If you weren't expecting Ciara's sudden move towards rock, neither was she: "To be honest with you, it was actually a surprise for me when I got the call," the singer told Rolling Stone. "I had never thought to cover this song. It was never on my radar to cover it, but when the opportunity came along, I was very thrilled, because I love what the producer Adrianne Gonzales did. The direction that she went in was actually a sound I've always wanted to play with... I feel like it pushes the edge and the limit for me."

According to Ciara, The Last Witch Hunter is "really awesome." "I really enjoyed it," she added. "It was honestly a perfect film." Look for that to hit theaters on October 23. Revisit 9 times Ciara set a new standard for pop dance videos.
