Ciara: ‘I’m Making A New Album’

Published: Wednesday 18th Dec 2013 by David

Is R&B Queen Ciara moving on to creative pastures new?

Yes, it has now emerged…announced by the singer during her recent time with Samia Arslane‘s ‘Genlux’ magazine.

Array

Details below!

 

No more than a year since the release of her latest LP ‘Ciara‘, the Grammy winning entertainer revealed:

“I’m in the process of making my new album. My inspiration is life and reality. It’s important to express myself musically. I am so connected to who I am now, and I now I want to share pieces of myself with the world.”

Fantastic news!

However, in being completely honest, one has to wonder if a new album is what Ciara needs at this point.

For, despite the groundbreaking success of ‘Ciara‘s ‘Body Party‘ in R&B’s lane, sales of its supporting album may give Epic‘s ‘big wigs’ serious pause if asked to allocate a fresh budget to a brand new album.

Perhaps, with her ever rising fashion ‘stock’ in mind, the next six months should be used to arm Brand Ciara with the ‘muscle’ she’ll need to launch an era that’d see her reach an audience far bigger than the one she’s currently targeting.

The relevance of the Ustream clip above?

Well, in an age where social media has seen the likes of Azealia Banks‘ become a household name without the benefit of a supporting album, reconnecting with her fans via mediums like the above would be the perfect way to strengthen/add numbers to  her core base before the release of a new LP.

Seem trivial? Perhaps. However, if the outlets many a Pop staple turn to for promotion aren’t booking her, the star’s best bet is to take matters into her own hands and force feed herself to the masses digitally.

Think ‘spontaneous’ Ustream sessions.

‘Random’ Twitter responses.

Carefully crafted ‘lifestyle’ oriented ‘Instagram’ snaps.

It’s these things, we posit, that’d buy Ci enough time to craft material and develop a cost-effective roll out, while generating the buzz she’d need to ensure that roll out pays off!

    This has me excited….’Ciara’ was a solid piece body of work. Let’s hope she focuses on more ‘Body Party’, ‘Sorry’, ‘Overdose’ and she’ll be good.

  2. BEYONCÉ December 18, 2013

  11. Molly December 18, 2013

    Can’t believe she just gave up on overdose like this smh this is bitter sweet :-\

  12. csrpp December 18, 2013

    I don’t care about her album sales.. Ciara is the reason why I’m standin, she is the reason why I’m pushin my dancing carrer, and she gives me more energy and power to me than anyone else. I will support her till death and can’t wait for her new album!

  13. Molly December 18, 2013

    Ciara please be serious with this next era put all your focus into your craft i dont want you to give up on this upcoming CD!

  14. Molly December 18, 2013

    @Slay_Hive messy b****!

  15. HOTSTUFF December 18, 2013

    LMFAO ….is u forreal Cici ? Gurl Good-Fukin-BYE.

  16. SLAY_HIVE December 18, 2013

    @Molly

    I love you too hun 😉

  17. toni December 18, 2013

    Sigh…..The problem with Ciara is she doesn’t listen to her fans. Her fans are the ones who will keep her in the music game. I don’t get her. i am not a fan but i liked Living it up and Overdose when i first heard them. Her fans begged her to release them. Nope. They are asking now and for a while for the video for Overdose. She only interacts with her fans when she needs them to push for her music to be played on the radio. Then she does a disappearing act.If she doesn’t start listening to her fans, she may lose a few of them.

  18. D December 18, 2013

    Thanks Cici, but I’ll pass.

  19. FreeBreezy December 18, 2013

    Same convo, different album. This shiz gettin old.

  20. Casual December 18, 2013

    Based on what I’ve read on this blog, she’s huge in South Korea. The foreign markets may be what persuade her label to finance another project.

  21. anonymous December 18, 2013

    @Slay Hive You are so right. LOL. is this flop for real? how about try promoting the Flop album you already have out this year. where is the overdose video? its only been a few months and you already moving on to the next album. that is why you have the lowest selling album of the year. you know you in a bad position when Kelly Rowland album sold more than your ass and R Kelly will pass you up too. you need to either promote what you have or retire from music.

  22. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 18, 2013

    And I am excited, go Cici.

