Buy Taylor Swift's brand new '1989' album for just 99 cents via Xbox Music

Microsoft is giving pop music lovers a huge deal this week by offering '1989', the brand new album from mega-popular artist Taylor Swift, for the price of just 99 cents on Xbox Music.

The price cut, which is also revealed on Microsoft's recently launched Music Deals app, should last for the next week. Microsoft has also offered 101 other albums for download for $1.99 or less for the next seven days as well. However, the company must have made a major effort to secure the the rights to Swift's long awaited, and heavily hyped, '1989' album for such a low price point the same week it is released on CD and via other music download outlets like iTunes, which has priced it at $12.99.

As with all of the Music Deal discounts on Xbox Music, this is just for US residents. Do you plan to purchase and download '1989' before the 99 cents deal runs out?

  • Nope!
  • So many nopes...
  • Is it bad that I'll probably never listen to it and I already have a music pass, but I still want to buy this because it is such a good deal?
  • It's a great album, tho. You might not like it, but probably someone you know will
  • But I don't know anyone that mentally deranged :\
  • Haha, I was considering the same thing, but then decided that if it's not included with my Music Pass, not worth downloading.
  • It's not bad, just stupid...
  • You'd need to buy it to be able to hear it anyway. Taylor dislikes streaming services and her albums are not available for stream in the first weeks. The new Black Veil Brides' album is available at the same price. Check it out as well.
  • Black Veil Brides is actually a pretty damn good rock band. People just hate on them for their style because they're idiots. BVB has that 80's rock band feel to them which I can dig.
  • I totally feel the same way
  • I bought it straight after seeing that headline this morning. It's honestly not bad, a few good tracks. Definitely not regretting buying it.
    But I can definitely suggest better albums and artists if you like pop. Marina & The Diamonds' Electra Heart is a good one if you haven't listened to it.
  • I would rather die first before buying or listening to that. She's as bad as the other top 40 crap. Mainstream music today sucks.
  • Hmm... I have to ask... How do you know it sucks our is creak if you've never listened to it? Main reason I have an Xbox music pass with 10 keepers pretty month is because I can try before I buy. Check it out, you might like it. And I say that without hearing it myself...i just cannot stand blanket statements like "as bad as the other top 40 crap". Isn't that a rotating list? Anything that ends up on the top 40 is "crap"? I'm sure historical records will prove otherwise, even to yourself.
  • Nicely put WPNoob.
  • Because I hear all this garbage when I go to a convenient store or shopping mall. Nearly all the actual "music" in top 40 stuff today is recycled crap. The lyrics are dumb, as if written by teenagers.
  • +925 tried it once, never doing it again
  • Crap music doesn't exist. I like some kind of music, you like some kind of music, that's all. Although, I don't like Swift's music also.
  • How does it suck when it draws inspiration from the 80s and early 90s?
  • I got it. Kinda a guilty pleasure of mine. Fyi the album is actually one of the best pop albums I've listened too all year. Also Xbox music deals app has a nice list of discounts on many popular albums.
  • It's really good, isn't it? I was expecting something completely generic after listening to the first single. I'm glad the album is everything but similar to Shake it Off
  • I agree, I got it, and I really like the direction she's taking with this album.  As a grown-ass man, this is definitely a guilty pleasure of mine.  That and Disney soundtracks.
  • Her music, much like the rest of the top 40, is geared towards dumb teens and easily impressed adults. Lyrics suck, music is recycled crap. If she didn't have a pretty face, shed have a different career.
  • That's stereotypical. Try and listen to some of her music. I'm not a huge fan but there's something in her or other Top 40 artists' music worth a try
  • Yes!! Her heavily altered and modified voice (thanks to the technology) is fine but she just can't sing live. It's so poor.
    I am totally the biggest fan of an American band MUTEMATH whose live performance is so much breath taking that one can forget every other artist or band!! (:
  • The funniest thing is that if Kayne hadn't done his douche-lord manoeuver ("imma let you finish") then she'd be practically unknown outside of the US
  • What career would that be?
