Model and Property Released

A silent, 10-minute song is climbing the iTunes charts

So why are people buying it?

Samir Mezrahi had the same problem, so he released a song on iTunes called "A a a a a Very Good Song". It is a 10-minute track of silence that users can purchase for $0.99. It sits at 82nd at the time of writing, ahead of artists such as Dua Lipa, DJ Khaled, Keith Urban, and Ed Sheeran.

What it lacks in melody, harmony, vocals, rhythm and dynamics, "A a a a a Very Good Song" makes up for it by buying you enough time to pick the music you actually want to listen to in your auto when you connect your iPhone.

The blank iTunes song, with is cleverly titled with five As so it is the top song alphabetically, gets to be the first one played every time an iPhone is plugged.

For Apple Music users, they can also add the song to their library as part of their subscription.
