Ciara – ‘Paint It Black’
By Amber B
Ciara released her Jackie album earlier this but she’s back on the scene with brand new music.
Ciara has covered The Rolling Stones’ classic 1966 song ‘Paint It Black’, which is lifted from the soundtrack of the upcoming Vin Diesel movie called The Last Witch Hunter. It is set to hit theaters October 23rd. CiCi showcases her vocal range on the dark song which is now available for stream in full.
She tells Rollingstone magazine:
It was actually a surprise for me when I got the call from Universal Publishing and Lionsgate. When they asked me to do this, I was like, “Absolutely. This would be an honor.” I had never thought to cover this song. It was never on my radar to cover it, but when the opportunity came along, I was very thrilled, because I love what the producer Adrianne Gonzales did. The direction that she went in was actually a sound I’ve always wanted to play with, and it just didn’t get any better than being able to cover a Rolling Stones song. I feel like it pushes the edge and the limit for me, in reference to what people probably expect from me. So this was so many cool things in one. It was a huge honor, and then creatively I just got to really have some fun that I don’t usually do in my music.
