Gwen Stefani and Ciara CD Reviews
Two of the hottest chicks in the music scene are back with their sophomore albums. Kidzworld takes a look at Ciara's The Evolution and Gwen Stefani's The Sweet Escape - get the reviews right here!
Ciara - The Evolution
Since her debut album, Goodies, Ciara went through a high profile relationship with rapper Bow Wow, became a household name and did a lot of growing up. The Evolution features 15 new tracks and five interludes from the princess of crunk, with appearances by some of the biggest names in the game. The album has some catchy tunes but Ciara should have done a better job at cutting out the mediocre songs on this disc cuz it doesn't live up to what we heard on Goodies.

Gwen Stefani - The Sweet Escape