  23. SLAY_HIVE December 18, 2013

    @Anonymous

    chile, after that comment. I don’t have anything further to say. You covered it all. LOOOOOL

  24. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 18, 2013

    You need to hire me as part of your team Click, I’ll work for free.

    We need to make this SMASH, I’m talking making Ciara a powerful brand again.

    We are starting again, with a new perspective so you better bring it. I’m ready.

  25. Nicki Is Queen Other B****** Take A Seat December 18, 2013

    She better come out with something sold or it’s game over! Her Stans are quick to defend her but when it comes to buying albums poof they are gone has her “Ciara” gone gold yet? Plat? No?

  26. Navy Nick December 18, 2013

    I don’t understand y they wont make this album work, ITS A REALLY GOOD ALBUM!!!!

  27. *ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ* December 18, 2013

    She is in the Process of making a New album, but what about “CIARA” ?

    What about The following:

    – The Videos She Filmed for other Songs? ” you know she previewed Some videos to be released later when CIARA was released, you remember?”
    – “Overdose” as a Single?
    – The Rest of The Era ?

    She give up so Soon and do a new thing always, never solve the problem, tells a lot about her.

    Does She produce write Deep Songs and I don’t know, because she talks as if she is Mariah carey or something!!!
    The Only Album that had me interested in her was “The Evolution”, Since then, she’s lost artistically to me.

    XD nonetheless but get it together ciara.

  28. The Boy Toy December 18, 2013

    Lmao…why?

  29. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 18, 2013

    @Pop Royalty

    The Evolution slayed and snatched wigs, that was Ciara at her best.

    You couldn’t escape like a boy.

    She should start there as inspiration.

  30. JER December 18, 2013

    Coming for that fall 2023 release

  31. Bey Fan December 18, 2013

    I hate when artist give up on albums…. even if they dont sell like that well She should at least put out Overdose… ughhh.

    Oh well, if she feels like she needs to move on, so be it. I just foresee the same thing happening. There were some good songs on Ciara.

  32. *ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ* December 18, 2013

    @Lovebird:

    she Truly Has so much to work on. 😀

    yes i like this album.

  33. SLAY_HIVE December 18, 2013

    Hey @BoyToy

    You miss me?

  34. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 18, 2013

    Ciara didn’t give up, she just ran out of the advance.

    Albums are based on an advance and if you use up the advance early, there’s nothing else you can do but hope there’s a profit against the advance so you can re-invest.

    Ciara just ran out of her advance for “Ciara” and will probably get a new one for this coming album.

  35. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) December 18, 2013

    Well she’s persistent I’ll give her that, It does seems very early though and where the heck is “Overdose?”

  36. Kendall December 18, 2013

    Hmmm

  37. social1 December 18, 2013

    Congrats to Ciara, but what is it with these artists as of late? I mean why are so man artists putting out “good” album, release one single, and then abandoning it? Ciara put out maybe 2 singles from the Ciara project, Kelly Rowland did the same with the “Talk A Good Game” project, …Christina Aguilera with the Lotus project (I’m still a little pissed about how that project was handled). LOL I get that they’re artists and they want to express themselves, but whatever happen to letting a project mature? (TV appearances, videos, etc…..) Do they have too much going on to really focus on the albums they’re releasing? Just a question that’s been bugging me. Am I the only one that feels this way?

  38. bitchpleasesssss December 18, 2013

    CHILD YOU AIN’T THE ONLY ONE.

  39. CherylSoldier December 18, 2013

    Ciara was never a powerful brand.

  40. Stephy Tha Lambily December 18, 2013

    Oh Ciara.

  41. Navy Commander December 18, 2013

    Chile when I saw this topic I about fell out my chair

  42. Navy Commander December 18, 2013

    At least gaga continues to push her album…

  43. Stephy Tha Lambily December 18, 2013

    I LOVE YOU PAUL….

  44. The Boy Toy December 18, 2013

    @slayhive

    Of course boo 😉 Let’s play fight under covers 😀

  45. Common Sense December 18, 2013

    Let’s be honest. Like Britney, Ciara has thrown in the towel.

  46. CIARA ARMY STAN December 18, 2013

    I love how Samn acknowledged the fact that Ciara is the true Queen of R&B not BEYCUMCE.

