Ciara’s ‘Body Party’ Blazes Billboard Hot 100 / Becomes Her Biggest Hit In 3 Years

Published: Thursday 2nd May 2013 by Sam

Ciara is making quite the statement with new single ‘Body Party’.

The sizzling Mike Will production has been burning up the net and airwaves, and more rapidly so since its accompanying video was unwrapped two weeks ago.

And with streaming now a more prominent component of chart positions (as well as the song holding its own on iTunes), it appears this is benefitting the 27-year-old in earnest. For, ‘Party’ has made quite the splash on this week’s Billboard Hot 100 tally.

Details below…

Set to be published later today, this week’s tally positions ‘Body Party’ at #35.

Not only does the figure represent the highest new entry this week, it becomes the Atlanta-bred beauty’s biggest hit since 2010’s ‘Ride’ (which, for all its Urban success, peaked at #42 on the mainstream chart).

Commercially speaking, ‘Party’ -to a degree – also becomes Ciara’s biggest hit since 2009’s ‘Love, Sex, Magic’, which peaked at #10 on the Hot 100.

Can it achieve the same success as the Justin Timberlake assisted cut and climb into the top 10? Time will tell. What does feel certain, though, is that Ciara’s stock is re-rocketing and we couldn’t be happier for her. Especially given the boost the song now gives its parent album ‘Ciara’ ahead of its July 9th release. {Source}

    Go head Ciara gurl. I can’t even shade you…the song is hot. 🙂

    • JARED (WHITE DUDE) May 2, 2013

      Hey Hun…

      Have you been on Billboard and read the Hot-100 countdown for this week.

      Rihanna’s ‘Stay’ is #1 on Radio songs and is back at #3 on the main chart… Statistics say that ‘Stay’ could reach #1 in the next 2 weeks or so, beating out Mackelmore.

      OMG!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

      • Navy Sailor!!! May 2, 2013

        Hey babe! Yessss yesss yesss!!! Come for that 13th #1!!

        I’m so happy that she is slaying with ballads this era! Rih is silencing all of the naysayers!!! 😀

      • Likica May 2, 2013

        Even if she doesn’t get it, it doesn’t matter. The song is selling like crazy, it’s already at 2.5 million in the USA and it made a great impact in such a short time, I mean it had so many covers by far.

      • JARED (WHITE DUDE) May 2, 2013

        @Navy Sailor/Likica…

        YES.

        But, hopefully, she does get it!!!

        That song is, most definitely, one of the defining ballads of her career; ‘Take a Bow’ ‘Unfaithful’, ‘Russian Roulette’ & ‘California King Bed’ are good but ‘Stay’ is excellent.

        IT DESERVES TO GO #1. If not, I hope Pink stays at #1 instead, for a long time. 😉

      • Ballsy May 2, 2013

        STAY will be Number one trust. I’m buying it for everyone’s birthday present plus a Hard copy of UNA.. Just wait!

    • ,. May 2, 2013

      Congratz to her i really love to see stuff like this,she deserve it.

  2. CIARA-BEY-RI May 2, 2013

    CONGRATS TO CIARA…SHE DESERVES IT…WISHING HER THE BEST AND IM SURE THE REVAMP OF HER ALBUM ‘CIARA’ WILL BE A HIT FOR HER…LETS JUST HOPE HER MANAGER LISA GETS THE PROMO GOING…

    • MuiMui May 2, 2013

      Love Ciara’s song and wishes her the best with her new music and love her dancing she know how to work her beautiful model body.

    • good luck CiCi May 2, 2013

      I dont think u can blame mgt if this fails. It is all about Ciara’s DRIVE & WORK ETHIC & Epic Records marketing/promo campaign.

      Ciara’s album is due in July.

      She should already be performing this song on TV.

      CIARA should have asked her manager to book her some shows.

      She got an album coming out and she aint doin NO SUMMER JAMS around the country??

      She aint doing Essence Festival?? WTF ??

      Dont blame mgt this time… Ciara has been in this business for yrs now.

      I wish her luck but she has to want it.

  3. KING RIH May 2, 2013

    its doing good on the hot 100, but i hate to burst a few bubbles.

    On urban radio, this song is only at number 20. Kworb.net/radio

    WIll this be as big of a urban hit as ride? Probably NOT.

