The song has a beautiful melody as well as wonderful harmonies.
M. Mariba
I just wish she would have put more songs on it....like "Blauw" and "Get It Girl" and "This Is What Love Is" and "Listen To My Song".

Overall, i feel like ciara released this album with way too much competition,and I think she'll be fine in the future.

I happen to like Ciara, but to be completely honest, I am not too fond of this "too sexy" Ciara. When she first arrived on the scene, she was not only a fresh, beautiful face, who could dance her BUTT off, but she also had fresh material to sing about. The thing I loved and respected about Ciara was she was absolutely stunning, she wore the baddest shoes I have ever seen (and still does :) ), she carried herself like a lady, yet sexy at the same time, and she knew how to make you get up and dance without subjecting her listeners to sexually suggestive lyrics. Now-a-days, Ciara has really "settled" for stripper-influenced choreography , but also, her lyrics allow you to make the assumption that she is quite a promiscuous female. I don't know....I understand Ciara is grown, but her style has changed...for the worst (and that is just MY OPINION--please do not attack me for my personal opinion because this is my review). Don't get me wrong, there are a few songs on the album that are absolute BANGERS: I.e. "Gimmie Dat, Girls Get Your Money, Wants For Dinner, and I Run It," but I guess I just expected a little more from her. Judging by the video/song "Basic Instinct (You Got Me)," I just knew Ciara was going back to her roots and make more hits with Missy Elliot, Jazze Pha, Lil John, etc. with songs such as "1, 2, Step, Lookin At You, That's Right, Like A Boy, Promise, Get Up, C.R.U.S.H., etc (I'm sure you get the point), but she didn't do that with this album. Don't get me wrong....Ciara has made a major improvement from her previous disappointing album that is entitled "Fantasy Ride," but I still expected more from Ciara! I love her R&B/Crunk music and I truly feel as though she is loosing her roots. I'm not saying the album is complete trash, but she could have done better.Read more ›

Ciara Princess Harris is somewhat underrated as an artist, as she is capable of combining many elements into her music and videos. Her voice can be both sassy and sweet, she is a great dancer, and she has an element of sex appeal.

On "Basic Instinct," she is able to combine those elements effectively enough to produce a very entertaining, hook-filled hip hop/pop crossover album. On her first two albums (2004's "Goodies" and 2006's "The Evolution") the strongest moments were without question the singles, as "My Goodies," "1 2 Step," and "Like A Boy" were killer hits and burned up the charts. On her 2009 album "Fantasy Ride" she mixed in a few tender ballads, a duet with Justin Timberlake, and a few dancefloor anthems ("Work" is one of her best ever songs), but only one single managed the top 10.

Just over a year later, "Basic Instinct" has appeared, after several delays. The first two singles ("Ride" and "Gimme Dat") have not been huge chart hits, which is disappointing, because they are quite good (but not great) tracks. The best moments come during the middle of the album, when she teams up with Tricky Stewart for a couple of mainstream hip-pop gems ("Heavy Rotation" and "Yeah I Know'). Later in the album, there is a nice song featuring Usher, called "Turn It Up." As typically is the case with Usher, the song hits the mark.

In conclusion, Ciara has enough excellent songs here to make "Basic Instinct" a fine record, although not a great one. But in an era in which there are plenty of female singers all over the top of the charts who are turning out auto-tuned cheese, it is a shame that Ciara is not getting more airplay, because the quality of the best songs on this album are right up there with what Beyonce and Rihanna have done the past several years.

Ciara has struggled as of late to hold a consistent fan base to `commercially' support her studio efforts. 2009's Fantasy Ride showed the first waning of the fan base Ciara built on 2004's Goodies and 2006's Ciara: The Evolution. 'Fantasy Ride' debuted at #3, but did so with nearly a 250,000 cut in album sales from the #1 bow of The Evolution. 'Fantasy Ride' ended up tanking and building very little buzz around its two most prominent singles, "Never Ever" featuring Young Jeezy and the Grammy-nominated "Love Sex Magic" featuring Justin Timberlake. Basic Instinct enters the market with lower expectations, but proves to be Ciara's most focused and cohesive effort to date. First single "Ride" is Ciara's steamiest, risqué single to date, but also finds the singer more invigorated than ever. `Basic Instinct' is on pace to give Ciara her lowest sales numbers, but let's face it - she's in the majority now with so many unimpressive sales for capable, urban albums. `Basic Instinct' may not buy `C' any new fans (unfortunately), but this is her best album buy a mile.

The biggest factor that makes `Basic Instinct' a capable effort is that the majority of the album is produced by R&B production stand-outs Christopher "Tricky" Stewart and Terius "The-Dream" Nash. 2009's Fantasy Ride featured some excellent contributions from this team ("Like A Surgeon," "Lover's Thing," etc.
