iTunes tops 50 Million Songs

Apple announced today that the iTunes Music Store has sold over 50 million songs to date.

This figure does not include promotional songs given away in the iTunes-Pepsi giveaway.

Crossing 50 million songs is a major milestone for iTunes and the emerging digital music era, said Steve Jobs, Apples CEO. With over 50 million songs already downloaded and an additional 2.5 million songs being downloaded every week, its increasingly difficult to imagine others ever catching up with iTunes.
