[Spotify] What is another way to discover music?

Introduction

There was a song I wanted to share with my girlfriend on Spotify. The current way is to copy the link and text it to her or add it to our shared playlist. However, there may be a song I think more than one person will like and should check out.

User Story: As a user, I want to share a song with one or more user(s) within Spotify.

Business Value: Create an alternative opportunity for free and premium users to discover new music.
