Spotify’s Year-in-Review has some puzzling choices

Not all songs with the word sex in it make the best sex songs.

As 2016 comes to an end, Spotify has released its annual end-of-the-year playlists. What is catching everyone’s attention is the most popular song that people had sex to: “Sex” by Cheat Codes and Kriss Kross Amsterdam.

The U.K. had a different preference: “Sex With Me” by Rihanna.

I wouldn’t have either of these songs on my personal sex playlist, but I guess having the word sex in it alone is enough to label it as a love-making banger.

Here’s more of Spotify’s year-in-review top songs and categories.

  • Top sad song: “Say Something” – A Great Big World
  • Top breakup song: “One Dance” – Drake (feat. WizKid and Kyla)
  • Top party/dance song: “Uptown Funk” – Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars
  • Top workout song: “‘Till I Collapse” – Eminem (feat. Nate Dogg)
  • Top gaming song: “Fort Minor” – Remember The Name (feat. Styles of Beyond)

Most Streamed Tracks 

1. “One Dance” – Drake (feat. WizKid and Kyla) 

2. “I Took A Pill in Ibiza” – Seeb Remix – Mike Posner

3. “Don’t Let Me Down” – The Chainsmokers (feat. Daya) 

4. “Work” – Rihanna (feat. Drake) 

5. “Cheap Thrills” – Sia

Surprisingly, that list differs pretty significantly from Spotify’s Top Tracks of 2016 playlist for the U.S.

Most Streamed Albums 

1. Views – Drake

2. Purpose – Justin Bieber

3. ANTI – Rihanna

4. Blurryface – Twenty One Pilots

5. Beauty Behind the Madness – The Weeknd
