Roblox Listening Parties Allow Users to Listen to New Music In Popular Experiences
The first listening party features music from recording artist Poppy.
Social experience platform Roblox revealed a new feature called Listening Parties, which will allow users of popular Roblox experiences to listen to new music as they hang out in each experience.
The first Roblox Listening Party will feature recording artist Poppy, whose newest album, Flux, was released on September 24, 2021.
The Listening Party will see Poppy’s music played in a series of popular Roblox experiences, including Overlook Bay (pictured above), RoBeats, Robloxian High School, Creatures of Sonaria, Dragon Adventures, City Life, The Floor is Lava, Color Block Tower, and Fairytale Life Roleplay.
Over the weekend of September 25-26, 2021, Poppy will jump into each of the associated experiences and answer questions from fans and users about her new album.
To celebrate this first Listening Party, Roblox users will be able to collect two free virtual items from the Roblox catalog.
In a press release, Jon Vlassopulos, vice president and global head of music for Roblox, commented on this new Listening Party feature:
“It has been such a pleasure working with Poppy and Sumerian Records to launch our first ever Listening Party. Music is such a natural part of the way we express ourselves, entertain ourselves, and find connections with other people, and we want to keep finding new ways to make music more of an integral part of the Roblox experience. Allowing Poppy’s fans to enjoy her new album Flux where they are already spending time with their friends seemed like a no brainer, and our developers have jumped at the opportunity to participate!”
