‘This is only the beginning.’
With ten years held in the game and numerous accolades to show for it, there are some who find themselves becoming a little confused when the above sentence is uttered by R&B’s Ciara…ten years into her career.
However, as the case should be, the entertainer’s stance on her career comes from a more informed place by those who week to belittle her potential and achievements.
For, while her self-titled album didn’t bring in the numbers it’s well oiled promo-machine had called for, the campaign- as you’ll see below- was not in vain.
In fact, the efforts employed to push the album have now gone on to form a firm foundation for the next level of her career.
Not following us?
Exciting news below…
Thanks to the Epic Records / Lisa Ellis media storm created to push the album and its supporting singles, 2013 saw a sizeable spike in Ciara‘s popularity. This, not an opinion but a Billboard-backed fact.
For, while this storm didn’t pull in the numbers many had hoped for on an album front, it did see the general public take to the net to enjoy all the star’s videography/discography had to offer, earning her a spot on Billboard’s ‘Streaming Songs Artist‘ chart.
That’s right, coming at #23 the performer stands proud as the only R&B entertainer to make this year’s list, securing more streams than ‘The Way‘ singer Ariana Grande and Hip Hop Tsar Jay Z, who came in at #25.
Indicative of the general public’s renewed interest in the ‘Promise‘ performer, her arrival on the competitive tally will come as welcome news to her ever-rising fan base the ‘C-Squad‘, who took her smash hit ‘Body Party’ to Gold with sales of over 500,000 units in the US alone.
So, with her continued digital success in mind, we ask you…
Yaaaaaas SLAY ON QUEEEN! 2014 WILL BE AN AMAZING YEAR FOR YOU QUEEN.
So happy for Ciara. She truly deserves success.
This is a top 25 and Ciara is at 23, while Rihanna at #10. smh
I haven’t seen Trannymar in any top 25 year end list kiiiii
I love the way you always look for the positive with Ci, I saw this chart but didn’t realise what it meant until you put it in perspective.
OK Ciara girl, I see you slaying in your own way.
That Ciara Juice staying give us good news on the Queen. #LoveYall
Slay a bit sis.
You better slay b****>>>>>>>
TGJ are biased. You used to list it out why didn’t you do it this time. Any way Ciara is #23 while Rihanna is #10. Good luck to all these Artist. I’m a lover of Good Music. #RihannaNavy4Life.
Thiefonce copies everything Ciara does, just like she copied Ciara’s sleek bob haircut.
Ciara shits on Rih and Bey.
Great for CIaRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
500k units i cant and i wont. Congrats! lol
Rihanna is 10 And ciara 23 Death! Body party only Sold 500k lolz!
I can’t…..lmmfaooooooooooooo @The Non Mutha Fawkin Factor Squad acting like this t***** has sold 500K n albums bwahahahahahahaha. THE QUEEN has left this t***** in the street lifeless! BEYONCE THE ALBUM 1.2 N SALES N 3 WEEKS>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Citranny last 3ALBUMS COMBINED! Wait! Why am i even waisting my time on this lesser b**** post???????? #BYE NON FACTOR B******
GEARING UP FOR AN EXPLOSIVE 2014! I see why they madd!
A Threat much??????
The girls on here stay pressed and bothered! Reason why every comment section turns into a Ciara fanclub
I THINK THE WORLD MIGHT BE READY FOR THAT LONG AWAITED (CIARA FT. CHRIS BROWN) STORM
The slayage that follows would really make The Navy seethe!!!
I wake up FLAWLESS!!! Say I look so good tonight GOT DAMN GOT DAMN GOT DAMN!!!!
For Ciara to be #23 is AMAZING, considering that she only released ONE video (BP) in 2013!!!!
Unlike Riwhoreanna who released Multiple videos in 2013 with no album, and could only manage the #10 spot.
This means All of Ciara’s older material was still being streamed and is still very much relevant!!!
