In 2017, Ciara said she will make the world dance. With singles like Level Up released barely two months ago and now Freak Me you can tell she’s serious. A Ciara and Tekno collaboration is nothing you expected before you came across it on Twitter and while many were concerned about what would end up coming, it’s a pretty decent effort that will definitely have some new listeners checking for Tekno.
Coming through with a blast of Trumpet, drums and her signature sultry vocals spliced with Tekno’s tinged with elements of African gruffness, Ciara tempts everyone to get their freak on. In 3 minutes blasting through lush lyrics like “Whine slow on it, take control of it, take all of it, yeah, all of it, said you want it, now you own it“, like she does most times but with a huge welcome twist this time, she takes us through dance soundscapes whilst giving us touches of her sensual side and touches of the spirituality afrobeat induces through Tekno.
Ciara has levelled up with this single following her chart topping Level Up single which saw everyone taking on the Level Up challenge. To a greater extent Ciara and Tekno are challenging us to level up and get our freaks on.
