Ciara Announces Album Release Date

Ciara

Ciara fans, mark your calendars. The R&B diva has finally set a release date for her fourth album Basic Instinct.

Ciara took to Twitter to make the August 24 date official. “BASIC INSTINCT ALBUM RELEASE DATE!!!! AUGUST 24!!” she wrote.

The first single “Ride” is currently No. 56 on the Billboard Hot 100, while the remix with André 3000 was released to iTunes this week. A follow-up single is due before the album’s release. “Get ready to dance off the freaking roof,” she told Rap-Up TV of the unnamed track.

The album, executive produced by Tricky Stewart and The-Dream, marks a return to her roots. “Now it’s time to go back, it’s time to throw on my sneakers, it’s time to just really get bossy for a couple of seconds,” said CiCi.

    well, the only new release that i think’ll outsell her that week is katy perry, so it’s not a bad choice for a date. if ride could become a decent pop hit between now and then, i don’t think it’ll flop. she won’t do crazy numbers but it’ll be respectable.

    C’mon Baby! I’m saving up to get my 10 copies already!!

  8. AnTwaun

    Yesss! 3 copies here i come. the wait is finally coming to an end. I know the album get people back on her shit. I just feel it. I have high hopes in this album, but now us stans have to worry about getting her to the #1 spot, cause Katy is in the way. & Katy has a strong #1 single & Pop always SELLS! lets just hope Ci brings it with the 2nd single and it be something for both Pop & Urban, & then Ci has it all in the bag.

    [Reply]

  9. AnTwaun

    Yesss! we gotta get Ci to #1 with this one, or else the haters will still call her a flop. although the stats show she isnt cause F.R came in at #3 and thats not considered a flop but the haters still called her one. we gotta BLACKBAG this shit!

  10. wow groupies

    lol the haters…..again :-)
    Don’t you think you are ridiculous buying 3 or 10 copies? :-) lmao
    You’ll not prove Ciaras music quality with that..

  11. Dpg

    i swear its just one person or a few people from Ciara’s street team doing this posts….every time something to do with Ciara is posted on rapup.com, its flooded with comments saying pretty much the exact same thing (eg. read above)

    Not that its a bad thing, but come on guys ease up!

    CICI IM ROOTING FOR YOU!! BUT Katy perry and T.I. both are releasing their albums on that day!! those are huge names..i think she shuld perform on the VMA’s then have a release dat in september..(around the time of the VMA early SEPT) and let ride and the ride remix do more damage on the chart!!

    [Reply]

  14. AnTwaun

    @Jermany

    No! T.I’s album is set for Aug 17th. but u did make a good point. she should push it to sept but then again, Kanye is releasing in sept too. not unless she release the same week of the VMA’s. and perform Ride, along with the 2nd single.

    Although i am excited for the album (which i will go get and blast in the car volume 2 the max) im even more anxious the hear the second single

  18. MB92

    @AnTwaun i dont think Kayne would be anything to worry about at this point. I mean did you see that performance at the bet awards. it was horrible, the only thing good about it was the background

    [Reply]

  19. Numbers dont lie

    Her album has a big chance of flopping. I can tell this time around her label is tight on her budget. There gonna release one more single for this album and if it flops its a wrap. Her second single is gonna have to be “The One” big record or i can guarantee you that she wont sell more than 80,000 copies her first week out. Im sure of it. But anything is possible. We will see!

    [Reply]

  20. day1

    MMM…… No question ill be buying 2 copys one off itunes and a hard copy. Im so proud of Cici I think she will pull bigger numbers then last time. With the right 2nd single she will do great.

  24. flava

    @Antwaun…not being a hater cuz im not, but an album ranking doesnt decide if a album is a flop or not its the sales, and her first week sales were 81000 which sorry to say is considered a flop…but i dont think this album will do as bad as F.R.

    [Reply]

  25. L0VEKING.

    Yess! I AM GONNA BUY THIS ALBUM.

    & “Ride” is already Top 10 on the R&B Charts and a second single is coming soon!!!

    [Reply]

  27. Marvin

    We shouldn’t be worried if Katy Perry will outsell her or not, we should just be good fans/stans and buy as many copies as possible and hope that she gets another #1 album!

