Song You Need To Know: Ciara, ‘Gimme Dat’

Ciara‘s new track, “Gimme Dat,” is so hot it should come with its own bag of ice. One of those big 20-pound bags from the drugstore. “Gimme Dat,” which we expect to see on her upcoming album, Basic Instinct, (August 17), is produced by Tricky Stewart, and it’s an absolute destroyer. Packed with screams, shouts and super-speedy, hyper-kinetic beats, “Gimme Dat” ‘s frenetic energy is offset by Ciara’s go-to breathy sensuality and a bend-in-the-road bridge. It’s by far the sickest jam of the summer so far (no offense, Usher’s “OMG”), and an all-out sexy assault on your mind in the same kinda way that Missy Elliott’s “Work It” dropped bombs on your brain.
