Spotify Tips and Trends for Cuffing Season

The air is getting crisper, the mood is getting cozier… and cuffing season is upon us. In fact, there are more than 20,000 “cuffing season” related playlists on Spotify – featuring tracks like “Let Me Love You” by Mario, “My Boo” by Alicia Keys and Usher, “Sweater Weather” by The Neighbourhood, “Thinkin Bout You” by Frank Ocean, “Boo’d Up” by Ella Mai, “Love On The Brain” by Rihanna and “I Want You Around” by Snoh Aalegra.

Wondering when the season reaches a fever pitch? Last year, Spotify saw the biggest daily spike in streams of “cuffing season” playlists on October 28 (550%+), and the highest overall streams on December 13.
