Ciara’s ‘I Bet’ Certified Platinum

Published: Tuesday 15th Dec 2015 by Sam

R&B siren Ciara has been gifted an early Christmas present.

‘I Bet,’ the lead single from the performer’s sixth album ‘Jackie,’ has just been awarded the tallest of honors.

Details below…

During a press interview today, the 30-year-old was formally informed that the Harmony Samuels production has reached Platinum status.

Peep the cool moment below….

Congrats to Ci and involved with the track as well as its accompanying video (which now has 80 million + views on VEVO.

The latter is particularly noteworthy because, as widely reported, certification now factors in streaming (on top of sales).

Now, before shade brigade launch a grenade, it’s worth pointing out that that the lionshare of ‘I Bet’s qualification was earned by way of sales. Equivalent units (see: 1000 on-demand streams = 1 “sale”) are the cherry on top here.

Whatever the case, we tip our hats to Ms. Harris.

Here’s to continued successes!

    Biggest r&b record of the year!!!

    • gorgan December 15, 2015

      too bad the grammys or any critic charts agree :/

    • Boss December 15, 2015

      True, and that’s why she’s been getting award nominations through out the year. Slay girl!

  8. Ally December 15, 2015

    One of my most played tracks of this year from my most played albums. Love the production on Jackie. Congrats to Ms. Harris!

  9. King Mark111 /.\ December 15, 2015

    Congrats! She can still be a R&B force IF she balance out the pop, hip hop and R&B in her music. Heck at least sell singles.

    • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans December 15, 2015

      I agree, but who the hell are we kidding? She NEEDS to just PUSH the hell out of pop singles for a while until she’s back at the top and then she can ease back into the R&B singles once she gets stable again. This is, of course, still with a great deal of the album tracks being R&B.

  10. Vidiii December 15, 2015

    The Only R&B Song that is certificied!!!!! CIARA GO!!!

    Yes! OMG! Congrats, Princess! I’m so proud of her. It would’ve been great for her to perform it at the Grammy’s, but f*** them bothered ass h***! I just listened to “Hotline” and “C.R.U.S.H.” yesterday too and I got my life from them! Molly, look at what she did! You GOT to be proud of her, although you don’t Stan for her anymore.

    “I’m the incredible, super sexual…call me, ‘Cici’. Let’s go and I know that you see me.”

    Yes for the “Go Girl”! Let the haters hate! Ciara’s platinum again now. You mad? The basic Becky’s can stay hurt and pressed.

  27. #JACKIE December 15, 2015

    Say whatever you want but Ciara is one of the only relevant R&B girls who can still get airplay and certifications these days. The girls will remain pressed while Ciara and her BRAND continues to win. Xoxo?

  28. Queen December 15, 2015

    Congratulations Ciara. Now with this, maybe your label won’t drop you.

  29. 4everBrandy_Ci December 15, 2015

    Ciara remains undisputed!!!! She really is amazing and I love her!!! That’s my homegirl!!!! The haters can say whatever but when it comes to the artistry and talent Ciara delivers!!! Congratz my Queen!!!!!

  30. cocobutta December 15, 2015

    Great achievement so well done to CiCi.

  31. chanel December 15, 2015

    I’m so happy for her she’s really good I hope fly be a single or owa I hope she brings some more of her tom boyish like she used to csquad all the way for any body album these days are hard to sell we say that until we’re in their shoes I suppose cici hopefully she do more in 2016 she needs to book more awards shows other than bet

    • #JACKIE December 15, 2015

      I think Ci is more focused on her brand right now and the rest will fall in place. ?

  32. Quinton251 aka Lil Wayne Stan December 15, 2015

    Congrats Mr, so proud of you:)

  33. Queen Navy December 16, 2015

    In an era where a platinum single (after months of release) means virtually nothing. I imagine a bunch of songs that flopped eventually crawl to some kind of certification in this day and age.

    As much as some want to cheer the underdog, I can’t pretend to be impressed. Ciara’s music career is the equivalent of someone who has spent the better part of a decade in a coma, hasn’t naturally died, but in all likelihood will never wake up again.

    • Sarah December 16, 2015

      B!*tch shuttup & stay mad

      • Queen Navy December 16, 2015

        Well, no…I’m not going to shut up, so that command was a fail. And I have no reason to be mad at Ciara because she scored 75% on some redial single release. Holla back when she puts out a single that breaks the top 20, goes platinum in less than six months and actually sells the album its cut from. Until then I remain unimpressed. Not mad boo boo, unimpressed!

    • Sarah December 17, 2015

      A platinum single is a platinum single sweetheart. Whether it takes 2 weeks or 4 years. Ciara is not living for you…so I’m sure she could care less if you are impressed or not LOL..stay mad behind the computer

  34. MUSICHEAD December 16, 2015

    So happy for Ciara! If she had a better ear for what good music should be and made better albums, she would still be on top. Congrats Cici!

  35. MusicHead December 16, 2015

    But umm… Streams are counted for certifications….

    • MusicHead December 16, 2015


  36. DaVonciah December 16, 2015

    It’s about time she has gotten back in her lane. People always discredits her work. Solid videos good music and great vibes during interviews. She is winning right now as a fan I would like to here more music tho I’m kinda of tired of knowing about those twos sexless relationship lol. ?GO Ci
