his week, Spotify announced that its popular Discover Weekly playlists would now be available in South Africa. This is a cool way for people to discover new music if they are too lazy to search or if they feel overwhelmed by all the choice offered right at their fingertips.

How it works is: the streaming service takes a look at all the music you have been bumping recently and finds new music by those artists or new artists that fit within the genres you enjoy - but haven’t played yet - and gives them all to you in a neat little playlist every single Monday.

My Discover Weekly playlist surprised me because it went from Sjava to Adekunle Gold and then ended with Sabrina Claudio. It shows that while the playlist can be on the money, it can also try to introduce you to artists you don’t and won’t care about. Perhaps the playlist will be more refined to your taste the longer you use Spotify.
