Beyonce gets the best Christmas gift of all: 1 million sales of her surprise “Beyonce” “visual” album through the end of this week. Hitsdailydouble says she’s sold 375,000 copies this week including 100,000 physical CDs. This, despite Amazon and Target refusing to sell the physical CD because they’re mad the original digital version was exclusive to iTunes.
Amazon.com isn’t totally stupid, though. You can download the album via their system. But why would you, at the same price as iTunes, with no add ons? Amazon should have pushed the physical CD. I think they screwed that up. People come to Amazon for the actual CDs, not the downloads. Anyway. Jeff Bezos didn’t ask me, and he has 90 zillion dollars.
Meanwhile, the Beyonce album has already spawned its first hit single, “Drunk in Love,” with guess who? Jay Z.
