Did you wake you this morning wondering where the hell E.T was? Apparently, the remix featuring Mr.West has been removed worldwide. Apple and Katy’s team have yet to comment on the situation. Some say it’s a marketing ploy to increase the sales of the original version (which is already at #6 on Itunes U.S). Once the music video is released on the 31st, the remix would then be released again with it. Therefore, she would have two top ten singles.
Will this affect her sales?
Don’t rejoice yet Gaga fans. This “glitch” will only affect 2 days of the sales week. E.T has been selling strongly all week, maintaining a #2 position before being deleted. Her position on next week’s Hot 100 shouldn’t change at all. However, with Gaga hitting #1 this week on Pop Songs and the release of Born This Way (The Country Road Version) the race for #1 is closer than ever. Find out on Thursday when Billboard updates the Hot 100 to see who takes the coveted position.
