Published: Friday 22nd May 2015 by Sam

Ciara continues to carve out her success narrative on her terms.

For, in the face of naysayers, the R&B star continues to prove her worth.

Details below…

The singer, whose new album ‘Jackie’ hit stores earlier this month, confirmed that the set’s lead single ‘I Bet’ has officially been certified Gold by the RIAA.

Per the awarding body, the Gold honor is bestowed upon songs that have sold 500,000 copies in the US. Streaming is now factored into certifications, with 100 streams (on services such as Spotify) equating to sold unit.

Congrats CiCi!

We’re ready for that next single now.

        And yo fav is the DRUNK whoore! ???? u mad??

      • Lana Del Fan *I Can Hear The Sirens* May 22, 2015

        But my fave can sell a million albums as an, basically, underground/hippie artist. I’m far from bothered.

  3. Centurion May 22, 2015

    Her album fell 47 spots down the charts. Her album is out of the top 50 of the Billboard Top 200 albums in its second weeks. Where’s the post about that?

    • Mr. CEE May 22, 2015

      Where the H**L is the post about Rihanna’s yet to be seen album? Drag Ci all y’all want, but #WhereIsRL8?

  4. Centurion May 22, 2015

    Who celebrates a single going gold? I am screaming!!!! 😆

    • SURPRISE…….(DEC.13) May 22, 2015

      WHEN IS RIHLATE DROPING THO??? #NEVERUARY

      • Centurion May 22, 2015

        R8 will be out before you and Beyonce get a diploma.

      • SURPRISE…….(DEC.13) May 22, 2015

        I guess I’m not getting that diploma, cause RIHLATE is never coming out…LOL Maybe if RIHJUNK stopped snorting cocaine and stopped stuffing her vocal chords with DICKKS, she would have the vocal prowess to complete her album.

    • Nap time May 22, 2015

      Who celebrates a song going gold? A successful performer that’s living their dream, that’s who. What accomplishments do you have besides surviving your mothers failed attempt to abort you? None, that’s why you’re here, exposing your jealousy. Is your life truly that meaningless? This is your purpose in life? Send my condolences to your family

    • Free Mind May 22, 2015

      Someone that only sell 20,000 copies for their debut week.I wish these people that make Ciara out to be this tremendous “star” would buy the bish cd.

      • Cupid May 22, 2015

        What are you selling h**? Yall quick to come for CI but yet she’s one of the biggest African Erican artist out their. Her sales says a lot about our PEOPLE not just her! Let’s be very clear and honest. BLACK PEOPLE DONT BUY MUSIC THEREFORE BLACK ARTIST SUFFER!

    • Rihyeezy May 22, 2015

      Ugly ass F*****

  5. #JACKIE May 22, 2015

    ^^Look at the haters seething!!! KEEP SLAYING THEM QUEEN!!!!

    • SURPRISE…….(DEC.13) May 22, 2015

      That RIHJECTION fan is seething for the Gods!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Barb-wire May 22, 2015

      The nerve of you to say anyone’s seething
      when you’re always doing the most in other
      artist’s post.

      anyway congrats to C.

      • #JACKIE May 22, 2015

        Why are you addressing me? Did I send for you f**? I don’t think I did so return to your rat burrow and purchase Feeling Myself.

  6. King B May 22, 2015

    Jesus sometimes I look at my fave and I’m like thank God I’m staning for this bytch! Beyonce did 613k in 3 m********* dayz and the only thing you hear her say was thank you for the support on a Q&A. This Bych went from 16k to 4k on her second week and is not ashamed to do something as tacky as celebrating a gold certification of a flop single on the gram that like reality TV material. what next booking info on her bio???

    • SURPRISE…….(DEC.13) May 22, 2015

      LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! B**** YOU MADE ME WEAK.

    • Centurion May 22, 2015

      Who’s King B?

      • SURPRISE…….(DEC.13) May 22, 2015

        You should know who that is!!!!! Ur flop fave contributes to her daughter’s college fund. #NOSHADE

    • #JACKIE May 22, 2015

      No one gives a f*** about what your overrated thieving fav did sis.

