    you can entertin him all day long,but i know what he wants for dinner

  5. Deontae November 30, 2010

    These snippets convinced me…I am excited for this album. Although as a fan I did expect more, I love a lot of song off this album. I must admit, I did expect so much more for Ciara…but I think these songs from the snippets does the album some justice. I just wished Ciara challenged her vocal ability a bit more and calm it down with dance tracks

  6. Nichole November 30, 2010

    No thanks. Snippets do me no justice.

    I’ll probably listen to the full album, once it leaks.

  11. FUTURESTARdelux November 30, 2010

    This s*** has been dragged out for so long and with minimal promotion (so far) that i was over this album to be honest but there seem to be some hot tracks and the album as a whole sounds good.
    Ciara is gonna need to seriously get some promotion in and perform to get peoples attention to this though, if she just sits back and does nothing this will flop worse than “Fantasy Ride”, good luck Ciara x

  12. Joushua November 30, 2010

    6/11 songs were already released! WTF no one is checking for her.

  13. TEAMCICI November 30, 2010

    yess !! im loving it because shes actually outting out real r&b and not what people expect from her ! although 11 tracks is kind of dissapointing though…. *points fingers at her label*
    12/14/10 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lets gooooooooooo

  14. tones November 30, 2010

    I just listened to the snippets, I am very excited about this album. Both Heavy Rotation and Yeah I Know sound like they can be really big hits for Ciara. Basic Instinct in stores 12-14-10, #TeamCiara stand up.

  15. GROW UP PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! November 30, 2010

    I REALLY HOPE SHE DOES WELL SHE DOES NOT DESERVE ALL THE HATE SHE GETS. I THINK PEOPLE BEHIND MUSIC HAVE DONE SOME UNDERHANDED S*** TO HER (IMO)

  16. Lenny November 30, 2010

    Just 11 tracks but I like all of them. “Wants For Dinner”, “Heavy Rotation” and “Turn It Up” sounds great.
    Go Ciara, you deserve your success.

  17. Chinny November 30, 2010

    Is it me? Or do “Speechless” and “You Can Get It” sound like the same song?

  18. ATL November 30, 2010

    Wait
    wait
    wait
    wait
    wait

    Whr the hell is GET IT GIRL??????

  21. TresChic November 30, 2010

  22. royalkev November 30, 2010

    Ciara has done that Sh** again! Honestly, this girl hasn’t made a bad album yet! …and yes, that includes Fantasy Ride. I love the snippets (Heavy Rotation, Yeah, I Know and Wants for dinner stand out for me). I love her voice! This girl is so dope. Keep going hard Cici! 12.14, B.I. !!!!

  23. pinkpop November 30, 2010

  27. CORY November 30, 2010

    I DONT LIKE GIRLS GET YO MONEY NOR YEAH I KNOW TOO REPETITIVE IN THE CHORUS ESP GIRLS GET YO MONEY TOO BAD FANTASY RIDE DIDNT SELL WELL B/C THAT ALBUM WAS AHEAD OR HER TIME THAT WAS HER RHYTHM NATION NO LIE

  28. Steffon November 30, 2010

    I will definately hold my full judgement until I hear the album entirely, but as of right now im just not feeling it.

  29. Beysus Servant November 30, 2010

    @Jousha you dumb shitty power bottom…… “If no one is checking for her” How come you know how many songs where leaked, f*****?

  30. royalkev November 30, 2010

    I’m just so glad she delivered, this girl almost have as many haters as Bee. Keep it up Cici, when your post is filled with half of them then you made it!

  31. THEREALNICKY November 30, 2010

    CIARA WTF?!!!!!!

    IM SO PISSED AT HER ITS NOT EVEN FUNNY!!!!!

    YOU LEAVE OUT “GET IT GIRL” AND “SHUT EM UP” ?!!!!!!!!!!

    THERE ARE ONLY 3 SONGS THAT SEEM TO BE GOOD ASIDE FROM RIDE. *WALKS OFF*

  32. Mr.S** November 30, 2010

    Flop!!! Already . I hope this is her last cd. I kno Junior High School kids who can sing better than her. It all sounds like the same “Im a strong female and I want love” R&B crap.

