Sales Figures: Ciara Fails But Michael Jackson Reigns

Published: Tuesday 21st Dec 2010 by Trent

It’s official: Ciara has bombed. The ‘Gimme Dat’ performers new album, ‘Basic Instinct’, will debut on the Billboard 200 this week with a lowly 37,940 units sold, entering the lineup at #43. This will be Ciara’s lowest debut in her career to date.

On the other hand, Michael Jackson’s ‘Michael’ LP will nab the #3 spot with 224,910 copies sold. While it is not enough to outsell Susan Boyle or Taylor Swift, the record will have have the highest entry of any Urban release this week.

Diddy-Dirty Money also received a special gift from Santa Claus. The trio’s ‘Last Train To Paris’ will enter the Billboard 200 at #10 with 87,380 units, exceeding all expectations, thanks to massive promotion in the last 7 days. The record did not outsell R. Kelly’s ‘Love Letter’, however, as the R&B King’s album will grab the #6 spot with 150,405 in sales.

On the contrary, Tank was not so lucky as his album will debut at #38 with 41,181 units sold. Still, the R&B crooner has managed to outsell both Ciara and Kandi, the latter of whom has missed the top 50 completely with her ‘Kandi Koated’ release. Ho ho no.

    TEAM CIARA ON SUICIDE WATCH. IT WAS SO PATHETIC ON TWITTER YESTERDAY WHERE HER STANS WHERE LYING TO HER ABOUT HER ALBUM BEEN TOP 10 IN 10 COUNTRIES AND THE BASIC B**** WAS SO DUMB TO BELIEVE THEM THAT SHE RETWEET ALL THEIR LIES. WELP CEDRIC THE FUNERAL FOR YOUR CAREER WILL BE HELD ON BILLBOARD AT 8 AM TOMORROW MORNING. THE WAKE WILL COMMENCE MOMENTARILY. WE ARE WAITING THE ARRIVAL OF YOUR RECORD LABEL, MANAGEMENT TEAM AND DOCTORS TO DETERMINE YOUR S** AT BIRTH. YOU WILL BE MISSED TRANNY.

      Grow up

  3. luvmedj December 21, 2010

    Well damn damn damn!!! But I’m not surprised with Kandi’s numbers, her album is pretty good though. Ciara needs to hang it up, this was chance #2 for her and this proves once again that no one is checkin for her. If her fan base was SO STRONG and routing for her…then why the HELL didn’t anyone buy the damn album? #ThatsAll

  4. movieman December 21, 2010

    poor cedric she gon be working at cici pizzza soon

  5. Shun December 21, 2010

    I’m actually happy for Diddy-Dirty Money!

  6. TheRealest December 21, 2010

    That is so sad. I feel really bad for Ciara because the album is actually good but her label f***** her over. She needs to leave Jive ASAP before they drop her because this makes no sense.

    R. Kelly did really good!

    No comment on Kandi.

  7. Nate December 21, 2010

    Well, Kandi released her album independently, with two cheap videos, and a very small amount of promotion on local radio stations. It’s a bit different situation from Ciara and everyone else. Something tells me that even if Kandi isn’t doing R. Kelly or even Tank numbers, she’s still making quite a bit of money… since she’s on an independent label and pretty much writes all her own stuff. I don’t think she’s sitting around worrying, trust.

  8. JASMINE24 December 21, 2010

    LMAAAAAAAO!!!!!!!

    To finally take the time out of my day to have a look at this website- the first thing I see on that grape juice is “CIARA FAILS”……. I CANT!!!!!!!

    Nonetheless, CONGRAJULATIONS Michael, It just goes to show how much you’ve inspired people and how your music lives on. Though I was expecting higher numbers- I think this is quite terriffic for a posthumous release!!! Well done ‘r-kelly’ also!

    As for diddy-dirty money- SNM!

  9. Sasha December 21, 2010

    What is Ciara doing wrong? I don’t follow her much but it looks like her fans didn’t even buy her album.

  10. AKisdabest December 21, 2010

    damn Ciara smh. congrats to R. Kelly and MJ!

  11. Christian December 21, 2010

    I have a feeling this will be Ciara’s LAST album release with Jive. Ciara needs to DITCH Tricky and The Dream.

  12. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 21, 2010

    37,940 copies sold only? Ouch. I haven’t listened to the album or the singles at all, but I’m willing to bet that it’s no worse than the crap that has been released this year (Ke$ha, Katy Perry, Black Eyed Peas), yet they’ve all fared better. It’s living proof that good marketing is what sells an album, not the quality of it.

  13. Che’s_Beret December 21, 2010

    Hmmm….to be honest I’m not surprised, ‘Basic Instinct’ was handled horribly. But one thing I’ll never do is sleep on an artist I feel is truly talanted.

  14. Shouw December 21, 2010

    I’m sad for her but hey she didn’t even promote her album what was she waiting for?

  15. Nate December 21, 2010

    @Christian: EVERYONE needs to ditch Tricky and The-Dream. Their formula is getting stale, but they still seem to feel no pressure to switch things up. Even though I loved The-Dream’s last album, Mariah’s Memoirs, and Ciara’s Basic Instinct, it seems like nobody else is. You think they would take the hint.

  16. carl December 21, 2010

    CIARA :-O OMG I LOVE HER SO MUCH. IT’S NOT FAIR COS SHE WILL BE THE TARGET OF ALL BLOGS NOW 🙁

  17. the kiddz December 21, 2010

    Ciara should have been promoting instead of trying to keep up with the Kardashians.

  18. RIHLUV December 21, 2010

    HATE TO BRING IT UP..BUT RIH DID SELL ANOTHER 80,000 ..LMAO JUST SAYING

  19. Mindset212 December 21, 2010

    DEADDD @ Ciara will be working at CiCi’s Pizza soon.. ya’ll are so mean.. lmaoo

  20. Teflon Don December 21, 2010

    SOMEWHERE CIARA IS PISSED OFF GRABBING ON HER D*** BECAUSE F****** FOR TRACKS DID NOT WORK. I HOPE SHE GET HER MONEY TOGETHER TO PAY THE PEOPLE FOR THIS ALBUM. I GUESS THIS MEAN SHE WON’T EVEN MAKE 30000 FROM THIS ALBUM. POOR TRANNY.

  21. cutiepie December 21, 2010

    Kandi album is better than all of them.

  22. Prada-G December 21, 2010

    SMH! I feel bad for ciara… but in my opinion the music on basic instinct deserves those numbers ( no shade intended) lol but I REALLY FEEL BAD FOR DIRTY MONEY! Last Train To Paris is a hott album!!! at least deserves 100 k 🙁 but ya know this economy is killin everyone’s numbers.

  23. Blasian December 21, 2010

    I really feel bad for Ciara DAMN!!!!

  24. (the 1st) iLoveXtina December 21, 2010

    DAMN

    This era was a mess for Ciara. Maybe next time?

  25. JASMINE24 December 21, 2010

    “WAIT, WAIT, WAIT, WAIT – DID YOU HERE WHAT I JUST SAID? B****, I SAID WAIT”…………………

    ARE YOU SURE CIARA EVEN RELEASED HER ALBUM???????

    HOW DID SHE SLIDE FROM 230, 000+ FROM HER ‘GOOFIES’S’ ALBUM TO 37, 000+ ON THIS ALBUM!!!!!!!

    DAMN, THIS ALBUM IS ‘BASICALLY EXTINCT’

    If ‘RIDE all the way to the grocery store’, you’ve left me ‘SPEECHLESS’ with this mess and ‘GIMME DAT FLOP’ didn’t work- HOW WOULD THE ALBUM SELL!

    *sigh* CiCi- there’s always a next time

  26. HLOVE December 21, 2010

    I feel so bad for CiCi but I hope Keri do good next week .

  27. ICON December 21, 2010

  30. hmm December 21, 2010

    Y can’t black people support their artists instead of creating a post to mock them. I am proud to be a white because we support our artists.

  31. Spunkypoop December 21, 2010

    Wow!!! I’m speechless like Ciara.

  32. ilovextina December 21, 2010

    DAMN!

    Not surprised at all though!

    How is Taylor Swift back at #1? How is she still selling? Well I guess people purposely wait until the holidays to release their albums since everybody is out shopping for Christmas etc…

    I mean damn, Christina should’ve waited until now to release Bionic..if a 10 year without promotion can sell a Christmas album filled with classics and sell good then Bionic would’ve had some hope more than it had back in June!

    But I’m glad to see talent back to ruling the chart again!

  33. NAS ( B Rockah Stan 4eva) December 21, 2010

    ROTF @ TRENT….HO HO NO!!! FAS MUCH AS I HATE TO SAY THIS I LIKE YOU AT TIME EXCET IF YOU KEEP REPPING FOR OUR GIRL..WINKWINK!

    OK WHAT IS CIARA NOT DOING RIGHT???????? AND WHO THE HELL IS BUYING SUBO AND TAYSTIF’S ALBUM LIKE THAT……I CAN’T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  34. Tami December 21, 2010

    No shade but Ciara needs to quit singing and make a workout video or Wii dance game!This s*** would SLAY!LMAAO AND HELL GO PLATINUM BEFORE ANY OF HER ALBUMS!SMDH!FLOP!

  35. Blasian December 21, 2010

    Dear Ciara Fans

    GET YO ASS OF THIS BLOG AND GO OBUY HER ALBUM BUY 5 COPIES BUY BUY BUY HELP HER OUT IF YOU REALLY CARE ABOUT HER SALES!!!

  36. TheRealest December 21, 2010

    I’m not even the biggest Ciara fan but the haters are pathetic.From what I can see she is a really sweet girl and she seriously doesn’t deserve y’alls childish asses talking s***. Get some damn lives.

