*Ciara says she’s desperate to be dropped from her record label LaFace for failing to support her latest studio set Basic Instinct.
Responding to rumors that she is without a record deal, she said in a Facebook blog post: “At this point that rumor is false. It is true that I have asked and I pray that my label will release me.
“I have had some great times and success with my label but sometimes, like all great things, it’s at that point where I feel we don’t share the same views on who I am as [an] artist.”
She continued: “The past two albums have been very frustrating for me. At times there were songs I chose to lead a project and I was ignored!”
Discussing her last single ‘Gimme Dat’, she admitted: “I spent tens of thousands of my own money only to hear the radio aads tell me my label didn’t want the song played. I even spent more than one hundred thousand dollars out of my pocket on the video to bring my vision to it and still no label support.
“I do understand that some labels are not financially supporting their artists and I have become one of them.”
“Basic Instinct,” peaked at number 44 on the US album chart, and failed to enter the top 200 in the UK.
