How Long Will My Song Stay on Each Spotify Playlist?

You’re mistaken if you believe your song will permanently stay in the Spotify playlist. Spotify playlists do not keep the songs for too long. Curators keep filtering songs and ensure the new artists are given the maximum opportunity. No one would want to listen to old songs.

On average, a song on a Spotify playlist would last two to three weeks. If you have your Spotify playlist created through a curator, it’d also last for only two to three weeks. Once this time frame has passed, your song will automatically be removed from the playlist. However, having an editorial playlist on Spotify will make your song visible for almost 28 days.

The reason is that Spotify keeps updating its playlist, removing the old songs and adding new ones. The situation is different when you have your own Spotify playlist. Spotify can’t remove any song from your privately created playlist.

There is no specified time limit to how long your song will stay on each Spotify playlist. A lot of other factors influence this decision. One of which is how well your song performs on the platform. How many listeners are you getting on your stream? Additionally. How well does your song fit well into the Spotify playlist?

If your song does well on the playlist and results in more streams, you can always pave your way through making it for at least more than a couple of weeks. Many people believe that having a personal playlist is a better option. However, exclusively having your song on the official website is a plus point in itself.
