Ciara Update

Published: Tuesday 9th Dec 2008 by Sam
Ciara UpdateWith several canned release dates and a ‘buzz’ single struggling to chart, speculation had been mounting that Ciara’s third studio album ‘Fantasy Ride’ had been shelved.
However, the 23 year old recently confirmed in an interview with NBA Arena that the album is still scheduled for release an early 2009 (there have been murmurings of a March 2nd date).
Speaking more on the record, she confirmed that she just wrapped up recording sessions with Justin Timberlake last week, the output of which she described as being ‘crazy’. Also featured on the album, which she and ‘Single Ladies’ producer Tricky Stewart have executive produced, are Missy Elliott, Young Jeezy among others. {Source}
Despite all the initial mishaps surrounding the album, I definitely still see it possible for her to do big things with this project. One look at the ‘Go Girl’ video as well as the production / feature credits lets you know her label are really financially behind the project, hence flopping is a no-no. If Chris Brown was able to turn around what was nearly a flop sophomore effort with ‘Exclusive’ (See: ‘Wall to Wall’), there’s no reason why Ciara won’t do the same. Here’s hoping she delivers the goods.

Are you still checking for ‘Fantasy Ride’?

    Ciara will have an awesome album. Go Girl was a hot song and a great video but the timing was a bit off for it because she dropped it too late when she hadn’t finished the album.

    Looking forward to Fantasy Ride.:)

    haha. you know if you don’t have haters you’re a nobody.

    anyway, yes i’m sick of waiting but i’m still checking for it. the chrisbrown second album comparison was on point. jive knows what they are doing. as for go girl, i have a feeling it was intended as a buzz single only. they put out a video and didn’t promote it. not tv performances or nothing. i don’t think they tried to chart it. just putting something out there while she finish up. because of the leaks they just had her record new songs.

    i cant wait till the album hit stores cause its gonna be hot

    For the record, CB’s album was never gonna flop. I believe the only reason “Wall To Wall” didn’t do well, because it was never available for download and Chris leaked it himself.

    But back to Ciara: Hopefully she changes some stuff around and comes with something new because I stopped being a fan in ’05-’06 because all of her stuff started sounding the same to me. “Go Girl” wasn’t single material either.

    i agree chris brown album almost flop but he turn it around and the same for ciara

  12. Anonymous December 9, 2008

    IMO Chris Brown’s album is still a flop from the cover art on down lol

    but anyway, lookin forward to Ciara. I haven’t been disappointed yet. Plus she’s a sweet and down to earth person. She needs to let that alter ego thing go tho. It looked desperate when Beyonce did it (yes it did) and she shouldn’t resort to that. She already has made a name for herself as being a crunk girl, why add a “crunk alter ego”?

    I love that Ciara song “I’m on.” It’s supposed to be on Fantasy Ride. I love Ciara’s uptempo stuff. She’s good on midtempo and slow songs too but “Go Girl” was garbage. I love CiCi, so I can’t wait til her album comes out. I look forward to the performances.

    BY NOW WOULD YOU THINK THAT THE ARTIST LABESL KNOW NOT TO PUSH ANY ARTIST OF THERE LABEL WHEN .B. SEASON IS IN EFFECT…IT ALWAYS ABOUT .B. AND I KNEW THEY WAS GOING TO PUSH CIARA CD BACK WHEN I HEARD IT AROUND THE TIME .B. WAS COMING OUT

    Yes the person who mentioned Chris Brown’s “Wall To Wall,” not being released as a digital download was right. But that was on his record label and they should have been smarter, all first singles need to be digital downloads. Hell all singles need to be digital downloads. When “Glamorous,” was a single and the decided to take off the song as a DL to boost album sales it went down on the charts too, but they were smart and changed their idea before the singles peak period ended.
    “Go Girl,” from the start WAS expected to be the first single. All artists’ singles which are made into videos were intended singles; whether they become hot or not. Otherwise record labels would just solicit them to radio, and not create an expensive music video for it. Just like how Keri Hilson’s people are trying to say that “Return The Favor,” [which I really like the demo version of…] wasn’t the album’s second single. Saying “Turnin’ Me On,” now is. Nope to me if the label goes as far as dropping tons of money for a video, especially as they did for “Go Girl,” it was intended as a single.
    I am not looking toward Ciara’s album. I bought ‘The Evolution: of Ciara’ and it wasn’t a bad CD at all, but she just doesn’t have the same buzz that she used to. I didn’t even like “High Price,” that opera style singing was trash, doesn’t have the voice to make something like that cool AT ALL! Maybe it’s the age that is turning me away from her music. Kinda like the Crunk style worked better when she was 19, rather than what isn’t she 23 now. So the only way for Ciara to engage me again in her music is for her to release a bangin’ NEW (2nd) single from the album. And please don’t try to come with some “Promise,” wannabe type of single, highly doubt that will work again.

    Also, for Ciara to try to make up a alter ego named Super C is extraordinarily lame, like c’mon there were better names than that. Somebody had said it sounded like a Gas Station, and they were right (LMAO!)

    i love the video and the song… it wasn’t all that bad and i rellly want her next album

  20. katebozz December 9, 2008

    I think Ciara will be find. Yall should go listen to Explode on youtube. Its really good.

    And I think the record company pulled go girl and wanted to go in a different direction or somethin because even though they paid $$$ for the video, they didn’t promote it at all. I barely heard it on the radio In order to hear it I had to go online, and I LIVE IN ATLANTA.

    I AM STILL WAITING FOR THE ALBUM I WAS KINDA SAD TO HEAR THAT THE ALBUM WAS GETTING SHELVED. THAT ONLY HAPPENS TO ARTIST THAT DON’T HAVE A CARRER LIKE CIARA. LOOKS LIKE THE RECORD COMPANY IS GIVING UP ON HER IF THEY SHELVING HER

  22. Corey December 10, 2008

    Sam Heres another Video Ciara did it dropped Yesterday talk more about Fantasy Ride artwork and more stuff!

    I have inside sources and I already knew it wasnt being shelved that was a joke! The video alone did wonders so even if the single did drop label still had faith in Ciara and know she will deliver. Expect more things coming from Ciara in next 2 and half weeks. New singles from Her and Her and Enrique single/video will all drop around January. Ciara is going hard and expect 09 be a great year for Ciara!
