Ciara Announces ‘Basic Instinct’ Release Date

Ciara

After remaining mum, Ciara has finally given her fans what they’ve been waiting for—an official album release date!

The R&B singer’s fourth effort Basic Instinct, originally scheduled for a summer release, will hit stores just in time for the holidays on December 14. She confirmed the date, which was previously listed on Amazon.com, in a Ustream session on Tuesday night. The project boasts the singles “Ride,” Speechless,” and “Gimmie Dat,” for which she delivered a video this week.

“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,” she previously told Rap-Up.com of Instinct, which marks a return to her roots. Tricky Stewart and The-Dream are executive producers.

Ciara will face competition from Young Jeezy’s TM 103 and Diddy-Dirty Money’s oft-delayed Last Train to Paris, which pull into stores the same day.

    okay, i can’t take this, call me a hater or whatever but it is so clear that she pushed her album back further so she has better chances of selling well…cuz if she came out in november she didnt stand a chance…i like her music and all but i mean she needs to be more honest with her fans about certain things

    It was a label thing. I’m sure they have high intentions for that date. So what, of it’s for sells. I mean….all her fans will get the album no matter what. And with good promo, she will be able to do well. I’m very sure Ciara wanted an earlier release, but it was the LABEL’S Decision to put it out this date.

    I’m content with this date. A lot is riding on her though this time because if the label pushes it back again the project will officially be labeled a “disaster” IMO. But regardless, it’s better late than never and I know this album will be FIRE. She now has two full months to do promo so lets get this s*** started…

    Not again. SMT. I cant bet my life this date will change again. Gimmie Dat will take create enough hype for the album by dec 14th. Actually by mid november the single will be non-exsistant and people will then again no be aware that she has an album coming out, forcing her label to extend the date and release another single.

    No hate, just calling it as it is. I feel bad for her

    You know ppl call her a flop and she’s not. Its her lable, “Goodies” and “Evolution” was with one label(LaFace) and “Fantasy Ride” and Basic Instinct” are on another(Jive). If she stayed with LaFace, I guarantee she would be bigger than all these bitches in da game. So its not her, if you wanna blame someone, blame Jive.

    CiCi just in time for Christmas ;D So glad BASIC INSTINCT won’t delayed to 2011

    [Reply]

  17. Its True

    @Jealous Much Laface joined Jive in a distrbution deal to form the Zomba Label Group so Ciara never changed labels and thats no excuse for saying Ciara would be bigger cause there still giving her the budgets of a big selling artist. Now that Basic Instinct is pushed to December i dont see the album doing good unless her label decides to release another single and video before the album drops which i think whats gonna happen. A very desperate attempt for better first week record sales for an artist thats on her 4th album is pathetic. I understand artists that are on there first album and need the promotion but Ciaras on her Fourth with a 3 month push back from August is pathetic. Im sorry but its the truth.

  18. Give it up

    Notice how this is the same exact formula Ciaras label used for “Fantasy Ride”. 3 singles and videos out before the album (Counting that flop “GO Girl”, Never Ever, Love, Sex, Magic) Now 3 singles and videos out before Basic Instinct ( Ride, Speechless, Gimmie Dat) but the thing is that now the album doesnt come out till December so does this mean Jive is gonna release another single and video before the album? oh and @ Its True, Correction: The album isnt pushed back 3 months, its pushed back 4 months: August, September, November, December = Really Pathetic

    Jive is wasting there money on this disaster honestly. From August to December is just unbelievable and desperate.

    IDK i think she will do pretty good… I for one am looking forward to the CD. I never buy CD but i think with her RIDE video and the new GIMME DAT video, i will give her a shot. I mean she has good music. IDK what is missing tho. Maybe she doesnt have enough IT JUICE to be big like Beyonce and dem… But i think this should be her best seller to date… But it won’t compete with Ri Ri’s Loud Album.

  22. Basic Instinct 12/14/10

    if yall aint buying the album then why comment?? She is a sweet girl! You should be supporting her not *TRYING* to bring her down. She does a lot more than worry about making money than these other artists. It has never been about money with Ciara- its PASSION. If anyones about the money than it would be Jive…but who knows??….

