/// Spotify May Have 70,000 Paid Subscribers a Week After U.S. Launch
All that publicity — and all those free invitations — looks to have worked for Spotify: Billboard editor Bill Werde says his sources estimate that the music service has 70,000 paid subscribers just a week after launch . For context: The service says it has 1.6 million subscribers after two years of operation in Europe. If American users follow the European pattern, they will have overwhelmingly signed on for the service’s $10-a-month option.
