(Swift) How to output the content of a Dictionary line by line ?

When you create a dictionary, the content is displayed in one single line in the console :

[[Artist: Artist1, Title: Song1, Album: AlbumA], [Artist: Artist2, Title: Song2, Album: AlbumB], [Artist: Artist3, Title: Song3, Album: AlbumC]]

var myAlbum =
[
    ["Title":"Song1", "Artist":"Artist1", "Album":"AlbumA"],
    ["Title":"Song2", "Artist":"Artist2", "Album":"AlbumB"],
    ["Title":"Song3", "Artist":"Artist3", "Album":"AlbumC"],

]

println(myAlbum) 

But I would like to get in the console something like :

[[Artist: Artist1, Title: Song1, Album: AlbumA],

[Artist: Artist2, Title: Song2, Album: AlbumB],

[Artist: Artist3, Title: Song3, Album: AlbumC]]

you can use a for in loop.

var myAlbum =
[
    ["Title":"Song1", "Artist":"Artist1", "Album":"AlbumA"],
    ["Title":"Song2", "Artist":"Artist2", "Album":"AlbumB"],
    ["Title":"Song3", "Artist":"Artist3", "Album":"AlbumC"],

]

for (key, value) in myAlbum {
    println(value)
}

Awesome, it works well ! Thanks
