Beyonce sold more than 618,550 copies of her new self-titled album last week — her best showing ever. But not everyone is a fan.

Beyounce234r23-300x168It has now been learned that Target has made the decision not to sell the CD.

The retail titan announced earlier this week that they would not be carrying “Beyonce” in stores since the singer had decided to release the album in digital format first.

“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,” Target spokeswoman Erica Julkowski told Rolling Stone. “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 the physical format at the same time as all other formats.”

For her last album, 2011′s “4,” Beyonce had actually sold an exclusive edition through Target, with six additional tracks.

Other stores will get hard copies of the album beginning on Wednesday, and by Friday at the latest, Rolling Stone reported.

But even then, the full “Beyonce” experience won’t be available to all shoppers. In accordance with a long-standing policy, Walmart will only carry a softened-down “clean” version of the album.


  • Obj. Is a statesman and patriot of great standing. The government of the day should correct the wrongs he pin-pointed not to engage in campaign of columny against the nation’s strong living pillar. An accountable government must tolerate opposing views as against its resistance. Uncle Jonathan, do not listen to the few canals who love their pockets more than the nation.

  • Whether Obasanjo is a good father or not is not the issue. The issue is that Nigeria is sick and much of our travails is traceable to the actions or inactions of the Jonathan administration. It would be unfair to say that Jonathan has achievd nothing. Many of his achievments will only be known after he leaves office. But for goodness sake, let him leave politicking & concentrate on governance. Let him leave personalities & face issues. Let him caution his aides against joining isssues crudely with critics, especialy with those who mean well