    • Tasha May 22, 2015

      The fact that Ciara only released ONE single and video for her album and still has people buying her album says a lot. Especially in a digital age where people don’t like to buy urban music. Ciara sold MORE than Mariah Carey’s (16k) and Trey Songz(11k) new albums btw. And Ci and Bey are in two different lanes. Bey is already an icon, while Ci is working her way to that title. The fact that people always try and compare them shows that they see Ciara’s potential and are threatened… But why? Why yall so mad? Bey and Ci are cool and have BOTH complemented each other, and they even have mutual friends. I get that yall need entertainment and a distraction from your boring lives which is probably why you all will ignore this comment and continue to hate until Ci wins you over, but still this is so sad and childish.

    • Mr. CEE May 22, 2015

      King B, I LIVE for the day Beyonce FLOPS. The FLOP is coming…we all see it’s found Rihanna. KML!!!!

  7. Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! May 22, 2015

    Taylor Swift’s all-star “Bad Blood” video broke Vevo’s 24-hour viewing record, with 20.1 million views in its first day of release.

    Swift passes the previous record holder, Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda,” which had held the honor since August 2014 when the bootylicioius vid debuted with 19.6 million views in the first 24 hours since release.

    A press announcement from Vevo notes that Swift has brought in nearly five billion total views among all of her videos.

    • SURPRISE…….(DEC.13) May 22, 2015

      WHO CARES THO!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! May 22, 2015

        I do! It’s a good record to have, shows how relevant my fav is!

      • SURPRISE…….(DEC.13) May 22, 2015

        Yeah, she debuted it on a major award show, and yet she only passed ANACONDA by a tiny bit….lol

      • Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! May 22, 2015

        Yeah, which makes it more special, that even though people saw the video on the award show, obviously nome of the views counted and yet it still got to be the most viewed video despite that!

      • Mark111 May 22, 2015

        Oop, someone’s jealous.

    • Barb-wire May 22, 2015

      Slay Taylor!!! even though Anaconda will always be iconic.

    • pat May 22, 2015

      Good for her. The video slays!

    • Mark111 May 22, 2015

      Get it Slayor Swift! For a video that were already shown on an award show and people still went to vevo and watched it again?! The previous records were Anaconda and Wrecking Ball, and Tay didn’t have to flash her @ss to get attention, that’s why it’s epic.

    • Essa May 22, 2015

      Taylor Swift is a damn dork and so are her fans. Any dude actually into her music is…”sweet”…i.e., NOT STRAIGHT. Telling on yourself there, partnah.

      • LU May 22, 2015

        u should re-read that and be ashamed of yourself. i dont like taylor swift but saying that men who listen to her are gay is extremely self loathing

  8. Barb-wire May 22, 2015

    Yes CiCi, when will Big bird?

    • Keri Qween May 22, 2015

      Keri had a platinum hit last era that was from sales not streaming like cedric

      Worry about plastic minaj going platinum

  9. Barb-wire May 22, 2015

    The nerve of you to say anyone’s seething when you’re always doing the most in other artist’s post.

    anyway congrats to C.

  10. Centurion May 22, 2015

    I miss the ghetto Ciara. Maybe if she stopped wearing women’s clothing and make up since it’s not who she is, people from Atlanta for starters, will start buying her music and maybe the world will follow route.

    • SURPRISE…….(DEC.13) May 22, 2015

      I was going to say i miss RIHJECT’S vocals, but then i remembered, she sounds like an HUNGRY HYENA!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • #JACKIE May 22, 2015

      Ciara is a grown ass woman, not the 18 year old singing about goodies in bathing suits and knee boots. Worry about Rihogre and her ignored FLOP era. Still no release date in sight.

      • Centurion May 22, 2015

        Go buy 19kara’s 20kie and make sure you do it every week.

  11. Really May 22, 2015

    No matter what she accomplishes people will always find another way to hate. Had it not went gold they would make fun of it not going gold smh. I’m a fan and I count on the haters to keep me informed on what she’s doing. Some of Yall keep up with what she does more than her actual fans

  12. kingbeybitch May 22, 2015

    Y’all know Halo (2009) is higher than American Oxygen on iTunes WW,US,UK,BRAZIL etc ..

    I thought the the hive were stupid (they’re still pretty much clinically retarded), but the C-men are on they’re way.

