Update: Best Buy, Target Back to Selling Tyga’s Careless World Album

Best Buy and Target are back to selling Tyga’s album, Careless World: Rise of the Last King.

After Carolyn Aberman, Best Buy’s Public Relations Senior Manager, confirmed with that Tyga’s album has been re-shelved in stores last Thursday (March 1), has learned that Target too has re-shelved the LP.

“Target can confirm that we’ve removed the original version of Tyga’s new album, Careless World, from all Target stores and,” said Target rep Courtney Foster in a recent statement sent to “We have ordered the new version of his album and are currently stocking this new version in our stores nationwide and on”

This news could spell a boost in sales for the YMCMB rapper. Both Best Buy and Target, two of the nation’s largest retailers, pulled the album from their respective shelves after YMCMB failed to clear a sample of Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream” speech included on the LP. That drew the ire of the MLK estate, forcing Best Buy and Target to make a move.

Still, Careless World sold 61,000 copies (83% digitally) first week and debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart, despite the recall. Now, with the album being sold in Best Buy and Target again, perhaps the numbers could receive a jolt.

Careless World includes singles such as “Far Away,” “Rack City” and “Faded,” the latter which features Lil Wayne. “Kings & Queens” features Nas and Wale.

Tyga performed all of those records before a young, sold-out crowd in New York City’s Best Buy Theater last week. —Mark Lelinwalla @XXL_Mark
