When a user is playing a video on youtube and navigates away, there is a mini-player that pops and the video keeps playing. To me this is an annoyance but others apparently like it. I have had a few peopla ask for something similar so they can continue playing songs from an artist while navigating the site.

Requirements would probably be something like:

As a user, I would like to be able to have a song I am playing, continue playing if I navigate away from the page I am currently on.

If I navigate away, continue playing the song in a popup player (or maybe add it to the header/footer somewhere)

If the song completes, continue playing songs by that artist as a playlist

If the user plays a new song on a page, close the popup player and continue to play the song from the player on the page