    Hehe.

    QUEEN CICI stans stand up!!!!!!!

  47. Hivy December 18, 2013

    Good for you Ciara. Please promote this time around. I’m here for you this time so you better slay my ancient wigs.

  48. Yonce December 18, 2013

    Wait, she released the self-titled album? Oh. I was still waiting. tbh.

  49. FutureCIARA December 18, 2013

    Back in the studio is what I like to hear…

    This era PLEASE “NO CAMEOS ON FLOP SHOWS LIKE…. THE GAME”

    Leave that s*** to the Brandy’s and Kellys of this world! I would say don’t even focus on acting.

    She needs to find out what she wants like how Beyonce asked the question in her documentary.

    WHAT DO YOU WANT???
    Do you want to be a successful singles artist??
    Do you want to sell millions of copies of albums??
    Do you want to have groundbreaking live world tours??

    Once she figures that out, then she can capitalize on those niche markets and focus on likely endorsements!!!

    Stay focused Ms.Thing

  50. CIARA – FOREVER A LOCAL FLOP December 18, 2013

    Let’s be honest, this B**** will always be a FLOP! She will never be on Beyoncé & Rihanna’s level – the only 2 black female pop/R&B artists slaying the world!

  51. Mark111 December 18, 2013

    She don’t have a choice. Take a page out of the book of Rihanna and release an album every year. The haters hate, but Rihanna is winning and is a force today. She need to promote Over Dose so it will cross over to the next album. Clara is no Beyonce, she need to stay in the scene til the next release.

  52. CherylSoldier December 18, 2013

    Ciara is the equivalent of an Avril Lavigne or an Ashanti. They just can’t sell/get people to care about them anymore.

  53. CherylSoldier December 18, 2013

    Maybe she should follow Rihanna and focus on features.

  54. BeyRihStan December 18, 2013

    Not @FutureCiara shading QUEEN Brandy. 30 million albums sold. Still relevant 20 years into her career When will Ciara?

    She should be honored to be on The Game! The show averages 4 million viewers. A number Ciara’s albums will NEVER see. Flop my ass! The nerve!

  55. A Keys Stan December 18, 2013

    She see all this success Bey havin with this new album and now she wanna try harder. But she is a VERY lazy promotors. I do give her props for tryin though

  56. FAF December 18, 2013

    YUSSS CAN’T WAIT. HOPE MORE POP S*** IS ON IT & I KNOW TGJ IS ANTICIPATING!!!!! LETS GIVE THESE GIRRALS MORE IDEAS! U INSPIRE THEM EACH ERA! x 🙂

  57. THE Z SQUARES FLOP TRANNY December 18, 2013

    LMAO AT PEOPLE SAYIN HE DOESNT CARE TO PROMOTE.NO THE GP JUST ISNT HERE FOR MY TRANNY FAV….WHY SHOULD HE WASTE MONEY AND TIME ON A FLOP???…THINK PEOPLE.

  58. anonymous December 18, 2013

    @Social you not the only one that feels this way. I remember back when artists used to spend more time promoting their albums and they would release about 4 or 5 singles off of their album and they would have videos for all of them instead of abandoning them. Artists lately seem lazy. they need to get back to making TV appearances and Videos and releasing more than 2 singles and maybe their wouldnt be as many flop albums

  59. Rosie December 18, 2013

    Four flop albums in a row, still hasn’t released the video for her current single, <1K capacity ballroom tour that was announced and has probably since been canceled since there's no dates listed, and is more concerned with being Future's 5th baby momma than her own career. She needs to hang it up.

  60. jay December 18, 2013

    Won’t be buying! I bought “Ciara” cause I wanted to support and it looked like she was actually going to promote it. I was wrong. Not falling for it this time… and idk who will.

  61. Bey-Minaj December 18, 2013

    Beyoncé will enjoy another week at #1 with 250-275k. Dead at Bey’s 2nd week being bigger than Ri’s 1st. LMAOOOOOOOOOO

  62. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 18, 2013

    The Evolution >>>>>>> Ciara > Goodies > the other garbage

  63. Nick Is Queen Other B****** Take a seat> December 18, 2013

    @lovebird cici is good as done because people don’t want to deal with her lazy ass. I mean who completely stops promoting an album that they recently dropped? where is the promotion? overdose?

