Remember back a few years ago when many in the music industry thought that we’d never get over the 100 million total paid streaming subscriber benchmark? Remember when they predicted that Spotify had plateaued at 30 million? Remember when they opined that streaming revenue would never make up for physical product and downloads? All those predictions are looking pretty silly as we sit here in mid-2017, especially since the new figures from Spotify indicate that the company has blown past the 60 million paid subscriber mark all by itself.
