Spotify playlists can help singers who want to become an artist on Spotify to promote their artwork. There are different kinds of Spotify playlists, some of them are created by Spotify like Editorial playlists and Algorithmic playlists ( Discover Weekly and Release Radar are the most popular playlists among Algorithmic Spotify playlists) and some of the Spotify playlists are created by listeners and Spotify artists.
Remember if your songs add frequently to the playlists which were created by listeners and artists, the chance of adding them to the Editorial and Algorithmic playlists increase and after that the number of your songs listeners can be increased significantly.
You can create a Spotify playlist on your mobile phone and also from a Spotify web player and desktop app and you can pitch your desired songs from your Spotify archive and your computer to them.
In addition, you can make your playlists secret to avoid other people see them or you can make them public and let other users find them on Spotify.
I recommend you before sharing your playlist think about the name and picture of it and choose them wisely. A professional Spotify playlist picture and Spotify playlist name can affect significantly the number of Spotify streams and also on Spotify artist revenue.

How to Create a Spotify Playlist
In order to fully understand how Spotify playlists work and how they benefit users and Spotify artists, it is important to understand the different types of Spotify playlists first.
1- Spotify Editorial Playlists
This kind of playlist is made by an editorial team that consist of music experts from all around the world who are hired to create a playlist for users. Most of these kinds of playlists are genre-specific playlists.
Having a music song placed in such a playlist can be very important to artists because they know that it will be heard by a lot of people but they should consider the point that these kinds of people are less likely to turn into their active, long-term fans.
2- The second type of playlist is Algorithmic Playlists.
Listening habits (what you like, share, download, skip, save, etc.) and the listening habits of others with similar tastes are used to create these kinds of playlists by Spotify. You can find these kinds of playlists on “Made for you “playlists on the “Home page” of Spotify.
There are two important playlists in this part:
– Discover Weekly, which is updated every Monday.
– Release Radar, which is updated every Friday.
This sort of playlist can bring you a highly targeted audience of fans who love your music, especially for less popular artists. Fans who are in this group can be converted into loyal fans of your music.
Remember, Listeners who follow playlists like Discover Weekly and Release Radar tend to be more engaged, actively pursuing music they love.
3- The 3rd type of playlist is Listener Playlists
These kinds of playlists are created by Users, you as a user also can make them public or secret, and also artists can use this kind of playlist to promote their songs.
This kind of Playlist can sometimes attract large numbers of followers and can generate significant streams and listeners for an artist just starting off. Additionally, your tracks may influence Spotify’s algorithmic playlists: when a user adds your track to their playlist, platform is informed about the type of music they like. Spotify could recommend those tracks to users with similar listening habits with enough data, resulting in a long-term audience increase.
