It seems like only yesterday we were hatching ideas for a new music service in a tiny office-cum-apartment with a broken coffee machine, and the party we threw having reached one million users almost two years ago today was one to remember.

So its with a sense of real pride and excitement that we can announce a new milestone today, having welcomed our millionth paying subscriber to the service. Its a testament to our fantastic users who continue to support us and spread the Spotify word, either by telling friends or sharing some of the 200 million playlists that youve put together so far.

From everyone at Spotify, wed like to give you all massive thanks. Well continue to focus on providing you with the best music service possible, and look forward to adding even more cool new features over the coming months. Whats really exciting is that this is only the beginning.

Overall, the company has 7 million active users and over 10 million registered users.

Spotify is aiming for a U.S. launch soon, and has reportedly signed deals with EMI and Sony Music. The service is allegedly close to signing a licensing deal with Universal Music Group, the largest label in the world.
