Ciara low album sales leads singer to put her album on Groupon to boost sales? Ciara was very excited about her fifth solo album dropping. And with the buzz “Body Party” created for the singer and all the promoting she was doing prior to the album’s official release, the C Squad was sure their fave was on the verge of a comeback. However, “Ciara” only managed to sell over 50,000 copies in the album’s first week but did land in the number two spot on the Billboard 200 chart. Although Ciara’s latest album has performed extremely well in comparison to her last album “Basic Instinct,” it has slipped on the charts. Ciara said before she wasn’t worried about her album flopping but the singer is looking to do something about the low sales as she has linked up with Groupon to offer a 2-CD bundle deal to her fans in order to boost “Ciara” album sales, according to a report from Singersroom:

In an effort to boost sales, the Grammy winner has teamed with discount outlet Groupon to offer a 2-CD bundle package, which includes the ‘Ciara’ album and ‘The Very Best of Ciara’ playlist. ‘Ciara’ features collaborations with Nicki Minaj and Future and is lead by the singles “Body Party” and “I’m Out” while ‘The Very Best of Ciara’ includes 14 of Ciara’s hits (“Goodies,” “Promise,” “Like a Boy,” and more).


Once the Twitterverse got hold to the news of Ciara’s latest effort to boost album sales, it was over for the singer:

    So is her record label just trying to embarrass her or something? It’s like they really don’t want her to succeed. Smh.

      Honestly, I don’t even know if they deserve all the blame. All Ciara seems to care about these days is her relationship with Future. And the crazy thing is he’s straight! His career is going places. He’s popping! She’s barely hanging on and doesn’t seem to care.

    I really be trying to pull for Ciara I bought the album. She needs to focus less on Future and more about music. I’m convinced whoever ruined Ashanti singing career is ruining Ciara career.

      How’d you like the album? (Promise I’m not being funny, I just haven’t really heard anything about it)

        It was a solid album in my opinion.To me you can hear Future’s sound throughout the album. My favorite song is DUI.

    Whoa. Ciara, it may be time to hang it up boo. There’s other things you can do…music ain’t for you.

    Her record label has gotten desperate. Well if they would have focused more on coming up with music that would sell, then just maybe they wouldn’t have to resort to selling albums on Groupon. They ought to be ashamed of themselves. LA Reid, this is the best you can do?

    Terrible. Ciara needs to either get a new team or just model or something. This music thing hasn’t been working out.

      A new team won’t save her. How many has she had since the first flop album? I know you see where I’m going with this…

    Ciara stay losing. How unfortunate.

    What happened C Squad? LMAO!!!!!

    • And What?

      July 29, 2013 at 9:51 pm

      You have to ask the Rowland Stones the same thing. They are two groups of fans that will argue you down on blogs but won’t buy their fave’s album. Makes no sense.

    Well she can always join Future’s baby mama club. He’s always looking for new members.

    Her label has no clue of what to do with her anymore. They are probably going to drop her. Sad.

    This is terrible album marketing. How did the people who came up with this idea even get their jobs? Jay Z hooks up with Samsung and gets a platinum album out the box and this is the what they perceive as a great deal? Really? How?!

    Wow. I really feel bad for her. She has some great talent and can perform so well but the music she makes lacks that it factor.

    R&B is a dying breed…you have to go pop or be okay with not selling a lot of copies. The choice is Ciara’s at this point.

    lmao! I can easily tear this apart but i’ll let it go and let others make their NICE comments. Oh well she still got Future to hang on to………lol……bootleg