    Janelle Monae honestly KILLS every artist to me. Her 18 track ArchAndroid Album was wayyyy better than this s***.

  33. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ November 30, 2010

    WOW! Not gonna lie, but the album sounds FIYAH! The production goes HARD! I wasn’t particularly sure about The Dream/Tricky doing the whole album, but they did the damn thing. It doesn’t sound as redundant as their other work. I just wish she had like 4 or 5 more songs since about 3-4 songs have already been released WAY before the album is released.

  34. MaRyanCarey November 30, 2010

    what celine dion songs do you have?

  35. ciarastan4 November 30, 2010

    @mr.s** die

  36. tae November 30, 2010

    @nicky
    some shady s*** popped off behind the scenes and she wasnt able to put shut em up on there and people would have complained if she put another leak track up there so its cool.

  37. 123456 November 30, 2010

    “That Grape Juice received our press copy ”

    LOL the wwy u wrote it, make it seem like TGJ received YOUR copy….like yall two diffrent poeple.

    WROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG

  38. Stacy November 30, 2010

    You can’t always judge from snippets but this album sounds like CiCi reached a happy medium between the pop “Goodies” Ciara and r&b “Evolution” Ciara.

    Wants for Dinner,Heavy Rotation, Yeah I Know, Turn It Up and I Runt It and of course Ride are my favs so far.

    I’m buying this. I think she found her center again.

  39. xedos November 30, 2010

    a bunch of delusional motherfvckers this album is garbage. its worst than fantasy ride
    Basic mess. ppl buy an album because it can stand on its own not because you stand for an artist.

  40. Marquis / Ciara STAN/FAN November 30, 2010

    WOW Basic instinct sounds sooooo GOOOOOODD!! i cant wait 4 the album 12-14-10- #TeamCiara . go get gimmie dat on itunes !

  41. Keylaine November 30, 2010

    Im disappointed they got rid of my fav song. The album as a whole is ok first listen certain songs stand out better than others. But after a few listens of the album its actually great it grows on you if you let it.

    I heard the album back when they were doing first round for press release and review for Music sites. And the final a few weeks ago… It is her best album but at the same time it feels like it is over produced but thats what happens when u work with Tricky and Dream for nearly every song.

    My personal order from Fav to least Fav is “Turn It Up”>>>>”Ride”>>>>”Yeah I Know”>>> “Gimmie Dat”>>>>”I Run It”>>>>”Wants For Dinner”>>>> “Heavy Rotation”>>>”Speechless”>>>”You Can Get It”>>>>”Girls Get Your Money”>>>>”Basic Instinct”

  42. Missy November 30, 2010

    After a quick listen she might have a problem choosing the next single because there are some strong radio songs on this, especially ‘Yeah I Know’ and ‘What He Wants For Dinner’.

    I know Jive being a typical record will probably push for the Usher track with a hot ass video.

    I wish she had more ballads like the unreleased songs Up & Down and Secret.

    No filler here – just good r&b and up tempo energy songs I can work out to lol
    Good job Ciara!

  43. Kyle November 30, 2010

    As much as I want to preview this I am gonna hold the excitement until it’s released. I think it was spoiled for her fans with her last album because 10 or 11 of the songs were leaked months before the release, but with this album I still haven’t like 6 or 7 of those songs. COME ON DECEMBER 14TH!!!!

  44. Keylaine November 30, 2010

    btw when yall get the album and listen to “Heavy Rotation” full out and “You Can Get It” I bet you would think the same thing I did….”Is that the same sub beat as Like A Surgeon?” I really hope this album does well because it is good but I hope next album she stays way from Tricky and Dream and her usual go to producers. She needs someone new and fresh Glad she worked with Soundz and Infinity and Mike Molina.

  45. Trina November 30, 2010

    If only B.I. had been released in august …

  46. tae November 30, 2010

    i agree it sounds like a very good album but i also have to agree she does not need to go to tricky and dream for the next but imma cop this it is sounding real nice

  47. Beyoncestan November 30, 2010

    “Ciara I was rooting for you ” Tyra voice “We were all rooting 4 you!”