  37. Wire December 21, 2010

    Fist Brown’s stans better pay attention to Ciara’s sales because F.A.M.E will flop the same way. The singers who are actually backup dancers aren’t in anymore.

    Rihanna sold 80K! Loud will be certified diamond before next year! Who else but the Queen!

    Child M******** R.Kelly and Michael Jackson flopped, but that was expected.

  38. Blasian December 21, 2010

    You know what I’m going to buy a copy of Ciara’s album just because

  39. miro(; December 21, 2010

    wow i cant believe that nicki sold more than diddy did in her what 4th or 5th week?

  40. Prince December 21, 2010

    Uugghh dis is so embarrasing 4 Ciara. Hopefully her album will still go Gold. Ciara please Never let the dream do ur whole album again.

  41. l.O.V.E December 21, 2010

    SONY and The Estate are to be blamed for MJ not making it to number 1. After the whole fiasco of Breaking News they should have replaced the songs now fans are boycotting the album!

  42. hmm December 21, 2010

    Blacks support your artists and stop talking trash. You guys talk too damn much

  43. Tami December 21, 2010

    Funny thing is I read an interview Ciara did she was talking about Kim Kardashian is gonna launch a music career and is working with The Dream and will support and help her!Laaaaaawd only thing I was thinking was why is the b**** worried Kim, when she has her own flop of a music career to worry about?SMDH!

  44. Wire December 21, 2010

    I bought a couple copies of Ciara’s abraham.

    She’s the only dark skinned girl I support or acknowledge.

    The promo for this abraham was terrible just like with Fantasy Ride.

    Jive would never do Britney like this. Ciara should sign with Bad Boy or something.

  45. Bei December 21, 2010

    Jive only shipped out 30,000 everywhere you go to buy Basic Instinct its sold out so how could she have possibly sold more?

    and please stop with the Ciara is more worried about Kim Kardashian than she is with her career because she barely seen around Kim this era except when they were celebrating their birthday the girl is human she can have a life and hang with who she wants to hangs and go out out to lunch without it being a problem, there are many other artists who hang out with socialites try another critical comment it’s getting old La La is her best friend but that’s not a problem?

  46. ICON December 21, 2010

    LOL Blasian

    Gurl long time no see

  47. Teflon Don December 21, 2010

    BLASIAN SHUT YOUR LYING BROKE ASS UP…. YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE A CHECKING ACCOUNT OR CREDIT CARD. YOU ANOTHER BASIC H** LIKE YOUR IDOL CEDRIC. SEE SOME OF YOU LOVE TO THROW SHADE AT OTHER ARTIST BUT HATE WHEN OTHER DO THE SAME TO YOUR FAVE. IF YOU CANNOT TAKE THE HEAT STAY THE F*** OUT THE KITCHEN. RIHANNA STILL SELLING 80+ AFTER DEBUTING OVER A MONTH AGO. BETTER THAN KANYE. WORLDWIDE SHE IS SHITTING ON ALL THESE ARTIST. LOL

  48. Jordan December 21, 2010

    Damn.

    Cici needs to stick to modeling now cause her music career is a wrap, like forreal.

    Like how do you debut at #43?

    They should have made this CD a greatest hits collection, it would have sold more.

  49. ICON December 21, 2010

    @Jordan

    What hits though Goodies? 1,2 Step HAHA Don’t make me laugh.

  50. Tami December 21, 2010

    I’m not saying Ciara can’t hang out with Kim Kardashian.Ciara was talking about how she would help Kim “launch” her career and s*** @BEI And I’m just thinkin ummmmm what about your career?If anything I bet Kim Kardashian album would slay Ciara’s! SMH!EVEN IS SHE IS A TALENTLESS B****!

  56. WHITE JESUS December 21, 2010

    it doesn’t make sense for ciara to fail so miserably it has to be something else like her fake persona.

  57. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN! December 21, 2010

    TAYLOR SWIFT IS BEATING ALL YOUR FAVORITES HAHAHAHAHA… IN HER 8TH WEEK???? SELLING MORE THEN THE KING OF POP? JUST SHOWS MUSIC DOESNT SELL ANYTHING LIKE IT DID.. SO YOU CAN COMPARE ALBUMS OF THE PAST TO NEW ONES.. ….. YOU CAN ONLY COMPARE SALES OF ALBUMS THAT HAVE CAME OUT AT THE SAME TIME….

    Taylor swift rules hahahhahahaha

    well done susan boyle too!!

  58. Meme December 21, 2010

    From the beginning of this whole Dirty Money process Diddy has always stated that their music wouldn’t be for everyone. That’s very evident in their first week sales, but I really dont give a eff on their sales, cause they are number one in my book. Last Train To Paris album is beyond dope and I appreciate their music. Thank you Dirty Money!!!

  59. ICON December 21, 2010

    @Tami

    LOL. I bet Ciara won’t even across 10,000 COPIES NEXT WEEK. The next question is will it be even in the top 100 NEXT WEEK LMFAO!!!!

  60. My 2 Cents.. December 21, 2010

    There Is NO Excuse For Ciara’s Numbers..Quite Expected
    Everything Was Handled VERY WRONG!
    She Should Of Kept Her Release Date At August 18.
    Ride Had EVERYONE Captivated (Admit It or Not!)
    And If Promoted/Released Correctly, Speechless & Gimmie Dat Would Of Done Alot Better Than What They Did. Promo Started WAYYY Too Late.
    Alot Of People Had NO Idea The Album Was Even Out!
    The Promo Performances She FINALLY Decided To Start Has Been GREAT!
    But Very Limited (Only Ellen & Lopez Tonight?)

    There Seems To Be Bigger Issue’s Though (Management/Label?)
    How Many Units Were Shipped? Many “Stans” Reported There Stores Were Sold Out,
    And I Dont See People Running To By This.

    Ciara Is Talented I Wont Sleep On Her, She’s A Fighter, Maybe Its Time For New Label Or Management That’ll Handle Her Correctly? I Believe In Her. Wouldnt Count Her Out Just Yet. She Has A Few Tracks On This Album That Have Potential To Be Singles (Turn It Up With Usher (Can Be A Hit), & Heavy Rotation).

    She Did Say That She Doesnt Care About First Week Sells, And More So About Longevity. So Maybe She’ll Try And Milk The Album..Little Tour, Couple Songs (Turn It Up) Sent To Radio..Maybe She’ll Get Another Hit This Era. Alot Is Possible, Guess We’ll Have To Wait And See How It Plays Out…

    And Thats My 2 Cents.

  61. Team Minaj California December 21, 2010

    Damn Ciara. OUCH!!

    Anyways Nicki Minaj album gathered up a surplus selling 98,000 this week. Haters are still mad.

    That is over 650,000 sold. YES B**** PLATINUM COMING SOON.

    Taylor can’t even sell 100,000 copies internationally so hush,

  63. imo December 21, 2010

    I’m mad at tank’s number, he debuted number 2 on s**, love, and pain and even please don’t go reach number 1. I hate when artists think going to a bigger label means bigger numbers, clearly he did better on wackground, I meant blackgrond lol, but they didnt do him right… I bought now or never do, s** love and pain is much better.

  64. g3 December 21, 2010

    wow #43 thats a damn shame Ciara smh im done with Jive & shes partly to blame too…Keri is bout to take that crown

  66. Tami December 21, 2010

    THE REASON FLOPPED SO HARD IS BECAUSE WHY THE F*** DID SHE JUST RELEASE THAT ALBUM?DAMN THEY PUSHED HER BACK SO F****** MUCH OR WHAT?RIDE WAS LIKE 6 MONTHS AGO!LMAAO SHE SHOULD HAVE RELEASED HER ALBUM LIKE IN AUGUST!NOT DECEMBER!SMH and she can’t sing anyway!SHE IS A DANCER!

  68. My 2 Cents.. December 21, 2010

    Oh Yea And If It Doesnt Pick Up Maybe She Should Take A Break, Do Some Modeling Gigs..Maybe Acting Roles, Be Missed On The Music Scene And Come Back Hard.

    A Little Extra Added To My 2 Cents

  69. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN! December 21, 2010

    Who’s number 1 in the american charts after 8 weeks of being out, and still out seelling everybody else, including micheal jackson? hush now? yeh?

  71. Prince December 21, 2010

    I think Rihanna and Nicki outshined Ciara so much people 4got about Ciara. I thought people wanted Ciara 2 go back 2 da basics of what she did in da beginning like Urban but i guess dat was a mistake. I guess she should start trying all types of genres next album if there even will be a another album from her.

  72. xedos December 21, 2010

    Cedric those $10.000 a month you said you pay for shoes you may need to have an sale on ebay. Its not the promotion. they’re was nothing to promote. if you release 3 singles with videos and none crack the top 20 on the hot 100 as a black artist you’re not going to get on no major tv show.

  73. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN! December 21, 2010

  77. ICON December 21, 2010

    @Taylor Swift’s Number 1 Fan

    Taylor is just a country pop artist. Country and pop together is a hit album in the States. No one gives a s*** about internationally. She sold under 5,000 copies this week in the UK.

    @Tami

    Gurlllllllllllll
    Cedric’s stuff is so 2004 lol. She’s tried to reinvent herself with Fantasy Ride. Basic Instinct was EXTINCT before the era even started LMAO.

  78. Beyganna Minaj December 21, 2010

    @ jasmine 24 dis was ciara’s nex time she shud jus tell fifty “make me speechless while givin me dat bass while i ride it:

  79. Christian December 21, 2010

    LMAO @ “WIRE” – NO ONE should EVER sign with “Bad Boy”. That’s a fissure waiting to happen. As for your comment towards Britney, well Britney is Jive’s MONEY MAKER so Ofcourse they gonna put out ALOT of money to promote het. Also Britney has established herself as an artist, she’s a household name and she’s a brand. As for Ciara, unfortunately she hasn’t reach any of those levels.

