For Target, an Aguilera exclusive

September 04, 2008|From the Associated Press

NEW YORK -- Christina Aguilera has become the latest musical act to release an album exclusively through one retailer.

The multi-platinum singer announced Wednesday that her greatest hits CD "Keeps Gettin' Better: A Decade of Hits" would be released only at Target. The CD, out Nov. 11, will feature two new songs as well as rerecorded versions of two other hits, "Genie in a Bottle" and "Beautiful."

Aguilera is following a growing list of acts who have struck exclusive deals with retailers. Wal-Mart has had huge success in similar deals with the Eagles, Journey and Garth Brooks; AC/DC's October release of "Black Ice" will be available only at Wal-Mart, its affiliated Sam's Club and the band's website. The Eagles' "Long Road out of Eden" was the third-bestselling CD of 2007 with 2.6 million copies sold.

Target exclusively released John Legend's "Live From Philadelphia" in January and has had other exclusive releases of albums by Alicia Keys and Carrie Underwood.
