Ciara Set To Unleash Her ‘Basic Instinct’

Published: Tuesday 13th Apr 2010 by Sam

As anticipation for Ciara’s new material reaches fever-pitch, the sultry songstress has revealed that her forthcoming LP is titled ‘Basic Instinct’.

Revealing the news at the premiere for Chris Rock’s ‘Death at a Funeral’ last night in LA, the singer added that the album is “even more sensual, confident, and cocky…in a fun way”. The record was executive produced by the 24 year old, and hitmakers The-Dream & Tricky Stweart.

‘Basic Instinct’, which will be preceded by first single ‘Ride (ft. Ludacris)’, is due in stores this summer.

——————————————————

Great title; probably one of the best I’ve heard in a while. One can imagine it’ll refer to the singer re-engaging with her earlier sound – a point both Ciara and the album’s producers have commented on previously. Now, if only ‘Ride’ would hurry up and drop!

But fact is…reguraless of what you may say or think about Ciara…y’all are curious as hell to see what she will do this go around. Weather you’re here to see if she flops or tops….point is…your still HERE! I can’t wait to see what this girl does. Ciara always keeps US…yes! I said US. And when I say US…I mean US as in the PRESS and the PRESSED! Ciara always keeps YOU wantin’ and wonderin’…

  9. tbabytha1 April 13, 2010

  10. Goodies4thaHoodies April 13, 2010

    After all these years people still call Ciara a man…*SMH* anyway…love the album title and I can’t wait to hear ‘Ride It’ in full.

  11. ADE April 13, 2010

    @ JRNB14
    LMAO @ “HEara” ive never seen that one before!! but Ci-ERROR still kills me 😀

  12. James April 13, 2010

    GODARA owns you all thats why you in her thread checking for her, q*****!

  13. MassiveShawn April 13, 2010

    Even though I don’t care much from Ciara im excited for this Album because I honestly don’t know why but I am.

  14. Sarah April 13, 2010

    Calling people names is so childish. How pathetic this world has turned into! ANYWAYS……I can’t wait for the new album to drop after hearing a snippet of Ride I’m really excited for this album.

  15. MADONNA April 13, 2010

    Ci Ci…betta make this summer hawt! I really hope she brings something a little different this time round. Rihanna is a good example of someone who has experimented with her sound. i think this is what C-Error needs to do to put back at the top of the charts.

    ps: C-Error did the lady gaga look in her ‘Go Girl’ video before lady gaga was lady gaga.

    pps: Basi Instinct is one of my favorite movies….Love this title!

  16. April 13, 2010

    love the title

    by the way i think artists get more innovative with their titles…thank god…so tired of the “i am”‘s and “as i am” and all that stuff…think i have 4 albums on my itunes which are called “i am”

  17. ADE April 13, 2010

    dead @ calling her a “sultry songstress” though Sam, everyone knows her vocals are very limited lol anyway I’m kinda eager to hear what she comes out with

  18. Pucci April 13, 2010

    Hmm, interesting. Can’t wait to hear what she delivers with this album!!!

  19. amentheking April 13, 2010

    i hope the alBum do great cause if the new ish flop she will Be consider as a flop artist and hope they dont leak it cause that will hurt the sell

  20. LovinMyBreezy April 13, 2010

    Ciara is going to ROCK OUT! *screams* Can’t wait…

  21. Christian April 13, 2010

    Go Ciara! Fantasy Ride wasn’t her best although it did have some gems(Like A Surgeon), looking forward to the new album, and luckily for her she’s not dropping at the same time as Beyonce or Alicia Keys and should be able to demand a lot of attention.

  22. Gumaro April 13, 2010

    YES!! SLAYYY!! I cannot wait to be bumpin this album everyday to work! YASSSS

  23. Rob April 13, 2010

    Hey folks, it’s almost the middle of April which means the music industry is reviewing the sales of their top artists. Here are the top selling albums in the world in 2010 as of April 9, 2010 and the breakdown of sales follow
    1 Lady Gaga The Fame + The Fame Monster 2,503,000 albums
    (200,000 sold in 2008 + 5,914,000 sold in 2009 gives a grand total of 8,617,000, expect it to reach 10 million by June. It is notable that the separate The Fame Monster EP is not included in this figure, the US accounted for 36% of the total sales and 21% in the UK, and therefore Lady Gaga can be termed Mega Star).

