Riff: Ciara – “I’m Out”

Jun 18, 2013

I just went through a break up/But it’s okay, I got my cake up/Do my hair, put on some makeup/Tryna see where tonight gon’ take us

from I'm Out lyrics by Ciara

Post break up celebrations aren’t exclusively reserved for intimate relationships. It can be between an underrated R&B princess and a label that didn’t do diddly for her last two albums. Perhaps that’s what Ciara is celebrating in this nut cracking anthem featuring the abominable Nicki Minaj.
