CAPE TOWN - Finding the right soundtrack - whether you’re working from home (WFH), or in the office (or maybe, a bit of both) - may be key for some to have a productive day's work.

According to a new Spotify study by Premier Inn, which looked at South Africa's favourite working playlists, The Chainsmokers hit featuring Halsey: ‘Closer’, was the most popular song for office workers, featuring in more office-related playlists than any other track, with Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape of You’ following close behind with 40 playlist features.