    @ “NATE” do you have any idea or know the reason why Ciara doesn’t work with Jazzy Pha anymore? But I have a feeling once this “Basic Instinct” Era is over, I think Ciara should sign to a new label, get a new marketing team and go back to working with Lil Jon, Missy Elliot and Jazzy and go back to her real beginnings.

  80. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN! December 21, 2010

    so?? Taylors album has been out for 8 weeks.. and states here are lower then in the states!!
    Plus when shes out selling every other artist in america… do you think she cares about outside america that much?

    Thats 2.6 million in 8 weeks.

    I love you Michael Jackson. I couldn’t be happier with 224,000 sold. He hasn’t done that in 20 years.

    Although Dangerous and Histor, and Invincible sold in the milions and debuted at number one I am not disappointed.

    You were a sweet and good man.

  84. Jordan December 21, 2010

    ANYWAY icon lol.

    Ciara went to basics with this one though, even though it failed–she wrote basically all of this album just like she did Goodies.

    Ciara has the right attitude, drive and stamina when it comes to branding herself, maybe not singing anymore though.

  85. Nichole December 21, 2010

    “poor cedric she gon be working at cici pizzza soon”

    Deeeaaaaaad as a muthafuuuuckkkkaaaaaaa.

  86. Jasmine December 21, 2010

    The people on here are so vain, it’s all about cd sales and billboard position. That is why I listen music from those artists who do music, not for fame and fortune, but for love and passion.

  106. Dragon December 21, 2010

    Imma stan for Keri for a week.
    I mean I like her & Cici but I knew Cic was gon’ fail epically.
    Homegurl has not been hot since 2006.
    She’s talented but to basic (no pun intended). Nothing she does is really memorable and she only had her early hits thanks to the Crunk trend that happened around 2004.

  107. DUMMIES December 21, 2010

  114. Diane December 21, 2010

    Early on Kanye said that he has to worry about Nicki but I thought he was just trying to give her confidence. Nicki’s hardcore fans brought their copy in the first week, so who is buying all these other copies from a “so-called mediocre” album? I think many people have accepted Nicki’s style and don’t hold her to the “old-style” rap genre. My girl is stretching her fan base.

    I want her to drop her singles from the Deluxe version. Why don’t the critics talk about the songs on the deluxe version: Muny, SuperBass, Blow Ya Mind, Falling like Dominoes, Wave Ya Hand, and Catch Me? I think BYM or Muny will make great singles.

  115. ICON December 21, 2010

    “Ciara still dragging Kandi.”

    This comment KILLED ME LOL

    LMFAO!!!!!!!! At the shameless stan. I don’t like Kandi lol but sorry to burst your deluded bubble but did u know her album was released independently????? While Cedric is on Jive.

    @Tami

    Haha Willow her album will more in a week than Basically Extinct will sell overall lol.

    I’m not shock at Ciara fans talking about suicide, stanning for her in the 1st place wasn’t even sane.

  123. Pucci December 21, 2010

    I WILL NEVER STOP SUPPORTING AN A GOOD ARTIST & WHAT CIARA IS, IS A GOOD ARTIST. Its ashame that none of you dodos, even gave her chance. I supported her & bought Basic Instinct, so i did my part.

    Ciara, keep on striving for the best, you are too good a person & performer for something like this to keep you down in the dumps. Forget the haters, & smash with your next album, cause i will be buying. That’s all i have to say.

    To all the haters: lick your finger & stick it in a socket!!!! You idiots dont support her either so why even bother?

  125. credits December 21, 2010

    nobody should be trying to use the excuse that “the label didn’t ship enough” we all saw this coming! A flop album is a flop album. The dream and Tricky are not the hottest team. If anything she could have gone back to jazze pha, missy elliott or lil jon since she was going back to the ‘basics’. Ciara is alot different from when she first came out, she use to seem like a simple girl from atl and now she is hollywood, and keeping up with the kardashians. She is talented in delivering energetic performances, and her dancing is amazing, we can’t deny her hits, ‘goodies’ 1, 2 step’ ‘oh’ ‘promise’ ‘get up’ and that’s when ms. reggae rihanna’s music was struggling ‘under the sun’ remember? Ciara is still hot, she still got it, she just didn’t do it right with this album.

  126. Dragon December 21, 2010

    I can’t wait to see her 2nd week sales drop 😆
    Honestly tho I do feel bad for her.
    And the the label is part responsible but CiCi isn’t some victim here.
    She choose those hot ass messes as singles.
    JIVE let her open for Internationally successful Megastar Britney Spears and homegurl STILL flopped? They even gave her a Justin left-over and had him featured on the damn track.
    Ciara is/was a created from a fad and as that fad faded so did her relevance to music.
    Harsh but true.

    She’s selling so much because most of her fanbase (middle U.S.A.) do not know how to work a computer.

  128. shell17nj December 21, 2010

    “michael” is a nice album. I was pleasantly surprised, it is an enjoyable album. could michael have done better? of course.” much thanks to teddy, 50 cent , akon and all who worked hard to bring fans this album.

    LOL iduncurr if Keri sells less ‘cuz she’s not my main gurl.
    I just respect the way her campaign has been running and how she’s actually working for her success rather than Ciara who spent most of her time posing on Red carpets with Kim Kardashian and Lala Vasquez then decided to promote the same f*cking week her album dropped. I’m not saying that Cici didn’t work hard too but obv she had other more important things going on.:roll:

  137. Elvis Madore December 21, 2010

    The reason Ciara, & Kandi are floppin is because their albums ain’t even around much! I called 3 different wal-marts, 2 hmv, 1 target & 1 cd plus, not any of those stores has those two albums! I guess I’ll have 2 wait 4 the new year 2 buy them online! I love Cici, & I love Kandi!!!

  138. Dragon December 21, 2010

    ^^^Kandi’s album is independently released so obviously copies are gonna be limited.

    CiCi is just a has-been…hang it up flat-screen 😆 so they knew not that many would be checking for her in the first place.

  139. REASONABLE VOICE December 21, 2010

    Usually I don’t rejoice in other’s failures, but I have to for Ciara. Her big-mouth stans have came for Mariah Carey, Rihanna, Janet Jackson, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, even MICHAEL JACKSON! They deserve this. And if she wasn’t being so lazy, trying to look cute with Kim, and focusing more on the RED CARPET than her album, she wouldn’t be flopping this HARD. Even the Christmas boost did nothing for her!

  140. Stan December 21, 2010

    Well I believe Ciara’s last album “fantasy Ride” failed because she didn’t remove Chris Brown off the album. People was seriously mad at her that was fans of both her and Rihanna. It seemed like she didn’t care about the situation, and turning her back on the whole “girl Power” movement. Well that was a major mistake, because outside of single sales, she won’t have another successful album. ANd its sad because America don’t forgive females like they do men. CHris brown will be forgiven and have major success before Ciara. She put the Nail in her own coffen. I can most def say, the rihanna incident and rolling with Chris brown was the reason I didn’t buy her last album or this one. Its never okay to allow a convicted WOMEN BEATER ON YOUR ALBUM AND YOU A FEMALE TOO

  141. Natalie December 21, 2010

    I already knew Ciara was gonna do horrible she should just stick with modeling for real, because her music career is over. Also that’s good michael came in at number 3, but I’m surprised it’s so obvious that it’s not him. Like Ne-yo said I messing with the old micheal not this computerized bs. And for the person that said Michael was a child m******* need to get a f-ing life, because he was acquitted of all charges and they didnt have nothing on him in the 1993 case either. They had dna evidence on R. Kelly so he is a child m*******, but keep michael name out your mouth unless u know what u talking about R.I.P Michael forever b****es:)

  142. Nichole December 21, 2010

    Trent,

    You failed to mention Mariah’s MCIIU, which didn’t take in a boost this week even after her Christmas special.

    She’s doing decent, regardless.

  143. Stan December 21, 2010

    And let me add, Now that Chris brown semi forgiven by the public nearly a year later after the incident Keri Hilson is going have major success with her Chris Brown collabo because She waited for all that mess to claim down first like a “smart girl”.

  144. LAME December 21, 2010

    @Dragon

    Ciara has a better tone than Keri Hilson. if she got some vocal lessons she would be up there with Beyonce in singing.

  145. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 21, 2010

    @ Daniel (Taylor Swift’s #1 fan):

    For starters, if you don’t wanna be detected, change your gravatar. Second, you’re the only Taylor Swift stan who visits this site, so we’ll always know it’s you anyway. Third, she has mass appeal to the same crowd that buys pop music because she gets played on MTV and gets more mainstream exposure than any of her counterparts. So if course she’s gonna sell BIG. If you appeal to the mainstream market instead of just a specific fanbase, you’re gonna do well commercially. If she wasn’t getting any airplay outside of CMT, I doubt she’d be doing so well. And yes she was already popular before Kanye-gate, but awareness of her definitely increased after the incident. 90% of the time she was mentioned, it was always in reference to Kanye. She was painted as a victim by the media, and got people to feel pity for her. Now she releases her album this time around, and Kanye-gate is brought up again, especially since his album was released not long after hers. So naturally her stans will buy dozens of copies each to not only help propel their girl, but to “stick it” to Kanye. And he was foolish enough to talk about the incident all over again, so the T-Swift stans are gonna stick it to him even more, even if they already own her album, they’re gonna buy it again.

