Rejoice, little monsters.
If you missed out on the 99-cent Lady Gaga album “Born This Way“ on Amazon Monday, you’ve been granted a reprise.
Overloaded servers Monday caused consumers to experience difficulties downloading the pop star’s new digital album, which retails for $11.99 on iTunes, flooding Amazon with complaints.
According to a CNET article:
“Clearly customers are really excited for Lady Gaga’s new album–we saw extraordinary response to Monday’s promotion–far above what we expected–she definitely melted some servers,” Craig Pape, director of music for Amazon, said in a statement today. “So we’re doing it again, and this time we’re ready.”
Additionally, when you download the album you’ll receive 20 GB of Amazon Cloud Drive storage for free — a crafty way to entice us all to give the Amazon Cloud Player a try.
Did you have problems downloading the album the first time?
