Although Ciara is head over heels for her it rapper beau Future she takes a moment to show some love to the less fortunate ladies who are going through a breakup on the new track “Im Out.” On the uplifting club-banger which features colorful raptress Nicki Minaj, CiCi chants “If you know that you better than the new girl that he on, go head and tell him now you gon’ miss me when I’m gone, I’m out.” Presumably the follow-up to “Body Party” which currently sits at #8 on the R&B/Hip Hop Chart and #35 on the Hot 100, it is questionable whether “I’m Out” has what it takes to keep up the momentum that is needed to make its self-titled parent album a success come July 9th. Sonically not too far off from the dud of a first single that was “Sweat” (later relegated to buzz single status), let’s hope that the Ms. Minaj feature does the trick as we’d like to see ol’ CiCi win again. The question is, does she?
