The discount mega store says they won't be selling Beyonce's record-breaking self titled album because she released it exclusively on iTunes first Beyonce KnowlesIf you're looking to buy Beyonce's latest album, don't bother trying to find it at Target.

The discount mega chain is refusing to sell her fifth album because she exclusively released it to iTunes first last Friday.

"At Target we focus on offering our guests a wide assortment of physical CDs, and when a new album is available digitally before it is available physically, it impacts demand and sales projections. At this time, Target will not be carrying Beyonce's new self-titled album 'Beyonce'," a spokespeson told E! News of their decision.

The 32-year-old singer made history when she debuted her album on iTunes with no prior announcement or promotion.

"I didn't want to release my music the way I've done it," Bey explained. "I am bored with it."

Target refusing to sell her CD isn't slowing down Jay-Z's wife, though. Despite her unique release, Beyonce made history when her album debuted at number 1 on the Billboard charts. She's the first woman to have five consecutive studio albums debut at number 1.

And that's why they call her Queen Bey!
