Brief excerpt from cover story by Lola Ogunnaike:
While most of her peers who entered the music biz around the same time have become fodder for “Where are they now?” specials, Ciara remains a force. She kicked off 2019 by co-hosting Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest. The steamy video for her latest single, “Greatest Love,” was viewed almost two million times in two days, which is not surprising given the way Ciara unabashedly flaunts her flawless physique while crooning adoration for her husband of two years, Russell Wilson, the 30-year-old star quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks. In January the mother of two — son Future is 4, and daughter Sienna is 2 — also realized a lifelong dream by launching Beauty Marks Entertainment (BME), a company that houses all her various projects including a new record label. “There are so many learning curves that I’m going through with having my own company, but it’s so fun,” she says. “I feel like I’m growing, and I feel free.”
The years have been kind to Ciara, who appears to be pulling a Benjamin Button and aging in reverse. Over a lunch of mahi-mahi tacos, the singer is somehow aglow despite wearing no makeup and being casually dressed in black jeans and a matching fitted sweater, her long raven-colored hair cascading over one shoulder.
