iTunes sells 2 Million Songs

Apple released numbers for the past 16 days:



    Apple today announced that over two million songs have been purchased and downloaded from its revolutionary iTunes Music Store since its debut 16 days ago. Continuing the trend set during the first week, over half of the songs purchased to date were purchased as albums, further dispelling concerns that selling music on a per-track basis will destroy album sales.



Apple has previously announced that over 1 million songs had been sold during the first week of sales.
