Ciara Defends 'Jackie,' Says Next Album Will Be Best of her Career

FUSE TV - Ciara Defends 'Jackie,' Says Next Album Will Be Best of her Career

Ciara is not letting the sales of her 2015 Jackie album haunt her! In a new interview with Hip TV, the songstress discusses its lower-than-usual success. 

“It’s about the journey. My journey has been pretty fun. We live in a time where record sales are way different. I’m not gonna blame it on the time because I’m really proud of the album, and I feel like it was one of my best works to date," she calmly explained.

But don't hold that last statement to her, though, as the "I Bet" singer is also claiming that her follow-up album will be equally major: “I’m super, super thrilled about this next chapter and I do believe this will be my best body of work for sure. I think that my fans will be very happy with the direction that I’m going to go in.”
