It sold 800k online worldwide already. How many more copies is the album really going to sell once it is carried in physical form? Target really does not sell that many CDs to begin with, this being a more well known artist would lead to a lot of copies shipped that just sit on the shelf. This makes sense.
Beyonce remains popular with the baby boomer generation and Generation X, who still prefer physical CDs over digital releases. Outlets such as Target and Wal-Mart still produce high sales for popular mainstream artists because consumers are there purchasing other items and CDs are usually impulse buys. This is a huge mistake on Target's part.
