SoundCloud Discover your next favorite track with the new SoundCloud Weekly playlist

Today, we’re making it easier than ever to discover what’s next in music, first on SoundCloud, with our new personalized playlist, SoundCloud Weekly.

With 180 million tracks and millions of artists to discover, sometimes SoundCloud can feel like a very big place to explore. We know many of you love the thrill of the hunt – going down a musical rabbit hole and uncovering new tracks and artists to love. But sometimes, you may want great music delivered to you auto-magically with no searching required.

That’s why we’re excited to announce the launch of SoundCloud Weekly: your personalized discovery playlist connecting you with more creators and more music than ever before, with just one button to push. Updated every Monday, SoundCloud Weekly is an algorithmically-based playlist that looks at the music you’ve listened to, liked, reposted and shared, and then makes recommendations on what you may like to hear next.

Giving listeners and creators more ways to connect is what SoundCloud is all about, and SoundCloud Weekly connects more creators with new listeners than playlists on any other audio platform. Every time you drop into SoundCloud Weekly you get the chance to discover, connect with and support more creators worldwide.

We like to think of it as the entire universe of SoundCloud, personalized just for you. But don’t take it from us – let our friend Desiigner break down the serious science of SoundCloud Weekly for you in three short lessons:

SoundCloud Weekly is like: Honey

Not seeing it in your feed? Keep on listening, liking, reposting and sharing the tracks you’re loving, and look for your SoundCloud Weekly playlist to appear the following Monday.
