The anticipation for the “Better Thangs” collab Ciara and Summer Walker delivered earlier this week was just as high for the music video the ladies dropped off Friday.
R&B veteran Ciara gushed about working alongside Summer for the energetic new track and the woman empowerment felt throughout the song and visual.
“She and I have been rolling ever since we’ve connected,” Ciara told Apple Music 1’s Zane Lowe. “We’ve just had a great flow as moms, as girls. In this video, you feel the ultimate girl vibes with us. We’re having a good time. We’re laughing. You can feel the empowerment of us. There’s other girls in the video too, as far as dancers and all that good stuff. So you just feel the power of all of us.”
The song and video gives off ’90s R&B vibes with its upbeat tempo, ’90s inspired hairstyles and carefree lyrics.
The “Level Up” singer said the new track is all about being and staying positive and “getting to joy.”
“It’s too much going on in the world. Life is way too short,” she said. “So for me, I’m like, how can I get to joy? How can I get to good times? I love laughing. I love smiling. I just love good times,” she continued adding, “The ultimate goal, I think, is to motivate everyone to get the better things that they deserve in life.”
“Better Thangs” released Wednesday, two days ahead of its expected arrival. Ci Ci says she couldn’t keep it from fans any longer.
“The fans have been asking for this record for so long,” she explained. “I’ve been teasing it for a long time on my pages. So it’s time.”
