Houston Price Hike
February 14, 2012 by staff
Houston Price Hike, Whitney Houston was found dead in a Beverly Hills hotel on Saturday. She was 48. Dubai: Sony Music has been accused of trying to capitalise on Whitney Houston’s death by increasing the prices of the singer’s albums hours after she was pronounced dead.
The recording company allegedly lifted the wholesale price of Houston’s greatest hit album, The Ultimate Collection, at about 4am California time on Sunday, according to the Guardian.co.uk. The retail price of the album then automatically increased on iTunes from 4.99GBP to 7.99GBP.
Three of Houston’s albums – The Ultimate Collection, Whitney – The Greatest Hits and the soundtrack for The Bodyguard – were on the iTunes Top 10 downloaded albums list on Monday. The song I Will Always Love You also briefly topped the Singles chart.
While iTune’s price hike only reflected the changes made by Sony Music, which owns the rights to much of Houston’s back catalogue, fans have taken to the internet to criticise the move.
