New Ciara ‘Basic Instinct’ Promo Pics

Published: Saturday 11th Dec 2010 by Sam

Check out these new promotional shots for Ciara‘s fourth studio album ‘Basic Instinct’ (due December 14th). Thus far, the project has been quite the roller-coaster; spawning Urban smash ‘Ride’ earlier this year, only to go on to suffer numerous push-backs, and non-charting singles (‘Speechless’ and ‘Gimme Dat’ really deserved to be hits!). {Pic credits: Ultimate Ciara}

Tidbit: While many scratch their heads at the undeniably shabby handling of the project, That Grape Juice has received reliable word about the drama behind the scenes which has caused for it. All we can say is that the next few months will be very interesting.

  15. HUH? December 12, 2010

    LMAO @ the ignorant stans thinking Ciara will have a #1 album let alone have a top 5 album. Are you’ll forgetting that Michael Jackson & R Kelly Release albums that same day? & not forgetting that Subo, Taylor & Jackie are still Pushing STRONG numbers. C-error can forget a Top 5 Debut.

  19. Christian December 12, 2010

    I like Ciara and I love all her previous albums but “Basic Instinct” is an awful album. She needs to leave Tricky and The Dream alone from now on.

  20. Tami December 12, 2010

  23. Anthony December 12, 2010

    Oh man, Ciara is looking real s*** as usual. Any guy that gets her better realize what they have in their possession. Not only is she hot, she has an amazing personality

  24. dabest December 12, 2010

    you betta wash ya mouth b4 you speak about MS KELLY ROWLAND THE QUEEN OF DANCERNB!!! NEXT

  28. paulmszon December 12, 2010

    Guys I love a bargain as much as anyone and I used to love all the cheap stuff I could find on eBay, but Nowadays it seems so hard to find anything cheap over there and just when we’re all finding it tougher to just pay our bills. I don’t give up so I was looking for someplace online where I could still find myself a bargain…and by accident I came across this site I never heard of before where you get rock bottom prices. I mean I was worried about scams but this stuff is actually real and I got some real cheap stuff there…it’s become my new eBay lol! Go to Wikibidz.com

  29. royalkev December 12, 2010

    I am rooting for Cici! I don’t know what some of ya’ll haters are on, but the music on Basic Instinct is solid. I like just about everything on the album(atleast a good 80% of it). I’m convinced that there’s just alot of people that weren’t going to be pleased with her, no matter what she delivered. People only want to b**** about her promo and feel justified in calling her a flop by seeing her fail. It’s a nag and those people want to have it proven that she needed more promotion. Everyone is talking about Keri’s promo, but her music is wack and I think the few people trying to like it is just picking the opposing side (and yes, this includes Sam now). I give her credit for stepping it up live, in her showmanship – but she’s not in Ciara’s lane and doesn’t come close to her swag. 12/14, Ciara is deserving of being #1. period.

  30. jOHNNY December 12, 2010

    LMAO TRENT THEM IS NOT LYING ALL IMMA SAY IS IT IS NOT ABOUT HOW YOU START BUT HOW YOU FINISH YEAH THEM FIRST WEEKS MIGHT NOT BE TO GOOD BUT YALL BETTER LOOK OUT FOR WHAT SHE HAS COMING UP THAT IS ALL IMMA SAY JUST KNOW THEY DIDNT PUSH THIS ALBUM BACK FOR NOTHING!

  31. latin86 December 12, 2010

    How da hell are you all gonna say u know what’s going on behind the scenes n not say anything else wat da hell! You all are annoyinh as hell sound so inexperienced. Can y’all just say what’s going on or not say anything at all.

  32. mark ginnis December 12, 2010

    Trent how about an anonymmous post where you spill the beans.

  33. Haters Stay Pressed! December 12, 2010

    Well come on then Sam! Give us the juice? Don’t leave us hanging?

    Ci-error doesn’t looks half bad in these pics though, with her big ole man hands. Lol! She is not as pretty as Keri though! #POW

    Let’s be real, her stans can act all big and bad on these blogs but I think we all know her album is going to flop HARD! Lol! ‘Ride’ has long fell off and she has nothing else on the charts right now!

