Music streaming service Spotify was nice enough to research and compile the thirty most popular songs with college students and now you’ve got a sweet playlist for this weekend.
According to the music nerds, the most popular song among college students right now is Wes Walker’s Jordan Belfort. Students are also huge fans of Mac Miller (three songs in the top 30) and Drake (also three songs) and oddly enough, not one Journey song made the list. Bros don’t still listen to Journey? Huh.
So here’s how they compiled the data. NUMBERS!
To determine the The Sound of Students in the United States, Spotify data alchemist Glenn McDonald started with anonymized data about the music played by US university students who have taken advantage of the Spotify’s Student Discount. He compared how popular that music is among students against how popular it is with all other US listeners, to determine the music that “pops out” as being the most distinctive to US students’ listening habits.
