    It is well known: motorists like to listen to music while driving. But it can become a source of distraction. Luckily, a British study claims that certain artists help us behave well on the road.

    The car sales site AutoTrader came to this observation by conducting an experiment with 17 volunteers. They had to take a road risk perception test while listening to songs by big names in music such as Beyoncé, Harry Styles and Bach. The researchers measured their ability to identify potentially dangerous situations and gave them a score of 75.

    For emergency braking, trust Drake

    It turns out that drivers were better able to detect the dangers they faced on the road when listening to Drake’s musical repertoire. According to AutoTrader, his songs “Passionfruit” and “In My Feelings” especially helped drivers anticipate dangerous situations, such as emergency braking.

    Ariana Grande and Eminem would also be valuable allies in the car since the study participants who listened to them while driving obtained an honorable score of 58.5 out of 75. The songs “Thank U, next”, “7 Rings”, “The Real Slim Shady” and “Stan” would have allowed them to be more focused on the road.

    Favor hip-hop over classical music

    In general, hip-hop seems to be the style that most encourages attentive driving on the road. Half of the artists in AutoTrader’s top 10 belong to this musical genre. Pop would also have similar virtues thanks to musicians like Billie Eilish (no. 4) or Harry Styles (no. 9).

    One might expect the classical repertoire to have the same effect on motorists’ driving. But that doesn’t seem to be the case: Bach’s compositions didn’t help drivers do well on the risk perception test.

    Of course, the results of this study should be taken with caution. Music in the car can be distracting, regardless of what genre you listen to. Excessive listening volume is not compatible with the concentration necessary to drive. Additionally, it is imperative to use a listening device with a speaker. Headphones or headphones cannot be used while driving. If you follow these rules, feel free to listen to the music playlist of your choice during your car trips. Just be careful not to get carried away by what you’re hearing.
