London, 2016-Aug-22 — /EPR Retail News/ — If you thought that your fellow commuters were starting the day with an upbeat dance track, you’d be wrong. New research by Bose and Currys PC World reveals that the top genre to listen to while making your daily commute is Rock, with 19% of Londoners choosing this type of music.
Trailing closely behind is Pop music (16%) beating out both RnB (10%) and House/Techno (7%). Perhaps surprisingly, Classical music (7%) ranks higher on the chart than Hip Hop/Rap (5%), Drum n Bass (4%), and Reggae (3%).
In terms of most popular artists, Beyonce reigns over the charts, followed by Rihanna and Drake for joint second, and Katy Perry in third. London it seems has fallen out of love with its own artists, with Adele the only London-born artist to make it in the city’s top 5 artists.
