"Lounge" or "Relax" music refers to a genre of music that is characterized by its soothing, easy-listening sound and its ability to create a relaxed and calm atmosphere. It is often associated with background music played in hotel lobbies, bars, and lounges, and on easy-listening radio stations. Lounge music often incorporates elements of jazz, exotica, and easy listening, as well as influences from various world music styles such as bossa nova, and it also can include electronic and downtempo.

Lounge music is known for its mellow, smooth sound, and its use of instrumental arrangements and orchestral arrangements. It also features vocals, but it's not the main focus of the music. Lounge music is designed to create a relaxing and soothing ambiance, and it is often used as background music for events such as dinner parties, receptions, and other social gatherings.

Lounge music has evolved throughout the years, many Lounge and Chillout subgenres have emerged such as Lounge Jazz, Lounge Pop, Lounge House, and more. This genre also can be used as a therapeutic tool to help people relax and unwind.
