The Beatles Reach 5 Million Songs, 1 Million Albums Sold on iTunes


The Loop reports that despite a slowing from the initial surge, The Beatles continue to sell well on Apple's iTunes Store, with over 5 million songs and 1 million albums purchased in the two months since the group's music appeared in the store.

Apple has informed The Loop that the iTunes Store recently exceeded 5 millions Beatles songs and 1 million Beatles albums sold worldwide. "Abbey Road" is the current best-selling Beatles album in the U.S., while "Here Comes the Sun" is the currently best-selling Beatles song.

The Beatles sold over 2 million songs and 450,000 albums in their first week on the store, so the latest data reveals a significant decrease in sales volume after the initial push, although such performance is not unexpected.
