Future's Invited to Ciara's "Body Party"

by Jonah Wolf

Ciara's single "Body Party" strips out the frenetic Miami bass drumbeats from Ghost Town DJs' 1996 single "My Boo," retaining the floating jazz chords -- the same progression as "Just the Two of Us" -- and adding goofy AutoTuned "oohs" from Ciara's boyfriend Future. The new video re-imagines the couple's courtship: poolside at a lavish house party, with Future telling Ci, "You know you gon' be mine, right?" Soon enough Ciara is on her back with her legs in the air "doing this little dance" for Future in the master bedroom, though the overall mood is more tender than raunchy.
