Beatles sell two million songs in a week on iTunes
Wednesday 24 November 2010
The Beatles sold more than 450,000 albums and over two million individual songs in the week since their music appeared on Apple's iTunes, Billboard said Tuesday.
Billboard said the best-selling album in the United States was "Abbey Road" and the best-selling song was "Here Comes the Sun."
"Here Comes the Sun" was number 54 on the iTunes list of the top 100 best-selling singles on Tuesday followed by "Let It Be" at number 60, "In My Life" at number 74, "Come Together" at number 90 and "Blackbird" at number 97.
"Abbey Road" was number 17 on the list of the top 50 best-selling albums on iTunes followed by the "White Album" at number 25 and "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" at number 27.
"The Beatles 1967-1970" was number 30 followed by "The Beatles 1962-1966" at number 40, the 149-dollar complete "Beatles Box Set" at number 42 and "Rubber Soul" at number 43.
Apple's iTunes began selling the music of the Beatles on November 16 after years of tortuous negotiations between Apple Corps, the Beatles' company; EMI Group, their record label; and Apple, maker of the Macintosh computer, the iPod, iPhone and iPad.
