If you need proof that music is the food of love, try connecting Spotify to your Tinder profile. That's right — integrating your Spotify account not only can give someone a huge insight into what you're like, but Tinder users who do so get 84 percent more matches than those not linked to a Spotify account. Plus, you can immediately screen out people who don't like Billy Joel. Well, that's what I would do at least!
But seriously, music taste is one of the most personal things about you and a lot of people take their music preferences very, very seriously, so it's easy to see why it would be a great way to connect people. My girlfriend and I don't have exactly the same taste in music (for a sweet British girl she has a vast 90s R&B lyrics knowledge I will never catch up with), but there's definitely a huge overlap in what we both like to listen too. Which certainly makes car rides and listening to music around the house a lot more fun.
So what kind of music was bringing people together? Well, Tinder users love a good anthem and luckily they released a roundup of the top 10 favorite songs that Tinder users were loving on Spotify.
Here are the most popular Tinder Anthems, aka songs featured on users' profiles:
1Bad and Boujee” – Migos ft. Lil Uzi Vert

There you have it. The music that's bringing people together. As you can see there is a whole range of music types, so not matter what you like to listen to, there's probably someone out there with the same taste. Then you can make sweet music together.
