Taking to his Instagram Story on Wednesday (April 12), the Virgina-bred singer announced that he and the “Goodies” singer have something in the works, although it’s yet to be confirmed if it’s new music.
In the past, the two artists planned to perform a Michael Jackson tribute at the 2022 AMAs, but it was cancelled at the last minute.
It’s unclear when Chris Brown will drop the collab, but it’s expected to arrive soon. “Me and Ciara got some [fire emojis] coming soon,” he wrote on his Instagram story.

Fans may be excited by the news, but collaborating with Breezy can sometimes spawn controversy. Chlöe Bailey was met with major backlash, so it’s unclear what the response will be to the news about his upcoming track with CiCi.
Lil Dicky, however, hinted that he doesn’t regret his collaboration with Chris Brown on 2018’s “Freaky Friday.”
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Lil Dicky said he stands by his decision to work with Chris Brown, despite criticism.
“I love that song. I still love that song. It went to No. 1 in multiple nations, and without that song, I don’t know that I could have made [a charity single] like ‘Earth,’ where I raised, like, $3million [to fight against climate change],” he told THR.
According to the Pennsylvania native, he does not take the criticism personally since he knows that his heart is “good.”
He continued: “I know that my heart is good. I really do. I don’t lose sleep at night about my heart. And you can never be perfect, and sometimes I’ll still be dumb and unaware, but I really do care so much about doing the right thing.”
The rapper and comedian added: “And listen, I get why someone wouldn’t like a Lil Dicky song, but I’d never be ok with someone being like, ‘That guy’s an asshole,’ or ‘That guy’s a piece of shit.’ I’ve never had that experience as Dave Burd, the man, so for my art to cause that reaction, my God, it really hurts me.”
