Last Spring a very pregnant, very in love Ciara told W about her upcoming album, largely inspired by then-fiancé Future. "Music is a place where we have a very strong connection,” she told the publication. “We created 'Body Party,' and that song created something else—and that’s why we’re here." The pair would go on to split after Future cheated on the R&B chanteuse, delaying her sixth studio album, Jackie, until 2015.
Today we get our first taste of the record, which by the sound of it, will to detail their very public breakup. "I Bet" showcases a self-assured Ciara working through her past relationship. If you need a new heartbreak anthem, you've found it here.
"You actin’ like you upgraded me, I upgraded you," she sings, "Is that your bitch over there givin’ me the ugly stare? / The one with the silicone ass and the Brazilian hair?" criticizing Future's other woman in a pretty venomous way. At the end, she's honest, adding, “I’m singing this song ’cause I love you / Right now it’s killing me ’cause now I have to find someone else when all I wanted was you.”
