is an American singer, songwriter, record producer and actress.
Born in Austin, Texas, she traveled around the world during her childhood, eventually moving to Atlanta, Georgia where she joined the girl group Hearsay (not to be confused with the British group Hear'Say); however, the group disbanded after having differences.
The album was certified triple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), and earned her four nominations at the 48th Annual Grammy Awards. However, it produced the international top-ten single "Love Sex Magic" featuring Justin Timberlake, which earned her a Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals.
She released her second studio album, Ciara: The Evolution, in 2006 which spawned the hit singles "Get Up", "Promise", and "Like a Boy". The following year, Ciara released her fourth studio album Basic Instinct, which was met with low sales and continued a downward trend in her commercial performance. In 2015, Ciara released her sixth album Jackie, which included the singles "I Bet" and "Dance Like We're Making Love".
Throughout the early 2000s Ciara released a slew of hits and had built a reputation for being an energetic entertainer.
In 2006, Ciara decided to try her hand at acting and she appeared in MTV’s made-for-TV movie, All You’ve Got.
Over the course of her career, Ciara has been linked to several celebrity men and unfortunately, all of her relationships have ended.
She has also earned numerous awards and accolades, including three BET Awards, three MTV Video Music Awards, three MOBO Awards, and one Grammy Award.
The single went on to achieve worldwide success and was eventually certified three times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
The song’s success resulted in Ciara being dubbed the “First Lady of Crunk&B,” a genre comprised of classic R&B and and up-tempo “crunk” music.
