If there's one thing we know about the Music app, it's that it's changed a lot over the years. Finding something like the song that's been stuck in your head or an over-played playlist can take a second or two to figure out, and the same goes for finding a favorite album!

Here's how you can access an album of your choice from the Music app so you can start listening to those sweet, sweet tunes!
