Tinder’s 100 Dating Anthems: The songs that shaped Aussie dating in 2021

Tinder Australia has dropped its Top 100 Dating Anthems list, curated based on the most popular anthems on Aussie Tinder profiles in 2021.

About 40% of all Gen Z members globally have already added anthems to their profiles and when they do, they see a nearly 10% increase in matches.

  • Coming in at #1 was homegrown talent The Kid LAROI’s STAY (ft Justin Bieber)
  • Top Australian artists that made the list included Spacey Jane (with 4x tracks on the list), RÜFÜS DU SOL, Masked Wolf, Rancid Eddie, and The Veronicas
  • TikTok hits INDUSTRY BABY from Lil Nas X ft. Jack Harlow; Kiss Me More from Doja Cat ft. SZA; and Beggin’ from Måneskin, alongside comeback tune Heat Waves from Glass Animals, all ranked in the top 12
  • Global artists Olivia Rodrigo, Drake, Mac Miller, J. Cole and Polo G filled out the top 10
  • The most featured artist is Doja Cat, with 7x songs making the list (and two in the top 10), including Kiss Me More, Need to Know, Woman, and Get Into It (Yuh)

You can listen to Tinder Australia’s 100 Dating Anthems Spotify playlist for the best tunes of 2021 and pre-game for Saturday’s much-anticipated Triple J Hottest 100 countdown

And, taking it one step further, Tinder members can also now vibe out to their potential matches’ favourite songs out loud with the arrival of Music Mode in Australia, the newest immersive experience available in Explore.

Through integration with Spotify, Tinder’s Music Mode now automatically plays members’ chosen anthems – that one song that defines them inside and outright from their profiles. Members who link their Spotify accounts and add an anthem to their Tinder profiles will be able to enter Music Mode.

Tinder Australia Spokesperson Kirsty Dunn said: “Tinder’s Top 100 Dating Anthems from last year are all absolute tunes – with a Christmas classic sprinkled in for good measure! We thought we’d drop this list to give a taste of what’s playing on Tinder – even more so with the recent launch of Music Mode.

“Music is so deeply personal, it ties you to a certain place, or moment or person. Getting to celebrate the awesome hits of the year gone in January every year with our friends and connections is always the perfect way to have some fun and feel the summer vibes down under!”
