From Our Playlist With Love

Here at HQ, we love sharing the latest content of what's hip and happening in the city with you. But with the Coronavirus outbreak, we deemed it necessary to get personal and share a list of songs that's been keeping us afloat and helping us get through this tough time in our lives. Click here to listen to all the songs we’ve chosen!

Music Is Fluent In All Five Languages Of Love

There are five languages of love - Quality Time, Gifts, Words of Affirmation, Physical Touch and Acts of Service. All of these languages can be found in music:

Quality Time

While everyone is indoors, practicing social distancing, the city feels a bit lonely. We've already put together a list of top Netflix and Showmax shows to keep you entertained. But, to keep you company while doing your chores, there's nothing better than music. Anything is possible with the perfect playlist, so spend some quality time indoors with some special music.


While you may not be able to unwrap music, it still makes a great gift. This is because it shows thoughtfulness and effort and may even help your loved ones stay sane during these tough times. Consider our playlist as a gift from us to you, to show you just how much we value all our readers.

Words Of Affirmation

Music reminds us that we are never alone. There is a song to help us through any problem. These songs include verbal compliments that reflect love and appreciation. This playlist is a constant reminder of how much we appreciate and love our audience and hope you are keeping safe at all times.

Physical Touch

We know that touching is a sensitive subject right now, but this love language is about showing expressions of love and reinforcing a sense of presence. We hope our special playlist fuels you and helps you wake up every day with a positive outlook on life.

Acts Of Service

The world is a scary place right now. But through acts of service, we can all come together and help each other survive this global pandemic. One of the ways we're helping you is by making your day better, one song at a time. So, blast some music, dance around your house and let these quarantunes guide you to positive thoughts!

How To Use Spotify

Seeing as we're all new to the platform, take a moment to study this nifty Spotify cheat sheet which will get you well on your way to jamming out to the top tunes from around the world. A major feature of the Spotify service is its personalisation, which allows fans to find the music they already love with ease, and will also help them discover new music and artists to love, based on their taste and listening patterns. When a new user joins Spotify, we take them through a ‘Taste Onboarding’ process, which helps Spotify quickly learn more about your music tastes.

Globally, Spotify has changed the way artists connect with music fans. Musicians want their music heard and Spotify has succeeded in introducing artists to millions of people the world over.
