Artists(s): Ciara Featuring Chamillionaire
Title: Get Up
Catalog Number: 82876-88403-1
With a hook undetectable on the first listen, Ciara’s “Get Up” has the makings of another dance-music pop hit. But is it coy hooking or just a lack of personality? I tend to think it’s the latter. Ciara emerged at a time when the diva was an endangered species — since the diva’s always bigger than her songs and Ciara’s function is to emit as little personality as possible so as not to get in the way of her songs, I’ve always thought of her as the anti-diva. But even if she’s just a bland girl, her music isn’t and thru it, she is at the forefront of R&B’s re-embrace of dance music.
