Ciara’s ‘Goodies’ Was Almost A Britney Spears Song

Ciara’s 2004 breakout hit “Goodies” was just the beginning of her superstar career. But she recently revealed that it was almost going to be a song for pop singer Britney Spears.

The mom of 3 said that while she helped the write the song, she had to audition to be the voice behind it.

“I had to reaudition again, to be picked up and to be made a priority on the label. I did that, had a showcase, rocked it. Okay, boom, check.”

But little did she know there was chatter to possibly give the song to Britney Spears.

Not knowing that behind the scenes, there was a conversation about this song being potentially taken from me and given to an artist like Britney Spears, who was on the same roster as me. I knew that it was a very, very special record.”

That proved to be true as the song topped the Billboard Hot 100 for weeks after its release.  Ciara continued and said had she known what was going on behind the scenes, she would’ve “fought tooth and nail” to secure the song for herself.

It was because it’s a record that I actually was a part of creating.”

“This was my very first song that I put out into the universe. My first song, and by God’s grace, it also was a number one song, and it lasted on the Billboard charts for eight weeks. It was just kind of surreal to see that my dream was coming true.”
