Boycotting ‘Beyonce’? Amazon Joins List of Retailers Refusing To Carry New Album [Weigh In]

Beyonce+the+queen Boycotting Beyonce?  Amazon Joins List of Retailers Refusing To Carry New Album [Weigh In]

As fans know, Target may have been a huge celebrator of pop superstar Beyonce‘s ’4′ album, but it’s self titled follow-up cannot boast the same.  In a well-publicized decision, the huge retailer opted against carrying the singer’s 5th album citing unfair ‘preferential treatment’ to Itunes (which exclusively carried the digital version of the album upon its December 13th surprised release).

Now, in another blow to the album, the largest online retailer Amazon has also joined the boycott against Columbia and Sony by refusing to carry the physical copy of the album on its online shelves.

More below:

Via Billboard:

“While Amazon.com is carrying the MP3 version of the album, the online merchant is apparently not stocking the CD version of the album, according to label sources and a check of the site. The album is available, however, via third-party sellers in the Amazon marketplace.

Moreover, while Amazon is carrying the Beyonce MP3 in its store, it does not appear to be supporting the album with any prime real estate. The only way the album is visible if shoppers search for it and will see that the album is there digitally for $15.99.”

“Meanwhile, in addition to being annoyed at the Beyonce exclusive, Amazon is reportedly still steaming that Sony Music Entertainment handed down an edict that Amazon, or any other retailer for that matter, couldn’t pre-sell the Beyonce title.”

*****

So what does this mean?

The news does follow reports that Beyonce, on Itunes’ shoulders alone, passed the 1 million mark in digital sales in less than 7 days.  So, in the now, the news carries less sting.

But, as Amazon is indeed the world’s largest online retailer, it withholding of physical copies of any album – even one of Beyonce’s caliber – will definitely cause a stain on the album’s immediate (see: Christmas sales) and long term success.  Again, Amazon’s gripe is not with Beyonce as much as it is with Columbia/Sony.  So, if Amazon continues this behavior with less profitable Columbia/Sony acts, we can be sure a swift agreement will be made to rectify the situation.

Either way, many brick-and-mortar stores have still stocked their shelves with physical copies of the album.  Amazon cardholders or just fans of the online shopping experience with the retail giant can still opt to purchase it via Amazon’s website from third-party retailers.

Your thoughts?

    I think the retailers are just pissed Beyonce offered the album to iTunes exclusively first before distributing to other retailers.

    This might be retailers trying to send a message.

    Also with over 600K sold on iTunes alone, the likelihood that other retailer will capitalize on the album are slim considering iTunes has already eaten through their market. They are just weighing the potential to shift copies vs demand and with 600K already sold, demand is lower than their estimations.

    Amazon is a HUGE company though, so I’m going with option 1 (trying to send a message).

    I personally didn’t buy the album because it isn’t on the Google Market. And no matter how pretty an iPhone is, beauty cannot cover up an inferior product.
    Target is the one who should be the most angry over this iTunes nonsense because they’re the ones who pushed for her the hardest during her 4 drama.

    Didn’t she camp at Target with Piers Morgan and even had banners all over the store, as well as ads on TV? I see why Target is super mad.

    Also, who buys iPhones anyway? You cannot customize them and they are very limited in what they do. I cannot imagine spending money on that thing when they are much more customizable products out there. I have iTunes on my PC though and it ALWAYS crashes smh.

    I guess they’re thinking business wise like it’s been over a week since that album came out. I can see if she did something like a 2 day special okay..but the fact that walmart does carry the cd they only carry the non explicit edited version in their stores. And of course target is like mad because their the ones that really do those “Get it before it hits” special treatments to shakira, justin timberlake, usher etc. So its like why carry it when everyone and their momma including youtube already has it? and amazon i guess at this point is like f*** it you get it through us but NOT BY US! does google play have the album as well?

    This is what Beyonce should have done, she should have told the other retailers she’ll be dropping this album on iTunes and Google Play for two days, and that it’ll be a secret.

    Immediately after the album drops through digital release, she should have then informed them that manufacturing will begin right away and the the shelves will be stacked nightly as manufacturing is happening whilst the CD is delivered to stores through JIT (nightmare for logistics and inventory management).

    This way, the retailers are happy, consumer is happy, everyone is happy.

    @CakeLikeLadyFlopga
    Gaga sold 1.2 million worldwide with endless promo, a 99 cent deal, and gave away free copies with a Samsung phone. Like MTV reported, it was sold everywhere. She also made history for the biggest 2nd week drop, only to be broken by Artflop. Beyonce is doing it at full price with no promo at all. And most of those sales come from iTunes. You need to stop trying. Beyonce has over 10 years in the business under her belt, Flopga didn’t even last 5.

