The long-awaited song has leaked early.
Ciara’s headed back to the clubs with her latest musical venture.
The good news: it’s not another tired house reworking of old R&B. The bad news: it’s not as good as her own 2006 single “Get Up.”
However, the R3hab-produced “Baby Get Up” is a euphoric slice of (slightly outdated) dance-pop that plays better than most of Ciara’s last album.
The collaboration was first heard when the pair performed it during the producer’s set at Coachella last spring and its release has been pending ever since.
It was set to be released as R3hab’s single on January 29 but – like everything else that’s not ANTI – it’s leaked online early. Whether it’s the final version or not, we’ll have to wait and see.