  146. Sarah December 21, 2010

    Why do people laugh at other’s miseries. What goes around, comes around. God bless Ciara, help her find herself in these hard times.

  147. CEDRIC CIARA PRINCESS HARRIS December 21, 2010

    I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE THIS TIME TO THANK MY LOYAL FANS ALL 37000 WHO BOUGHT MY ALBUM. I REALLY DID PUT MY HEART AND SOUL INTO THIS ALBUM AND I WAS ASSURED BY DREAM AND TRICKY THAT I HAD A NUMBER CD IN THE WORKS. THEY LIED TO ME. WHY IS IT THEY PRODUCE HIT SONGS FOR RIHANNA AND BEYONCE BUT CAN NEVER DO THE SAME FOR ME? I SMELL A CONSPIRACY. I GUESS IT IS TRUE WHAT DRAKE SAID ABOUT RIHANNA SHE IS GOOD WITH HER SOFT LIPS AND IS KNOWN FOR GIVING FLY HEAD. I GUESS I HAVE TO GOOGLE HOW TO GIVE HEAD AND TRY AGAIN.

    TO THE SINGLE MOTHER WHO SPENT HER RENT AND FOODSTAMPS MONEY TO BUY MY ALBUM ONLY TO GET DISAPPOINTED I APOLOGIZE. I HONESTLY TRIED BUT SOMETIMES WAS DISTRACTED BY LALA AND KIM WHO DID NOT EVEN BUY THE 100 COPIES EACH LIKE THEY SAID THEY WOULD. SHAME ON ME FOR BELIEVING THESE H***. I FEEL LIKE A TOTAL FOOL BECAUSE LALA HAS A RICH HUSBAND AND KIM HAS ALL THE BLACK ATHLETES ON LOCK WHILE I AM STUCK WITH SCREWING MY BODYGUARD. I WILL BE PURSING OTHER LABELS FOR MY ALBUM SET TO DROP SUMMER OF 2011. I HEARD ANTOINE DOBSON HAS A RECORD LABEL AND SINCE I WILL BE HIS FIRST BIG NAME ARTIST I WILL GET TOP PRIORITY WITH A BETTER PROMOTION AND MARKETING CREW. WISH ME LUCK AND CONTINUE TO SUPPORT.

    KINDLY

    I don’t think you can say, i’m the only Taylor swift fan that visits this site, without asking everyone first, which you cant do.. i am certain that theres others out there.. yeah i cant be sure… but theres a chance someone likes a taylor song.
    She doesnt get that mushc exposure, she doesnt even have a number 1 single yet, after 3 albums… Rihanna has 9. If shes so exposed and play all the time… why hasnt she had a number 1 single?
    Her last album fearless sold 592,000 in its first week in 2008.. so she was still very popular back and with songs like “love story” “you belong with me” shes become more popular.. and thats why her album sales have gone up.
    You say she was painted as the victim by the media… by what kanye did.. but wasnt she? She was a victim.. she was close to tears i would think…. her big moment stolen by kanye.. People arent gonna buy her album loads of times, just to stick it too kanye…..Kayne isnt competition to Taylor. I wouldnt buy a album more then once, who has money to waste these days!!

    Tina Knowles: Hi Ciara. Congratulations on another Flop pushed back album. Where are your Voodoo braids tonight?

    Ciara: I decided to switch it up for my album release party. This is the most important night in my career.

    Tina Knowles: Ciara you have one Grammy for popping and locking in Missy Elliot’s video. Where do you keep your lonely, dusty ass Grammy?

    Ciara: It fell of my coffee table and broke and is now being used as an ashtray.

    Beyonceitis: What was the biggest moment of your career?

    Ciara: Definitely opening up for Britney Spears. So many people came and saw me. Usually only 2 people come to my shows, but when I opened up for Britney there were 4 people in attendance. 1 was asleep.

    Tina Knowles: But didn’t all of Ciara’s shows sell out.

    Ciara: Yeah, but you know I was only the opening act.

    Tina Knowles: Oh I see. Why was that your biggest moment?

    Ciara: Well, I love that me and Britney have a lot in common. We’re both fierce and talented performers, and we’re both built like 9 year old boys.

    Tina Knowles: I see. You had an amazingly horrible year in 2009. And 2010 you set the example of what a flop should be. How do you expect to top this in 2011.

    Ciara: Well I’m working on another pushed-back abortion of an album, and I’m reading scripts for my next straight-to-burned DVD movie. But really I couldn’t fail as hard as I do without help. I have an amazing team of people around me who each play a big role in my failure. First I would like to thank my A&R people who send me incredibly weak and watered down tracks. I’d like to thank The Dream and Tricky for producing weak songs. I’d like to thank my stylist who always hooks me up. My stylist knows me so well, we have such a great relationship. I don’t have to give her much direction, all I have to say is “Hey can you make me look like a damn fool?” and she sends over the most tacky and horrendous looking Rihanna-rejected outfits.

    Tina Knowles: You also forgot to thank your fraudulent-ass publicists sending fake and exaggerated stories to blogs.

    Ciara: What are you talking about?

    Tina Knowles: Like you being Givenchy’s muse? Gwarl please. There’s no way in Citi Trendz hell that you are anybody’s muse y’all are clearly trying to copy Beyonce’s relationship with Mugler. And that b******* about you being paid $2 million to perform anywhere in front of people.

    Ciara: But that was true.

    Tina Knowles: Super C-Section please. If I took all the money you ever made at every show you ever did in your life it would not equal $2 million. I hang out with Kelly Rowland and Brandy on a regular so I know how much Six Flags and the Montgomery Alabama Black Gay Pride pays and it damn sure ain’t $2 million.

    Ciara: I really don’t need this negativity I have limos to park.

    Tina Knowles: Bye my Floppy Dearest. And don’t steal nothing out of my car or I’ll have Solange serve you.

  152. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 21, 2010

    @ Daniel:

    I said stan, meaning hardcore fan, of which I’m pretty sure there are none on this site apart from you. The same way you wouldn’t see too many Beyoncé stans pop up on a country music blog.

    Also, I did acknowledge that Taylor was popular before Kanye-gate. Hell, I’ve been hearing her songs on the radio since 2007. She doesn’t have singles that hit #1 , but she gets tons of airplay and a lot of coverage in the media. And I don’t even google the chick or often watch TV programs where I know she’ll be talked about heavily, so I’d say that’s exposure.

    The media dwelled on the incident even long after Taylor stopped talking about it. So it reinforced her image as a victim even further. And you don’t know how straight-up CRAZY her stans are. You wouldn’t buy more than one copy of her album, that doesn’t mean nobody else would.

  153. righter back you December 21, 2010

    I love Ciara, but how this album “Basic Instinct” about the Basics? I mean really? What song on here, besides maybe “ride” is really from the “goodies”/”1,2 Step” era? Maybe, there are some songs on here similar to “Like A Boy”, but aside from “ride” and “you can get it”, this is just a dance album.

    I’m not dissapointed in her, but I was really expecting a real URBAN Jam album full of her old flavour. I have nothing against her going pop, lets face it…. her main competition (Ree-hansa and b****-yonce-sey) are pop….. as has Usher and Chris Brown’s big hits (OMG/Yeah 3 times).

    Ciara; get back into touring and doing more TV promos and less time on the dance floor and shopping aisles. Get into more magazines and NIGHT TIME talk shows like LENO and SNL.

    Do some SPORTS promos (super bowl stuff), get into an award show and do something controversial. Go topless, get your name out there!

    If all else fails, pose for playboy!

    The fellas will love it!

    Im not a Ciara fan so no I didnt buy the album i didnt buy any of the albums that were released however I wish Ciara the best with this album as well as her future albums. Congratulations to R Kelly and Tank for bringing real R&B back. Now real R&B singers who are true to R&B have a better chance. Music just isnt what it use to be and I think its slowly making its way back to how it use to be. When singers could actually sing. Also congrads to artist like Monica and Fantasia for making 2 of the best and realiest R&B albums of 2010. But dont get it twisted Im TEAMBRANDY all the way. But I will never put any other artist down to uplift my FAV. So like I said I wish Ciara the best shes a great dancer and no one can deny that, Congrads R Kelly, Tank, Monica, Jazmine Sullivan and Fantasia for staying true to real R&B music and bring it back!!!!!!! Oh yeah an I really like Kandi havent heard any of her songs but I like her as a person she seems cool

    As for Ciara, you could tell she wasn’t proud of her album at all. I saw her on Wendy and she was just …well, there. I’m not even sure if she still want to be a performer. She got trapped by the goodlife : designer clothes, trendy stilettos, socialite life. Just like EVE. Girl bye.

    As for Diddy Dirty Money, I gotta give props to Diddy , he give 300% in a month to promote this albm, and people kinda dig it in the end. I like the songs and Dawn was my favorite DK but the Dirty Money concept is wack. Why would P Diddy/ Puffy/ Sean would need a girl group anyway? I don’t think they will make a sophomore album. Unless the girls are the only one involved.

    As for ‘Michael’, the album will probably go platinum and beyond. People don’t care that much about whether it’s his voice or not, they’ll still buy it – for his kids.

    COME ON YALL!!!!!

    BE NICE TO CICI!!!!! MAKING FUN OF HER IS KIND OF HARSH……SHE DID PUT HARD WORK INTO IT , THOUGH THE MATERIAL WAS VERY POOR.

    ANYWAY …….

    CONGRATS TO RI-RI …….THAT RIHANNA REIGN JUST WONT LET UP. CANT WAIT TO GET THE WORLD NUMBERS THIS WEEK , SHOULD BE AROUND 400,000 SOLD FOR WEEK 5.

