Spotify subscriber count now at 30 million as CEO sights Cuba

Apple Music may be blowing up big with 11 million paid subscribers, but Spotify still has more. At this point in the music industry’s history, way more. Instead of the 20 million we’ve kept citing for a few good whiles, CEO Daniel Ek tweeted out the Sweden-based music streaming service’s latest milestone. It also comes with a little celebration of President Obama’s visit to Cuba.

Spotify is looking to grow faster with continued support of Windows Phone and moving its more diversified content to servers from its good buddy, Google. Sorting out the music licensing issues it has with labels and artists will take a bit more work, though.

Fun fact: Calvin Coolidge was the last sitting president to visit Cuba back in 1928.
