Favorite artist

In WiMP for iPhone and iPad you can easily group your favorite music. Search for an artist or album, starmark the artist, album or track and that's it.


Press the button "Favorites", then you can select Favorite artists, Favorite albums or Favorite tracks. Press Favorite artists, then you get an entire list of all your favorite artists. Press one artist, e.g. Colin James, then you get the entire list of all his albums. Press one of the albums, then you see the tracks and you can listen to the album or a single track.


That is a perfect way to create your own selection of your favorite artists and music, much much better than the playlist thing in Spotify, which is only good, if you just want to create a list of e.g. partymusic.


With the favorite artist feature Spotify could work like my own cd collection and almost replace it.


Please copy this feature from WiMP to Spotify.

If that doesn't quite match what you're after, try searching to see if there's already another idea more similar.

Subscribe to artist news is obviously not the same as having a convenient way to create your own collection of your favorite artists and an easy way to access them. If I want to listen to one of my favorites, like Frank Sinatra, I have to search his name (not practical while driving) to see the list of his albums or create a playlist for him, which will show zillions of tracks, which is very annoying big mess, particularly if I want to listen to a specific album.

I really love this feature in Wimp, having my own private collection of favorite artists and music right at hand with easy access is the greatest. As long as this feature is not available in Spotify, I will stick with Wimp, event though I prefer the Spotify interface. My subscribtion to Spotify is now cancelled.

Spotify - make this feature and I'm yours.

I agree. I keep discovering new artists, and an ability to 'favorite' artists would be a great way to keeping track of those I discover, and easily get back to them. Instead of each time searching for them, and forgetting a lot of them.

Seriously Richard? The idea you are refering to got nothing to do with the idea suggested here! Did you acctually read the first post? It's not similar in any way. No wonder it takes forever time to inplement new features when spotify staff don't even understand what the ideas we are suggesting are about

Especially on my android it's very painful having to search for artists you listen to every time. And I simply don't want to stuff everything from one artist in a playlist. Especially since the songs are sorted nicely by album on the artist page.


Simple shortcuts to my favorite artists would be sufficient.

I just started to try out spotify and immediately was looking for a way to create a favorite artist list and thought surely i was missing something. With out that function, I would never upgrade to the paid version. Too bad, seems like it would be perfect with this feature.
