Ciara Chats With

Ciara recently visited The Recording Academy's headquarters in Santa Monica, CA, to participate in an exclusive interview. Ciara discussed the experience of receiving a GRAMMY nomination, her songwriting process and recent collaborations, including working with GRAMMY-nominated rapper Nicki Minaj on her latest album, "Ciara" among other topics.

"I actually have two songs I did with Nicki Minaj," said Ciara. "We didn't even plan on doing it that way but it was an organic connection, and just a really solid connection she and I had musically."
