Pretty much everyone’s on Spotify now. It’s a music lover’s paradise! But instead of just playing the “Sounds like High School” playlist over and over again (trying to relive those Sekolah Menengah days) or the “Balik Kampung” playlist (since you’re going through post-Raya blues) – Let me do you one better:

Maximize your drive time by listening to things that will expand your horizons, expose you to new things, educate you. Listen to things other than music on Spotify!

So sit yourself down and relax, sayang – you’re in for some educating because I’m about to take you to Spotify school. You’ll definitely find something new to listen to here and I’ve included a mystery link for each genre to get you started!

There you have it! But darlings, this is just the tip of the iceberg for what Spotify has to offer. Just browse through their different genres and moods or make use of their search bar! I don’t mean to pimp them out but they’re making it really easy to feel more and just BE MORE by providing us with a way to do more while driving.
