The report claims that Spotify also has in excess of 20 million paying customers in the USA, but Apple is now in the lead.

Three years after making its debut, it is being reported that Apple Music has surpassed Spotify's paid USA subscriber count.

According to an anonymous source, that is said to be a major USA -based distributor, they shared a report with the website detailing the subscriber tallies of several streaming music services, including Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, and Sirius XM. Spotify falls into the same bracket, but has now dropped into second place when it comes to popularity.

However, this comparison also indicates Apple Music is more popular in the USA than Spotify. Though the iPhone X's sales haven't quite lived up to Apple's expectations, the company's success in other parts of their business is undeniable. Apple Music has been lagging behind Spotify for quite some time, but now, it looks like Apple has caught up.

Spotify still has a significantly larger subscriber base worldwide than Apple Music, but it's worth keeping in mind that Spotify is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year.

Apple Music overtaking Spotify is a significant achievement, but it was not at all surprising.

For years, Spotify has been the number one service for paid subscribers who choose to listen to music that they pick themselves.

A defeat in the United States isn't the death knell of the service but it does mean Spotify has to work harder to remain competitive, lest it become the next Pandora.
