Spotify and Genius – Behind the Lyrics

Spotify has teamed up with music-lyrics app Genius (formerly known as Rap Genius) to create the Behind the Lyrics initiative. It will feature playlists curated by artists, including Pusha T, Tinashe, and Diplo, as well as annotations, fun facts, and stories from the Genius community.

Behind the Lyrics

If you want to explore the music you listen to, why not check out Behind The Lyrics by Spotify? The new feature lets you browse the lyrics of songs from your favorite artists. It also provides fun facts and quotes. Some of these contributions are verified notes by artists, while others are tweets. You can also see how much time is left to add annotations to a song.

Initially, this feature is only available in English. It will only be available on some songs, and it won’t show you the full lyrics. However, it does offer a handy feature: lyrics can play in sync with the music. However, you have to be in the right location for the lyrics to be displayed. On the Spotify app, click on the ‘now playing’ bar. A new tab will appear on the screen.

Currently, Spotify uses Genius and Musixmatch to provide lyrics for its users. These sites are geared towards artists and music genres. The Spotify lyrics feature may not show up for popular artists or songs. However, if a song has significant Spotify streams, it may show up for users.

Spotify previously offered the Behind the Lyrics feature on selected songs, but it was limited to mobile only. In addition, it was only available in some countries. Eventually, the Lyrics feature was rolled out to the US. However, Spotify took its time to make the feature available to everyone, and some users will still be left out.

Until now, Spotify users had to use Google or other sites to find song lyrics. But with the new feature, Spotify users can have access to the lyrics right inside the app, anywhere they’re using Spotify. The lyrics also play along with the music, so you can sing along.

Songwriter Pages

Spotify has recently launched a beta version of its Songwriter Pages, a feature that is meant to make its service more user-friendly and more helpful to songwriters and publishers. With this feature, songwriters will be able to create their own personal page on the Spotify website and market their work directly to their fans. In addition, they will no longer be left out in the cold by the company’s metadata-driven system.

In addition to creating a profile page, Spotify also enables writers to set up their own playlist on the site. This playlist contains songs written by the writer, and each songwriter has a corresponding playlist that allows listeners to listen to their work. By creating your own playlist on Spotify, you can give your fans an easy way to discover new songs and artists.

Songwriter Pages are a fantastic new feature that will allow users to view the credit of the songwriter for each song. Spotify’s Songwriter Pages will help artists increase their visibility and reach by giving them more credit for their songs. The page will also allow listeners to explore the vast catalogs of different songwriters.

As a songwriter, you’ll be able to view the lyrics of popular songs and share your work with your community. With so many songs already on the platform, it can be difficult to be unique and craft a rhyme that is not already being used by another artist. This is where “SURPRISING RHYMING” comes in. This tool aims to provide songwriters with the tools they need to create new songs that people have never heard before.

Previously, songwriters had to use the “Behind the Lyrics” feature. This feature was launched in partnership with Genius and offered song lyrics interspersed with commentary and trivia. However, many people have been requesting real-time lyrics. As a result, Spotify has answered their demands through its feedback forum. The new feature will be available in the bar and Now Playing view of the app.

Crowd-sourced Fact Tracks

Spotify and Genius are teaming up to bring song lyrics to life, partnering to create a new feature called “Fact Tracks.” Rather than scrolling through each lyric, these fact-filled songs will appear as the user listens to a song. They will draw on verified artist annotations as well as research by the Genius team to provide relevant information.

These new fact tracks will be available on the Spotify iOS app. The Genius team has encouraged its community to participate and contribute to this new feature. They say they hope that the fact tracks will become a staple of the Spotify experience. However, they’re not quite ready yet, so the community will have to be patient.

The platform has expanded its focus from music to various forms of content. Initially, it started as Rap Genius, but has since expanded to encompass all kinds of content. It has also powered annotations for President Obama’s State of the Union address. It is also working with celebrities and organizations to incorporate their annotations into the platform.

The new feature will be available to all Spotify users on Jan. 12. This feature also provides artists with more ways to engage with their fans. Although Spotify won’t allow users to create their own annotated playlists on its platform, it will enable Spotify users to participate in the crowdsourced data effort.


Spotify has quietly beta-tested a new feature for its music service, Storyline, called a “visual storyboard” for artists. The feature is essentially an Instagram-like way for artists to share their work with their fans. Users can select multiple images and add text. They can highlight the desired parts of the images or text.

Storyline is similar to Spotify’s Behind the Lyrics feature, but the content comes directly from the artist. Unlike Behind the Lyrics cards, which are provided by third-party company Genius, the Storyline feature comes directly from the artist. In theory, this could save Spotify money by cutting out the middleman.

This feature allows artists to explain the feeling behind their songs. While it would be nice if Spotify produced the stories, it’s important to note that the platform is not responsible for the accuracy of the content. This is not to say that artists shouldn’t be allowed to contribute to the Storyline feature. In fact, it’s entirely possible that artists might have their own dashboard in the future.

The new feature is a natural extension of the company’s efforts to be closer to artists. Spotify partners with lyric company Genius to power the Behind the Lyrics feature. The partnership with Genius has been in place since early 2016. While Spotify claims 217 million monthly active users, that number doesn’t include the 100 million paying subscribers. The new feature is a step in Spotify’s mission to provide a more personalized experience for its users.

Genius users can also add notes to their own lyrics. The app displays these annotations on song pages. It also gives users the ability to share selected lyrics through social media. This will allow users to develop a closer connection with the music they listen to. While Spotify has partnered with Genius, it’s not the only music platform to implement the new feature. Another popular music platform, Apple, offers a similar feature, called “Connect.” This feature allows users to see updates from artists they follow.