    As big of a Ciara fan as I am, I agree with some of these comments. I mean, can’t her label get past the fact that she won’t outsell “Goodies”? In 6 years the industry has changed dramatically and sales just aren’t what they used to be anymore so why is her label doing this to her? They want her to do outstanding #’s but I don’t think that will happen. Just release the damn albums and make the Ciara fans happy. There is no reason to keep releasing singles until one hits the top 10. 3 singles from this album before it drops is enough. I just hope they stick to December 14th.

    OOOOH r u mad???? from what i read i can see cici has got a lotta fans. the only pathetic people in here r U. not her label, nor ciara n her team.december is the perfect date to let speechless n gimmie dat grow. @meme dumbazz i kno u cant wait cuz ur her number1 fan but please dont state non sense things 1ce again. gimmie dat will b inexistant by mid nov? i can see u really know nufin abt music. november is the growth period of her singles and the death is early december in US. im a lil bit mad cuz i already pre ordered the album and i will start my new job in toronto on december. ill have to giv’em my new adress n etc but i am patient. cici been workin hard for months, been promotin n been like everywhere 4 months. n i know she be releasin the mixtape b4. PLEASE PEOPLE dont even compare BI to FR. before the FR release we had no news from cici for months. it was like cici was rare. all the songs were leaked n all. but it aint the case with BI cuz this time it’s like every 2 weeks u hear somethin from CI. i know u love CI n just the way kids do when they cant wait they start cryin but calm down it will b OK, meanwhile ull hear some new shits from ci, u know some more live performance of gimmie dat, some live performance of speechless then it will b all forgotten. cici is used to dat, when gimmie dat dropped the same pple were like it sounds like boom boom pow so she betta give this title back to chris brown smh. when she released ride n the video it was the same routine as well, so calm down n dont get excited too fast. its not like it is a bad news. cici fans stand up n let all those kids know they got nufin to do here, they should learn their lessons instead of spendin time here

    i agree wit BASIC INSTINCT. if it were about money she would have released her album in 3 weeks like someone i dont wanna tell the name. it’s easy : she wouldnt co write all her songs then it would b done. if i were an artist i would prefer people to buy the music i wrote. i dont care if i sell 100K copies as long as they listen 2 somethin i worked hard on. it’s only my opinion

  31. Kyarra

    the reason i didnt buy fantasy ride was because it was too poppish but one thing’s sure, im gettin my BI copy. say whatever u want cici already sold me the album, to me its like a must have. the sound is so good n heavy. i love that bass. gimmie dat, shut em up, get it girl, ride, speechless, run it. c’mon it’s so on point. n everything’s so simple. i dont know abt the other songs but i love what i heard so far.i agree it aint about money, it’s abt passion n quality. the fact that she cowrote all the album n coproduced most of the songs is a good idea. lmao its amazin how people care abt how many copies she may sell. lol will she share the profits with u??? u really got no life. she never shared 1 penny with u, so why do u care? i think some people commentin here aint even fans, some people might b in the music industry cuz u carin abt things fans dont really giv a shit: u carin abt the budget her label spent on her project, u carin abt how much money was spent on her vids, someone even said they spent over 2millions USD on the gimmie dat video…but how can u care abt such things. is it ur business? did they spend ur money?

    First off retards! She never gave a release date other than Aug 17. Those other ones were from other sources and people. So there was basically one push back. Why do people have to run their mouths so much. Just go buy the album when it comes out. U haters knw u want to. She’ll sell with or without you. I have faith in her. Shes very sweet, hardworking, and lets not forget talented! Love CC keep doing ya thang. The haters are lurkin, but dont let it stop u! #RealTalk!

  42. Basic Instincts FTW!!!

    I’ll start by saying this…:
    Ciara is by NO means a flop! Goodies sold 5Million. The Evolution sold 3Million. Fantasy Ride was an experimental album. Ciara’s image changed, but Ciara as a brand is still Hot! Judge people NOT by their short-comings, but by their strength to get up and continue with a head held high. At the end of the day, Ciara is STILL a creative, strong, beautiful, bad ass BITCH who canNOT be touched!!! She’s still gonna do shows and make MAD ass money. Who do you know does shows in South American fasion show, and rakes in 3million just to perform??? Doing tracks from FANTASY RIDE mind you. And what people fail to realize, is that Fantasy Ride was her best international album. Ok, the US wasn’t receptive, but when you have people in Japan singing “Work”, I personally say JOB…WELL…DONE! Haters fall back! Basic Instincts FTW!!!!
