    Default iTunes: 25 Billion Songs Now Sold


    Apple's iTunes store has now sold more than 25 billion songs.

    So noteworthy was the milestone that Apple issued a formal press release to tout the accomplishment.

    “We are grateful to our users whose passion for music over the past 10 years has made iTunes the number one music retailer in the world,” Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services, said in the release.

    The 25 billionth song was “Monkey Drums” (Goksel Vancin Remix) by Chase Buch. The song was purchased by Phillip Lüpke from Germany. As the downloader of the 25 billionth song, Phillip will receive a €10,000 iTunes Gift Card, Apple promises.

    On Wednesday, Apple confirmed that the iTunes store now averages over 15,000 songs downloaded per minute. Apple, however, maintains that the biggest accomplishment of the iTunes store isn't related to revenue. Instead, the best thing to come of iTunes is the opportunity for new artists to reach the masses.

    “In a lot of ways, iTunes has leveled the playing field for musicians," says Wesley Schultz, guitarist and lead vocalist of The Lumineers. "Whether you’re unsigned, indie, major, whatever—it’s the place most people go to buy digital music... iTunes doesn’t exclude any musicians simply because they’re not yet established or popular.”
