Tips for Creating a Banger Spotify Playlist

I’m just here to tell you, Spotify > Apple Music. OKAY, OKAY. This is not a post hating on Apple Music – however you get your music fill is up to you. But to those Spotify users out there, I’m here to give you some tips to create a playlist you’ll always run back to, even years later.

For me, when it comes to music, I love to discover artists that I’ve never heard of. That make me feel good. That are not mainstream. Who deserve the recognition for their pure talent. & thank goodness for Spotify, because they have so many avenues to discover new music you may not have heard otherwise.

Discover new music you may not have heard otherwise

When I am interested in creating a new playlist [once I’ve tired out my old one(s)], I always turn to my “Discover Weekly” & “Release Radar” playlists that Spotify automatically curates based on the music I am already listening to. I also like to listen to the “New Music Friday” playlist to see if there’s anything on there that catches my attention.

Another one I like to look at is the “Pop Rising” playlist, for songs that are on the verge of blowing up. There’s always something about being “in-the-know” before other people, don’t you think? You can say, “Oh I heard and listened to them before they blew up,” as if you were the only and first person to hear their music before everyone else did.

This is how I started listening to the likes of Lewis Capaldi, King Princess, Jeremy Zucker. It’s wonderful when one song can direct you to so many other greats by the same artist. Opening up a whole new world of music.
