Kaci Battaglia - RETURNS WITH HIT SINGLE “BODY SHOTS” FEATURING LUDACRIS
August 26, 2010 – Returning with the party anthem of the summer, ever-glamorous KACI BATTAGLIA has done it again, following up her hit single “Crazy Possessive,” with yet another smash: “Body Shots” featuring super-star rapper LUDACRIS. Already exploding at radio and charting in clubs across the country, Kaci welcomes the reception with open arms, as she awaits the release of her aptly titled album “Bring It On” (Curb Records) on September 21st.
Based on a conversation that Kaci had had with some of her girlfriends right before her 21st birthday, “Body Shots’” sassy lyrics were penned by Battaglia, who has co-written all of the songs on her upcoming release. “I had been talking to some of my friends about what we were going to do when I turned 21,” Kaci explains “and they were pushing for me to try a body shot. Later that day, when we were in the studio, I decided to see if I could capture what that experience might be like in a song. It was really fun to write and it already goes down a storm when I perform it live!”
Kaci and Ludacris recently shot a music video for “Body Shots” which you can see here: http://bit.ly/a9lUeM. Battaglia says, “Ludacris and I had an incredible time shooting the clip with European director, Stephanie Pistel – working in studios in both New York and Miami. We took a very symbolic approach to the video and hope that we came up with something classy, fresh and fun.”
“Body Shots” was written by Kaci with long-time collaborators Michael Grant, Arianna Wilson, and Jarreau and Trevor Pitts. The song is the second release taken from her upcoming album ”Bring It On”. “Much like this new single, the album title came to me quite easily,” says Battaglia. “I was inspired by personal positivity and power. I am ready for anything that comes my way – and in fact, I can’t wait!”
Kaci had much success with her 2009 debut “Crazy Possessive” which she describes as “an electro-pop dance track with an edge - definitely aggressive, which fits the song, but a lot of fun. It is a strong topic with a positive message, and a lot of girls are able to relate to it.”
