For those of you who plan on purchasing a physical copy of Beyonce’s new album you won’t find it at Target. The mega store is refusing to sell copies of Beyonce’s latest project due to the exclusive release on itunes last week.
According to Billboard…. A spokesperson from Target had this to say:
“At Target we focus on offering our guests a wide assortment of physical CDs, and when a new album is available digitally before it is available physically, it impacts demand and sales projections. While there are many aspects that contribute to our approach and we have appreciated partnering with Beyonce in the past, we are primarily focused on offering CDs that will be available in a physical format at the same time as all other formats. At this time, Target will not be carrying Beyonce’s new self-titled album Beyonce.”
I don’t think Beyonce is going to lose any sleep over this. Her album has already sold over 800,000 copies in less then a week.