  64. Lovebird (LOUDER – 04.03.14) December 18, 2013

    @Nick Is Queen Other B****** Take a seat>

    Obviously her label has given up on this project and have sent her back to the studio. It happens all the time.

    Just look at Alexandra Burke, after let it go video and the bombing of Heartbreak on Hold, they wanted to send her back the studio but she became a diva, so they dropped her.

    EPIC was probably looking at airplay and scrapped funding for the whole project and sent her back the studio, most likely due to the success of Livin it up and Overdose in Korea.

  65. *Nicki Is Queen Other B****** Take a seat> December 18, 2013

    @lovebird she needs a goddamn new label!

  66. CiCiRiDER December 19, 2013

    you stupid ass people always talking about how ci isnt consistent & shld release every year, now shes in the studio & youre complaining about that. Just because she recording a new f.cking album doesnt mean she’s giving up on this era. she just got through filming for OD. you people are dumb as f.ck.

  67. MISHKA December 19, 2013

    Ciara baby,

    It’s obvious now: you just CAN’T push an album. It’s not the fans or the music or the production, it all comes down to you, you get bored with your own stuff quickly. It’s okay though, but just admit it and start working around that.

    You still very popular and you have a great personnality, I think you should be a judge on a talent show or an actress on NCIS or something. Just get a regular job that will keep you in the news, and release a single from time to time, like Kelly Rowland does.

    The reason why “Body Party” didn’t get nominated has to be the lamest excuse I’ve ever heard. You should have fought harder to catch that Grammy nod, it was your comeback song! I don’t feel like you fought for it to make it happen, you weren’t even frustrated or angry. You don’t care that much anymore. So maybe it’s time to move on.

  68. CARMEN December 19, 2013

    lmao who even cares for her anymore? she paid Ciara dust after it got released. instead of promoting it, she went on a holiday. i have a feeling this new album will suffer the same fate. even Nelly Furtado who had the biggest flop still stuck by her album, released singles, videos and even went on tour to support it; for that Ms. Furtado has my respect.

  69. #JusticeforBionic December 19, 2013

    What a loser! Doesn’t this MAN know she is a flop b**** this is the 4th one Epic drop this poor dumb ho

  70. #JusticeforBionic December 19, 2013

    The Z squad can remain PRESSED how delusional them coming for artists like Godtina and Godga when this b**** is nowhere on the charts bahahahahaha @super flopsus @mole

  71. #JusticeforBionic December 19, 2013

    Beyonce remains UNBOTHERED

  72. FutureCIARA December 19, 2013

    YOU PEOPLE ARE IGNORANT WHEN IT COMES TO WHO IS REALLY RUNNING THE SHOW, THE ARTIST OR THEIR LABEL….

    CIARA IS NOT AT THE LEVEL OF A WORLD WIDE ICON TO BE MAKING HER OWN DECISIONS, SHE MUST FIRST PROVE HERSELF WHICH IS WHAT SHES TRYING TO DO NOW. HER LABEL MAKES DECISIONS ON WHETHER TO AXE A POJECT OR KEEP SPENDING COINS TO PUSH AN EFFORT BASED UPON HOW ITS RECEIVED.

    IF IT WERE UP TO HER IM SURE SHE WOULD HAVE CONTINUED PROMOTING THIS PROJECT, SHES VERY CREATIVE, BUT SHE MAY NOT HAVE SEEN SOMETHING THAT HER LABEL FORESAW…… AND MAYBE SOME LABELS NEED TO START LISTENING MORE TO THE ARTIST AND THAT ARTISTS FAN BASE.

    WHAT I POSTED EARLIER WAS NO SHADE TO BRANDY, HELL IF THE SHIIT WORKS FOR HER, IT WORKS FOR HER…… BUT IF ONES GOAL IS TO BE A GLOBAL SUPERSTAR, TRUST ME AND BELIVE IT DOES NOT BEGIN BY MAKING APPEARANCES ON B.E.T LOW BUDGET SERIES, WHERE THE ACTING IS MEDIOCRE…..

