Beyonce's Album Not Available At Target, R&B Divas L.A. Gets Two New Divas

Chal is about to tell it like it T I S.
If you plan on buying a physical copy of Beyonce's new self-titled album, don't plan on buying it from retail giant Target. The store has decided not to carry Beyonce's new album largely in part due to iTunes getting the exclusive first. It is noted that iTunes is music's biggest retailer so rightfully so Bee would partner up with them. I do understand Target's reasoning to an extent only because they lose out on revenue, to the tune of 617K(that's the amount of copies Bee's new album has sold in the last three days in the US). Maybe Target will come around after they get over their hissy fit. This is not the first time Target has refused to carry an artist's album. The store refused to sell physical copies of Frank Ocean's channel Orange album when the album appeared on iTunes days before its physical release. Target eventually gave in and started carrying the album months down the line.

Speaking of divas, it has been announced that R&B Divas L.A. will now have two new cast mates, singers Chrisette Michele and Leela James(song: Change Is Gonna Come). Filming for the show is already set to begin and the show will premiere in the second quarter of 2014(April-June). Gone are Kelly Price and Dawn Robinson, with good reason. Viewers disliked both singers on the show and they were pretty annoying. I'm glad to see them leave and I'm wondering how the show will fare with the new cast mates. Thoughts?
