Ciara is shedding a lot of angsty emotion towards her ex-fiancé Future (as well as her clothes) in her new music video for “I Bet,” which premiered earlier this week, and we couldn’t be prouder of the singer for getting a little real.
In the the five-minute video, which was directed by Hannah Lux Davis, Ciara plays the most emotional ballerina you’ve ever seen. It’s a fairly simple and effective visual for the entertainer, who offers the camera several glamour shots, as well as a killer dance routine. However, what’s more interesting is what she’s singing about in the mid-tempo R&B cut, and it’s all directed at a former flame who has majorly crossed her. Cue the Future speculation. All it takes is one listen to the hook to hear how vulnerable and scorned Ciara can really be.
“I bet you start loving me/As soon as I start loving someone else/Somebody better than you/I bet you start needing me/As soon as you see me with someone else/Somebody other than you,” she croons during the song’s hook.
Ciara is also confidently intent on calling out “that bitch over there” with the ugly stare, silicone ass and Brazilian hair, in case you were wondering. Details of their relationship get juicier as Ciara claims that he took advantage of her and acted as if he somehow upgraded her to the next level. Think again, buddy.
It’s not too big of a surprise that Ciara is using her music as an outlet to vent about Future. Just a day after the report of their split hit the blogosphere, SheKnows spoke with the new mom and she hinted that she was definitely set on including her new life ventures in her art, saying, “I can’t help but to be inspired by where life takes you.”
We hear you, sister. Sing on!
