You’ll find this week’s On the Record column from The Ticket here. “YouTube, which turned 12 on St Valentine’s Day, may argue that it’s not a music streaming service per se, but a huge number of its billion users a month are clearly on the site in search of a particular tune or track. That’s 10 times more users than what Spotify were reporting in 2016, with Apple Music users coming in at 20 million by comparison.”
