Now, according to Billboard, Amazon will not be stocking the physical CD edition of the 14-track record... however they will still make the digital version available.

If Amazon buyers really are keen to grab a copy they can hold in their hands, they can still pick one up via the site's third-party 'Marketplace' sellers.

Sources for the US site also claim that Amazon might be having a serious think about further reprisals against Sony Music Entertainmet and Columbia going forward, although reps from neither the label or the merchant returned a request for a comment.

Target also boycotted the release, although Beyonce herself was seen popping into a rival Walmart store to buy a copy of her work.
