Ciara's New Song With Missy Elliott & Pitbull Is Your Weekend Anthem

Weekend anthem alert, y'all! 

Ciara's new album Jackie doesn't drop until next week, but one of its tracks has surfaced and is the perfect song to kick off your Friday night. "That's How I'm Feelin'" sees Ci team up with her her "1, 2 Step" collaborator Missy Elliott and hitmaker Pitbull for what very well might be the hottest joint on the record.

A bouncy, synth-pop beat backs Ciara's flirty coos on the verses and her chant-like chorus, moving from "I ain't easy but I might just go with you tonight / Baby, that's how I'm feelin'' to "Boy do you like that? I-I-I know that you like that!" Play this track while you're getting ready to go out and you and your crew will be shouting the lyrics at each other before the song's end. Then you can use the teasing lyrics to lure in a hottie at the club. Win/win!

The guest MCs pop in halfway through for cameos; Pitbull offers the somewhat cringeworthy line "I wanna please you baby / Explore your private parts in a private place," but then Missy steals the show with a blazing verse, boasting "'Cause me and CiCi, H-O-T emoji / You know me, when I get toasty, it's on, B."

"That's How I'm Feelin'" sounds like guaranteed radio hit for summer. While the sensual "Dance Like We're Making Love" has been announced as Jackie's second single, this new joint screams third single and could certainly get the singer back on Top 40 radio.
