Saylists launches exclusively on Apple Music today.

The music-led initiative, created by Warner Music, Rothco and Accenture, aims to help people with speech and sound disorders.

The collection of playlists works by augmenting the speech therapy experience for young people through the power of music and tech.

One of the most successful therapeutic strategies is the repetition of difficult syllables, words, and phrases.

Saylists feature tracks such as Don’t Start Now by Dua Lipa for the D Playlist and Right Here, Right Now by Fatboy Slim for the R Playlist.

Using an algorithm, Apple Music looked at the lyrics of over 70 million tracks to isolate songs with significant patterns of repetition.

Finally, 173 songs were chosen by Warner Music and speech and language therapist Anna Biavati-Smith to create the initial 10 Saylists.

Saylists are exclusive to Apple Music and will be available to all Apple Music subscribers globally from today.
