Ciara Claps Back At College Coach For Calling Her New EP “TikTok Music”


The Atlanta-bred songstress reacts to online hate.

R&B veteran Ciara let her 7-track CiCi EP loose on August 18. The project hosts songs such as “BRB,” “How We Roll” featuring Chris Brown and “Forever” featuring Lil Baby.

A Twitter (X) user took aim at Ciara for her “BRB” song. College of William & Mary women’s basketball assistant coach Kenia Cole posted, “She making Tik Tok music [at this point.]”

Ciara responded to Coach Kenia Cole’s critical take. The Grammy winner shot back, “And… you’re watching… 🙂 taking time to comment. Gotta love it. #CiCi EP.”

One of the singer’s fans showed her support by posting, “THANK YOU FOR LETTING #CiCi OUT ON THESE HOES! SHUT ‘EM UP, FAVE!!!!!!!! #CiCi outside [for real], lmaoooooo YES!!!!!!”

That comment led to Ciara stating, “Not the assistant coach of a women’s basketball team taking time to hate… that makes no sense.” She added a GIF of actress Viola Davis grabbing her purse.

CiCi joins a discography that also includes full-length albums like 2004’s Goodies, 2006’s The Evolution, 2009’s Fantasy Ride and her self-titled LP in 2013.

The music video for “How We Roll” co-starring Chris Brown racked up 8.8 million YouTube views since its premiere on August 4. “Forever” with Lil Baby already surpassed 1.1 million plays in three days.
