Stream Queen: Ciara’s ‘Dance Like We’re Making Love’ Video Hits 3 Million Views In 3 Days / Becomes Her Fastest Watched VEVO Visual

Published: Sunday 19th Jul 2015 by Sam

Is Ciara onto a winner with new single ‘Dance Like We’re Making Love’? If the streams of its newly unleashed video are anything to go by, the answer could very well be “yes.”

Details below…

Directed by Dave Meyers (whose credits include Britney Spears, Pink, and Janet Jackson), the steamy visual for the ‘Jackie’ jam has amassed 3 million views in just over three days.

The impressive feat earns ‘Dance’ the honor of becoming the fastest watched CiCi video in the VEVO era. Additionally, it positions the Dr. Luke cut in a solid position to premiere on the Billboard Hot 100 on next week’s count.

*************

Congratulations are no doubt in order.

Context is everything. Let’s be frank; Ciara – from a charts perspective – plays in the R&B lane. As such, when viewing the numbers with this lens, it (should) quickly become apparent that most of her peers aren’t commanding attention at this rate nor are they being showered with the same flavor of praise heaped on Ms. Harris following the video’s debut.

We’re hopeful that an infallible strategy has been put in place to ensure the song at least facet of success – whether that be “winning” virally, on the Billboard R&B charts, the Hot 100. Or better yet all!

We’d love to see TV performances, a radio tour, and the like. Because, with the right push, ‘Dance’ could become a signature hit for Ciara.

For now, though, we’ll continue to marvel at the seismic slayage of the video.

      • R8LATE July 20, 2015

        CORRECTION* She did actually slay her “Ride” video. And this video is more than just a cute look. Its her best video to date.

    • Keri Qween July 19, 2015

    • DEBRA July 20, 2015

      Video is hot, her best video since 1.2.3 step

  2. @4everBrandy_Ci July 19, 2015

    Yesssss!!!!!! Ciara is slaying whether people want to admit it or not. This video and the song is a hit and many aspects because she’s bringing something new to her artistry. I hope she really performs this on an award show. She really needs the push and right marketing strategy to get this record to excel throughout the masses. Well done Ciara and I’m proud of you!!!!

  3. Newbie July 19, 2015

  6. Great gaspy July 19, 2015

    Flop T*****. When is someone going to tell her to get rid of that ugly lace front.

  7. Tranet Ghost whisper jackson July 19, 2015

    Y’all act like she broke the vevo record

  8. Centurion July 19, 2015

    …and this is why people drag Ciara on this blog. It’s either the reaching or y’all make some dismal achievement that wouldn’t even impress Ciara herself or get her excited. Sam, you do more harm than good. I didn’t even read the second part of the article. I just skimmed over it. You’re always full of sh*t anyway.

  9. Xtina = The voice of this generation July 19, 2015

    I’m loving this, I hope it peaks very high on the charts. Queen Queen.

    • DEL BEY July 19, 2015

      Loool

  11. Janet1814 July 19, 2015

    I can’t stop watching this video. It’s so goddamn hot!!

  12. Rated R July 19, 2015

    Her core R&B fans feel left in the dust again . They’re not feeling this Jackie era at all , they see her as more wanting that pop sound which is interesting since this song was suppose to satisfy them while being able to capture pop audiences but it’s more so working Pop radio. But hey , that’s her ultimate goal . I wish she was more versatile in being more of a balanced artist instead of one way Pop or one way R&B .

    • Mark111 July 19, 2015

      I don’t feel like sleeping at this time of the day. No thank you.

      • DEL BEY July 19, 2015

        You gonna promote my blog some more on the lords fine day?

      • Mark111 July 19, 2015

        I didn’t even name your flop blog. Mtater of fact, even IF I remembered the name of that stillborn of a blog, TGJ blacked the name. Stick to your night job of serving your @ss on the streets of the UK, Nieem the nieve wonder.

      • DEL BEY July 19, 2015

        lol don’t lie Mark, you could recite my full address to me if you wanted, you stay perched, say my name boo, say my name while your highest achievement is being Tgj head troll

    • Mark111 July 19, 2015

      For an album that sold less than 30k? Why?

  14. Xtina = The voice of this generation July 19, 2015

    Wow “Neva End” by Future ft Kelly Rowland is life, I’m sorry it just shuffled while I was listening to my music. Underrated Urban masterpiece! I should check his new album.

    • R8LATE July 20, 2015

      where’s the correlation ?

  15. Mark111 July 19, 2015

    They need to be pushing this to pop raido. If not then what’s the point?

