offering, produced by Harmony Samuels, the 29-year-old blasts her ex-lover for doing her wrong, which can only make us ponder that the record was inspired by her ex-fiancé Future. The former couple called off their engagement on reports of infidelity by the rapper, who has several baby mommas.
Nonetheless, with the help of Rock City’s Theron Thomas, Ciara taps into her nostalgic sound of her early days, by delivering a warm and exhilarate song, which shows her strength after being hurt.
Check out some lyrics from “I Bet”:
“I bet you start needing me/ As soon as you see me with someone else/ Somebody other than you.”
“You know that it hurts your pride / But you thought the grass was greener on the other side.”
“So you can keep that bitch over there, giving me the ugly stare / The one with the silicone ass and the Brazilian hair.”
Ciara says the record is not just about her, telling Billboard, "I imagine this song will be very meaningful for a lot of people. It is much bigger than any one person’s experience."
