Songs pinned to your Facebook profile are public, even if your posts are restricted to be seen by only friends. Songs marked with an "E" symbol have explicit lyrics.
How to Add Music to a Profile
Adding music and songs to your Facebook profile is only available on the Facebook app for iOS and Android. While the steps are similar for both, the screenshots below are from the iOS app.

On your profile, scroll down past the Friends thumbnails and the Posts box to the set of specific tabs for adding Photos, Avatars, Life events, etc., to your profile.
Locate the Music tab by swiping toward the left on the tabs. Generally, it will be located after the Life events tab.
Select the Music tab.
Select the "plus" icon on the Music screen to add a song.
Select See all to display all available songs under each category. Then, scroll down the categories and list of songs, or use the search feature to find a specific song quickly.
Tap the song you want to add.
The songs are added to the Music tab. Select the playhead to preview the song. All songs have a playback length of 90 seconds.
Select the three dots on the right of the song to display a sliding menu.
Select Pin to profile to pin the song to your public Facebook profile.
Go back to your Profile to see the song pinned below your profile photo and name.
You can also pin a song to your profile via the menu under the three-dotted icon when you preview the song in full screen.