    2 Lady Antebellum Need You Now 1,733,000 albums
    (Grand total of 1,733,000 as it was released in 2010, the group is only known in the US though as it accounts for 95% of its sales).

    3 Sade Soldier of Love 1,711,000 albums
    (Grand total of 1,711,000 also released in 2010, 62% of its sales were from the US).

    4 Susan Boyle I Dreamed A Dream 1,637,000 albums
    (Add this to 6 million sold in 2009 for a total of 7,637,000, Susan sold 48% of her albums in the US and nearly 25% in the UK).

    5 The Black Eye Peas The E.N.D. 1,556,000 albums
    (The Peas sold 4,600,000 albums in 2009 for a total of 6,156,000 call that a Boom Boom Pow, of their total sales, the US accounted for 39% while it sold 30% of its total in the UK )

    6 Alicia Keys The Element of Freedom 1,384,000 albums
    (Sales after a December 2009 release were 1,030,000 for grand total of 2,414,000 for the piano lady; nearly 50% and 20% of the total was sold in the U.S and UK respectively.

    7 Michael Bublé Crazy Love 1,080,000 albums
    (Unknown in the urban audience but has sold 3,300,000 in 2009 for a grand total of 4,380,000 with only 1 single. Talk about a mega star. The US and UK both account for over 30% each of the album sales).

    8 Ke$ha Animal 907,000 albums
    (Its grand total is the same 907,000 as it was released in 2010. 60% of the album was sold in the U.S)

    9 Justin Beiber My World 2.0 884,000 albums
    (Yes in only 2 weeks, I expect it to sell well. 65% of sales come from the US)

    10 Rihanna Rated R 850,000 albums
    (1,019,000 albums were sold in 2009 as well for a grand total of 1,869,000. Rihanna sold 43% of her album in the US with the UK accounting for over 25%).

    11 Michael Jackson This Is It 803,000 albums
    (The icon sold 3,100,000 albums in 2009 after only 2 months of availability, its grand total now stand sat 3,903,000; expect it to reach 4 million by the first week in May).

    12 Taylor Swift Fearless 780,000 albums
    (Add this to 4,200,000 in 2009 and 2,200,000 in 2008 for a grand total of 7,180,000. Of this total 80% was sold in the US).

    Also Beyoncé sold 2,300,000 in 2008 and 3,200,000 and 543,000 albums in 2010, a grand total of 6,043,000, the US accounted for 46% of the album’s total sales and the UK claiming over 20%

    At the end of June when half the year has past expect many milestones. Lady Gaga will reach the 4 million mark (10 million in total) with Lady Antebellum and Sade at the 2.6 million mark. The Black Eye Peas will follow at 2.5 million (7.1 million total). Michael Bublé, Justin Beiber and Susan Boyle will range from 2 million to 2.2 million. (Michael would reach 5 million and Susan 8 million). Alicia will be at the 1.8 million mark (reaching nearly 3 million) while Ke$ha and Rihanna will approach 1.5 million (Rihanna will reach 2.5 million). Usher will be at 1.3 million. You guys do not have to believe me but hey I will see you in July.

    Reviewing the list you can see that Lady Gaga and The Black Eye peas are doing well because dance pop is selling by the truckload. That is why I think Pink was robbed at the Grammys for the pop album category she lost to BEP. Their album should be considered dance. Anyways that too explains why Ke$ha is selling. R&b is not doing a well as it use to. Rap dropped off the map.

    Now let us take a look at the United States of America. Here are the top selling albums in the US as of April 4 and beside it are their total sales in the US
    1 Lady Antebellum Need You Now 1,648,000 – (1,648,000 was relea
    sed in 2010).

