  22. Alex July 9, 2010

    BORING
    wont sell more than 100,000 if shes lucky

    this is why some ppl dont make it in showbiz, they arent innovative enough, I can tell by this album cover that it will not do too well.

  23. NICE! July 9, 2010

    @ALEX LISTEN YOU BUFFOON! You know for a fact that album cover is nice!

  24. Brandy 4ever July 9, 2010

  31. S*** July 9, 2010

    Nothing special but Its a hell of a lot better than that Fantasy Flop cover. But I still doubt it’ll sell or be any better than her other half baked albums. 500K at the most when Its all said & done.

  32. Freelandmeis July 9, 2010

    Ciara even took it back with the album cover. The font of her name is the same as Goodies

  33. S*** July 9, 2010

    LOL @ bjksolo

    I know your not talking, atleast we dont go scouring around the net STEALING PPL’s Pic & try to pass it off as ourselves. Is that Pharrel or soulja Boi- either way hes ugly so your not the one to talk.

    & I hope you werent talking about BDB cause I think that Pic of Bey is FLAWLESS, To me It says “Whos the Queen??” so IDK why yall think its ugly. & as for me, I have a s*** load of beautiful pics saved on my PC, I like this Pic of Bey & that other pic of Nas & I use it for a reason.

    You already know my persona on here which is why I use a un-flattering pic of Bey. Shes actually looking down on all your Favs in Shame.

  34. ~TeAM WeeZY~ July 9, 2010

    It’s cute. Not sure if it’s album cover material, but still nice. And yes, this is better than that atrocity “Fantasy Ride” album cover.

  35. S*** July 9, 2010

    @ Brandy 4ever

    & your idol has been irrelevant since aloooooong time ago so whats your point??

  36. rob July 9, 2010

  41. raraskils July 9, 2010

    FLOP. the idea for the cover looks dated.
    and wteff at that half-hooped earring? that aint cute.
    girl needs to kno if she wanna sell records she needa do a full body shot for the cover. cuz lord knows she aint selling it based on her face and deff not her vocals.

  42. bjksolo July 9, 2010

  44. Daddy July 9, 2010

    Whaaaat? Are they serious with that cover album?

    Man, we are in 2010, not 1997.

    You guys mentioned Aaliyah, but If she would still be there, she would take it to another level.

    Really Basic cover. Hope the music will save the rest.

  45. Greg July 9, 2010

    LUV IT SO BEAUTIFUL AND SIMPLE…GORGEOUS

  46. S*** July 9, 2010

    @ bjksolo

    Either way, your ugly & for one your on here wayyy more than I am. What happened to that cute little red bone you stole? ur obviously gay if you knew he was cute enough to use as a gravatar to dispel the rumor that you look like a damn gorrilla that got murcked by Flavor Flav.

  49. DNATL July 9, 2010

    Beautiful album cover…. but it does remind me of Aaliyah.. admit it ..she has inherited the Throne and no one fits Better.
    Congratulations Ciara on your hit “Ride”

  53. royalkev July 9, 2010

    @Bjksolo LOL, True some pics of Bey on here do look kind of interesting. I still just find the beauty in the girl, after all it’s still Queen B. My B, NEVER EVER take a bad pic… We still boys tho!

  54. ARTIST K July 9, 2010

    NICE AND SIMPLE BUT I WISH SHE DIDN’T HIDE HER FACE! I GOT YOU FIRST WEEK CICI!

  55. BENJAMIN July 9, 2010

    Looks a little cheap, like they took this from a still from the “Ride It” video. Label couldn’t have coughed up some money for a real photoshoot? Ah well, I’ll still check it out.

  56. MUSIC LOVER July 9, 2010

    It’s a simple cover, so I’m not really wowed by it. I love her cheekbones! The picture that RAWR linked us to would have been a better cover. I was expecting a full body shot in show dance pose so I’m slightly disappointed. I’m just happy she’s releasing her stuff to get her publicity going! =D

  57. ~TeAM WeeZY~ July 9, 2010

    Why don’t people like @BeyDaBess’s gravatar? I LOVE it! I think it’s from one of her “Single Ladies” performances when she does the part —- “WHERE MY RING AT?” Not sure though but I LOVE it!

  58. nic July 9, 2010

    @WeeZY
    naw shes performing freakum dress from the beyonce experince

  59. Tavi July 9, 2010

  60. mindgames July 9, 2010

    basic indeed

  61. ~AalexisR~ The Summer King (The Bahamas) July 9, 2010

    @Lostonez

    She does not look like Aaliyah…

    Stop right there. The hair does look similar but that’s it…

  62. ~AalexisR~ The Summer King (The Bahamas) July 9, 2010

    Oh and I saw a better album cover fan made on Youtube…

  63. Jamie July 9, 2010

    It’s definitely an eye catcher. Job well done to whoever did the cover.

