Wednesday, February 6, 2013 @ 11:50am

The iTunes Store has surpassed 25 billion song downloads, according to an official Apple announcement. The milestone track is said to have been "Monkey Drums (Goskel Vancin Remix)" by Chase Bush, downloaded by Phillip Lüpke in Germany. For his luck Apple is awarding Lüpke a 10,000-euro iTunes gift card.



The iTunes Store is accessible in 119 countries, and hosts somewhere over 26 million songs. Apple's senior VP of Internet software and services, Eddy Cue, comments in the press release that iTunes is averaging about 15,000 downloads per minute. In December Apple engaged in a major expansion of iTunes' reach, bringing it to 56 more countries. Some of the new regions included Russia, Turkey, India, and South Africa. The App Store remains the most widely available Apple service, open in 155 countries.
