How to Add Spotify Music to iMovie as BGM

-- Does anyone know how can I add to an iMovie creation a song taken from Spotify? I have a full account on Spotify, so I can download songs for offline use.

-- Hey. I'm not sure if you can but I can't find a way to put my Spotify songs on an iMovie. If there isn't a way we should definitely add one.

After you have started an iMovie project and perhaps added a title sequence and video effects, it's time to think about adding a soundtrack, background music, or sound effects for a voiceover effect, which will make your movie feel less like a collection of video clips and more like a cohesive project.

The video will be amazing with some background music, or sound effects, say, wedding videos with some background wedding songs. iMovie gives you the option to add background music to your iMovie project, and provides a library of sound effects to choose from, you can also use audio from your GarageBand and iTunes libraries. But if you want to add a song from Spotify, Apple Music or another streaming service to your iMovie project, you may encounter restrictions.
