In today’s music bits, we have Ciara’s Jackie sales, a new track from Jamie Foxx featuring Wale and Diddy’s album release date. More inside…
Last night, LA Reid (above) and Epic Records threw a Jackie dinner for hit-recording artist Ciara. Ciara, shown atop in a Ralph Lauren suit, posted a photo from the dinner on Instagram, as they celebrated her Jackie tour and first week sales. How’d she do? It depends on whether you see the glass half full or half empty.
From a social media perspective, Ciara is doing very well. Her tickets sales (for the #JackieTour) are brisk and her dirty-dancing clip went viral, also, and most importantly, she has the support of label boss LA Reid. And her single “I Bet” is a hit on the radio and at clubs.
Now…..if you’re wondering how the album did last week, it moved roughly 19,856 units and will debut at #14 on the charts. Don’t cry for CiCi…..there’s always time for a 2nd, 3rd or 4th single to come out and shoot the disc into the top 10. Don’t count #Jackie out just yet.

“Feels good when we smoking, fucking, kissing, licking, stroking, touching
Feels good when we cum together, rainy days are perfect weather
Girl you get wetter than a storm, dream get you in real form
We hit it like we ’bout to shoot a porn, uh
Yeah, and I’m gon’ beat it like a drum, beat it like a drum

Bom bom bom bom
Bom, bom bom bom bom”
The forthcoming disc will also feature appearances from Pharrell and Fabolous.
