The Music Source Addon Guide

One of the great features about Kodi is the ability to listen to music as well as video add-ons. There are many options for music add-ons, but one of the most popular ones is called The Music Source. You will be able to stream your favorite songs, right from your Kodi device. In this review, we will tell you how to do this.

Reminder: Using a VPN with Kodi will allow you to privately access all Kodi add-ons. We recommend ExpressVPN, a fast, no-log VPN. You can use their Fire TV app to change IP and unblock restrictions. Save 49% off unlimited VPN with our promotion.

Note: The Music Source is a banned add-on. This means that the add-on is not supported by the XBMC/Kodi team and has been banned from mentioning on their forum. Though the Kodi team does not limit what you can install, they ask that you not mention the add-on on any of their websites. Please do not ask them about it.
