How to add Custom Music to Sims 4?

Step 1: Decide On Music To Use

I recommend deciding which songs you would like to add and putting them in a separate folder beforehand. That way you are not digging around for songs and can just copy and paste. Remember though, they have to be MP3 files otherwise this will not work!

Step 2: Sims 4 Folder

If you don’t already know where this is, you will need to go to This PC, Documents, Electronic Arts, and then you will find the Sims 4 folder. Not only can you find your saved Screenshots, recorded videos, and mods folder, but this is also where you can put your Custom Music!

Step 3: Custom Music Folder

Double click on the Sims 4 folder and then double click on Custom Music. This will open up showing folders ranging from Alternative to SPop. These are the folders for the current in-game music, but when you open them up there is nothing there. Perfect! Copy and Paste your music to its respected genre and you are set!

For example, I put my Luke Bryan music in the Easy Listening folder.

Step 4: Launch the Game and Edit the Music

You will need to make some edits to the game music so here is how to do that!

Go into the game options, then hit Music. Here you have access to all the music in the game or that you added. If you want just your music to play, uncheck all the game music and just leave your music checked. I have a couple of stations where the in-game music and my music rotate (One song is my added music, and the next one is in-game music). Hit Apply changes and go in-game!

You have now added your custom music to the Sims! Now that version of your Sim that you made can listen and dance to your favorite artist! The best part? No more Simlish-speaking songs! If you are still struggling to install custom music, you can also have a look at this helpful clip on YouTube.
