Ciara Princess Harris (born October 25, 1985), known as Ciara, is an American singer, songwriter, dancer, actress and fashion model.

She released her second studio album Ciara: The Evolution in 2006, which spawned the hit singles "Get Up," "Promise," and "Like a Boy".The album reached number one in the US and was certified platinum. Her third studio album Fantasy Ride, released in May 2009, was considerably less successful than Ciara's first two albums. However, it produced the worldwide top-ten hit "Love Sex Magic" featuring Justin Timberlake, which earned her a Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals. The following year, Ciara released her fourth studio album Basic Instinct, which was met with low sales and continued a downward trend in her commercial success. In 2011, she signed a new record deal with Epic Records.
