iTunes: Beatles Claim 14 Top 40 Albums First Day

The Beatles have claimed 15 spots in the Top 40 best-selling albums on iTunes with less than 12 hours of availability. Apple announced that The Fab Four were coming to iTunes earlier on Tuesday, and the band that broke up in 1970 now has 17 albums in the Top 100 on Apple’s service.

The Beatles are performing less well on in sales of single songs, with seven of the Top 100 singles, from #39 to #85.

Both charts have been swiftly changing throughout the day, and the list we compiled below had to be renumbered three times just whilst we were putting it together due to all 17 of the albums’ steady progress higher.
