Kakao M recently pulled numerous K Pop tracks from global music streaming app, Spotify. Although we will miss having the likes of IU, Epik High, Seventeen, MAMAMOO, and more on our playlists, here are a few other music platforms to check out—if you haven't already!

If you are not currently subscribed to Youtube Premium, then now is a perfect time! The app has an easy to use and seamless interface that includes your favourites tracks (carried from your Youtube account), and a few mixes recommended from your history. You can switch between music and video with ease, so you get the best of both worlds! It also features a Moods & Genres section so you can navigate music choices depending on the vibe you're feeling on that day.

Envisioned as a music library for creators, users are also able to comment on tracks, repost them, like, and share.
