iTunes Editors’ Notes

On her debut album, 19-year-old Ciara Princess Harris strikes a balance between R&B divas past and present. Specifically, her style falls between the icy inflections of Janet Jackson and the bodacious grandstanding of Beyonce. Bolstered by productions from a lineup of fellow Atlanta luminaries — including Jazze Pha, Lil Jon, and Bangladesh —Goodies gives the female vocalist the opportunity to outshine a male-dominated field of contemporaries. The title track is a woozy confection of club music and crunk, while Missy Elliott’s appearance on the mesmerizing “One, Two Step” is enough to remind the listener of Aaliyah, another charismatic young singer who straddles the line between R&B and hip-hop. Rather than shower the listener with a series of Mariah Carey-like glissandos, Ciara plays it low-key. She's the smooth operator, calm, cool and always in control. Whether on the sweltering “Oh” or the no-nonsense demands of the title track, her breathy soprano can convey sexual heat and frosty attitude with equal aplomb.

I know I want some of those Goodies

Excellent Album

the best album ever I think I love Ciara she's the best and when I hear her songs I want to dance

not amazing, but good enough!

Fantasy Ride was amazing. Really amazing. Especially Work. If this is where she started from, I can see how she evolved. Ciara, you are great. And you sound amazing with Missy Elliot! No wonder you guys do so many duets.

Dubbed "the First Lady of Crunk & B" by the producer who should know, Lil Jon, singer Ciara burst onto the scene with the never-gonna-get-it single "Goodies," the breathy "answer song" to Petey Pablo's "Freek-a-Leek." She was born in Austin, Texas, but with her father in the Army, Ciara spent time living in Germany, New York, California, Arizona, and Nevada before landing in Atlanta. In her early teens, she got a piece of paper out and wrote down her life's goal, to become a professional singer....
