On mobile, Spotify has partnered with Genius, one of the web’s most-popular lyrics sites, to offer Behind The Lyrics. Let’s see if Spotify still has what it takes to keep rivals like Apple Music, Google Play Music, and Amazon Music Unlimited at bay.
Spotify is a new way to enjoy music. Simply download and install, before you know it you’ll be singing along to the genre, artist or song of your choice. With Spotify you are never far away from the song you want. There are no restrictions in terms of what you can listen to or when. Forget about the hassle of waiting for files to download and fill up your hard drive before you get round to organizing them. Spotify is instant, fun and simple.
Clicking an artist’s name pulls up additional songs by the artist, and an About tab that contains an artist’s biography, photos, and hyperlinks to related Spotify pages. I killed quite a few minutes in testing leaping from wizkid’s songs to Burna’s songs too. However, LiveXLive Powered by Slacker Radio’s DNA station does a better job of fleshing out artist profiles through the use of interviews and playing the music that influenced the artists’ sound.
The Spotify Experience
Spotify’s free 128Kbps and Premium 320Kbps streams sound good. If you listen to Spotify using a laptop or phone during work hours or the morning/evening commute, you’ll find the sound quality satisfactory. You can build playlists with any of the tracks or albums in Spotify’s deep catalog. By default, Spotify streams tracks on your playlists with gapless playback. Spotify also gives you the option to crossfade songs, and even the ability to adjust the number of seconds (1-12) to fade. It’s not something I use, but DJs (or wannabe DJs) might find it appealing. If you want to build a playlist with a friend, turn on the collaborative playlist option to let your playlist be edited by others. Besides listening to singles, albums, and playlists, you can create an Artist Radio station that plays music from your favorite musicians, as well as similar-sounding musicians.

We all know that Spotify Technology S.A. is an international media services provider. It is legally domiciled in Luxembourg and is headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden. And Unlike physical or download sales, which pay artists a fixed price per song or album sold, Spotify pays royalties based on the number of artist streams as a proportion of total songs streamed. It distributes approximately 70% of its total revenue to rights holders, who then pay artists based on their individual agreements.
