Target will not be selling Beyonce’s self titled new album…why…because so many albums were sold on iTunes they probably won’t sell many physical copies of the #1 album. The album sold 617,000 copies in first three days of its release in the US alone. Target Rep Erica Julkowski told Billboard, “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.'”
If I were Target I would still sell the album…people may get it as a gift during the holidays…Wal-Mart will be selling the clean version of her CD.
