Ciara teams up with some of Hollywood’s iconic stars to celebrate melanin queens around the world. Waking up to a new single by Ciara featuring Lupita Nyong’O, Ester Dean, City Girls, and LALA is exactly the kind of motivation we needed to jumpstart our day. The upbeat tempo will most certainly put you in the dancing mood as Ciara raps, “…my girls in every shade, we put the ‘s’ in slay, I’m lifting up my queens, fixing crowns that’s my thing…”

Ciara shared a short clip of the empowering single on her Instagram, praising “#melanin queens around the world.”

We wonder if the “Beauty Marks” singer will perform her new anthem at this year’s American Music Awards. Ciara is set to host the highly anticipated event Sunday, Nov. 24 on ABC.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Ciara shares that “a host never tells” when asked what she had up her sleeve for this year’s event. She adds, “I’m going to give my fans a treat on the day of the show. But I can’t say what it’s going to be. But I’m super excited about it!”

As we patiently countdown the days until the AMA’s, take a listen to Ciara’s new single “Melanin” featuring Lupita Nyong’O, Ester Dean, City Girls, and LALA.
