It’s no secret that Uber rides are often awkward for both passenger and driver, so when music fills that unbearable silence and we don’t have to rely on stiff small-talk, it instantaneously makes things a hundred times better. Uber driver TJ Jones (who uses they/them pronouns) decided to cash in on an opportunity to show their creative skills and created 11 personalized playlists for their passengers. And it went viral!
After TJ’s initial tweet racked up 260K likes back in February, people have been flooding their feed with compliments and requests. From “white dudes who look like [they] like rap” to “quiet ppl”, Jones has a playlist for everyone. With the encouragement, the Spotify playlist virtuoso decided to create more collections and is now a professional playlist curator.
