The Beatles Sell 2 Million Songs On iTunes

The Beatles have sold over 2 million songs through iTunes since releasing their catalog on the store digitally a little over a week ago. Apple claimed it was a day we’d never forget but this statistic is something we’ll remember more.

Since The Beatles’ debut on the iTunes Store a little over a week ago, the quartet has sold over 2 million songs and 450,000 album downloads. According to Billboard, The Beatle’s top-selling album on iTunes is their 1969 hit Abbey Road. A track from the same album, “Here Comes The Sun” is the band’s top-selling song.

  1. It is about time that the Beatles album is available on itunes. I love using my apple ipod and I think that is important that all ipod owners can download the music of their choice. The Beatles is certainly a popular band for their generation, it is no surprise that over 2 million songs have sold. I am sure that more people will continue to download the music, but the pace will not be as extreme as it was during the first week of sales.
