Ciara and Future have been openly discussing their relationship.
Now they're acting it out.
The couple meet, greet and share intimate time in Ciara's sensual "Body Party" video.
Ciara and Future check each other out in the clip's opening scenes, which take place at a nighttime mansion party.
Then, as Ciara wraps up a poolside conversation with a friend, Future appears and introduces himself before the video switches to a steamy striptease scene in which Ciara writhes seductively in black lingerie for a cigar-puffing, multiple gold chain-sporting Future.
But that was all in Future's imagination, as the video returns to the scene at the pool.
Future then tells Ciara, "You know you're gonna be mine, right?"
"Oh, is that right?" she replies. "How you know?"
"I saw it," he says confidently. "They don't call me the Future for no reason."
Long-time Ciara collaborator Ludacris makes a Kool-Aid smile-filled cameo in the video.
Trinidad James also appears in the clip, a precursor to Ciara's fifth album, which is due June 4.
