Spotify and Smirnoff have teamed up to release a new tool that breaks down a user’s listening habits by gender.

The Smirnoff Equalizer was launched to mark International Women’s Day today, in collaboration with Spotify.

It reveals the percentage of female versus male musicians you listen to on the streaming service.

The tool then generates a more gender balanced playlist if your results favour male artists.

The idea for the equaliser was in response to the lack of female representation in Spotify’s 2017 Year In Music statistics.

No women featured in the top 10 most streamed albums worldwide while only two female artists appeared in the top 10 songs.

Ed Sheeran, Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee, The Chainsmokers and DJ Khaled made up the top five most globally streamed songs.

While Sheeran appeared again along with Drake, Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd and Post Malone in the top five most streamed albums worldwide.

Spotify’s new tool is a great way to promote gender equality and broaden your musical horizons.
