It has become clear that there is a positive correlation between music and brand recognition, you may think of subliminal music used when brands are trying to reinforce their message, such as Intel or McDonald as prime example. In fact, a recent study by Spotify suggested that music streamers are twice as likely to advocate for and feel emotionally connected to a brand and even recommend that brand to friends. Perhaps these music streamers are in a positive and happy frame of mind and thus endorse an advertiser. The Spotify report also suggests that music streamers are 1.5 times more likely to shop online on a weekly basis, they are most likely very comfortable with technology and shopping online.
