Talk about a bummer. Less than three weeks after releasing a Deluxe Edition of her semi-successful B’day album, Beyonce Knowles and her camp have pulled the compilation from record store shelves citing the pending lawsuit brought by British singer Des’ree.
As we reported last week, Des’ree claims Beyonce and her record label went ahead and recorded and retitled her single I’m Kissing You without her permission after initial talks broke down. The singer is seeking $150,000 in damages and asked that the song and it’s video be shelved.
This is a very unfortunate turn of events for Beyonce as I’m sure she expected this CD to help push sales of the B’day album which though has been certified 3x platinum- has only sold about 2.5 million copies which is well beneath the 6 million her first CD sold.
And in much better news…
As you all remember, we posted pics of Beyonce shooting a Samsung commercial in midtown Manhattan a few weeks ago. Well the finished product, which is only being shown in Japan, is now available for viewing. Word is an English version will be shown here in the United States when the Beyonce Experience tour reaches our shores.
