Newcomer Ciara caught the attention of listeners with her debut single "Goodies" featuring Petey Pablo. Her album is filled with hip hop party anthems and smooth R&B laced tunes. "1,2 Step" featuring Missy Elliott is one of the best tracks and is a fun number for the dance floors. "Thug Style" has a soft and mellow groove. Ludacris drops some vocals with Ciara on the enticing "Oh." This talented young lady teams up with music veteran R.Kelly on "Next To You." "And I" is a notable track as is "Other Chicks." A bonus remix of "Goodies" featuring T.I. and Jazze Pha ends off an enjoyable listening experience. An artist to discover.
