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:
