Home Celebrity Lady Gaga ARTPOP Flop Deep Discounted to Stay on Charts

What to do when your album isn’t selling? Try giving it away, almost. Lady Gaga’s ARTPOP has been such a dud that amazon.com has been deep discounting it like crazy. The CD sells for $6.99 and the MP3 download goes for $4.99. Albums cost $6.99 back in 1975, if you’re keeping count.

By comparison. Amazon sells Katy Perry’s “Prism” CD for 15 bucks, Britney Spears’s new “Britney Jean” for $11.99, Eminem’s hit “MMLP2” for $16.88, and the new One Direction collection for $19.46.

Lady Gaga’s $4.99 download isn’t exceptional, but it’s about as low as you can go without just tossing the albums in a recycle bin.

Meanwhile, iTunes has left ARTPOP at a full price of $14.99. It’s dropped to number 20 after three weeks.

The amazon sale helped ARTPOP stay in the overall Top 10 this past week and even increase sales a bit according to the hitsdailydouble chart. Last week ARTPOP sank 81% after one week, so Universal Music had to do something.
