Apple Music To Overtake Spotify In The United States in 2018

According to a new report by the Wall Street Journal, Apple Music is closing in on the streaming giant Spotify in the United States.

While Apple Music launched in June 2015 and has been adding subscribers in the United States at a monthly growth rate of 5%, Spotify has been falling behind with just 2% monthly growth. Based on sources in the music business familiar with both services, Apple is expected to overtake Spotify in the US market this summer.

Meanwhile, Spotify currently has twice as many paid subscribers as Apple Music globally. Last month, Spotify confirmed they have about 70 million paid subscribers as Apple Music only has 36 million.
