In the most unbelievable moment of 2015 (possibly in history), it turns out people actually
like U2. No, you read that right! People like U2. I mean it's one thing to have their album in your iTunes, but people are listening
to U2. According to an independent study conducted by the Kantar Group, 23% of ALL music listened to on iOS devices throughout January 2015 was actually U2. THIS IS NOT A JOKE. That means 1 out of 4 people with an iPhone, iPod, iPad, or Apple product of any kind has listened to U2 this year. It is with a heavy heart that I have to tell you that it is very possible one of your friends actually listens to U2. Trust no one..
After U2 forced their way into our iTunes with the release of their new album Songs of Innocence
you would think that people would have finally had enough of them. Maybe it was the fool-hearted decision by Rolling Stone
to name their supposed 'terrorist attack'
Album of the Year that has people interested. Maybe people just feel bad for Bono. After nearly dying in a plane crash and shattering his arm in an accident that could prevent him from playing guitar again (thank you music Gods) in the span of two months, I guess
people had reason to listen to their album. But the numbers don't add up. I am not kidding when I say I don't know one single person who has listened to that album... or least admitted listening to that album.
The report also found that in January, more iOS users listened to U2 than the runners up combined. The runners up are Taylor Swift and Katy Perry. Last time I checked, those two artists ran pop radio, and were loved by almost everyone. Hell, even Kanye West is a Swiftie now! The end is near. The figures suggest one 1/4 of the iPhone community is affected. I'm not suggesting that Apple and U2 have created a digital virus that turns iOS users into Bono loving zombies, I'M TELLING YOU.
If you don't believe me, explain this...