    Maybe if she spent more time in the studio & less time trying to be a Kardashian she wouldnt be flopping all over the place. I use 2 be a stan now im just annoyed

  48. The One November 30, 2010

    LAMO, this girl cant sing to save her live!!! Its ashamed music has succumb to this level of lowness while real artist are out there, who don’t get played!! Whats an music ablum without a voice, some of you people are so ignorant until its almost laughable!! This generation is the most simple minded of all!! In a few years, we want have any artist other than these wanna be’s!!

  49. RosaRubbel November 30, 2010

    All these stupid Ciara fans were getting at me when I told y’all the tracklist is too short, because they were convinced it was fake and now? I’m a fan myself so I really don’t get it!
    We have already heard 6 out of 11 songs and the rest isn’t really groundbreaking to me. ‘Heavy Rotation’ sounds good, eventhough it has a dance vibe, ‘Yeah I Know’ is the best song to me so far & ‘Wants For Dinner’ and ‘Girls Get Your Money’ sound just plain stupid, btw the reggae influenced ‘Wants For Dinner’ doesn’t fit her, I think.
    BUT we’ll see on 14th December

  50. JAYLA November 30, 2010

    once again, F*** HATIN ON WOMEN, THATS ALL THIS SITE IS ABOUT

  51. tae November 30, 2010

    @jayla Amen!!!! i keep telling people the more they came out the more mess s*** has been.

  52. Robier November 30, 2010

    wow uhhhh not impressed

  53. RICAN_STAR November 30, 2010

    just gonna buy turn it up and rotation thank god for itunes and the creation of single purchases although i wish they were .99 again instead of the dammn 1.29

  54. love cic November 30, 2010

    cant wait. love the snipps

  55. SohhJavier November 30, 2010

    run it , and turn it up are favorites everything else besides the singles released so far are just album fillers

  56. ~AalexisR~ The Summer King (The Bahamas) November 30, 2010

    Sounds solid. I hope there is a Standard and Deluxe Version.

    Turn It Up is a single and so is Heavy Rotation… If she wants a top 10 she needs to release these. Wants For Dinner is s***.

  57. chile please! November 30, 2010

    I didn’t hear the snippets but i’m pretty sure the album is going to be garbage like the rest of her albums. I mean come on everybody ya’ll really blowing this non-singing chick up like she really can take you there with her voice. All this Wo-MAN can do is dance……….singing is not for her at ALL! The last album I copped from her was her first album & I didn’t even get the real CD……YES I copped the Bootleg & it was worth the whole $3!! Until she improves with her vocals I will not be a fan of this Matrix back bending (which is so played now) Dragqueen looking trick. Girl Bye! I swear ya’ll new generation of kids don’t understand what REAL SINGING is!

  58. chile please! November 30, 2010

    @ The ONE…………………….YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSS! I’m standing up clapping for at you for you comment. Yes teach these youngings & to all those reading this NO I’m NOT A OLD Head late 20’s……& I know what real music is & this Ci-error chick is not.

  59. MyGirlRiRi November 30, 2010

    Sounds wonderful! Im buying this for sure when it comes out. #TeamCiara 🙂

  60. royalkev November 30, 2010

    Looks like Cici haters are fulling up the room in here. I think we have a winner with B.I.! Congrats Ciara!

  61. TruegeminiErock November 30, 2010

    It REALLY irritates me when i see Ciara’s fan/stans saying negative things about the tracklists and the music……The WHOLE WORLD is already against Ciara she should atleast have the support of her fake ass stans…Damn!

  62. tae November 30, 2010

    @chileplease okay and that is your opinion many people knows ciara isnt a vocalist(not to say she cant sing just isnt a sanger) dumb ass we come to her because she is a great entarnier when we wanna hear vocalist we can go on youtube and if thats what you wanna hear rite now then i suggest you go to yutube and not a ciara post simple.but god bless you.

  63. TruegeminiErock November 30, 2010

    Ciara said she made this album for yall and if everybody wasn’t sooo consumed with comparing her style of music to Beyonce & Rihanna yall could actually appreciate what Ciara is offering. If Ciara sounded just like Beyonce and sung the same type of ballads that Bey sang…there would be no variety!!!! IMO

  64. latin86 November 30, 2010

    BASIC INSTINCT on the way ay

  65. ICON November 30, 2010

    What the hell.

    This s*** is dry. C-error should just stop. No one is interested beside her delusional stans on this website.

