Ciara Drops Powerful “Rooted” Video, Shot Days Before Giving Birth [WATCH]

Singer Ciara,34, paid homage to Breonna Taylor, her Atlanta roots, and black girls in new track “Rooted” featuring Ester Dean.  The video celebrates black excellence, and has created discussions online surrounding the Black Lives Matter movement.  Ciara sings on the track,

Young girl stay rooted
I done plant my seeds now I’m rooted
Brown skin poppin’, I’m rooted
ATL bred, I’m rooted
Rooted, nappy head rooted

All my songs come with melanin
Got the heart, got the soul like Harriett
A queen since she born, that was evident
That’s evidence, of black excellence
I can tell a good dog when I’m pettin’ ’em
Know that if I have the strap, he protectin’ ’em
Mother of a child and God I invest in ’em
Nutritionin’, brown milkin’ em (Brown milkin’ ’em)

The video is heavy on dancing, including Ciara who says that she shot the video just days before delivering her third child Win Harrison Wilson.    The video also features her other two children, Future Zahir Wilburn, and Sienna Princess Wilson.

She took to Instagram dropping the visual, with caption,

“ATL bred I’m #Rooted. Shot this video 2 days before delivery, Covid style! Out now!”

Ciara’s husband Russell Wilson also announced the video on his Twitter, accompanied by a sweet message to his wife, saluting her for shooting the video so close to her delivery date.