    F*** you Ciara for not putting “Sorry” on the album.

    B****

    • Ballsy May 2, 2013

      La Reid should send Rihanna a cheque. His lil scheme worked

    • what?Calm down May 2, 2013

      UMMM. you know you can just buy the single for like a dollar, right? Calm down

  4. Likica May 2, 2013

    Congratulations, I\m happy because of her, wish her all the best with new album! 😉

    • that’s my jam May 2, 2013

      I wish her the best too but
      the song is FALLING down the charts now because LAZY CIARA aint out there promoting her ish. lol

  5. Vidiii May 2, 2013

    SLAYYYY!
    Now already over 5.5 Million Views on youtube!
    For Ciara is that great news! 😀

    • MuiMui May 2, 2013

      This is great news she shows a lot of promise this time around.

    • that’s my jam May 2, 2013

      Yeah but what is Epic gone do to ride the wave of the success? Nothing.

  6. JARED (WHITE DUDE) May 2, 2013

    Congratulations Ciara…

    Even though this song reminds me, heavily, of Janet Jackson’s ‘Would You Mind’, it’s still one of the most refreshing R&B songs I’ve heard in a while; this, Usher’s ‘Climax’ and Fantasia’s ‘Lose To Win’.

    Hopefully it’ll reach the top-20/10 etc… KEEP PROMOTING IT!!!

    🙂 🙂 🙂

  7. Likica May 2, 2013

    Btw, did you guys see how Mariah bashed Nicki on Idol? It’s about your fav Samantha, feel free to post it! 😉

    • Navy Sailor!!! May 2, 2013

    I LIVE THIS FRAUD IS BEING EXPOSED YASSS.

    • Likica May 2, 2013

      • HOTSTUFF May 2, 2013

      • Likica May 2, 2013

        Yeah gurl, I know. I was at her concert when she came in Belgrade in 2007. Too bad she doesn’t have dates in Serbia on this tour :/
        I just found this performance. The crowd goes crazy about her all the time, they scream during the whole performance ^^

      • HOTSTUFF May 2, 2013

        @ likica

      • HOTSTUFF May 2, 2013

        LOL! i was hesitating between posting the sos performance in australia or the one u posted !! she slayed !!
        During the Loud era she got tired vocally and when she was nearly at the end of wrapping up more than 90 shows, she did Rock in Rio, and jingo bell ball, which were not that great, she was tired….But the haters are pressed.

      • MuiMui May 2, 2013

        Rihanna’s Catalog is on fiyah and burning up and has did every flip in the history of chart making and no one not even the Queen Beyonce can take that away from her ever.

      • Ballsy May 2, 2013

        I went to 2 DWT so far and I want to make sure that I get to her London concert when I visit . Hoping to scalp a ticket!

      • Ballsy May 2, 2013

  17. Carl May 2, 2013

    These Rihanna fans are rude lol, how can they just be conversing so confidently on a Ciara post about Rihanna’s possible 13th #1 single lmao. So rude lol. Anyway congrats Ciara, hopefully they capitalize of the initial reception towards the song and get her booked to perform the song on an array of tv shows now that its already debuted in the top 40. I’m happy people are finally taking interest in Ciara, ROLL ON WITH THE SECOND SINGLE sometime before the album girl!!

  18. Neigh-Neigh Leakes May 2, 2013

    Wow, congrats Cici!
    She’s worked so hard to try to make a comeback. This really makes me wonder how well she can do if she releases a more commercial/mainstream song.

  26. Love. May 2, 2013

    I’m proud of Ciara. I knew she’d do it. I’ve supported the hell out of her lol. As far as Beyonce’ next single… What don’t y’all see? She’s touring and performing to regain interest and to ensure that when she DOES drop the single (more than likely after her tour) her fans will go crazy for it and she’ll once again sit pretty on top. Even I could see through all the smoke and mirrors of her tricks. And I’m also happy to see Rhianna doing her thing. Back to Ciara tho, #35? Girl… Next time I turn my tv on I better see yo ass on somebody stage on yo back with them legs in the air! Perform to secure your spot! Even I got a feeling she’s gonna let it slip.. For one reason or another she and her team has a tendency of slacking..

