Ciara: 'I don't see myself beneath Beyoncé and Jay Z'
Ciara doesn't see herself "beneath Beyonce and Jay Z".
The 'Love Sex Magic' hitmaker has insisted she's just as big as superstars such as the 'Drunk In Love' singer, her rapper husband, or Rihanna, and instead believes her biggest competition when it comes to music is herself.
She said: "Everything's about timing. I've had records just as big as those artists, I've had No 1 songs around the world. My biggest competition is me.
"I faced those challenges. I don't see myself beneath Beyoncé and Jay Z; I don't see myself above them. I'm in my own world, hungry to grow. (sic)"
The 29-year-old star originally topped charts around the world with her debut single 'Goodies' a decade ago, and with the release of her sixth album 'Jackie' earlier this month, she believes she will continue to become even more well known.
She said: "There's no doubt in my mind how high up this train can go."
However, after 10 years in the music industry, and having recently given birth to her son, Future Jr, Ciara confessed she is unsure how much longer she will be making music because she has dreams of becoming a businesswoman.
She told The Guardian newspaper: "I don't know if I'll still be doing music 20 years from now. It's the foundation of my business, but I want to be a successful entrepreneur. I know I'm gonna be it."
