You can say that people are pretty much over Lady Gaga and her theatrics, Her album ARTPOP dropped just last month and they already slashed the prices down tremendously to $4.99. . Amazon sells Katy Perry’s “Prism” CD for 15 bucks, Britney Spears’s new “Britney Jean” for $11.99, Eminem’s hit “MMLP2″ for $16.88, and the new One Direction collection for $19.46. Even with the deep discount, sadly I’m still not buying it.
Lady Gaga’s $4.99 download isn’t exceptional, but it’s about as low as you can go without just tossing the albums in a recycle bin. Meanwhile, iTunes has left ARTPOP at a full price of $14.99. It’s dropped to number 20 after three weeks.
The amazon sale helped ARTPOP stay in the overall Top 10 this past week and even increase sales a bit according to the hitsdailydouble chart. Last week ARTPOP sank 81% after one week, so Universal Music had to do something.
