Ciara recruited marching band percussion and brass for her vibrant new single “Dose.” The song plays like a motivational speech aimed at listeners and the vocalist herself. “I’m a groundbreaking woman/ I get loud when I wanna/ Put me down, I’ll go harder,” she sings over brass blasts and rattling snares. “When you fall, fall, just get back up again.”
“Dose” follows Ciara’s July-issued track “Level Up,” which she paired with a dance-heavy video and a remix featuring Missy Elliott. While the singer has yet to detail her upcoming seventh album, she told ABC in March that she started working on the LP in 2017.
“I’m super, super excited about my album,” she said of the project, which follows 2015’s Jackie. “I’ve been having so much fun working on it. I actually stated recording a little bit of it before I gave birth to Sienna so that was really fun; dancing around with my big belly in the studio. But I’ve been working on it for a little while, and it’s really coming together.”
Ciara is set to open several dates on the final leg of Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic tour. She will join the “Uptown Funk” singer on six shows, spanning September 22nd in Toronto, Ontario to October 2nd in Newark, New Jersey.
