A report circulating concerning the grasp recordings from Ciara’s discography being gifted to her for the vacations from husband Russell Wilson is not correct.
Over the weekend, a report from Media Take Out began gaining traction during which it was alleged that Wilson purchased the masters from Jive and Epic. “Russell bought her the masters and gave them to her, in her name only,” a “music executive” and “insider” instructed the gossip website, including that the gifting happened in 2017.
However, sources near the couple instructed Complex that Russell Wilson didn’t buy Ciara her masters as a Christmas present.
Last week, Ciara did say throughout a 2019 Makers Conference Q&A that she owned her masters. Ownership basically, she mentioned, has “always been important” to her. “Being able to own my masters has been really cool,” she mentioned, pointing to the “freedom and flexibility” such a place offers an artist.
Ciara’s most up-to-date studio album was the Epic-released Jackie again in 2015. The album notably featured appearances from Pitbull and Missy Elliott, as properly as manufacturing from Dr. Luke and Polow da Don. The album’s title marked a tribute to her mom, a transfer she defined in an interview with W as indicative of the place she was at in her life on the time.
“Even though there has been musical and personal growth, this album really takes me back in time, to when I didn’t overthink the creative process,” she mentioned in 2015. The album, she added, now stands as what she feels is her strongest work up to now.