    I won’t feel bad at all either because her stans have been talking a lot of ish about other artist when Ci-error has been struggling for the past 2 years! LMAO! Ya’ll spend more time shading other artist than you do supporting your girl! So when she flops HARD, just remember it’s karma from all shade ya’ll threw at other artist coming back to her!

    Keri is going to crush this bish! Bwahahahaha!

  34. CURLY SUE December 12, 2010

    NO SHADE, BUT NO ONE I KNOW LIKES CIARA’S MUSIC (INCLUDING MYSELF). IT WAS CUTE WHEN WE WERE 16 YEAR OLD HOPPERS, BUT NOW IT DOES NOTHING FOR US. IF YOU WANNA SELL CIARA, CHANGE YOUR MUSIC CONTENT…SING ABOUT MORE MATURE STUFF THAT WE CAN RELATE TO. SURE WE WANNA DANCE, BUT COME ON NOW. GIVE US MORE…

  35. Traci Summers December 12, 2010

    YOU B****** DONT KNOW WHAT THE FUTURE MAY HOLD.. CIARA JUST MIGHT TURN IT AROUND AND SHOW OUT… DID U KNOW RIDE WAS THE MOST REQUESTED VIDEO OF 2010 AND ITS CERTIFIED GOLD???? SHUT THE F*** UP CIARA IS A CLASSIC ENTERTAINER SONGS N VIDEOS UL REMEMBER SHE IS SLEPT ON AND ITS SO SAD

  36. RI RI THE BEST December 12, 2010

    @CURLY SUE
    HOW CAN THAT S*** BE KARMA FOR CI BECAUSE SOME IGNORANT PEOPLE OVER THE INTERNET DONT KNOW HOW TO ACT LMAO YOU SOUND REALLY DUMB DID CI THROW SHADE AT OTHER ARTISTS……NO SO STFU SHE HAS NO CONTROL OVER THESE OTHER PEOPLE

  37. BENJAMIN December 12, 2010

    I forgot her album was even coming out. Ah well……..I’ll preview the release before I think about buying, but I think we all know what the turnout is going to be.

  38. credits December 12, 2010

    if they are worried about the commercial success of this album, i really don’t think it is ready for release considering the lack of success of the singles prior.

  39. MUSIC LOVER December 12, 2010

    I expect a top 20 debut sales of less than 50k. Her album leaked a week ago, and with no real promo, she will FLOP, end of story. They need to drop her ass so she can get serious about music with another team who will actually help her!

  40. Che’s_Beret December 12, 2010

    Hmmm…something about the way her projects are being handled just doesn’t sit right with me. I mean what exactly does her label and management think they are doing when it comes to promotion and exposure? Personally, I wish she would just leave them and find a new team because I feel she’s a great entertainer who is highly underrated and doubted. On another note the pictures look nice and I hope the best for CiCi and Basic Instinct because it’s deserved.

