Coldplay tops iTunes sales

2008-12-02 08:08
New York - Coldplay was the hottest iTunes album download this year: Its Viva la Vida was crowned the best-selling album of 2008, while Leona Lewis's Bleeding Love was named the top-selling single.

Coldplay's CD has sold more than 2 million copies since its release in June, and has sold more than 500 000 copies digitally - most of which was through iTunes, according to the band's representative.

ITunes does not release its sales figures, its spokesperson said in releasing its list on Monday.

Jack Johnson's Sleep Through the Static was the No 2 selling album, while the soundtrack to the film Juno, Lil Wayne's Tha Carter III and Sara Bareilles' Little Voice rounded out the iTunes top 5.

Two more film soundtracks were in the top ten - Once and Across the Universe - while Jason Mraz' We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things, OneRepublic's Dreaming Out Loud and Leona Lewis's Spirit rounded it out.

Lewis's Bleeding Love sold 3.2 million digitally, according to her label, J Records.

According to iTunes, the title track of Coldplay's album was its No 2 most downloaded track, followed by Low by Flo Rida (featuring T-Pain), Katy Perry's I Kissed a Girl and Rihanna's Disturbia.

Rihanna also made the top 10 singles with Don't Stop the Music, while Lollipop by Lil Wayne and Static Major, No Air by Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown, Sara Bareilles's Love Song and Natasha Bedingfield's Pocketful of Sunshine also made iTunes top 10 downloaded singles list.
