Well it’s that time again! BET is doing their Notarized Top 100 Videos for the New Year & Ciara is nominated for “Best Dance Video” for “Gimmie Dat”. Make sure you vote so we can see our girl Ciara on the countdown!
Notarized premiers December 31 @11am/10c
congratz to Ciara. She slays everyone who is nominated. By th way i am ready for next single hopefully turn it up or yeah i know. Basic Instinct all the way.
HEY U GUYS..I HEARD ON TWITTER CIARA PUSHED 195K TO DATE..IS THIS TRUE
@Jwellz 195k on basic instinct???
i just voted a couple of times.especially for ciara gimme dat which i think was the best music video of 2010.
WHERE DID U GET THAT INFO FROM…CUZ I THINK ITS BOGUS @JWELLZ
SOMEONE ON TWITTER WAS SAYING THAT HOW MUCH ITS SOLD TO DATE..I`M TRYING TO FIGURE OUT IS THAT WW SALES OR WHAT..OR IS THIS EVEN TRUE
@Jwellz yup most likely thats world wide sells. im pretty sure the album has sold over 80k over all
basic instinct did 18 k copies its 2nd week =[
i wish “Listen to my Song” was a single i love that song. Much better than speechless IMO, @Jashee i wouldn’t worry about the sells. Ci’s gonna just have to come ALOT harder next time around, and be a little more creative as far as video’s. it’s crazy how ci is still the most talked about in blogs thats a good sign. atleast she’s not irrelevent, just isn’t sell. which sucks
She hasnt tweeted in 2 days and I dont like that one bit.
ikr and when she did tweet it was about her enemies and stuff
SHE MAY BE STILL ON VACATION WITH HER PEEPS
OR SHE MAY BE IN REHEARSALS FOR TURN IT UP
IT IS HER NEXT SINGLE AND SUPPOSED 2 BE RELEASED NEXT MONTH SO HOPEFULLY WE WILL GET MORE NEWS SOON
I HOPE SHE HASNT JUST GIVEN UP
it’s funny…what’s the point of releasin singles which wont be promoted….they all gonna end up outside the hot 100 n people r gonna doubt about her harder. mark my words!!! releasin singles which dont chart is a very bad advertising, mainly for an artist like ciara. i aint even excited about it. she promoted BI for 3 days n thats it. she just better get out there n try to do somethin instead of releasin multiple singles which dont chart cuz CHARTIN = MONEY = MORE FANS…kelly rowland is the typical example
HER SINGLES WERE NOT CHARTIN BECUZ THEY WERE NOT BEING PROMOTED RIDE WOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH HIGHER ON CHARTS HAD SHE BEEN SINGING THAT SONG ON TV AND AWARD SHOWS
GIMMIE DAT WAS RELEASED IN JULY BUT SENT 2 ITUNES IN LIKE NOVEMBER…THE VIDEO CAME OUT OCTOBER AND SHE ONLY PERFROMED IT 3 TIMES DURING HER RELEASE WEEK
JIVE MADE SURE THAT THIS ALBUM WOULD FLOP WHICH IS WHY THEY PUSHED IT BACK FROM AUG TO DEC…CUZ THEY SAW THAT SHE HAD HYPE OFF OF RIDE…
I JUST HOPE CIARA IS ALRIGHT AT THE END OF THE DAY AND TURN IT UP WILL DO GOOD CUZ USHER IS ON IT AND JIVE WILL BE FUNDING IT
I was jus thinkin what if Ciara suprises us tonight. Im sure she’s gonna be somewhere. Hopefully she performs turn it up on 106 & party
@king15 lol we’ll c. i already heard such things b4. at the end it was the same damn result. if she happens to chart (i only wish her the best), people will b like usher gave her a hit. she better get evrythin together cuz it’s a mess. there’s no cohesion n she cant keep goin like that. so now jive decides which single is gonna flop or do good???? sorry but i cant buy that story. n for ciara, people dont care about what’s goin on btwn jive n her. if she aint shittin, pple will think she’s irrelevant n thats it.
