Music Streaming: Which Service is On Top in 2017?

Music is always changing — the way it’s created, distributed and enjoyed advancing with the connected landscape of technology. Since the first music streaming platform was introduced in the late 1990s, how we consume music has become more centralized to web-based services.

Before Spotify, iHeartRadio, and Pandora, there was Internet Underground Music Archive (IUMA), Last.fm and Napster. While the services and sites have been tweaked and updated over the years, the main goal has always been the same: to give people access to on-demand music. In 2016, the United States alone saw 431.7 billion music streams, up nearly 40% from the previous year. 51% of all U.S. music revenue in 2016 was also attributed to online music streaming, racking up $2.48 billion over the year.

Americans are consuming more music than ever before. Of course, as music streaming continues to rise in popularity, traditional album sales (even digital album sales) continue to plummet.

Why Streaming Is “Too Big to Fail”

The music industry has always had a love-hate relationship with music streaming services. On one hand, these platforms make music incredibly accessible and place artists’ music in front of more ears. On the other hand, streaming services are notorious for providing a minimal payout to the musicians themselves.

No matter your personal or professional stance on the debate, music industry and streaming service executives have realized that they need to work together to survive. Recent lengthy negotiations between Spotify and Universal Music Group led to a multi-year licensing deal to benefit everyone:

“This partnership is built on a mutual love of music, creating value for artists and delivering for fans…We know that not every album by every artist should be released the same way, and we’ve worked hard with UMG to develop a new, flexible release policy. Starting today, Universal artists can choose to release new albums on premium only for two weeks, offering subscribers an earlier chance to explore the complete creative work, while the singles are available across Spotify for all our listeners to enjoy.”

 

– Daniel Ek, Chairman and CEO of Spotify

The contract has some obvious compromises, like Universal agreeing to lower royalty rates and Spotify allowing Universal to exclude free users from listening to new releases for up to two weeks. These less-than-perfect negotiations show us just how co-dependent the relationship between labels and streaming services has become.

Music Streaming: Today’s Top Services

Last year, Spotify was the reigning leader of streaming services, experiencing the fastest subscriber growth in the entirety of its 7 years in business in the last half of 2015 alone. While the site was worth more than half of the global recorded music industry at the time, industry leaders can quickly change.

Pandora

It’s easy to see how quickly the streaming industry changes from year to year, and even from month to month. Just last year, Spotify was arguably the most popular, fastest growing streaming service in use. In comparison to this knowledge, the chart below shows the percentage of Americans aged 12+ who listened to the following music streaming services in the past month (February 2017).

As you can see, Pandora has a visible lead at 32%, with Spotify trailing behind at 18% of Americans aged 12+ listening in. Key Pandora statistics for 2017 include:

  • 4.39 million subscribers
  • 81 million monthly listeners
  • $1.55 – $1.7 billion projected revenue
  • 18 – 24 years old largest age group of users

Learn how to record music from Pandora.

Spotify

Spotify has been through some major ups and downs over the past couple of years. While the number of listeners Spotify sees each month is impressive, the company reported an operating loss of 184.5 million euros ($195.5 million) just 2 years ago. Overall, Spotify is seeing growth and change internationally; the company is expanding efforts and attempting to shift their focus to supporting artists, rather than their own profitability.

The chart above shows the number of paid subscribers that Spotify has had, from 2010 to 2017. Other key Spotify statistics for 2017 include:

  • 50 million subscribers
  • 100 million listeners
  • 20,000 songs added per day
  • 60 countries in service and counting

Learn how to record music from Spotify.

Apple Music

By far the newest to the game, Apple Music has seen relatively consistent growth since launching 2 years ago. While experts banking on Apple’s market share and notoriety in hardware/software speculated that it would surpass Spotify’s number of listeners, Spotify has so far kept Apple Music at an arm’s length away.

This chart shows the steady gap between Apple Music and Spotify subscribers from 2015 to today. As each service releases information on new milestones, we’re curious to see how things look in another 6 months. Key Apple Music statistics for 2017 include:

  • 20+ million subscribers
  • 30% growth in subscribers in the past year
  • $7 billion in revenue in 2016

Rock Hall of Fame 2017: Download Music From the Greats

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame celebrates the most influential music artists, groups, and singer-songwriters in the industry’s history. With so much excellence in music over the decades, they are pumping out a fresh new round of inductees every single year.

This year was no different — the Hall of Fame honored several incredible musicians and bands that have changed the course of music itself over time. Check out some of the best music from the 2017 Rock Hall of Fame Inductees here — you can use Replay Music to record all of your favorite songs from Spotify!

Electric Light Orchestra (ELO)

“Electric Light Orchestra, or more popularly known as ELO, were formed in Birmingham England in 1970 when Jeff Lynne and Roy Wood, members of The Move, had the vision to start a new project that would create modern rock and pop songs with classical overtones.” – Rock Hall of Fame

Joan Baez

“If you’ve seen Joan Baez live you’ll know the simmering charismatic presence that draws you into her performance. It’s a powerful force that saw her cross over from her folk roots into the mainstream, achieving gold albums in the 70’s and also provided a platform for her lifetime’s work, championing civil rights and human rights, highlighting the downtrodden, standing up against discrimination and reminding us it’s not always only rock ‘n roll.” – Rock Hall of Fame

Journey

“Call it what you will – Arena Rock, Stadium Rock, Concert Rock – the music of Journey defined the big rock and roll sound of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Formed in San Francisco in 1973, the group was initially a combination of ex-Santana members Neal Schon and Gregg Rolie, and ex- Frumious Bandersnatch members.” – Rock Hall of Fame

Pearl Jam

“When they released their debut album, Ten, in August, 1991, Pearl Jam were a band of young unknowns to anyone not from Seattle, Washington. At home, Pearl Jam were practically a supergroup – founded in 1990 at a crossroads of classic rock, Seventies heavy metal and hardcore punk, just as that city’s underground scene was about to go worldwide.” – Rock Hall of Fame

Tupac Shakur

“Beyond his popularity, Tupac Shakur is one of the most complex figures to emerge from hip-hop – really, to emerge from any art form.His naked emotion and fearless personal revelation were a direct influence on MCs from Eminem to Kendrick Lamar.” – Rock Hall of Fame

YES

“Yes is the most enduring, ambitious and virtuosic progressive band in rock history. By fusing the cinematic soundscapes of King Crimson with the hard rock edge of The Who and the soaring harmonies and melodies of Simon and Garfunkel, they took progressive rock from a small audience of aficionados to radio airwaves and football stadiums all over America.” – Rock Hall of Fame

Nile Rodgers

“Nile Rodgers is one of those rare musical talents that can do almost anything. He began his journey as a session musician in his hometown, New York City – playing with the Sesame Street traveling band, and then as a house band member at the Apollo. In 1977 Rodgers formed the funk/disco/soul band CHIC along with bass player Bernard Edwards.“ – Rock Hall of Fame

Remember — you can use Replay Music for PC to record music from all of these artists directly from Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and other amazing online music streaming sources!
