Clip available now

Ciara declares that she’s moving onto “Better Thangs” with Summer Walker on her recent new single. She premieres the empowering music video on her YouTube channel via Beauty Marks Entertainment/Uptown Records/Republic Records.

Directed by Mia Barnes, the music video finds R&B luminaries Ciara and Summer Walker embracing sisterhood, their stories, and moving on to “Better Thangs.” The two singers are twinning in matching outfits as they enjoy life and dance to choreography by viral TikTok stars the Nae Nae Twins. Their inspiring energy radiates through the screen as the song becomes a mantra of manifestation.

Earlier this week Ciara released the single with multi-platinum chart-topping phenomenon Summer Walker who pulls up with a show-stopping cameo of her own as these two leading ladies unite for the first time on a bossed-up banger of the highest order.

“‘Better Thangs’ is a feel-good R&B anthem for elevating every aspect of your life,” Ciara says. “It’s meant to bring joy while inspiring the continuous evolution of one’s self. I have so much respect for my girl Summer and it’s fitting to have her on the record because we connect on so many levels, from where we come from, to our journeys and our mission to inspire other people to go after what they deserve in life…better thangs!”

It arrives on the heels of this summer’s “Jump” [feat. Coast Contra]. The new music sets the stage for her eighth LP, coming soon, her first for Republic Records, Upton Records and Beauty Marks Entertainment.
