#1 music retailer in the US – Apple!

Apple officially says it’s the #1 music retailer in the US

68904F12-BE54-4575-9731-A79E90B9F6D1.jpgBased on today’s earlier leak of some weekly NPD marketshare data, we had our doubts that Apple had actually overtaken Wal-Mart as the number one music retailer in the US, but it looks like that January surge of iTunes gift cards and new iPod owners pushed it over the top for good — and now we’ve got the PR to prove it. Apple’s giving out the same “4 billion songs to 50 million customers” numbers as it has for a while now, but it says iTunes was the biggest game in town in January and February. Of course, there’s a lot of 2008 left to go, so Wally might make a comeback — it was the overall champ last year — but Apple’s achievement is still a major milestone for digitally distributed content, and we hope to see a lot more iTunes-like services on that list soon.
