Shazam Drives $300 Million in iTunes and Amazon Sales

For some business news today, the mobile app we all know and love, Shazam, reportedly drives in $300 million to iTunes and Amazon each year. Shazam reported that once a user “tags” a song that many of them will download the track from iTunes and Amazon MP3. Shazam said that its users currently are tagging 10 million songs, shows and ads each day. The Executive Vice President of Shazam, David Jones, said

“We don't publish our monthly actives, but I can say that weekly actives are in the tens of millions, and monthly actives are many tens of millions.”

With the addition of Beatport's library being added to Shazam, maybe this will help drive some business for Beatport and maybe it wasn't such a terrible idea for SFX to purchase Beatport after all.
