Flavor In The Street

Hello World! Flavor In The Street was something I wanted to do, because I felt I had grown since my previous websites. I feel like I was seeing blogging from a different perspective. At one time, I saw this as more of something I did for fun, and I still continue to see blogging as this, but I also have grown a passion for it. I'm getting a platform, where I get to fully express my views on topics in music. I feel like my opinion is rarely heard, and I want to be viewed as the voice of my generation soon. We never get a platform to talk, and it's now just the beginning. 

The idea of Flavor In The Street was just to restart my brand. I had gotten the idea of the title from one of my favorite shows, "Living Single" along with the slang, 'Word On The Street.' As many of you know, Khadijah James had owned a magazine company titled, "Flavor." I got the idea by combining the two, which later birthed 'Flavor In The Street.'

I'm quite a hard-working kid. I manage to keep my grades together, while running this blog. I've never quite looked into adding more writers to help grow the brand, but of course I'm open to trying new ideas. I plan to adventure quite a lot when I get older, and my taste in music varies. 

Uh-Oh: Ciara Addresses 'Jackie' Album Sales/ Says That She's Never Been 'Worried' About Her Sales?

Recently, during an interview with Philadelphia’s Power 99 RNGMS, it seems Ciara was asked about how she felt about her recent sales for her album, 'Jackie.'

Ciara respectively answered saying, that of course she would've wished for the best, considering that Ciara has deemed this her best album to date, but she says with the recent success she has recieved from her tour, (etc.) she has more to worry about than just her album sales. I mean, I'm glad that the interviewer really took it there, because while Ciara has always been such a humble person, I've always wonder if Ciara ever had a limit, to particular questions being asked, but she respectively answered, and I love the fact that she was so open to answering this.

At times though, I really question whether I see a rise for Ciara in her career, because for some particular reason, many seem to hold a grudge towards her, when she is in general a sweet artist. I just feel at times, she needs help finding direction, because I don't think Ciara has ever really been an artist to chase for success, but that's what fans want for her.

Ciara even went on to say, that she has been in the industry for 13 years. 22,000 copies in the first week doesn't sound as bad, only considering the fact that not many really had high expectations for the album, and no one should use sales as an excuse to whether an album is good or not. Based whether an album is good on your personal opinion. LIke I said before, Ciara is in a happier state, meaning certain things just don't bother her as they used to. Of course, I think everything seemed self-explanatory, regarding Ciara's take on her album sales. I mean, why wouldn't you wish yourself the best?

For starters this album didn't do well, due to single releases. Once Ciara's leading single was released, it took a couple weeks, before it hit outlets where fans could purchase it. I'm sure by then, many had come to decision whether or not they really wanted to buy the single, or forgot. The album overall just seemed very forced, and the promotion just came around too late for the album. Also, for all we know, Ciara's tour could be having an effect on the low sales for her album as well. Ciara's fanbase doesn't consist of a young audience, meaning that it is generally young adults. By this age, many are probably really beginning adulthood, such as purchasing an apartment or car. If Ciara is releasing a album, and beginning a tour, this could cause much conflict for fans, as they maybe couldn't have purchased for both. I mean, they're many conclusions, but I'm glad that Ciara is still keeping a big heart, and moving forward. Much really can't be addressed anyway. You just would've wished for the best for your album. The end...