  • Firing up the bittorrent...
  • C'mon man....99 pennies...I'm sure you have lots of those laying around the house.
  • Alright alright you stirred my goodie goodie side. Lol
  • I noticed the price, was shocked, bought it, was very surprised at how good it is, and listened to repeat all day. Like the guy above, I guess it is a guilty pleasure.
  • Talk to Gaben
  • Haha. Not even worth downloading it through torrents but I like your thinking ;)
  • Lol. Naw.
  • Hell no xD
  • Silly that as a subscriber I can only listen to 30 sec previews of it.
  • Blame her label.
  • Taylor dislikes streaming services. Her albums are always purchase-only for some weeks.
  • I highly doubt its her that makes those decisions lol
  • I doubt she dislikes streaming services.
    The reality is that she knows she has so many nutjob fans (her equivalent of beliebers/directioners) and she knows she'll make a mint from them being desperate to get her album on their devices.
  • I won't be picking this up, either, but I did see it on the store and am pretty impressed with that price, as well.
  • I bought it, def one of her best to date. Her working with Jack Antonoff shows, and it sounds great(I think)!
  • Yeah, I think it's her beat work to date. Even though some songs are crap (Shake it Off), there are some really great songs in it.
  • I personally like her Country stuff a lot more, but there are some great Pop songs on this album as well; and it is very well reviewed by major music press.    
  • So do I. Her country music is so much better and she wanted to go into pop but RED was an album I really liked, this one I don't like it that much, I think I'm listening to another artist.
  • They would have to pay me to download it
  • They would have to do more than that of they wanted me to.
  • I'm glad she's still herself and not trying to be the next Miley Cyrus just to get attention. Great album, by the way
  • Ya, she can't keep a boyfriend. Guys run away from Taylor Swift.
  • Hahah is that a real problem or...?
  • She's known to be a complete bitch.
  • You don't need to cry here, honey
  • Challenge accepted! Bring me Taylor.
  • Hopefully they will do the same on Eminem's new album SHADYXV.
  • MMLP2 was free when it came out and I got it. Maybe we get SHADYXV also for free but 99 cents is very good price to pay XD
  • I'd buy that for a dollar! (And I did).
  • winnar
  • Seems no.
  • DRM?
  • Nope, just an ordinary MP3.
  • I'll pass on it.
  • What a waste of a dollar...
  • What would you recommend?
  • Black Veil Brides' new album is at the same price. Check them out.
  • I was just playing the new Black Veil Brides release the other day. Good production. It has its moments.
  • The questions not for you silly... Really?
  • LIVE - The Turn. It just came out yesterday. Their first album in eight years and best since 1999. It's my #3 out of all of theirs. I'm so glad they brought on the new singer.
  • I'm a have to listen the new live then.
  • You're a waste of a dollar!
  • No need to cry here
  • I was considering checking it out to see if it's any good, but not included w/ Xbox Music Pass! So thanks, but no thanks.
  • If you like Swift, it sounds pretty good so far.
  • I do like a few of her songs, but not enough to necessarily consider myself a "fan."
  • I consider it a worthwhile purchase to have an MP3 to mess with to make a ringtone out of "shake it off."
  • If you like pop, it's her best work to date and it's better than every single mainstream pop album out there. You should give it a try
  • I will pass on this, buying the Deluxe version on CD, and supporting the CD sales for such a great artist.  
  • A date part of the deal?
  • Got it
  • I'm not a fan at all, but just had a look to see if it's available in Australia, it's listed as $12.49 here. Another US only thing?
  • It's mentioned in the article; US only.    
  • It should be mentioned in the title so we don't have to waste time clicking on and then reading the article just to find out it doesn't apply (although in this case, I'm sure most of us just came here to bag Taylor Swift :P)
  • I'm disappointed it's not on sale outside the US, especially considering it's not available on Xbox Music pass yet. Hard to justify paying my monthly fee again for one album
  • I am sad this is only available in US. In the previous week V from Maroon 5 was in sale too and I love this album!
  • I didn't get V because I already own it on iTunes and physical. It's really good but not their best.
