Music can be so impactful in setting the mood for whatever your doing. One of my favorite things to do with my friends is riding around Houston to a playlist curated specifically to our adventure. You can only do this so many times until your music starts to sound dry. Here are some tips to keep your rotation fresh.
Recommended Songs and Artists
One of the easiest ways to find new music is to listen to the music that the Spotify algorithm recommends. Each day, six playlists are mixed with your top songs as well as songs that are similar to the ones you listen to. Spotify also curates a playlist for you called “Discover Weekly” for fresh tracks each week. Don’t forget to check out the recommended songs at the bottom of your playlists to find even more similar songs and artists.

We all hear a song and tell ourselves that we’re going to listen to that song again. Nine times out of ten, you probably forget. Make a playlist so you can save songs for later, and not have to worry about remembering the names of all your new music.
Following friends and creators
No algorithm can compare to the taste of the people you surround yourself with. On the Spotify Desktop app, you can follow and see what your friends are listening to in real-time, as well as browse through their playlists. Don’t forget to follow your favorite influencers — like Youtubers, models, and bloggers. Typically, you can find their profiles by look at the description of their Youtube videos or by simply searching their name.
While searching Spotify, you can find a wide variety of Spotify-made playlist as well as those made by other users. Make your searches oddly specific and find tracks to add onto your playlist. One of my favorite finds is a playlist called “Astrology Shop Playlist” which puts me in a creative and focused mood.
On Spotify, you can view the upcoming concerts in your area. Start streaming a new artists with a show coming up to prepare to sing all their lyrics live. Check out the openers for a concert you already plan on attending — they’re opening for a reason!