  159. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN! December 21, 2010

    @True blue Well i guess i’m not a stan then, because i’d never buy more then one of the same album. It’s pointless. Well i like beyonce and im a county music fan, im sure theres loads she makes nice songs like “halo” “if i was a boy” maybe not the songs like the single ladies.
    Okay, well shes gonna be talked about a lot, if shes seeling loads… same as any other big selling artist will be. Theres probs gonna be a massive seeling new act next year.. that will be played everywhere.
    Yeh, the media did go over the top with it, but thats not the reason by people buy her albums.. yeh it made her more well known.. but that doesnt mean shes gonna sell.. its the music people buy.. not the person.

  160. Trackstar December 21, 2010

    Sorry about my spelling..I have iPhone and it keeps changing my spelling and I’m going kind of fast…but it’s obvious that these losers on these sites dnt have a clue about where these artists money really cones from…album sales dnt make their money asses…it’s the shows and appearances….Trey songz albums have yet to do well but guess what he tours, album sales are low for everyone now a days…look at rap music…there has yet to b a rapper that has even attempted to come close to 50 cents get rich album or the massacre…and r&b sales are def. down…I like all of these artist an will support all of them..I don’t get off by wishing people negativity…that’s probably why you idiots are sitting around looking for negativity because y’all don’t have lives and probably broke as hell… And this blog site it horrible..negativity

  161. jwellz10 December 21, 2010

    IM WITH THE FIRST WEEK SALES HONESTLY..I KNEW IT WASN’T GOING TO BE MUCH….CIARA WILL BE BACK ON TOP WHERE SHE ONCE WAS..GOD IS JUST HAVING CIARA GO THRU SOME DIFFICULTIES RIGHT NOW TO MAKE HER A STRONGER & BETTER PERSON IN THE LONG RUN..EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON..IT’S A STRUGGLE..NO WHAT I WANNA KNOW IS WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO NOW..THEY BETTER KEEP MOVING FORWARD WITH THE ALBUM RELEASING SINGLES & VIDEOS..IF CIARA RELEASE “YEAH I KNOW” OR ‘TURN IT UP” OR ”YOU CAN GET IT” HER SALES CAN GO UP..CIARA ISN’T GOING ANYWHERE U CAN’T COUNT HER OUT ALL YOU WANT..IM STILL GOING TO SUPPORT HER JUST LIKE I SUPPORT RIHANNA & BEYONCE

  166. Meow December 21, 2010

    The word BOMB has many connetations. But is this what the music industry is being reduced to? a competition in statistics? thats a sad day for the industry
    if Ciara sell 37k Bep 160 Mj 200 figures figures what about some integrity what about music being returned to being an artform? Crazy frog sold a ton but it aint exactly Purple Rain is it? im getting so bored with artists being judged on sales figures, let the accounts folks worry about that lets focus on wether the music is good and actually moves people or not instead of this petty english one upmanship with sales figures, Sales do no measure the quality of a work, or Kelly Price, and Tboz would be doing the same figures as Gaga
    then again, when lives of pensioners dying of hypothermia is not a priority for the goverment, or how many people are being m the record insade homeless by evil in the ivory coast and zimbabwe how can i expect the record industry to behave different.

    everybody flops at one point, brandy flopped twice……… I think she should do a dancing with the stars, dont get discouraged ciara, just keep your head high

  168. Hmmm? December 21, 2010

    I think that it’s sad to laugh at the misfortunes of others. When in reality none of y’all would sell that much if you put out an album who are we to go at somebody that hard until we’re in their shoes..plus it’s just rude lol…Y’all clowning ciara and diddy with all that damn promotion only managed to sell a measly 87,000+? I don’t see keri doing that well on the charts unless christmas sales go down. Brittany, Gaga, and Beyonce will rule 2011 more than likely. But it isn’t the quality of the basic instinct it’s actually a nice listen. I think the album should of dropped during the summer though and needed more promotion. But sales for R&B period hasn’t been that good

  169. WHITE JESUS December 21, 2010

    8 yrs strong and first time in australia the other day,a major market such as that.why would you say that out loud when your 8 yrs late.

  170. Dee Eugene December 21, 2010

    I applaud Diddy-Dirty Money for their 87k and #10 spot. Last Train to Paris is one of those albums that isn’t for everybody, like Diddy said, but I listened to the snippets and songs via YouTube and I loved what I heard. The Deluxe edition songs, Change & Last Night Part 2, are excellent songs as well. So is First Place Loser, the iTunes exclusive song. I really hope LTTP at least goes Gold or even Platinum. This album shouldn’t be slept on at all.

  171. theman December 21, 2010

    Stop making excuses. Taylor is just a huge artist. She is selling amazingly. Rihanna is doing good but she could be doing better. She has had two massive hits, but no number 1 album, and only 200k her first week, that is ok not great. Rihanna should be selling like Nicki Minaj. Her first weeks sales now should be around 250 to 300k. Rihannas stans act like she’s selling over a 100k a week. Then when you make mention of album sales in the US, they wanna bring up global sales to compensate for meager US sales lol. Anyway, Ciara’s label and team is to blame for this, after the hype that surrounded Ride’ she should have released the song with she and Usher, her album may have legs tho. Lets not write it off just yet.

    I am saying this if she can get a hit with the Usher song, and perhaps one other song. Instead of people whining about flops just buy the music. Why do u people enjoy other people flopping. Are u really that damn pathetic.

  172. jasminee December 21, 2010

    @Stan

    soo Fantasy Ride flopped because it had Chris Brown on it?

    it that why Graffiti sold more than FR and Basically Instinct?

    COMBINED?

    in its first week?!!!

    ……….oh.

    and to that one Taylor Swift fan. TS cant sing worth a lick. but most of her fan base consists of hillbilly white people and 12 year olds that dont even own labtops..soo how the f*** are they gonna illegally download a CD?

    and Keri Hilson stans, please dont do it. because shes just short of a FLOP as well. Dirty Foodstamps had every blog promoting their s***, every talk show (daytime and nightime) and still couldnt do 100,000. and nevermind the Beyonce stans and 3 Ciara stans that WONT be buying that s*** for the shade she threw. she’ll do better than Ciara but she wont break 100,000. thats a FACT.

    #2011 Beyonce, Gaga, Britney. who the F*** want war?

  173. october beauty December 21, 2010

  174. theman December 21, 2010

    I can’t do anything but laugh at some of u idiots. Taylor appeals to a wide spectrum of people. Everyone that buys her music is not illiterate or stupid. She was marketed and promoted properly, each of her albums were huge successes. Stop creating excuses for why she’s doing better than your favs. When no ones selling yall are bytching, but when they do y’all are still complaining. May’be your fav could actually take a few lessons from Ms.Swift, because she’s doing something correct selling millions the way she is. Moving right along, some of the same people that purchase a Gaga, or Beyonce’ or a Britney album will likely pick up Taylors album. She taring the chartrs up FACT:

  175. jasminee December 21, 2010

    @theman The fact that Taylor Swift cant sing. lacks stage presence. and barely can play the guitar. there has to be a reason as to why shes selling so much. I could understand if this h** was the next MJ or some s***. Taylor does NOT appeal to a wide spectrum of people. not even the world because shes NOT doing those kind of numbers outside the US. just saying…Im not trying to shade…but shade.

    shes not doing better than MY fave. Taylor Swift could never come for MJ and his overall sales………..

  176. JAYLA December 21, 2010

    I FEEL SORRY FOR SOME OF YOU PEOPLE’S PATHETIC LIVES, BECAUSE THIS STUFF IS THE HIGHLIGHT OF YOUR DAYS, I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY BLACK PEOPLE TEAR THEIR ARTISTS AND EACH OTHER DOWN, WHILE ALL OTHER RACES SUPPORT THEIR ARTISTS AND THEIR MUSIC, EXACTLY WHY SUSAN BOYLE AND TAYLOR SWIFT ARE ON TOP EVERY WEEK!

  177. GREG December 21, 2010

    @Friend, Michael Jackson was always a force to be reckoned with ..his last studio album Invincible back in 2001 sold 366,000 in the first week and went on to go double platinum. Reason it didnt sell more is because both Michael and Sony stopped promoting it because they were fighting….for an artist to go double platinum with little promotion speaks to his popularity…that was the last CD he released other than re releasing his old music.

  178. GREG December 21, 2010

    i for one am not checking for Taylor Swift……*looks around for Rhianna*

  179. Coco December 21, 2010

    @Jayla PLEASE dont come for black people as if we are the only ones who throw shade…because when Christina Aguerwefawafa’s ass came out with Not Myself Tonite, everybody, INCLUDING PEREZ HILTON, was all over that ass calling her a Gaga copy-cat.

    black people, as fans, expect more from our artists, being that they are black, they have to work TWICE as hard to get the recognition that a white artist may get. why do you think our biggest stars are f****** amazing and excel in their field? Beyonce. MJ. Janet. Mariah. s*** even Rihanna has 9 #1s. and lets not even talk about the Whitneys, Dianas and James Browns in the game. you couldnt tell me that if Ke$ha’s non talented ass was black that she would sell as much as she is today…

    Anyways, Ciara and other lessers get dragged because they arent working to the best of their abilities. why would Ciara wanna go back to basics? arent you suppose to grow and get better with each album? boo boo, Crunk music went out the window right along with Lil Jons ass back in 2006. when Ciara came out, thats what she excelled in.

    funny how Ciara stans can sit on twitter and drag other artists’ fans all day but cant drag their asses to the nearest Target to by their favs CD.

  180. KeyLOLO December 21, 2010

    CIARA WILL DO BETTER .. here in the U.S because she already number one everywhere esle that’s why she wen there first because they keep it 100 everytime and I think she did a great job with this and it just the first week or so and thatgrapejuice is the ONLY one will these sale????? hmmmmmm smell a hater?

