I just pre-ordered the new Jay-Z album “Kingdom Come” from iTunes. When I completed the pre-order, it allowed me to download the released single “Show Me What You Got” at no charge. I am not sure if this is new or not, but I love the fact that I do not feel as if I am wasting money when purchasing a pre-release single. Yet, it still serves the primary reason for the pre-release – stirring album sales.
As I typed this, CNet posted a rumor about Apple getting creative with their iTunes pricing. The rumor states that buyers will get credited for previously purchased singles when they buy the album.
Gotta love the digital world.
