Spotify playlists are one of the most valuable pieces of data you can analyze with the Spotify API, as they combine both musical tracks with social curation metrics, allowing you to see which playlists have a high follower count and which songs are featured on those playlists. This can also help if you’re looking to collaborate with other artists or promote your own music, as you can see which other artists are on the same playlists you’re featured on and potentially reach out to those artists.

Using the Spotify API, our service will help you scrape this data legally from Spotify. All you need to supply is your own Spotify API key, which will allow us to access the Spotify API on your behalf and then extract out the raw data from their API into downloadable collections you can immediately use in Excel or other analysis tools.

The two main approaches outlined here for scraping playlists are through either search results or scraping by a user. If you already know the name of the playlist you want to scrape, or have a more broad idea or search terms you want to try, then use the search result scraping approach. You can get back a lot of playlists that match a broad category, which can be helpful if you’re looking to do a wider outreach or analysis.

Another approach you may consider is to scrape all playlists that a given user owns or curates. For example, the official “Spotify” user maintains a few popular playlists we all see on our home screen and browse section that are the most popular playlists on the platform. To scrape all of the playlists that Spotify offers, you would want to see the User Scraping option where you can enter the username of any Spotify user and collect back their playlists.