    2 Sade Soldier of Love 1,055,500 – (1,055,500 was released in 2010).

    3 Lady Gaga The Fame+ The Fame Monster 761,000 – (3,100,000 this include 1,658,000 of The Fame and 1,442,000 of the expanded version).

    4 Black Eye Peas The E.N.D 599,800 – (grand total of 2,386,800 of which 1,787,000 were sold in 2009).

    5 Susan Boyle I Dreamed A Dream 577,000- (grand total of 3,681,000 of which 3,104,000 were sold in 2009).

    6 Justin Beiber My World 2.0 574,000 – (574,000 released 2 weeks ago may end up in the top 3 by year end).

    7 Ke$ha Animal 545,800 – (545,800 released in 2010 may reach 1 million by September based on the consistency of its sales).

    8 Taylor Swift Fearless 431,000 – (grand total of 5,760,000 of this 2,112,000 was sold in 2008 and 3,217,000 in 2009 and still selling. It will reach the 6 million mark by mid-August).

    9 Alicia Keys The Element of Freedom 415,000 (1,194,000 this is poor showing by Alicia but even big stars are finding it hard to sell in this industry, of this 779,000 was sold in 2009).

    10 Mary J Blige Stronger 332,000- (grand total of 726,100 include the 394,000 she sold in 2009 I honestly thought this would be platinum but oh well).

    11Usher Raymond vs. Raymond 330,000 – (330,000 it is hard to predict this album, I had to include him)

    I am not sure where Rihanna is but she has sold 298000 in 2010 + 499000 in 2009 for a total of 797,000 in total sales; expect it to sell 1 million by the beginning of June). A honourable mention is Trey Songz who sold 208,4000 copies of his Ready cd in 2010 and 438,400 in 2009 for a total of 647,200 he is really trying hard).

    For all the Beyoncé fans her album is at 2.8 million in total sales with 1,459,000 sold in 2008 and 1,199,800 sold in 2009 with just over 150,000 sold in 2010, I don’t expect it to reach 3 million).

    I will do a follow up in July when half the year has gone if u guys want me to. As a person who loves R&B looking at both lists Sade, Alicia Keys, Usher and Rihanna are representing. Hopefully Monica’s album will do well and continue to sell consistently. My prediction is that Justin Beiber will move to number 2 by mid year. He is just 482000 copies behind Sade who is currently at number 2 but his sales projection has him at 1.5 million by July and Sade at 1.4 million but we will see. I also expect Usher, Rihanna and Mary J Blige to sell 1 million in my next update. Go R&B.

    The second quarter includes April, May and July and with April almost over and no major releases expected from urban acts in May except Toni Braxton (go cop that May 4) the charts look boring. However, June looks to be the BIG BANG with releases from Christina Aguilera and Drake on the 8th and 15th respectively. We may get 3 more albums in June from Ciara, Kelly Rowland and Jennifer Lopez (slated for June 29th). As I said don’t expect any new entries in the top 10. I expect Sade to slide down to number 3, Lady Gaga to slide to number4, Usher to jump to number 5.

    Anyone in the UK who has access to their chart can post figures.

  36. Hboss April 13, 2010

    SASHA – you are so right whe you said P!NK got robbed at the Grammys for the pop album category. I also consider BEP “The E.N.D.” to be a dance record not a POP record.

    I cant wait for Kelly Rowland and Kelis album. I also cant wait for Alexandra Burke album “Overcome” the US version (they say it would be better than UK version).

  37. Dave April 13, 2010

    JRNB14
    U punched, u betta speak on the truth. Regardless y’all check for her. He said songstress for a reason. He didn’t say POWERHOUSE, Do your research, & Ciara has close to 3 octaves, & over it u included exclamation notes. I don’t see where the limited is.

