Ciara’s new single “Jump” makes a strong debut on Billboard.
This week, the Coast Contra-assisted bop enters at No. 4 on Billboard’s R&B Digital Song Sales chart. Elsewhere, the high-octane summer anthem debuts at No. 12 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales chart.
Co-written by Ciara and Theron Thomas, “Jump” was released on July 8 and was accompanied by an electrifying music video. The Dave Meyers-directed video, packed with nostalgic nuggets for her fans to find, has garnered nearly three million views on YouTube.
“Jump” is the lead single from Ciara’s upcoming eighth album, which will release on her Beauty Marks Entertainment imprint, in partnership with Uptown Records and Republic Records.
Ciara announced her new deal earlier this month. “I am thrilled to partner with Uptown/Republic Records through my own label imprint Beauty Marks Entertainment,” she said. “Wendy [Goldstein] and I have been in discussion to work together for some time and the enthusiasm that her and the entire team have expressed over this new project marks an exciting new chapter in my career. I am grateful to be able to continue my mission of making the world dance with a team I admire, who are at the forefront of empowering artists.”
Ciara’s upcoming album is reportedly complete. “I’m actually finished with my album, which I’m really excited about,” she told the Associated Press in May.
Circling back to “Jump,” Ciara recently shared a compilation video of some of her famous friends such as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kim Kardashian singing along to the song. It wouldn’t be a surprise if this turns out to be the next viral challenge for Ciara.
