Ciara: Why I Dedicated My Entire New Album to My Mom, Jackie

Ciara: Why I Dedicated My Entire New Album to My Mom, Jackie

FUSE TV - Ciara: Why I Dedicated My Entire New Album to My Mom, Jackie

Some musicians might record the one-off track dedicated to their mom, but Ciara based an entire record off hers. Daughter to Jackie Harris and a new mother herself this year, the R&B/pop star decided everything from her sixth studio album's vibe to its subject matter all coincided and related back to no one better but her mama.

And the stars aligned for release week: Not only did the new LP Jackie drop the Monday before Mother's Day, it also hit stores just two days before Mrs. Harris' birthday. 

To celebrate Mother's Day and Ci's first time observing the holiday as a mom, Fuse had a special conversation where we got in-depth with the singer about her record's inspiration, what she's learned as a mother, childhood memories and how the songs on Jackie (yep, even the sexy ones) all relate back to Mom.
