Keeping up with music-streaming services that provide all-you-can-eat access to an ever-growing library of the hottest and currently-trending tracks, can be a hard business.

iTunes Radio goes some way to addressing the need for an AYCE music option within the “walled-garden” that is the iTunes Store, but it’s clear that Apple must to do more if it wants to succeed in pulling people away from rivalling services, like Rdio, Deezer and Spotify.

That’s why the company is giving music lovers one last chance to pad out their iTunes libraries with the hottest albums and tracks of the last year at seriously discount prices, right before 2014 ushers in a whole new wave of knockout hits.

First, the company is for a limited-time offering chart-topping albums starting at a crazy $6.99 (each). If that wasn’t enough, for a limited period iTunes customers in the U.S can also bag themselves a whole collection of 70s, 80s, 90s and 00s hits, as well as some classic rock – for just 69 cents (each).

Join us after the break for the highlights.

Chart-Toppping Albums

This exclusive chart-topping discount section sadly can’t be accessed on iTunes, directly. Thankfully, we’ve gone ahead and put all the album highlights in one place. Check them out, below!
