Bow Wow’s co-workers wasted little time addressing the elephant in the room during Monday night’s episode of 106 & Park (April 23). Letting out a very candid, yet humorous “Awwwwwwkward!” denoting Bow Wow and Ciara’s past relationship, the crew opened up with an interesting precursor of the tension to come.
Although Bow Wow greeted his former girlfriend with smiles, positivity and composure, the audience both on stage and in front of the computer screen pointed at the uneasiness radiating from the couch, as Bow Wow interviewed Ciara. Not to mention, the “Body Party” singer’s current love interest Future was lurking in the audience… again: Awwwwkward!
Nevertheless, Ciara kept her poise and looked all too ravishing in all black as she delved into matters surrounding the world premiere of “Body Party” and upcoming self-titled LP, Ciara. Check her out in living color. Question: Who else thought Ciara was bad a** in her new video?!
Mr. 106th & Park himself, Bow Wow, who is now signed with Cash Money Records, joins forces again with his former mentor, Snoop Doog, which whom he credits for his namesake.
The two collaborate together on the new track, “Grown Ass Money,” produced by araabMUZIK. The record serves as the latest offering from Bow Wow’s upcoming mixtape, Greenlight 5, which is slated to drop online March 9th.
The mixtape boast guest appearance from a host of rap A-lister, including Lil’ Wayne, Rick Ross, Kendrick Lamar, Gucci Mane, Tyga and friend and collaborator Omarion. Keep it locked to CL for the tape March 9th!
