Spotify has just rolled out Lyrics to all Free and Premium users in the Philippines, which gives listeners in-app access to millions of song lyrics in the language in which they are sung.
Spotify has a global partnership with Musixmatch, the world’s largest catalogue of song lyrics and translations, to license these lyrics. Users can access the feature by tapping the “Lyrics” tab at the bottom of their “Now Playing” screen within the app.
“Lyrics has been one of the most requested features by Spotify users and we’re excited to make song lyrics available to listeners in Southeast Asia, including the Philippines. Listeners can now get to know their favourite tracks – and the lyrics behind them – even better. It’s another way Spotify is connecting fans and artists through the music they love,” says Boon Ken Wong, Asia Team Lead, Editorial, Spotify.
Get into the groove with Spotify’s new Lyrics feature and belt out your favourite songs at home with these surefire hits featured on Sing Along K-Pop, Girl Power Karaoke and Karaoke Duets. For those looking for a more local flavour, check out Pinoy Karaoke Hits and sing-along to popular song choices on Karaoke-themed playlists created by Filipino users which include: “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston, “A Thousand Miles” by Vanessa Carlton, “If I Ain’t Got You” by Alicia Keys, “Tell Me Where It Hurts” by MYMP, and The Goo Goo Dolls’ classic alternative rock anthem “Iris”.
