    Can they request a Friday/Saturday, or even a Sunday release? Honestly, by the time Tuesday comes around, I'm looking forward to the weekend or next week.

    Just wondering though.

    I think that's the date they pick for retail purposes, cause movies on DVD and @$#% drop on Tuesdays also... & it allows them to get an acquired readfor soundscan/sales purposes... The Billboard #s are in Wens morning, then the charts are updated on Thurs

    But I don't know why Tuesday was the designated day tho... Prolly have to ask Jimmy Iovine or some other industry SoundSCAMMERS...

    Labels have somebody who study the patterns and science to this. They don't have to but they do based off of research.

    True, I just feel like copping something for the weekend gives it a much better chance of getting play.

    Trey Songz dropped on a Monday. G Unit & The Black Album dropped on a Friday. But it seems as though all cds & dvds come out on Tuesdays
