We here at thefanboyseo.com love this playlist as well, particularly me, as I write stuff for the site. The Discover Weekly playlist is updated every Monday morning and offers the best music recommendations based on what the user has been listening in the past. Even better is that its presented in a “mixtape” format making it very personalized. Its really the perfect reason to expect Mondays.