  181. randomized December 21, 2010

    @Keylolo

    #YOUNEEDMOREPEOPLE all you have to do is type ‘Ciara’ into google, click news and see those numbers on NUMEROUS websites.

    heres a few of Ciara’s international debuts according to Wiki:

    Australia Urban Albums Chart 22
    German R&B (Deutsche Trend) 16
    UK R&B Albums Chart 30

    but Im guessing she must of went #1 in Zimbabwe? yeahh…

  183. theman December 21, 2010

    To the person that said they aren’t checking for Taylor good u don’t need to. She’s selling a shyt load of albums. What you should have done was purchase a 100 to 150k albums for Rihanna when her album first dropped so that she could finally get that number 1 album, thats keeps running away from here. Taylor does’nt have to be big around the world, the kind of music she does is big where it matters. Rihannas ww sales again are just a cop out for her lagging sales here in the state. When wiil u people learn that sales are based on shipments not actual sales, Rihanna has probably been gold as far as shipments are concerned. Wow she’s gold woopty damn doo. She’s not a new artists, so thats nothing to write home about. Imagine if she had released her album before the holidays, she probably would have only sold about 150k.

    What the hell does Taylor have to do with Mj, i was’nt speaking of those two as one on the same. Mj is in a league of his own. But Taylor is selling like hotcakes period.

  184. MR.B December 21, 2010

    THINGS CIARA SHOULD DO

    1.LOSE YOUR MANAGEMENT AND GET THE OLD ONE
    2.APOLOGIZE AND GO BACK TO JAZZE PHA
    3.STOP HANGING OUT WITH KIM KARDASHIAN
    4.LEARN SOME NEW DANCE MOVES AND STOP DOING THE MATRIX ITS OLD
    5.TAKE A BREAK EXPLORE YOURSELF AND WRITE SOME GOOD LYRICS
    6.PLEASE GET SOME VOICE LESSONS WE NEED TO HEAR SOME MELODIES AND HARMONIES IN YOUR VOICE

    WELL I LOVE CICI! AND ALWAYS WILL, HER MARKETING AND PROMO’S JUST NEED WORK,…. THE ALBUM IS JUMPING BUT HER & HER LABLE PICKED “NOT SO GOOD SINGLES,…. HER REAL FANS LOVE GIMME DAT, BUT EVERYONE ELSE SLEPT ON IT,..
    I JUST DONT UNDERSTAND HOW THEESE BLOGS CAN BE SOOOOOO RUDE AND HURTFULL, HAVENT YALL HEARD THE OLD SAYING :”IF U AINT GOT NOTHING GOOD TO SAY DONT SAY NOTHING AT ALL?”
    I AM FROM ATLANTA AND PROUD OF IT! AND WE WILL FOREVER LOVE CICI NO MATTER WHAT! THATS WHY I LOVE ATL AINT NOTHING BUT LOVE HERE,.. I GOT HER ALBUM AND JUST GOT KERIS. … THERE SHOULD BE ROOM FOR EVERYONE,… CANT WE ALL JUST GET ALONG?
    WELL BE SURE TO CHECK HER OUT ON THE MONIQUE SHOW TONIGHT!! ILL BE THE CRUNK DUDE IN THE AUDIANCE WAVING THE ALBUM COVER,..LOL

  188. Jasmine December 21, 2010

    Rio J Ciara’s CD flopped because she is trynna be pop but fails at it. If she was more urban her CD would have sold. If you are an urban artist you have to satisfy your urban consumer base first. Ride was ok and she should have promoted it more. The other singles were whack with weak lyrics so it was bound to flop. Of course some atlanta people are going to like it because weak lyrics and dumb music is popular there. Maybe if they offered a two piece and a biscuit with the album more southern people would have bought it.

  189. rh December 21, 2010

    F*** u haters ciara is amazing and trust. Me she is workimg on 5th abum. Right now and gogo cici her album going to do good next week

  190. tttedf December 21, 2010

    AWW, POOR CIARA SHE WILL GET DROPPED SOON AND I CANT EVEN BELIEVE TANK OUT-SOLD HER,SHAME….

    AND YAY, FOR R KELLY…..SIDE-EYES TO MJ, THAT ISHH AINT HIM

  191. fools dont understand POLITICS December 21, 2010

    IF YOU FOOLS HAD A BRAIN YOU WOULD REALIZE THAT CIARA’S CAREER IS JUST A PART OF THE TAKE DOWN OF ALL MUSICANS THAT RAP OR ARE ASSOCIATED WITH RAP. OBAMA PROMISED OLD NEGROES HE WOULD RESTORE RHYTHM AND BLUES AND WOULD DESTROY RAP. THAT’S WHY R KELLY LEFT RAP ALONE.

    CIARA PROBABLY SOLD 100,000 BUT RECORD COMPANIES ARE BEING PAID TO LIE ABOUT THE NUMBERS SO THAT THE MUSIC WILL BE ABANDONED. BE CAREFUL WHO YOU VOTE FOR.

  192. The Truth December 21, 2010

    ok. First off.. Everybody who is asking “HOW DO U ONLY SELL 40K” my question to yall is….. WHERE IS YALL MUSIC?? ARE YALL SELLING MORE???… 2nd… everybody talking about what Rihanna sold… I bet if Ciara got her ass beat and made references to it on Diane Sawyer she would be selling albums too. Half of yall love her and have her f****** album BUT yall downloaded it… You probably playing it in your room right now but you just want to log on and talk s***. 3rd. How is that yall know so much about what makes a good album?? Have yall recorded any??? ( OF KNOWN RECOGNITION) please let us know….. 4th…her album probably sold more then RIhanna if you add all the people who Downloaded it illegally…So as far as her Keeping up with the Kardashians…hell as long as they her friends the b**** will never be broke…

  193. SATAN HATES GOD’S ANGELS December 21, 2010

    Almost 38,000 UNITS IN A WEEK, EQUATES TO ABOUT $380,000 DOLLARS. WHEN HAS YOUR SORRY A** BROUGHT IN $380,000 TO YOUR COMPANY IN THE UNITED STATES MARKET ALONE, PLUS OVER ONE MILLION IN THE EUROPEAN MARKETS. YOU ARE SOME STUPID ISHES.

  194. kelly December 21, 2010

    So far, the new album by rapper Soulja Boy hasn’t exactly been able to “crank dat.” MTV reports that “DeAndre Way” sold only 13000 copies in its debut week.

    Stopping by the Angie Martinez show last night, Rihanna appeared aware of the looming low numbers (and the flack she may receive for it), saying:
    “Never have I ever stressed out on the first week. Ever since ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’, the first week was like 16,000, and it grew to sell half million albums. The first week never determines what the success of the album will be.”

    Rapper Nelly has blamed his label Motown Records for the poor sales of his latest album 5.0. The album has so far only sold 63,000 copies stateside.

    Christina Aguilera´s soundtrack was #2 during the whole week, and sometimes even #1 in itunes the week it was released, but still ended up lower Top 20 with around 50k sold.

  195. MJ turning over in his GRAVE December 21, 2010

    MJ is turning over in his grave knowing that some old UNHEARD of white woman outsold him. R Kelly and Ciara have got to scratch their head and wonder about it too

  196. theman December 21, 2010

    To those 2 bootleg idiots on that video, that look like they shoot their so called show behind an abandoned store. Shut ur mouth. Beyonce’ has 16 grammys but alot of them are political. Everyone knoes that Mariah is a musical genius and derved far more grammys. Beyonce’s father has alot of clout in this industry. So the one in the grey shirt sounds stupid. What was the issue then back in 03′ when Beyonce’ was hot as the sun. Her album did’nt meet expectations, yet Usher comes along to sale 10 million, and so does Norah Jones in 03′, better u Mariah comes back and sales 6 million in the US alone, when many were so called writing this genius of her craft off. Beyonce’ just does’nt sale what is expected of her.

    Nobody said that they expected her to sale 100 million albums but with all of the hype she has u would think that she would sale alot more than what she has. As far as hits are concerned the dude is misinformed again, Mariah has 18 number one hits, thats not counting the amount of top 10 hits she has.

    I’m about to shut everything down right now

    Musicbox or Daydream – Worldwide > Beyonce’s whole solo career

    The Grammys don’t give Mariah her just but she won Best New Artist when she came out, Beyonce’ did’nt. Beyonce’ lost album of the year to Taylor Swift. Does that loser on youtube really wanna talk stupid…………

  197. GravyTrain December 21, 2010

    Congrats MICHAEL JACKSON!!! You still da man, baby!

    And Mike woulda felt sad about the slow sales of beautiful & classy Ciara because she was “his lady” too. She’s BAD!

  199. Congrats to RiRi December 21, 2010

    Mariah is NO LONGER relevant than Cedric. She is the most visible as she always has to have a product out there but her sale have been declining BADLY for the last 3 years. Ciara has no talent nor voice.

    That does not happen to an ‘irrelevant’ artist and I’d bet you money that Mariah album will drop to $4.99 after the New Year’s eve.

    Rihanna’s has already gold with 500K sales…not bad for ‘talentless’ artist.

  200. JEN JEN December 21, 2010

    I think MJ’s new album should be number one.. its better then taylor swift i think the chic is boring to me she always sings the exact same.. its always the same ole same ole gets old after awhile .. susan boyle yea she can sing.. but they aint no Michael Jackson I just think theres so much more substance on his album then these others… theres always a different sound within each song.. i find with some artists in there songs feels like theres something missing.. but with Mj its like all the gaps are filled. every time i listen to the new MJ cd i hear something different. that i didnt notice before. i think his album should be doing alot better.. cause lets face it hes the best selling artist of all time and no one is ever going to top him never.

