Ciara took off her pants to promote her album Beauty Marks.
It didn't work. Billboard has it opening in 87th place. They don't provide exact sales numbers for albums that low on the chart, but it's doubtful she moved more than a few thousand units.
Her last album,2015's Jackie, did a modest-for-a-major-label-recording-artist 25K in its first week.
Twitter is having petty fun with Ciara's sales disaster:

Ciara should’ve prayed for better album sales like she prayed for Russell— lil bit** (@6_21_3_11_U) May 20, 2019
In better Ciara news, she did get into Harvard Business School's Executive program.
I always dreamt of going to college, but by God’s grace, my music career took me on a path that I’m so thankful for. This week I got accepted into Harvard! Words cannot describe my excitement!— Ciara (@ciara) May 21, 2019