    There’s no hype for this album whatsoever.

    NEXT!

  66. Missimpartial November 30, 2010

    The album is average. Had her first but would not recommend to buy as her voice is monotone. She was way bigger than Rihanna but nowadays can not get a hit in the top 100.
    She needs to work with Jazze Pha to make the charts. All her songs are the same. She should a be huge now as she is an excellent performer but I think the man rumours destroyed her and she needs to address them and show us her baby pics if she wants to be successful again.

  67. Christian November 30, 2010

    I’m gonna wait til the album leaks to make my judgement because these snippets do me no justice. And it’s unfortunate 6 of these tracks has already LEAKED!!!! But I hope CICI does well.

  68. GangsterA November 30, 2010

    sounds hot can’t wait to get it

  69. The One November 30, 2010

    @ Tae none of what you wrote makes sense!!! You can’t see dance moves on an album, so how is it entertaining? How can you sang, but not be a vocalist? LOL your logic is ill!! If you want to see dance moves with no vocals, go watch “Americas best dance crew” or etc. I heard ciara in person with my own ears and she has no vocal talent at all! She is taking up space for true artist out there fighting for a deal!!! Its sad!! Like i said before music is at an all time low with this generation. Im in my 20s so its not an old thing. I music album sound always be about the voice, not dance moves! Guess you just dont have an ear for it, so you should purchase her album because like her it seems you just don’t know any better.

  70. ANSWER November 30, 2010

    GREAT EXCEPT HEAVY ROTATION WTF IS THAT!

  71. ester November 30, 2010

    I FUCKIIIIIIN LOOOOOOVE IT!!!

  72. Phoenix15 November 30, 2010

    Not impressed! 5 of the songs have already leaked and they are quite clearly the best ones…why should I buy the album? Basic Instinct’s going to be suffering the same (if not worse) as Fantasy Ride both for the same reasons -announcing that an album is ready before her label said it was! She needs to have consistant albums, she is well known for her urban up tempos and instead of giving us an album of mainly uptempos she serves up a boring mid-tempo album that she does not have the vocal capabilities to sell. How is she going to perform the entirity of this album live because I can’t see people being interested in anything other than what she’s already released as singles or leaked. Shame because she has the talent but whoever her A&R are need to get their act together!

  73. tae November 30, 2010

    @theone was i talking to you oh yeah rite and again if you dont like there is a youtube you are not needed hear you people need to learn how to appericate variety im glad everybody is not the same the s*** would be boring plain and simple if she is not your cup of tea dont waste your time on her dumass.

  74. Phoenix15 November 30, 2010

    Oh and why is she not working with Polow da Don? With Tricky and The-Dream doing the majority of the album there just isn’t enough variety both lyrically and sonically. I thought she had good relations with Polow, The Y’s, Danja and Darkchild all of whom have more than delivered for her and know her ‘sound’ so why did she not bring them in? Basic Instinct is sounding like nothing more than a Keri Hilson b-side….yep said it. Shame.

  75. Traci Summers November 30, 2010

    when U COMBINE RIDE.GIMMIE DAT , YOU GOT ME SPEECHLESS TOGETHER WITH THE ALBUM ITS ACTUALLY A GREAT ALBUM FROM CIARA. CUZ U GUYS ARENT FORGETTING THE SINGLES SHE RELEASED ARE ON THE ALBUM U PUT THEM 2GETHER U GOT URSELF AN ALBUM THAT IS DEFINTEILY BACK TO BASICS I STILL STAND BY THE FACT GET IT GIRL SHOUD BE ON THER ITS LIKE GOODIES PART 2

  76. _Bawse November 30, 2010

    @rihannaxoxo i would think as a blogger they would have to listen to Rihanna’s album…..how would that make them look if they stay clowing her and never heard her album

  77. jwellz10 November 30, 2010

    IM LOVIN THE SNIPPETS..IT HAS DONE ME A LIL BIT OF JUSTICE..AT FIRST I DIDN’T LIKE THE SNIPPETS OF “GIRL GET YOUR MONEY” UNTIL I HEARD THAT (ALWAYS WANNA HOLLA) PART I FELL IN LOVE WIT IT..”HEAVY ROTATION” UNTIL I HEARD THAT (TURN IT UP”..IF CIARA CHOOSES THE RIGHT SINGLES TO RELEASE FROM THE ALBUM SHE HAS NO PROBLEM..ME I WOULD PICK BETWEEN “YEAH I KNOW,WANTS FOR DINNER”,”GIRL GET YOUR MONEY”,”HEAVY ROTATION”..

