It doesn’t take much for the folks behind Google Music to throw a party. Just a couple of weeks after their romantically-themed Valentine’s Day sale, they’ve put on a promotion so special it only comes around one year in four – lucky for us that Google Music is less than a year old. The Leap Year sale starts today, February 29th, and may or may not end today, too. Take your pick of 29 different popular albums for the low price of $2.99 each.
Like previous sales, Google has tried to include an eclectic mix of artists in the promotion. That said, they’re leaning pretty heavily on pop, rap and R&B this time around. Albums from Drake, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Lady GaGa, Big Sean, Jay-Z, Van Halen, Maroon 5, Mary J. Blige, David Guetta, LFMAO, Snoop Dogg, Pink Floyd, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Taylor Swift, The Band Perry, Lady Antebellum, Ellie Goulding, Lana Del Rey, Amy Winehouse, Bob Marley, The Rolling Stones, Jay Dee, Dia Frampton, Elton John, Marvin Gaye and Selena Gomez fill out the ranks, plus NOW 41. (No Frank Sinatra or Willie Nelson? For shame, Google. For shame.)
Considering that most of these albums have 10 songs (giving you a cool average of $.30 per song or lower) and would cost at least twelve bucks in a retail store, it’s a steal if there’s anything you want. Remember that you can download and play Google Music form any PC or Android device, in addition to uploading up to 20,000 of your own songs or for free.
