We first mentioned this back in January, but now the L.A. Times puts a date on it: Hottest tracks to cost $1.29 at iTunes starting April 7.
The world’s largest music store, Apple’s iTunes, plans to boost the price of many hit singles and selected classic tracks to $1.29 on April 7, breaking the psychological barrier of 99 cents in what could be the first big test of how much consumers are willing to pay to download individual songs.
Although the date for higher prices has not been publicly announced, Apple has been notifying record labels it will go into effect on that date, industry executives said.
So what do you think? You willing to spend thirty cents more for that new Flo Rida jam?