  78. MrIncredible November 30, 2010

    Don’t like it.

  79. MrIncredible November 30, 2010

    Doesn’t seem much different from Fantasy Ride in the way of content.

  80. MrIncredible November 30, 2010

    Heavy Rotation sounds cute but thats about it.

  81. jaa November 30, 2010

    Cant wait to buy this album. Go CiCi

  82. tones November 30, 2010

    @ICON, obivously ur interested in the album if you posted on the article, duh

  83. CIARADABESS November 30, 2010

    YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS BEST ALBUM OF THE YEAR!

  84. TRY AGAIN November 30, 2010

    FLOP! FLOP! FLOP! AND FLOP!
    I called it and so did the nondelusional people on this blog. Already sending out press copies 2 weeks before release? Really?

    This will flop, and I will say it over and over again, and when Dec. 15’s predictions are in best believe all the C-Error stans will be hiding.

    GET READY H***!

  85. Leah November 30, 2010

    #1 If you dont like Ciara then y are you in here? im not evven a ciara stan and some ppl are pathetic! #2 the album sounds OKAY.. i dnt understand y ciara left out GET IT GIRL for girls get ur money! but the album sounds OKAY! ill wait til it LEAKS to judge and if i like ill buy

  86. True November 30, 2010

    I’m not happy with this album at all, i really though ciara was gonna bring it with this album because she was going back to the music she love rather than doing what’s trendy in the charts. but from what i heard she gone all the way back to her first album. the evolution has been her best album because it was ciara sound & you could hear what she was influenced by. but ever since that album she seem to be stuck making the same kinds of song with no growth. it’s a shame, i hate 10-11 track albums because i don’t think you get your money’s worth, your album has to have nonstop hits & timeless song like MJ Thriller to make me buy a 10 track album.
    I don’t know what producers she working with but she need to work with jazzy pha again because he seem to understand her sound. It would be nice to see her work with rich Harrison. If she want dance record that are trendy she could do a funky house track, neyo did closer which was a big hit.
    At time like this is when I miss aaliyah because she knew how to grow as a artist.

  87. Yellow Gorillah November 30, 2010

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmm..

    Ok The album Flows nicely but………..

    I’m sorry I just cannot I did not expect this

    WHERE IS JAZZY PHA! That is who she needs until she goes back to Jazzy and Missy she is irrelevant!!

    I’m still going to wait until the full album leaks (I am going to buy the album to support but) No

    I just feel like all the songs sound the same like somebody else said there is no variation

    Where the F*** is GET IT GIRL!! THAT WAS A BANGER IS SHE MAD LOOOOL NOO I JUST CANNOT..The album is solid I’m not going to lie but It’s not amazing I feel like if you have not been a ciara fan from the goodies era you would not buy this only her real fans are going to cop this I say she will sell about 70-90k! Maximum!

    LOUD ————–> BASIC INSTINCT (I dont even like Loud that much)

  88. CIARA BANGIN ON 106 AND PARK ALL WEEK November 30, 2010

    I love SPEECHLESS, BASIC INSTINCT, RIDE AND GIMME DAT. FANTASTIC CD. JUST NEEDS PROMOTION LIKE ALL HER GREAT WORK.

    basic instinct (you got me) was a promo, ride, gimmie dat & speechless were singles!
    dumb asssss

  96. Kenny November 30, 2010

    the album sounds good! I just think Ciara is being blacked balled in the industry, so no matter what she comes out with it will not be supported by industry.

  97. snatched! November 30, 2010

    B.I.: BASIC, INDEED.

    Yesssss CiCi!!!

    Honestly, I’m satisfied.

    If cutting the tracklist down to 11 songs means NO ALBUM FILLERS and great songs from beginning to end, then I’m happy.

    Great job Ciara, this album is hot from beginning to end.

