What is a Digipack?

Digipacks are a type of CD packaging made out of card stock or other heavy paper/cardboard material. Digipacks can flip open like a book, or it can have three parts, so that one portion of the packaging opens to the right and one to the left, with the CD in the centre portion. Usually, the portion of the Digipack that hold the CD is made of plastic like a traditional jewel case CD - the plastic part is simply attached to the paper background.

Features of Digipack:     

Gatefold-book style One or more plastic trays capable of holding CDs or DVDs. Protective UV coating Pictures of artists or band The artist or band name…

These are examples of Digipaks that have falls under our R&B genre song.

The images of the main star tend to stand out mainly because of what they are wearing; therefore it will draw instance attention of the audiences. Sometime effects are used to do so. In this cast they made every golden brown that goes really well in contrast to the white background

Sleeves notes… this tends to talk about the artists of explain some of the music or whatever

This is a two CDs holders format tends to have in images behind them (as shown) this is down for decoration purpose because is not really the main things people focus on.

Again the text shown could be talking about the artist music or about her. Her other CDs are shown which could mean this is a rerelease of this cd.

Again the CD holder is done quite similar to Mariah’s, which is plain and simple with just a background picture behind.

This is a different Digipack compare to the other as It focus more on the images, as you can see the picture takes the whole two page. Again this pictures a very captivating, with the colours she is wearing are very bright and eye will defiantly capture to the die-hard fans attention as they could use it as a poster.

The images yet again stands out, because of what the artist is wearing in this case a low cut dress and a bikini top. Again this draws attention to the audiences and it look like she is look out at them.

The CD cover is where most of the writing is featured on this is because; it talks about every single track on the CD.

As this is a greatest hit album it focuses on her other albums as well which is why it show the other pictures of her past albums just like the “Rihanna album”

Again the Digipack comes with two discs. Unlike the other albums, where the pictures use on the disc holder is just for background decoration, this one has two very strong pictures that the major fans can use for other purpose.

This Digipack focuses on the theme of Beyoncé’s alter ego Sasha Fierce. Beyoncé describes Sasha Fierce as the fun, more sensual, more aggressive, more outspoken side and more glamorous side that comes out when I'm working and when I'm onstage .Her alter ego is supposed to represent strong, independent women. This is meant to come across in the pictures; which I think it does.

Again the Digipack comes with some text that would probably contain information about the artist or the songs or even some lyrics to the songs.
