The revamped MySpace Music portal has now said that it has now streamed over 1 billion songs after launching on September 25. This is a pretty impressive milestone, especially when it took iTunes 3 years to get to 1 billion. But, it isn’t fair to make them compete, since songs on MySpace are free to stream, while on iTunes they cost $1.69.
As well, MySpace Music’s streaming service is US-only (for now) for most of its catalogue, except for those few songs that have been already uploaded. And while MySpace aren’t saying who streamed the 1 billionth song, nor saying what was the 1 billionth song – the billionth stream happened a few days at launch (or last week).
