Goodies (2004)

Details Release Date: Sep 28, 2004; Lead Performance: Ciara; Genre: R&B

If Aaliyah had lived to make another CD, it might have sounded like Goodies. Like the late singer, 18-year-old ''Crunk & B'' princess Ciara coos and pants beguilingly, infusing a sweet, sensual bounce into even the most routine club cuts. And if the chart-topping title song seems like a catchy stroke of luck, the party starter ''1, 2 Step'' (with Missy Elliott) and the electro lullaby ''Next to You'' prove she's no one-track pony.
