New Music: Ciara - Overdose

\
Ciara has announced her third single from her self titled fifth studio album will be her Livvi Franc penned 'Overdose'. The pop single has major cross over appeal and is really top 40 radio friendly.



Unfortunately even though 'Overdose' has major crossover appeal it still will go unrecognized and ignored by the general public and major mainstream media. Mainstream media has an unspoken rule of only allowing 2 black female megastars at time so if your not Rihanna or Beyonce (and occasionally Nicki Minaj) you'll be overlooked as "Black" music. For goodness sake Toronto's so-called urban radio station Flow 93.5 chooses not to play any music from Ciara's new album and instead is opting to play EDM tracks like Armin van Buuren's 'This Is What It Feels Like'. I guess as long as they meet their quota of playing Drake's  music every second song then their doing something for urban music.
