Ciara fans have a nice treat to kick off their Fourth of July weekend -- the singer's new self-titled album is now streaming for free on iTunes.

"Ciara" will arrive in stores on July 9, but is available to hear in full, through next week.

Ciara will also release two video snippets from a series of five tracks off of the new project, reports the Wall Street Journal.

"I did video snippets of many of the songs on the album for my fans so they can have the best experience of my music possible," explains Ciara. "I wanted my fans to see the music for the first time while they are also hearing it."

"Ciara" will be the singer's fifth studio album. Her single "Body Party" recently topped the Urban Mainstream airplay chart.