  38. RoyalAce April 13, 2010

    I’mma need Movieman, Rob, BeyDaBest and any other hatin’ ass limp wristed f*** 2 STFU and take ya asses down 2 the welfare. Y’all b****** can sit in the library and type all the nonsense u want, but @ the end of the day, Ciara will ALWAYS make more money in a week than u gutter b*** b****** will make in ya whole grimey pathetic lifetime. Y’all b****** can stay mad cuz Ciara is internationally known and u mutts will just be known as the black necked h*** from down the block! Stay F*****’ Mad!

  41. Pucci April 13, 2010

    @BEYDABESS (DA REAL ONE),

    Do i always have to remind you that the same things you say about Ciara can be said about Beyonce… didn’t she wear a white suit with a long white jacket just like Sharon did in her one of her movies? But you wanna sit here & poke @ a damn album title???? Get a f****** life, you are so pathetic, just snatching straws from everywhere. Sharon Stone wasn’t the only one in that movie dumbass, btw, so was Michael Douglas! You would know that if your ass wasn’t so far up Beyonce’s ass to pay attention to anything else.

    @Rob

    You’re such a moron… There was no official word that the single would premiere on April 12th, not from CIARA herself or HER LABEL or anybody in her camp. It was the fans’ murmurings going around that set that date. The label knew nothing about it, but DUMBASS haters like yourself never get your facts straight before popping off with untrue s***!!!! Secondly, you’re a guy sitting @ your computer hating on a chick you barely even know over the internet. How f****** sad is that????

  42. BEYDABESS (DA REAL ONE) April 13, 2010

    DANG I WUNDA IF CI-ERRRROR GONNA KEEP SHOWIN HER CROTCH OR DO DAT TIRED A** MATRIX MOVE.

  44. dizz April 13, 2010

    I actually think this era will be better than the Fantasy Ride era. With Fantasy Ride High Price leaked b4 the release date & they went with Go Girl (mind you) they were releasing singles b4 the album was actually DONE, which is why the album kept gettting pushed back. They brung out Go Girl (which was picked by the label, not Ciara) it was doing well at radio there was absolutely NO PROMOTION for Go Girl at all bcuz they expected it to sell off of Ciara’s name alone. They gave up on Go Girl & pushed the album back. (mind you) the album still wasn’t done & in the mist of all of this, the singles were steadily leaking left & ride. They had to go BACK in the studio & record some new tracks. (mind you) the album still wasn’t DONE & The album was pushed back AGAIN & all of this was goin on while she was in the process of switching management so they leaked her material out of spite, but they still decided to bring out Never Ever. Never Ever, which wasn’t much of a splash for Ciara because again (it wasn’t properly promoted bcuz they expected it to sell off her name alone)..Then they brung out Love S** Magic which did VERY well world wide, by the time Love S** Magic came out, Never Ever was beginning to pick up steam on radio & it peaked around the same time Love S** Magic did…Never Ever or Love S** Magix wasn’t properly promoted UNTIL the first & second week of releasing Fantasy Ride & when Fantasy Ride came out it had nothing but leaked tracks on it & i’m sure everybody heard all the songs already so what’s the point of buying an album that has leaked a year ago????..EXACTALY there is no point…with this album its totally different bcuz EVERYTHING has been planned & thought out from singles to videos..NOTHING has leaked except 2 songs & i’m sure the label leaked them to get buzz & more excitement about the album, which they did. There’s more anticipation for this album bcuz some ppl wanna see if she’s gonna fail or succeed. I think she will be fine. I feel as though the label knows wha their doin. They are certain about what direction she’s goin in & they are sure about the singles which is why they shot videos b4 they sent them to radio bcuz they are cnfident about them. I hear alot of talk about RIDE, ppl are anticipating it, even non-Ciara fans are feeling it. I feel that she WILL get her urban fans back & she will do good bcuz she & her label/management have learned from their mistakes…sooooo good luck Ciara..I’m on board for “Basic Instinct”

  45. David April 13, 2010

    I love u Ciara and I can’t wait for the single

  46. RATED x April 13, 2010

    @ JoWork – It would be nice if you could keep your mouth and font closed. Surprises are meant to be enjoyed. Just because you know something doesn’t mean you have to say something.
