2. if purchasing the entire album, buy each track individually so they count as a digital song sale as well as an album sale. do not click complete my album.
3. remember to delete the songs from your apple music library after purchasing so your streams will count. you should always see a + sign instead of cloud when you're streaming. ten individual tracks purchased = one album purchased.
