Tinder partners with Spotify to bring music to your matches

Hear that? It's the sound of thousands of Tinder users, all scrambling through their Spotify accounts to find the track that best defines them.

The dating app has partnered with the streaming giant for a series of new music-based features, including a displaying an 'Anthem' on their profile: "single track that tells your story. That one song you can’t get out of your head. Where the lyrics of your life meet the rhythm of your soul." That song that just gets you, yeah?

Other bells and whistles introduced by the Spotify partnership include the ability to play previews of other people’s top songs via Spotify, right from their Tinder profile. Once you connect your Spotify account to Tinder, you'll be able to see which artists you have in common with other users - similar to shared interests and common connections grabbed from your Facebook profile info.

The site's blog suggests you might be able to "make a little music with someone new" - after you've dealt with that sick you've had to swallow. 

Tinder

The new Spotify feature will start rolling out to Tinder users from 21 September. 

So what track do you pick? Do you go for the sentimental? The emotionally exposed? A track with niche appeal to demonstrate your complexity and 'coolness'? Or just an absolute banger?

In a bid to find you the ultimate Anthem song, we asked the women of our sister publication Stylist to pick the songs they'd swipe right for...

  • Come and Get Your Love by Redbone ("It’s soulful, it doesn’t take itself too seriously, it reminds me of the wet dream that is Chris Pratt, and it hints that my Tinder match is into Marvel films")
  • It Only Takes a Minute Girl by Take That ("It would make me laugh and think they didn’t take themselves too seriously")
  • Papa Was A Rolling Stone by The Temptations
  • Two Become One by Spice Girls
  • I’m on Fire by Bruce Springsteen ("SEXY AS HELL")
  • Solitude is Bliss by Tame Impala ("Indicative of a mutual appreciation for quiet and solitude.")
  • Rhiannon by Fleetwood Mac ("I would be all over that like a rash because it shows he appreciates excellent guitar, bitter relationship breakdown and he probably likes wallowing in his own misery as much as I do")
  • September by Earth Wind & Fire 
  • Escape by Rupert Holmes

And no - no one suggested Return of the Mack. Sorry.
