Last week’s price changes at iTunes had a measurable effect on the store’s top 100 sellers. In aggregate, the 33 songs that were raised from 99 cents to $1.29 starting April 7 sold 12.5% fewer units last week than they sold in the previous week at the lower price, according to Billboard analysis. The 67 songs that remained at 99 cents sold 9.9% more units compared with the previous week. Despite the price increase, total track sales were up 3% compared with the previous week. Sales of the Billboard Top 200 digital tracks rose 1.3%, and sales of the top 100 tracks rose slightly less than 1%.
