With her fifth studio album, One Woman Army, set for a December release, attempts to generate a buzz have kicked in. Although "Sorry" had been announced as the album's lead single, a different song, "Sophomore," has made its way to the internet thanks to a leak from DJ Orator. If this is any indication of what's to come on One Woman Army, then she may need to head back to the drawing board. Banking on the sex appeal that made songs such as "Promise" shoot straight up the charts, "Sophomore" is nothing to write home about. With a Soundz-produced beat that sounds like a throwaway from one of her previous albums, Ciara boasts about the softness of her skin, her bed and her booty (her words, not mine). She retreads the same old ground she's been rocking with since her second album. Though the old "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" adage works for some artists some times, it's not where it's at for CiCi. We already know she can vamp it up, but it'd be nice to see her pull some new tricks out the bag.
Get ready to twerk it.
