Hours before Ciara dropped her new single, “Dose,” she gave fans a taste of what they’ll hear by singing acapella in her bathroom. While fans were giddy about the teaser, they were also shocked by how much she sounded like Janet Jackson.
“I’m a groundbreaking woman, I get loud when I wanna,” Ciara sings. “Put me down, I’ll go harder. Promise that I give you life, promise that I know what you like. … Trust me boy, it’s worth the wait. Ain’t no stoppin’ when I start. Ima hit you with a dose, Ima get a little closer.”
“I just love the lyrics to this song! One of my favorite songs I’ve done! Bathroom Fun 🤣 #Dose out tonight 💃🏽,” the singer wrote in the caption.
Fans immediately began comparing Ci to the “Rhythm Nation” singer.
“Yessssss giving me miss @janetjackson at home.”
“We hear ya Ciara! I love 💕 the lyrics to that song! For a minute, I thought I was listening to Janet Jackson 😉. This is your time to shine! You’re a very beautiful and talented artist! God bless you and your family . 🙏”
“I swear ur are the next generation of Janet Jackson.”
Some fans even likened Ci’s vocal ticks to Michael Jackson.
“This gave me MJ heartbreak hotel feels.”
“Ciara is soft spoken but there’s nothing soft about this song #Dose and she bringing some of that poppin snapping MJ appeal to this one. Issa style and feelin that could only remind one of MJ and Ci Ci got it! I’m sorry if you don’t get it. But it’s all good. I can help you get there.
