How did Ciara get rich?
Ciara really boosted her popularity in her early 20s. After releasing two albums that brought her a lot of fame, fans, and worldwide recognition, the singer released five more studio albums. In October 2008, Ciara was honored by Billboard as the “Woman of the Year” thanks to her success as a recording artist, especially in that year. Although it wasn’t as successful as her previous two albums, her third album “Fantasy Ride” was released in May 2009. The talented artist continued with her momentum as she headlined the “Jay-Z & Ciara Live” tour alongside Jay-Z. Also during that time, Ciara was also the support act for Britney Spears‘ tour “Circus”. In 2010, her fourth studio album “Basic Instinct” was released and it also contributed a lot to Ciara’s success.
In 2011, Ciara left Jive Records due to dissatisfaction and frustration. She then reunited with L.A. Reid and signed to his record label Epic Records. Ciara’s next album was supposed to be titled “One Woman Army”, however, she changed that and instead released “Ciara” in April 2013. Besides music, Ciara appeared in the movies “Mama”, “ I want to Sing!”, “That’s My Boy”, and “The Game”. While she was promoting her fourth album, Ciara kept working on her next album. In April 2014, she announced her engagement to rapper and then-boyfriend Future, and a month later, in May, the singer welcomed her first child, a boy.
After taking some time, the young mother returned to the music industry and released her sixth studio album “Jackie” in May 2015. Immediately after the release of the album, she embarked on her first headlining tour in over six years. The tour lasted nearly a month and it only took place in the United States. During that time, Ciara announced she’s no longer with Future and announced her engagement to Russell Wilson, a Seattle Seahawks quarterback. The couple was married in July 2016, and a year later, they welcomed their first child together, a girl, born in April 2017. In early 2017, Ciara announced that she signed a deal with Warner Bros. Records. Two years later, in May 2019, she released her seventh album “Beauty Marks” and went on another hiatus after announcing she’s pregnant with her third child.
Why is she so famous?
Ciara’s career began when she was a teenager. After the “Hearsay” group with her friends didn’t work out, she was determined to reach her goals and signed a publishing deal to work as a songwriter. In what was her first writing credit, she contributed to the writing of Blu Cantrell’s song “10,000 Times”, which was added to her debut album “So Blu”. In 2003, after she graduated from the Riverdale High School, Ciara was signed by L.A. Reid to his label “LaFace Records”, thanks in parts to the producer Jazze Pha. The singer then spent both 2003 and 2004 to work on her debut album.
In September 2004, Ciara’s debut album “Goodies” was released and it debuted at number 3 on the “Billboard 200” chart. The album topped a lot of R&B/Hip-Hop charts and following its release, Ciara was dubbed the “First Lady of Crunk&B”. That’s because she was one of the first artists to introduce the mix of contemporary R&B and crunk music. The success of “Goodies” was instant. Not only did it remain for 71 weeks on the “Billboard 200” chart but it also sold nearly 3 million copies and became a certified three-times platinum by the RIAA. Ciara’s very first single, “Goodies” was released on June 8, three months before the album. It quickly became a viral hit that many described as the “anthem of the summer”, as well as one of the best singles of 2004.
Following the success of her debut single and album, in July 2005, Ciara released a CD/DVD which was called “Goodies: The Videos and More”. Besides the DVD, in 2005, Ciara appeared in multiple awards shows where she won a lot of awards such as BET, Dirty, MTV Video Music, and Soul Train Music Awards. The success for the young singer continued the following year when she was nominated for a Grammy award in the category “Best New Artist”. Although she was unable to win the award, Ciara won another award during the same event – “Best Short Form Music Video” which is a collaboration between herself, Missy Elliot, and Fat Man Scoop. Ciara’s second album “Ciara: The Evolution” was released in December 2006 and it became her first album to reach number 1 on the “Billboard 200” chart. Within five weeks of the release, there were more than 1.3 million copies sold.
What makes her successful?
The main reason why Ciara is so successful is because she’s not only a singer, songwriter, and dancer. This multi-talented artist has taken the world by storm and appeared in a number of movies, TV-series, reality shows, and music awards. She is also passionate about beauty and fashion.
In 2009 she signed a multi million-dollar deal with modeling agency Wilhelmina Models, and in 2016, while working on her new music, Ciara signed a modeling contract with international giant IMG. During that time, she also became a Global Brand Ambassador to the cosmetics giant Revlon. She has appeared in many magazines such as Billboard, Cosmopolitan, Vogue, and InStyle, to name a few.
It’s no secret that Ciara is one of the most popular artists in the 21st century because she is multi-talented. Acting, singing, modeling, she has done it all and continues to grow her career in different fields. Almost 20 years since her debut album was released, the artist continues to shine and release new music that’s enjoyed by millions around the world.
