[All Platforms][Social] Comments in songs and albums

Hello Spotify! My name is Juan Vélez and I would like to suggest the idea of adding a comment section on songs and albums. The spotify community should be able to share their opinion and thoughts on all type of reproductions on the app. That way songwriters and artists can be in touch with what their audience wants and likes, improving the streaming experience. The comment section should have a censor for negative or bad comments. This idea can bring listeners together and creates a space for everyone to share how they feel about the music they love.

Marked as new suggestion, which is a repost of this inactive idea.


Respectfully, this would add unnecessary peer pressure to the platform. 


Adding a comment section to Spotify songs could have both positive and negative impacts. Here are some potential effects:

Positive impacts:

  1. Increased engagement: A comment section could increase engagement with the songs and artists, as users could share their thoughts and opinions about the music.
  2. Community building: Users who share similar music tastes could connect and build a community around the songs they love.
  3. Feedback for artists: Artists could receive feedback on their music from their fans, potentially helping them improve their craft or tailor their music to their audience's tastes.

Negative impacts:

  1. Negative comments: A comment section could also attract negative and abusive comments, which could discourage some users from engaging with the platform and harm the artists' mental health. (Can't coddle buttholes but also can't promote hate type a vibe)
  2. Spam: Comment sections can also attract spam and irrelevant comments, which could clutter the platform and make it harder for users to find meaningful discussions.
  3. Moderation: Moderating comments can be time-consuming and require significant resources, especially if there are millions of comments across many songs.

Overall, adding a comment section to Spotify songs could create a more engaging and interactive experience for users, but it could also come with potential downsides that need to be managed effectively.

I dont think comments would be a good idea tbh some people would ruin them. 


personally i think its a good idea, but the users will write a **bleep** in the comments


I think this is not a great idea, just look at the way comments work on SoundCloud. This will turn into a moderation nightmare filled with spam, self promotion and hateful comments.


i had to like it because i have nothing to but ya i agree i would not like this because that will cause songs to go gray and artists to stop using spotify and if it also went onto playlist i would not like that for my longest playlist because that will cause me to leave spotify for good. 


if this answers your question  hit the "Accept as Solution"., maybe give me a Like. follow myspotify account link2.png? and community account here. keep up the good work  and keep on growing the community!

Well definitely something to think about! But I think it would harm the private and quiet nature of the platform. There are lots of other platforms where we can interact with the artists and the consumers already. Adding an open comment section for the albums and songs would give the platform more of a 'social media' characteristics and that is definitely not a thing I would prefer as I am using Spotify as a place where I can rest my head while playing with my lists and discovering new contents. So this big of an interaction is for sure would be a good reason for me to drop using it. 

However, as a user, I am definitely in need of a more close interaction with my friends on Spotify especially when I share my favourite songs and playlists with them. So a comment section or a type of interaction only among the people you befriended on the platform would be amazing! I would love to comment on my friends playlists, vote on them etc. 


I don't think this would add any value to the app. I want to listen to music without the influence of people's comments. As others have said, Soundcloud and YouTube comments don't add much value, so let's keep them off of this app!!
