Apple Music Reached 1 Billion Songs in March

The power of the Swifties: Taylor’s ‘Midnights’ breaks streaming and vinyl sales records

The streaming service launched in November 2018 and within the first two months had sold more than 1.7 million songs.

Byron St. John and Taylor Swift are now the only artists to sell more music than the service.

Swift’s latest single “We Can’t Stop” is at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart.

In March, Apple Music was named the largest streaming service in the United States, surpassing both Spotify and Netflix.

Apple Music now has more than 60 million paid subscribers, including more than 20 million in the UK.

The streaming service launched in November 2018 and within the first two months had sold more than 1.7 million songs.

In January 2019, the streaming service had become the first audio subscription service to hit 1 billion streams, while iTunes Radio had reached 1.13 billion by September 2019. In February, the streaming service had grown further to more than 1.2 billion streams.

The service is now the third most popular subscription streaming service in the US, behind Netflix and Spotify.

At the end of March 2019, the streaming service had reached more than 1 billion songs being streamed in Apple Music monthly. That is almost double the previous record set in February 2019.

Apple Music reached that milestone at the end of March, meaning it has now streamed more than 1 billion songs in its history.

“It’s crazy. I’ve been in the music industry for a long time and this is the first time I’ve ever seen this many people at one time, and it’s all from Apple Music,” said Mark Cavendish, a longtime artist and music executive.

“It blows my mind.”

Apple Music has since reached 1.2 billion, so it is now the top-ranked paid streaming service in the US market.

Apple is expected to announce its fourth-quarter financial results on Thursday.
