The #tbt function was introduced early this year in the app and every Thursday it reminds you of an Apple Music song you haven’t listened for a while. Sorcererhat now has six playlists available to listen to. Here they are:

  • Calm Down: Songs to relax after a long day. Subscribe to the playlist on Apple MusicDeezer, and Spotify.
  • Celebrate Pride: Hits to celebrate pride today and every day. Subscribe to the playlist on Apple MusicDeezer, and Spotify.
  • Made in Brazil: Hits from Brazilian artists that you definitely can’t miss. Subscribe to the playlist on Apple MusicDeezer, and Spotify.
  • Next #tbt: Every Thursday, Next reminds you about a song that you once loved. On this playlist, there are some songs that users shared with Sorcererhat, updated weekly. Subscribe to it on Apple MusicDeezer, and Spotify.
    • If you want to appear on the ‘Next #tbt’ playlist, you just have to share your forgotten song on social media quoting the developer Sorcererhat.