    I also can’t wait for the album! Getting at least 2 copies!

  47. HD

    Lol first time a hater made me laugh….people are getting back on her side now because ride is rising every week and the remix is doing great on iTunes. If Katy Perry is number 1 it’s fine because she’s cool.. So I’m getting 1 hard copy and one digital copy for my computer…. Mark your calendars people!

    [Reply]

  48. Desquared

    WTF care about Katy Perry. Diff audience. Ci ain’t competing w her. Ride is peaking every week and is top 10 on urban which is the target. Katy Perry had one big hit on her last album and barely went platnum so she ain’t no gaga. But she’s white so it’s whatever.

    [Reply]

  49. Nick

    Sorry, but this is going to flop so hard. LOL.

  50. Basic Bitchstinct

    @Jayride U said 300-350k yeaaa ighttt!!! Not happening. she will be lucky to even sell 100,000. Basic Flopstinct is coming out on the same day as Katy Perry and u kno damn well ciara aint gonna have the #1 album.

    Good luck with that second single ciara we all know its gonna flop. Bye Girl!!!

    @LOL at haters Funny u say that cause comments on a blog site dont sell records. People can comment on this post all day it wont make a difference. its all about the music and the hits on billboard that make a difference. So your comment is really irrelevant. Nice try though.

    I put money on it that Ciaras Basic Instinct album will sell “less” than Keri Hilsons next album. Who wanna put money on it???

  57. Who DAT Girl? CICI BE DAT

    Really all the hater’s can keep talking sh*t…cause us fan with handle that on the 24th of August or whenever it‘s out…and with all the negotiation about the ride video and Bet ”banning” it is only helping the single and the promo of this album…so you hater’s can get on down with that…

    I cant wait for this album CiCi. I am anxiously waiting. I only wish it was sooner. Maybe we can get a pushup?

    [Reply]

  61. Christian

    If she can pull off a banger second single, this album will do well! Think about ‘The Evolution’. Get Up wasn’t that good of a first single (except that it was in Step Up) and then she released Promise. That, to this day, was her highest single yet since the Goodies era. So if she can pull off something like that… expect this album to shit! :-D

    [Reply]

  62. LOL at haters

    @Basic Bitchstinct
    Like I said, You only raising the attention she’s getting by commenting. Its your fault that your even commenting on someone you think will flop so why do it? Your only making it easier for the rest of us :)

    The truth is Ciara IS NOT an all rounder. She can’t sing. We all know she can dance, therefore I dont need to by her album. She shld be a choreographer for people that realy have talent.

  68. jj

    Ciara & kelly Rowland are straight wack. they wld never sell out bug stadiums, they’re just not that big of a star with that much pulling power.

    [Reply]

  69. MEME

    ciara will sell 180-200 strong. she will not sell above 200 tho, I can bet my life on it. Shes just not that big of an artist to top 200. I do want her to succeed tho. I just prey “get it girl” aint the second single. I love that song but that will not push the album enought.

    [Reply]

    Katy Perry is nothing. Nobody cares about that “it” giril, she might push 100k (Katy Perry) if anything, but where’s her fanbase. She really doesn’t have one, she makes fun music. MEME, She did it before, i’m sure she can do it again. Don’t doubt see. & don’t limit her, the same people said that about Monica, & she nearly sold 3 times as much as they said she’d sell & the same about the said she’d sell in a week, in a DAY! I’m getting Basic instinct, Ciara will do well, because of her fans ! & look @ how her post always top Rap-Up, people care. & Rid eis already in top 10 of Billboard R&B/Hip Hop which Rap-up FORGOT to mention! Success comes in many different realms, don’t you all forget. Especially now today, hence: Monica’s “Everything to Me.”

    how do u know ciara n kelly wont sell out a ww tour when they havent done one duh! as for katy perry u never know. thought she sold 6 mil of her first album?. people just saying ciara will sell this amount of cds wait n see u might be dissapointed to find out u was wrong. ciara is a big artist how she have 2 platinum albums, bb woman of the year n she is internationally known. she dont have several number 1s like… but there is a star soon to be superstar there.by the way when u buy an album are u seeing her dance or u are listening to the music.