  • I read on some site she wanted to beat Britney's first week sales record..
  • WTF
    US only.
    BS
  • Bs player ;)
  • She should have stuck to her country roots. Album isn't really that great. One or 2 good songs.
  • Plus, guys, if we support this, we'll get MORE albums as part of the deals app. If noone actually USES it, this goes the way of Zune.
  • +1030
  • Absolutely. Bought 4 albums today, Iggy's album was only 1.99$. Great day if you like music
  • Too expensive!
  • No, i am waiting for Unearth new album. \m/
  • Glad I'm not the only heavy music fan here. I'm hoping for Best Buy or Wal-Mart to get the new Fit for a King myself.
  • I haven't listened to them in years, since my high school days 8 years ago. This lying world is hands down the best song to head bang to.
  • I bought it earlier. Amazing deal!
  • How do I buy it?  Do I buy it through the WP8.1 app?  After I buy it, do I truly own it or can I only play it using Xbox Music?
  • Yeah, it's yours. You do what you want with it after you buy it
  • So you can download it to a PC? How? Also, what is the bitrate? 
  • Yes, you can! I don't know about the bit rate, though.
  • Usually XBM bitrate ranges from 256kbps to 320kbps. I have personally found that their bitrate is higher than most of Amazon's music(XBM has more 320s vs 256s), but less than 7Digital.
  • Thanks guys! 
  • Nope thank you. I'd rather eat rocks than this.
  • Such a deal that this might be my first Xbox Music purchase since I had my Zune.
  • You should buy it. It's a great album
  • Purchased!
  • Are Xbox Music downloads DRM protected?
  • Not if you buy 'em.
  • *BARF* I'm glad they put up a Metal category this time. Picked up Ghost, Slayer, Dio, Sepultura, Megadeth, Pantera, Black Sabbath and Testament. Yeaaaa boiiiiii!
  • As much as I don't like Taylor Swift, I definitely prefer it over metal.
  • To each their own. I really hate when people criticize others' choice in music because in the end it's all subject to opinion.
  • To each their own. I really hate when people criticise other's article comments, because in the end it's all subject to opinion.
  • I also hate when people try to be witty for no particular reason, because if you'd notice, my comment was not criticizing anyone.
  • I also hate when people are defensive for no particular reason, because if you'd notice, his comment was not criticising anyone but you were criticising him for having an opinion.
  • Now your talking \,,/
  • Just change your region to US and a valid US postal code and phone number for your credit card details
  • I love swift
  • WOW, US only? So I just have to go to ThePirateBay and... not download this crap. I better buy the new album from Emigrate or something else.
  • Any walk around the whole US only thing? Tried turning off location, changed country... Nothing
  • why buy when you can free download from Music+ :))))
  • No thanks
  • Does anyone see how to purchase music using your Microsoft account gift card balance??? Only worked on windows 8.1 app, not phone app...
  • US only... And that right there is why iTunes is still bigger. Add more global support oh and actually advertise the service. $10 a month is killer for unlimited downloads :)
  • OMG! Best.Album.Ever! Actually, I have no clue. Don't really like most of her music. I own one of her songs though. But it's definitely a good price. I bought Tuskegee for this price from Amazon a whiles back. Happy that you can get a recently released album on XBM for this price. Keep it up Microsoft!
  • Only thing I want to know is what headphones are those?
  • Those are the BeoPlay H6 by Bang and Olufsen. They have a very natural reproduction of sound compared to other high-end headphones.
  • I'm a hard rock kind of guy, but got to say, I like Taylor Swift (bash away), so yeah, just finished downloading it for $.99 while flipping itunes the bird for its' price of the same album.
  • She was brilliant on the Graham Norton show here in the UK. She ably held her own against the comedy legend that is John Cleese (Fawlty Towers/Monty Python etc).
    Beautiful, v.funny...& judging by peoples reaction this album, very good on the music front too.
  • LOL, pass both on paying for digital music and Taylor Swift.
  • Totally getting this.
