Ciara is back in the mix…and she wants everyone to take notice. Check out her jaw dropping hair-raising feature pic for W magazine, plus the latest dish about her music inside…

Wearing vintage by Rob & Mariel, Ciara is giving life in a new shot for W Magazine. With big gorgeous curls and a banging body covered in a tribal clothing piece, the mom of Baby Future is looking fantastic.

Here are the highlights from her accompanying interview:

On naming the album Jackie, after her mother

I felt like it was the best title for where I am in my life right now. Being a mom, I can now see the world through her eyes and fully understand what she was thinking. Being a mom has changed me forever.

On what makes this album so different than her previous albums

I am so much more expressive and confident than I have ever been in my life. Even though there has been musical and personal growth, this album really takes me back in time, to when I didn’t overthink the creative process. Before, I would have said Goodies was my favorite album, but now I believe Jackie is my best body of work.

On what she wants her fans to feel

I want you to feel realness, feel happiness, and all the positive energy I have in my life right now. But most importantly, I hope you play the album over and over.

Check out the rest over at W Mag. CiCi’s tour (almost) 1-month tour starts May 3rd, and Jackie will be released on May 4th.
