Jul 10, 2018, 01:00
That report now ranks Apple Music as first in the United States, at least among primarily on-demand music streaming services (Sirius XM Satellite Radio, which operates in North America exclusively, has more than 33 million subscribers).
Apple Music had from 21 million to 21.5 million subscribers in the U.S.as of last week, while Spotify had between 22 million to 22.5 million, according to unnamed executive sources cited by theFinancial Times. SiriusXM satellite radio, which does not offer specific songs on demand, beats both Apple and Spotify with 33 million paid U.S. subscribers.

Technology giant Apple has narrowed Spotify's lead in the music streaming market. Apple Music, on the other hand, has only been around for three years. Back then the Apple US-based subscriber growth rate was 5 percent in the country as compared to Spotify's 2 percent.
