Guy listening to music while studyingMusic is therapeutic.

Procrastination must come to an end. Assignments are piling up and exams are around the corner. Revising and writing a three-thousand-word essay is not fun, but music can somehow make it more enjoyable. Not to mention, time goes faster. 

Just as some people prefer to study at a coffee shop, others prefer the library. So, depending on the person, some people like to study with quiet background music, but others prefer exciting, loud and up-lifting songs.

At the end of the day, we all have different tastes, but here are some suggested tracks to help you study. 

1. Good Days – SZA

The song itself is very melodic and relaxing. The lyrics don’t distract you, but still, you can enjoy listening to them. 

2. Movie – Tom Misch

Tom’s voice is very pleasing, so is the track. The rhythm throughout the whole song is very slow, which helps you to maintain your focus. 

3. Friendzone – UMI

This song is perfect if you want to vibe (just a little, though) without forgetting what you were studying a few seconds ago. 

4. Hit Different – SZA, The Neptunes, Pharrell Williams, Ty Dolla $ign

Studying with a great atmosphere “hits different”, right? This song will help you get your work done, for sure.

5. Meet Me in Amsterdam – RINI

The instrumental of the song, the lyrics, the voice… A whole different vibe. Almost five minutes of heaven. It brings calmness and it lights up the atmosphere.  

6. Ordinary – UMI

A dreamy song. No distractions, only good music that pleases your ear. Her voice is soothing and enjoyable to listen to. 

7. Who Hurt You? – Daniel Caesar

His songs are just good for the soul. That’s it.

8. I Wanna Be Yours – Pink Sweat$, Crush

Is it possible to dance while studying? The best track to listen to if you want to uplift your mood. 

9. Happy Again – UMI

UMI is your best friend when it comes to studying. Her songs will never distract you, nor bother you. You will be “happy again” as soon as the song gets played. 

10. Drivers License – Olivia Rodrigo

This song had to be included. 

11. Antes – Anuel AA, Ozuna

We would all like to go out with our friends, go to pubs and have our routines back, right? Anuel and Ozuna will bring you back to memory lane. Studying and listening to some reggeaton is not impossible unless you can’t resist to it. 

12. Golden – Harry Styles

Harry Style’s voice is perfect for all sorts of occasions. 

13. Streets – Doja Cat

How to keep your concentration while listening to a good song? Doja Cat has the answer. 

14. Put Your Records On – Ritt Momney

Put your records on and get that work done! An ideal song to remind you that you need to listen to the best tracks, even when studying. 

15. Lowkey – NIKI

As she says on the song “be as quiet as you can.” This song calms you down, makes you take it easy. As Frank Ocean once said: “Work hard in silence, let your success be the noise.”
