Apple sells one million songs through iTunes Japan

iTunes Japan hits 1M songs

Apple today announced it has sold more than one million songs from the iTunes Music Store in Japan. The announcement comes just four days after the company launched the Japanese-localized version of its market-leading music service. "iTunes has become Japan's number one online music store in just four days," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "iTunes has sold twice as many songs in just four days as all the other online music services in Japan sell in one month." Apple also said that more than 90 percent of the songs priced are priced 150 per song (about $1.35) and that the new service features a mix of local favorites and popular international artists, with Japanese artists claiming both the number one song (Def Tech) and the number one album (Ulfuls).
