  • Major music distributor says Apple Music now has more US paying subscribers than Spotify

According to sources from Digital Music News, Apple Music streaming service now has more than 20 million paying users in the States than Spotify. Apparently, Spotify also has over 20 million paying subscribers, however, its total isn't as high as that of Apple Music."Both Apple Music and Spotify have more than 20 million subscribers in America, with Apple now a hair ahead", the Digital Music News report notes.

The report is based on information provided by an anonymous "major distributor".

While the gap between the two leaders is now very small, it is expected to widen over the coming months as Apple is enjoying explosive growth in the US. At that rate, it was inevitable that Apple Music would take the lead eventually. As more HomePods and iPhones are sold, more customers will become exposed to the tech giant's streaming service. The data was specifically referring to paid users as well, so no one still on either Apple or Spotify's free trial was included.
