From May, 2018. Not exactly current, but the scale and ranking is useful, IMO

===========================================================

Streaming owns the music industry, and now that the format has established itself as the current savior and future of the business,
many competitors in the space
are focused on signing up as many users as possible. Profitability is tough to come by, but the more paying customers
(or at least the more people willing to listen to ads), the better, and these companies have been able to collect more listeners than
all the other options out there.

Here are the 10 most popular streaming music services in the world, based on the number of users they all have.
This post will be updated as frequently as is possible when new figures are confirmed.

YouTube - 1.5 billion

YouTube is far and away the most popular option in the world ... { snip, go to link}

I am also on Sound Cloud. one of 175 million .

True, of the 175M, its mostly freeby listeners, or folks who recorded 10 tracks, give or take.

I wouldn't have guessed that 175M figure, my guess is 5 or 10 million.

Just the same, thats a lot of listeners.

I also think its +90% hip hoppers, rappers, DJ's. My take is from being on it for 2 years and pushing
around music.

SC is a German co. What I like is that it seems Euro centric.

While we have a great population
here in the US, there is a large % of Euro listeners and also Asia.

I am going by my stats in making these general statements.

The SC site is good to work with. I suspect there is a certain amount
of bogus accounts fooling around on the site. it can be ignored and
avoided, IMO.