  41. jwellz10 December 12, 2010

    I THINK THAT CIARA IS GOING TO FIRE HER MANAGMENT OR LEAVE JIVE THE HELL ALONE AFTER ”BASIC INSTINCT” ERA IS DONE WITH..PROBABLY EVEN BOTH..REGARDLESS OF THE 1ST WEEK SALES & HOW MUCH IT IT PUSHES SO ON..BECAUSE SHE KNOWS HOW THEY ARE TREATING HER..IF U GUYS NOTICE HER PROMO HAS BEEN MESSED UP EVER SINCE “CIARA:THE EVOLUTION” ERA..CIARA WAS ON HER WAY TO BE AS BIG AS RIHANNA NOW OVERSEAS..THIS ALBUM IS HER BEST AS OF YET..IF HER TEAM & LABEL CHOOSES THE RIGHT SINGLES TO RELEASE NEXT (YEAH I KNOW,WANTS FOR DINNER) & A LOT OF PEOPLE WANT “YOU CAN GET IT” RELEASED NEXT,ASAP AS THE 3RD OFFICIAL SINGLE..HER ALBUM COULD PUSH TO GO PLATNIUM..AND ALL OF THIS HATE THAT SHE’S GETTING ISN’T MAKING IT ANY BETTER..ITS LIKE PEOPLE JUST WANT HER TO FAIL..HER ALBUM ISN’T AS BAD AS PEOPLE ARE MAKING IT SEEM TO BE..THEY JUST DON’T WANT HER TO SUCCEED.YOU AREN’T GOING TO LIKE EVERY SONG SOON AS U HEAR IT..U GOTTA LISTEN TO IT A COUPLE OF TIMES OVER & OVER..NO NOT EVERYBODY ISN’T GOING TO LIKE..THIS ALBUM IS BETTER THAN “FANTASY RIDE”..I THINK CIARA WAS JUST GIVING HER MANAGMENT ANOTHER CHANCE..BUT OBVISOUSLY THEY MESSED UP AGAIN SO SHE KNOW WHAT SHE’S GOTTA DO NOW..I`M NOT SAYING ALL OF THIS JUST BECAUSE IM A FAN EITHER..I LIKE RIHANNA JUST AS MUCH AS WELL..I`LL LISTEN TO KERI HILSON & BEYONCE AS WELL

    BUT FOR REAL…SPILL THE BEANS…WAT HAPPENED BEHIND THE SCENES??I WANNA KNOW SO BAD!!!

  42. lala December 12, 2010

    Yes the photos are nice, but she is not trying to sell a magazine but a album. Just because she looks nice in the photo does not mean people will buy the album. i heard her leaked album and it isn’t bad but i would just listen to it on the radio i would not buy it sorry not a fan, but i wish her luck

  43. Woooow December 12, 2010

    At least Keri Hilson has actually been promoting her album! Where is Ciara?! Yeah ciara may be more established but so what? No promo…no hot singles…no buzz…no nothing! Anyone who says “Basically It Stinks” is going to sell more than No Boys Allowed knows they’re lying to themselves! Keri keep doing your thing….women lie men lie NUMBERS dont lie!

  48. An0thrDream December 12, 2010

    she’s breathtaking! I know that when it comes to ciara, whether she is getting #1’s or not, when she performs (videos, stage, etc) her stage presence screams out that she’s one of the best at what she does.

  49. getting_licked_out December 12, 2010

    I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY WE ONLY GET TWO PICS FROM THIS SHOOT? SURELY THERE MUST BE LOADS OF POSES????

    THEY DIDNT TAKE ONE PHOTO AND CALL IT A DAY!! SMH

  50. Ty December 12, 2010

    I know this has got nothing to do with Ciara, i am a big fan of Kelly Rowland, i think i am single handedly her biggest fan, but that TRAMP who claims to support Kelly and is cussing other people is a shallow, low life b**** with nothing better to do with their life other than insult celebrities that don’t even know you. B**** MOVE ON AND STOP SPREADING NONSENSE AROUND.

  51. MissImpartial December 12, 2010

    HAS SHE PERFORMED YET? WAS THERE EVER A TELEVISED PERFORMACE OF HER SINGLE RIDE?

    I DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW KERI THE LESSER OF THE TWO HAS MORE PROMO AND APPEARANCES THEN CIARA.

  52. English Babe* December 12, 2010

    EXACTLY, i like her but i don’t think she will be number one because so many pushbacks and rare promotion.

    I f this was Rhianna, she would be everywhere promoting her album or songs, i rarely hear of Ciara.

    Girl good luck and please prove me wrong.

  53. J TRIPLE DASH December 12, 2010

    yes cici!!! shut em up!!!!! 13/12/10(uk) 14/12/10(u.s) BASIC INSTINCT!!!!!

  54. Blue Kid December 12, 2010

    This woman looks chocolate delicious ( no homo) I would love to see her on tour with CB, I wish they would do a dance duet together, those two together can rock.

    I love CiCi and Sam is right her two songs should have been number 1# hits.

  55. Ciara love December 13, 2010

    @blue kid
    I agree. She doesn’t get enough radio or tv airplay. Diddy, jayz, etc., and the rest with their own major money are buying up all the air time. That’s why keyshia is not doing well either and so many others. It sucks too because radio is no fun any more. i just turn it off

    Dont forget she’s on wendy williams tommorrow night, lopez tonight, monique and 106 and park and ellen this week.

