“Daze In Confused” interviewed CiCi when she was in London in January this year. She talked about new album “One Woman Army”, working with Future, “Basic Instinct” and more. Interesting read!
Dazed: During the campaign for your Album Basic Instinct in 2011, You wrote an open letter to your fans asking LAFACE to release you from your contract, saying "I spent more then $100,000 out of my pocket on the Gimme Dat Video to bring my vision to it and still no label support"
Ciara: "It was over $200,000 I spent on promotion on myself. I love what I do but….it’s hard when you don’t see eye to eye with the team that you’re working with and our creative chemistry wasn’t fluid. Truthfully, the album shouldn’t have come out when it did because it wasn’t put in a position to succeed. The amount shipped to stores was very little, my fans pre-ordered albums and never got them. It was crazy. I was able to learn a lot through that experience, especially as a businesswoman. I believe in me-that’s where it starts, that’s where it stops.”