  • I skimmed through the music and a lot of it sounds similar to the previous track. Red was pushing it, but this is going too mainstream and there isn't a single song that seems to have acoustics to it. Gimme old taylor swift and I will pay 10x as much.
  • Agreed!
  • Glad I'm not in America otherwise I might end up buying things that I feel I would hate simply because its such a good deal, sorry Taylor, but I'm in the UK where your album is more than 99c
  • Microsoft should advertise stuff like this to little girls in order to get their parents to buy them a modestly priced Lumia rather than a £649 mid range iPhone, might get them some new clientele
  • Bought it this morning. It's a great album, doesn't sound like her previous ones, more in the EDM style of pop. I was going to buy it on CD and then saw this app when going in to the Windows Phone store. :) Also got the new Rise Against and Black Veil Bride albums for $2 each, both very good as well!
  • The hard rock/metal deals this week are amazing. I picked up Operation: Mindcrime, Hail to the King and The Black Market all for $1.99 each. Great deals. I had already preordered Black Veil Brides IV, though, so I guess I wasted $12. (And BVB IV is only 99¢ btw, not $1.99.)
  •    I'll buy that or a dollar.
  • Love her early stuff. Speak Now is her best album. But this new pop crap sound of hers is for the birds!!
  • How much are those headphones
  • $400
  • Not mad that I can't get this particular album, but Microsoft should really offer these deals in Canada at least. Like honestly.
  • I bought it
  • You'd have to pay me.
  • BLACK VAIL BRIDES IS .99¢
  • Yeah, although it's not as obvious as it's at the bottom of their metal list. Too bad I preordered it on iTunes so I could get Faithless and Heart of Fire earlier. Ugh, I should have waited...
  • I already pay 9.90 euros every month for my music pass. The album, here in Portugal, costs 7.99 and as someone already said, Taylor dislikes people that stream music, so even if the album were 0.99 euros, I wouldn't buy it.
  • This is what all albums should cost, seriously from the very beginning, I can't believe people fell for that dollar per song nonsense, and I partially blame the tech reviewers who were surprisingly lapping it up and encouraging ppl to do the same.
  • What entitled bullshit. Albums are worth way more than 99 cents. If your music is that disposable to you then you clearly listen to shit.
  • Although a lot of this music I wouldn't have bought prior to these deals, I have to agree. If you think albums should universally be 99¢ then you need to stop being such a cheap fuck, and I don't care how much or how little you make. Artists work really hard to put out a record, and they deserve to be paid for that work. That's why I would never pirate a song, especially newer stuff.
  • Amen Kreblon.
  • Awesome, was gonna buy it for the full price but this is even better. Maybe I will still buy it for $12 to support her, she's like my second top played on lastfm. Thanks for the notification guys
  • You still will even if you buy it for 99¢. I'm guessing Microsoft is paying the difference, because there's no way this was the label's idea. My guess is that this is a sort of customer acquisition ploy by Microsoft. If they can easily get people to begin to build a library, then it's much easier to convert them from iTunes.
  • Well it's solidified my use of it. I bought a single on Xbox music once before this and again I'm experiencing how the music automatically downloads onto all my devices so I can just enjoy the music, rather than faffing with iTunes and file explorers. I imagine this is the same experience Apple users get with iTunes..
  • Dokken & Queensryche!!! Frak yeah now we're talking!
  • I got so excited when I saw Operation: Mindcrime for two bucks. That made my week.
  • Operation mindcrime is an awesome album
  • I have like no need to even listen, don't know what it is...it's like being hungry then you enter a room with free donuts, you see them but you have no interest in even trying one cause you don't know which nasty bastard already touched them.
  • What is that Headphone ?
  • The headphones say B&O on them. So with a quick Bing search it seems like they are a pair of B&O H6 headphones. Also it seems B&O stands for Bang & Olufsen.
  • Thanks
  • Thanks but no, thanks.
    1. Her type of pop is not my cup of tea.
    2. I am not into people who dislikes streaming; she might be young, but has a very backward mentality.
  • For 99 cents why not? Her music isn't what I'm usually into, but I saw her perform on TV once and she's clearly talented. Was also able to get Dream Theater- Images and Words for $1.99. The new Opeth album is a fucking steal at $1.99 too. Everyone should buy that.