    • Xtina = The voice of this generation July 19, 2015

      Exactly Mark111!! Why can’t she get a clear channel deal & Slay Itunes & airways.

  16. Weezy Tha G.O.A.T July 19, 2015

        to protect your sclerosed a$$!!

      • #why July 20, 2015

        She has new music out??? Who knew!

  19. Xtina = The voice of this generation July 19, 2015

    The Evolution was everything she was going into the right path until Basic Instinct. I think her 2 last albums captured that R&B & Pop appeal but I think she needs to understand her core audience which is urban & make Urban music that will appeal to pop radio. Ciara mistake was Basic Instinct it had bad management & it was not a solid body of art to capture more fans.

    • Lake Erie July 19, 2015

      I agree with you on the “Basic Instinct” project. I loved that album! Had her team managed her right that era, it would have sold waaay more.

    • ~The Arcade~ July 19, 2015

      I adore Ciara, but I agree with you… I mean even Future said the same thing on the breakfast club. I was disappointed to hear the Jackie album filled with mostly pop tunes. It definitely seems like she’s chasing after the wrong crowd.

      • Mr. CEE July 24, 2015

        She’s not chasing the wrong crowd. All the R&B ‘folks’ come for Ciara, talk about here and DON’T buy her music anyway. Cici, chase that pop boo. At least the pop crowd buys music.

  20. lol July 19, 2015

    Del Bey I want you to tear down my walls any day but that comment above just shows how delusional you are

    • DEL BEY July 19, 2015

      Lol, but Cici is slating atm

  21. Xtina = The voice of this generation July 19, 2015

    Adding to that, Ciara is currently the most relevant Urban/R&B girl excluding Beyoncé & Rihanna. She’s actually more of a relevant celebrity than a musician. The weird part is that she’s everywhere but its not reflecting in her album sales & that is the most confusing part because her music currently is very good.

  22. lol July 19, 2015

    And what’s this I hear about Future predicted so debut with sales above 100K and I’m still waiting for the elijah Blake stans to show face thought they said their fave sold 42K kii

  23. Kim Kardashian Stan July 19, 2015

    This better chart

    • lol July 19, 2015

      What about you? Are you top or bottom since you focused on other people’s Sexual preferences

      • Brandy Stan July 19, 2015

        Trying to find out if I can be your top or bottom, lol sorry boo, i’ll pass lol.

  25. Who gonna check me boo? July 19, 2015

    3 million views in 3 days? Groundbreaking *Miranda Presley’s voice
    All joke aside we need to stop praising mediocrity that video is a flop video for a flop song from a flop album coming from flop artist that has been flopping for 8 years bye

  26. Selenator *Good For You* July 19, 2015

    This is actually praise worthy because streams will help it debut on the charts. Now Ciara needs to book a late night show and push it onto radio.

  27. stop July 19, 2015

    What is it that her fans don’t get? Ciara is good for videos only. Her videos takes away from her non vocal voice. People just want to see her dance. It is the same thing every time when she drops an album. Album tanks and she has to work hard to make videos to keep people aware that she still exist.Every one talks abut the video for several weeks then……crickets.Why can’t she make a album and her fans just buy it no matter how bad it is? those 3 mil views of the video should have been 3 mil albums sold. Ciara has millions of followers on instagram and twitter but does lousy in sales but great in video views. smh

  28. Cough Cough July 19, 2015

    This video is a f***īng slay

  29. Shanika July 19, 2015

    Yall gas this non singing broad up so much with her fake flop ass

    • Cough Cough July 19, 2015

      Well majority of popular music female artists are non singers… I mean Beyoncé, Gaga, Ariana and that’s about it.

  30. african music lover July 19, 2015

    But you stan for Kerry sweety,you are in position to call anything flop! your fav cant even… nevermind! you are just a waste literally! you better pray your fav does something better this upcoming era or you will dragged into witness protection like your favs career!!you better hope your masters will be here to protect your sclerosed a$$!!

  31. Jhené Aiko Stan July 19, 2015

    The video was nicely done. She looked gorgeous

  32. #TeamTinashe Stan July 19, 2015

    While people are done on investing on her she will forever be getting a bad rep due to being poor at promotion as she was a no show at her own video premiere and also what Future said about her being attention hungry coming off as believable. Sad….

  33. Marc July 19, 2015

    It will probably be a HIT; NOT because of her lack of SINGING, BUT because of the VIDEO DIRECTOR DAVID MEYERS!!!! Can she sing a COMPLETE LINE of “MORE” than 4 WORDS??? I “DON’T” think she can BREATHE THAT LONG!

