The answer to the trivia question will be: Monkey Drums (Goskel Vancin Remix) by Chase Buch. That’s the 25-billionth song bought on iTunes.
Apple announced the sales milestone in a news release Wednesday. The company says Phillip Lupke of Germany bought and downloaded Buch’s song and will receive an iTunes gift card worth about $13,500.
It took the Cupertino, Calif., company almost 10 years to reach the milestone. Customers download an average of 15,000 songs a minute from the iTunes music store, which was launched in April 2003. The digital retailer’s catalog is 26 million songs deep.
