This would value Spotify at $8.4 billion. The new valuation would be double that of rival streaming service Pandora, which has a market capitalization of around $3.5 billion. This news comes just months after it was reported that Spotify was looking for as much as $500 million in new venture funding.

This funding would be a strategic move for Spotify, beset as it will soon be by competitors like Apple's rumored Beats music service and the just-relaunched Tidal, bought by rapper and business mogul Jay Z recently.
