Beyonce Fans Get "Punked" With "Lemonade" Vinyl Mixup
(AllHipHop News) Fans who purchased the vinyl version of Beyonce's Lemonade album in Europe have been offered refunds after a pressing mix-up.
Customers received a surprise earlier this month after discovering songs from Canadian punk band ZEX had accidentally been included on the yellow vinyl's Side A, which should have featured tracks like "Hold Up" and "Sorry."
Instead, the record had been pressed with tunes from ZEX's recent release, Uphill Battle.
Label bosses at Columbia Records, a subsidiary of Sony Music, have now apologized for the mistake and issued refunds and replacement copies of Lemonade for those affected.
"Due to human error at the Celebrate Records plant in Germany, which Sony uses to manufacture vinyl, a small amount of the European run of the Beyonce 'Lemonade' vinyl included music from Canadian punk band, ZEX, on Side A," reads a statement issued by officials at Columbia, to which Beyonce is signed.
It continues: "Beyonce and ZEX were not aware of or responsible for the mispress. Fans who purchased the vinyl will be refunded and given a replacement copy. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused."
