Lady Gaga fans swamp Amazon.com for new album

Lady Gaga fans swamp Amazon.com for new album

SAN FRANCISCO - FANS of Lady Gaga swamped Amazon.com's music service on Monday to get digitised copies of the pop provocateur's new album for just 99 US cents.

Within hours of putting out word that Born This Way was available for 99 cents for one day only at Amazon's Cloud Drive music service, the online retail giant was struggling to catch up with demand.

'We're currently experiencing very high volume,' Amazon said in a message fired off at its official 'MP3' account at microblogging service Twitter. 'If you order today, you will get the full @ladygaga album for US$.99,' the message promised while its music downloads hit delays at the company's overwhelmed computers. 'Thanks for your patience.'

Making the hot release available at less than a tenth of the album's price at Apple online shop iTunes was intended to harden Cloud Drive's position in the market ahead of the expected debut of a similar music service by Apple.

Amazon launched Cloud Drive in late March as a service allowing people to store music on the company's computers and then listen to tunes on any Internet linked gadgets.

Sluggish or delayed downloads at Cloud Drive frustrated some Lady Gaga fans. 'Reminds me why I usually use iTunes,' Twitter user Martin Dittman said in a terse reply to the AmazonMP3 tweet. Other feedback was more adoring, with Twitter user 'filmfanatic24' marveling at being able to get the album at such a low price and telling Amazon 'I love you for it.'
