Meet Amia, a 20 year old Spotify playlist curator from Bloomington, Indiana.
“I made my playlist 2 or 3 years ago as something to jam when I'm with friends who are either drunk or have a more mainstream, poppy music taste than I normally do.”
Describe your playlist. Perfect situation(s) for jamming it include:
All of the songs on the playlist are selected because they're catchy, upbeat, and easily memorable from the first few moments of the song. They mostly include very mainstream Top 40 pop from the 2000s onwards, with a few very popular throwbacks and a couple joke songs like Cotton Eye Joe and picks from High School Musical.
Who is your favorite artist?
I don't really have a favorite, but Lil Nas X and Lizzo have been putting out some great stuff recently.
What's your favorite show you've ever been to? Describe what made it special:
I saw Fun. when I was pretty young, and there were Gay Pride folks there handing out free Ben & Jerry's ice cream, which was very exciting to me at the time. The music was great and it was staged in a beautiful old Chicago theater.
What song do you currently have on repeat?
Obviously the Old Town Road remix with Mason Ramsey and Young Thug
Who is the first artist you remember connecting to growing up?
Is there any music that turns you off? If so, please list genres / artists:
Country/rap fusions done by white people (i.e. Cruise remix by Florida Georgia Line & Nelly), nightcore, and post-grunge
If you could interview one artist dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Probably Eazy-E, because I think his music was taken from the world due to his death before it should've been. I'd like to know more about his perspective on N.W.A since his side of the debate is pretty unrepresented nowadays, with Ice Cube and Dre dominating the narrative.
What's more important to you: lyrics or production?
