SERIOUSLY: Ciara’s New Album Pops Up On GROUPON + Ashanti POSTPONES Album Release (In Case You Missed It)

Singer Ciara’s latest disc "Ciara" popped up a part of a GROUPON discount and it’s outraged her fans!  Find out about the "Ciara" discount inside and get the deets on Ashanti’s delayed album.

In case you haven’t scooped up your copy of Ciara’s latest album, it’s now available as part of a package deal on GROUPON, which will also get you a copy of her greatest hits. While getting two cds for the price of one seems like it would be a good thing for the consumer, fans and critics of Cici are dragging her on social media.  

You’ll recall that Ciara was on the receiving end of a lot of criticism after her Fantasy Ride disc was given away during a KFC promotion…..and now this!

When Ciara was first released, the "I’m Out" singer sold nearly 60,000 copies.  And the GROUPON deal should help the singer sell more albums and reach more people…so it’s that a good thing right?

Of course, this is not in the same vein as Jay Z’s $ 20 mill Samsung deal, and we indeed thought this was a joke when we saw it last night.  But, it’s real.  And the promotion does actually make sense.  For her. Don’t ya think?

 

In other music news…

Fans of Ashanti will have to wait a little longer to hear the NY chick’s Braveheart disc.  The singer revealed that she’s decided to delay releasing the album via Instagram saying, 


"Hey y’all! So Braveheart is NOT coming out today we have clearances & legalities to take of…It costs to be the boss!!! This CEO sh#t is Not A Game! Lol looking like September."

Braveheart is expected to feature Busta Rhymes, Meek Mill, French Montana, Keyshia Cole and R. Kelly.

VIDEO: Ciara’s “Body Party” VIDEO Starring Future

 photo ScreenShot2013-04-22at123435PM.png 

Ciara revealed the visual for hit her single "Body Party" today and her boyfriend Future stars as her leading man.  Watch the clip inside…

 

Ciara dropped the visual for her "Body Party" video today.  Produced by Mike WiLL Made It and written by Future, Cici’s boyfriend, the video tells the story of how they met.  While wearing a sleeveless t-shirt with the word "Ballin" on it, harem pants and black sunglasses, Ciara, backed by a group of dancers,  uses her sexy movements to start a "body party" and catch Future’s eye from across the room. 

Future throws CiCi a smooth line and predicts that they will become a couple….because he can see the "future".

While talking about the video, which pays homage to the Atlanta house party scene, she said, "It’s been so many years since I’ve done a video in Atlanta.  That alone was refreshing, but went beyond that. We captured the spirit of the song and the feeling of having a body party. It’s the perfect combination."

The video features cameos from Ludacris, Trinidad James, and Jazze Pha.

"Body Party" will appear on Ciara’s upcoming album Ciara (July 9th).

DO WE LOVE IT? : Ciara’s “Body Party” (Plus Her Bathroom A Cappella Version)

Ciara just released the full version of her newest single "Body Party."  Check out the sexy track inside, plus CiCi belting out the chorus a cappella in her bathroom in Paris….

Just a few days ago, CiCi dropped a snippet and her nude single cover for "Body Party."  The track appears on her upcoming EPIC records album One Woman Army.  And as a follow up to her "Sweat" single, the hot singer/dancer tapped her boyfriend, rapper Future, to help her co-write the song.

She gushed about him and why this song was a good description of their relationship telling Billboard:

"If you listen closely, you can [hear him]," she told The Juice while giggling."Let’s just say that this record came out of a very sincere place," Ciara says of working with Future. "I think when things just organically feel right, naturally good things come from it."

You can hear his adlibs in the background.  She gushed about her boo even more saying:

"He’ s such an amazing, creative person," she continues. "I can be very creatively expressive myself, but there’s nothing like being able to work with someone that can bring a new flavor. What I like about [working with] him, it’s almost like I got to learn more things about myself."

Mmmhmm we’re sure things get real organic if you’re making sexy tracks like this.  Mike Will Made It produced "Body Party", and One Woman Army will hit shelves in June.

By the way, before Ciara rolled to the Givenchy afterparty dinner in Paris last night, she went into the bathroom and belted out the chorus.  No background music:

So, about her new "Body Party" single…

DO WE LOVE IT: Ciara’s NEW Cornrows + Rita Ora’s “Radioactive” VIDEO

Photobucket

"Got Me Good" singer Ciara tweeted a photo of her new cornrows, a throwback to one of her past looks. See Ciara’s new style inside and watch Rita Ora’s video for "radioactive."

As she gears up for her upcoming performance on VH1 Divas (which is rumored to feature a Michael Jackson song), Ciara tweeted a photo of her most recent hairstyle saying, "Return Of The Rows."  No word on whether Cici’s new ‘do will play a role in her VH1 Divas performance (on Sunday, December 16 at 9PM ET/8C) but the blonde highlights suit her very well.

 

And in new videos….

Fresh off her Jingle Bell 2012 performance at London’s O2 Arena, Rita Ora isn’t letting a Twitter bashing by ex-boyfriend Rob Kardashian slow her down.  She just released a video for her latest single, "Radioactive."

The Euro-pop flavored visuals feature some cool CGI animations and shows the singer living in a futuristice world.  Both the production of the video and the single have a Rihanna-like feel to them.  Shocker.  Watch the video for "Radioactove", off her ORA album, above….
