‘Stream Queens’: Ciara & Iggy Azalea Sizzle & Soar On ‘VEVO’

Published: Friday 13th Mar 2015 by David

After finding a label sister in ‘Prisoner of Love’ performer Mariah Carey, Ciara joins Iggy Azalea to stand as one of two acts with good reason to celebrate this morning…both making major gains on the video sharing platform ‘VEVO.’

How fans of the Southern belles have pushed them to commendable heights in the last week?

All will be revealed, below…

The visual for Harris’ new single ‘I Bet’ impacted the platform on March 9th and has already been watched for a total of 9 years.

Yes, when the amount of time each viewer spent watching the clip is totalled, ‘I Bet’ can boast of being spun for the equivalent of nine years…in just four days.

The clip crossed the 500,000 spins barrier in the hour it was unveiled and currently sits at the 4,124,076 views mark and was played 1,442,403 times on March 11th.

Unfortunately, the clip has done very little to boost the star’s subscriber account, only attracting 963 new supporters after it was shared 14,158 times in the same space of time.


Elsewhere, Iggy Azalea‘s ‘Trouble‘ video makes its way to higher streaming ground this week, crossing the 8.5 million views plateau two weeks after it touched down on Pop soil.

The jam is the latest to be lifted from her latest body of work ‘Reclassified’ and has now seen its video shared 18,966 times online and drive 5,054 new YouTube subscribers in the ‘My World‘ performer’s direction.

As if that wasn’t enough to give the performer good reason to continue pushing the single, she’ll be pleased to learn that the visual has now been watched for the equivalent of almost three decades…29 years to be exact.

These stream queens aren’t the only chart staples with good news to celebrate today.

That’s right, for joining them to pop open an imaginary bottle of bubbly is Rihanna’s fan base!

For, their undying support of the ‘Home’ provider has seen her nab her latest platinum jam with the single ‘FourFiveSeconds.’

The release has now sold 1,102,000 units in the US alone and does so as Taylor Swift‘s ‘1989’ locks lips with the 4,504,352 sales mark, reaching the enviable spot after Usher‘s latest single ‘I Don’t Mind‘ cruised past the 700,000 unit mark in the same market.

Tinashe‘s ‘2 On‘ picks up a Gold certification in Australia for sales of 35,000 units while Elijah Blake‘s ‘Fallen‘ takes a bite into the 705,000 units sold/streamed apple this week, reaching the milestone with sales of 139,000 units sold by digital retailers.

    Tinashe wishes she could.

    • Iggy Longstocking March 13, 2015

      That traitor ass cow.

    • Molly March 13, 2015

      Tinashe is a fake b****, I hope all hands on deck flops.

      • Elijah’s Bijoux March 13, 2015

        So you’re dragging Tinashe because she didn’t want to go on a flop tour? Ok.

  2. Iggy Longstocking March 13, 2015

    Cedric a stream queen? Pure delusion! I flop was only relevant for 24 hrs no one cares anymore

  5. KING RIH March 13, 2015

    I don’t even want to understand this logic. Sounds like something flops would use as a way to justify Iow views

    After rereading, I get it. MY point still stands tho

    • FutureCIARA March 13, 2015

      Streams MATTER in this day and age in music, Its one of the ONLY reasons your fav has commendable success today, So don’t come in here knocking video views as if it didn’t accelerate Thotannas popcorn career.

  6. 내가 제일 잘 나가 March 13, 2015

    So glad for slayara, she needed this, but I hope she has strong plans to promote the next few singles.

      • A Sip of Brandy March 13, 2015

        Right behind Ciara’s relevancy in the unemployment line.

    • TheElusiveLamb March 13, 2015

      There is only ONE Janet Jackson and ONE Aaliyah as well.

      • RCi March 13, 2015


    • FutureCIARA March 13, 2015

      • BeyRihLiyah March 13, 2015

  12. BeyRihLiyah March 13, 2015

    • Iconic Cici March 13, 2015

      Like the way yall hype Aaliyah up after she died?

      • TheElusiveLamb March 13, 2015

        But Aaliyah didn’t flop after death.

      • BeyRihLiyah March 13, 2015

        or how Ciara still hasn’t surpassed Aaliyah when she has had a longer career than her ?

    • Keri Qween March 13, 2015

      • BeyRihLiyah March 13, 2015

  14. Iconic Cici March 13, 2015

    Lmao Tinashe will never be on Ciaras level so lets just stop now her debut album hasn’t even sold 40k.

    Congrats Ciara on all the success that you deserve. No one can take this away from you.

  15. TheElusiveLamb March 13, 2015

    After finding a label sister in ‘Prisoner of Love’ performer Mariah Carey…

    You better stan for The Elusive Chanteuse! Congrats to both though.

  16. Slaylor Swift March 13, 2015

    Go Slaylor, lowkey slaying. I Bet will likely debut in the top 40. Well done to Rih as well.

  17. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 13, 2015

    David, the song is called “Prisoner” not Prisoner of Love. Anyway, congrats to Ciara. Iggy’s still trash.

  18. CherylSoldierr March 13, 2015

  19. Skyfall March 13, 2015

      Definitely is one of her best. It’s my fifth favorite album of hers overall, but my favorite vocally.

  20. Skyfall March 13, 2015

    Tinashe slays Ciara, Musically and Vocally. So let’s not even try to come for her.

    • Jamie March 13, 2015

      • FutureCIARA March 13, 2015

      • Brian310 March 14, 2015

        Nobody is pressed by an artist that can’t even compete with the top dogs in her own genre let alone an R&B icon…has her ww figures matched Aliyah US numbers yet?

      • Brian310 March 14, 2015


      • Brian310 March 14, 2015

        But Ciara list of men extends past Aaliyahs so if she was a that then Ciara is the slit of the century

      • Brian310 March 14, 2015

        But Ciara list of men extends past Aaliyahs so if she was a that then Ciara is the s*** of the century

      • Brian310 March 14, 2015


    • BeyRihLiyah March 13, 2015

      you should take those same candles and try to burn down Ciara’s label because they don’t care about that b****** they don’t even make any attempts to make her semi-relevant

  23. Jamie March 13, 2015

    Yay Ciara!! The song is amazing + the video is one of her best.

  24. FutureCIARA March 13, 2015

  33. Dion F. March 15, 2015

    How is she struggling for relevance when she’s sold over 12 million singles in only a year? Anyway the Ciara song is fire, and I hope Iggy would drop one of her Hip Hop songs
