If you thought Ciara and her record label were giving up on the singer’s “Basic Instinct” album, you can think again. Despite poor sales, it appears Def Jam thinks the CD still has legs and plans to release the Usher assisted track, “Turn it Up,” to radio on March 8th.
Since its release on December 14th, “Instinct” has sold less than 100,000 copies and presently sits at #123 on Billboard’s Hot 200 albums chart. Despite these dire numbers, a tour in support of the project is on the horizon for spring 2011. Ciara has been tweeting about rehearsals and said in a recent interview that she hoped to be the type of artist who could tour and make money despite chart position or record sales.