    Cici’s album which cost millions of dollars to produce and millions of dollars to promote, market, and distribute flopped and they wanna celebrate this? Come on. Have a little respect for yourselves.
    |
    It’s worse than Beybola’s Cadillac records which only made $12 million at the box office, plus none of Beybola’s films have grossed more than $300 million worldwide. #SomeQueen https://itsxpop.files.wordpress.com/2015/01/tumblr_mskurjvfea1rk96voo1_500.gif?w=584

      • Centurion May 22, 2015

        It grossed over $300 million boo. It made back it’s $200 million budget boo. Which one of your fave’s movies has grossed over $300 million? Which film has your fave been in with such an enormously high budget? When will Beysus? 😆

      • kingbeybitch May 22, 2015

        Ughh Every single movie Beyonce has been in made back its budget so sittt. Battleship was a huge ass flop. Now why is Halo charting higher than American Oxygen?

      • Centurion May 22, 2015

        I just checked. Halo is not on any iTunes chart. Why are you lying? I know you’ve been paid been in dust since 2011, but that’s so sad.

    • kingbeybitch May 22, 2015

      Its even charting higher on the iTunes pop chart lmaooooooo

    • Tasha May 22, 2015

      Boo…She only released ONE single and ONE video to promote the album…And the fact that it went Gold says a lot. She has 3-4 more singles to put out, award show performances on the way, a tv show, and guest appearances to promote the album…She’ll be fine. Plus she’ll make most of the money back and more with her tour. Why you so mad? Mariah Careys new album sold 16k while Trey Songz new album sold 11k yet all yall care about is CiCi. I swear yall want her to win on the low cause no one goes this hard, spends this much time and energy and does that much research UNLESS THEYRE A FAN!

  15. UPGRADEBOY May 22, 2015

    Kingbeybitch, I know that you’ve been paid been in dust since 2011, back when posts generated 100s of comments in minutes and you would just make up something random so that someone could reply to you, but that has changed. Oh and let’s not forget you saying Beybola has been on the cover of over 300 magazines. LMFAO!!!! No wonder you’re so irrelevant.

    • kingbeybitch May 22, 2015

      Beyonce has over 300+ magazine covers Google is your friend

  22. kingbeybitch May 22, 2015

    “Halo” by Beyoncé is currently the oldest song in the top 200 of US iTunes. It was released in 2009. ☕☕☕☕

  23. kingbeybitch May 22, 2015

    American Oxygen (2015) charting in 27 countries, Halo 2009 charting in 24 countries.lmaoooo b**** howw

  24. True Lamb May 22, 2015

        It’s not a receipt if it’s just word of mouth. Links or it’s a lie.

  30. Centurion May 22, 2015

    Literally in tears. Does this retarded p*** know how to post a link? ???? ???? ???? ????

  31. King Rih!! 230 MILLION RECORDS SOLD!! May 22, 2015

    Anyways where is the Post that RIAA has Dubbed King Rih as the second biggest selling female artist of all time? Oan 230 million records and without a F****** girl group

    • SMH May 22, 2015

      There is no post because it’s not true. I like Rihanna, but come on now. Let’s leave the inflated sales to the beehive.

  32. kingbeybitch May 22, 2015

    Anyways congratz Cici slayy gurl

  33. kingbeybitch May 22, 2015

    @Centurion Kworb.net check the updates on iTunes. Lmao like literally majority of Navy members on twitter/instagram know this that’s how they check her iTunes updates. How comes you don’t know this? Yet you always want to brag hmmmm

  34. Centurion May 22, 2015

    And still no link has been provided.

    Anyway, apologies to everyone especially the C-men and on behalf of my retarded ‘friend’ over there for making this a Rih vs. Beysic Beýtch post. Sorry. Until next time beytchez!!! ????

  35. LC May 22, 2015

    There’s nothing wrong with celebrating an accomplishment, no matter how big or small it may be. She may not have #1 singles like Rihanna or #1 albums like Bey, but I don’t think she should sit around and pout about it.

  36. SMH May 22, 2015

    I still don’t get why everyone hates Ciara so much lol. What did she do?

    • LC May 22, 2015

      @SMH: Well the navy hates her because she has/had beef with Rihanna. As for everyone else, idk.

  37. datreddone23 May 22, 2015

    FFS is the highest selling non-soundtrack song of the year 7th overall!

