We all remember when the iTunes store was launched in April 2003 in the US and June 2004 here in the UK. It signified the start of digital music sales as we know it.
By February 2006 iTunes had sold 1bn songs and by June 2008 5bn.
Quite an impressive accomplishment.
And today after 6 successful years iTunes reveals us the top 10 selling titles.
I Gotta Feeling by Black Eyed Peas takes the number one slot having been the biggest seller ever on iTunes.
