We all know how tiring commutes can be. Whether you’re going to college or heading to work, idling in a traffic jam or bumping shoulders with people on public transport is not the best start or end to your day. Thank God for music. And thank JioSaavn for the tunes. A good song to suit your mood can instantly give you a boost when you need it the most. Whether you need a quick surge of energy in the gym or just a sad song to drown your sorrows in, the app delivers. With over millions of active listeners, JioSaavn was able to pull some interesting data from all the music that India streamed on their app. Did you know that the average person streams over 3600 songs a year? That’s an average of about 10 a day like clockwork throughout the year! Furthermore, mood-based playlists and songs seem to be the flavour of the season. The data threw up some interesting results that have been condensed into a peppy round-up video. Here are a few.
1. Apparently, India loves its Saturday night jams and the song that takes the coveted title of favourite Saturday night jam is “The Jawaani Song” from Student Of The Year.
2. With over 9.4 million streams, Justin Bieber and Ed Sheeran’s “I Don’t Care” was a bonafide chart topper that we all loved to sing along to.
