Ciara and the new video for "Ride" - Come on baby girl, Does it take all of that

Actually it's not Ciara's fault. Syndicated morning host Rickey Smiley observed on his show this week that he wasn't really feeling this "new" Ciara. He liked the image of Ciara that was introduced to the masses back in late 2004. The Ciara that received a Soul Train Entertainer of Year Award way too soon...(lol) The Ciara that had a female swagger in the style similar to Aaliyah.

We won't preach here...but it's the same sort of thing media and music industry watchdog websites like Industry Ears and Hip Hop author and critic Tricia Rose continually talk about when it comes to sexually explicit lyrics and media images aimed at and consumed by young African Americans. The so-called Hip Hop generation.

Take a look at the following videos both featuring Ludacris. Ciara's "Oh" in 2005 and "Ride" the first release from her new album. Hmmm.... makes you wonder what videos will be like in 2015. Will there be anything left to the imagination?

More news...On Sunday 107.5 WBLS weekend host LaDawn Black announced she was moving on to a new opportunity and leaving the station. Black made a surprise return to radio this week at her old stomping grounds as a guest host on The AM Clique Morning Show this week on 92Q (WERQ-FM Baltimore). LaDawn hosted the very popular night show 'The Love Zone' until 2013 when she moved over to sister Adult R&B station Magic 95.9 as midday host.

iHeart's Power 99 (WUSL-FM Philadelphia) midday host Cappuchino exits the station. She's been with the station since 2012. 'Way Up with Angela Yee' is now heard on Power 99 as one of the 30 affiliates that carry the syndicated program across the country.

Questlove went to Instagram to celebrate the word “jawn” being recognized as an official word in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. The dialectic term is native to his hometown. In Philadelphia and Eastern PA, “jawn” evolved as a variant of “joint,” originally denoting a place. “Jawn” has been used to describe almost anything that one need not or cannot give a specific name to. Suddenly jawn has become not cool to use.
