The big question, though, remains whether or not Apple Music will ever be able to eclipse Spotify.

Spotify is encouraging users to "use your musical prowess to do good" and correct its music metadata to help artists connect with more fans, and help other people discover new music by fuelling its personalisation engines.

Amazon Music Unlimited has 16 million paying subscribers, and Pandora Media Inc has 5.48 million total subscribers. "There's a huge gap there and we both have to grow by a significant amount in order to get to the numbers that we should be at".

South Africans already have a wide choice of streaming options, from Google Play Music to Apple Music, and Simfy Africa to Deezer.

Apple, Spotify, Google and other services charge $9.99 a month for music. Apple's senior vice president of internet software and services, Eddy Cue, passed along the latest stats at the annual SXSW in Austin, Texas.

Apple itself seems to be stumbling on its first moves into the smart-speaker space, with its new HomePod suffering from a late release schedule that missed the holiday rush, as well as from lackluster sales performance ever since its release on February 9.