    SEE FOR BRANDY THAT WORKS FOR HER BECAUSE THATS HER LANE, SHE WAS AN ACTOR TURNED MUSIC ARTIST, OR IT COULD BE THE OTHER WAY AROUND… MY POINT IS THAT SHES BEEN DOING IT FOR YEARS WHERE AS CIARA IS NOT AN ACTRESS! NOT ENOUGH TO BE ON RECURRING ROLES ON THE GAME WHILE STILL TRYING TO FOCUS ON MUSICAL PROJECTS.

    MY POINT IS SHE NEEDS TO STAY FOCUSED AND RELEASE QUALITY MATERIAL AND BUILD SUCCESSFUL RELATIONSHIPS AND GET ENDORSED.

    IF IT WERE UP TOO ME SHE WOULDNT HAVE BEEN GETTING ENGAGED EITHER. BUT IF IT COUNTS TOWARDS HER HAPPINESS AND BETTER MUSIC BECAUSE OF HER SITUATION, IM ALL FOR IT!

    I DO UNDERSTAND MOST OF THESE COMMENTS WRITTEN, AND I AM COMPLETELY NO BEING BIASED AT ALL. I KNOW PEOPLE ARE TIRED OF GIVING THIS GIRL CHANCES, BUT IM JUST SAYING CUT THE GIRL A BREAK, AT LEAST YOU SEE HER HARD AT WORK, AND MAYBE SOME OF THE BLAME NEEDS TO BE SHIFTED TOWARDS ”THE BIG WIGS” WORKING BEHIND HER CAREER.

  73. PINK V***** December 19, 2013

    B**** go to hell i wanted you to slay me hard with the Overdose video and you gave up on it just like that. Cant believe Im Out recieved a video and she totally ditched overdose.Idk about her anymore because THREE flop albums in a row is really serious,she has to get her s*** together and really foucus and put her heart and soul on this next cd. Good luck cici.

  74. cocobutta December 19, 2013

    If this is the case I want a tour planned also. Maybe with Danity Kane.
    Where the team miss the trick is she is an beast dancer and entertainer.

    Ciara is a talented heffa but she just got to up the levels: Quailty music that’s current with mixture that shows her off as an artist (energy & performance).

    Ciara whole package should be based of music she can do routines to & then throw in a few R&B numbers to balance it out.

    TAKE YOURSELF SERIOUSLY and get producers who understand the lane you’re supposed to be in. PROMOTE and do NOT throw out random videos like last time as buzz. Be confident in the art.

    BIGGER STAGES AND PRODUCTION is the next phase.
    As much as I go off on Cici I see something in her & she is pretty & s*** which are perfect combo’s already

    (The stans go hard but they still need to be real and know she hasn’t got BACK to the heights she once tapped into “The Evolution album” + other songs like Work, High Price, Like A Surgeon, Goodies & LSM etc…

    *Now watching: Work

  75. what CiCI? December 19, 2013

    @ future ciara…. but she can make the decision to tour or not tho.

    Her performance skills are a big part of her brand and artists with a smaller fanbase like IGGY AZAELA, RITA ORA, AND AZAELIA BANKS all did tours and CIARA did not.

    CIARA didnt go over to do the European festival circuit, she did a few shows here ans there but no tour.

    She could have sold some tickets at a house of blues tour. if Iggy can sell out the HOBlues so can Ciara.

    I wonder if Ciara ever heard the story of Tina TURNERS comeback.

    TINA went to Europe and started doin shows….. BC she was such a strong performer she began selling out shows before her albums started selling over there.

    I give up on this dingbat. No direction, no drive

    it is now very clear why Rihanna surpassed Ciara…. npot because of talent but b./c of hard work , direction, focus, and drive.

  76. TheHive December 19, 2013

    Lmao we will drag again when he flops again!

  77. Renata December 19, 2013

    it is now very clear why Rihanna surpassed Ciara…. not because of talent but b./c of hard work , direction, focus, and drive.

    Let the church say AMEN!

  78. Nicki Minaj the queen December 21, 2013

    this b**** ciara needs to step up her game. Where is Overdose she needs to start listening to what her fans say because at the end of the day it´s HER fans that will buy her music not the label.
