Four months removed since the release, Ciara‘s self titled fifth studio album can now boast of a US Gold single by way of the R&B effort ‘Body Party’ and Hot 100 Top 40 cut in the Dance number ‘I’m Out.’
However, despite the glory they attained in that market, both did very little to push the project internationally, with ‘Party‘s highest position held outside the nation being #43 on Belgium’s Flanders Ultratip Urban chart.
So, just how their predecessor ‘Overdose’ put both cuts to commercial shame?
The answer to that question, below…
Upon its release in the Republic of Korea, the soulful Pop single sold 359,541 units in a single week- arming with it the commercial wings it used to soar to #20 on the Gaon International Digital chart.
A week later, it shifted a further 134,625 copies bringing its total sales to 494,166- holding its Top 50 spot by spending that week at #41.
Now, despite lacking a supporting music video or physical promotion in the nation, the single has cartwheeled its way past the 500,000 mark on a digital front, helped in great part by consistent spins garnered on the market’s Urban radio formats.
Marking the latest applause worthy feat to be scored by the entertainer, ‘Over’s Asian success comes as her 2004 debut ‘Goodies’ edge nearer to global sales of 5 million units, with 2.7 million of those being sold in the US.
