Learn Basic String and Array Methods by Building a Music Player - Step 24

Hello, if you look above to see the beginning of the code block:

const songsHTML = array
    .map((song)=> {
      return `... `;
    })

you’ll notice that all of the template literals are inside the map function applied to array. As you can see, this code above is more clear and understandable. So, you can simply add the join method to the existing array at the end of the map method. Happy coding :slightly_smiling_face:.

You have spot at the bottom to add this method, scroll down to see the last curly bracket.

Actually, that is not the last curly bracket. The last curly bracket closes the renderSong function. Instead, he should assign a string to the songsHTML variable using the join function on the array. And array variable end with map function and that is not end with curly bracket.

So i guess this could start at the top and still work?

I really struggled with this. I now understand I had the location correct, but in the example it states the separator takes a space (between quotations).

const sentence = exampleArr.join(" "); // Separator takes a space character

Once I removed the space between quotations, it accepted my answer. I hope this helps someone else.
