Ciara Addresses Low Album Sales & Being Compared To Beyonce: “My Biggest Competition Is Me”

Ciara


Ciara has been struggling ever since the devastating break-up with her baby daddy Future and her recent low album sales. CiCi recently sat down with The Guardian to chop it up about some of the main issues in her life. When asked about being compared to Beyonce and Rihanna, she had a lot to say. “Everything’s about timing. I’ve had records just as big as those artists, I’ve had #1 songs around the world. My biggest competition is me,” Ciara went on to explain.

“There’s no doubt in my mind how high up this train can go,” CiCi said. “I faced those challenges. I don’t see myself beneath Beyoncé and Jay Z; I don’t see myself above them. I’m in my own world, hungry to grow.”

She also tells a crazy story of her high school graduation that is shocking. “I’m on videotape aged 17 at high school graduation saying: ‘I’m gonna have a #1 song in the Billboard chart and sell 3m copies of my debut album.’ One year later I had a #1 song in the Billboard chart for eight weeks” – well, seven – “and I sold 5m copies of my debut. Now I’m on this next chapter in my life and I can assure you: give me 10 years, it’s gonna be great. I believe it.” Gotta love Ciara and her positive outlook on life. Go, CiCi! Also– make sure to cop her new album Jackie via iTunes here.
