  • Find the photo you want to use for your "album cover," and upload it to your Instagram Story.

  • Type in a period as the text, and use the second font to the right.

  • Tap the "A" at the top of the screen, and make sure the period has a black background behind it.

  • Click "Done," and stretch the black box to cover the entire image.

  • Save the photo, and reupload it to your Story.

  • Go to "Music," and find the song you want to use.

  • Tap the song on your screen so it shows the album cover as opposed to the lyrics.

  • Go into the edit settings, and upload the original photo to your Story again.

  • Tap on the photo until it turns into a square, and put it over the album's photo.

  • Go to "GIFs," and search "Spotify."

  • Add the sticker that looks like music is playing.
