Music on Instagram is a great way to add a little flair and emphasis to your story. However, it’s important to remember that a song should fit with the persona of your account. For example, if you’re a professional business account, you don’t want to use songs with explicit lyrics.

You can use music on Instagram to promote a new song or gear, or to simply capture your real life. But the music selection can vary from country to country, and it’s always a good idea to check the rules for using copyrighted music on your account.

If you’re a musician, you may want to consider IG Reels, which allow you to easily add music to your Instagram stories. With IG Reels, you can overlay a music video over an image and even add stickers. IG Reels also gives you the option to include editing cuts and show off the music production techniques you’re using.

Another way to play music on Instagram is by using the SoundCloud app. This is a free app that lets you upload and share music. Once you’ve uploaded your song, it will automatically be redirected to your Instagram Stories. Then, you can add text and hashtags to your story.

When you’re ready to upload your music to your Instagram Stories, open the app and go to the Music section. Choose a genre, such as rock, rap or pop, and a mood, such as romantic or mellow.
