SHOCKINGLY, OF THE 26% OF HOUSEHOLDS THAT PAY FOR MUSIC…MOST OF THEM USE PRIME MUSIC

Yep. We know what you’re thinking. We got way too high and wrote this article. But we didn’t. New research from Parks Associates shows that, of the 66% of U.S. broadband households that use a licensed service to stream music, 40% are going free/ad-supported, and 26% pay. Of those 26%, Amazon Prime Music is in first place (10%), Pandora One is in second (6%), and Spotify Premium comes in third (at 4%).

According to the study, our own hometown hero (?) Amazon has a big leg up in the streaming wars. Parks Associates isn’t some two-bit research firm, either. It is an internationally recognized market research and consulting company specializing in emerging consumer technology products and services, having served multiple Fortune 500 companies. So what could be the cause of this almost unbelievable surprise? From an EDM perspective, it’s clear from Prime Music’s top dance albums that their bread-and-butter is in mainstream EDM.