  34. BeyRihLiyah July 19, 2015

    Congrats she should have released only one,give me love,kiss and tell and one woman army! Her team is so dumb they never pick the popiest songs on her albums

    • Janet1814 July 19, 2015

      DLWML wasn’t my first choice for a single but after seeing the visual I’m on board. Even my friends who weren’t even Ciara fans are obsessed with the song/video so lets see if it equates to sales.

  35. RihAmerican (hives scared of R8) July 19, 2015

    A beyflop stan saying cici is slaying Rijan

  36. iDreamBandz July 19, 2015

    What you guys fail to realize is:

    Talent does not garner mainstream success anymore. It is more wicked than you can imagine. The reason Ciara won’t be on the level (success wise) as her peers is because she refuses to take the next step in ranking. The real adults in here know what I’m referring to. So this is definitely a huge accomplishment in her career. It shows her unstoppable reign in a controlled realm.

  37. RihAmerican (hives scared of R8) July 19, 2015

    A beyflop stan saying cici is slaying Rihanna kii the Rihanna obsession continues!! Trying to get Rihanna dragged has failed!

  38. Molly July 19, 2015

    Yaaas the support

  39. StrawberryMuffin24 July 19, 2015

    Well she’s booking more stages then Rihanna but she’s still flopping her ass off both of them!lol

  40. Molly July 19, 2015

    They haters are such a kiiii

  41. shakira stan July 19, 2015

    Shakira can out dance this man without even moving ,even the fat Beyonce has out danced ciara numerous times …for her sake I hope this song becomes a hit….it is kinda hard being a single parent.

  42. Lake Erie July 19, 2015

    I’m happy for her! Several people on here made good points on here about her core R&B audience. I guess I’d classify myself as part of that audience but the video has really made me like the song even more. Im not in love with her album but it’s solid for pop heads imo.

  43. diabetes unbothered July 19, 2015

    The video is decent b( like most her videos) but the song is GARBAGE. The beat is ok tho. 4 flops in a row and she still getting pushed? Her debuts solidified her as the more crunk and edgy version of janet and aliyah. She could have been were rihanna is by now if she didnt abandon her core following. Now shes performing for 2 k and calling it a Tour and have the audacity to talk about a 2 nd leg when jackie barely sold 30 k to date. #THESTRUGGLE

  44. diabetes unbothered July 19, 2015

    2,000 x 20 = 40 k. Lmao at the jackie “TOUR” her tour has a larger crowd than her album sales… LMAOOOOO #THE-EPIC-STRUGGLE

  45. Lake Erie July 19, 2015

    Smh people and their diabetes I tell ya. God don’t like ugly though.

  46. ~The Arcade~ July 19, 2015

    Congrats Cici… I’d like to think I contributed to that amount of views lol

  47. Mr. CEE July 19, 2015

    Cici was snatching wigs throughout this entire video and then at 3:41 mark, she snatched EVERY ONE of y’all faves wigs. EVERY ONE!

    • sorryfortheessay July 19, 2015

      Snatching wigs require at the minimum, a Platinum certified album in most territories the albums and singles were released. It also requires having at least a Top 10 in multiple markets,she has had none of the above. She comes out with one decent video since the evolution era and some of you are acting like she pulled more popular artist sells.Ciara didn’t slay a thing but this video,the song will be lucky to chart on the Hot100

  48. Molly July 19, 2015

    Almost at 4 million keep watching babies

  49. @JanetCIARA_ July 19, 2015

    THEY NEED TO PROMOTE THIS SONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    IT COULD GO Top 10!

  50. Rosie July 20, 2015

    It’s a very nice video and well directed.
    Also the unofficial upload of Honeymoon by Lana herself is at 3 million, which is great since Interscope took the VEVO version of YouTube after less than a day when it was already well over a million. Love how she doesn’t give any f****.

  51. R8LATE July 20, 2015

    THIS VIDEO IS OVAAAAA!

  52. Mr. Cee July 20, 2015

    I read this on YouTube as one of the comments and I died! LMAO

    “When she walked down that hallway she snatched every wig on her way. Rihanna was the necklace, Nicki was the bracelet, Beyonce was the dress, and Future was the ponytail twist tie. Slayed!!!”- DontRushPerfection

  53. another bey day something ain’t wrong July 22, 2015

    The music video is wonderful and nice song. Adio your Thing princess cici
