Ciara Taps Pitbull & Missy Elliott for ‘That’s How I’m Feelin”
Ciara has been hitting us with mid-tempo jams lately like “I Bet” and “Dance Like We’re Making Love,” but she’s ready to kick it up a notch with the dance floor burner “That’s How I’m Feelin.’” The song reunites the singer with her good friend Missy Elliott and adds Pitbull to the party.
Produced by Polow da Don, the bouncy jam, which liberally samples Afrika Bambaataa’s “Planet Rock,” features CiCi singing about getting turned up in the club and teasing all of the boys who are holding up the wall.
“I don't drink but I might take a few shots for tonight / I might get messed up but at least I'll be feelin' just right / And I don't love you but I might say I love you tonight / That's how I'm feelin', that's how I'm feelin',” she sings.
Mr. 305 comes in and praises Ciara's beautiful attributes on the dance floor. "I see you baby, big thighs, small waist, cute face / I wanna please you baby," he raps.
But it's Missy who steals the show by delivering a fast-paced verse, rapping, "If I see a fine dude I'm like, 'come here' / Them chicks alright, baby I'm the real deal."
Ciara is set to release her new album, Jackie, on May. 4. Prior to that, the "Goodies" singer will embark on her U.S. tour, which kicks off May 3 in Chicago.
