Now, you understand — this song has been available since 2010. As in, two years ago! And people are STILL downloading it. And what's more, they are PAYING to download it.

It's good to be Katy Perry. (well, career wise anyway.)

As of this week, Katy's smash E.T. (featuring Kanye West) tops the 5 million mark in digital sales, making it her fourth 5-million-seller behind Firework, California Gurls, and Hot N Cold. She stands as the only artist EVER to accomplish this feat, with Lady GaGa hot on her heels with three singles and the Black Eyed Peas and Flo Rida, both with two each.

There aren't any words! This is just … OUTSTANDING! We're extraordinarily proud of you, gurl! You worked hard and you created incredible music and you deserve all the accolades that come along with it!

Watch Out, Google! Apple Securing Deal For Streaming Music With Record Labels!

Filed under: Music MinuteTech Talk

apple-securing-deal-for-streaming-music-with-record-labels

We assumed it would only be a matter of time before they jumped on this bandwagon!

A source close to Apple has revealed that the company is close to securing deals with all four major recording companies about a new music service that will reportedly allow users to stream music stored on computers to portable devices, to avoid one having to use up storage space and connect devices to transfer songs!

According to the insider, the deal - with Universal, Sony, EMI Group, and Warner Brothers - will allow for 'downloading, mobile use and streaming,' and will officially be announced at the Apple annual developers' conference on June 6th!

Uh-oh! We wonder what this will mean for the Google and Amazon cloud music plans!

Either way, it sounds like all three projects will ultimately help get us get our music faster AND easier, so we're pretty psyched!

What do U think?? Are U looking forward to more stream-based tunez??