  201. Tarrina December 21, 2010

    When I when to get R. Kelly album at target they only had one row and it was empty, so I asked for it and the worker told me that they had 44 copies left, he went in the back and brought out EIGHT more copies. Taylor had a full RACK of albums, there was no way you would miss it, it was so in your face. Kandi album is very good, don’t sleep on it. Let’s support our artists.

  203. joe December 21, 2010

    Jasmine-b****,please! I happened to be on two biggest music boards when Taylors “Speak Now” leaked. They both blew up. Stop fcking making excuses.

    Her last album was pretty big internationally, too. So will this one, when she starts to release uptempo songs. Europe does not care for ballads, they want to shake their asses. That is why Rihanna is doing so well there. Selling s** plus uptempo songs=european success.

  204. Go RiRi December 21, 2010

    This album LOUD is selling….please..1.2 million in February…!!!!

  205. baby December 21, 2010

    ciara deserves it . i hate her album its even worse than her last and i loved evolution! i wish she didnt try to please everybody mixing pop rnb n dance together cuz clearly it goes below average for her

    People can be soo cruel. OK we get it, Ciara didn’t sell much.
    All you gotta say is u liked or didn’t like the album. No need to get so damn personal, calling her all types of names and laughing about it.
    At the end of the day, she is a person who is not doing very well in her career, how that is so funny, I don’t know. I feel sorry for her coz she worked the best she could, her management are partly to blame (a huge part).
    I respect that she still holds her head up and doesn’t quit.
    With the right team this girl can do absolutely great, her singing has improved a lot and she is an amazing performer.

    First off Taylor Swift is in another genre & of course country people do not bootleg music there; but another front Susan Boyle is another genre also like opera or classical music.

    But, R Kelly is R&B and has the number # 1 R&B album out selling over $150,000 copies in the U.S. not counting itunes stats? U.K. R Kelly has touched platinum status is the reason why ” When a woman’s love” was nominated for a Grammy.

    MJ is pop so you can’t slide that over to R&B. For you haters like Natalie your still sniffing coke hahahaha.

    R Kelly has the best album of the year with song of the year! Trey Songz is not even relevant today!

  214. Ch… December 21, 2010

    R. Kelly had 0 promo and still managed to sell 150K first week! KING of R&B!

    Poor Ci-error! 37K in a Holiday season? Dreadful!

  215. Robier December 21, 2010

    Wow lol

  216. Yasmine December 21, 2010

    SMH diddy did under 100k? with all the promotions he did? he gave out free cds to every show he went to! he was throwing the cds out the window basciallysmh

    i would be embarassed if i was him. all that money and he couldnt break 100k! smh

    and ciara boo ever since you started to hang with kim kardashian your career has gone down! you thought you would get the mainstream (white people) support but you didnt.

    drop kim. drop jive. sign with live nation. let jayz help you. take 2 years off. and get your head right. and come back. smh this is pathetic!

  217. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN! December 21, 2010

    I cant believe some of these comments saying.. country fans dont bootleg music. obvs there are country fans that do.. as is the case with every type of music.. The reason country music sells loads in the states.. is because it appeals to more people, then any other type of music… as has a loyal fanbase… and fans do stick by their favorite artist. . Also i could download her cd, i know the sites in which to do so… we country fans aint dumb!!
    People that do bootleg music.. need to look at themselves.. because what they’re doing is stealing.

    So stop making excuses to the reason why Taylor Swift is out selling all your favorites!!!

  218. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN! December 21, 2010

    wtf.. mainstream white people??? look in the top 10 of the billboared 100.. 7 of the 10.. are not white artist’s…… White music isnt anymore mainstream then black music!

  219. Faye December 21, 2010

    That is really bad even Paris Hilton sold more than that in her first week. She needs to go away from the music and do something else. I think shes not doing well because people are just not interested in her anymore, also her music is very dated, and she doesnt really have a big fanbase. She could be very successful in something else, there are loads of artists that dont sell well and do other things to make money. Look at Jessica Simpson, shes never been a big seller, she did something else like her clothing line and its made a billion and she makes millions a yr. She needs to just try something else.

  220. Chile Please! December 21, 2010

    I don’t feel bad for Ci-Error at all!! When you can’t sing you just can’t sing & people will not support you. Kandi’s album is the s***….i’m sooooooooooooooooooo surprised she didn’t sell an abundance of albums. Tank i’m soooooooo disappointed….you know I love you Tank but why did you do this boring ass album that sound like just one whole song???? It’s definitely not touching “S**, Love, & Pain!” That album was the s***! The rest…..eeeeeeeeeeehhhh!!!

  221. theman December 21, 2010

    Only haters are wisihing for Mariah noit to do well. Well keep on wishing because she continues to shine. She’s selling nearly 70k this week. Get over ur irrelevant a** flops. This is a Christmas concept album, not a regular Lp. She’s outselling many of ur favorites, while nobody is checking for them. Maraihs in her own lane. She’s cruisng on the The Mariah Train To Success ! The same nobodys are in every thread. Flops are not still on the Billboard charts. Could ur favorite do a Christmas Lp and do it like Mariah. Not Happening ! R.i.p to all of you haters that have nothing else to do but hate, haven’t u realized that u are still a nobody.

  222. Maya What December 21, 2010

    I feel really bad for CiCi like damn what happened? I must say I was shocked when I heard her album was dropping Tuesday. I didn’t hear any info or promo of it. All I was herein was it was being pushed back again and again and again. I heard a cut that leaked called Shut’Em Up I thought that was going to be on the album? Not sure what happened but that was a hot track. I guess they decided not to add it to the album to bad it was the business!
    Hopefully CiCi can regroup and switch things up and learn from this mistake and work it out in the future because Basic Instinct is a flop.

  223. JASMINE! JASMINE! December 21, 2010

    @JAYLA

    B**** PLEASE!!!!!!!

    Dont come onto this blog and start talking s*** about how much black people undermine their artists, because the truth is- THEY DON’T!!! When Christina Aguilera’s album and first single came out, everybody, INCLUDING PEREZ HILTON AND JAY LENO, made comments about her so-called new ‘RE-INVENTION’ of herself and questioned whether it would FLOP! Heck, JIMMY KIMMEL even did a skit about her ‘NMT’ video on his show!!!

    AND IF BLACK PEOPLE NEVER SUPPORTED THEIR “FAVES” – ARETHA FRANKLIN, PATTI LABELLE WHITNEY, M.J, DIANA ROSS, JANET, MARIAH, MARY.J.BLIDGE, JAY-Z, BEYONCE even CHRIS BROWN etc… WHERE THE F*** WOULD THEY BE???????

    ERRRRRRR……. PLEASE EXPOUND? (THESE PEOPLE ARE LEGENDS OF MUSIC)

    ANYWAY… *Wasting no more time with the mental asylum’s escaped convicts*

    I actually feel bad for Ciara, I mean, I actually bought her album and it’s ‘very well put together’! But dayumm, 37, 000+ is a SHAMBLES! Her chances are waring thin

  224. Brit December 21, 2010

    R kelly and Michael Jackson did not flop. For how the music industry is today, they both did very good. Hell Diddy-Dirrty Money flop, they didn’t even break the 100,00 mark.

  225. RonaldMatters.com December 21, 2010

    Tank’s album is [REALLY] good.

  226. Carmen December 21, 2010

    @jasmine! jasmine! U do realize wen aretha and all of them were succeeding, they didn’t have to go through the issues of illegal downloading and bootlegging? Illegal downloading was probably the worst thing to happen to urban artist.

    @taylor swift fans u think the majority of Taylor fans sell bootleg copies? No. Country fans have always supported their artists.

    I heard a new ciara song the other day. What is she doing some kind of techno type of stuff cuz it sounded terrible to me. I’m not feeling it at all.

  227. Jermaine December 21, 2010

    DREAM WAS CORRECT… “BASIC INSTINCT” WAS CIARA’S FINAL SHOT AT SOLIDIFIYING HER SPOT IN THE RECORDING INDUSTRY.. YA”LL CAN SAY WHAT U WANT ABOUT RIHANNA< BUT RIHANNA IS LAUGHING ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK.

    TO CIARA'S RECORDING CAREER

    PLEASE R.I.P.

  228. tones December 21, 2010

    I still bought Ciara’s album, so I don’t care what # she debuted at, I was stocked that R. Kelly sold that much and Kandi hardly sold anything. I wasn’t expecting DDM to sell that much and I expected MJ to sell at least 300K. Well I guess R&B is on the decline in the music industry, because the only 4 R&B acts who sold well this year were Monica, Trey Songz, Sade and now R. Kelly.

  229. sierra December 21, 2010

    i just…I CANT. ciara you done. you gone girl. like tyra said, “you must pack your bags, and….go….home….” BOOM BYE

  230. Secret Voice December 21, 2010

    C.C . actually sold a little over 31,000(ouch).I have never got the hate that Ciara receives,she seems sweet.

  231. ivica December 21, 2010

    This is s…,Michael is not on first place!!!!Who the f… buying albums from Susan & Taylor? For information they are unknown in other country then USA and England.M.J. is No.1 in the world!!!!!!!!!

    @ TheMan:

    And Taylor winning Album of The Year wasn’t political? LMAO, please! Matthew Knowles is far from being the ONLY person on the committee, in case you haven’t noticed, so you need to stop with the “her daddy bought her Grammys” b*******. If you wanna say she didn’t deserve to win them, just say so, but you lose all credibility when you make up some over-the-top crap about her Grammys being “bought”. Lots of artists over the years have won Grammys that many people felt were undeserved. Did they all have relatives on the committee?

