The most popular music genre among the students was Hip-Hop/Rap, but many others prefer a different genre.

“Most of the time I discover new music on TikTok or on Instagram because those are the apps I use the most,” senior Yaritza Coyotl-Flores said.

Meanwhile, other people have a different opinion.

“None of my top songs surprised me because I still listen to them, and they are my favorites,” senior Alondra Hernandez said.

Social media emerges as a significant influence on music taste, as highlighted.

In a more personal connection to a specific artist, she expresses her admiration for Fuerza Regida.

“I like Fuerza Regida, and my goal for the coming year is to go see them at a concert because I enjoyed their music, and it will be great to hear them on stage,” senior Daniela Garcia said.
