Apple has reported that its iTunes retail store has now sold more than 25 billion download songs (25,000,000,000)! The 25 billionth song “Monkey Drums” (Goksel Vancin remix) by Chase Buch was purchased by Phillip Lupke in Germany, who will receive a $10,000 Euro iTunes Gift card.
iTunes is the number one retailer of music worldwide and averages 15,000 songs downloaded every minute. It’s been an astonishing rise to see a platform reach such worldwide scale … which didn’t even exist ten years ago!
Triple Pop is a proud iTunes authorized Content Distributor. We were one of the very first indie labels to sign a digital distribution contract with Apple way back in 2006. We were thankful that such a great company would choose to give our tiny operation such an opportunity. God Bless Steve Jobs!
