She hasn't released any music since 2015, but hip-hop singer Ciara has chosen Kiwi choreographer Parris Goebel to help her make a sizzling comeback.
In her latest video, 'Level Up', Ciara leads a series of flawlessly choreographed dance sequences backed up by New Zealand hip hop crew ReQuest.

Goebel took to Instagram to share the video, which she collaborated on as a director and choreographer for the Grammy-award winning artist.
"Thank you @ciara for being so sweet, hardworking and trusting me with your vision," she captioned a clip of the video.
"You killed this!!"
The Manurewa-born dancer went on to surprise followers by explaining that she also edited the video.
"How would you feel if I told you I directed, choreographed and edited it too," Goebel wrote.
Fans of Justin Bieber will recognise some of the phenomenal female dancers from his wildly popular 'Sorry' music video appearing once again in Ciara's squad.
Bieber had requested Parris' services for what was meant to be a lyric video for the song, but decided to make it the official video - which has now been viewed almost three billion times.
Goebel choreographed and directed the colourful video for the pop star almost three years ago, putting the dance crew front and centre on the world stage.
The 26-year-old has also worked with Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj and Jason Derulo, bringing her Kiwi dance troupe to stages and screens all over the world.
