Apple Music Could Overtake Spotify This Year


Best Buy recently announced that the company plans to stop selling CDs, because nowadays streaming is all the rage when it comes to music.

In the streaming world it seems that the two top services are Spotify and Apple Music. Spotify has been in the game a little bit longer, but it looks like Apple Music is closing in on their subscriber count.

According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, Apple Music has been adding subscribers at a more rapid pace than Spotify. The monthly growth of Apple Music’s subscriber base is 5% compared to Spotify’s 2% according to people in the industry with knowledge of the two services.

With that being said, if this pace continues then Apple Music will overtake Spotify’s subscriber count by this summer.

Both services have their pros and cons, and we want to know which one are you using? Sound off in the comments below.
