Google better work though. I want them to come for Itunes wig so badly! I would soo buy Stronger again if it was 25cents but I don't think Sony does those deals since they are trying to start up their own music service.
This is honestly kind of embarrassing for the record industry.
I tell you.

Approaching a song rhythmically, rather than melodically, is something synonymous with Beyonce/DC and probably her claim to fame in respects to the question being posed.Of course CIL pretty much popularized "Go-Go" in popular music. The only other notable "Go-Go" song prior to CIL is "Doin' The Butt", and that was 1988.
An argument could be made that Beyonce is the one who popularized the heavy Urban/Hip-Hop driven backing with R&B outside of the US. "Deja Vu", "Drunk In Love" (in time), and CIL just to name a few.

Anyone know the reasoning behind the 25 cent album?
And I'm guessing this isn't going towards their album sales because the new rule (after Born This Way was released) that an album has to at least 69 cents?
Unit sales for albums priced below $3.49 during their first four weeks of release will not be eligible for inclusion on the Billboard album charts and will not count towards sales data presented by Nielsen SoundScan. The rule also applies to reissued titles.
The thing is, I'm wondering how this will turn out. When a certain group of popstars pulled this stunt with their album and singles, they would get flamed. However, I don't think Coldplay will get attacked. Why? Because they're putting it for 25 cents. It's not contributing to their album sales. I don't think they care, they just want people to listen to their album.
