The R&B princess, Ciara, is back with an edgy, dark new track, "Paint It, Black," and it's already on repeat. Featured in The Last Witch Hunter movie, "Paint It, Black" is a cover of the classic Rolling Stones' song.
“It was actually a surprise for me when I got the call from ABKCO Publishing and Lionsgate. When they asked me to do this, I was like, ‘Absolutely. This would be an honor,’” Ciara told Rolling Stone. “I had never thought to cover this song. It was never on my radar to cover it, but when the opportunity came along, I was very thrilled, because I love what the producer Adrianne Gonzales did. The direction that she went in was actually a sound I've always wanted to play with, and it just didn't get any better than being able to cover a Rolling Stones song. I feel like it pushes the edge and the limit for me, in reference to what people probably expect from me. So this was so many cool things in one. It was a huge honor, and then creatively I just got to really have some fun that I don't usually do in my music," says Ciara.
