The iTunes Store has hit yet another milestone. It has surpassed 25 billion song downloads, according to an official Apple announcement. The milestone track was “Monkey Drums (Goskel Vancin Remix)” by Chase Bush, downloaded by Phillip Lüpke in Germany. This lucky German is getting a 10,000-euro iTunes gift card.
This number will continue upward until they hit their next milestone quite easily since the iTunes Store is accessible in 119 countries, and has over 26 million songs. Apple’s senior VP of Internet software and services says that iTunes is averaging about 15,000 downloads per minute.
In December iTunes expanded to 56 more countries, including Russia, Turkey, India, and South Africa.
