Ciara’s gig comes on the heels of her making major moves in the industry. “I feel motivated, like when I was younger,” she told ET Live on November 1 as she reflected on her first album Goodies. “Everything happened so fast.”

Beauty Marks was Ciara’s first album that she owned the masters to from the beginning. A few months before the album's release, she purchased the masters to her former work. “It's pretty cool to know you're out here running around and hustlin' and bustlin' and you're not only performing songs you wrote, but you also own the masters to those songs,” she added.

“I used to dream about that while being signed to a label,” Ciara admitted. “After a while, you kind of get frustrated with having to go through the same process when you believe in something, when you have a vision for it, but the person who makes the decisions doesn't share the same vision. When I got the chance, I actually wasn't even planning on doing it in that moment.”
