Ouch! Ciara Album Is #43; Album Flops With Only 37,900 Units Sold

Ciara already knew this album wasn’t going to do so well because she defended her low numbers before the charts were even tallied:

Selling records are becoming smaller fraction of branding and building a long-lasting career. You can sell a lot of records, but can you tour. You can sell records, but where does it go beyond that? That’s a part of building a brand for yourself. {Source}

However, I don’t think the record label anticipated the numbers would be this low.  Debuting at #43 and selling approximately 37,900 albums, Basic Instinct is technically a flop. I like Ciara, she’s not the strongest vocalist, but she puts a lot into her performances, and that I can appreciate. I hope she become the comeback kid of 2011.

Guess whose album didn’t even make the top 50. Hint: Tardy for the Party was more successful. According to That Grape Juice, Kandi Burruss numbers did not make the cut. Not a good year for R&B women.
