Lady Gaga Sales Meltdown Amazon’s Music Servers

Posted by at 12:50 am on May 24, 2011

Amazon should have really planned better for this and especially after the outage to its S3 services. Offering Lady Gaga’s newest album, Born This Way,  for 99 cents was sure to light the Internet on fire — and now Amazon is in meltdown.

The downloads aren’t coming through, users report. People quickly made the purchase, but then found that all 14 tracks weren’t there.

Amazon admitted that it is “experiencing high volume” and that the downloads are delayed. “If you order today, you will get the full @ladygaga album for $.99,” the company said on Twitter. “Thanks for your patience.”
