Apple catching up to Spotify

In the race between the top music streaming services, Spotify’s lead is disappearing. The Financial Times reports that music executives expect Apple Music to match Spotify’s subscribers in the U.S. by next month. Digital Music News reports Apple may already be ahead of Spotify. At this time last year, Spotify subscribers in the U.S. outnumbered those subscribing to Apple by about 4 million. Apple’s faster growth rate can be attributed to it pushing its services on users of its devices, according to the FT.
