Pregnant with her third child, 34-year-old singer Ciara worked hard to the last. Today, the star presented her new video for the song Rooted, recorded together with Esther Dean, which she filmed two days before giving birth.
In the video, the singer appeared with classic African curls. In the video, she sings about her roots and race and dances twerk (by the way, Svetlana Loboda performed the same dance in her video in the last month of pregnancy).
This song allowed me to celebrate our uniqueness and strength. Everything we need to survive and thrive is rooted in us. You are never limited by your gender or skin color. This is how I live, and therefore it is important for me to continue to express it. And continue to encourage not only my fans, but especially our black community,
The video also features footage of protests in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, which emerged after the deaths of black Americans George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, who died as a result of police misconduct.
To all my young Roses and Luthers: keep marching. Don’t stop fighting for what you believe in
