Introducing: #THEHOTLIST Collections™


Introducing: #THEHOTLIST Collections™

Ever since I began putting together a weekly curated playlist on Apple Music – last August, the response has been pretty incredible.

As most of you reading this will already know, I live for new music – and so I created these playlists not because I have to …but because I really do enjoy bringing breaking new vibes to the masses.

However, as the popularity of THEHOTLIST continues to grow, many of you out there who are not yet subscribed to Apple Music have begun to express the desire to listen

So today I’m attempting to solve this, with the announcement of THEHOTLIST Collections™.

Available exclusively to iOS users in the UK – to start, with more broader international support coming, THEHOTLIST Collections™ let you keep your favourite playlists (or songs) from #THEHOTLIST to play whenever and wherever you wish… in just a few taps on your iPhone, and without having to go searching for every new jam you find and like – yourself.

Plus, with audio previews built-in – and the ability to one-tap buy either an individual song (or a particular playlist) on iTunes, it’s now possible for those who currently live outside the walls of Apple Music to also get a feel for #THEHOTLIST and its weekly picks.

Purchasing a collection is as simple as tapping on its provided cover. You’ll then be redirected to iTunes where you can choose to buy either the entire playlist – or an individual song.

Of course, if you ever change your mind and want to subscribe to Apple’s music service – you can do that here, ($9.99/mo for individuals and $14.99/mo for up to 6 family members).

Each member of an Apple Music Family Membership gets unlimited access to the entire Apple Music catalog, music recommendations tailored to their personal music tastes, and access to their own iCloud Music Library, which makes it possible for them to listen to their music on all of their favorite devices.

Covering a range of genres, THEHOTLIST consists of 20 handpicked tracks which together provide over 1-hour of curated listening per week for Apple Music members, and updates with a new version that can be added to your personal ‘My Music’ library – every Friday.

Weekly artist recommendations are also served to, Sunday evening.

And if you happen to miss one, fear not … as we’re also making every past edition available for replay – exclusively by AM subscribers, at
