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. 

The Sales Are In! Ciara's 'Jackie' Debuts At No. 17 On The Billboard 200/ Sold "19,000" Copies?

Recently, it was said that Ciara's album 'Jackie' sold 19,000 copies in its first week.

Ciara addressed her take on the album sales earlier this week during an interview basically saying, that of course she would've wanted the best for this album, considering that she deems this her best work yet. I'll just say, that Ciara has never been an artist, that I based her music based on her sales, because I personally feel sales have no relation to the album itself. I think it's sad, that after being in the music industry for 10+ years, Ciara still hasn't quite found success, and I know success isn't everything. I mean, Ciara has said herself that she is in a happier state in her life, but I feel fans just want to see her win, and her team just isn't giving her the kind of treatment she deserves to have a success on her hands.

I feel, with a little more promotion Ciara could've definitely did much better, than what she got as her result. I just didn't feel Ciara exactly hit the right platforms to promote this album. Also, we live in a industry, where many just aren't buying the music the way they used to, which was the purpose of streaming rules. With streaming, this raises Ciara's sales to at least 25,000 having the singer debut at #17. Really, I've never been one to support Ciara's music, but I still see her potential. Possibly Ciara's tour, being around the same date as the release of her album, could've bought conflict toward the album sales, as I said before. Many just don't have that money to buy both an album, and support a show. Still, I'm just hoping Ciara keeps a big heart, and doesn't let this get to her. I mean, which R&B artist has recieved successful album sales recently?
