Spotify skyrockets to 40 million paid subscribers, more than doubling Apple Music

Spotify’s subscriber base has grown a lot in just the last six months.

On Wednesday, Spotify CEO Daniel Ek tweeted that “40 is the new 30,” seemingly in reference to the millions of people who now pay monthly to listen to his streaming service ad-free. Previously, Spotify reported 30 million subscribers in March, meaning that the service has racked up about 10 million new subscribers in half a year.
