Was struggling R&B singer Ciara dropped from Jive Records? We don't know for sure. The rumors that Ciara was dropped from the label ran rampant on the Internet yesterday. Sandrarose.com was able to trace the source of the rumor to a foreign wire news service report that was translated into English.

According to the report, Ciara's next single off her Basic Instinct CD, "Turn It Up", was removed from the March 8 release schedule, which seemed to give life to rumors that she was done at Jive. The report went on to say that the "Goodies" singer is believed to be negotiating a new record deal with Interscope Records.

But a well-connected source who I spoke with last night could only say that he thinks Ciara was dropped from the label. He couldn't say with 100% certainty that Jive showed her the door, or confirm the rumor that she may be going over to Interscope.

Ciara's statements to Gerrick Kennedy of the Los Angeles Times reportedly angered Jive label execs, particularly when she said she wasn't bothered by Basic Instinct's poor album sales, but she saw the future and money in touring.

But record labels view success in the number of albums sold, not tours sold. And putting together a successful tour relies on corporate sponsorship, which give weight to albums sales.

    She needs to make up with Jazzy Phe or however you spell it and make another album. C error's current tracks are lackluster at best and all the dancing in the world won't make up for mediocre songs.

    I loved Ciara for her dance skillz only anyways... Maybe she needs to go ahead and become a full time dance instructor and hang up the singing bit.:coffee:

    I find it quite miraculous that she still has a deal or that anyone would be interested in picking her up. Is she selling a lot of singles or ringtones or something? She dang sure ain't selling any albums.

  • Nesia Shanesia

    Talk to us when u have facts....speculations are just that speculations.

    Even she is dropped....her statement is true. THe money for the artist is in touring not album sales. Album sales provide money to the label.

    Yes she makes money off her singles. Anytime someone listens to her single on ytube she gets money, radio spins=money, commericals=money.

    If she is dropped I hope she bounces back. We all have lost a job or two.....so

    I'm from Atlanta, I'm simply trying to support our local talents... I hate seeing the high and mighty working at the waffle house... I ask for a pen they think I want an autograph.. I only want to sign for my patty melt plate...*sigh... SN: I think Atlanta produces the most 15 min/ one hit wonders... (We have a LOT of true talent)(Outkast, Monica, B.O.B, etc) BUT we have a lot off gimmcks too..(Terri Hilson, Ciara, Diamond, Lil Crappy, Shorty Lowe, Solider Boi, and that list is longer...)

  • ChampionSound

    Not being funny, but it might be the best thing for the label to do. If they're spending all of this money on her and not getting anything back, then whats the point?

    As far as touring is concerned, who's really gonna shell out money to see Ciara? Don't worry I'll wait... :whistle:

    Hey Alex : )

  • ALBoy

    @ Queen I thought I was the only one I show out but there is still a WHOLE lot that I dont say

  • VAALLDAY

    Guess she better cut back her 11K a month show habit.

  • VAALLDAY

    shoe I mean

  • pinksghetti

    I feel kinda bad for her if this is true. She needs to take some voice lessons and get better songs, although I did like whatever that song was called that she just had out. Something about "been gone too long I think it's time I bring it back.." I would google but I don't feel like it. Maybe she should try acting because all the other singers/rappers are.

  • Iblondon

    This isn't a surprise. She wasn't making the label any money and people are just not that interested in Ciara. She had to go. She changed her image to that of an A list singer, but her career maintained on the C list level. How much power do an artist have over their projects? You would have think that Jive would have intervene seeing that she was going backwards in her career. It's almost like she wanted to get dropped.

  • Reese

    Ciara will be fine. She can front a wig company like Viv and Brandy to get paper and appear at VFW halls around the country performing her greatest hits.

  • TerranceAllen

    If she did or does get dropped, she will be iight...I mean Ciara was hot when she first came out, and I think she lost a lot of fans when she started changing things up. I like Ciara I mean listening to her on the radio, I have never bought any of her albums, because I like vocalist. She is def an entertainer though...so her strength maybe in touring...just like Frankie Beverly & Maze...that man aint had an album out since 1792 but he still packs the house when he tours. Good luck Ci-Ci...maybe she go be a headliner in Vegas.

    I like Cici...but I also hope that in light of these recent developments, she has began budgeting her money a bit more wisely. Wasn't she just bragging about having a shoe habit that costs her more than $15k monthly sometime in the last year?

    She may have to scale that back...."she's been gone for too long now it's time to take it back"....to Aldo, Bakers, Macy's and Nine West like the rest of the normal folk. :coffee:

    Not only do I want her to stop singing, I want her to PLEASE STOP DANCING!!! what she is doing is TIRED, TIRED & TIRED!!! I saw those dances all through the 90's and they are not coming back! She needs to just model and maybe do commercials or something.

  • only1eboni

    How many times has she "supposedly" been dropped from a label. Honestly, i dont like the new music..Is all she can do is be a dancer. then be a back ground dancer or work with Fatima, or something..