  • Thanxs for the Dream Theater heads up. I may be getting the Cowbows from Hell by Pantera ($1.99 as well) or one of the Slayer albums on deal. Too bad the XBM app is so shitty it's only good for shopping music. The bastard restarted my device (1520) twice in less than half an hour.
  • Not working for me,will only let me buy each track at $2.99 each
  • Lol who? .....
    How is this news?
  • Because it's an insanely good deal? This album literally shipped yesterday (I believe) and it's marked down by 90% on Xbox Music. I'd say that's newsworthy.
  • I am giving away shit for free. It's usually $20, so do not miss this insanely deal!
  • Nobody is forcing you to comment on the fact that what is likely the biggest album of the year is available with a 90% discount at launch on Xbox Music as a promotion for the service. But it IS news and appropriate for this site, and many of us DO like the music.
  • And still 99c too expensive for what it is, but i'm sure any 12 year old girls using Windows Phone (probably none) will love it.  
  • I'd rather die.
  • This is why I love USA!
  • Because of awful pop music?
  • Because of discounts and pop tarts!
  • Picked it up for 0.99 super early this morning!
  • Dad buys it = daughter happy.
  • Really?! An article about Taylor Swift? Who do you think your readers are?
  • Actually this is an article about Xbox Music. Xbox is a Microsoft product. This is Windows Central. The album is new. It is the fastest selling album of 2014. It's on sale for 99 cents. This is news worthy.
  • Exactly. Everyone's a critic.
  • I bought it. I also bought Black Veil Brides new one. Good deals.
  • I noticed something cool that I didn't know. When I bought and downloaded the Taylor Swift album on my Windows Phone, that also made it available for streaming on the website when I go to my "Collection" (not if I select it under the artist section)! That's pretty neat.
  • Last weeks 99cent album was so much better! Where was that article?
  • Nice, they let you but it, but I cant download it Fu$k Microsoft. I called support got the runaround and one support tech laughing at me. I am done with them. Next phone is android
  • Yeah I heard Android never has any technical problems. ;) What is prohibiting you from downloading? Did the purchase go through correctly?
  • It shows I own the album. I can listen to 30 seconds only. It says it is in my collection.    The problem with Microsoft tech guy laughing at me is just too much for me. I can't seem to complain to anyone. That is why I am leaving at the end of my contract. I also like my wifes phone. Yes there are certian things I will miss. The voice texting on andriod does not seem to work. In Windows you get a text, it reads it to you and you can reply. Have not found a way to do that in Andriod yet.
  • This is obviously so much better than forcing a download of the album (but it was free!) like Apple. I personally like this album. Almost all her previous albums had instances of this potential sound, and my understanding is this is her attempt to settle into the most reasonable genre. To be honest, country music is filled with lots of pop wanna bes, so it is actually refreshing to hear her admit this is the most honest direction for her.
  • Nope
  • Seeing how she's really popular, share this deal and maybe it'll give Xbox Music greater recognition
  • I'd rather buy a single from Calvin Harris's album...
  • Don't like Calvin Harris as much as I used to. Flashback, I'm Not Alone, Feel So Close are far better than recent tracks like CUBA and Drinking From the Bottle.
  • Wow...so many critics. No one cares what you like or what I like. This girl has fans...lots of them and I'm sure that snide remarks aren't going to deter them.
  • I bought that album and it is amazing. Even doe these people are puppets. The album is really on of her best work yet. It's only .99¢ and a real steal so cop it while you can.
  • i am not too cool for school, i like the album - good deal
  • To me this Xbox Music is not for me and for those in some continents. In Africa, a lot of people are ready to buy these services including Xbox Videos but unfortunately Microsoft only cares about the US. iTunes works here and these are little incentives that create a mindshare and impression in consumers which adds to increased market share and growth for the Windows (Phone) platform as a whole. The awareness for Windows (Phone) is there but the services are either lackluster or incomplete or simply tied to regions which gives mixed experience compared to other platforms.
