After a few mishaps Ciara is gearing up to finally release her fourth album ‘Basic Instinct’ on December 14th. (Just an interesting note, isn’t it odd that both Ciara and Diddy-Dirty Money are releasing their insanely delayed albums on the same day?)
‘Ride’ was released as the first single back in April. The song hit big on the R&B chart peaking at number 3, but the album was pushed back from its August release date to ensure stronger sales.
Months later and Ciara has failed to gain another hit from the record. ‘Speechless’ failed to catch on and ‘Gimmer Dat’ has yet to hit the top 40 on the R&B charts, let alone the Billboard Hot 100. Things are looking shaky to say the least
Ali’s Blog posted a album sampler that I wanted to share with you all because the album actually sounds like a winner. It’s a shame because Ciara’s team seems to be lacking with promotion even though they have a strong album on their hands. Just as originally reported, the album seems to go back to Ciara’s roots.
There also seems to be a mix of the pop sound that as found on Ciara’s last album as well. I doubt that the first week sales will impress anyone, but hopefully the album is a slow burner. Thanks to Jon Ali for uploading this sampler on soundcloud and sharing it his blog!