  235. friend December 22, 2010

    I don’t know if most people out there know but there is a SERIOUS boycott of the new Michael Jackson album by his “fans”.

    Many of them the world over are angry at Sony.

    Some went so far as to boycott Sony offices.

    The issue: Fake tracks

    Many of his fans are so angry and disgusted they refuse to buy this album including NeYo who said he is “disgusted” and will not even listen to it.

    Will.I.Am is also upset.

    MJ did GREAT in sales with all of this nonsense going on and he only sold about 30,000 copies less than Swift and Boyle.

    He would have easily beat them if his fans weren’t so angry: and they are real mad.

  236. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN! December 22, 2010

    I love every week when the sales figures come out and all the stans argue their case for their artists.. its funny, how people get so worked up about it:)

  237. friend December 22, 2010

    I’m not upset. I say congrats to Taylor. I think she’s sweet.

    But I’ve been around long enough to know that her time is equally limited.

    They all have their time in the sun and then……..someone new comes along.

  238. Aly December 22, 2010

    @taylor swift number 1 fan
    Taylor cant even sing and she’s talentless, so shut up. Ppl buy the album because it’s TAYLOR SWIFT,not bcos its truly great. Michael is a postphoned album and 224k++ copies sold is already amazing, and i bet it’ll get better in weeks. And in billboard, the position in the chart is not always based on the sales. Taylor’s songs are all the same. Even ciara has more talent compared to taylor. MJ sold 10 times better than taylor at his peak. Taylor has just survived 4 years, well lets see if she could outsell MJ ‘s numbers now, in 10 years, when her best moments have already gone. And PS: MJ is 52 YO, and he’s dead..but, he can sold 200k+ in a week. I doubt a dead taylor swift can do that.

  239. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN! December 22, 2010

    @Aly The comments you made are so dumb. So people buy the album because its Taylor Swift.. you could say the same for Micheal jackson. Also, saying Micheal jackson can sell that much after his death aged 52, when his been going for 40 plus years and has so many fans.. that isnt such a lot is it? It was only 18 months ago.. that his death shocked the world… so 224,000 isnt much at all.
    Also you cant talk about sales of artist now, compared to that of 30 years back.. Acdc’s album sold 45 million copies.. do you think, if that came out now.. it would sell that many?? No of course not… You can only compare album sells to albums that come out at the sametime.
    How’s Taylor swift talentless.. she probs just isnt your taste in music!

  240. Aly December 22, 2010

    @taylor swift number 1 fan
    Well, MJ’s album is so much better than taylor’s. Why? Because every single track in it does not sound the same. Taylor is so talentless, well you, as a fan should have watched her live performances. Its not once or twice, it is bad all the time. taylor is a new artist..she may top the album sales now, but in decades, she will dissappear, because people are bored with her type of song that always sound similar. MJ still even sells a lot of albums, although his image has already been black (child abuse, plastic surgery, Trials, debts,etc) he has experienced and gone through the rough part, and he is still successful. But taylor? She’s still sweet, innocent and has not experienced the dark side of the business. Well some artists could survive and be back on top again such as (MJ, eminem, britney,etc), but some others fail, and thrown away. Well, i’m bored with taylor’s music, and i found out that a lot of other ppl also agreed. When i heard her for the first, second, and several times, its great. But after a while..umm, not really. And taylor even hasnt had a #1 hit yet.

  241. Aly December 22, 2010

    Is this website Reliable? Well..i only trust soundscan and billboard

  242. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN! December 22, 2010

    @ALY You think his album sounds better, well that’s just your opinion. I’d rather listen to a taylor swift album anyday.. rather then the new micheal jackson album. I bet most tracks on the new micheal sound the same, i’ve not listend to it though.. but i’ve heard the lead track from it, and it’s not my thing. Yeh, his image has been through a lot.. but plastic surgey… debts and to some degree the child abuse claims are his own doing. You say, loads of others agree.. then why after 8 weeks, she still outselling, every other artist then? People love her.. and yeh theirs people that will be bored with her music.. but theirs people like that for every artist. She might not have a long career, but who can say she wont. Also shes doing acting right now, so you’ll be seeing her on tv etc.

  243. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN! December 22, 2010

    Well, Swift triumphs, as her “Speak” sells 259,000 (up 29%), according to Nielsen SoundScan, and returns to No. 1 for a third non-consecutive week. She beats out Boyle by 5,000 copies, as “Gift” falls one slot to No. 2 with 254,000 (up 5%). Swift’s “Speak” total rises to 2.6 million, holding as 2010’s third-best selling set. It stands behind only Eminem’s “Recovery” (3.2 million) and Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now” (3 million). It’s been six weeks since “Speak” was on top, marking the longest gap between No. 1 frames for an album since Alicia Keys’ “As I Am” stepped aside for eight weeks between Dec. 1, 2007 and Jan. 26, 2008.

THEY DONT BAN ALL THE OTHER NEGATIVE ARTISTS ON THEIR SHOWS.SUCH HYPOCRITES! I THINK SHE SHOULD JUST HOPE IT REACHES PLATINUM ONCE,BY MILKING IT FOR SINGLES.DONT TRY AND DO A RIHANNA ,AND PUT AN ALBUM OUT EVERY YEAR.LET FOLKS REALLY TAKE TIME TO FEEL THIS ONE.

  246. Tom December 29, 2010

    Taylor Swift’s latest album is no.1 ONLY in the US. Whose new album is no.1 now WORLDWIDE????? Of course, it’s “Michael”. Please people – let’s not just base it on US charts. Does the global sales give us the COMPLETE picture??????????? It’s only MJ who crosses borders. I’m from Asia and MJ is well loved here!

    Global Chart Report
    Michael’s greetings from the beyond
    Friday, December 24, 2010
    by Fred Chuchel, Dresden

    One and a half year after his tragic death, Michael Jackson turns back to the top spot of the global album chart with a new set, simply titled as ‘Michael’. The album contains previously unreleased songs,
    which wrote Michael in his last years… and 734.000 fans globally bought this set in its first week at retail. ‘Michael’ sends last week’s chart-topper, Susan Boyle’s ‘The Gift’, back down at no.2, despite a 15% sales increase to 455.000 copies. Anyhow, due to high demand before christmas, 32 of the 40 albums on the tally show sales increases this week. For example Take That’s ‘Progress’, which slides at no.3, but grows up another 43% in sales to 414.000 copies, following by the biggest gainer of the week, Rihanna’s ‘Loud’, which loses also one slot and goes down at no.4 but wins 47% in sales to 409.000 copies. Rounds out the top five is Taylor Swift’s ‘Speak Now’ (up 27% to 320.000 copies). Behind ‘Michael’ there are only three other debuts this week: Bump Of Chicken from Sakura, Japan opens at no.10 with their new effort ‘Cosmonaut’ (207.000 copies). R&B crooner R.Kelly bows at no.15 with ‘Love Letter’ (161.000 copies) and finally rapper Diddy also known as Puff Daddy arrives at no.29 with ‘Last Train To Paris’ (102.000 copies). COMPLETE GLOBAL ALBUM CHART
    In the christmas week the Black Eyed Peas hold tight the peak position of the global track chart. ‘The Time (Dirty Bit)’ scores a third week and grows up another 2% to 377.000 points. In its 9th week on the tally, Katy Perry’s ‘Firework’ reaches a new high and climbs at no.2 (up 9% to 323.000 points). Rihanna’s ‘Only Girl (In The World)’ slips at no.3 (down 4% to 315.000 points). Matt Cardle, this year’s winner of the british casting-show ‘X Factor’, bows at no.4 (306.000 points) with a cover of Biffy Clyro’s ‘Many Of Horror (When We Collide)’. Matt’s version sold more than 450.000 copies in the start-week
    in United Kingdom and Ireland. Far behind at no.23 opens the second highest debut, Lil Wayne feat. Cory Gunz’ ‘6 Foot 7 Foot’ (111.000 points).Hey! Say! Jump’s ‘Arigat�’ comes in at no.26 (108.000 points) and Chris Brown’s ‘Yeah Yeah Yeah’ flies at no.35 (86.000 points). Outside the top 40 waiting Diddy Dirty Money feat. Skylar Grey’s ‘Coming Home’ at no.41, Waka Flocka Flame feat. Roscoe Dash & Wale’s ‘No Hands’ at no.42 and the Trashmen’s ‘Surfin’ Bird’ at no.48 for their first appearance on the big list. COMPLETE GLOBAL TRACK CHART
    20 years ago… the german project Enigma was the big surprise of the season. The album ‘MCMXC a.D.’ and the lift-off ‘Sadeness Part 1’ with their unusual mixture of gregorian chants, black rhythms and synthie-sounds � la Art Of Noise and Vangelis were enormous global successes. The mastermind behind Enigma is composer, producer and mulit-instrumentalist Michael Cretu, who was born 1957 in Bucarest, Romania and moved to Germany in 1975. First success he celebrated as producer for her wife Sandra (‘Maria Magdalena’) in 1985. Sandra was also the featured vocalist of Enigma. ‘Sadeness Part 1’ started at October 29, 1990 at no.92 on the official german hitlist by Media Control. Already two weeks later it jumped at no.1. At this time no one knew, who was behind the Enigma-project. Short time later the song entered all international charts: no.1 in United Kingdom, France, Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Norway, Austria, Switzerland, no.2 in Australia and New Zealand. In the USA it was no.5 on the airplay / sales mixed chart and no.1 on the pure sales chart by Billboard. On the global chart ‘Sadeness Part 1’ went also at the summit. Three years later Enigma landed a 2nd big smash with ‘Return To Innocence’.