  • Paaaaaasss
  • Would buy but USA only, shame!
  • USA only.......good one MS.
  • 9,99€ wtf
  • Why would I buy when apps like music+ offer all this for free??? :-))
  • Nice headphones. I'd like a review of them on the 8x and 930, for comparison
  • I'd buy it, but too bad I can't because I don't live in US. My Xbox Music app just shows music from my phone and nothing else.
  • Yep, same here in India.
  • Saw your ears off with a rusty cheese knife instead.
  • I saw Taylor Swift on the Graham Norton show the other day. She is so hot, daayum! I actually like her new song too. Fuck me right? Unfortunately I'm not a US citizen or else I would buy her new album.
  • saw lumia 730 ad here in india and it was good.
  • Why MS you are us only minded!! There people in other pata of the world!! We are not aliens!
  • Sweet headphones
  • US only, always knew God was British.....   Well it kept me amused reading the comments
  • EWWW!
    zat ith tho groth! tay tay, don't get any clother to my thon! go away!
  • Βωωωβ ωηξ ,ξωωηξβω,βξ .ββ ,β βωβω , ωβω ω , ωωβξωωβ. Ηξηξξ ω ωω ω, ω,η ,ωωβωη
  • ω <--- it looks like a butt, or maybe some saggy boobs
  • Anyone trying to purchase this album and receive error code 80151200 from the wallet?
  • Wallet is not even coming up as an option for me
  • Yeah - I get an error both on my Icon and Windows 8.1 Music Metro app - even when selecting different cards. Not a good look to have some exclusive deal, then have a broken store.
  • I received a different error code. Contacted support and they said that they are working on a fix (at about 9am EST). It is not 5pm and I still can not buy it. I've got 99 pennies and I can't spend one!!!
  • Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H6...........headphones that is:)
  • Not 99c on xbox music Australia, try $12.49, no thanks, cheaper on iTunes here.
  • Is it US only? In Denmark it cost 19.99,-
  • I'd set myself on fire before ever giving this chick one cent.
  • Good god, did you know you're a crazy person? You've been commenting the same vitriol here for a day. If we told you your taste in music is exquisite, will you stfu?
  • Bought it yesterday .... ^_^
  • Bought it for my teenage daughter
  • I am having trouble downloading it. I installed the MS deal app and am able to click the Buy It Now $0.99 button, but, nothing happens. Amy thoughts? Same thing with my spouse's phone too.
  • MS could do us a favour by making the service available elsewhere outside the US too!
  • NO MORE COUNTRY!!!! :(:(:(:(:(
  • Not my cup of tea but bought it anyway for my wife and daughter. Had to use my US dummy account though. Hope they bring these deals to the UK at some point soon.
  • Whistles... Don't ask.
  • tôi không thích xbox music và xbox video
  • I cant find it anywhere to buy it. Not even the Music Deals...... WTH?
  • I got the alert yesterday morning from the Music Deals app and purchased the album immediately. This is actually my first purchase of Taylor Swift music, but my younger brother (30 years old) has all her CD's, including her Christmas album and some Wal-Mart exclusives.
  • There's no buy-now button. Why can't this be easy?
  • F...uck you pay ME ! ( song reference)
  • This is a joke. I don't even like the album, but am trying to get it to stream in the car. I am absolutely appalled that MS is making this so difficult. First it was an error code, then it said it wasn't able to connect to the Store and now it says it isn't available in my region! I am in the USA and I have reset my phone several times to try an accomplish what should be a SIMPLE task of handing money over to MS. I have never said this before, but APPLE must be different than this! What a joke.
  • Hmm.  I saw this album in the music deals app last night and it said something like 5 days left.  Now it seems to be gone.  Went into the Xbox music app and searched, found it, tried to buy it but it is not available.  I'm in the US.  Was it pulled already?  In my opinion just another reason not to buy music at all.
  • I am in the same boat. I would like to buy it if they will let me....
  • US only?!  Big fail MS.
