Ciara has landed her version of Beyonce Knowles' latest single "Diva". Ciara who thus becomes one of the major artists who decides to a cover another major artist's song, will include her remix version in the mixtape of her "Fantasy Ride" album.

While Beyonce is singing it as a diva named B, Ciara changes it to a diva named C. She sings on the hook, "I know you know about that diva diva named B. While I'm at it, I'mma tell ya 'bout this diva named C." Rumor has it, this cover has got Ciara in trouble since there had been reportedly no stamp of approval from Beyonce and her label when it leaked.

Ciara's "Diva" is set to be included in a mixtape that serves as the prequel to her third studio album "Fantasy Ride". The mixtape will also include a collaboration with 50 Cent and is due to hit the stores in January. Meanwhile, the new album is scheduled to be dropped on January 27 while its single "Never Ever" will be released on January 5.

"Diva" is a single included in Beyonce Knowles' new album "I Am...Sasha Fierce". Its music video was released earlier this month, along with that for another single "Halo".

Hey, what's wrong with y'all? I don't know what's the problem in here. Beyonce made Diva than Ciara made the cover. Once I heard an interview where Cici said that she's got a lot of respect for Beyonce and that she's a fan of B. And that shit about B bein' mad about that is just bullshit. Both of them have their own styles and they keep doing their thangs. So get off of them.

1st off yea B is in a league of her own. But I did like CiCi version of Diva. B voice is stronger were as CiCi voice is softer. 2nd B didn't write Diva so therefore CiCi didn't take nothing from her. And it's not a diss song because she mention B in her version. 3rd B new album suck!

Beyonce kind of rip offed Ciara's Like A Boy song (with If I Were A Boy). I just wished she would've left it at that and not put her own spin on one of Beyonce's songs. I like Ciara more as a person. She is more down to Earth. Beyonce let her head get too big a long time ago.
posted by misscmonet on Jan 20, 2009
OMG!!!! There will NEVER be another "B" sorry! So people should not waste there time even trying... 4real! Including Ciara. Not saying that she's tryna clone my Beyonce but, they have totally different styles. Ciara is not even classified under "diva" she more of a ride or die, down 4 u type of chick, u feel me? Their music have always had different feels & vibes. Truth be told Beyonce is 4eva #1 & Ciara ain't even #2, Rihanna is!! She may be #3 or #4 & that may be pushing it! She's talented don't get me wrong but, that's jus keeping real!!!

I like Ciara's version better. She has that hood swag that Bey doesn't have. Ci murdered that beat!
posted by jazzyslim on Jan 06, 2009
after reading many of these comments it's seem beyonce fans feeling ciara on B *** if you no your favor artist is the queen,diva,the best however you wanna put it what is the problem. do not put down other artist ciara sound like she own this song great job baby girl!!!
posted by tee on Jan 06, 2009
beyonce and ciara are both beautiful artists beyonce did her thang BUT ciara was on fire... with this song the way this song is it's more of a hood girl version of a diva the way ciara rapped with it. ciara is young what is up with all this hate it's just a remix.
posted by josie on Jan 05, 2009
there's a queen called Beyonce, one & only! As the Diva's lyrics's goin': "Take it to another level no passengers on my plane" and the ciara's rmx is perfect example, nobody's better than B, nobody's Beyonce!!

I loves it! Keep it coming CiCi. Her voice fits this and actually makes the song believable. Bey's just sounds fake and overly done.....
posted by amie on Dec 31, 2008
She improved this song IMMENSELY! This version I'll actually download and listen to. I can't even tolerate Beyonce's.
posted by Lanol on Dec 31, 2008
Absolutely love it. Go 'head Cici, you turned it out. Now, the difference between the two songs? Ciara did it with class, sauve, and an attractive voice. Beyonce sounds like a man.
posted by REG\'SWIFEY on Dec 31, 2008
WTF! I LIKE BOTH B AND C. SO I MEAN IT IS WHAT IT IS. IT WAS NICE TO SEE CICI STEP UP AND LET THE WORLD KNOW SHE WILL GET AT A B**** QUEEN OR NOT RESPECT THAT GIRLS GANGSTA!!!

THERE IS ONLY 1 QEEN IN THE WORLD AND THAT IS BEYONCE..EVERY 1 KNOWS THAT CIARA IS NOT IN BEYONCES LEVEL...AND IT WILL BE VERY HARD FOR HER TO REACH BEYONCES LEVEL OR TO BE LIKE BEYONCE...

posted by Sharie on Dec 31, 2008
I'm more of a Ciara fan than Beyonce. But even though Beyonce owned it, it's not like Ci was trying to prove a thing so y u pple hatin'? Stop comparing them!

um diva named "B" her album sucked ass and there was only four alright songs on her album including diva but I think that Ciara did her thing on the remix what she had to say (if you listened to the words)actually made more sense than Beyonce's. Thats the truth.
