From graduating Duke University with a degree in sociology to releasing the mega hit “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” in summer 2016, Mike Posner is a man of contradictions. With such a range of talents, including having written hit songs for a range of artists like Maroon 5, Justin Bieber, and Snoop Dogg, Posner knows how to surprise.
So here’s another twist: Though the 28-year-old singer/songwriter/producer may be known for his silvery, hypnotic voice and upbeat, playful beats, his personal music preferences sway more towards mellow acoustics and chill vibes. For Posner’s exclusive playlist, the eclectic artist gave us a mix of laid-back vocals from artists like Lauryn Hill, Bright Eyes, and Josh Ritter, proving that we never have to be just one thing.
