And when I’m bored from constant memorization, listening to some upbeat hits can help me channel my energy. It’s no secret that a good study playlist can definitely make it a lot easier. So, here is the ultimate study playlist to help you through those first few tests of the semester!


1. “Leave The Night On” by Sam Hunt

You’ll fall in love with this catchy, country love song!

All I know is when I’m stuck in a studying rut, blasting some T-Swift can put me in a good mood.

3. “Love Me Like You Do” by Ellie Goulding

This uplifting ballad will motivate you to try and ace that exam!

4. “Sangria” by Blake Shelton

I love this song because it’s not too upbeat, so I feel relaxed and calm once I crack open the books!

By just listening to the lyrics, you will feel 100% more motivated to study. “Cause I’ve been working harder now than I did at the startAnd I won’t stop ’till I get to the top,” and, “I swear I stay on my grind mode, I know I’m getting closer,” are definitely words I’d like to hear while I study!
