YouTube Music Lands in Nigeria

From the Coachella livestream to popular videos like Wizkid’s “Joro“, Burna boy’s “On The Low“, and Drake’s “God’s plan” people come to YouTube to be part of music culture and discover new music. But YouTube was made for watching, which meant fans have had to jump back and forth between multiple music apps and YouTube.

Those days will soon be over. Today, we’re excited to bring YouTube Music to Nigeria. YouTube Music is a new music streaming service made for music listening, on top of the magic of YouTube: making the complete world of music easier to explore and more personalized than ever. Whether you want to listen, watch or discover – all the ways music moves you can be found in one place. 

Here are six reasons we think you’re gonna like YouTube Music:

  • It’s ALL here. Not just music videos, but official albums, singles, remixes, live performances, covers and hard-to-find music you can only get on YouTube. 
  • Recommendations built for you. A home screen that dynamically adapts to provide recommendations based on what you’ve played before, where you are and what you’re doing. At the gym workin’ on that fitness? Escaping during your commute? The right music is right here, built just for you. 
  • Thousands of playlists across any genre, mood or activity. That means no matter what kind of music you like, where you are, what you’re doing, or what mood you’re in, you can easily find the right playlist for that moment. Try “RELEASED” to discover new music or “Afrobeats Hotlist” to get the rhythm flowing. 
  • Smart Search so we’ll find the song, even if you can’t remember what it’s called. Try “that billionaire song” or “That rap song with flute” – We got you. You can also search by lyrics (even if they’re wrong). It’s that “bode thomas” right? 
  • The hottest videos. The hottest videos in the world right now are right there, on their own dedicated Hotlist screen. And with YouTube Music Premium you can seamlessly transition between a song and its music video for uninterrupted listening and watching with a simple tap of a button. 
  • No internet? No problem. Get YouTube Music Premium to listen ad-free, in the background and on-the-go with downloads. Plus, your Offline Mixtape automatically downloads songs you love just in case you forgot to.

While fans can enjoy the new ad-supported version of YouTube Music for free, we’re also launching YouTube Music Premium, a paid membership that gives you background listening, downloads and an ad-free experience for [N900] a month.
