Epic RecordsCiara caps off the week with another new song. After debuting her second single, “Dance Like We’re Making Love,” the singer reunites with Missy Elliott on “That’s How I’m Feelin’,” which also features Pitbull. Ci Ci recently spilled how the collaboration came together.

“She and I just have something really special,” Ciara tells ABC Radio. “I just felt it was only right to have one of the kings of dance music and one of the queens of dance music — I really call them the king and queen of energy, more than anything.”

Ciara notes of her collaborators that “there’s never been the two of them together [on a song],” adding, “They both bring something to the table that’s so unique and special.”

“Clearly, Missy and I have had such great success together,” Ciara says, referring to their previous hit songs, including 2004 hit “1, 2 Step.”

“It just felt right, it was one of those things that was super organic, it just worked itself out,” Ciara concludes.

“That’s How I’m Feelin’,” which was produced by Polow Da Don and penned by Ester Dean, appears on Ciara’s upcoming album, Jackie, due out May 4.

The album, which she named after her mother, also includes contributions from Dr. Luke, Harmony Samuels, The Underdogs, Rock City, Ester Dean, and Diane Warren, as well as two remixes for “I Bet” with T.I. and Joe Jonas, respectively.