  104. SLAY FOR CISUS/F*** RIHMODEL December 1, 2010

    @KELENDRIA ROWLAND
    Being a Kelly Stan i’d guess you know a FLOP when you hear it! So, since Kelly is CLEARLY so successful, does she have any words of advice for Cisus? Wait….does she even have a release date yet? Get back to me on that.

    LOVE everything but GGYM….that slot CLEARLY should have been for Get It Girl! Oh well. Ciara could release 3 songs and i’d still appreciate it.

    12.14.10…

  105. kiki10 December 1, 2010

    I personally think The Evolution is till Ciara’s best CD to date…. but BI snippets are pretty hot… I’ll def. be picking up a copy for the holidays… thnks Ci!!!!!

  106. Trina December 1, 2010

    Okay just listenned to the snippets a second time !! THIS WILL FLOP HARD !! NO HIT AT ALL IN THIS !! I’m so damn disappointed in Ciara !! B**** stop lickin’ Kim K’s p**** and focus on your FLOP ASS CAREER !!! —————-> dancing with the stars !!

  107. The F*** December 1, 2010

    Really don’t want to be mean to Ciara because I really do believe she got a raw deal (behind the scenes) this year.

    I like four songs on the album but that is just a matter of taste because I like more of an R&B feel whereas that joint she did with Usher was more UK house-sounding music to me. I haven’t liked house music since like 1994. Even then I could only stomach so much of it.

    I think the album is ok, it just was not promoted right. Probably due to internal bickering. I also think she should have worked with more producers.

    Maybe I’m blinded and just have a thing for people that perform well live. I love people that can KILL choreography.

  108. lala December 1, 2010

    I’ m so ready for this album to drop but every time it becomes close it drops back to another date. Like the last date, IDK maybe she want to make sure the material is good to avoid a decline in sells. I’ll still be the one to get it though.

  109. MUSIC LOVER December 1, 2010

    She will sell 50k MAX. 🙁 *sigh I was really rooting for her.

  110. Anonymous December 1, 2010

    Ciara ALWAYS has good songs on her albums she just needs better promotion and to cultivate a more solid fanbase.

  111. I can’t believe it December 1, 2010

    i TRULY BELIEVE ALL CIARA STANS ARE TONE DEAF LIKE HER. SHE CAN NOT SING MY GOODNESS!

  112. cocoa49 December 1, 2010

    Ciara is going to sell nicely. she has regained some of her fans back, me for one. i like what i hear. I am wishing her luck.

  113. CiaraLuvsBreezy December 1, 2010

    @Therealnicki they gave ‘Shut Em Up’ to J.Lewis

  114. ITS CALLED A LEAK FOR A REASON… December 1, 2010

    IF FOR THOSE WHO SAID WHY IS SHE REALEASING ONLY 11 SONGS WE HEARD 6 OF THEM DUMBA** ITS A LEAK!!!! POINT BLANK DON’T LISTEN TO THE LEAKS!!!! THATS LIKE IF A MOVIE IS COMING OUT AND SOMEONE LEAKS IT ON THE INTERNET AND YOU DECIDE TO WATCH IT OF COURSE THERE NOT GONNA CHANGE UP THE MOVIE JUST BECAUSE YOU DECIDED TO WATCH IT, ITS YOUR FAULT! SHOULDN’T OF BEEN IN THE COOKIE JAR WHEN MAMA SAID NO!

  115. ITS CALLED A LEAK FOR A REASON… P2 December 1, 2010

    1. ITS NOT CIARA’S FAULT FOR THE 11 TRACKS ITS HER MANAGEMENT THEY DECIDE HOW MANY TRACKS ON THE ALBUM AND THE SONGS ON THE ALBUM NOT CIARA

    2. ITS ILLEGAL TO DOWNLOAD AND POST MUSIC WITHOUT LEGAL AUTHORIZATION

    U SHOULD OF WAITED OR STOP COMPLAINING COS U DECIDED TO LISTEN TO LEAKED TRACKS AKA SONGS THAT WERE MENT TO BE BOUGHT AND NOT BOOTLEGGED

    SORRY ITS JUST ANNOYING HEARING STUPID PEOPLE COMPLAINING ABOUT LEAKS!!

