MVRemix: I know you must have a lot of things planned for 2007 what’s your New Year’s resolution?
Ciara: I haven’t really thought about it. I’m pretty sure one of my goals for next year is to be more focused and make sure I meet my deadlines and really stay on it. I have a lot of business goals and they are possible I just have to really stay on it.
MVRemix: I’ve noticed on this album you have taken on a more sexier tone, was that all on you or did you have others influence you to take that approach?
Ciara: Honestly, I’m just being me, beginning with this album, and the title of my album I felt that it was perfect because I had evolved as an artist and a women. In this case a lot of the things you have seen me do are just natural changes, I’m just growing. Even with the â€œGet Upâ€ video that was something different. Even with the â€œPromiseâ€ video when I was thinking about the making the first scene from my video I thought this was perfect, the track alone just makes a statement. The record is different then what people are used to hearing from me. This record does have a more mature sound, I guess you can say sexier, but honestly I’m just being me and doing what comes to me naturally.
