Ever listened to a song and thought ‘i have no idea what this person is saying’? Well now, Spotify and crowd-sourced lyric website Genius have collaborated to create the ‘Behind the Lyrics’ playlist. The curated playlist will give users fun facts about the songs, stories from the artists and lyrical excerpts.
According to Spotify’s blog: “We’re introducing a brand new playlist, Behind the Lyrics (Hip Hop), followed by Behind the Lyrics (HITS) in the coming week. These playlists, curated by Spotify and Genius, will allow you to go Behind the Lyrics of your favourite hip hop tunes.”
To kick things off, three artists— Pusha T, Tinashe, and Diplo — will take you Behind the Lyrics and share their personal take on some of their favorite tracks.
“I’ve partnered with Genius and Spotify to take you ‘Behind The Lyrics’ of my greatest songs because every word that I write means something to me,” said Pusha T. “Together we’ve found a way to bring my fans a deeper listening experience and raise the bar for songwriters.”
“Not only are they able to hear the music and see the lyrics, but they are also able to understand where I was coming from when I wrote them and kind of get inside my head, which is really cool,” said Tinashe.
“Being a producer and writer, I really love to see how some songs resonate with fans from the feeling / meaning or just sound of the records,” said Diplo. “I have always been a person that dissects music and studies it. I was a sample spotter and I learned how to make music by listening to it.”
Behind the Lyrics playlist is available to all Spotify iPhone users, but iPhone 4/s.
