Cape Town – Spotify launched in South Africa on Monday and it has a free membership option as well as a premium option for R59.99 a month. 

The American company joins Deezer, Apple Music, Google Play, Tidal and Joox in the local digital music market.

South African users now have instant access to a wide range of local playlists expertly curated and regularly updated by their team of music experts, including Hip Hop Juice, Top Hits South Africa, House Nation, iGqom Le and SA Gold, alongside millions of Spotify and fan-built international playlists.


Here's how playlists are made:

Personalised discovery features including Daily Mix (a series of playlists combining your favourite tracks with new songs we think you’ll love), Release Radar (a playlist of new music based on the artists you follow and listen to most, updated every Friday) and Discover Weekly (a playlist based on your unique listening habits - coming soon) mean you’re never more than a moment away from the music you love.
