Users will be able to Block Bands on Spotify

industry-insider---spotify

Go ahead and get the “Thank U, Next” joke out of your system. I’ll wait. Because that’s exactly what you’ll be doing with Spotify’s latest feature: telling various bands you can’t stand that you no longer want them to pop up on the curated playlists you otherwise enjoy.

And this isn’t just about annoying music. There are very legitimate reasons why you might have a moral objection to certain artists—known serial abusers, for example—and you’d rather they just go away for good. If you’re lucky, you might even be able to boot them out of your Spotify life right now.

As Thurrott reported yesterday, Spotify appears to be testing the new artist-blocking feature “with a smaller group of users.” I’m not running any alpha or betas of the Spotify app, but I noticed that I have the feature. You should check, too, as turning it on for any artist you dislike will ensure you don’t have to hear them on Spotify ever again. As Mehedi Hassan describes:

“This means it will block music from that artist on your personal library, playlists, automatically curated playlists, charts, radios, and everything else. In fact, you won’t be able to manually play music from an artist you’ve blocked even if you wanted to — and you’d have to unblock an artist before you can play a certain track from them. Blocking an artist doesn’t block tracks they have featured on, however.”

You would think that it would be easy to block an artist the minute one of their songs pops up, but the process is a bit more involved than that. When you tap on the triple-dot icon next to a song’s name in the Spotify app, the context menu doesn’t give you a way to block the artist outright.

Instead, you’ll have to scroll down a bit and tap on “View artist,” or just visit an artist’s Spotify page directly in the app. (Though I can access artist-blocking features on my iOS Spotify app, I didn’t see them on the web-based player or the Android app when I wrote this article.)

Once there, you’ll have to tap the same triple-dot icon in the upper-right corner of the app to access the contextual menu for the artist in question. If you have access to Spotify’s blocking feature, you’ll see a new option that reads, “Don’t play this artist.” Tap that, and you’ll be (almost entirely) free from them on Spotify—or, at least, until you have a change of heart (or become obsessed with a new single). If that happens, you’ll have to visit the artist’s page again to remove your block.

And it’s important to note that this “block” isn’t like to a Facebook block, where you’ll never see that which you block on the service. When I blocked Abba on Spotify, for example, they still appeared on Jonathan Van Ness’ (incredible) playlists. However, when I ran through the playlist, Spotify automatically skipped any and all Abba songs. (Sorry, Jonathan!)

There’s no word on when Spotify might roll this feature out to more users, so keep checking the app if you don’t have the blocking ability. You could also try enrolling in the service’s alpha or beta tests, if you want speedier access to whatever the company is working on.

Eminem & Kanye West Have the Most Popular Workout Songs on Spotify

Spotify used data from its more than 43.5 million workout-themed playlists on the streaming service to determine the most popular sweating-it-out songs — and Eminem comes out on top.

Em had the top two biggest workout songs on the streaming service, with “‘Till I Collapse” coming in at No. 1 for the third year in a row. Additionally “Lose Yourself,” from the 8 Mile soundtrack, came in at No. 2. The hit spent 12 weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 chart when it was released in 2002.

Taking the No. 3 spot is Kanye West’s “Stronger,” and with lyrics like “work it, make it, do it, makes us harder, better, faster, stronger,” it’s no surprise. Coming in fourth is West’s “Power,” followed by “Can’t Hold Us” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.

Spotify went further and broke down the favorite workout songs according to different groups of people. Women listened to Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ hit “Uptown Funk,” which was the third longest-leading Hot 100 No. 1 with 14 weeks at the top spot. Men preferred “‘Till I Collapse,” and it was also the song of choice for all listeners aged 13 to 35. Those between 35 and 55 favored Survivor’s ’80s hit “Eye of the Tiger.” The top song for people older than 55 was “All About That Bass” by Meghan Trainor, which spent eight weeks at the top of the Hot 100.

Drake owns the Artist of the Year category while country’s Kasey Musgraves scores Album of the Year for her dynamic Golden Hour. The fiery collaboration between Cardi B, J. Balvin and Bad Bunny made “I Like It” an easy choice for Song of the Year and Breakout Artist Juice WRLD has been giving everyone “Lucid Dreams” all year long.

Apple could bundle streaming video with a subscription to magazines, music, and iCloud storage

macos-itunes12-7-ios11-apple-music-hero.jpg

Apple is already rumored to be planning a news and magazine subscription service for next year, and the company is reportedly considering bundling it with the video content it’s been acquiring at a rapid pace. A new report in The Information echoes an earlier story from The Wall Street Journal that said Apple could bundle its original video programming — like those coming from its multiyear deal with Oprah Winfrey — with news content, magazines, Apple Music, and iCloud storage. The timing, however, isn’t yet known.

Apple is likely still in the process of deciding the details of how to package, price, and sell all these services, whether together or separately. Previous video experiments like Planet of the Apps were unceremoniously shoved into iTunes and Apple Music. We’d have to expect that there’ll be a more coherent plan in place for the new shows that Apple is sinking billions of dollars into.

Beyonce and Jay-Z’s ‘Everything Is Love’ Now Available on Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon

ajay

At some point in the wee hours of Monday morning, Tidal’s exclusive on Beyonce and Jay-Z’s new tag-team album “Everything Is Love” became available on Apple Music(and iTunes), Spotify Premium, Amazon and Pandora — and a spokesperson for Spotify confirmed to Variety that the album will be available on the service’s free tier in two weeks.

However, bonus track “Salud” — which was released at the same time as the album and features similar artwork but is not in its sequence — remains a Tidal exclusive.

This breaks the tradition set by Beyonce’s 2016 “Lemonade,” which remains a Tidal streaming exclusive more than two years after its release, although it is available for download on iTunes.  “Beyonce’s album ‘Lemonade’ is not currently available on Spotify,” the notice reads. “We are working on it and hope to have it soon.”

Tidal is primarily owned by Jay-Z in partnership with several other artists, including Beyonce.

The album arrived on Saturday afternoon after hints began trickling out with social media posts containing images from the “Everything Is Love” visual campaign. One image posted by Beyonce on Instagram received nearly 200,000 likes in less than 20 minutes as many noted that, once again, Queen Bey had broken the internet.
