The best apps to listen to music.

We all need to get our groove on in the morning; part of my morning routine is blasting my fav artist one and singing with them as if we are in a duet even though I have the voice of a crow. This makes me motivated to go to work, especially on Mondays; at this point, we are all Garfield copycats, and we hate Monday. But music can lighten up our mood and put us in a positive mindset. Thus, you need the perfect app that can meet all your needs to get ready in the morning or listen on your way to any from work or whenever you’re bored.

List of apps.

1. Spotify


This is one of the most popular music apps out there and my personal fav as it not only has music, but you can also listen to podcasts on it. It allows you to follow your favorite artist and even sync your playlist with your other devices. You can create your own music playlist that can either be public or private and you can listen to other people’s playlists.

You can search your favorite artists, their albums and even songs on it and it classifies music by views and new releases. It also allows you to save music on your personal library that you can listen to later on. You can find a playlist for literally anything there, fan of Christmas music they got you, fan of queer music and artist, Spotify has a playlist specially curated for you.

It also sens you notifications, if you want them of course, on new release from you favorite artists or when a playlist is updated. The basic version is free; you just have to sign up for it.