  38. datreddone23 May 22, 2015

    According to Fortune.com Rihannas magazine sales have been higher then any other females in the last two years no wonder why every mag wants her on there cover

  39. Mark111 May 22, 2015

    Push those singles Ciara! The album is good. Stuck On You, One and Only, DLWML, BMF all can be singles imo.

  40. obsidian May 22, 2015

    Can we just get back to the days where consumers were just fans of music? All of these stan wars are getting tired, through, and delayed! All u KWEENS need to get a life because regardless of how many albums she sell this time around, her status at the bank, and all 3 credit bureaus, is still better than yours!!!!

  41. LoveBey May 22, 2015

    Good for her! Now promote that album more than your relationship and we could be onto something

  42. Molly May 22, 2015

    Congratulations Cici, they always try and count you out but you always come thru. An rnb sinle going gold is amazing.

  43. Molly May 22, 2015

    Why are certain navy members mad that the sqaud is happy for Ciara getting a gold certification? She deserves it regardless im very proud of I bets success. Atleast the hive is supportive the navy’s hate for Ciara is so tired.

  44. Ellen May 22, 2015

    I just want a post about Taylor’s vevo record

  45. Lake Erie May 22, 2015

    THAT’S MY BAAAAAABY, she be puuutting it DOWN! (I can’t lie, I’m super turnt up, super turnt up, super turnt up!) 😉

  46. african music lover May 22, 2015

    I love this halo vs american oxygen receipts…..let the dragging begin. congrats Cici,i love that song and i cant wait for the next music video

  47. Theman May 22, 2015

    Lol don’t try to throw Mariah & Trey Songz into this. Trey’s album is s rerelease. And Mariah’s is a damn compilation. Those are not new albums. Stop grasping. Both of Mariah’s “Greatest Hits” are multi platinum. Everyone has these songs you moron. Ciara has a brand new album, with new material. Sit down with all of that.

  48. Rosie May 22, 2015

    Since some are talking about Taylor, the Bad Blood video was too short. All of the D-list Instagram celebs were only in it for like 3 seconds and it was basically her showing Katy “haha I win, I have more friends lol” or w/e”.
    The actual remix SLAYS though and is so much better than both the corny original and Katy’s 69 cent rent-a-remixes from Teenage Dream.
    Anyways congrats to Ciara, at least the single is doing well from an album that only sold 20K to date.

  49. Jerome May 22, 2015

    Have class, be gracious and say… Congratulations.

  50. BANKS May 22, 2015

    Congrats Cici!!! You damn haters must be mad as hell right now! Clearly she’s still a viable artist because really, what r&b songs are going gold these days! Especially a ballad! Keep hating and Ciara will keep WINNING!

  51. Rihicon May 22, 2015

    congrats sis

  52. stop May 22, 2015

    Damn shame. She can sell 500,000 for one single but can’t sell over 30,000 for her album? That shows that her fans are fake and don’t really like her music except for one song. smfh

  53. stop May 22, 2015

    winning what!?

  54. Sandra May 23, 2015

    I Bet has NOT sold over 500,000 copies. This Gold certification includes streaming. I Bet has only sold 200,000 in pure sales. And her album is flopping big time. It only sold 3,000 copies outside of the US during its first week. First week sales in US was 19,900 and worldwide was 23,000. Only 3,100 copies globally. She should just move on to the next album, this album is already doomed, sadly 🙁

  55. You wanna love it right bettor like you do then my funky money May 23, 2015

    Congrats to her

  56. Antonio May 25, 2015

    Yet again, her team fails to properly push her music. To my knowledge, I Bet has moved around 300k in sales and another 200k in stream equivalent sales, which is actually very good considering I Bet had a weak promo campaign and is a R&B song in 2015 which is a genre that has basically died. Feats like this should show these labels that with the right push and proper release, that R&B can rise again. Remember when country music was basically dead during the early and mid 2000s then artists like Taylor, Carrie and Daughtry were pushed into mainstream audiences and made it hot again. That needs to happen with R&B, especially black R&B artists. Nothing against artists like Justin Timberlake, Adele, Sam Smith, Miley Cyrus and Meghan Trainor, but they all make R&B music and its called Pop because they’re white so the general public sees black R&B as a total opposite
