Ciara revealed that her hit “Goodies” was almost a Britney Spears song.
The 34-year-old singer revealed that she was made for a “re-audition” for the 2004 song – her debut single from the self-titled album – and had no idea her label was considering gifting it to the hitmaker ‘Toxic’.
Fortunately, he nailed the audition.
While hosting “On Level Up Radio with Ciara” on Apple Music Hits, she shared: “I had to audition again, be taken and become a priority for the label. It.
“Not knowing that behind the scenes, there was a conversation about this song that I was potentially taken and given to an artist like Britney Spears, who was on the same list as me.
“I knew it was a very, very special record”.
If Ciara had known that the song was being considered for other artists, she would have “fought tooth and nail” to keep it, especially since she co-wrote it.
He said: “It was because it’s a record that I actually helped create.
“This was my first real song that I released in the universe.
“My first song, and by the grace of God, was also a number one song, and it stayed on the Billboard charts for eight weeks. It was just surreal to see my dream come true.”
The top star has previously admitted that the record still has a “special” place in her heart.
He said, “It’s a little surreal – it’s like pinching myself and saying, ‘This is literally 15 years ago.’ Like, 15 years ago it seems so far away.
