Ciara reflects on juggling motherhood and creating “music in the midst of it all”

Be patient fans: R&B singer Ciara is back in the studio preparing her second independent release.

The “I Got You” singer tells ABC Audio new music is coming “in the near, near future,” though she is primarily focused on tending to her three children: six-year-old Future Zahir, three-year-old Sienna Princess, and four-month-old baby boy Win.

“I’ve been able to make a little bit with my time [between] not only having to breastfeed and do classes with my kids and work at home,” says Ciara. “Meetings after meetings, Zoom calls, all that good stuff, but there has been music in the midst of it all and I can’t wait to share it with the world.”

“I’m excited,” adds Ciara, who has learned to balance out her roles as a mother and wife to Seahawks football player Russell Wilson with her successful Grammy-winning singing and dance career.

“Life is a balancing act these days with everything,” says Ciara, “but the music [creates]…a good moment to let go, to also relax and just have some good feelings flowing throughout.”

2019’s Beauty Marks was Ciara’s first album under her label of the same name. Over the past few months, she’s flexed her dance moves in the video for her single “Rooted,” featuring Esther Dean, and her vocals on “In Spite of Me,” a collaboration with Gospel singer Tasha Cobbs Leonard.

Not to mention, she’s been busy promoting her and Wilson’s recently launched unisex perfume, The R&C Fragrance, their fashion house The House of L&RC, and their newest brand, Human Nation. 

Next, Ciara will take over the Los Angeles celebration of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2021 for the fourth year.