@JODY…WHO SAID ANYTHING BOUT JIVE DECIDED WHICH SINGLES FLOP OR NOT…JIVE DIDNT EVEN PAY FOR THAT ALBUM SO THEY HAD NO SAY
HOW THEY DID HELD HER BACK FROM ALOT OF THINGS SUCH AS PROMOTIN THE SONGS…PERFORMING THE SONGS..THINGS LIKE THAT
WE ALREADY KNOW THAT JIVE FUCKED OVER HER AND HER DUMB ASS MGMT ASWELL
I BEEN SAYIN ITS PARTIALLY HER OWN FAULT SHE SHOULD HAVE BEEN VOCAL ABOUT WHAT SHE WANTS 2 DO INSTEAD OF BEING TOLD WHAT 2 DO
I STAND BY MY COMMENT JIVE SET HER UP 2 FLOP…WHY WOULD U RELEASE A SONG IN THE SUMMER…MAKE THE VIDEO IN THE FALL…AND RELEASE TO ITUNES DAMN NEAR WINTER TIME…CIARA WAS HELD BACK THIS ALBUM SHOULD HAVE AT LEAST GON GOLD JIVE JUST DID NOT WANT THIS ALBUM FROM THE GET GO SO THEY SABOTAGE HER PLUS SHE DIDN’T EVEN DO THINGS SHE SAID SHE WAS GONNA DO…FOR INSTANCE SHE SAID THE DATE WOULD NOT CHANGE IT DID TWICE….AUG 24TH…AUG 17TH…TO DEC 14TH….SHE DID NOT DO HER PRE ALBUM TOUR….NO MIXTAPE…SO ALL IN ALL THE ALBUM DID BETTER THAN IT SHOULD HAVE BEING THAT SHE HAD NO PROMO…SHE WASTED A FEW MILLIONS BUT SHE BETTER GET INTO SUM MOVIES AND ENDORSEMENTS 2 GET IT BACK
TURN IT UP NEXT MONTH CI….HATERS FALL BACK
Gimmie dat was 59 on noterized. Shouldve been in top 10
@ king15, lol do u think the fact that u gettin mad, callin me a hater (someone i aint) is gonna help ciara??? i really aint here to argue n i dont think im a ciara hater cuz i bought her album while i illegaly downloaded rihanna, beyonce, keri, kanye, neyo, nicki albums..i bought her album cuz she needed support. i only wish her the best n i dont think spendin my time bein delusional is gonna help her. this is exactly like the fantasy ride era n as i said in my previous comment, all u sayin i heard it b4. i can even google ur words, there’re chances i find some comments which match what u just said. it’s about bein real.cuz she’s decreasing. the money they use to fund expensive videos could b used to promote the songs.
it’s funny cuz i have the feelin that next month, when she releases her new single, the excuse is gonna b, “ohh turn it up, ddnt do well, cuz gaga released her new single, so did britney, so did rihanna, then beyonce came with a smash hit”…people just dont trust ciara anymore, i dont hate her, i only wish her the best n i fight for her on blogs, but the fact that i stan for her doesnt prevent me from bein real n true. please stop wearin rose colored glasses. she better use that money, n get out there n perform gimmie dat, speechless, ride. she’s one the greatest female performers, so she better make people compare her to beyonce again. she cant rely on singles anymore cuz that rihanna bitch is gonna kill her on that game. ciara’s a hardcore artist. she has a lot of energy (she sings, jumps, moves, dances, runs, on stage). the only female artists who have such energy are gaga n beyonce (but ciara is by far the greatest dancer). the problem is people dont check for her anymore…the only way to get back on top is to perform LIVE. people just dont buy albums n music the way they did 2 or 3 years ago.
instead of releasin multiple singles (+ expensive videos) which wont be bought, she better go simple, she better use part of the money they wanna spend on releasin the single with usher to get out there n perform that song. life’s just a game n it’s all about havin the right strategy.
