Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl-winning quarterback Russell Wilson appeared at Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner with his grandmother as his date, making his rumored girlfriend Ciara conspicuous by her absence. The Atlanta singer made her own headlines for the second consecutive weekend after last week’s surprise Coachella appearance by previewing two tracks from her upcoming album, Jackie.
Ciara took to Instagram and posted a snippet of an EDM-flavored track entitled, “Fly,” which she says was produced by Polow Da Don. The pair worked together on 2006’s “Promise,” and Polow’s previous credits include Chris Brown’s “Forever,” Rich Boy’s “Throw Some D’s,” and Usher’s “Love In This Club.” Ciara also previewed the album’s intro, which she says was produced by Harmony.
Ciara’s Jackie album is scheduled for a May 4 release. Her previous studio album, 2013’s self-titled Ciara, debuted at the number two spot on Nielsen SoundScan’s weekly sales chart with first week sales of 59,000. The album spawned the top 25 Billboard single, “Body Party.” The lead single from Jackie, entitled “I Bet,” currently sits at the number 43 spot on Billboard magazine’s “Hot 100” singles chart. You can view previews of both “Fly” and the Jackie intro below via Instagram.
