It's official: Spotify is leading the streaming war. The company announced that they have officially hit 40 million paid subscribers after a recent 10 million person increase over the last five months. Of course, this is a huge lead over Apple, who has just reached 17 million subscribers with only four million over the last few months.

The news comes right when Tidal has announced that it is further in financial trouble, while Amazon and Pandora are looking to jump into the streaming world with affordable services soon.
