01. I Did It For Love
This is a situation with a girl that is in love with a guy that is a challenge to her. She is intimidated by him and she knows he is a bad boy, she shouldn’t be loving. Her friends ask why she is so caught up with this guy. She basically says “She Does It For love”
02. Energetic
Is a fun very energetic record for CLUBS around the world, for people at the club to let their hair down. Where there is no limit to allow your self to let go.
05. Eat You Up
Anticipated U.S Debut Single, 'Eat You Up'
Born and Assimilated only for BoA, 'Eat You Up'
Booming Energy stirred by Reverse Beat Dance Track
'Eat You Up'!, the single that will break the news of BoA's name in all over the U.S
'Eat You Up' was chosen as the finest track for BoA after reviewing thousands of songs.
Eat You Up, produced by Henrik Jonback, is a Reverse Beat Dance Track that stirrs Booming Energy, harmonizing BoA's incredible feminine voice to its fullest and creating a really cool cantrast to the agressive beat.
Also BoA's superior dance and artistic sense create perfect harmoy with the music, presenting an impression as if the song is born for BoA.
Above all, America's rap icon, Flo-Rida, who has a hit single, 'Low', which was the number one song in Billboard Single Chart for 10 consecutive weeks from January, 2008, is to feature for the remix version of 'Eat You Up'.

01. Which site should I buy from?! I want to help BoA sales on the Billboard Charts!
------> It's strongly suggested that BoAjjang members use the Amazon link found in this thread to purchase the album. Even though buying from retailers such as Best Buy, Target, etc., will count towards the Charts, buying from the BoAjjang Amazon link will not only count towards charts, BoAjjang will get a percentage from that purchase, which will be used towards future contests for everyone here!
02. When is the album coming out?
------> March 17th, 2009
03. I don't get it! What label is releasing the album?
------> SM Entertainment and Arsenal
04. So, if I buy the album on YesAsia, will it count towards the Charts?
------> It's unknown for now, so it's suggested that you use the Amazon link to be safe.
05. I want to hear BoA's I Did It For Love preview!!!
------> Click here.
06. I see that BoA's rank is ### in the Rock category. Why is it in the Rock category?
------> Good question
07. Is BoA's album available on shelf in Canada!?
------> It'll be available in Canada April 7th. It's also available for purchse on Amazon for April 7th.
08. What's BoA's schedule this month?
------> Check in the "Other" section of this post.
09. People are talking about previews of the album...where is that!?
------> Downloads Section.
10. Wait! This is the end of the FAQs!! I have more questions about the album!
------> Just post in this thread. Do not start another one. Another fellow members or staff will most likely answer you

I'm not in PST, but I only see the partial time... I'm a little nervous.
And she's off the chart. She was 41 on the 16th. but since the album changed to the "partial one" she isn't there anymore. I hope its solved soon. And I hope it doesn't affect sales rate.

Bad news: They are advertising the incomplete album
Ok so here's 2 Links:

Link 1 (CLICK) - this is the link where the album was available for pre-order. The one we've kept a watchful eye on. The one that's in iTunes PLUS. And of course, it's a complete album. BUT it vanished!


Link 2 (CLICK). This is the one that's labeled as a PARTIAL album. Did Ya and I Did It For Love is missing :lol: ! So I just recommend people not to buy the one from link 2. Plus, it's not in iTunes plus.



SO THE BAD NEWS: I just found out the Link 2 I posted is the exact same link the one iTunes US is advertising, which is BAD because I DID IT FOR LOVE (THE CURRENT SINGLE) and Did Ya is MISSING. Like what babilonix said, this is not the same album we pre-ordered or the ones we kept keeping a watch on.

So yes, it's these caps (thanks to Uni) that are advertising the incomplete BoA album:

I've recently chatted with someone who dealt with iTunes pre-orders. It can happen at the stroke of midnite or at times, in the afternoon but never after the day [of the release] ends - that's for sure. This is my first time, too.

I'm beginning to think this isn't just an iTunes thing...

Amazon MP3 also doesn't have "I Did It For Love" or "Did Ya" available for download! Also they wrote it like "I *DId* it for Love" (though still better than iTunes' "I Dild it for Love")

Do you mean this page (click)? IT's labeled as an album only track...interesting. This is a good and bad thing since the bad - people would be discouraged from buying the album completly just for the one song they want and the good - they'll be forced to buy the whole album and enjoy :lol:

Maybe they planned this for the one iTunes also but kinda didn't do it right? This is such a digital mess lol.

uh oh
that might not work right...
I mean if "I did it for love" is unavailable to download for 99 cents and people don't want to buy her full album
they might pirate it :wub:

Yea, I think this was done on purpose. Edit: SM probably wanted people to buy the entire album held off the 2 tracks from being downloaded separately.

They probably bought it from Amazon 'cause that's the only place I know as of now, where you can get the album as a whole digitally. iTunes is the messed up one at the moment...I don't think I'm ever going to sleep tonight lol.

So it's possible to purchase "I did it for love" and "Did ya" online if you purchase the entire digital album on Amazon MP3?

Out of all the songs to be missing it has to be the current single "I Did It For Love". iTunes needs to GET IT TOGETHER. First they mis-spell the damn song and now this. It better end up showing so it has a chance of charting on the iTunes song chart. The Forever 21 site was pretty good exposure. It's also waste of money for the ppl who pre-ordered since they'll be missing tracks. Good thing I'm going to go out and buy a physical copy.

I know this is why I worry. But I shouldn't. I just hope this is very temporary and by the time people want to buy the song, it'd be available.

And don't worry - the one we all pre-ordered is different from what's released now on iTunes (like what I differentiated above on Link 1 and 2). I know we'll get the complete, iTunes plus one (UNLESS they later inform us the pre-order won't happen). I just went under my iTunes pre-order list and clicked on the album link saying it doesn't exist, meaning it's not the partial album we pre-ordered. And yeah I'm gonna get the CD anyway. I just have to wait another 3 weeks :wub:

So it's possible to purchase "I did it for love" and "Did ya" online if you purchase the entire digital album on Amazon MP3?

Yup. This is why those 2 songs are labeled as "Album Only", meaning you'd have to buy the whole album in order to get those songs. I did this with Jordin Sparks Deluxe Version of her album just for her 3 exclusive Deluxe tracks, which happened to be album only :lol:
