Recession Fever: Lady Gaga Sells New Album for $0.99
"Monday just got a little less murky for all those Lady Gaga fans out there anxiously awaiting the arrival of her new album, Born This Way, as the disc is available for digital download on Amazon today for a mere $0.99.

Fans who drop $0.99 on Gaga’s disc will also score 20 GB of Cloud Drive storage from Amazon, a clear attempt on Amazon’s part to draw more people into the Cloud Player fold and a possible challenge to Google, which offers users more space on its cloud-based music offering, Google Music Beta, but no digital download store." read more - via MAshable
