If you were hoping to buy Beyoncé’s new album at your neighborhood Target store there is bad news.

The Minneapolis-based retailer says it won't be stocking its shelves with the singer’s new music.

Last Friday, Beyoncé surprised fans by releasing a new album exclusively on iTunes with no promotion.

Target says Beyoncé’s decision to sell her album digitally before a CD was released impacts their demand and sales projections.
