In her new single with Ester Dean, Ciara wanted to celebrate Black excellence. The R&B singer shared “Rooted” along with a music video that features a very pregnant Ciara showing off her bare belly while rocking an afro. The visual is littered with Black imagery that some may consider to be “ghetto” or “aggressive,” but Ciara and Ester’s message is that from skin tone to hair textures to spirituality to talent, Black people are just as beautiful as anyone else and should continue their quest in being “rooted.”

The conclusion of the music video ends with text that reads: “To all my young Rosa’s and Young Luther’s keep marching. Don’t stop fighting for what you believe in. To all my Black queens and kings, continue to plant and spread seeds of love, hope and pride in your tribe.

Lyrics

[Intro: Ester Dean]
Better than rooted now
Mi seeds we did now
Mi rooted in the melanin

[Chorus: Ciara]
Young girl stay rooted
I done plant my seeds now I’m rooted
Brown skin poppin’, I’m rooted
ATL bred, I’m rooted
Rooted, nappy head rooted

[Verse 1: Ciara]
All my songs come with melanin
Got the heart, got the soul like Harriet
A queen since she born, that was evident
That’s evidence, of black excellence
I can tell a good dog when I’m pettin’ ’em
Know that if I have his tribe, he protectin’ ’em
Mother of a child and God I invest in ’em
Nutritionin’, brown milkin’ em (Brown milkin’ ’em)

[Pre-Chorus: Ciara]
Young Rosa, young Luther keep marchin’ (Yeah, yeah)
Flood gates comin’ open don’t stop ’em
I know that life it ain’t easy (Oh-oh, oh)
Your life it matters, believe me (Oh-oh, oh)
Rule out the fakes and the frauds
They hide it behind a facade

[Chorus: Ciara]
Young girl stay rooted
I done plant my seeds now I’m rooted
Brown skin poppin’, I’m rooted
Can’t pull the hood out me, I’m rooted
Rooted, nappy head rooted
I done plant my seeds now I’m rooted
Brown skin poppin’, I’m rooted
ATL bred, I’m rooted
Rooted, nappy head rooted

[Verse 2: Ciara]
All my rules stay embedded in
Hard work, let ’em know, ain’t no trainin’ in
Poppin’ off the charts, that’s a better win
Then poppin’ off in the streets, ain’t no checkin’ it
I can tell a good dog when I’m pettin’ ’em
Know that if I have his tribe, he protectin’ ’em
Mother of a child and God I invest in ’em
Nutritionin’, brown milkin’ em (Brown milkin’ ’em)

[Pre-Chorus: Ciara]
Young Rosa, young Luther keep marchin’ (Yeah, yeah)
Flood gates comin’ open but no it don’t stop ’em
I know that life it ain’t easy (Oh-oh, oh)
Your life it matters, believe me (Oh-oh, oh)
Rule out the fakes and the frauds
They hide it behind a facade

[Chorus: Ciara & Ester Dean]
Young girl stay rooted
I done plant my seeds now I’m rooted
Brown skin poppin’, I’m rooted
Can’t pull the hood out me, I’m rooted
Rooted, nappy head rooted
I done plant my seeds now I’m rooted
Brown skin poppin’, I’m rooted
ATL bred, I’m rooted
Rooted, nappy head rooted

[Bridge: Ciara & Ester Dean]
Watch out boy
You think you can pull up out of my stems
Nah, mi rooted in the soil
Mi rooted in the melanin

[Chorus: Ciara & Ester Dean]
Young girl stay rooted
I done plant my seeds now I’m rooted
Brown skin poppin’, I’m rooted
Can’t pull the hood out me, I’m rooted
Rooted, nappy head rooted
I done plant my seeds now I’m rooted
Brown skin poppin’, I’m rooted
ATL bred, I’m rooted
Rooted, nappy head rooted
