Saptamana trecuta v-am spus ca celebra artista americana BEYONCÉ si-a lansat un album nou exclusiv prin intermediul iTunes Store, generand probleme mari pentru compania Apple, ale caror servere nu au facut fata numarului mare de persoane interesate sa-i achizitioneze creatia. In urma succesului neasteptat de mare al noului album, compania Apple a publicat in cursul acestei seri un comunicat de presa prin care anunta lumea intreaga ca noul album al celebrei artiste a fost comercializat in 828,773 de copii in doar 3 zile de disponibilitate, acesta fiind un nou record pentru iTunes Store.
Noul album al BEYONCÉ a depasit si recordul de vanzari al SUA pentru prima saptamana de vanzari cu mai bine de 211.000 de unitati, asa ca vorbim despre o realizare extrem de importanta. Acest lucru demonstreaza din nou cat de important este ecosistemul companiei Apple si ce putere de promovare are iTunes Store-ul, acesta fiind un inceput extrem de important pentru noul album. Inainte sa inchei va spun ca albumul artistei americane are un pret de vanzare de 11€ in Romania, sau 16$ in SUA, puteti face singuri un calcul in legatura cu incasarile totale generate pentru Apple si artist.