  56. PSULUVSR&B December 13, 2010

    Instead of arguing of someone’s dumb-ass post, why don’t all the Ciara make sure they go out there and purchase he album.?! lol It also wouldn’t hurt to help her team by posting reminders on your Facebook & Twitter accounts to remind the general public about the album. I do it all the time…

  57. lola December 13, 2010

    I just really can’t stand the C-ERROR stans! WTF is wrong with y’all? You guys are extremely delusional and in denial. I agree with the person who said that y’all have been hyping her up like she’s this talented singer who is going to “slay” when her a** has been struggling for over 2 years! Then y’all have a nerve to call those of us, who point out how much of a flop she is, haters and jealous! How do we hate on someone who is not succeeding in her career? She might as well be working a regular 9-5. And it has nothing to do with having the enjoyment of “hating” C-Error. Many people dislike her because for 1, she’s gone Hollywood and even Lloyd admitted this, 2, she’s sold s** to the fullest in a raunchy way, and 3 she is an awful singer and makes crappy, shallow, generic, music.

    Anyway, these pics are ugly. C-Error is just not attractive. She looks like a straight up dude with a wig on his head!

  58. Golly Gee December 13, 2010

    i am debating to even watch the shows ciara is suppose to be on after watching the christmas special. She did nothing!!

  59. something don’t smell right December 13, 2010

    how can a woman so attractive be struggling like this? Forget the neg. comments, something inside the music industry has their foot on her neck. Her promotion sucks. This reminds me of when 50 cent was having trouble with his label and had to promote on his own it was bad. something is going on. She is 8 years in the game and struggling like a new comer? All the newcomers were performing at the BET christmas special except her?hopefully her fans realize what is going on and buy that album. I see more support international then in the states. good luck ciara

  60. JNova December 14, 2010

    These pictures are amazing !! I can’t wait for BASIC INSTINCT !! I just pre-ordered it here http://bit.ly/f7ZxbN wooo!!

  61. ruffnsweet December 14, 2010

    Ciara needs to switch to another label/management or something. Her s*** ain’t been right for a while now. The girl can dance her ass off. Too bad the songs doesn’t match her dancing cause the girl can dance her ass off! I like her but it is what it is.

  62. Danity December 16, 2010

    C-ERROR needs to stop trying so hard(its over) and now she wanna try to get all girly.
    Keri Hilson wins without a doubt. C-ERROR looks like a MAN & she CAN’T sing.
    Her career is OVER she is TRULY WHACK!!! In Gimme Dat she says the same thing over & over. She needs 2 look 4 a 9-5(5 days a week). While they was comparing Keri Hilson to C-ERROR they aint nothing alike. HOW U GONE COMPARE A MAN(C-ERROR) to A WOMEN(KERI). People these days. BUT ITS ALL ABOUT MISS KERI BABY!!!

  63. viktor December 18, 2010

    firstly id just like to say to the PSYCHO Keri Hilson FAN posting that same post on numerous blogs, stop it its pathetic and

    all of you Haters i dont take seriously becoz ur just a bunch of kids that dont know anything about music and never will until you actually mature. go ahead and attack my post all you like coz in the end ur only typing and graphics in the form of letters pop on the screen. what i love about that is anything anyone says online basically shows ur true nature, so no matter if your comment is anonymous or fake ur truth comes out, and if its negative then hate to break it to you but your an ugly individual….there is a difference from being NEGATIVE & giving CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM

    as for Basic Instinct….the only song I dont like is Girls get your money….couldnt take hearing girls get your money repeated 500 times in the song. I agree that Ciara should stay away from Tricky Stewart & The Dream…I mean how many times can you sing over the instrumental of Shorty you a 10 either sped up or slowed down a little. Next time you wanna blame the Artist…try looking at the producers, writers, & record execs….When do they get held ACCOUNTABLE for an Artists shortcummings. And besides the INDUSTRY isnt what it was 10 years ago