Ciara is a BEAUTIFUL FLOP…
BEYONCE >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> C-Error
Still love her face tho…
HUH??? Ciara released more than 1 video this year…
Lol omg the 57kSquad are too pathetic, now I don’t know whether to drag or feel sorry for them? How you gonna be in the game for 10 years (longer than your contemporary who the 57kSquad love to shade) but still pull pitiful numbers like 57k, and take almost a year for your single to go gold, A WHOLE YEAR. Chile…let me stop
It’s sad to see how all this people like to bring this artist down
Ciara is big in her own market which is r&b unfortunetly ciara hasn’t
Have cross over appeal in the pop charts like beyonce,usher and rihanna
But that doesn’t make her any lesser of an artist you guys sound childish and pathetic
Bringing all this artist all these artist are great in their own unique way at the end of the day
True talent is the one that prevails stand test of time no matter how successful they where look at
Examples like aretha franklin and Etta James they’re legends and they don’t have the massive
Success as other artist did back in the day but they get tributes and they have been such influence now a days.
Bringing other artist down doesn’t make you a better person and you look stupid remember your fav right now
Can be on top but the next time she can be at the bottom nobody’s stays on top forever! Ciara can release a massive successful album the next time around so all of you need to stop the hate.
she better have her s*** together or its GAME OVER and say hello to being a housewife
Yes,she deserve it and much more!
Sorry, Got Me Good, Body Party, and I’m Out all got videos babe. Even the fans are flops.
This trick is such a damn flop. Being Futures 12th baby mama is her best bet right now.
Sam you act like she came in at #1.
She is #23 out of 25 acts,are you going to praise the other 22 artist that took a dump all over her?
The double standards are unreal!
I know Ciara doesn’t get any promo but damn! This post seems like it’s meant for people to shade her.
Again Beyonce>Ciara! Beyonce has been a blonde since 1997,s*** Mary J Blige and Faith Evans were rocking the blonde before all of them. Are you going to say Queen Mary and First Lady Faith copied Ciara too? The only similarities between the Beyonce and Ciara albums are that they are self titled.Beyonce the album sold more than The Ciara album in a Day,it has WAY more critical acclaim and is just an all around better album than the Ciara album.
So to answer the question,no the world isn’t ready for another Ciara album. The world paid her last three albums dust,and will more than likely do the same with album #6. No amount of delusions from the ever shrinking fanbase of hers will change that. Before you even come at me check the numbers,I gave nothing but facts! Take some Prozac and grab a chair with all that “Queen”,”Slay”,Beyonce “copied” blah and more blah.
I mean what else would you expect from a fan base who’s nickname sounds like a middle school step team lol
Congrats Ciara! Why does everything always have to be a competition.. So what that Rihanna is #10. The fact that she made the list is a big deal! Cheers to more success..I can’t believe its a new year and you immature fools are still talking the same s*** as last year..GROW UP!
Im not here for celebrating mediocrity. Congrats to Rihanna
Y’all f*** r f***** up
This is good so well done.
Need a few more video’s along the lines of got me good but just better materially like work.
I’m out is a underrated hit video. Loved it.
if you are goin to try and prove a point, PROVE IT WITH FACTS! sorry and got me good where released in 2012, they arent apart of this era! body party and im out where the only videos from her latest album.
Congrats Ciara. Can’t get through one post without yall comparing her to others people
Still a Flop. Bye.
@Cassie Lover, LMAO Dead at you stating that Cierror shits on Rih and Bey. Since when? But Rih and Bey can still sell an album. so therefore they’re still more relevant than Ci Flop. if it wasnt for Body party alone, nobody would be paying attention to this flop. B**** bye.
So happy for Ciara. I love her so much. She deserves all the success cause she’s talented and so humble and sweet just like King B. U go C!!
congrats ciara the album is so great.
Congratz to her. People plz stop comparing her to Rihanna. I mean we all know Rihanna sells alot but let Ciara be proud of what she did.
Anyway congratz to Ciara and Rihanna.
