The anonymous report revealed that both Spotify and Apple Music enjoy around 20 millions paying listeners in the United States, with Apple Music reportedly in the lead.

Apple Music has surpassed Spotify in total number of paid USA subscribers, according to a report from Digital Music News.

The secret source says both Apple Music and Spotify now have more than 20 million subscribers across the country, but exact numbers are vague to protect confidentiality. Spotify's numbers didn't come close to matching that of Apple Music - 130 million streams compared to 170 million in that critical first day of Scorpion's release. Spotify falls into the same bracket, but has now dropped into second place when it comes to popularity.

The charges also involved unnecessary prescription drugs and compounded medications. Some cases are reported to be related to the nation's opioid epidemic.

Not only that, Apple Music seems to have a stronger growth rate in the United States, which could mean even more users will sign up in the near future. In other markets like Canada and the U.K., Apple is also making faster strides with its subscription growth rate. Spotify has over 70 million subscribers globally and about 160 million total users.

Apple Music is ranked at the top in the USA, with a total tally of just over 20 million subscribers as per the report. There are a number of factors that could've contributed to this, including the fact the album appeared on Apple Music right at midnight while it wasn't available on Spotify until a couple hours later. In March, the platform hit the 38 million paid subscriber milestone, going on to shoot past 40 million subscribers the following month.
