Ciara | ABC

Released in 2013, Ciara’s self-titled album moved approximately 59,000 US copies in its first week of release.

Released last week, follow-up “Jackie” moved fewer than 20,000 US copies in its inaugural frame.

According to Nielsen Music, “Jackie” shifted 19,866 units during the May 4-10 tracking week. It was the seventh-greatest tally for a new release.

The inclusion of Track Equivalent Albums (10 single sales = 1 album sale) and Streaming Equivalent Albums (1500 single streams = 1 album sale) produces a first week consumption total of 25,508 units.

That earns “Jackie” the #17 position on the weekly Billboard 200. Predecessor “Ciara” started at #2 on the chart (which was then a pure sales-only listing).

Of Ciara’s five other studio albums, only 2010’s “Basic Instinct” debuted lower on the Billboard 200. Despite debuting at #44 during the competitive holiday season, that album nonetheless moved a considerably stronger 37,000 complete copies in its first week.
