Ciara isn’t big on comparing herself to other artists.
During an interview with The Guardian, the singer reveals her thoughts on where she stands in the industry with the likes of Beyonce and Rihanna. “You know what I think?” she asks, rhetorically. “Everything’s about timing. I’ve had records just as big as those artists, I’ve had No. 1 songs around the world. My biggest competition is me.”
Although she acknowledges her missteps, Ciara remains focused on her successes. “There’s no doubt in my mind how high up this train can go,” she says. “I faced those challenges. I don’t see myself beneath Beyonce and Jay Z; I don’t see myself above them. I’m in my own world, hungry to grow.”
The singer, who says she’s previously predicted the success of her debut album, believes that she’s just getting warmed up. “Now I’m on this next chapter in my life and I can assure you: give me 10 years, it’s gonna be great. I believe it,” she says.
Ciara’s latest album, Jackie, is available in stores now.
