Spotify Playlist Feel the Love

Music is the universal language of love, and in this month of Valentine’s, it’s definitely setting the scene for romance. The relationship between music and love is profound – music has the ability to touch us emotionally, and those who are in love have always expressed their feelings for one another through the lyrics of a song, or a melody when words alone will not suffice.

On Valentine’s Day, love is truly all around, inspiring people to take thoughtful actions, like sending gifts, setting up cosy candle-lit dinners, proposing marriage or renewing their relationship vows. One of the most vital ingredients in the day’s recipe for romance is music, with people worldwide setting the scene with songs that they love, thereby transporting their Valentine’s moment to a magical place.

Making a playlist of songs is an art and can take time, so try these different playlists specially curated and released by Spotify for Valentine’s Day.

First is 100 Best African Love Songs, a playlist with the best love songs from the continent from the 2000s to date, which everyone can enjoy while reminiscing where they were when a specific song was released. For those tying the knot, there’s Small chops, a selection of West African wedding songs specially curated to light up the moment and turn every wedding reception into a feast of love.

Cocoa butter is a smooth blend of local and international R&B and soul tracks, the perfect soundtrack for Valentine’s celebration, and only matched by Bedroom Jams for setting the scene on a charged evening of romance.

The songs on Country Kind of Love will strike up a melodic rhythm for Valentine’s event, while 90s Love Songs has beautiful numbers from icons like Brandy, Celine Dion and Mariah Carey. Finally, for those moments when love hurts, there’s the End in Tears playlist to lean into for comfort.

While Spotify has an impressive 1,116,121 playlists globally that contain the word “Valentine” in them, those who simply want to share playlists with friends, and those who are hurt from heartbreak are also included in the day, with the word “galantines” (for your female besties) featuring in 28,188 of Spotify’s playlists, and the term “break-up” included in 870,884 playlists around the world.

Adding to the fun of the moment is Blend, a great Spotify feature for friends and couples to try out. Blend merges your most-streamed songs with that of another person, generating a matching results percentage that shows you how much your music tastes align. Try it by typing “BLEND” in the search bar, clicking on “create blend” and simply sharing your invite link with your fellow Spotify streamer (or secret crush!).

Get ready to stir up your emotions with music, and enjoy your Val.

YouTube Announces New Ways for Creators to Make Money

Published

$100m YouTube Grant

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

YouTube has introduced an improved monetisation system for creators to boost their earnings through the video-sharing platform.

At the inauguration of Made on YouTube, the company said content creators could make more money through an initiative it called the YouTube Partner Program (YPP).

The firm said from early 2023, beginning in early 2023, it would move from a fixed fund to a unique revenue-sharing model for Shorts for both current and future YPP creators.

It stated that Shorts-focused creators could apply to YPP by meeting a threshold of 1,000 subscribers and 10 million Shorts views over 90 days.

These new partners will enjoy all the benefits YPP offers, including ads monetisation across Shorts and long-form YouTube videos. This is in another option to the existing criteria where long-form creators can still apply to YPP when they reach 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 watch hours.

Creators can choose the option that best fits their channel, while YouTube maintains the same level of brand safety for advertisers.

To support creators in their early journey to YouTube, YouTube will also introduce a new level of YPP with lower requirements that will offer earlier access to Fan Funding features like Super Thanks, Super Chat, Super Stickers and Channel Memberships, the platform explained.

“Over the last three years, YouTube has paid out $50 billion to over 2 million creators, artists and media companies through its Partner Program – more than any other platform; that’s $45 million a day, $1.9 million an hour, $528 a second.

“Today’s announcements prove that YouTube is continuing to lead the way in its commitment to creators everywhere,” YouTube creators Colin and Samir, said.

The CEO of YouTube, Susan Wojcicki, while commenting on the new initiative, stated that, “The YouTube Partner Program was revolutionary when we launched it back in 2007, and it’s still revolutionary today.

“Over the last three years, YouTube has paid creators, artists, and media companies more than $50 billion. That $50 billion has changed the lives of creators around the world and enabled new voices and stories to be told. But we’re not done yet.

“When we introduced the YouTube Partner Program, we made a big bet: we succeed only when our creators succeed. And today, we’re doubling down. We’re introducing the next chapter in how we reward creativity on our platform by expanding access to our YouTube Partner program.”
