Spotify launches Disney hub to mark ‘The Lion King’ release

By | Published on Thursday 18 July 2019


With the entirely unnecessary remake of ‘The Lion King’ arriving in cinemas this week, Spotify has announced a tie-up with Disney that will see the creation of a special Disney-themed hub on the streaming platform.

That hub will include an assortment of playlists featuring music from Disney films, with names like Disney Hits, Disney Favourites, Disney Classics, Disney Sing-alongs, Disney Princess and, just for a little bit of variety, Marvel Music.

To mark this glorious occasion, Spotify has also published lists of the most streamed Disney songs on the streaming service and the Disney songs that have had the most repeat plays in the last month. And now, mainly because I failed to find a really good reason not to include them, here are those two lists for you to muse on.
