Wow, Amazon (it is Amazon - NOT the label who sets the price for this) really is pushing the boat out here. Top estimate I've seen for this record is in excess of 1m first week... that would be amazing... and I can see it happening.

This isn't desperate, its marketing.

Listening to this album for the first time now. Isn't clicking with me automatically like TF and TFM but I think I just have to give it a few more spins.

Edit: Hair is amazing.

Sounds like they're trying to avoid the Katy Perry thing; people bought the singles but didn't buy the album once it was released. Now you can get the entire album for the price of one single.... Smart thinking, Interscope.

how is this a good marketing tactic? she's giving away her album for practically free, thus leaving virtually no room for other mass amounts of sales, especially physical. she obviously wants to be number one quickly, yet when her sales go down the toilet because this version is no longer attainable, where will she be?

She was pretty much already guaranteed #1 on itunes in at least 5 countries so I doubt these $1 amazon sales will be a problem. Speaking of which, she's 2 countries away from being #1 in 23 countries at the moment.

you think she doesn't want to break records? lol. she does. the point of marketing isn't just to get people's attention, it's to keep people's attention. you really think this will give her longevity? idts. we'll see though.

Make it worldwide and of course I'll buy it. Even though I don't like the record.
