Music serves an important function in everyday life. It can help you make it through the long commute to work each day. It can push you to run that extra mile on the treadmill. It can also serve as the perfect component when playing your favorite video game. So what type of music is popular among PlayStation gamers?
The PlayStation Blog has the answer for PlayStation 4 owners. One of the most popular apps available on the system has been PlayStation Music featuring Spotify. Since launching in March 2015, downloads have reached nearly 11 million with more than 190 million hours of listening logged. What type of music is popular among PS4 owners who use the app? Current Hip-Hop and RnB has dominated theTop 10 list of music streamed in 2015. Check out the top 10 below.
- 679 (feat. Remy Boyz) — Fetty Wap
- Know Yourself — Drake
- Nasty Freestyle — T-Wayne
- See You Again (feat. Charlie Puth) — Wiz Khalifa
- Hotline Bling — Drake
- Trap Queen — Fetty Wap
- Watch Me (Whip / Nae Nae) — Silentó
- Post To Be (feat. Chris Brown & Jhene Aiko) — Omarion
- B**** Better Have My Money — Rihanna
- The Hills — The Weeknd
The Top 10 list is certainly surprising in the fact that each spot is either mostly a rap or RnB artist, with no pure pop, country, or rock tracks making the list. I would say Rihanna is the closest to a pop artist and her track at number nine is one of her more edgy songs. Fetty Wap had a big year in music last year, as evidenced by him being the only artist to have two tracks in the top 10.
