While Ciara appears to be prepping for the second leg of her North American Jackie Tour, her ex, rapper Future, appears to be prepping to take the singer to task on his next record.

“I was like absolutely,” Ciara told RollingStone magazine. I never thought to cover this song, but when the opportunity came along to work with Adrianna, I was like this would be an honor.”
