Apple sells 10 billion: The Top 25 Songs in iTunes History

February 25, 2010

2001 brought an end to an era: Not only was it was the start of a new millennia, but it introduced the end of the Sony Walkman: a 5gb iPod mp3 player.

Steve Jobs introduced the product in October of that year with rave reviews and a $400 price-tag, according to LowEndMac.com. The products were first sold in Europe at a massive rate and later introduced to a worldwide audience. With its later generations, additional capabilities and app store, the iPod helped Apple become the 5th largest electronics retailer in the U.S, according to iLounge.com.

iPhone and Mac aside, Apple and its iPod became a permanent fixture for people of all ages. Because it had literally attracted the world’s attention, the iTunes Store (by which iPod consumers purchase their music) had become a fixture in how the music industry rates its sales. Billboard.com reports that the iTunes Store has sold its 10 billionth song (February 24) and is commemorating by listing the top 25 songs sold in its history. The buyer of the 10 billionth song will be given a $10,000 iTunes gift card from Apple, according to Billboard.com.

Most of the songs on the list were released since 2005, says Billboard, with the exception of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’,” an elder yet recent success after airing in “The Sopranos” series finale and its revamp by FOX’s “Glee” cast.

The list is not surprising, with names such as Lady Gaga, Rihanna, the Black Eyed Peas and Kanye West, but it is names like Ke$ha, however, that offer hope to the newcomers of the industry.

The Top 25 Most Downloaded Songs in iTunes History is as follows:
1. Black Eyed Peas, “I Gotta Feeling”
2. Lady Gaga, “Poker Face”
3. Black Eyed Peas, “Boom Boom Pow”
4. Jason Mraz, “I’m Yours”
5. Coldplay, “Viva La Vida”
6. Lady Gaga, “Just Dance”
7. Flo Rida, “Low”
8. Taylor Swift, “Love Story”
9. Leona Lewis, “Bleeding Love”
10. Ke$ha, “Tick Tock”
11. Rihanna, “Disturbia”
12. P!nk, “So What”
13. Katy Perry “I Kissed a Girl”
14. Beyonce, “Single Ladies”
15. Katy Perry, “Hot N Cold”
16. Kanye West, “Stronger”
17. T.I. feat. Rihanna, “Live Your Life”
18. Plain White T’s, “Hey There Delilah”
19. Flo Rida, “Right Round”
20. Miley Cyrus, “Party in the U.S.A.”
21. Journey, “Don’t Stop Believin'”
22. Lady Gaga, “Bad Romance”
23. Kings of Leon, “Use Somebody”
24. Owl City, “Fireflies”
25. The Fray, “How to Save a Life”
Is Lady Gaga the new Madonna? Are the Black Eyes Peas waltzing with The Beatles?

No one will know for sure, but it is up to the iPod to determine “who’s next?”.

“Forever” — Drake feat. Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Eminem

August 28, 2009

I think Eminem’s verse is the best, but I’ll let the listeners be the judges.

“Run This Town” VIDEO

August 20, 2009

Rihanna: Excellent job!!

Kanye: The usual.

Jay-Z: Nice swagga…lol.

All in all, the video didn’t disappoint me. If Jay-Z was into it a little bit more, it’d been dope, but he is who he is, and doesn’t have to impress.

I rate this video a 4 out of 5 (5 being the highest).

FINALLY!! More photos from the “Run This Town” video shoot

August 11, 2009

Courtesy of TheLifeFiles.com, the last of the leaked photos from the Run This Town shoot are available. Amber Rose makes an appearance, as well, and adds to the dark, crime-filled theme of the soon-to-be released video.

From the look of these shots, I might care more about the video than the song, itself.

Run This Town: Jay-Z & Kanye as Rihanna’s protection?

August 11, 2009

Another leaked photo (above) has surfaced from the “Run This Town” video.

One blog stated that this is Rihanna’s new protection due to the Chris Brown incident in February, but because Rihanna, Jay-Z and Kanye: 1) have a smash hit from Jay-Z’s upcoming album “The Blueprint 3”, and 2) are currently filming its video, I would say that the rumor is false.

I tell ya…bloggers will say anything to get your attention. **sigh**
