Apple passes Wal-Mart, becomes biggest music retailer in the US

Just one month after passing Best Buy to become the number two music retailer in the US, Apple has now overtaken Wal-Mart to become the number one music retailer.

In January the iTunes store claimed 19 percent of sales, Wal-Mart had 15 percent (online and brick-and-mortar combined), third place went to Best Buy with 13 percent.

Its just one month worth of data so we’ll see six months from now how things stack up. Will iTunes stay on top? Will Amazon’s DRM-free MP3 store break into the top three? Stay tuned…
