Now might be good time to check your Spotify playlists.

TikTok users are discovering a “secret” feature on the music streaming platform, leading to plenty of embarrassment online. Apparently, artists can see when you add their songs to your Spotify playlists.

The realization, shared by singer Kira Kosarin sent TikTok users spiraling, as many worried their favorite artists would read their most ridiculous playlist names.

That’s exactly the concern Kosarin addressed in her video, which now has nearly 10 million views. In the clip, the singer breaks down some of the “impeccable” playlists featuring her songs, including ones called “Can’t stop reading fan fictions,” “Let’s be depressed” and “Songs to walk your dog to.”

Meanwhile, TikTok users flooded the video’s comments with reactions — mainly their fear over who might read their playlist names.

“I feel exposed,” one user wrote.

“OH THEY CAN SEE THAT UM,” another reacted.

“WAIT I DID NOT KNOW THIS,” another added.

“Welp now I’m embarrassed,” another wrote.

Other musicians have joined in the trend, too. One singer, named Josler Tudisco, revealed that his songs have been featured on playlists named “Songs I wanna listen to while I disassociate on the highway” and “Time to uncontrollably sob.”