  • Love the way these Xbox Music deals block other music loving nations from partaking.
  • Very odd though since the 1989 album was available on Xbox Music pass last week in Canada when I downloaded it and now it has been revoked. Hopefully it comes back.
  • Is there a way to use the music deal app outside the us ? I guess I need to add a payment method to the US account. Somebody tried it ?
  • Just put in a US address and post code in your payment information... It works ;)
  • Buying music in the music app is very awkward..... They really need to streamline it.
  • It doesn't work for me, I don't even see a price tag, like I'm not allowed to buy, though I don't have a music pass or anything...
  • Don't need a music pass to buy... Having the music pass removes the price tag... Your account may just need some more setting up?
  • I've looked at all the settings, I don't see what could have removed the price tag, there's no buy button or cart to click on, I'm curious as to why I can't buy that album.
  • There's a problem right now, I think. Even having paid for it, I cant stream some of the songs. God, xbox music is horrid
  • Scratch that, any of the songs but one. ONE. Wtf
  • I bought it earlier this morning and yeah, around an hour ago I was streaming it on my desktop and then suddenly going from one track to the next it says that there is a copyright request to make it unavailable.. At least I downloaded it on my phone and tablet, but that is really strange.
  • I purchased/downloaded it to my phone via the $.99 purchase offer on the Music app. I had access to all 13 songs for several days but yesterday something changed. I now seem to own only half of the songs and the others are not on my phone anymore. Really? Can only preview the missing tracks now, too. Creepy bait and switch, MS.
  • Um... No.
  • Yah, it disappeared and they changed the 0.99 deal to something else, even through it says tthat this deal will be around for 6 days!!!
  • Of course ... the day *after* I bought it full price on Xbox Music ... thanks Microsoft!!
  • Looks like I'm too late. It's cool. I can shake this one off.
  • Doesn't work, tried on tablet, phone, pc and Xbox One ... either no option to buy or an error if I try.  Chatted with MS Support, they couldn't get it to work either.  The agent suspected the distributor changed something.
  • Why only the US ? AREN'T WE SO OVER THIS BULLSHIT REGION ONLY CRAP....isn't Xbox music/music whatever the name is app global or what ? Same deals for all please, no matter where you are in the world ......
  • I have no idea who she is, but really is WP news so lacking and slow that this kind of stuff needs featured here? I don't mind the additional Windows news on top of WP, but when there's a sale of an album does that really need to show up here?
  • It's no longer officially (and hasn't really been for a long time) just about Windows Phone, but everything Windows. And it is somewhat of a big deal as no one else is doing such a big discount. Can you point to anyone doing a discount on an album for more than 90%? I feel there's more to the story than meets the eye, especially as it's seemingly inaccessible to play on Xbox Music now.
  • It's funny to read all the haters and their comments about TS relative musical abilities. I'm a composer of "serious" music, and have been for nearly 40 years, and her music makes me smile. Her attitude about haters makes me want to adopt her! Any fool out there who thinks writing a top ten song is easy, has no clue what they are talking about. TS has a talent that most musicians wish they had... She has a gift for writing hit music. There is no good or bad music... Only music you like and music you don't like. I think it's cute when amateurs try to claim otherwise.
  • IT'S NOT WORKING 
  • Who is he
  • Would love to see the details of this deal.  How much she get's for each new subscriber, how much she get's per album sold.  This could be great for both of them.  I'm not a fan, and wouldn't want her album if I got paid to download it, seriously, but I'm assuming she has young fans, and MSFT needs them on the platform.
  • Thanks....N.O.P.E
  • Oh my god what a deal
  • So does anyone else have a problem when trying to buy it? No icon to buy it and cant stream it because of rights?
  • Can't stand her "music".
  • anyone else in the USA having problems buying it?  I'm getting a message that says "This album is unavailable for listening at the request of the copyright holder. We’re doing our best to make it available to you" Did the deal get pulled already?    
  • Having the same error issue...
  • It has been reset to 13.99 =(
  • yeah that did not even last 3 of the reported 7 days.
