The album will be released under her newly launched label.
Ciara has been politely dodging those "So, where's the album?" questions for a while, promising fans that she's working on something big. Her single "Level Up" was a hashtag sensation, sending dancers all over the world into a frenzy as they did their best to mimic the Atlanta singer's moves.
Now that she's gotten all of her ducks in a row in her personal life, the mononymous artist has delivered the official announcement that her forthcoming album, Beauty Marks, is on its way. Ciara also let fans in on who else to expect on the record as she gave a tracklist that showed features from Macklemore, Kelly Rowland, and Tekno.

Back in 2017, Ciara launched Beauty Marks Entertainment, her personal venture that allows her to express her talents and creativity as she sees fit. The singer recently sat down with Billboard to talk about the company and what its launch means for her as both an artist and a boss. "There have been moments in the past when I've felt creatively handicapped just because I have to wait for the powers that be to make the decisions for me and then they take a long time," Ciara said of her career delays.
"I'm just waiting and waiting and losing time and before you know it, six months pass by," she continued. "Things move so fast and you can't hold onto records too long because the times change. And when you feel like you have something that's creatively distinctive, you want to be able to get it out there at the right time. So being able to have that freedom and flexibility is so special."
