Spotify Editorial Playlists
These are playlists that are curated by Spotify’s Shows & Editorial team. This is a team of music experts and genre specialists from around the world, hired by Spotify to curate and manage Spotify’s own playlists. These playlists tend to have large followings and are typically the first playlists most people think of when discussing playlists on Spotify.
Many of these playlists are genre-specific – think “RapCaviar”, “Hot Country”, or “Rock This”. Others are more context-driven, such as “Songs to Sing in the Shower”, “Teen Party”, or “Relax & Unwind”.
Spotify editors often test out new tracks on smaller “feeder” playlists.
