Everything You Need to Know About Music in the Workplace

Beyonce’s "Drunk in Love" has special powers.

What music gets you through the work day? For me, it’s a tall serving of Beyoncé or, perhaps, some Frank Sinatra served straight up if I'm feeling especially classy— or lovelorn. But that’s just me.

If you’ve ever been curious as to what’s going on inside the headphones of your coworkers, you’re not alone. In fact, your colleagues are just sitting at the edge of their office chairs waiting to judge you. This, according to Spotify and Dr. Anneli Haake, global expert of music in the workplace, who commissioned research to find out what people are listening to during their 9-5’s.

Here, we've compiled infographics that spell out who's listening, what's being played, and why. Spoiler: MC's favorite torch singer comes out on top.

As anyone with two ears can tell you, different songs serve different purporses. From concentrating on tideous tasks to drowing out chatty coworkers, there's a song for every workplace conundrum. Beyoncé's "Drunk in Love" has special powers, naturally.

Whatever it is that's getting you through the day, just know that you're being watched and hastily judged. To win over your office's resident music snob, be sure to follow Marie Claire on Spotify.
