Tinder and Spotify release Playlist Generator to help singles strike a chord with their date this cuffing season

New research from Tinder reveals that music is the ultimate compatibility test for Gen Z.* 


In the perfect match stakes, singletons are most hoping to find a match who shares their taste in music (84%). This, along with other shared interests, outweighs looks (64%), political views (61%) and even a sense of humour (48%).


To help singles find their groove, Tinder and Spotify have collaborated - scouring bios and profiles - to create playlists suited to every Cuffing occasion, so that matches can kick off their next date on the right note. Introducing the ‘Date Night Playlist Generator’, which has just launched. 


As we slide into Cuffing Season, over half (51%) of Gen Z are hoping to get into a relationship and nearly a fifth (17%) are looking to casually date, as the nights draw in. While temperatures are set to drop, dates at home will be on the rise, with 18-24 year olds admitting that they fancy having a date at home after just four dates.


To find a match made in perfect harmony on Tinder, take note that ‘Music’ ranks as the most popular Interest on profiles** and if you’re looking for a music wingman, it’s Drake who is sure to prove a hit with your matches, as he is the artist most included in Tinder bios.
