LOS ANGELES

The answer to the trivia question will be: “Monkey Drums [Goskel Vancin Remix] by Chase Buch.” That’s the 25- billionth song purchased on iTunes.

Apple announced the sales milestone in a news release Wednesday.

The company says Phillip Lupke of Germany purchased and downloaded Buch’s song and will receive an iTunes gift card worth about $13,500.

It took the Cupertino, Calif., company almost 10 years to reach the milestone.

Customers download an average of 15,000 songs a minute from the iTunes music store, which was launched in April 2003.

The digital retailer’s catalog is 26 million songs deep.