    I can see why Target and Amazon are mad about the iTunes exclusive deal, especially Target, but aren’t they losing more money by doing this? All their potential sales could very easily go to their biggest competitors Best Buy and Wal-Mart. If I were running them, I would want physical copies at a lower price as soon as possible and doing commercials for it. This could be Beyonce’s biggest selling album of her career, I’d want to cash in on it.

    Nope Target/Amazon are not losing any money by doing this.

    These are retailers that sell video game consoles at $399 – $500, video game discs at $60 and Blu Rays at $22-$34, they’ll lose no sleep if they do not carry Beyonce.

    They have leverage, and they know this. If it was an HMV, then yes they would be losing money, but a Target or Amazon, they won’t care much.

    Beyonce screwed up by excluding them and now they are sending a message, which is why this is a big deal and is being reported.

    I mean despite being discounted to 99c, “Born This Way” still failed to outsell “I Am… Sasha Fierce” in the long run.

    Despite being discounted to $5.99, “ARTFLOP” still can’t outsell “4″ in the US or worldwide and got outsold by “BEYONCE” in a matter of days and hours.

    Beyonce is outselling Daddy GayGay without any discounts, wether you like it or not.

    Bey always seem to have the weirdest obstacles to get around lately. For the last 2 eras it’s been non stop foolishness. The more successful she becomes the more unheard of BS seems to come her way! Bey’s not under contract to give Target first dibs on selling every new album she makes. Business is business and she has to go with the outlet that fits her needs best. She could have easily given Target some kind of exclusive deal (and possibly settle for her album leaking 3 weeks before release AGAIN) or wisely plot a surprise attack on Itunes and benefit from legitimate sales from all the individuals that want to download your music instantly.

    This is a separate venture from “4″, the goal this time around would obviously be to work out the kinks that plagued the 4 era and operate totally differently. Target and Amazon are making this so personal, when it’s not. Many established artists choose to team up with a carrier to boost first week sales. There’s no need for any competitors to make this grand announcement about not supporting a particular artist that don’t give them the upper hand. It sounds like people are b*** hurt and pressed! It’s no surprise though, while other divas get multiple handouts and passes, Bey has to work 10x harder. This comes with the territory when we’re talking Beyonce!

    Actually, 600k in 3 days digitally is an abysmal fail, when you consider the search results and placement of any and all relevant ads and sites to the album. When you are looking at 9 million searches per day for the album, 600k is embarrassing. Kindly learn how to compute comparative equations before attempting to rely on any kind of math for your credibility. Have a great day! :)

    I think the message is actually a warning to all the other artists who would attempt to go the Beyonce way.

    Despite Amazon and Target’s boycott, Beyoncé’s record label Columbia has already shipped 500,000 copies of the album to retailers around the country, according to Billboard. Walmart is among the stores that are selling the album, and Beyoncé expressed her appreciation by appearing at a Walmart in Tewksbury, Massachusetts on Friday night. While there, she handed out $50 gift certificates to store customers.

    But I just saw Beyonce shopping for her own CD, PLUS Christmas shopping for Blue Ivy @ WAL-MART.

    So she is very #UNBOTHERED…..

    Besides, These retailers should start catching on.

    This iTunes exclusive release thing is going to be the thing now with artist and their music, they are tired of being jooped by major retailers, when most consumers can just purchase digitally straight to their iPods, iPhones, iPads, Tablets, Computers, MP3s, and Video Gaming Consoles….

    They need to get the idea that no one will give a f*** about a “Boycott” from Amazon, Target, or Walmart, when In fact it should be the other way around. People need to start ‘Boycotting’ their asses with their extremely low wages they pay their employees and their completely immoral acts and rules.

    Beyonce has only started a trend….

    Soon they will be saying “If you cant Beat em, Join em…”

    Stop spreading lies. Tell the truth or don’t speak what you do not know. Beyonce sold 817k in 3 days. Over a million by day 5. Stop lying, and videos are free, do they sale videos on vevo or YouTube. Who pays for Videos? Stop reaching and stop lying.

    Beyonce is selling her album at a discount, 17 free videos which usually would cost 2$ a piece. That’s a 34$ discount! The album would’ve cost 50$ if everything was bought separate.

    And last time I checked, Wal-Mart is the number one retail store in the world. I’m not a fan of theirs but thats the truth. The number one thing in a business is making money PERIOD. Choosing to boycott a product is money lost, regardless of what other products your selling. Why is everyone acting like Target and Amazon are the only places you can buy albums? People who really want the album will figure out a way to buy it regardless.
