Eminem is the most played artist on the world’s biggest music streaming service Spotify, the Swedish company said Wednesday, announcing it had reached ten million premium users.
Spotify launched in 2008 and now has 40 million active users in 56 countries, three quarters of whom use the free service rather than the paid-for subscription.
That compares to the 24 million active users, including around six million premium customers, the company reported in April 2013.
Spotify’s catalogue is one of the widest available on streaming services, but Eminem did not have to face the stiff competition of The Beatles, who were still not available in the Swedish company’s offer.
