Listen to all of your deepest musical desires without interruption

The majority of us, who are music lovers, prefer secure places to listen to music. These spaces are referred to as playlists. It was an album way back in the past however, in the present digital age, it’s now an album. Mixtapes were private by them. Nobody could lend an arm or listenon them without permission. However, with playlists It’s a different matter.

Playlists form part of the huge human connection, the internet. When something is accessible online there’s no privacy, let alone the right to access. Therefore one of the current major music companies considered this issue and created an option. Spotify’s private playlist feature lets you curate your own playlists and lock the playlists to yourself!
