MacDailyNews Take: If he’s really “ok” with Apple Music, why did Ek quickly delete his tweet?”
Have conviction or STFU.
Apple Music launches in over 100 countries on June 30th. Over 100 countries. Spotify is currently only in 56 countries.
If just 10% of Apple 800 million iTunes users with credit cards on file sign up, Apple Music will instantly be over 5X larger than Spotify (15 million paying customers currently, some portion of whom will be leaving Spotify for Apple Music when the three month trial period automatically segues to paying accounts*).
For Spotify, Danny, it’s all downhill from here. Fast.
Glad to see that you’re “ok” with that.
Sleep tight, Danny boy!