I ONLY LOVE CIARA THIS IS WHY I ONLY TELL HER THE TRUTH….PROOF IS BASIC INSTINCT CHARTED PRETTY WELL OUTSIDE US WHERE SHE DDNT PERFORM ANY SONG. mark my words
ALL U SAYING IS BULLSHIT CUZ CLEARLY U DID NOT SEE THE FACT THAT I SAID CIARA FUNDED ALL THOSE THINGS HERSELF OUT OF HER POCKET…
JIVE WILL FUND TURN IT UP WHICH MEANS THEY WILL PUT UP ALL THE MONEY FOR PROMOTION/PERFORMANCES…I AM NOT DELUSIONAL
I WILL BE THE FIRST 2 SAY WHEN I DONT LIKE SUM10 LIKE THE FACT I DONT LIKE SHE LOST ALL THAT WEIGHT AND DOESNT EVEN HAVE A MODELING CONTRACT ANYMORE….OR THAT BASIC INSTINCT WAS PUSHED BACK AND SHE SAID NOTHIN…SHE CHOSE WRONG SINGLES AGAIN…SHE DID NOT DELIVER LIKE SHE CLAIMS SHE DID
CIARA IS NO WHERE NEAR PERFECT AT THE END OF THE DAY EVEN IF CIARA DOES LEAVE JIVE AND GO 2 ANOTHA LABEL SHE WILL STILL NEED 2 SPEAK UP 4 HERSELF
SHE NEED 2 GET INTO MOVIES….TV SHOWS…ENDORSEMENTS….HER OWN LINES OF STUFF
CIARA SHOULD BE WHERE RIHANNA AND BEYONCE ARE NOT TRYIN 2 REACH THAT STAR CUZ THE LONGER SHE PLAY NICE AND HUSH….THE MORE PEOPLE GON PUSH HER RIGHT IN ASHANTI CATEGORY
ohh n how do u know she funded evrythin? tell me where n when she stated such things! n then all im sayin is bullshit. future will tell us whos sayin bullshit
CIARA WILL BE JUST FINE..GOD HAS A PLAN FOR HER IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY..TRUST..& I`M STARTING TO THINK THAT HER LABEL SHOULDN’T RELEASE “TURN IT UP” AS THE NEXT SINGLE BECAUSE ITS GONNA DO THE SAME THING “GIMME DAT” DID..HER TEAM & LABEL WAIT TIL THE SONG LEAK ON THE INTERNET THEN 2 MONTHS LATER DECIDE TO GIVE IT SINGLE TREATMENT KNOWING THAT THE HYPE FOR THE SONG HAS DIED DOWN..CIARA SHOULD GO WITH “YEAH I KNOW” IT IS BETTER RADIO FRIENDLY THAN “TURN IT UP” U CAN ONLY PLAY THAT ON POP STATIONS..
“GIMME DAT” LEAK IN JULY & EITHER 1 OR 2 WEEKS AFTER THAT IT DEBUT ON POP RADIO CHARTS..DIDN’T RECEIVE SINGLE TREATMENT UNTIL OCTOBER & WAITED UNTIL DECEMBER FOR THE FIRST TELEVISED PERFORMANCE..THEY WAITED UNTIL THE HYPE DIED DOWN
“TURN IT UP” LEAK IN NOVEMBER..& JUST BECAUSE USHER IS ON DOESN’T MEAN ITS GOING TO BE A HIT..& THEY ARE GOING TO WAIT UNTIL JANUARY TIL GIVE IT SINGLE TREATMENT..& JUST BECAUSE ITS THE MOST POPULAR SONG DOWNLOAD FROM “BASIC INSTINCT” ON ITUNES DOESN’T MEAN ANYTHING EITHER
THEY NEED TO GO WITH “YEAH I KNOW” MORE PEOPLE LIKE IT THAN “TURN IT UP” & IT WILL GAIN HER URBAN/HARDCORE FAN BASE ATTENTION BACK ONCE AGAIN..& ITS THE MOST SONG I PLAY ON THE CD LOL
JODY….GTF OBVIOUSLY U BEEN UNDER A ROCK CIARA EVEN SAID SHE WISH SHE COULD TELL US WHATS REALLY GOIN ON BEHIND THE SCENES ALSO THE FACT THAT JIVE ISN’T EVEN ON THE BACK OF THE CD
NOR IS JIVE ON ANY PROMO SUCH AS VIDEOS IT SAYS LAFACE/JLG
I agree Jwellz that I dont think ‘Turn it up’ is gonna do that well just becuz Usher on it or cuz its the next most popular on itunes…They probably mostly got that cuz they saw Usher on it…but if u look at the vote on here of the songs with Ciara OWN FANS…look what songs are more popular than that….alot of her fans say that dont like that song that much or it had to grow on them…and I actually agree…I mean its cool…but same reason people aint like Fantasy Ride so much as in sells and talked about it so much was becuz she took a more ‘pop’ sound with it…eventho I did really still liked that album as well tho…but people are used of seeing and liking Ciara more urban/r&b….its like their not used of her tryna crossover and they give her hell for it they dont like it thats why she wanted to go back to basics for this album cuz she felt her fans wanted her to go back with that…thats why i dont know about that as next single…plus as jwellz said its not really radio friendly besides pop stations cuz it wont really be popular on urban stations I dont think…plus not really a club banger to dance to all like that…if u listen to it its not really a dancing song like to get down like that and how u know Ciara dance…I personally think she should go with ‘You Can get it’ ‘Wants for dinner’ or ‘Yeah I know’ as next single…they more fit Ciara…& look at the song votes…those what her fans are really feeling more…so thats what she should go with it makes sense alot of people thats not even big fans like them songs….plus I can see the video for them being crazy and the dancing…Now I can see if they still gonna do ‘Turn it Up’ if they gonna make an EPIC video her & Usher on some Janet/MJ Scream type thing then yeah but u know how much that Scream video costed??