Beauty and the Beast’s full original soundtrack and a beautiful, interactive playlist creator based from the movie has made it to Spotify.
Free and non-premium users of Spotify know how irritating ads can get. But this time, you might be greeted with a rather enchanting Beauty and the Beast ad campaign on Spotify.
The Drum reported that users listening free on Spotify will come across videos ads that will direct them to Disney’s interactive ad campaign for Beauty and the Beast. Clicking the video ad will link you to the Beauty and the Beast Castle Hub, which will direct users to a customized Beauty and the Beast-inspired playlist, based on their listening habits on Spotify.
Marco Bertozzi, vice president of Europe sales for Spotify, said the following about the campaign.
“Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is one of the most charming and beautifully-designed campaigns ever launched in partnership with Spotify. It takes music fans on a magical journey through an enchanted castle, linking music with every room and exploring the themes from the film through each of the rooms.
“These kinds of collaborations bring the very best of sound and vision together on the Spotify platform to deliver a beautiful and engaging experience for music and movie fans.”
The Beauty and the BeastCastle Hub is an interactive landing page designed for the Beauty and the Beast enthusiast. By connecting your Spotify account, you can explore Beauty and the Beast-themed rooms that contain a customized playlist with Beauty and the Beast soundtracks and other various Disney and non-Disney songs.
The Rose Room
“The rose room, in the West Wing of the castle, is the epicenter of enchantment. The Beast must learn to love another and be worthy of their love before the last petal of the enchanted rose falls…otherwise, he will remain a beast and his staff their inanimate forms for all eternity.”
Some of the 23 music tracks included in this playlist are “Beauty and the Beast (Finale) from the soundtrack, “I See The Light” from Tangled,“True Love’s Kiss” from Enchanted, Sia’s “Unforgettable,” Elton John’s “Can You Feel The Love Tonight,” and “A Whole New World.”