  116. Respect December 1, 2010

    I dont agree with those commenting about Ciara not showing any growth, I think she do, very much and therefore I regard her as being on the same level as Aaliyah – and I love both of them!

    At the same time, there are alot of people who actually enjoys listening to Ciaras singing, it might not be the strongest, but she can express feelings with it, it’s very calm and soft.

    Basic Instinct sounds like a solid album. I’m going to buy it!

  117. keith December 1, 2010

    Just heard JLewis’ version of “Shut Em Up”. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?!?!?!?!?!?!? If I were Ciara, I would throw my hands up and say “f*** it” to the music industry. Her version is clearly superior. I will keep my fingers crossed that the JLewis track never takes off…cause that’s A DAMN SHAME.

  118. True December 1, 2010

    it was me who commented about ciara growth, i just feel like after the evolution her sound hasn’t change its not grown in a way that i hear all her influences musically. I’m a ciara fan so when i heard you got me/ basic instinct i was excited. i though she would go back to what she did with her second album but still keeping her sound fresh & moving on to the next level. fantasy ride was a good album but there was something missing in that album. The evolution i love every song & could’nt stop listening to it.

    I’m a big aaliyah fan when i listen to one and a million, then listen to aaliyah last album i can hear the growth in her vocals, her musical influences, the album flows but it still has her sound.

    someone said if you don’t like it don’t listen to the illegal leak but it’s on Amazon so i don’t see how it’s an illegal leak.

    i don’t mind buying a 10-11 track album if its full of great timeless songs but if its only got album fillers which are forgettable it’s a waste of money for me. Teedra Moses album has 13-14 track but i love every song & I’ve been listening to that album for 5 years now.

    if you look at ciara influences like janet jackson her sound grown over the years but she still janet.

    UGH Sorry but NO. This does not sound like a cohesive album, just full of ghetto ATL anthems, no songs with substance. I may be wrong so I’ll bootleg the album then give it a thorough listen. But as of now, NO SIR.

  120. Timago December 1, 2010

    “Turn It Up” is a sure-fire hit and will rise up the pop/mainstream charts if it’s released as a single.

  121. Beyonce: The Queen of Pop & Soul December 1, 2010

    From what I hear, they aren’t bad. At least this time, she staying with what she does best. I thought she strayed away from her sound on the last album. She’s not a “powerhouse vocalist” and she don’t have to be. Janet Jackson wasn’t and she made great music anyways.

    I am not put Ci on JJ’s Level, just making a comparison because their tone is similar and their music is also. I think her stan base will love the album from what I hear. I am not sure if she will expand her base, but it will please the stan base though and that’s all that matter. I say she will probably Gold in the States and a possible plat because of this.

    2 everyone complaining about the track list, No one TOLD any of you’s to listen to the songs the LEAKED online! What do u expect in this day in age with technology? SOngs get LEAKED no MATTER the artist. You expect them to go back into the studio to record more msuic because you can’t wait until it’s officially released? It’s not cheap for an artist to Keep making Music especially with the involvment of RECORD LABLES! These people have Bosses too People, they’ve got to satisfy more than just the fans. Good grief

  123. edheadboy0503 December 2, 2010

    and another thing, Why people spend their time commenting on people and things they don’t care for is beyond me. Is it really THAT SERIOUS and life altering that you have to go to your keyboard slander a person’s reputation all because you don’t like them? Which by the way makes no sense at all, logically speaking of course seeing as you don’t even physically know them, I’m confused as to what it is people dislike about Ciara. The fact that she’s living a dream she’s had since a child and has had the ability and will and Blessing to achieve it? The fact that although people keep knocking her EVERYTHING she keeps trying? You think it’s easy getting to the sucess Ciara Ciara has? You are Dreaming! MORE THAN THE MAJORITY of these people that spread this hate will never sell the MILLIONS however large the tally may be, it is still RIAA CERTIFIED Multi-platnium! Garnered MANY AWARDS, A GRAMMY! MODELS professionally, courtesy of Wilhemina MODELS oh and not mention the “SMALL” fortune she’s amassed since seeing her CHILD-HOOD dream come to fruition. I don’t know about ya’ll but That says A LOT about a PERSON. Give props where props is due. It takes a special person to be in the postion CIARA is in now and any other artist u may feel the need to hate on from here on after.
