    4 monthes ago - By Business Insider

    Spotify has launched a new ad format called sponsored songs which lets labels pay to promote songs and have them appear in users' playlists.
    The songs don't appear amongst your music, but instead are featured at the top of playlists.
    TechCrunch spotted the new ad format , and Spotify told the site that sponsored songs are "a product test for labels to promote singles on the free tier."
