Last week Spotify released the next series in it’s video lineup, featuring NFL stars Von Miller, DeMarcus Ware, Coby Fleener, Tyler Eifert, Rashad Jennings, and others compare music tastes.
‘Trading Playlists’ is the latest video series from Spotify, who have been preparing a line up of original video content for the past year. Their new series takes a look at music in the world of sport, specifically American football players and how their music tastes align with their teammates and cohorts.
From country to rap to classical jazz, some of the NFL’s biggest names offer viewers a humorous look into their musical tastes – and amidst very unique settings
Trading Playlists premiered on September 8th and is produced by digital studio Collab with support from ACE Media, the content arm of the NFL Players Association, and of course Spotify.
