We first came to know this young beauty when she came onto the scene in 2004 as Jazzie Pha and Missy Elliot’s sweet singing, hip hop dancing protégé whose hits like “Goodies”, “1, 2 Step” and “Oh” made her a household name. In more recent times, Ciara has released her 6th studio album entitled Jackie which she describes as her best work yet. Named after her mother, Ciara has stated that the album is one of her most vulnerable and best projects yet and it allows her fans to follow her journey of heartbreak and love.
