Promo FAIL: The Deluxe Edition Of 4 Is Not Deluxe

Promo FAIL - The Deluxe Edition Of '4' Is Disappointing

Yikes B!

The "Deluxe Edition" of Beyonce's new album is missing some stuff — mostly the deluxe part.

Beyoncé fans who waited in lines at Target for the deluxe edition 4 had a few questions for the retail chain about the singer's new album that they took to Twitter: Where is my copy, and why can’t I access the advertised bonus content?

Lady B teamed with the chain for a special version of the album with a second disc featuring six additional tracks and an “exclusive edition” of her Run the World (Girls) video.

Yesterday fans complained about stores in their area being sold out of the disc, and more important, they weren't able to access the special director’s cut of the video once they did buy the release.

When the disc is inserted into a computer, a message pops up that the video is still being “finalized” but promises the finished product will be “worth the wait.”

Those who purchased the disc were told to try again on Friday for the video — not that long.

    your not calling beowolf anymore? beyonce has being tying to copy shakira since she came out and it simply isn't working for her. the hair looks like absolute shit. now on. and they whole, "i wish iwas latino". yeah honey we know you hate being black but do you have to make it so obvious? don't know how this woman ever got big. she looked good when she was with destiny child but now shes just trying to copy whatevers new (shakira, rihanna etc.) and seems really old. older than she is. that must be the desperation and boy is she desperate.

    Pardon my ignorance, but is that her natural hair? It's beautiful!



  9. 9

    I got my copy yesterday, and I have not had a problem. Stop blowing smoke up our butts Perez….Enough is enough….I know you are just reporting, but c'mon…let the girl do her thing.

    I love the album and the deluxe version is amazing….the remixes and 3 songs are amazing….

    i dont know why but i dont liek beyonce. there something very off about her. i dont know maybe its the fact that when she speaks i could tell that she doesnt have the intelligence to write the songs she proclaims to have written. she just seems very fake to me. and this whole ripoff thing isnt helping. god girl u have more than enough money. just let songwriters take the credit and give people their money due or the right cd

    what is with you picking on a few celebs over and over. 250-300g's of an album is a lot in todays market and after you posted one rumor about her company not expecting it to do welll—-and because you didnt like the cd—-that you want to dog her. Damn I wish someone would beat the fuck out of you and put you in a hospital. maybe then you can get some work done on your always fucking UGLY face.

    Re: zzzdawg – she wishes that was her natural hair… she used to have nice hair as a child but ruined it with chemicals …all she is now is wigs and sew-ins

    At the Glastonbury concert, Beyonce wore her real hair and it looked nice.

    Re: SlaveMeh – lol what? Did you do your research before you posted that? Shakira has indeed been out before beyonce. Shakira isnt just famous in the U.S. She's been out since 1990
    But I don't think bee is channeling her at all though.

    I think thats karma for using Target.

    Perez, you'll be surprised to know that critics are actually receiving "4" very well. She scored 72/100 on metacrit. Also as so many others have mentioned the albums doing really well worldwide. We'll see today (or is it next week) the impact she had in the USA. But keep in mind that just because the album doesn't sell well, does not not mean that it is not good. She wanted to go in a diffrent direction. Something a lot of critics noticed was that there were a lot of non-radio friendly songs which in my opinion is good. It means the artist isn't just making music for the sake of making money (something Katy Perry has done). Kanye West is a another astist who did it and it worked out perfectly that's why he'll always be one of the best in the game.
