We have an excellent way of promoting your songs on independent playlists on Spotify. You know already that you can gain a huge following of people who listen to your song when it is in a couple of playlists. However, you can increase those plays by generate something bigger, your placements on Spotify Discover Weekly, Spotify’s Radio (which are recommended songs) or Release Radar. You likely already know it from using Spotify yourself. These are official lists that are created using a Spotify Discover Weekly algorithm for each Spotify user. As your music becomes more well known on the smaller lists you will be automatically added to customized lists of many Spotify users.
How Does Spotify Discover Weekly Work
You are likely wondering “How does Spotify Discover Weekly work?” Well, let’s explain. The list is basically the same as other computer-generated playlists. Songs on this list are generated through the algorithm based on Spotify users’ choices. This Spotify Discover Weekly algorithm determines which type of music the user listens to then gathers songs from their favorite genre. Spotify Discover Weekly can introduce new music to user’s lists each week. No two users receive the same generated lists.
Using the algorithm, Spotify identifies which songs a user is likely to enjoy. When your genre of music is listened to, your song will pop up into a user’s list for them to listen to and decide if they will keep it or pass on it. Spotify Discover Weekly has become an extremely popular playlist for all users.
Spotify Release Radar:
Newly released songs are featured on our Spotify Release Radar. The list includes artists that a listener currently follows the account of. You want more listeners, encourage fans to connect via your artist account on Spotify. Having your music on Release Radar on Spotify is a great way to let others hear it. Release Radar Spotify playlist will appear for each user.
This is not an actual radio station. This is Spotify Radio. When a user’s list is done playing or there is nothing left in their query list, Spotify Radio will begin playing. Just like the Discover Weekly lists, Spotify uses the algorithm to choose songs based on the listener’s previous choices. The Spotify algorithm chooses songs for play on the Music Release Radar for listeners to decide on.
