Ciara Reveals Release Date for Upcoming Album ‘Jackie,’ Tour Venues Announced

After revealing the cover earlier this week, Ciara’s now revealed the release date for her sixth studio album Jackie; in one month, on May 4, Jackie will arrive.

The opus is named after her mother and headed by the single “I Bet” which chronicles her painful break up with ex-fiance, rapper Future, with whom they share a 10-month-old son, Future Zahir.

“I can now see the world through her eyes, and I know what it’s like to be a mom,” she told Extra about her upcoming album, which is named after her mom. "I am a mini Jackie and it’s that simple."
