Based purely on the hits of the last few years, pop music seems to remain alive and well on college campuses. I’m more of a classic rock guy, but I just pass myself off as an outlier of the stereotypical millennial.

I talked to over 150 students wearing some kind of earphones, to ask them what they were listening to at that very moment. I didn’t want any answers like, “Oh this and that. I listen to everything.”

What over 150 student’s were listening to wasn’t much of a surprise. A lot of Drake, Post Malone and Ariana Grande…

I’m not going to bother mentioning the artists you already hear on the radio and at the mall. Here are a few artists which I thought stood out from the norm…
