When "Goodies," Ciara's first single came out, this is not where we would have expected her to land three albums later. Or two, or four or whatever. Because, exactly, you have a bunch of records? And you are regular famous? Why didn't you stay weird? Instead, you have a song called "Love Sex Magic" where you say you can make us believe in love sex magic. First two, we're there. Third, Chris Angel ruined for us. You know what else ruined it for us? The out of sync backup dancers and that split that doesn't work you do in front of Justin Timberlake's electric piano. At least he's a completely lovable dweeb. Who happens to sound like Stevie Wonder. Ciara, take notes.
