Have you ever wondered what songs are more popular in your city than in other cities around the world at this very moment? Wonder no more. The music streaming giants at Spotify have your answer!
Thanks to some anonymous data gathering from its millions of music-addicted users around the world, Spotify has created an international map that reveals exactly which songs are most distinctively popular in which cities. Pretty neat, huh?
By clicking on any of the nearly one thousand world cities listed on the map (and logging in with your free account), music fans can find a playlist featuring the specific tunes that define their city versus any other city on the planet. Not the most popular songs in the city (which is probably similar in a lot of places thanks to catchy buggers like Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran), but the most distinct. Or as Spotify tells us, “This is music that people in each city listen to quite a bit, which people in other cities also do not listen to very much. So it is, exactly, the music that makes them different from people everywhere else.”
Click on your city below to see and listen to the tunes that are unique to your fellow inhabitants right now. Then compare it to anywhere you want.
