R is used by statisticians and economists so when they moved to data science they brought this language with them. Python is more of a general purpose programming language that you can also use for data science. It is now widely used thanks to the scikitlearn and panda modules. This would be my choice if I had to start learning a language. http://www.kdnuggets.com/2015/05/r-vs-python-data-science.html
