Ciara has returned with a new song called ‘Rooted’, and it comes with an accompanying music video that she filmed while pregnant. The single features Ester Dean and was produced by Hudson Mohawke and Stargate, while the visuals were conceptualized by Ciara and directed by Annie Bercy. Check it out below.
“I am blessed to be able to carry seeds of new life into this world,” Ciara, who gave birth a few weeks ago, said in a statement. “The foundation of love for my family and the pride for my culture has made me feel rooted in my life, and nothing can knock me down. I am also reminded through my trials and triumphs, everything I need to survive and thrive is rooted in me. Gender nor color of your skin can limit how far you will go in life.”
Ciara’s last album was 2019’s Beauty Marks. Back in November, she shared the single ‘Melanin’ featuring Lupita Nyong’o, La La Anthony and City Girls.
