Why can't I play individual songs with premium but I can play playlists

So I can play music on playlists. I can't play music that I search up or any albums recommended to me. If I add music then I can play them on my PC. Also my PC's application doesn't connect to spotify on my phone. My web browser works perfectly fine.
