Spotify has been on the up and up the past few months. After continually being in talks of purchasing Soundcloud the heavy weight of the streaming world took a step back to focus on internal concerns instead. This has benefited them endlessly as they continue to grow and Soundcloud continues to bomb. In fact Spotify wisely even took a step back from their IPO. This was a worry in the industry that a streaming service going public could in fact tank the company. So many social media and tech services have gone public and undercut their initial offerings – making for an explosive stock price on the first day, followed by a nuclear fallout level crash after a week or so. Spotify reigned themselves in and continue to corner the market on music streams.
