Just 2 months after the November 16th digital debut of The Beatles on iTunes, Apple has announced that it has sold more than 5 million track downloads and 1 million album downloads worldwide.  2 million of those tracks were sold in just the first week.  "Abbey Road" and "Here Comes the Sun" are respectively the current best-selling Beatles album and song in the U.S.

The Beatles 13 remastered studio albums, the two-volume “Past Masters” compilation and the “Red” and “Blue” collections are only available for digital download on iTunes worldwide. iTunes also has the exclusive rights to a  special digital edition of the “Beatles Box Set” featuring the “Live at the Washington Coliseum, 1964” concert film.

“We’re really excited to bring the Beatles’ music to iTunes,” said Sir Paul McCartney at the November launch. “It’s fantastic to see the songs we originally released on vinyl receive as much love in the digital world as they did the first time around.”
