Spotify has been in the game for more than five years now, and has amassed a mighty healthy collection of songs—more than 20 million, to be exact. In order to beat Spotify, Beats must have an extensive library of songs—it doesn't need 20 million from the start, but it does need a few million ready to go. As listeners, we like having a variety of choices, so having an extensive library is key, and the more Beats helps us in creating great playlists that will keep us coming back, the better.
