I think Ciara's got a top 40 single on her hands with this new collab with Nicki Minaj called "Living It Up". At least a top-charting R&B song. It's not a Ci-Ci dance track with an uptempo production, rather a more contemporary, yet mainstream-friendly R&B record that I couldn't help but appreciate. Nicki delivered a solid verse as well and will only add to the pull for casual listeners. My one critique is that I felt Ciara's vocals fell a little short on the bridge, but it didn't hold back the song from being a *Tibs Fav. Catch this one on Ciara's upcoming, self-titled album on July 9th.
