      • I read somewhere that the japanese version will include the remix of "Level Up", another track that we already have....

          • Alright, I just listened to the entire album. It's not bad. I find it solid as far as what we can expect from Ciara. It reminds me of the self-titled album, which I liked a lot.
            My favorite tracks:
            -Level Up
            -Trust Myself (which could be a nice single)
            -Na Na
            -Freak Me

            I hope she sells at least 100K in the US.

            • I think it would be more successful if she called the album ‘Level Up’

              It would remind people of the song and that it is on there. It’s been so long since LU was released that people may have forgotten it or think it isn’t on this new album

                  • I'm curious to see if she manages a top 10 in the US but for now 30k SPS seem too much with those positions and no physical (iirc?)

                      I was thinking the same. Plus she won‘t have much SPS units I think.
                      I hope she does well, it doesn‘t seem like a busy week.

                        According to Amazon it will be released on CD on 15 May.
                        WTF? Next Wednesday? Two days only for first week sales?
                        What kind of strategy is that?

                              I agree! "Level Up" is still getting some views.

Just because I rant doesn't make me a hater. And I doubt your Ciara collection is better than mine (which you can see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3iw5clI-vs , it's old but still).
                                Wow! You even bought the Just Stand Up! CD which barely had her!

                                • HDD isn't predicting a top 20 debut for this. :( How will she be able to turn this around? I wonder if the album is considered a financial success on any level for an independent label.

                                    Are you referring to this website: http://hitsdailydouble.com/new_album_releases ?

                                    Are those numbers official ? The album is predicting to sell 25,500 copies in total ? 19,800 in pure sales ? Did I get it right ? Those numbers are the same as Jackie's first week sales.

                                    This album will be successful if it sells at least 100K in the very long run.

                                      Yes, that's the site I'm referring to. 25,500 is referring to the previous first week sales.

                                      The prediction for next week's chart doesn't list her at all:

                                      http://m.hitsdailydouble.com/news&id=316408

                                      So she must be selling less than 19-22k.

                                      But we'll see what happens. Maybe she can squeeze into the top 20 by the end of the week.

                                        The album has sold 10,000 the first week according to this website: http://sandrarose.com/2019/05/open-p...w-album-flops/

                                        But is it true ? I felt she would have sold more.....

                                        • So I think she missed the UK Top 100 albums chart... Beauty Marks debuts at #40 on the Top 100 Downloads chart, at least. Still, ouch! But not like she’s promoted this album in Europe at all.

                                              The album has sold 10,000 the first week according to this website: http://sandrarose.com/2019/05/open-p...w-album-flops/

                                              But is it true ? I felt she would have sold more.....
                                              I don't think that source is reliable at all. It's a random blog by some biased person. She writes "But thanks to her husband Russell Wilson's money, Ciara says she feels as giddy and excited as she did at the start of her career". It's so nasty that she implies that Ciara married for money. In fact I'm sure Ciara was well off herself already.

                                              It's also highly unusual that sales data from the US come out so early. I don't think we will have sales data before next week.

                                              When that is said I don't expect much higher sales figures considering the sales of Jackie. Only "Thinkin" has been sent to radio with very limited success, and the buzz for "Level Up" is far gone. It's really frustrating that "Level Up" and "Greatest Love" didn't get a radio release. Even moderate radio support would have helped.

                                              I hope that Ciara launches the singles from her next album better, when she no longer has to fight a major label, as it has been the case ever since Fantasy Ride. Only the self titled album got a rather strong push. "I'm Out" just happened to be a party killer single choice.

                                                Well, it’s not Top 50 according to HDD, and their #50 sold 11.3k.
                                                So 10k could be right unless HDD is really off with her figures this week.

                                                I wasn’t expecting a huge hit, but with a normal release with the physical CD, it probably could have been Top 20. The release has been a mess.

                                                    IS this what the album has accumulated since the release of Level up?.. because I'm pretty sure this won't be the 1st week sales that will be reported On monday/Tuesday right?
