Although mega-star Beyonceand her camp pulled off a “genius” marketing campaign in the release of her 14 track and 17 accompanying visuals for her new album, it seems, it will cost her. Retailer Target is refusing to sell the singer’s fifth studio album, ‘Beyonce’.
The surprising decision comes on the heels of the album’s iTunes success — selling 828,773 copies worldwide in just three day and going #1 in over 100 countries.
“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 spokesperson Erica Julkowski tells Billboard.
The singer was visibly smaller; an indication that he’s loss some way. Although not looking his healthiest, Brown still seemed jovial, taking photos with Aiko and fans who were at the listening party in Los Angeles.
With all the promotion Miley Cyrus has been getting lately, we hope, her new album, “Bangerz”, goes platinum in its first week.
Although, a million copies is one week may be unlikely, we think she’ll still come out on top. From the infamous MTV VMAs performance, twerking in a onesie, appearing on SNL and taking over the Today show, we’re pretty much convinced it’s Miley’s world and we’re just living in it.
Chris Brown has finally gotten a release date for his upcoming ‘X’ album.
The singer took to Twitter to share the news when he tweeted, “111913!,” along with changing his background image to the above. It’s presumed the photo is also the album cover artwork.
Amidst all the drama in the singer’s personal and professional life, singles “Fine China” and “Love More” have not generated the buzz the singer and his team expected. In fact, it’s perhaps one of the reasons the album was initially pushed back from it’s previous release date. However, one thing’s clear, Brown is determined to go ahead with the project — making it his best album yet.
Kanye West recently held his ‘Yeezus’ album release party and he had quite a bit to say about his forthcoming album release and it’s title.
At the release party Kanye began with, “We didn’t give a f*ck about what nobody said from the outside looking in. We just wanted to make the best product possible and this is just the beginning of an entire new mentality about how to make music.”
After a lengthy speech about working on the album with the assistant of Def Jam President Rick Rubin, Kanye then proclaims, “I wanna explain something about the title Yeezus. Simply put, West was my slave name and Yeezus is my god name.”
This girl is certainly on fire! Who knew Alicia Keys and word freak could be put in the same sentence. The singer reportedly brought out a stripper at her own album release party.
“A witness at the star-studded shindig, which drew Keys’ hubby Swizz Beats, Justin Timberlake, Maxwell, DJ Cassidy and Gary Clark Jr., tells us “jaws dropped” during a sultry “reverse strip-tease” that Keys watched from front and center.”
