Ciara already had a certifiable summer hit in 2013 with “Body Party,” out in March this year. Now she’s got a bangin’ follow-up with Nicki Minaj on “I’m Out,” with an equally charged music video.
The two R&B and hip-hop stars start out in all-white (is it bad when I’m like, for once, “Wow, look at Minaj wearing a full outfit complete with shirt and pants?”) and then diverge into underground dance party, where Ciara dances better than you’d ever dream of dancing. Minaj indulges in her slow flow before launching into warp speed, while Ciara’s kiss-off coverage is topped with product placements. Minaj then throws on her Lil Wayne style around 3:30 and here you are dialing the salon for a head of hair like that.
The siren means start clapping, and that text from your old beau means bad news. Easy to follow, easy to toast.
“I’m Out” is on Ciara’s self-titled album, due on Friday (!), July 5.