  27. Navy Sailor!!! May 2, 2013

    Kiii @ the C-Squad insulting Bey & Rih. Pleeeeaase keep it cute. 😆

    • Lemonade babe May 2, 2013

      Insulting bey and rih ? I seen you do it. To bey and one of your navy just came on a ciara post to insult bey! C-squad insulted rih cus they insulted ci! That’s things stans do

      • Navy Sailor!!! May 2, 2013

        What? I said the song is hot. I did not insult her.

  28. caribbean native May 2, 2013

    FLOP FLOP FLOPPITY FLOP

  29. opd2 May 2, 2013

    Congratz to her.

  30. Hive May 2, 2013

    Ciara stans are so wack it took them three years to get this b**** another top 40 hit smh pathetic i bet this is how far it will reach aswell the album will still flop won’t sell more than 30k

  31. Mark May 2, 2013

    Go CiCi! Navi, stop it, we know Rihanna shits out #1’s, but this is great for Ciara, it’s great for an R&B songs to crack the top 40. I been saying, she may be “flopping”, but she’s still top 5 if not top 3 in Urban music.

    • Mark111 May 2, 2013

      BTW, “We know that Rihanna shits out #1’s” as in it’s an easy feat for her, she wipe her ass with top 40’s.

  32. Peachy May 2, 2013

    The 37k squad has lost their damn minds lmao. Coming for the QUEEN and PRINCESS how dare you cuntz!!!

  33. Casual May 2, 2013

    Benefiting from the new Billboard Hot 100 formula which includes Youtube views. Good for her.

  34. iSpeakTruth May 2, 2013

    #CSquad ignorance knows no better we don’t involve ourselves with that now we got that hit lets worry bout this album and to those sayin her team sucks should stop she has new team n judging how tha song is just now growin on radio n it’s a top 40 hit u should kno her team has gotten stronger she has yet to have performances her single has been in tha itunes top 100 2wks now her album has been in killing with ore orders..either get on her wagon or let tha ish ride by

  35. SLAY_HIVE May 2, 2013

    SUPPORT this woman people! I will never deny TRUE talent! Her time is long over due! Will be buying this album!

    Sweet, talented, humble girl and she deserves to succeed unlike some other bxtch! But anyways good luck to her! 😉

    CSquad yall really need to keep it cute with the hive because believe it or not..a lot of support your girl! #ijs 🙂

  36. No words May 2, 2013

    I don’t know, getting to #35 by views is not really that good. I’m wondering if Billboard didn’t change it’s format where would this song be on the charts? This could be a good thing or bad. Some people just like her videos and will not buy the album. Ride and Love, s** and Magic did well on the charts also but sales were lousy. I don’t understand why she is dropping the album 2 months from now. She really has to stay in the spotlight and drop another song and do some appearances performing the song. Oh well good luck.

  37. Savannah May 2, 2013

    Ciara stans should be more humble #ijs, but ‘grats to her!

  38. No words May 2, 2013

    Reading some of these comments. Ciara fans should be cool with all the “slaying” “pulling wigs” mess, because y’all said that for the last couple of albums and look what happened….. Humiliation. I’m not even a fan of Ciara but i felt her humility with that last album sales. Try to be as “humble” as y’all claim your fave is.

  39. NΛVI May 2, 2013

    lol cute.

  40. D May 2, 2013

    Yes views do count and im sure that helps but it has been getting HEAVY AIR PLAY!I live in Houston and it’s rare that they play new songs and I RARELY hear Ciara.They have been playing Body Party out so im sure she’s gettin heavy airplay everywhere.

  41. JEFFFFFFFFFFF May 2, 2013

    The song is currently 8th on the R&B/HipHop Charts! That’s amazing! Hopefully that position will help her on the Hot 100!

  42. notadummy May 2, 2013

    NICE!! She should have never left ATL. She would have been way on top by now.

  43. Lisa May 2, 2013

    Finally, Ciara is back with true talent and the best dancer ever she is what I call real entertainment!

  44. POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) May 2, 2013

    Finally.

  45. LeviLovesCiara May 2, 2013

    Im so happy for Ciara!! Body Party is one of her best singles, well deserved. What’s even sweeter about this is that 1. This is a quality real R&B song and 2. There is no feature. The haters love to point out her biggest hits are with features. I hope Body Party continues to climb the charts. I remember how long it took Ride to climb the charts. It only moved like 2 spots a week lol.