  64. яəCONSTʁUCT THA ⓘNdUSTRYy;; July 9, 2010

    I mean i really don’t see the big hype???? Nothing special at all yes its much better than “Fantasy Ride” but everything about this album juss seems recycled like all the other garbage out there… I mean give me a break! This album is most likely not going to revive her career like “Circus” did for Spears or “Private Dancer” did for Tina Turner. The truth of the matter is Ciara lacks originality. & this is coming from a EX-fan. I don’t dislike her but her music does absolutely NOTHING for me anymore. “Ride” is FLOPTASTIC & is so annoying I feel like i could have a CI-zure! Plus its being marketed to her same fan base a bunch of s**-crazed teens and its influencing children to become that way… Next best thing, PLEEZ stand up!

  65. GangsterA July 9, 2010

    Cici looks nice any one notice that pepole dont call out ciara for hiding one eye.wearing robat outtfis.rolling on the ground with weird pose.throwing the rock sign but they call out pepole like beyonce and s*** double standrs much

  66. Modjo July 9, 2010

    floppppp dono why but she is making a good music but poor production i guess …

  67. RosaRubbel July 9, 2010

    Simply beautiful & fierce. I want ‘Basic Instinct’ NOW.!!!’ Go Ciara.!’

  68. ADE July 9, 2010

    Big improvement on the Fantasy Ride cover! That s*** was ugly as hell!!!!!!!!!

  69. TLuvCi July 9, 2010

    i love it… and i love how she use the old font from the goodies & evolution era well she did take it back 2 the basic…. lol any ways must the same negative ppl always cmnt on a ciara post why waste yo time.. smdh yall are truly sad.. ride is doing great 4 a song that is charting based off of airplay and no promo.. yall stuck in Fantasyride era move on cuz we sure have god bless 😉

  70. annon July 9, 2010

  72. Kearx July 9, 2010

    I like it

  73. remmy July 9, 2010

    I didn’t know Aaliyah had an unreleased album coming out…who knew:/

  74. яəCONSTʁUCT THA ⓘNdUSTRYy;; July 9, 2010

    This looks as if it was snacthed from an old photoshoot of Aaliyah’s past.. .SMDH

  75. яəCONSTʁUCT THA ⓘNdUSTRYy;; July 9, 2010

    She needs to take Paula Abdul’s technique and become a world-renown choreographer… I still like her but she just doing the same stuff

  76. Gagalove4honeyB July 9, 2010

    love the cover very hot

  77. Outta this world!!!!!!!!!!!! July 9, 2010

    Hmm it has to grow on me… but she’s very pretty.

  78. sadness………. July 10, 2010

    one word…..illuminati….her soul has been taken. she wants fame so bad she sold her soul like the rest of them. she won’t get any of my money

  79. Anne July 10, 2010

    I just could not imagine why an album cover garnered so many comments. Personally I think the pic is pretty but plain for an album cover. BUT IT DOESN’T REALLY MATTER

  80. Anne July 10, 2010

    (Submitted last comment too soon). As I was saying, it’s what’s in the album that really counts not what’s on the cover. As for the song “Ride,” it is slowing moving up the charts so looks like it’s too soon to label it a flop. Number 5 on the R&B chart and number 50 on the Hot 100 chart though is not yet good enough to rule out the possibility of it flopping. We’ll see… if any Beyonce song peaked around 50 on the Hot 100 chart it’s considered a flop and the same goes for Ciara. More importantly “Ride” is not a late release from an already successful album; it’s especially important that the lead song for an album peak much higher. For her sake “Ride” needs to rise a lot higher in order to help her avoid an album flop in August, no matter what the cover looks like.

  81. LAKEE July 10, 2010

    I’m diggin’ it! but i’m still confused as to why folks keep talkin’ about how Ciara is all HOLLYWOOD when she’s the only R&B b**** that hasn’t gone BLOND to sell albums!

  82. JonathanGardnerTV July 11, 2010

    Ewww? People seriously like this…looks like a simple single cover. Surely she can come harder than this…

  83. AmerCi July 13, 2010

    WOOOOOOOOOW Cici is about killl the R&B music charts (in europe) Love ya honey haters die on my di*k!!!

  85. Chris Jones July 24, 2010

    I think the cover is AMAZING! I can’t wait til it comes out. I LOVE CIARA! For all the haters that’s just sitting on here commenting about the flaws of her, is just making yourself look lame while she is make money unlike yall. Yall are just dumb bloggers, I have one question WHO ARE YALL? Ciara’s ride is TOP 5 on itunes so eat that.. Keep your head up Ciara. I’m your #1 fan forever.

    CICI ALLLL DAYY. ATL is where it’s at! 🙂
