She never really left the scene but Ciara has experienced a sort of comeback season in 2013.
Speaking of shacking up, the year also brought the R&B songstress some real love à la Mary J. as she got engaged with Hip-Pop star, Future.
GQ recently caught up with Ciara for a photo shoot that was a bit risqué. There was plenty of sweat, naughty faces and underboob to gawk at.
For those of you who aren't complete heathens, Cici actually used her people skills with GQ. They kept it quaint and asked her a few personal questions...about her music.
GQ: This year's been great for you. Your new album, Ciara, was a hit and "Body Party" went Gold—it's one of my favorite tracks this year.
Ciara: It's one of those songs that happened fast, because it has such a sweet vibe. I can't even lie, when we were mixing it, I was listening to it over and over like a fan. I don't like using obvious samples, but it felt right—I couldn't ignore the track the way [producer] Mike Will flipped the sample of "My boo." It's one of those songs a girl can sing to her man and where guys don't have to feel too cool to slow dance with your girl.
The producer of topic, Mike WiLL Made It has really been winning this year. But so is Ciara with these pics. Check them out in the preceding gallery.
