Apple Music just announced a huge milestone in the number of tracks on the music streaming service, but is it the biggest catalog out there?

Apple just posted an article “celebrating 100 million songs” on their music streaming service. As the post explains, its been 21 years since the launch of iTunes, the backbone of Apple Music and its library when it launched in 2015.

This huge number represents a shift in the business of music making and distribution. In the 1960s, 5,000 new albums were released each year. Today, every day, over 20,000 new songs land on Apple Music.

Alongside the celebration, Apple announced the launch of Apple Music Today, a new series that dives into the history of a new song every day.

In Apple’s post, global head of editorial Rachel Newman claims: “More music than you can listen to in a lifetime, or several lifetimes. More music than any other platform. Simply the biggest collection of music, in any format, ever.” While this is certainly more than Spotify’s 80 million tracks, we’re not sure the statement is true.

Napster have been advertising over 110 million songs on their homepage for at least three months now, while YouTube Music boasted over 100 million back in June.
