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?