…I know Jive aint tryna give her that much budget to make anything epic smh….Which brings me to yes I’m very pissed with her label and management…I really think and agree that they setted her up to fail wit this album and I dont know why they would do that cuz they missed out on money on their own…So like the rumor has it I think it may be something really DEEPER than that going on behind scenes with them and Ciara….them pushbacks hurted her ALOT and not gettin ANY REAL promo or budget for things hurted her bad also plus I really believe that did really undershipped her album by ALOT according to so many people saying her album still not in stores while everyone elses is or if it is its only literally a FEW copies so how can she sale SMH its sad…I really feel bad and dont think its right but I’m sending my best wishes to Ciara and may Godbless her…hopefully next album she get her situation together and maybe this will really be just a learning experience for her to do what she have to do after seeing what happened last album Fantasy Ride and now Basic Instinct she will grow pass this…She a great sweet humble person and a GREAT ENTERTAINER/PERFORMER with GREAT music!!! so God is gonna see her thru and give her the success she deserves even if it dont happen wit this album….EVERYTHING happens for a reason…she will be alright….but eventho I’m still PISSED at her label and management and this industry and all her haters smh LOL
Okay, where is Ciara now? It’s like she disapeared..
What is she working on? what’s next? Is she just gone?
I agree, I can’t stop playing yeah i know. I wish that they could release both tracks. Yeah I Know for urben, turn it up for pop, and then finish out with an R&B song like i run it or youi can get it. But they decided on turn it up, before seeing digital sales, cuz on the commercial, it says including gimmie dat, turn it up, and ride. Anyway, i heard turn it up in a store when i was shopping the day after christmas.
HAPPY NEW YEAR #TEAMCIARA!!
I wonder where Ci is………
LMAO i aint been under a rock i been under a bed, now the fact that s.o says “she wished she could share with people what really happened behind the scenes” is a meaning of havin no support. it could b true, perhaps. but should we really care about that part? if so, we should perhaps wonder why they ddnt back up that project. it aint about pity or feelings here, its about business, we aint in a church. people dont care about that part. once again proof is : people never cared to know wether kelly rowland and all the other destiny’s child members were treated wrong or right by matthew. time flies n the industry is movin 4wrd. btw, who’s talkin about the fact she funded the project with her own money. no1 cares about it. if she thinks she aint ready, she better not do things n that’s it. she could have used the money she gained with “ride” to promote it a lil bit more. she could have sung speechless in NY, TX, AUSTralia, instead of playin goodies or like a boy… she really better get it together cuz now she’s a D-lister while she used to be a A-lister. n releasin multiple (useless) singles wont help her. people will just take it as a confirmation that she aint relevant. she really better get everythin together, have a solid schedule before makin further apearances. gaga, beyonce, britney, rihanna, kanye, nicki r comin with with solid projects. i hope she has the right strategy . i hope she get out there n sees how other artists do, like alicia keys per example, she stepped her game up after totterin for 3 or a couple of years. G:):)d luck Ci
i dont get it. People wanted Ciara to get back to her Urban roots but it wasnt good for them. what do [people want damn. Ciara should just make great music if you are riding with her then do it if not well thats you. what i would suggest is for Ciara not to say she doing A, B when she wont do it.Ciara aint suppose to respond to these haters on twitter, she is too qualified to waste her time on losers. she didnt promote this album. I’m a fan but she aint at a stage where she can just release somethiing and just expect it to sell without doing anything. BI can be a smash in the long run if promoted . if they give up on this it will just end up like FR. As for a new label will they take her after 2 albums that have under-performed. i dont know.
she should release 2 or 3 singles and promote them like crazy. if the sales increase keep doing it. if not next album. She should work with new producers too not the ones that everyone is using for something fresh unless the old producers are very good..
lets just hope this new year has great things in store for Ci and us her fans.
