Trick with Spotify and iPhone 4S that I did accidentally but can't replicate. Help?

I know that if I am running a certain app on my phone, I can hit the home button twice and a tray will pop up showing the most recent apps I've used, and I can scroll that tray back and forth, and switch from one app to another that way.
ONE time, however, I did some key combination that brought up Spotify controls in the tray! The Spotify logo was on the left, with three buttons for back/play-pause/forward. The main window still showed whatever app I happened to be running.
Does anyone have any idea what I did? I haven't been able to find any evidence online except that apparently you're not supposed to be able to do that.
(This is *not* the same thing as hitting the home button twice when the phone is on its lock screen. I was actively running a program.)
