Spotify now offers lyrics for your favorite songs

Listening to all your favorite Spotify songs is one thing. Being able to sing to them correctly is another. It seems like the music company is aware of this, as it now has lyrics for all tracks featured in its library. 

Spotify partnered with Musixmatch to make this possible after many members requested the functionality. It may mean that everyone who searches for lyrics on YouTube music videos will no longer need to. It also means your shower-singing sessions will sound a whole lot better.
