Apple Music Now Has More Subscribers Than Spotify in the U.S.

Apple Music Now Has More Subscribers Than Spotify in the U.S.

As the battle between the top streaming services rages on, Apple Music has reportedly beat Spotify in one of the most important areas. While we don't know exact figures yet, the report confirms Apple Music has indeed taken the lead.

Globally, Spotify remains well ahead, with around 70M paying subscribers against Apple Music's 45M. However, we do know that both companies are now sitting at around 20 million USA subscribers each, with Apple slightly in the lead.

Citing a detailed report from "a US-based, major distributor", Digital Music News claims Apple and Spotify are neck and neck with just over 20 million paid USA subscribers each, with Apple claiming a slight edge for the first time. An anonymous source spilled the unofficial news, which puts Apple Music ahead of its primary competitor, as well as Tidal, Sirius XM, and even more popular music streaming services. Spotify's numbers didn't come close to matching that of Apple Music - 130 million streams compared to 170 million in that critical first day of Scorpion's release. However, considering the company filed to go public in the USA in April, reports that its primary competition there has made up what was once a massive lead won't be welcome news, especially to investors.

However, this comparison also indicates Apple Music is more popular in the United States than Spotify.
