New Video: Ciara – ‘Got Me Good’

After sharing a trailer for her “Got Me Good” video, Ciara finally releases the full version. The video, directed by Joseph Kahn, was filmed on a desert road in California. Ciara, with the help of dancers including  America’s Best Dance Crew’s 8 Flavahz, brought us a high energy, dance filled video to coincide with the uptempo track.

“My back is achin’, my bra too tight, my booty shakin’ from the left to the right,” Ciara chants. The electrifying video shows Ciara and her dancers dancing in the desert from day to sunset.

Ciara recently spoke to VEVO, where Jim Macnie asked her to name a couple of tracks that she knew were on target when she cut them in the studio. Of course, Ciara spoke about her latest single:

“Got Me Good” definitely made me feel that way. I remember jumping on a stool in the middle of that one. [Producer] Rodney Jerkins has a video of me actually reacting to it. I literally jumped on this stool, probably three feet wide, dancing like I was in a club somewhere. And Rodney had these cool lights going. Everything felt right. He was asking me about the bass. I said I wanted some 808s, and I wanted the beat to move a certain way, and he started playing the keyboards, and we’re vibing, and before you know I’m jumping on a stool.

“Got Me Good” is the follow-up single to Ciara’s “Sorry” single. Both songs are featured on her upcoming album, One Woman Army, due this winter.

BAYLi Sets August Release Date for ‘SUMMER’ Mixtape

Before the season changes, BAYLi wants to contribute a SUMMER soundtrack. The emerging singer has confirmed her debut mixtape — featuring already shared songs “Underneath” and “MYOB: Or Whatever” — will be heard in full on August 31. She also reveals SUMMER’s tracklist.

For the project, BAYLi will touch on break-ups, love, struggles of being an upcoming artist, parties, and facing deep-rooted insecurities.

Along with the SUMMER rollout, BAYLi drops a video for her new song titled “Out of Love.” In the quirky video, the singer hates being the third wheel and decides to break up a few loves scenes.

“It seems like no one wants to give me any love,” BAYLi says about the new video and song. “Everyone is too distracted by what’s on their phones or their work, and everyone else is taken. I want viewers to just know that even though the world feels like it’s falling apart, love yourself and give love!”

Watch the rom-com video for “Out of Love” below.

SUMMER mixtape track list:

1. “MYOB: Or Whatever”
2. “Mr. & Mrs. Smith”
3. “Problem”
4. “Right Now”
5. “U&I”
6. “Underneath”
7. “Kid”
8. “Out For Love”

DAWN Performs for NPR’s ‘Tiny Desk’ Series

Surprise, surprise. As DAWN readies her album slayage, she takes her gifted talents to the NPR office for its Tiny Desk series.

Joined by two harmonizing vocalists and a two-man band, the New Orleans performer opened her set with “Waves,” a powerful anthem about gender equal pay.

After showing off her cocky ‘waves,’ the singer moved into “Vines (Interlude)” and “Lazarus” from her album, Redemption, released in 2016.

Before diving into “Lazarus,” DAWN commented on being labeled an “alternative R&B” artist. “I find it interesting when you’re a brown or black girl and you try to do something beyond R&B and hip-hop, it’s not always cool. They don’t get it. They think you’re trying too hard. They don’t know where to place you. I wrote this record because sometimes you’re misunderstood. You know exactly who you are, but everyone else can’t quite figure you out. I wrote this record for that person.”

DAWN recently released two new songs “Oh Lord” and “So Good.
