Delayed play on track 2

Newbie here. I’m trying to learn how to transition from track 1 to track 2 - without track 2 playing right away. because in those 2 seconds it takes to transition between tracks, we’ve missed the opening sound of the track 2 song. ideally, i’m looking for a way to delay track 2 song playing for 2 seconds, so it’s a smooth transition. would love any advice. thanks!
