Ciara Does "Paint It Black": Hear the Rolling Stones Cover

If you banked on hearing Ciara sing the Rolling Stones' "Paint It Black" today, we would like to share some of your power to see into the future. Trading the original's energetic sitar and beat, this take's got claps and orchestral and digital touches all over. 

Ciara's "Paint It Black" cover comes from the soundtrack to the upcoming Vin Diesel thriller The Last Witch Hunter.

Ciara told Rolling Stone she was honored to do her own version of the song, going on to explain:

"It was never on my radar to cover it, but when the opportunity came along, I was very thrilled, because I love what the producer Adrianne Gonzales did. The direction that she went in was actually a sound I've always wanted to play with, and it just didn't get any better than being able to cover a Rolling Stones song."

Since there's no way that's enough Ciara for you, watch these nine times the dance maestress slayed the stage and read our long interview about her latest album, Jackie.
